Item CP8 - Kellett’s Patent Plane Blade.  Sept 16, 1884. 

This reasonable and straight-forward patent provides both for a reduction of the amount of expensive hard tool steel needed in the blade of a bench plane, and a facilitation of the time and energy spent sharpening it.  Mr. William Kellett’s (of Chicago, Ill) invention provides for creating a full length blade of hard tool steel, but only about 1/32” thick, and then backing it with much thicker (1/8”) piece of mild steel.  The two plies are held together with a nut and bolt arrangement.  This example (the first that I’ve seen) seems a sensible alternative to thick and hard to sharpen laminated steel blades.  This example is full llength, and suffers only some light and meaningless pitting near the top.  Good+
