About me

What I do

image3

I collect, restore, refurbish, retain, and occasionally, resell antique iron hand planes.  I also research and write about Sears, Roebuck & Co. in-house brands, Fulton, Merit, Craftsman, and Dunlap planes.  

Hand Planes of your dreams

The antique iron hand planes I refurbish are finished to a level far exceeding any of the original manufacturers.  These planes are both functional tools and show pieces.
