UK Planes and their Makers

  Sykon's Convertible Plane - The Artisan, January 1, 1852, (London: John Williams & Co.)  

These planes, which we noticed in our last volume, arc designed to save joiners the expense of purchasing a quantity of moulding planes, by making one stock serve for a set of moulds.

Fig 1 is a section of a stock, showing how the mould is fitted to it and Fig. 2 shows the sections of three other moulds of usual forms, which may be fitted to the same stock.

The inventor states that he would fix them so that the mouth of the plane should be enlarged or contracted, so as to fit any sort of work.
