Spiers Of Ayr Plane Review By: I.Ball

Manufacturer: Spiers Of Ayr
Plane Type: Infill, Smoothing
Model No: 2


This model of Spiers Of Ayr infill smoothing plane is classed as a parallel sided smoothing plane due to the flat plane sides running parallel to each other.

The plane is also usually dovetailed (the sole is dovetailed with the sides), Dovetailed planes took much more skill to make than the cast style of plane body.

The plane had rosewood infills consisting of a front bun and a rear section which supported the plade blade and had the rear handle.

The quality lever cap was made from brass. The lever cap may have had different markings / different styles of markings depending upon the time at which the plane was made. The lever cap had the markings 'Spiers Ayr'.

"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."
