English Hand Tools with Jim Hendricks

  Mr. Slater - Two Generations 2 of 2  

The "transitional" period where castings were wedge affairs and the infill
plane retained the concept from woodies gone before.

The evolution of the Slater casting from early wedge tabs to the thinner
sleeker lines of the lever cap.

Two generations of infill planes by Henry Slater of Clerkenwell London.

Note the heavier casting of the early wedged Slater infill compared with
the thinner lines of the gunmetal lever cap version of later years.
This one on the left marketed and sold by Tyzack of London,
still selling on the Internet today!
