MARPLES M44 Plough Plane
A scarce and little used MARPLES M44 plough plane.
Full set of eight near full length tungsten steel cutters (1/8, 3/16, 1/4, 5/16, 3/8, 7/16, 1/2 and 9/16 inch) in the original (split) red pouch. The majority appear to have their original factory grind with the four largest marked 'W MARPLES SHEFFIELD ENGLAND'. Some surface pitting and staining spots, please see images.
Complete with depth stop, long and short fence arms, fence and cutter clamping screw.
Near full trade label remains to the top of the handle.
Good nickel plating with only a few loss patches, mainly to the short fence arms and top of the body.
All parts move freely and tighten securely.
In the original, slightly tatty, card box with trade labels and torn MARPLES leaflet.
A very good example.
