Today's Featured Tool Description

Howell, D.S./Des Moines, Ia. : Unusual Adjustable Scraper Plane. "Pat Applied For". "Price $2.00". Length: 8.00 Inches. A most unusual ADJUSTABLE SCRAPER PLANE by D.S. Howell, Des Moines, Iowa. The brass plate behind the scraper blade is marked with the designation "Pat. Applied for" and the additional information "Price $2.00". A pair of round head screws are employed to adjust the tension on the blade. We would rate this among the five best scraper planes patented and produced in the State of Iowa. Having said enough at this point, with that last snide comment, to raise the ire of the Populist Masses, we will refrain from making any suggestion that this is a combination tool that also functioned as a corn husker. It just wouldn't be fair. From the Bill Linstromberg Collection. (GOOD+). This item was sold on October 14, 2006 for $110.00. jpg_file
