STEER’S PATENT PLANE #303 ROSEWOOD INLAID SOLE
Steer's patent 303 smooth plane. William Steer's was granted a patent on Sept 11 1883 (click here for more info). This plane is in good condition. The often broken tote is in good shape. A previous owner thought it would look better with a knob painted black. The rosewood sole is in better than usually found shape. All adjustments work as they should. The blade though sharp has some pitting near the cutting edge. The screws that open and close the mouth are stiff and will need some loosening up.
