Contemporary design combining precision engineering with traditional hand craft.

A28 Chariot Plane.

A28 Chariot Plane. Inspired by the Norris A28 Chariot with all my improvements.

This is about as good as they get - this plane is dovetailed not cast, precision made throughout. It is unique as you will not find this precision and detail on any other chariot plane.

Price is £5,200 + vat (if applicable) + delivery.

I have seen an original Norris A28 plane auctioned at £13,500, and the quality was no where near my standard. This is a plane to be purchased for posterity. It is the last Chariot I will make.

No.983 and No.98 Planes.


No.983 Planes.

Though I announced my retirement some time ago I still seem to be beavering around finishing off items that have been in the cupboards for some time.

I had been hoping to spend more time on other projects, including a couple of planes that I had always wanted to make.

These are not production items and you will have to look out for them on the website/blog as I progress.

I plan to keep my website open for archival purposes, also to sell off the remaining planes. For ease of my use I will also list these on my blog page http://www.holteyplanes.com/blog/ with prices.

At the moment I have 2 x No. 983 planes for sale at £6,200 (+ VAT if applicable).

No.983 Planes.

I am currently finishing some of my fabled No 98 stainless steel smoother planes, which were the first of its type. This design spawned similar planes from both amateurs and some large manufacturers.

The price is £5,650 (+ vat if applicable)

Please remember that I am no longer making batches of planes only finishing off from stock parts, so when they are gone they are gone.
