Massive 28in Wooden Jointer Plane.
This is a good, usable jointer plane with a superb blade. The plane has an over-stamped mark I can't read. It has an excellent closed tote free of damage and a strike button at the toe made of an exotic hardwood. The blade is 2 1/2in wide made by Humphreysville Mfg Co. in the early-mid 19th century. An interesting bit of trivia- Humphreysville, CT was later renamed Seymour and was also the home of Douglas and later James Swan. The plane is generally clean and free of damage. It was used and the mouth area was already patched once- it's a good job and will make it easier should you choose to patch it again in the future. There are some checks in the sole but it's straight and flat. It's a good usable jointer plane. It weighs in at about 9lbs overall and will not fit in a flat rate box so shipping it will be costly if you live west of the Mississippi or in the south- feel free to email me for a shipping quote.

Massive H. Chapin 28in Wooden Jointer Plane.
This razee jointer plane was made by H. Chapin & Co at the Union Factory outside of Hartford, CT. The plane is in good, usable condition. IT's not perfect but it's in good shape where it counts. It holds a 2 5/8in wide tapered double iron made by W. Butcher in Sheffield. The blade is in good shape. It's got a lot of length left and is incredibly thick. There is a definite hollow in the back near the edge which I think is actually an advantage as it makes it easier to hone, very similar to a Japanese chisel. The closed tote is also in excellent condition. The wedge has a chip and the sole has a small check from age. The sole was recently flattened. It's a razee design which reduces the weight a bit but it's still nearly 10 pounds. It won't fit in a flat rate box so shipping it west of the Mississippi is going to be expensive. I'd be happy to give you an exact shipping quote if you'd like. A solid worker in a hard to find size

Original Wooden Box for CE Jennings Chisels (No chisels).
I find weird stuff hidden in the corners of the basement. This is one of them. It's a original hinged box for C.E. Jennings chisels. It has a near-perfect label on the inside. It measures roughly 16x5x4. The corners are finger jointed and still tight. The hinges and hasps are in good condition. It would be good for storing chisels in.

The beech handle is complete and very good with some light wear. It's an unusual size to find and a very desirable panel rip saw- a fine worker that's ready to go out of the box.

Excellent 3/4in Side Bead Molding Plane.
This is an exceptionally clean and crisp plane with a perfect iron and very little use. The boxing is dead straight. It was made for the hardware dealer Field and Hardie which operated in Philadelphia ca. 1850. AWP-V states that their planes were made by Chapin and Sandusky. I'm sure this isn't a Sandusky. It would make sense that it was made by Chapin. Regardless it'll make a fine worker for cutting larger casing and house moldings.

Roberts: Tools for the Trades and Crafts.
This is a reprint, with much commentary by the author, of an 18th century pattern book published originally by R. Timmons & Sons. The pages within contain hundreds of standard patterns for hand tools of all trades, but especially woodworking tools. From these patterns we can see that many of the forms of the tools did not change for several centuries, in fact, the same plates that appeared in the 18th century editions of these books were still used well into the late 19th century. The artistry is of an exceptional quality, clearly showing the scale and design of each tool. This, combined with Roberts' excellent commentary, makes it an excellent reference book. It is in excellent condition, printed in 1976, and has only light wear to the dustjacket.

Probably not the best choice for difficult wood with the mouth this big but the blade is clean and the plane is pretty clean overall.

Interesting, Early Socket Gouge.
This gouge was made by Horton & Arnold, am edge tool manufacturer working in New York from 1853-1865 according to the EAIA DAT. The gouge is 1 1/2in wide, incannell, and a massive 17in long. The socket is slightly cranked like a slick's would be, which elevates the handle, and the user's hand, above the work. It has the look of a hand-forged edge tool to me- definitely mass-produced. The back is amazingly clean and free of pitting. The handle may not be original but fits well and has little wear at the receiving end. It's an interesting, early American edge tool that looks completely usable to me.
