I am not sure how anyone could confirm this, and of course sadly not sure if there are any pre war employees still out there to confirm it either. And to add to that confusion, it really has no writing on it other than the Sandusky marking on the blade. There is of course a story. And an obscure story so one could say, who in the hell would make up a story like that? So, I am inclined to believe it. But then again?
So todays big question is? Does anyone have any more info on such an item? Any stories, any photos of tools from the pre war era? And of course if you are a gambling man. HERE IT IS ON EBAY.
And then again, one could even say. Would it be worth anymore even if it is proven? maybe, just maybe the story is the most fun part of the entire thing.
HERE IS THE DESCRIPTION FROM THE SELLER FELLER ON EBAY
Antique 14″ hand made wooden plane from a craftsman at Chris craft until the war. Shipped with USPS Priority Mail. This auction features a beautiful vintage wooden hand made plane with a back story. I bought this plane 2 yrs ago from and and older gentlemen who told me they were his father or grandfather who was a craftsman at Chris craft boats until he served his country in the 40s. . I did email Chris craft and offered the plane to I was going to give them away. They responded asked for photos and I sent them and that Is the end of story. I believe I may have makers name in the email if I find ill added . But you look at the pictures and ask questions. Unsure what species of wood the plane is made from. Planes solid and functional. The knob is 2 pieces and the top spins again look at the pictures as they are part of the description and ask questions if you need before you bid. This is a no reserve auction so good luck bidders
