This beautiful coachmakers plough plane went past my limit last week on a well-known auction site. I should have gone higher, but a limit is a limit. It’s a stunning tool with a fence that will work around curves, such as a coachmaker might require.
I have had so many coachmaker-related tools of this kind pass through my lock-up, I’m more and more keen to find a book that shows the variety and uses of all the different types. Like coopering, the art is now pretty much lost, but if anyone has information on a great book out there that deal with all the various challenges with coach building, or if you know of a good book about the tools used, please let me know.
Meanwhile, here’s the stunning plough I really should have gone higher on… 😉
