Which Of The Edward Preston & Sons Planes Made It Into The Record Lineup?
When Record Tools acquired the production rights for the planes formally manufactured by Edward Preston & Sons, a number of Edward Preston planes ended up in Record's own product line.
I've converted some of the plane dating information found in Patrick Leach's Plane Type Study into an easy-to-use hypertext flowchart.
Hopefully by answering a few questions about your plane you can determine which type it is.
Primarily, this site looks at hand planes made by The Steel Nut & Joseph Hampton Ltd., (SNJH) and Woden Tools Ltd., at Wednesbury and later, Sheffield.
The Woden hand plane is not a common tool when compared with the numbers still around from other vintage makers such as Stanley and Record.
Send them to me and I'll add them to the flowchart...) If you find errors or discrepancies, Patrick's Plane Type Study is the final authority.
Britain may have ruled the waves at sea, but she also got involved in the anchor business.
Some were copies of the US Stanleys while others were, and are, unique.
