Saw Set


Richard Arnold on 18th Century English Tools

  John Sym's Sash Fillister by Richard Arnold 1 of 2  

My latest find is a superb sash fillister by John Sym of Westminster, London, 1753-1803.


The overall color and patina of this plane is just about perfect. There is no substitute for over 200 years of workshop life. It has the uncommon cupids bow escapement.

There are a number of interesting features on this plane. The ball finial for the depth stop is unusual.
