Category: Old Smoothing Planes
Plane Type: Smoothing
Model No: Brass
The brass GTL smoothing plane is as the name suggests, a plane made
predominantly from brass.
The plane is constructed with a brass body, brass frog and brass lever cap along with a Norris style blade adjuster, a steel blade, steel cap iron and hardwood rear handle / front knob set.
The lever cap bears the markings 'GTL'.

Smuggy - I've been collection tools for 20 years and I always have a couple of these
planes in my collection.
Some say that as a user plane they are hopeless but seriously, who would ever use them. They are beautiful to look at and are nice to display. I suppose that is the difference between a collector and a user of planes.
