I have an idea.
Sharpen it, use it, love it, clean it.
That's four ideas. any one will do.
But what sort of idea were you after?

googling reveals
W THACKERAY

"Ken Robert's in his English Woodworking Tools book has a single line indicating that this company got in the metal plane business after 1860.
Goodman (British Planemakers) has the following:
Thackeray, John William LEEDS Wesley Rd, Armley <1893> 67 Old Row Armley 1907 - 1912 Ivy Works, 51 Old Row, Armley <1930 Metal plane maker
(Goodman uses brackets to indicate that he was probably in business for more time in the direction of the bracket, but he could not pin the dates down.)"
