Fulton Smooth Plane 1930's Era No. 3 Size
Offering this very nice, clean No. 3 size (9" long) (smooth bottom) smooth plane retaining about 50% of it's original paint, this plane is in very good working condition with nice solid rosewood stained handle and front knob. The tote or handle has some minor wear, but is solid, and not cracked, still functional, good smooth finish. The knob is nice, with some of the stain worn off, very solid. This plane cutter iron is 1.75" wide, and marked "FULTON MADE IN U.S.A." on the cutter. There is no cracks in the metal castings, little wear or a few edge dings, minor scratches on the bottom. The bottom is clean, flat and smooth, some minor staining noted on the bottom mostly, no rust, very clean, little sign of use. There is plenty of length on the sharp cutter, and all the adjustments work smoothly. This 1930's era model, feature a press form steel frog, very sturdy, and both cutter depth adjustment, and lateral adjustment, a very nice cap cover design! We are not sure why some of the original paint is missing, because this is one of the cleanest we have seen of this size by Fulton in a long time. The quality of this plane is comparable to Sargent or Stanley, made to last a life time and then some! A very nice smooth plane, well preserved, and in very good working order!
