Product Description

This is a plane that didn't make the production line. Thomas-Lie Nielsen has verified that about 100 were made. It was was gifted to David by Thomas Lie-Nielsen.

This plane is hand inscribed on one side of the plane (level with the frog) "FOR DC Lie Nielsen 5/11/05. On the other side it is hand inscribed MAS MARK SWANSON 5/11/05 (Swanson was Lie Nielsen Toolworks pattermaker at the time). The casting marks are LIE-NIELSEN (in front of the low front knob) No. 5 1/8 (behind this knob), 2004 USA (behind the rear handle). Lie-Nielsen blade. Rosewood handles.

The plane is 8 1/2" long. The sole is 1 1/2" wide. it is 3 1/4" high. The blade width is 1 3/16" wide x 3/32" thick and 4 5/8" long - so you can deduce that this is quite an unusual sized plane indeed.

This is an extremely scarce plane. It is in extremely good condition as you would expect of David Charlesworth.
