That's for the one-off ebony and ivory Sandusky.
I don't have a copy to hand, so I can't check - but doesn't Sandor
Nagyszalanczy's "Art of Fine Tools" talk about an even rarer version -
an all ivory version, lost or stolen a few years ago, and built in
replica quite recently ?
The boxwood version of this plane is clearly collectable, but not in
that price range. Any idea what one of those runs to ?
Hi Andy -
Actually - we have an ebony and ivory Sandusky, though not as much ivory as
on the exhibition model....our has only ivory tips...
Mind you, as far as I know, it's the only one of it's kind too..... :)
If you look at our cover from 1984/85 (link below) you can the reproduction
of it. The original surfaced after we published the cover, and we bought it
from a well known woodworking author.
I beleive the "original all-ivory version" you refer to was photographed for
our 1982/83 cover (also at the link below) after we had asked them to look
for it (they didn't know they had it). Not a Sandusky though. I also seem to
remember that the arms had been docked so it would fit in a display case....
Thanks for sucking up another half hour of my time. Well, at least it
didn't cost me money this time (the usual outcome with LV).
More seriously, pretty interesting, especially the ones with a little
story of what is in it, etc. A 1600's chisel? Very cool.
Now get that woodworking museum open in Ottawa!! I want see some of that

Yep. It as made by Moseley and Sons, later owned by
Record, and disappeared from where ever they kept it.
Been missing for a number of years.
