Stanley 40 scrub plane

offered 1896 - 1962

9 1/2"  long with  a 1 1/4" cutter 

Often missing lever cap or cutter. Those parts are worth more than the plane body or the wood.

Earlier models with the ornate cap screw are worth more.

A furring plane is the same as a scrub or roughing plane (see 340) It has a thick single iron with a rounded edge . A roughing plane was needed for the first cut on un-milled wood i.e. wood with a rough surface left by saws or adzes. The roughing or scrub plane was used to even them out before a smoother finished the job. If you need one of these and donít want to spend a fortune, look out for a German wooden scrub plane . They sell for a fraction of the price and to the same job a lot better
