The Verdict

Review By: I.Ball


Manufacturer: Various

Tool Type: Wooden Planes

Plane Type: Lambs Tongue Sash Moulding

The old British wooden lambs tongue sash moulding planes had a hardwood body, a steel plane cutter and a hardwood wedge.

The planes were nearly always made from beech as this was the hardwood that was commonly available in Britain.

The wooden lambs tongue sash moulding planes were made in a variety of widths.

A wooden lambs tongue sash moulding plane cutter has a cutting edge profile which mirrors the sole of the plane.

The plane has a window to one side of the cutter and above the cutter to allow the shavings to escape as the wood is planed.

The manufacturer's mark (if present) can virtually always be found on the front nose of the plane. If the plane is quite mucky or you hadn’t realised, this is the place to look to identify who made it.

Most planes also have an owner's name or many owner's names stamped into the front of the plane; these can often be easily spotted as they have been stamped more than once on the plane.

If you wish to delve deeper there are a few books out there to help identify the age of the plane(s).

The authority of these books has to be W L Goodman’s ‘British Planemakers fom 1700 – third edition’ book but be prepared to pay some money for this book as it is no longer available to buy new (at the time of writing this) and secondhand copies of the book are in demand.
