VERY FINE NORRIS LONDON GUNMETAL SMOOTHING PLANE
Outstanding condition. Very heavy iron and cap both stamped 'Norris London'. This has an unusual profile adjuster. The top of the adjuster has a brass nut and the bottom has a figural shape (photo of this to come). The heavy bronze pivoting cap is not stamped Norris that I can make out. On the toe of the plane is stamped 'W. Ashby'. An extremely well made plane, but I'm not convinced it's a Norris plane for sure. Any information would be appreciated. The wood appears to be mahogany.
