A Plated Brace has a solid wood frame that is reinforced with thin brass plates. On high-end factory-made tools the stock is made of beechwood, the plates are both inlaid and screwed and the neck is turned in rosewood or brass.
We have an extremely limited quantity of the English Plated Brace. Each is a strikingly handsome tool (our scout-buyer in London will only send us the finest examples – even if it’s just 1 or 2). Each brace is about 13” long and comes with a 5” single square-tapered shank Centre Bit held with a button operated latch. Overall length is about 18”.
Every tool in our stock is unique. Though we will not be able to pick and choose a particular model, you can be confident each is a fine and authentic Antique Plated Brace from the UK that has been carefully selected for its beauty, quality and charm.
