Buck Brothers Whatsit.
I've never seen one of these before, and have no idea what it is. At first glance it appears to bea long socket chisel but the end flares out to a head with a double bevel with a blunted end. It has a clear Buck mark on the blade. The socket and handle look like the usual type you'd find on a Buck chisel but the inside of the socket has a rib cast into it and the handle has a groove carved to accept the rib. My guess is that it was intended to keep the handle from twisting off so perhaps this is a screwdriver which goes along with the double-bevel blunted business end. .No tool like this appears in any of the Buck catalogs I have. Whatever it is, you won't find another!

These two are dark with patina but have good cutting lips and lead screws and appear perfectly usable. Cooks original patent was granted June 17, 1851. His auger bits featured sweeping, rounded cutting lips that curl away from the lead screw. This design offered several advantages over other style auger bits with forward-facing lips. First and foremost, this design allows the bits to enter the work at almost any angle without leading lips to catch on the wood. Second, this design allows them to bore ver

Exceptional Set of Thirteen Long Irwin Auger Bits plus one.
Irwin made bits in all shapes and sizes. Occasionally I'll find a longer bit but they are scarce and most are electrician's bits meant for fast, rough boring. This set is something truly rare- it is a set of thirteen extra-long Irwin auger bits.

This pattern is the best general-purpose bit available, capable of boring smooth holes in all sorts of wood from kiln-dried cabinet woods, to wet green wood, to super hard woods like hard maple and exotics. These bits are all 12 1/2in long, with the exception of the No. 10 and 9 which are "only" 11 1/2in inches long. To put into perspective how long these bits are, I photographed one next to a standard bit and included it in the list of pictures. I'm not sure what the intended purpose of these bits was but they were clearly not used hard- they were definitely used, and most have been resharpened, but th

Exceptional PEXTO Samson 8in Brace.
The PEXTO Samson is my favorite brace ever made- It's built like a tank just like the NOrth Brothers Yankee and Millers Fall Lion. It has a ball bearing head and handle and a heavy duty chuck with the patented free-spinning knurled collar hat allows you to tighten the jaws without rotating the bit or frame. The opening for the bit is elongated and slightly star-shaped to allow it to hold large bits. The brace is built well, but it's also quite striking in appearance. The frame, chuck, the small bits that hold the handle in place, and the quill are all bright with nickel plating. The handle and pad are made of cocobolo. when you find one in mint condition it's a truly beautiful tool. This one is in about as nice condition as I've ever found one. The nickel is bright and nearly perfect. The cocobolo handle and head are also nearly perfect though the color is an almost completely even dark brown/black without much contrast. The ratchet works perfectly. The head is perfectly tight with no

Short 3/4in Cooks Patent Auger Bit.
Cook's Patent bits are fascinating, and work incredibly well, but are unfortunately very rare. Unlike standard auger bits, Cook's bits have spurs that sweep backward and curve away from the lead screw. This allows them to bore at extreme angles regular bits cannot work at. They also bore very well in end grain with no forward-facing spurs to get in the way. This particular bit is an unusual 6 1/2in long bit in excellent condition. It bores a 3/4in hole perhaps useful in chairmaking. The bit is in excellent condition and is still sharp with a good lead screw. These are fun bits to use, just really hard to find.

Rare and Excellent Millers Falls No. 87 Breast Drill.
If I had to pick a favorite manufactured old tool, it would probably be the Millers Falls No. 97 and its much less common cousin the 87. Both share the same engineering and design but the 87 has a two-jaw chuck. These are the most over-engineered, gizmo-laden boring tools ever created. They are truly an engineering marvel. The drill has five drive modes, selected by turning an adjuster between the gears. Plain mode is simple- moving the chuck as you'd expect clockwise and counter-clockwise as you turn the crank. It also features a Left-Hand and Right-Hand ratchet, again fairly straightforward . The real beauty is in the "continuous motion" modes, described as Left Hand Onward and Right hand Onward. In these modes the chuck moves in one direction regardless of what direction the handle is turned.- really useful when you are drilling in a corner or other restricted area.To top it all off, the drill speed in any of these modes can be changed from fast to slow (about 1:1 to 1:3) by the sim

Regardless of the model number, it's an excellent working brace, and quite a pretty tool. It retains almost all of its original, shiny nickel plating. The chuck works perfectly and the ratchet is smooth in both directions. The handle and pad move freely and have gorgeous rosewood. It's a nice small size brace in ready to work condition.

Vintage Belgian Coticule Sharpening Stone or Razor Hone.
The Belgian Coticule is a legendary sharpening stone that comes from one area of the Ardennes region in Belgium. They are rare stones and highly sought after by straight razor enthusiasts and woodworkers who want to put the finest edge on a tool. This is a water stone, not an oil stone. It shows no signs that it was ever used with oil. The ston measures 7x1 3/4in x 3/4in. This is a natural combination of yellow and blue coticule. This is not a yellow coticule glued to slate like many of the less expensive hones. The blue layer can supposedly be used as a coarser grit stone, making this a natural combination stone, however it's the yellow coticule that's the big draw here. This stone has been used a bit and is slightly dished. I don't think it's hollowed buy more than 1/16th of an inch. It's a great opportunity to acquire a rare sharpening stone at a fraction of the price you will find them for on eBay or through the specialty websites.

Goodell Pratt No. 2 Automatic Screwdriver.
This is a fairly scarce tool made by Goodell Pratt sometime prior to 1931 when they were acquired by Millers Falls. This tool is designed to drive screws quickly and efficiently. The spiral shaft allows the user to quickly drive screws. The tool can also be used as a fixed screwdriver when the going gets tough. Caution: Screwdriver geekery ahead: G-P made three models of this screwdriver- the no. 1, 2, and 3. The differences are minor- each is slightly longer than the other but, more importantly, the spiral shafts are slanted differently. The No. 1 is the least acutely slanted and thus runs the slowest, the No. 2 is a medium (30 degree) slant, and the No. 3 is the most aggressive at 20 degrees, intended for the roughest work. Only Goodell Pratt would think to offer such options. This one is in excellent working order. The spiral shaft extends and retracts easily and the chuck clamps down tight. It's a fun, efficient tool to use.

Pikes Patent Saw Jointer.
This is an interesting saw jointer patented by E.B. Pike on Oct 24, 1893. It has no manufacturer name, just the patent date so we don't know who made them.

Another novel feature is the jointer's ability to use any sort of file- rectangular, square, or three-corner. This is less of an issue today with good flat file being so common, but one can imagine that this could have been a benefit in earlier times. It's an interesting set in good condition- there is some missing japanning but all fo the screws are free and the spring loaded fence works easily.

Machinist Height Gauge.
I don't usually look for height gauges but this one was so well made and thought-out I had to go for it.

The base has two knurled thumbscrews that allow the user to stabilize the base. It also has an intricate micro-adjuster that allows minute adjustment of the arm. There are even soft brass shoes under the thumbscrews to prevent it from marring the beam. It's a 2 beautifully made tool that works very well.

The base is nicely turned and the top of the beam has a nice acorn styl finial. The base is stamped with the maker's name: W.J. BUGG. and the date 1895. . It's a well-made tool that works very well. It's in excellent condition with an honest patina of age on it, but no rust.

The planes have matching maker's and owners' marks. The larger is 3/4in the smaller 1/2in. Both are in excellent condition with no flaws- perfect bodies and boxing, and excellent blades with clean, crisp backs showing no pitting. They are both in good working order and could be put to use making larger moldings.

This plane is in excellent working condition overall. It cuts a nice small 3/16in side bead, a very desirable size for small to medium size work. The blade is bedded at middle pitch- 55 degrees. It's long and clean and ground perfectly. The back is slightly dark but has no pitting at all. The boxing is near perfect. The body is crisp and clean. The escapement side of the plane body has a removable slip that would allow the plane to either sink a deeper bead or allow the bead to be cut right next to another molding element. A fantastic user.

Crisp Matched Pair of Tongue and Groove Planes by John Miller .
Miller worked in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne int he mid-19th century. This stamp bears the 73 Clayton St. mark which Goodman dates to 1855-75. This pair of planes was designed to work 7/8in stock but will accommodate stock up to 1in easily, and perhaps even 5/4in. The planes are in crisp, clean condition with excellent blades. Both planes have sharp, clean blades. These planes are exceptional for two things: first, they have very deep fences, much deeper than normal T&G planes. This will make them much easier to keep registered on the work. Second, the tongue plane has a circular escapement int hei middle of the plane. This is a rare design and one I've only seen on planes made by Varvill prior to this one. It does seem to make it easier to clear the large chips this plane produces. They are an excellent working pair of planes ready to be put to use on larger work.

Excellent 3/4in Side Bead Molding PLane.
This plane has no fewer than four owners' marks, but no maker's mark that I can make out. I'd wager almost anything it's British- it has the look and the middle-pitch blade that is typical of a British plane. The plane is in excellent working order with a very clean body, perfect boxing, and a very sharp, very clean blade. It's about as good as they come if you are looking for a larger side bead to use.

Samuel Cook worked as a planemaker from 1825-45. This example of his work has surved in exceptional condition. The body is perfectly clean with crisp, sharp edges. The blade is sharp and ground perfectly to match the sole. As found the iron was set and ready to work. I think just a very light honing will have this plane up and running.

It's a fantastic user molding plane, about as good as they come.

The planes are exceptionally easy to use with large, flat fences for easy registration against the board edge, and a wide depth stop. The planes both have very good blades bedded at York pitch, and tight mouths. A nice, usable pair of molding planes.

This is a good,working 3/8ni side bead by Cox and Luckman of Birmingham. It has a god, clean body with no chips or cracks. The blade is very clean without a speck of pitting and reasonably sharp. The boxing has a seam towards the heel- I don't think it's a crack, rather it's where the boxing was put together. The boxing is still straight and true.

Interesting Small Steep Ogee by Deeley of London.
This plane is stamped DEELEY at the toe, made by either William or Thomas Deeley, both of whom worked in London between 1826-89. This plane cuts a really nice small, steep ogee. The interesting thing is that the plane is not spring- it has a small fence that keeps the plane held vertically and the spring lines are also completely vertical. It's the first plane I've seen in this configuration. The plane is in very god condition overall- it has a nice patina and the usual dings and scratches. The blade is in good condition with minor pitting and a fairly sharp bevel.

1/2in Square Ovolo by Gardiner of Bristol.
This plane cuts a 1/2in wide by 1/2in deep ovolo, a nice useful profile. The plane is in good shape with no damage, just the normal dings and scratches you'd expect from a vintage plane. The blade is bedded at 55 degrees- cabinet pitch. The blade is sharp and clean, but will require some work to make it match the profile. A nice plane that is worth the small amount of time to fix the blade.

Interesting Standing Fillsiter by JL Denison, Saybrook, CT.
This is an interesting little plane- it does one thing: it cuts a 1/2in wide rabbet. It has a fixed fence but no depth stop. The partnership of John and Lester Denison worked in Saybrook, CT from 1832-40 according to AWP-IV. The really interesting thing about this plane is that the toe and heel are stamped "Pat Applied For". To me it looks like any other molding plane, granted it's a scarce profile. The plane is in very good condition overall- nice and clean with a sharp blade showing no pitting. It would make a good user and a fun research project.

Very Early, Extra-Curvy Quirk Ovolo and Astragal by John Moseley.
This plane bears the MOSELEY, 12 NEW ST mark on the toe, a mark that dates to 1809-18 according to Goodman. It's one of Moseley's earliest marks. The plane cuts a medium sized and steep quirk ovolo and astragal profile. It's double boxed at the quirk and transition between astragal and ovolo. The boxing is nearly perfect- a small chip at the heel the only flaw. The blade is bedded at 55 degrees- cabinet pitch. It is still quite clean- surprising considering its age, with only minimal pitting and still sharp bevel. The mouth is still very tight- evidence that it wasn't used much. It's a very complex, curvy profile on a very early plane. It would be a nice addition to a collection or to put to use.

Very Early 3/8in Ogee by W. Lampard.
Lampard's mark doesn't appear in Goodman's book (or AWP-IV but I highly doubt it's American) though I have anecdotal evidence that it dates to ca. 1760 based on the former owner's research. The plane has all of the hallmarks of an 18th century plane- the longer length- right around 10in long, and the broad, flat chamfers. The body has a nice patina and no damage. The blade is very clean and still quite sharp. It is marked (I believe) Robert Moore. The plane is still usable and would make a great addition to a collection or working kit.

Rare Screw-Arm Moving Fillister by Ohio.
This is an Ohio Tool Co. No. 57 screw-arm moving fillister. This is a scarce plane to find today- they were incredibly expensive to buy when they were made. This plane has boxwood screw arms, nuts, and washers. The arms are in excellent shape with only one or two tiny chips in the threads. The washers and nuts spin freely with no binding at all. The depth stop has a steel sole and is regulated with a brass thumbscrew. The blade is full-length and in excellent shape with a sharp, freshly honed beve. This plane is ready to use as a moving fillister. Which leads me to the interesting part- this plane was designed as a dual-purpose sash and moving fillister. It originally had nickers on both sides, a feature that was not advertised in any of the Ohio literature I've found. Unfortunately, the left hand cheek of the plane has blown out and the nicker lost, leaving it a meere curiosity rather than a usable feature. Still, the plane will function perfectly as a moving fillister and will happil

This plane was made by James Moseley between 1817-37 or his wife Harriet who apparently continued the business after James' death for several years from 1839-42. This is according to Goodman's book on British planes. This particular plane is a small 1/2in skew rabbet. It has a good straight body with no twist. The circular escapement is especially well done ad the blade is bedded at 55 degrees. The blade has some pitting but it could be fixed and should sharpen up without a lot of effort. It's a nice small plane to put back to use

A fantastic plane by a very desirable maker ready to put to work or add to a collection.

Interessting Adjustable Tongue Plane by Mathieson..
This is an interesting plane- the first I've seen in this pattern. The plane has a tonguing cutter that leaves a 1/4in wide tongue. It has a fence to center the tongue anywhere from 3/8 to 5/8in away from an edge and a depth stop to limit the depth of the tongue from zero all the way to 7/8in deep. It's a center escapement plane with a big, thick iron by the Moulson Brothers. I have some pairs of adjustable tongue and groove planes and this plane looks nothing like them at all. Additionally, it has the ability to cut a very deep tongue which would be impractical for a T&G joint. The plane was found with a kit of sash maker's tools so it may have something to do with sash work. I looked through my Mathieson catalogs and did not se it listed, though I don't have any that date back to the time this plane was made. This plane has Mathieson's earliest mark- only "MATHIESON" with no mention of a son or date. This should date it to ca. 1814-53 or so, according to Goodman. The plane is in exce

Interesting User-Made Spill Plane.
Spill planes were used to cut tight spiral shaped wood shavings. The shavings were used to transfer flame from fire to candle, candle to pipe, etc. Almost all spill planes are user-made and take various forms from bench mounted planes where the wood was moved over the plane to more typical molding plane shapes like this one. The interesting thing about this plane is the piece of wood that was used. It's made of quartered beech and has the typical broad, flat chamfers of an early plane. The plane is very well-made overall. The piece of wood that forms the body had a huge burled knot toward the heel of the plane and a large void with all sorts of inclusions. Why the maker chose this piece of wood is beyond me, but it apparently worked fine based on the signs of use it shows. An interesting and usable spill plane

Exception Matchet Triplet of Double-Iron Sash Molding Planes by Neson, London.
That's a mouthful! I've had these planes in my collection for a while- I have a thing for double-iron molding planes and these are about the best you will find. Alas, it's time to let them go. The planes are incuse stamped NELSON at the toe. This mark belonged to William Nelson who worked in London from 1805-26 according to Goodman. All three planes were made at the same time, have the same patina, have an identical Jn. Brodie owner's stamp, and have always been together. There are three planes- a pair of No. 1 and 2 cove and ovolo planes sized for 3/4in stock and an exceptional ogee and ovolo sized for 5/8in stock . All of the blades are bedded at York pitch. None of the planes show any use at all. None have even a chip or scratch in them. The blades range from excellent to fair- some show pitting. These are usable planes after some work, but really they should be preserved as a set and as evidence of a master planemaker at his finest. The flaws are minor- a few age checks at the toe

Collection of Sash Makers Tools.
This is a small collection of tools unique to the sash making trace. Three are four sash mitre templates- two double and two single designed to help pare the mitre where the mullions meet. The sizes are stamped on the templates and two have model numbers- these were clearly manufactured rather than use-made tools. The profiles are three ogees and one stepped ogee. All are in excellent condition. Also included is a sash shave in the stepped ogee profile- this one is marked but I can't find a name. Finally, one of the nicest drip-edge planes I've found. Like almost all of them, it's user made, this one by a W.H. Sims. It's exceptionally well-made with a nice hand-hold . This plane was used to cut the small flute on the bottom of the sill to prevent water from wicking back up the sill and into the structure. It's a nice collection of tools for the aspiring sash maker, all look good and are completely usable.

This is a nice example of the English-made "Lewin" combination plane. It is roughly equivalent to the Stanley 45 ni terms of functionality if not form. The plane is well-made and feels good in the hand- much more ergonomic than the Stanley in my opinion. The plane comes with 19 cutters and is capable of plowing grooves, dados, beads, rabbets, and T&G joints. It is in very good condition complete in its original box. The only flaw is that the 1/8in plowing bit is broken. All of the other blades are in excellent condition.

This 55 is in its original metal tin. I believe it is complete with four full sets of blades. Both sets of rods, all three depth stops, and the cam rest are present. The original screwdriver is also included. It has an earlier script logo and probably dates to ca. WWII. The plane is in very good condition overall. The original nickel plating is around 90% overall. There are minor areas of tarnish and a few very small patches of surface rust. The blades are all in ver good condition with no pitting. The rosewood, handles and fences are all almost perfect with no chips or cracks. . All of the adjusting screws work smoothly. It's a good working plane. Two of the blade boxes are missing their paper labels, and the tin is missing its label as well.

Stanley No. 12 Scraper Plane.
This is the best scraper plane Stanley made in my opinion- I love the rosewood handles, the adjustable blade, and the sheer mass of the plane. This is a nice example in excellent condition. The original japanning is at least 95%. The adjuster works perfectly. The rosewood handles are just beautiful with nice color and grain. This one comes with two blades- the original Stanley scraper blade with a bold logo in excellent condition. It also comes with a No. 28 toothing blade, also with a bold Stanley mark. one edge of the blade is toothed, the other plain. The toothed edge is, unfortunately, ground on the wrong edge making it a normal scraper blade. If you regrind it on the proper edge you'll wind up with about 1/2in of usable "tooth" plenty enough for years of normal use. It's a beautiful, fully functional scraper plane with lots of life left in it.

Stanley 278 Rabbet and Fillister Plane.
This is a fairly scarce and desirable plane among Stanley collectors. They don't come up too often and they are frequently missing parts. This one is no exception- it has a proper fitting fence from a more common 78. The fence has been altered slightly to allow the plane blade to project out without hitting the fence when cutting rabbets that aren't too wide. The fence will work fine, but the collectors won't be interested in it. The plane is in good condition overall. It dates to the "type 11" WWI era, approximately 1912-18 based on the "V" logo on the lever cap screw. The original depth stop, blade, and nickers are present. The plane can cut rabbets with and across the grain. The nose piece is also removable allowing you to cut stopped rabbets- something that almost no other planes can do. While it may be useful, it looks like a nightmare to hold for long periods of time. I'm not doing much to sell it, I realize, but it's a scarce plane and priced to move. Maybe buy it to try out, th

Stanley 6C Fore or Jointer Plane.
This is an excellent example of the Stanley 6C fore plane. It looks to me like a pre-WWI plane based on the blade, shape of the tote, etc. but it has a later lateral adjuster with the vertical lettering. It's further evidence that Stanley didn't use the type study when they made their planes. The plane is in excellent condition with all original japanning, perfectly clean sides and sole and a near perfect knob and tote. The blade is perfect as well- clean with no pitting and a freshly honed bevel. It certainly hasn't seen much use, if any.

This is a deep coping saw with Pratt's patent blade locking mechanism. The handle is rosewood and very nicely shaped. It has nice color and grain and is tight to the frame. The frame is fairly clean with some finish loss and a clear mark. The thumbscrews turn easily and the clamps will hold bits securely. It will accept blades up to 4 1/2in long. The locking mechanism allows the saw to use any sort of blades- it does not rely on pins to hold the blade fast, rather the thumbscrews clamp the blade in place. I will include an assortment of vintage blades, all usable.

Atkins 26in Crosscut Saw.
The etch on this saw is extremely light and I can't make out the model. It's clearly an earlier saw, and a high-end model The saw has the earlier sunken style medallion with Glover's 1887 patent date. The plate is extremely thin and whippy and has a wonderful ring when struck. The handle is apple and besides from some minor finish loss and wear from the former owners' hands, is in very good condition. The plate is out very slightly right at the toe but the blade springs back to the same line when bent both ways heel-to-toe. It's 8PPI crosscut and 2 1/2in deep at the toe.

Dunn and Co. 12in Open-Handle Backsas.
Dunn & Co. was a mark used by Wheeler, Madden, and Clemson out of Middletown, NY. This saw likely dates to the last 1860s to early 1870s. It has Washbourne patent split saw screws and medallion. The handle is beech. It has a steel spine with the No. 5 above "Dunn & Co., Warranted Cast Steel". The saw is in fair condition but could be restored and used. The beech handle is tight to the plate and has no chips or cracks. The horns are long and elegant. The plate is 12in long and ranges from 2 1/4 to 2 1/2in deep. The plate is straight. It is covered with a dark patina. The back of the plate has minimal pitting, the front of the plate has pitting toward the toe. It's a good candidate to turn into a rip tenon saw, the pitting not being as much of an issue on a rip saw. A nice project saw that deserves a good restoration.

Spear and Jackson 10in Brass-Back Tenon/Dovetail Saw. .
This is a nice vintage Spear and Jackson open-handle brass-back saw with a 10in long plate. The plate is dead straight, fairly clean, and a consistent 2 1/2in deep under the spine. There are a few tiny pinpoint spots of pitting but nothing that will interfere with the usability of the saw .It has a beech open handle with nice long horns and no chips or cracks. The brass back has the Spear and Jackson logo along with the Leap Frog mark. The only flaw is that the handle has become a bit loose over time. A former owner remedied this with a wooden wedge inserted into the slot to tighten up the handle. This has worked well and the handle is perfectly tight. A fantastic little saw to put to use as either a dovetail saw or for small joinery work.

A very early and scarce style of saw- one of only a handful I've seen from Disston.

Vintage British Bow Saw.
This is a beautiful vintage bowsaw in usable condition. It accepts a 14in blade. The frams is made of beech, the London pattern handles of smooth golden boxwood. The blade is currently a super aggressive 5PPI rip blade with almsot 0 degree rake. This could explain the old well-repaired break in one arm. The repair is super strong and I cannot make it move when I try to bend it. I'd replace the blade with something much less aggressive and use it. It's a beautiful saw and deserves to be used.

The blade could easily be replaced with the pitch of your choice. A fine vintage bowsaw.

Interesting H.P. Chapin Fret or Coping Saw.
This fret saw has an interesting design, one I haven't seen before. It is stamped "H.P. Chapin Chicopee, Mass" on the frame. From researching it, I know his name was Horatio Pendleton Chapin, a member of the (apparently) vast Chapin clan of Massachusetts. Some more information on him here: http://records.ancestry.com/Horatio_Chapin_records.ashx?pid=34799096 and on other genealogy sites. I have no information at all on the company tyat made ir or whether the design was patented. The frame accepts a 5in blade of virtually any type or width. There are two thumbscrews that close the toothed clamps to hold the blade in place. There is a third thumbscrew to apply tension to the blade by moving the top clam away from the bottom. The frame enters the ferrule and handle through an over-built joint, one I haven't seen before. I will include a number of vintage jeweler's blades with this saw. The blades, numbering some several dozen in various degrees of coarseness, are enclosed in an interesting

Flexing the saw toe-to heel in both directions leaves the bow in the same shape, indicating that the saw plate still has excellent temper. It could be smithed out or used as-is.

Gorgeous Wooden Compass Plane by Moseley.
The classic British wooden compass plane is one of those intrinsically unique and beautiful tools I just love to find. The contrast between the golden, smooth boxwood toe and the warm, hand-worn beech is just striking. This plane has seen use, but was kept carefully and is still in excellent working shape. The body has no flaws and shows exceptional ray fleck. The blade is a massive 2 1/8in double iron by Ibbotson. It's a full 3/16in thick at the business end. The bevel is very sharp. The blade has more than 1 1/2in of life left, and it's nice and clean. The mouth is exceptionally tight. This is a great working plane to add to your collection or lineup of users.

Pair of Horned Bench Planes.
These planes have always been together. The share the same design, patina, blade maker, and even share the same minor damage. The plane bodies are unmarked. I'd say they were continental planes except that the blades in both planes were made by M.S. Loyd of Sheffield. The smaller plane is a single iron scrub plane with a 1 1/4in wide blade. The larger is a smooth plane with a stout 1 3/4in wide double iron. The iron in the smooth plane is exceptionally clean with no pitting at all and a sharp, honed bevel and a very, very tight mouth. The scrub has a single iron with some dark spots on the back of the blade but no pitting. Both planes have the same chips from the very tip of the horn- damage that could easily be smoothed out with a rasp leaving a comfortable horn to hold. Both planes would make excellent users and show little use at all.

Scarce Toted Sash Plane by Summers Varvill, York. .
This plane was made by Summers Varvill, the second Varvill to continue the family business in York. Summers worked from 1840-67 and was continued by his wife after his death until the company was reorganized by Robert and Sons in 1873. Varvill is known for making some of the highest quality wooden planes and this one is no exception. It's a very unusual British plane- a long, bench type sash plane that cuts both the inside and outside profiles- the decorative inside and exterior rabbet to hold the glass at one time. Most British sash makers used one plane to cut the molded profile, and a sash fillister to cut the rabbet. I think this is the first British plane of this sort I've come across. In typical Varvill fashion the heel is stamped with the plane type- "Lamb Tongue Sash" in this case. It cuts a nice lamb's tongue or ogee on 5/4 stock. The blades are in good shape, the tote complete with no chips or cracks at all. It's an unusual and usable plane.

Massive Wooden Jointer Plane.
This plane is Continental for sure- it's made out of that dense, hard wood most German and French planes were made from- perhaps hornbeam. The plane is 22in long and weighs in at a hefty 7.0lbs.

The mouth is still very tight as you can see in the photos. The plane body is very clean with no faults. The tote is a bit blocky, but it's made of the same material and seems to be original. It's pretty comfortable and appears to be attached to the body with a long screw so it could be easily reshaped/reattached if you like. The left cheek has a mark that reads:" Columbia, Reg. U.S. Patent Office with two brand marks I don't recognize. I'm not sure of the meaning of this mark, but I assume it has to do with the plane being made for the US market. It's a fantastic user plane in ready to work condition.
