Tyzack And Son 1908 Catalog


Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The scans below are from the Samuel Tyzack & Son catalog of 1908. Samuel Tyzack was in business from 1861 to 1867 at 8 Old St. before moving to 347 Old St. & 153 Shoreditch from 1872 and later 343 & 345 Old St. in 1892. In 1905 the firm became Samuel Tyzack & Son. According to W.L. Goodman, Tyzacks published a sizable hardback general tool catalog during the early decades of the 20th century, of which hand planes featured prominently.

Like so many catalogs of the day there is a good choice of the hand planes available, from wooden bench planes, moulding planes, hollows and rounds, rabbet planes and plows to the cast iron planes in many variations made by Stanley Rule And Level. Even the best quality British iron and infill planes are represented, with hand planes by both Norris and Preston. Interestingly there's also the "Ulmer Reform Plane" on page 20, featuring an adjustable mouth and with the body made of selected apple wood and a sole made from "Goat's Wood". While one can only speculate on just what "Goat's Wood" might actually be, it should be noted that the modern-day Ulmia plane now has a body made from red beech and a sole from either white beech, hornbeam or lignum vitae.

The introduction to the catalog is reproduced below:
