Norris Planes: A Value Guide

Norris A5 Smoothing Plane Box Label

I have included a rough guide to the value of Norris planes below. While it is always difficult to provide a value guide that can be agreed upon by everybody, I have endeavored to offer one here nonetheless — in part to cut down on the many requests for valuations that I have had over the years.

Please remember that it is only a rough guide and that there are so many variables to consider, such as overall condition, rarity, completeness and demand.

STOP PRESS: Until I've sorted this page out properly with my own findings I've decided that, in the interim, I will include the valuations from British dealer Tony Murland Antiques. Murlands has been selling antique woodworking tools for decades and has, arguably, sold more Norris planes than just about anyone else out there; so it's a great starting point for this particular value guide.
