Museum - Manufacturers & Merchants Robert Varville & Sons, Joiners Tool Manufacturers
Bot. of Rob't Varville & Sons, Joiners Tool Manufacturers. 17 Bridge Street, York (Great Britain). September 29, 1900.
Once in awhile I come across something from other than a US maker. In this case, it has special meaning as one of the first wood planes for my 'collection' was a Varvill Sons York beech smoother. I have no idea where it is now.
An interesting list of goods from one of the premier tool makers and hardware merchants of Great Britain. Looks as if someone was plannng on building something... and breaking a lot of hammer shafts. 12 hammer shafts?
