Fore Plane, 18th Century, Worcester County, Massachusetts

Rhykenology - The Study Of Wooden Planes

Courtesy of Dan Linski of the FB Rhykenology: The Study Of Wooden Planes group comes this exceptional fore plane. A bit of history: Some years ago I purchased this plane through Ebay and subsequently sold it. Dan Linski purchased it at a MWTCA meet and posted these pics to the Rhykenology group. All of which indicates that I've been in this way too long.

Pat Lasswell opines: "I believe this style comes from Worcester County, MA... matching R Bacon, Jn Tower, U Clap, H Healy, B Child, D Hubbard"
