Fluting Planes

These planes are first seen in the 1862 Catalogue listed as a Fluting Plane with handle [?] ..no item number and no size stipulated.   With the introduction of an item numbering system in the 1873 Catalogue, Fluting Planes show as #869 but again no size[s] are stipulated. This situation is echoed in 1897 with #994 being applied to these planes at 3/- each.  At last a size is shown (to 5/8″) in 1909 and as Item #3016. They seem to be phased out before 1921 and still do not appear in the 1928 Catalogue. [Many planes did not appear in 1921 due to range reduction because of WWI, but emerged again in the 1928 Catalogue. Not so this one!]
