Rare Slipped Panel Raising Plane by GRIFFITHS
A scarce and little used large slipped panel raising plane by GRIFFITHS of Norwich.
Panel raising planes are typically 8-9 inches long and may be with or without full length fences.
There are 3 fixing holes on the sole where the previous owner has attached a fence at some time in the past.
This example would have originally had a full length slip to allow it to be used as a skewed bench plane if required.
Marked 'GRIFFITHS NORWICH' on the toe.
Fitted with a skewed 21/2 inch SORBY blade iron with matching MARPLES cap iron.
Both the back of the wedge and the screw channel on the frog/blade iron seat are marked '2'.
Previous owner's mark 'N.TOKELOVE'.
A few minor surface knocks and scratches.
31/2 inches wide by 151/4 inches overall length.
A fine rare example.
