Stanley SW Era no. 4c Smooth Plane.
this plane is a "type 15" made between 1931-32, the last of the SW era planes. It's been used and has a somewhat short blade but was well cared-for. It has clean sides and almost perfect japanning. The rosewood knob and tote are near-perfect. The tote is one of the rare two-tone examples made from a piece of rosewood with a dramatic contrast between the heartwood and sapwood. It's downright gorgeous. The plane has a deep scratch in the sole that might appear to be a crack in the photos but I'm 100% sure it's a scratch. The adjusters all work well. The blade is about half used-up but is clean and free of pitting. A very nice worker from Stanley's heyday.

Early SPEAR 16in Backsaw.
This saw predates Spear & Jackson. It was made in Sheffield by John Spear & Co. ca. 1809-1828 according to Simon Barley's book on Sheffield Sawmakers. The saw has a classic "London pattern" handle with the flat bottom horn. The plate is straight and the teeth quite sharp. I've tested it and it cuts well. It's filed 12PPI crosscut. The plate has even pinprick pitting throughout. The handle has some light damage to the top horn, clearly an old wound. It's a very early saw that is still completely usable.

Tiny, Early 1/8in Pigsticker Mortise Chisel.
This chisel is 1/8in wide and a bit over 10.5in long overall. It's clean and has a very nice beech handle. It's only one of a few in the 1/8in size. The design and patina tells me it's pretty early though it's unmarked so I can't tell for sure. Regardless there's nothing that will prevent it from being a great user.

Excellent Matched Trio of Hollow and Round Pairs.
These six planes were all made by Jonas Gale, a planemaker, carpenter, and entrepreneur who lived and worked in New York and Rhode Island throughout the mid-late 1800s. There is an extensive write-up on his history in AWP-V which gives us some great history of these planes. The planes are three matched pairs which have always been together based on their matching condition and patina. The sizes are 4 (7/16in), 6 (9/16in) and 8 (3/4in). These are all smaller and very desirable sizes. All of the planes are in excellent condition with only light wear. The mouths are all still very tight. The blades are long and free of pitting. You can take for granted that, like any vintage molding plane, they need a quick grind and hone to get them in working condition. Other than that there isn't much tuning required to get these running. They are some of the very few matched pairs I've had in these sizes for a very long time and the first matched trio in a longer time than that. A great working set.

Early, Curvy Ogee Molding Plane.
This plane is unmarked but has a decidedly early appearance to it. It has broad, flat chamfers along the handhold. There is a deep cove on the step. It's well-used which means someone really liked it. It is a bit "vernacular" in design and construction but is completely usable. The blade is long and clean, the body perfectly straight. It cuts a curvy 7/8in wide by 5/8in deep ogee with a very deep beginning curve you don't see often.

Early GABRIEL 1/2in Square Ovolo Molding Plane.
This plane was made by Christopher Gabriel who worked in London ca. 1770-96. Gabriel is most well known for making the planes found in the famous Seaton chest. This particular plane is in exceptional condition considering its age. It has the broad, flat chamfers that Goodman relates as being used on the earliest planes Gabriel made. This plane has been cleaned up a bit and apparently tuned as well. It cuts a 1/2in tall by 1/2in wide ogee profile. It's a usable plane though the cleaning ruins its collectors value. Still, it's a nice little profile and a 200+ year old plane

It has a very faint maker's mark I can't read. Based on the design I believe it's an early 19th century British plane. It'll make a nice user and has a really nice profile

Early, Unusually Steep Small Ogee Molding Plane.
This plane was made by John Manners in Glasgow in the late 18th century or first couple of decades of the 19th century. It cut a small 3/8in by 3/8in ogee profile. It has a very high middle pitch blade which is a rarity. It also has an unusually long fence and depth stop, much like a sash plane, but the profile doesn't match any sash plane I've seen, nor have I seen one at middle pitch. The blade is long and clean, completely free of pitting. It's a very unusual plane in clean, usable condition.

Unusual 22in Turning Saw.
This is clearly a user-made saw made from a lightweight wood that might be chestnut. The arms pass through mortises in the stretchers rather than the typical mortise and tenon construction. the blade is fairly early looking and has a most unusual connecting mechanism that the photos will do a better job describing than I can with words.

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.
