Episode 3 of TOOL STORIES
Vintage Tool Shop BUYS lots of tools from many different vendors & you never know what might walk through the door….
Sometimes we get tools that have a bit of a BACKSTORY & in amongst this amazing collection of STANLEY PLANES purchased from SCOTT in Sydney was a fairly ordinary looking STANLEY England No:5 1/2 PLANE. It has an incorrect front knob & a handmade rear handle & an Australian cutter.
It used to be owned by a Mr. GEORGE COATES, Scotts mentor, who was a ships carpenter & an exceptional tradesman at GARDEN ISLAND Navy Base in SYDNEY. The amazing thing about this plane is the tag that Mr Coates attached to his plane documenting its travels!
This plane is SOLD via our ONLINE SHOP at www.VintageToolShop.com.au
Lots more STANLEY PLANES available from the same collection - 8s, 7s, 6s, 5s, 5 & 1/2s, 4 & 1/2s, 4s, 3s & more - in our shop at 549 High st, Northcote Melbourne Vic 3070 Australia.
