Famport Tool Works NY – Possibly Consolidated Tool made Smoother
There is some speculation that Consolidated Tool may have bought parts from Sargent. There are some similarities and some big differences.
- The brass is 13/32″ which is typical for Sargent
- Knob and tote rods are 5/32″ unlike Sargents 3/16″
- Threads on this on the knob and tote rods are a standard 10-24
- Frog bolts are a standard 10-24
Note the blade lamination. The harden end is actually thinner than the low carbon steel.
It’s not a high quality hand plane. but it works.
If you have any information on Famport or what it might be I’d be interested to hear it.
I did find a Trade Mark registration renewal for Famport Hardware Corporation New York, NY filed Feb. 17, 1931 and the Famport Tool Co of Southington Conn in 1919, but that is all.
