SOLD N173 Vintage NORRIS A5 London Infill Smoothing PLANE

Sale Sold out


Vintage plane - N173:

A genuine vintage NORRIS A5 closed handle infill SMOOTHING PLANE post WW2 with an Ebonised Beech infill & its genuine NORRIS parallel blade.

Considered the ROLLS ROYCE of planes by many including Fine Woodworking magazine, they are an absolute delight to use, sharpen it up & you’ll be taking gossamer shavings off cranky boards of timber with gusto.

 A tight mouth & a 2 & 1/8” / 54mm cutter.

Weight: 2kg 


This plane is in authentic vintage condition, wear and tear consistent with age and use, some light scratches to the sole & tiny pits in a couple of spots on the sides, a previous owners name on the rear infill. Some wear to the ebonised finish, but it carries it well. 

Please check the photos as they are part of the description.
