Item WP7 - Side Bead Molding Planes, 5/16” &  ”

This working  pair of side beads are both single boxed and very similar.  One bears just the mark of “H. Chapin” and the other, “H. Chapin” and the Union Factory mark.  Both are marked on the heels with the same catalog number—123.  Moreover, both are marked with the same owner’s stamp,  C. Mellovist.  The ” size (the Union Factory plane) is also marked on the heel with the stamp of the J. E. Basset hardware Co. in New Haven.  There is little doubt that Mr. Mellovist lived near New Haven.  The planes show little wear, although the 5/16” size has a little more wear to the sole at the toe.  The wedges are near perfect. Both are straight and will work well.  Easily Good+.
