PLEASE FIND FOR SALE ONE, VERY RARE, BEAUTIFUL BOXWOOD, CHARIOT STYLE, BULLNOSE PLANE with a brass toe. THE PLANE IS NOT STAMPED AS TO THE MAKER. SOME THINK IT IS NOT A MARPLES PRODUCTION BUT THE WORK OF A CRAFTSMAN. MORE THEN ONE SOURCE BELIEVES IT COULD VERY WELL BE A MARPLES MANUFACTURED PLANE. I VIEWED ONE LIKE IT WITH THE MAKER STAMPED ATKINS & SONS. THE ATKINS COMPANY COULD OF BROKERED THE PLANE THEREFORE LEAVING THIER STAMP ON IT. THE NAME STAMPED ON THE PLANE, J. COLTON, WITH THE HELP OF A FELLOW MEMBER OF THE RYKONOLOGY BLOG on Facebook, I found, a JAMES COLTON born 1834 in LONDON that TRADES AS A WALING STICK MAKER, THIS MAY BE THE PERSON WHO ONCE OWNED THIS PLANE. THE IRON IS WARD & PAYNE OF WEST ST. David WARD FOUNDED THE COMPANY IN 1803 AS A EDGE-TOOL MANUFACTURE. PAYNE JOINED THE COMPANY AS A JUNIOR PARTNER SOMETIME BEFORE 1850. A VERY SIMULAR PLANE IS FOUND IN THE PRESTIGIOUS BOOK’ANTIQUE WOODWORKING TOOLS’ by David R. SIMULAR but not THE SAME PLANE. BASED ON THE INFORMATION COLLECTED IN THIS SEARCH I WOULD FEEL SAFE TO SAY THIS PLANE WAS MADE IN THE MID TO LATE 1800s. THE PLANE SOLE IS 2 1/2 INCHES X 1 1/2″ AND THE CUTTER IS 1″. THE PLANE IS BOXWOOD, BRASS AND STEEL WITH A BEAUTIFUL PATINA. THANKS FOR LOOKING AND GOOD LUCK. THE PITANA ON THIS PLANE IS.

THIS TOWN WAS NOTED FOR THE PRODUCTION OF KNIFES. By 1600 Sheffield was the main center of cutlery production in England outside London, and in 1624 The Company of Cutters in Hallamshire was formed to oversee the trade. Examples of water-powered blade and cutlery workshops from around this time can be seen at the museums in Sheffield. This town of Sheffield is very populous and large, the streets narrow, and the houses dark and black, occasioned by the continued smoke of the forges, which are always at work: Here they make all sorts of cutlery-ware, but especially that of edged-tools, knives, razors, axes, chisels, saws and nails. CHISELS PLANES & STUFF. Rrcollectibles1877 A short history. At 11 years old, in the summer of 1960, I had 8 different part time fobs. Some yard maintenance and some babysitting. At first, I walked my routes in a small, at the time, in the outer edges or LA county. I loved the bike. At 16 years old I left home and worked full time in a metal fabrication department for a company that made patio furniture. I was the second fastest production operator on the brake and punch out presses in the plant. The Forman was the fastest. Also crushed 4 digits on my hands. At 19 years old I was a Sargent in charge of an Airborne Infantry Squad which had a M-60 machine gun crew. I was sent to the Republic of Viet Nam. Was wounded in the end of 67. When I came home I couldn’t find a comfortable place to work so started my own business. After about 10,000 belts and a good number of bags, satchels and key fobs I moved on to Jewelry. Atlanta, Virginia Beach, New York City, all the big towns in Ohio, then on to Detroit, Ann Arbor, Chicago, and many cities in between then back down south. While doing the touring I received over 70 awards for design and craftsmanship. By the time I was 40 I had my own jewelry store and became a Graduate Gemologist (GIA) in Delray Beach Florida. During that time, I designed, developed, and taught the jewelry program for the Boca Raton Museum. I moved back to Colorado (was born in Denver) about 10 years ago. Yes, I’m no spring chicken. For the last several years I have been creating works in wood and have plans to combine gems with fine wood products. In the mean time I started collecting antique woodworking tools. I studied and worked with many a vintage tool. Realizing I could find good tools at auctions and bring them to the public at a lower price that I had been paying. I LOVE OLD TOOLS MOSTLY WOODWORKING TOOLS BUT I MAY VARY A LITTLE. I ALSO LIKE ART AND CRAFTS, HAVING BEEN A CRAFTSMAN ALL MY LIFE. SOMETIMES I CAN ONLY KEEP IT FOR A WHILE.
