Oliver Sparks Violin Makers Plane
A beautifully wrapped little parcel arrived today finished off with a blob of ceiling wax.
This little plane is just 30 mm (1 1/4") long with a 1/2" wide blade.
The dovetails are superb for such a tiny scale and the mouth is very tight. Despite its diminutive size it is very comfortable to hold (one handed of course) and works very well.
I have an antique violins makers plane, they make a great pair. I believe Oliver has another two of these planes for sale if anyone is interested.
