Plane of the Week with Ryan Sparreboom

  Mathieson in March - Part 4 1 of 5  

This week, in the final installment of “Mathieson in March,” we will look at a few planes made by the Mathieson firm. I will also discuss some of the Mathieson maker marks, and the approximate period during which these marks appeared.

Over the past several weeks, I have introduced and discussed a great deal of the history of the Mathieson Company. We have looked at tools made by John Manners, the Stewarts, David Arthur, John McGlashan, and David Malloch.

Some of the Mathieson tools in my collection.

I have explained the relationship between these makers and the Mathieson Company, all of whom contributed to Mathieson’s success.

The plane shown below is a 17-inch badger plane and is one of the earliest Mathieson planes I own.

The badger plane features a skewed iron set to one side. It can be used as a large rebating plane or simply as a skewed jack plane. This example features one of Mathieson’s early marks, a script style stamp and it simply reads “Mathieson.”

This mark appears on tools made from approximately 1822 until approximately 1850 and planes with this mark are very rare.
