Rare! THORESTED NYC Miter Plane - 85909

$ 1,195.00
Item #: 85909

GOOD+ condition with no issues. Nine inches long. Original two inch BUTCHER iron. Tight mouth. Even pitting all around. Cast iron with rosewood infill. George THORESTED worked in NYC 1856-59 at 5 Hammersley Street. Only the "A"� in "Hammersley"� is still visible on the cap screw. Incredible!

In the mid to late 1800s there were a group of machinist planemakers who must have studied the same material as their planes were very similar. These men were:
Napoleon Erlandsen & son Julius, father and son, worked in NY 1865-1935.
Lauritz BRANDT (1808-1887) working 1842,
Charles TOLLNER worked in NYC circa 1851-61.,
Joseph POPPING worked in NYC 1884-1895.
George THORESTED worked in NYC 1856-59.
Knorr & Mantz probably worked in NYC 1880-90.
These NYC planes, especially the miter planes were quite similar.
some were dovetailed but most were cast iron, all with adjustable throat plates.
They are characterized by their rosewood buns affixed to the iron.
