RARE ENCLOSED HANDLE SPIERS SMOOTHER

£295.00

Product Information

VERY RARE early SPIERS of AYR parallel sided dovetailed steel smoothing plane with ORIGINAL FULLY ENCLOSED rear handle. Gunmetal lever cap with the earliest small Spiers stamp and dark rosewood infill. The large fully enclosed rear handle has its original long spur. The plane comes with a superb thick parallel iron by Stormont Brothers of Sheffield which is cast steel and probably an old replacment due to its long length. The plane has had some brass inays to the rosewood infill done by a previous owner which is quite a nice feature. The plane is in basically very good condition although there is slight pitting to the metal on one side. These enclosed handled Spiers smoothing planes are very rare, they hardly ever turn up as it was quite expensive at the time, compared with the normal open handled example and was a special order. 2 1/4" wide blade.
