NOTES: * The No. 14GS, not noted as such in the Norris 1908 price list, is actually marked as the Norris No. 16. There was also a plain gunmetal model, without a steel face, which was sold as the Norris No. 15. Design-wise, both of these handplanes were exactly the same as the No. 14GS, and both sold with gunmetal levercaps and ebony infill.

Later models had a noticeable upward sweep to the metal side cheeks. This plane had been dropped from production by the 1928 catalogue.
