    Default Touchmark on a slick

    A friend just sent me a slick he needs re-handled (I have a lathe, he doesn't). It's stamped with a touchmark of three hearts. I feel like I ought to know what that mark is, but I just can't bring it to mind. Can someone here educate me about it?

    Three hearts seems to be vaguely familiar in the back of my mind, but I can’t place it.

    (Today I was given a slick, along with a collection of other tools,..... and the wooden tool chest of one of N.J.’s premier wooden boat builders. The tool chest still has some ‘baggage stickers’ on it from when he immigrated to the U.S. from Denmark. ..... more to come.)

    It came to me,..... sort of. Stanley used a single heart for its “sweetheart” line. I have at least one Stanley plane iron with a heart stamp.

    Yes, I remembered the Stanley "Sweetheart" line, but it has a different logo:


    The slick I had (I just returned it to its owner) had three hearts in a "V" pattern, no letters. So I don't *think* it's a Stanley Sweetheart.

    It's a pretty sweet slick, though. I wish I had one for myself.

    They are definitely nice tools to have. They can do along of work fast, as well as fine fine finish work nicely. Can never have to many.

    Well I guess I now know who to direct my jealousy toward tonight...

    Lovely collection.

    I love my old 3" slick, but I have only used it a few times, and now that my boat is built I doubt I will use it again anytime soon.
