Union Plane Co. no. 3 Small Smooth Plane.
This plane has exceptional rosewood on it and a near-perfect tote that's extra-curvy. The blade is nice and long and clean without any pitting. It's the typical extra-thick Union style blade. The side of the plane is marked "second" likely due to the casting void in the sole as shown in the photos. The sides also have either small voids or some old pitting, but the overall condition of the plane makes pitting unlikely. Still a good worker, if flawed.

Ohio no. O3C Small Smooth Plane.
This is Ohio's version of the Stanley 3C smoother. It has a good clean body and exceptional rosewood knob and tote. Ohio mostly used rosewood-painted hardwood but these appear to be actual rosewood. The plane has Ohio's standard thick, tapered iron which was intended to reduce chatter in use. It's about the thickness of a standard wooden bench plane blade and really does hold up well to chatter in difficult woods. The only flay really is a small chip in the back of the mouth opening as shown in the photos. Still a solid worker.

Ash bits all usable, if a bit dirty. The no. 4 bit is missing. Also included is a custom-made fluting bit of the sort I've never seen before. It cuts a 1in wide flute. Unlike many modified plow bits I've found over the years, this one is obviously custom-made for the task. It's a great plane coupled with a nice matched set of bits.

Big 7/8in British Side Bead molding Plane.
This plane has had many owners over the years, each of whom fought with name stamp and mallet to claim ownership over this tool. it's been well used but remains in good working condition. The boxing is straight and the blade very clean. The maker's mark was long ago stamped over in the Fracar of the Upper Toe ca. 1900-1902. The resultant mess left us with no clear winner, only an illegible maker's mark. A good, usable plane for larger house and architectural moldings. Add your mark to it, if you can find room.

MaydoleCarpenters hammer.
This is a medium sized carpenter's claw hammer made by Maydole, the creator of the adze-eye hammer. . It has long sweeping claws that differentiate it from a ripping or framing hammer.

It's a small imperfection and Maydole hammers are in such demand (and a favorite of mine) I'll list it for sale despite the damage. This size and shape make it a good hammer for use at the bench. An ideal worker.

Interesting, Early Wedge-Arm Plow/Rabbet Plane.
This plane has no maker's mark that I can see, just "RLONG" at the toe which I think is an owner's mark. It's made of cherry I believe, but I could be wrong. it's surely not beech. It has a lot profile and keyed wedges to hold the arms. It holds a 3/4in wide straight rabbeting blade. It could be a dedicated plow, an adjustable rabbet plane, or even a sash fillister. It's a mystery. It's surely a well made plane and looks like many user-made 18th century style New England plow planes I've seen.

Scarce Sandusky Horned Bench Plane.
This plane is 8in long with a 1 3/4in wide double iron. It was made by Sandusky. You won't find many American-made horned smooth planes like this one. I think it'll make a great worker as a scrub plane or a small smoother.

Very Early American Crown Molding Plane.
This plane is a classic example of a late 18th or early 19th century crown molder. it's made of beech and has an offset tote with a fishtail finial. There is a helper handle to assist the user in pushing the massive blade through the stock. It holds a 3 1/8in wide tapered iron that is in amazingly good conditon considering its age. The plane is marked "GD" at the toe, a mark I don't see in AWP-IV which does not surprise me. It's in very good conditon overall which, considering its age, is quite surprising. It'll make a great addition to a collection of early planes and crown molders.

An excellent example in a highly desirable small size.

The Birmingham Plane Company operated in what is now Derby, CT. This block plane is the largest of the three sizes they made measuring 7in long and holding a 1 3/4in wide iron. This model was offered with and without a blade adjuster- this example does not have it, nor is the blade prepared to accept an adjuster. It's in fair condition overall and could definitely be used. The lever cap has a pronounced hump where the user's palm rests. As you can imagine these planes are frequently found with cracked caps. This one is intact. the blade is clean and crisp. The sides of the plane flare out a bit and there are small cast nubs to hold which make for a more comfortable and secure grip than other block planes. An interesting plane in solid user condition
