Universal Combination Plane
CUTTERS FOR UNIVERSAL PLANE.
This is altogether the most complete tool of its class that has ever been placed upon the market, and in the hands of a mechanic it can be used for nearly all lines of work covered by full assortment of what are known as Fancy Planes.
A customer of ours recently repaired his own dwelling, and in doing this needed to match some of the old mouldings. He procured an estimate from a wood-working factory, and found that the cost to him of the necessary mouldings would be greater than the cost of this plane, with which his carpenter had no difficulty in matching all the mouldings at very small expense. On the following two pages we show a line of Cutters that are suitable to use in this plane. The ones marked with a small black diamond (•) are furnished with the planes; the others we can supply at prices as per accompanying list.
It is a MOULDING PLANE, MATCH, SASH, BEADING, REEDING, FLUTING, HOLLOW, ROUND, PLOW, RABBET and FILLISTER, DADO, SLITTING and CHAMFER PLANE combined in one.
