  Shoulder Planes - Samples and Comparison 2 of 4  

Shoulder planes come in all shapes and sizes.
These are just  a few of my favorite.

This gunmetal plane by John William Thackeray of Leeds is over
a century old now and is my favorite 3/4" plane.

It squares and refined shoulders perfectly. The infill is African ebony.

This is a 1" wide shoulder plane by Henry Slater of London, 1868-1909.
Again, ebony was used for infill.

It has a "Three Shamrocks" Marples iron, probably original to this plane.
