Taber Plane Company–New Bedford Ma.

Once in a while, it takes some time to stumble onto the information to tie it together. What is it you say? Well sometimes it depend.

A few month ago I bought this plane because it was cheap, and it just looked cool.


After a little TLC, it was brought back to life


It took some time to stumble onto information that led what I had. It seems this was manufactured by the Taber Plane Co. in New Bedford Ma. in the late 1800’s. Information on the company is still being sought and seems a little scarce.

Can have found a few that sold in the past, prices ranging from $57 – $390.
