Manufacturer: Various

Tool Type: Wooden Planes

Plane Type: Slipped Bead


The old British wooden slipped bead plane is basically a wooden bead plane with a section of the side of the plane which can be removed via screws running through the side of the plane.

From my observations, slipped beads are commonly the smaller sized planes.

Also from my observations I believe in the history of wooden planes, the slipped beads were a slightly later addition, probably began being made in 1800's, possibly late 1700's.
