The well known old iron carriage maker planes have a 45 degree bed and operate a bevel down blade (like most iron smoothing planes and iron jack planes).

The carriage makers plane blade and cap iron are a special 'T' shape in order to fit into the plane wall openings.

The carriage makers plane is an advancement of the Wooden Badger Plane.

As the name of the plane suggests, it was a tool type well suited to carriage makers / coach makers who worked panels and carriage doors.

In the late 1800's, Stanley began selling their Stanley 10 and Stanley 10 1/2 Carriage Makers Plane which were made for about 100 years.

"Just stumbled across your website and an absolute treasure trove of information. I was recently given an old Stanley 110 block plane and wanted to know more about it. Your website told me everything I needed to know.

But there is so much more to read. I forsee me spending a lot of time just reading page after page. I can appreciate how much time this will have taken to put together.

I just wanted to let you know that your hard work is appreciated."
