Unique and hard to find Patented Union No. 8 Jointer plane
Not sanctioned by Union Manufacturing Company. As of the time of this listing it is assumed this is one of a kind, there is no record of another surfacing. The primary objective of this invention is to provide a novel means for lifting the blade or iron off the work piece to prevent edge damage. As with many Rare patented tools this idea wasn't a huge breakthrough and was virtually unmarketable with any major success. It's likely this plane was the sample used to obtain the patent and to pitch the idea to companies with no avail. Online records indicate this patent was never produced, just patented. Well here it is! It was produced!
