Spill Plane - Woodworking
Spill Plane - Woodworking
Before matches became widely available in the 1860s, long, coiled wood shavings known as spills were used to transfer a flame from one location to another, such as from a fireplace to a candle, lantern or stove. Typically made using a special inverted plane, spills burn more slowly and consistently than paper, and also double as a convenient tinder material. We based the design of our spill plane on an 1850s Edward Preston spill plane in our collection.

You simply push a piece of straight-grained softwood 5/8" to 3/4" wide over the blade, guiding it along a channel in the sole, to produce a long, tightly curled shaving. A 1/2" tall, 2-1/2" wide fence projects from the base to register against the edge of a bench, table or hearth; a screw-hole in the fence also allows it to be fastened to a block of wood and clamped in a vise.

Made from ductile cast iron with an O1 tool steel blade, the plane measures 8" long overall and weighs 1 lb 9 oz. An excellent gift for those with fireplaces or woodstoves, it is useful for starting fires as well as rekindling old traditions.

Made in Canada.

The Replacement Blade is temporarily unavailable. We expect to receive stock by late February 2015.
