Cyrus Hardy Patent. Most examples of the very rare Hardy patent sold by Boston Metallic Plane Co., with its large holes in the sole that reduced friction but increased breakage, are jack planes or longer. This is a 9" smoothing plane, which we've never seen before. One of the screws that holds the tote to the base is missing, and there's a crack at the base of the knob, but it's otherwise in very nice shape with good clean geometric design on the lever cap.

Rodier's patent was for his adjustment mechanism, intended to simultaneously regulate the set of the cutter and the width of the mouth, but his planes are best known for their corrugated sides and the serpentine grooves cast into the sole. This one is in immaculate condition, with 21-1/2" sole and 2-3/8" thick Buck Bros. cutter, and Rodier's patent date cast into the lever cap (PTAMPIA II, Figure 197a.

Based on Solon Rust's 1882 patent which is stamped on the wide brass adjustment knob characteristic of these uncommon planes. 23" sole, 2-5/8" D.R. Barton cutter. End of rosewood tote is sheared off.

We've seen a few of these planes around and are pretty sure they're manufactured, but it isn't marked and we're not sure who made it. Very similar to toy planes on PTAMPIA II, page 149. 3" oval shaped sole, unmarked cutter held on with a simple knurled screw. Japanning nearly complete.Fine 80-150 NOTE: Absentee bidding ends 5:00pm EST on Friday, March 29, 2019. Live auction is at Camp Hill Radisson, 9:00am, March 30, 2019, Camp Hill, PA.

This is the tool shown in Figure 159 of PTAMPIA I. Roger identifies it as a weatherstripping plane and speculates that it may be based on Daniel Whitker's 1866 patent for a "rabbet saw" that uses a saw blade rather than plane cutter to cut the edge of the rabbet. Unlike the PTAMPIA example, this one has the name of the Wash Co. of Chicago clearly cast into the side, and has traces of red japanning. A very rare plane.Good+ 250-500 NOTE: Absentee bidding ends 5:00pm EST on Friday, March 29, 2019. Live auction is at Camp Hill Radisson, 9:00am, March 30, 2019, Camp Hill, PA.

A very rare example of a blade adjustment mechanism patented in the UK, in 1884, and manufactured by John Munks Son of Sheffield. Uses a direct screw adjustment similar to the more common (but still rare) Challenge plane. See PTAMPIA II, page 168. 6-3/4" long with cast iron tote, cutter held by brass wingnut.

See PTAMPIA I, page 178 for the full story.

The plane invented by Russell Phillips in 1867 is one of the earliest and most dramatic in appearance of the metal plow planes. Before they were produced in cast iron by Babson and Repellier, Phillips produced a limited number in gunmetal under the name of The Phillips Plough Plane Co. of Boston. Four of these extraordinarily rare planes are known, each engraved in detail on the skate with the names of Phillips' company and the Metallic Compression Casting Co. Ownership of one of these planes is one of the holy grails of any collector of patented planes and it would be the centerpiece of any collection. This one is very clean, with the brass never polished and a couple of tiny chips from the rosewood tote, and it includes a set of 10 original cutters with the distinctive rod protruding from the side. The names of two prior owners have been stamped in the top rail (including the late Jock Moody). Simply a superb example of one of the most desirable planes in all of tool collecting. From the John and Janet Wells collection.Fine 15000-25000 NOTE: Absentee bidding ends 5:00pm EST on Friday, March 29, 2019.

Mayo's improvement, the first version shown in Plate 17 of PTAMPIA I. All proper parts, rosewood tote fine, pinstriping nearly complete. Doesn't have the "Babson Repellier" mark on the skate, but skate and fence have matching assembly numbers. A super nice example of one of the most graphic and attractive iron plows. User name lightly stamped on tote. From the John and Janet Wells collection.Fine 600-1200 NOTE: Absentee bidding ends 5:00pm EST on Friday, March 29, 2019.

Uses the complex three-way adjustment mechanism of Palmer's 1867 patent, and closely resembles the Metallic Plane design but doesn't have Metallic's name or anything else cast into the bed or stamped on the cheeks.
