James Stevens made planes from the 1820s to the 1860s in various shops in Boston according to AWP-IV. This plane cuts a curvy little ovolo and astragal profile about 5/8in wide by 1/2 in deep. It's double-boxed with the high wear area around the astragal completely boxed. The boxing is in good shape, with some wear. The blade also has some wear but could be used once ground and tuned. It'll take some work but it's usable and cuts a nice little molding.

Scarce PS&W 6in Ratchet Brace.
This is a cute little 6in ratchet brace made by Peck, Stowe, and Wilcox in Southington, CT. It's an early example with the Feb 11, 1879 patent date stamped lightly above the ratchet. It has nice cocobolo handles and the standard PS&W jaws that will grip just about any square shank bits. It's in excellent working order despite some light wear. 6in braces are hard to find and especially useful for boring small bits and turning small bitstock tools- screwdrivers, countersinks, etc.

Rare Left-Handed Ovolo Molding plane by Hills, Springfield MA.
This plane was made by Harvey Hills who worked in Springfield, MA between 1845-51.

Early Cove Molding Plane by GABRIEL, London.
This plane cuts a 1/2in wide cove. It's clearly marked by Christopher Gabriel, the famous and well -researched 18th and early 19th century London planemaker. It's probable that the plane was modified at one point with the escapement side planed back a bit to allow it to work along side other molding profiles. It remains a good, usable plane and has a clean blade.

Early 1in torus Bead Molding Plane.
This plane has a very faint maker's mark I can't come close to reading.

Excellent & Scarce Double-Iron Quirk Ogee &Bevel Molding Plane.
This plane was made by the Carlisle maker John Cockbain who worked from 1848-1862 according to Goodman's book. The plane is in excellent condition with light wear. It has the unusual feature of having two irons, one to cut the bevel, the other to cut the ogee. double iron planes are harder to make and thus more expensive, but there is a real benefit- the bevel portion of the profile is going to take much more wear than the ogee so having a separate iron just for the bevel makes it a much easier plane to maintain. Instead of shaping and sharpening the entire blade profile every time the user can just sharpen the bevel iron and leave the less used ogee iron in place. The plane cuts an extra-curvy version of this common casing molding. The profile measures 1 1/4in wide by 5/8in deep. It's a well-made example that could be put back to work.

Good, Usable toothing Plane.
This is likely a craftsman-made toothing plane with a 2in wide toothing iron bedded at 85 degrees. The plane is in good shape with signs of use. it holds the blade tight which is all that really matters with a toothing plane. The blade has a good 2in of tooth left and a medium pitch with about 30PPI. The top of the blade had some serious mushrooming that had to be cleaned up a bit. It's a solid worker toothing plane.

This is a good, usable 5/8in bead made by Stothert in Bath. The Stothert family worked as planemakers from 1784-1857.

Nice Pair of Stepped Flat Ovolo Planes by Crow, Canterbury.
These planes were made in the mid-late 1800s by the Canterbury planemaker brothers William and Edward Crow. The planes have always been toeghther and have the same owners' marks. One cuts a slightly smaller ovolo so I'm trying to to keep them together as a working pair. Both planes have seen use and have some light wear but no damage. The blades are in great shape and won't take too much work to have running. It's a nice usable pair of planes with very handy profiles in good user conditon
