Henry Slater Meredith Street, Clerkenwell, London.

This one is similar to the Norris No.12.

Smoothing plane made by Henry Slater. The iron and cap iron are not named but probably by W. Marples who made all irons for Henry Slater.

Rosewood infill's are damaged (see photos) but really lovely figuring, these are held in by screws inserted to body sides of the plane. The brass lever cap has a typical makers stamp. Plane sizes 9 Inches by 2 1/4 inches

The lever cap, front bun and rear infill have been secured to the iron body with screws.

Unlike many infill planes the front bun on these Slaters is not overstuffed. The spur on the handle of this plane has very small chips and abrasions.

OK so the plane has had repairs, they have been executed with care and offer an insight into the differing methods which can be used for supporting a cracked tote.

A nice solid user plane despite the repairs, Iron is sharp and ready for use.

Please email for Post and Packing, my charges are not excessive.
