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+
