Stanley Planes


Making and Using Tools - Planes, Scrapers, and Shaves



"Prior to the eighteenth century, almost all planes were made by their users. This was part of the 'ate and mysterie' that was imparted to the apprentice by the master, and his early training included the making of plane stock for the blades the master provided.

There was little standardization of form, and the maker was free to indulge his fancy in style and decoration."
