In the earlier years this Marples sliding bevel design was produced in an Ebony version also.

This bevel was given good William Marples branding in the form of a trade label on the stock as well a William Marples inscription on the blade.

The trade label said 'W Marples & Sons, Sheffield, Eng, Shamrock Brand'.

"Just stumbled across your website and an absolute treasure trove of information. I was recently given an old Stanley 110 block plane and wanted to know more about it. Your website told me everything I needed to know.

But there is so much more to read. I forsee me spending a lot of time just reading page after page. I can appreciate how much time this will have taken to put together.

I just wanted to let you know that your hard work is appreciated."
