NORRIS A5 Smoothing Plane
A tidy NORRIS A5 smoothing plane.
Marked 'NORRIS LONDON' on the lever cap and adjuster wheel.
Fitted with a 21/8 inch parallel blade iron and matching cap iron. The iron is marked 'NORRIS LONDON' on the front with 'ROBT SORBY SHEFFIELD ENGLAND' on the reverse. Approximately 15/8 inches remain below the slot.
This post war example has good beechwood infill with much of the original black ebonised finish still present.
The remains of the original engine turned finish can be seen on the sides.
Some minor scratches, pitting and staining spots.
The adjuster is smooth and works well.
No obvious previous owner's marks.
75/8 inch sole.
A good, honest example.
