Add To Your WishlistMARPLES M78 Rebate Plane with Brass Plate



A rare and very tidy MARPLES M78 duplex rabbet or rebate fillister plane.

Any version of this MARPLES plane is scarce however ones with the brass plate are few and far between.

It is thought that the casting mark was ground away and the brass plate riveted in place.  The red paint can be seen on the edges of the plate indicating that it was fitted before the ground casting was touched up, please see close-up image.

Fitted with a good length 11/2 steel cutter marked 'W MARPLES SHEFFIELD ENGLAND', a few minor surface spots, please see images.

Black lever cap.

Retains the majority of its original red finish throughout with the full trade label to the inside of the casting.

Complete with fence arm, fence, depth stop and spur.

All parts move freely and tighten securely.

85/8 inch sole length.

A very good example of a rare MARPLES plane.
