Just finished a custom reproduction tote for a Palmers & Stokes patent plane made by Metallic Plane company. The tote had to be made from pictures only because there was no original to go by. The knob was refinished to match the tote which was stained to match those found in my research. I don’t think the knob is original, but is most likely craftsman made, as was a tote that was on the plane when my customer purchased it.
Fitting the tote to the plane base , especially around the boss, was tricky but the end results were well worth the effort. It has a factory fitted look.
This plane is owned by Randy Roeder, owner of the Miller’s Falls website and it is on its way to him right now. Hope he likes it.
It is very gratifying to help keep and old tool working as it was designed to. I am passionate about keeping the old tools repaired/restored and working the way they were intended to.
As always thanks for stopping by and please feel free to leave a comment.
