Lot No: 10 in our September 2021 auction is an antique Pre-War 20 ½” Norris No: A1 Infill jointer plane with a good length original iron and rosewood infill, in good used condition. This plane has been cared for and hasn’t seen a hard life and retains some of its original lacquer to the infill. All parts work properly and we have checked the adjuster to ensure it works as it should.
Whilst I’ve put a conservative estimate, these don’t come up for auction too often and good examples like this, deserve to be valued far beyond and above the estimate and regularly made far in excess of this in years gone past. They certainly don’t make them anymore and these are a great investment and statement piece.
Those who have these planes never regret buying or owning them as they are just awesome tools.
