Description:
The Union Tool Company of New Britain, Connecticut introduced a series of bead metallic bead planes using the No. 44 designation in 1904. Writing in Patented Trasitional & Metallic Planes in America, author Roger Smith speculates that the design may have been appropriated from this, the patented bead plane of George Gocher, of Johnstown, Pennsylvania, following the expiration of the patent. Examples of the Union No. 44 are extremely rare, but are certainly outdone in rarity by the original Gocher patent. The patent date is cast into the body of this plane and the reverse side has a uniform crosshatch checkering pattern. (Courtesy and (C) Martin J. Donnelly, www.mjdtools.com)
