Infill Jack Plane with PRESTON Lever Cap *SOLD*
An interesting iron infill jack plane.
155/8 inches long, this has the appearance of a Scottish infill plane.
Fitted with a 21/2 inch WARD & PAYNE blade iron and unmarked cap iron.
The brass lever cap has a lovely knurled thumb screw and is marked with the PRESTON EP trade mark and '21/2' size on the back.
Tyhere are also two metal lugs at the top of the frog to support the iron - please see close-up image
Nicely figured walnut infill.
The sole has six shallow grooves along its length, no quite a corrugated sole but probably created by a previous owner for similar reasons.
Some surface pitting and staining patches.
Previous owner's stamps 'J.McCONNELL'.
A good looking plane.
