DID YOU KNOW…Currently the Planemaker Gallery features the work of over 100 contemporary plane makers from around the world. Not much else is really known about him, other than the planes bearing his mark are quite rare.
As this particular plane is marked "Badger" rather than "Badger & Gilpin" it's reasonable to assume that it was probably made some time between 1856 and 1867, when the business was located at 1 Stangate, Lambeth.

Veritas® Bullnose Plane The Veritas bullnose plane, perfect for cleaning up machine-cut joints, is one of the most useful hand joinery tools you can own. The plane’s adjustable toe lets you narrow the mouth for very fine shavings with minimum tear-out. Contact the seller- opens in a new window or tab and request a postage method to your location.

Each detailed move with a Stanley finishing tool rewards furniture builders, carpenters, glaziers, painters, industrial maintenance engineers and other professionals with the detail they demand. From larger commercial operations to individuals who just want to make planes for their own use. This is a shame because, in the case of this particular bullnose plane, his work is of quite high quality and is aesthetically pleasing to boot.
Before this time the business was located at 27 Stangate in Lambeth so it appears that the maker either found premises further up the road or that the road had been re-numberered at some time ( a fairly common practice in those days). Norris" set up shop in Lambeth at around the same time as Badger's business stopped appearing in the trade pages - give or take a few years. Designed for maximum versatility, it performs as either a bullnose or a chisel plane as required.
The ductile cast iron body and toe are accurately machined and ground so that the sole and sides are flat and square.

Goodman's "British Planemakers From 1700" as being in business from 1852 (as Badger & Galpin) to 1867.
The flowing shape of the curves coupled with the attractive chamfering along most of the top profile is an indication of the fine work done by this maker and makes it one of the nicer bullnose planes I've seen.
I personally find it fascinating, when such coincidences occur, as it would seem obvious to me that many of these makers would know, or at least have heard of, other makers in the field who were working at roughly the same time.
Simply loosen the brass toe locking knob to remove the toe piece for chisel plane configuration, and you can work right up to a blind corner. Shaped to fit comfortably in the hand, the low, broad lever cap meets the palm of your hand, and your forefinger rests in the toe pocket for maximum comfort and control. Set screws along the side enable you to accurately position the blade, and after sharpening replace it without lateral adjustment.
If you have a request concerning your item, PLEASE contact us directly through ebay BEFORE payment to avoid any confusion.
It's also interesting to note the use of two separate timbers used on this plane - mahogany for the infill and ebony for the wedge. It would likewise seem appropriate that anyone who had demonstrated the skills required for metal plane making - or indeed any plane making for that matter - would be "snapped up" as hot property for an established or growing business such as Spiers was at the time and Norris was threatening to be. It just doesn't sit with me that these businesses could be as influential as they were, and produce the amount of planes that they did, without either a work force of three or four men and at least some form of powered machinery - or both! It also ensures that when switching between configurations the toe will be repositioned with the same mouth opening previously set and ensures that you will never accidentally jam the nose against the blade edge.
I realize this is highly speculative of course, but it is perhaps worthy of further research.
