ECE Plane Sharpening


The master-craftsman, Friedrich-Wilhelm Emmerich, founded E.C.E. in Remscheid, Germany in 1852.In that era, cabinetmakers usually made their own tools. The founder made such fine planes for himself, that his colleagues offered to buy his tools for their personal use. The plane making business started and grew. Soon, the founder and his son, Max Emmerich, had to leave their small workroom and build a plant to make planes.All owners were, and remain today, technicians who maintain the machinery in good mechanical condition. Most of the machines in the factory were specially designed and built by the Emmerichs. Today, the E.C.E. brand is well known worldwide by cabinetmakers for high quality planes and for other fine, hand wood working tools.
