Full Set of 8 Plough Plane Irons. This is a full set of eight matched plow plane irons made by the firm of Charles Nurse & Co. In London, England between 1887 and 1908.
The set is numbered 1 through 8, with 1 being the narrowest and 8 being the widest. All of the blades are stamped with the same makers mark: C. They are of the snecked type, with that small protrusion off the right side of their heels, which makes it easier to remove the iron from the plane when changing cutters. And they are all grooved in the back, of course. Nominal widths are 1/8 3/16 1/4 5/16 3/8 7/16 1/2 9/16.
They range in length from 8¼ to 8½, with the ¼ size having seen the most use and sharpening. It appears that they have all been sharpened fairly recently. The 8 irons together weigh 2 pounds. The blades are made from laminated steel, with the harder carbon steel that forms the cutting edge being 1/8 thick and extending back about 2½ from the cutting edge. This layer can be seen easily in the close-up (photo #6) of the cutting edges.
No rust and no chipped edges. Some peening to the back ends. For buyers outside the U. If you live outside the U. If you wait to pay for the item(s) at a later time, the item may no longer be available when you go to pay.
Honestly, I just dont want you to be disappointed by missing out on the item because you waited too long to pay for it; that has happened to too many buyers. That's a fair policy for both of us.
