Norris Metal Planes

This catalog, a reprint of the two most important Thomas Norris catalogs, represents almost the full line of Norris planes up through the end of the 1920's. The 1914 catalog introduced the patented adjuster feature. Illustrations in the later catalog, from around the mid-1920ís, were redone to show off the adjuster feature. The Norris section from the 1938 catalog of the famous London tool merchant Buck & Ryan is also included here.


As a bonus, four pages of new color photographs of a number of these highly sought-after planes from the collection of the Museum of Woodworking Tools have been added. This is an essential catalog for anyone interested in acquiring a Norris, or just interested in the company's style of tools and place in hand tool history.
