Rare Stanley 2in Firmer Chisel made for Bell Systems.
This is one of the rarest Bell Systems tools- a huge 2in wide square-sided firmer chisel with a heavy-duty tange and ferrule. These were designed for use by lineman and I imagine that the ferrule was to make sure the blade was locked on to the handle- probably important when up on a pole. The tool has a bold Stanley and Bell Systems stamp. The back side is clean with no pitting so this is a totally usable chisel for large, heavy work. It's practically a slick, measuring over 16in from end to end. A rare find and an excellent tool to add to a collection or put to use.

Pair of Extra-Long Ward Paring Gouges.
Long paring gouges like these are getting hard to find. They are great tools to have on hand for all sorts of work. These are incannel gouges with the bevel on the inside, not on the outside like a carving tool. These can be used in a paring action much like a fine paring chisel. These were made by Ward, the famous English edge tool maker. They are both close to 16in long overall with thin, tapered blades. The smaller is 7/8in wide with a medium sweep, the larger 1 1/4in wide with a very flat sweep. The larger is in excellent condition with no pitting on the back and a good sharp bevel. The smaller has a small it of pitting ont he back but it's not too bad. The handles on both are perfect.

Massive TH Witherby 1 1/2in Framing Chisel.
This is a great working chisel with the famous witherby name. This is a Witherby mark I haven't seen before (and I've seen many) so it could date to the era before the name was used by Winsted, but I can't be positive of that. The blade is in fantastic shape. It looks like someone had it precision ground so it has a mirror-like finish and no pitting at all. The bevel is still fairly sharp. Overall it measures over 16in long with a nice gentle taper to the blade over its length. The original hickory has a steel ring and some damaged. It will work as-is or could be easily replaced.

James Swan 5/8in Bevel-Back Framing Chisel.
Here's an interesting Swan chisel- it's a heavy-duty 5/8in wide framing chisel with a stout, thick blade. It has what Swan called "bevel back" meaning that the top of the blade (what Swan calls the back) is triangular in cross-section, making it much more sturdy than a rectangular or rounded framing chisel. I haven't seen many of this pattern and this is definitely one of the best. The chisel measures almost 17in long overall. It has a crisp but faint Swan mark including the swan logo and "Best Cast Steel". The blade back is in very good condition with just one small patch of pitting about 1 1/2inches in back of the bevel- nothing to worry about at all for many years.

This is an ultra-thin paring chisel made by Sorby. It is just over 13in long with a fine tapered blade with a lot of flex to it.

James Swan Patented 1/4in Firmer Chisel.
This firmer chisel has Swan's Feb 26, 1901 patent stamped on the socket along with the swan logo and "Diamond Back, Best Cast Steel". The patent and "diamond back" designation refer to the cross-section of the chisel blade. Most firmer chisels are rectanfular in cross-section. Heavy-duty framing chisels are often found with an ovular top. Swan's "diamond back" design had a beveled or triangular cross section, which supposedly gave it more strength. This is the first Swan chisel I've found with the patent date stamped on it. The chisel is a firmer chisel by name, but in reality it is a very fine, thin 1/4in chisel with an elegant tapered blade. It's suited for fine paring work, and perhaps very light mortising. The hickory handle has leather washers butI'd think hard before striking it. The chisels is in excellent condition. overall.

This brace is clearly marked "Millers Falls Mfg. Co Greenfield, Mass No.2" on the top of the frame and "Barber's Improved Patent..." on the lower.

Overall the brace is in excellent condition with patina typical of its age. The chuck works perfectly. The handle is simply gorgeous and the head spins freely without any wobble at all. Many consider the Fray Spofford braces with the pewter ringed handles to be the nicest braces ever made- I think these early Millers Falls are just as nice if not nicer, and still remain reasonably priced. They are also a lot more scarce than the Spoffords. Summary: Rare, beautiful, usable brace.

This example was made between 1912-14. it has the steel rins in the handle to prevent splitting but still retains the cocobolo head and handle which were dropped in 1914 according to Randy' study. This example is in very good condition overall an is probably the nicest No. 15 I've found. The frame is clean with nor rust, just some patina from age.

The nickel plating is nearly perfect, the red japanning on the main gear 50% or so. A fine working drill and a fairly uncommon model.

Set of Six Snell Solid Center Auger Bits.
These bits are in excellent condition and are ready to use. They feature Snell's solid center design which means they have a single twist and are more resistant to bending than Jennings pattern bits. These augers all have a single coarse lead screw which is ideal for a general purpose set of bits. They will work well in any sort of wood from wet, green wood to dr cabinet woods, to very hard woods like sugar maple. The single coarse lead screw cuts a bit slower, but will resist stripping out and clogging better than a double fine lead screw. The bits are all shiny and clean with no rust. The lead screws, lips and cutters are all in perfect condition. The original wooden box is in good condition with much of the original paper labels remaining. The sizes included are 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, and 16 16ths. A great starter set of bits in ready to use condition.

Interesting 10in Brace.
This brace was made by the Lancaster Machine & Knife Works in Lancaster, NY. The brace has the enigmatic "L M & K WKS." logo on the chuck shell. It took me a while to track this one down but I finally found a reference to it in the EAIA DAT According to the DAT, the company operated from 1896-1925. They bace braces until 1916 when that part of the company was sold to Stanley so we can definitively narrow down the date of manufacture to 1892-1916. The brace incorporates Joseph Zirkleback's Oct 14,1890 ratchet patent. Pearson's book, The American Patented Brace, lists this patent as "NS" or "not seen". Good news, everyone! This patent can now officially said to have been "seen". The covers the two pawls that can engage the ratchet mechanisim to enable right, left, or a locked ratchet position. IT's a simple, lightweight, and effective design. The brace is in excellent condition overall. The pad and handle are rosewood and in great shape. The frame has no rust or pitting and everything

Scarce Holt Patent 8in Brace.
This brace was made by the Holt Mfg. Co. in Hartford, CT ca. 1880-90. It has the Dec 14, 1880 patent date on the frame along with the model no. 8. This patent covers the clamshell style split chuck. It is very similar to the Spofford chuck found on Fray's braces, except that the screw that runs through the chuck has a hole to accept the tang of the bit, which helps grip the bit more securely. These are scarce braces and demand high prices when found in mint condition with all of their gleaming nickel. This one has seen a lot of use and has virtually no nickel remaining, but the years have given it a nice patina and it works well. The pad and handle look like cocobolo. Both spin freely. The chuck tightens perfectly. It's a simple brace for straight-forward work. The unusual design gives it some interest

Collection of Thirteen Whitehouse Patent Auger Bits.
The design for these bits was patented by Cornelius Whitehouse ca. 1887. Whitehouse was British and registered his patent in both England and the US. Most of these bits are British, made by Marples. Whitehouse's patent was licensed and bits produced in the US by PS&W. The bits feature a unique leading cutter with the normal lead screw but with swept-back cutting lips that loop all the way around to the spiral of the shank. It's tough to describe- see the photos for details. These bits have same advantages as Cook's patent bits. The lack of any forward-facing spurs allow the bits to enter the work at almost any angle. This same feature makes them about the only bits capable of enlarging an existing hole. They also excel at boring end grain, something almost impossible to do with a standard Jennings or Irwin pattern bit. This collection consists of 13 bits. Some are matched and part of an original set. Some are ready to work, some will need some sharpening work. All of these bits have a

The depth stop works flawlessly and can be secured with a steel screw. The keyed wedges are in excellent shape and hold the arms perfectly. The arms are tight in their mortises yet can be adjusted easily. The plow comes with a set of seven irons, six by Griffiths. All fit properly for this plane. The irons are all in excellent condition and the plane is ready to use as-is.

Gorgeous Craftsman-made Marking Gauge.
This is a beautiful marking gauge made from what I believe is some sort of fruitwood, perhaps apple. The gauge has an early look to it with a nice gold/red patina of age and very fine, yery clearly hand-stamped graduations. The head has a wooden shoe made of the same wood that acts to protect the beam from being marred b the thumbscrew when set. It has an intentional notch in the shoe to allow the head to be adjusted right up to the point. The only mark on the gauge is "Joel K. Bliss", what I take to be an owner's (and perhaps a maker's) mark. A unique sounding name, I decided to google it and came up with a 1860 census record for a Joel K Bliss who lived in Springfield, MA and worked as a patternmaker. Considering where this gauge was found and its overall condition, it cannot be ruled out that this was the indeed the owner. A beautiful working gauge with a history.

The bodies are clean and crisp with no cracks, chips, or any sort of damage. The wedges are original and fit perfectly. The blades are both clean with no pitting.

The plane cuts a nice flat 3/8in ogee profile. It has a blade bedded at 55 degres- middle pitch. The body is especially clean and free of any major damage.

3/16in Center Bead by Gladwin and Appleton.
This is a scarce 3/16in center bead in usable condition. It's a scarce plane because almost every center bead I find has warped or twisted to the point where the front and rear boxing are no longer inline making the plan unusable. This plane has perfectly straight and level boxing all the way down the sole. There are some chips out of the boxing toward the toe, but it won't affect use since it's not near the mouth. The plane is otherwise clean and crisp. The blade is in excellent condition- sharp and clean with no pitting at all and a good, sharp bevel. The first nice, usable center bead I've had for sale in a long time. Gladwin and Appleton made planes in Chelsea, MA from 1873-77.

Exceptional 1/4in Side Bead by Thos. Appleton, Boston.
This plane cuts a nice small 1/4in side bead with an especially deep quirk. The plane is in excellent to nearly mint condition and shows little sign that it was ever used. The boxing is perfect- straight and level the whole way down the sole. The body is near perfect with crisp, sharp edges and barely even a nick or scratch from storage. The blade is near perfect and I believe has the original factory grind on the bevel. The mouth is perfectly tight. If you want a small side bead to use you won't find a better vintage plane than this one. Appleton made planes in Boston, MA from 1878-92. I consider him to be one of the best American planemakers, making some of the highest quality planes I come across today.

Small 1/2in Fenced Casing Plane by Auburn.
This plane cuts a nice 1/2in deep reverse ogee along the grain of a board. It's different from a normal reverse ogee molding plane in that it has a built-in fence that registers against the face of the board and is run vertically as opposed to a normal plane which would register against the edge of a board and is sprung. The result is a plane that is exceptionally easy to use- just hold it vertically and run it until it bottoms out. the plane is in excellent condition overall. The body is clean and shows just a few light hammer marks on the heel. The blade is perfect- clean and polised on the back and a fairly sharp bevel. It's a fun plane to use and an excellent edge treatment for long grain like shelves.

The blades are excellent, the grooving blade having a polished and honed bevel. The planes are in excellent shape with no flaws or apologies.

Tiny 1/2in Tongue and Groove Plane Pair by Varvill, York.
Varvill made some of the highest quality wooden planes in my opinion. The level of fit and finish on their tools is almost unsurpassed. These planes have always been together, sharing the same marks on heel and toe. The planes have nice details like the beautiful chamfered circular escapement on the tongue plane, a feature I've only seen on Varvill planes, as well as the nice flat chamfers on the hand holds. The planes are clean with no chips or cracks. They have an honest patina from age and some little use. The blades are in excellent shape with no pitting. They will sharpen up very easily and will be ready for use in no time. An excellent working pair of planes from one of the best makers in history.

Rare Bead Cove Quirk Molding Plane by Fuller, Boston.
This is a large 1in side bead with an interesting quirk- instead of returning vertically as you'd expect, it returns as a cove, making for a very interesting molding profile. Whelan documents this profile as a Bead Cove Quirk and notes that it is a rare profile. This plane is in very good condition overall showing some use but having no cracks, checks, or other defects. The blade is good as well with no pitting and the proper profile. Fuller was a planemaker working for other manufacturers as well as by himself from 1836-87. He worked on his own at Causeway St. in Boston from 1852-66. This stamp has a bold maker's mark which includes the Causeway address. A scarce profile that would make an excellent addition to a collection.

Unused Matched Pair of Iohn Green 5/8in Flat Ovolo Molding Planes.
These planes has seen zero use in their life and are in close to mint condition. John Green worked from 1787-1808 which would make the planes over 200 years old. Goodman does note that the successors to Green's business used his name as a brand after his death so it is possible that this plane is slightly later. Regardless the planes show no use at all and still have the factory grind on the blade and has never seen a honing stone. The blades are exceptionally clean with no pitting on the back. The mouths is still as tight as it could possibly be. The planes was originally intended to cut a 5/8in wide flat ovolo for sash work but this versatile profile coule be used in any number of ways. The planes are crisp and clean, made of dense English beech with outstanding ray fleck. The planes both have the same owner's amy maker's marks. One is marked 1, the other 2.

18th Century Molding Plane by Mutter of London.

Early 1/2in Square Ovolo by B. Bown, Winchester.
This plane was made between 1781-16 by Benjamin Bown. The plane has the hallmarks of an early 18th century plane- the shorter body, broad, flat chamfers along the top, and pronounced gouge marks at the toe and heel. It's a beautiful plane for sure. These features are normally found on earlier planes than this. Goodman chalks this up to the fact that Bown worked out in the country side away from the city and other plane makers so he wouldn't have been up to date on plane styles and trends. Besides looking good, the plane is also functional. It cuts a nice 1/2in wide by 1/2in long square ovolo. The body has clear hand prints on it from a former owner, but it was cared for and has no chips, cracks, or damage. The blade has minor pitting but is still fairly sharp and is ground perfectly to match the sole. It's an interesting and usable molding plane.

The blade is ground perfectly and will need to be lightly honed before use- a matter of a minute or two and it will be up and running. The blade is bedded at York pitch. The mouth is ultra-tight. The plane body is quite clean with a few light hammer marks the only evidence it was used at all. An exception molding plane in top condition.

This big plane could easily be used again in fact. The blade is very clean with no pitting and quite sharp. It's ground perfectly and matches the sole exactly. The boxed quirk is dead straight and level. If you have the strength and motivation (and perhaps a helper) you could absolutely use this plane after just a quick honing. The sheer width of the plane and the depth of the quirk make the plane stand up on its own very nicely, ideal if you want to put it on display. A fine plane that cuts a massive profile.

Classic British Sash Fillsiter by Routledge.
This plane was made by Routledge in Birmingham, England at the 23 Bull St location. According to Goodman the firm operated at this address from1876-81. The plane is in very good condition, having seen considerable use but obviously well cared for and respected. The plane has all the bells and whistles you'd expect to see in such a tool. For a tool that performs such a simple task- cutting a rabbet on a sash mullion to receive the window glass, the tool is incredibly ornate. It has wedged keys of boxwood to hold the beech arms in place. The fence is held to the bridge with screws held in brass rings so they can be easily tightened. The brass depth stop is massive and curvy with a steel wear strip peened on to the face for wear resistance. The skewed blade is in excellent condition- clean and razor sharp. The nicker iron is held in place with a boxwood wedge. It has a few hammer marks at the heel and obvious hand imprints from hours upon hours of use by its former owner. A beautiful plan

Solid Boxwood Screw-Arm Plow PLane.
This plow plane has all-boxwood construction- body, arms, fence, washers, and nuts. The wedge is beech. The boxwood gives it a considerable heft. It is completely unmarked at the toe. The plow is in very good working condition. The front and rear skate are straight and in alignment. The screw arms have remarkably few chips, and virtually none as you get closer to the arms which is where you will likely be using it the most. The fence has a chip out of the rear part up towards the bridge, not in a working area. The washers and nuts spin freely making it a breeze to adjust. There are minute checks in the boxwood on the bridge and on the heel- boxwood checks and there isn't much to be done about it. The checks in the bridge are secure and cannot be opened when I try to force it. The fence is held to the arms with screws, not peined so it can be tightened up if is comes loose. The plow comes with a full set of eight irons, seven by Wm. Ash. I've made sure that all of them fit properly. Th

The plane cuts an especially nice profile- a curvy quirk ogee and bevel measuring 3/8in deep by 3/4in wide. These dimensions are marked on the heel and measuring the profile verifies this. The blade is in near perfect condition. It has a clean back with no pitting. The bevel is still reasonably sharp. Just as important, it matches the profile of the sole exactly. The boxing is perfect and the mouth is still tight. The blade is bedded at York pitch. It's a fine candidate to put to use.

Interesting Slipped Reverse Ogee by Atkinson, Baltimore.
This is the first example of a plane like this I've ever seen. The plane cuts a nice 3/8in wide by 1/2in deep reverse ogee- an especially curvy profile. It has the normal fence and depth stop you'd expect. The difference is that the fence is removable, or slipped, much the same way a slipped side bead has a removable depth stop. This allows the plane to cut this profile away from an edge or right against another molding profile. The plane was made by John Atkinson & Co. who worked in Baltimore ca. 1837-38 according to AWP-IV. The mark rates *** for rarity. The plane is in excellent condition overall with an exceptionally clean body with no damage. The blade is in excellent with no pitting on the back. It's a very interesting and totally usable molding plane.

Matched Pair of 7/8in Handled Tongue and Groove Planes.
These planes were made by H. Chapin in the Union Factory. The planes cut a tongue and groove joint centered on 7/8 stock but will work on stock +/- 1/8in in either direction. The planes are in good, usable condition. The blades are clean with lots of length and good bevels. There is no rust or pitting. The closed totes have minimal damage and nice long horns. Both planes have seen considerable use and have 120+ years of dings and scratches, as well as mashed (though sturdy) wedges as evidence. The biggest flaw is a crack in the fence of the tonguing plane. It's stable and the fence is still straight so this is mostly a cosmetic issue. They are an ideal size for large c a.binet work or stronger construction like a tool chest.

It's a nice early Mosely in great shape.

This is a nice usable ogee by A. Mathieson & Son of Glasgow. The plane has a York pitch blade that cuts a nice 3/8in wide and steep ogee.

Excellent 1 1/4in Skew Rabbet Plane.
This plane is completely unmarked but I'd bet almost anything it's British and dates to teh mid-19th century. The plane is in exceptional condition and shows little use. The corners and edges are crisp and sharp, including the working corner which is almost always found worn-down on vintage planes. The mouth is still tight and the blade is perfectly clean with no pitting. It also projects evenly across the sole so it shouldn't require any grinding to get it up and running. The blade has no pitting or ruse. The wedge has a few hammer marks but fits properly. It's one of the better rabbet's I've had in a long time.

Interesting Rosewood 1in Square Rabbet Plane.
This plane has no maker's marks. Based on the wood it could be a shipwright's plane. It is very well made and has seen a good amount of use. It has a 1in blade which is square, not skewed. The blade is bedded at York pitch. It has some micro-pitting on the back which laps out easily- I gave it a few swipes on my 200 diamond stone and the first 1/2in or so clean up in seconds. It will take very little effort to get it up and running. It's in good condition overall with the expected scratches and dings, and evidence of a fence being attached at some point. Interestingly, the mortise for the wedge and blade is over-size. It has a secondary small wedge (well made from the same material so I'm sure it's original) which fills in the gap. It looks purpose-done, I just can't figure out the reason. Anyhow, it's a good, usable square rabbet made of beautiful wood.

Mathieson, Glasgow 3/4in Skew Rabbet.
This is a small skew rabbet that will make a good user with a bit of work. The body is in good shape with no chips,c racks, or twist. It has a little wear in the front portion so it should be jointed really quick to even it up. The blade has seen a lot of use and the angle is off a bit so you'll need to re-grind the bevel to the proper angle. It also has some micro-pitting on the back which will lap out easily- I gave it a few swipes on the diamond stone and the first 1/2in or so cleaned up easily. It requires a bit of work but you'll wind up with a good small rabbet plane.

Beautiful Greenslade Sash Fillister.
The sash fillister is an almost exclusively British tool. It was used by sashmakers to cut the rabbet that held the glass ont he outside of a window. It operated on the same principle as a moving fillister, with a nicker, depth stop, fence, and skewed blade, but the blade cuts on the oposite side of the fence as a moving fillister. Like plow planes these were often highly decorated and intended as showpieces as well as working planes.This example is a classic British design with all of the bells and whistles you would expect on a high end plane. The plane has arms that slide through the body. The arms are brass-capped and feature crossed boxwood wedges on each end. The keys that hold the arms in place are boxwood and are complete with some wear. The arms do slide easily but lock down tight. The arms are mounted slightly higher on the box on this one than most I've seen, resulting in a precise semi-circular cut out just below the hand hold on the escapement side of the plane. Both cut

The adjusters work perfectly. As a point of interest, the back of the lever cap has the outline of the SW logo cast in it, a fairly rare mark. The blade, alas, isn't great. It is full-length and has a crisp SW mark but it has pitting on the back that would require a lot of work to remedy. I will enclose a replacement blade in excellent condition from a similar era. With the new blade in place it will be a fantastic user, and a beautiful plane.

This is a wartime WWII era for plane made, according to the stamp on the blade, at the end of 1945.

The blade is excellent as well with a perfectly clean back and nearly full length business end. The blade adjuster works smoothly.

It has a japanned candle/lever cap and some parts of the body were japanned as well. It's a small planethat fits great in the hand and would be very hand for small trim/fit jobs.

The mouth is still incredibly tight- evidence of the high degree of precision these planes were made to. both the blade and the embossed lever cap have the EP logo. the body has the Rd 372093 mark as shown in the 1909 Preston catalog. There is a small flaw- a tiny chip out of the bed in back of the blade. This isn't unexpected due to the incredibly low angle of the cutting iron and the thin casting at that spot. It wont' affect use but it takes it out of the collector's realm so it's more affordable for a user.

nice Stanley 4 1/2 Heavy Smoother.
This plane is a type 6 made ca. 1892. It has all of the features of this type- three patent dates on the lateral lever, the patent dates on the blade adjusting wheel, and the S Casting mark. The rosewood tote has the slightly thicker look to it which the early types like this had. The rosewood is in excellent condition with outstanding color and grain and no chips or cracks. The plane body is especially clean and shows japanning loss only where the former owner's left hand gripped the knob. There is a small chip out of the front of the casting near the knob. It's been smoothed out over the years and isn't noticeable when the plane is gripped. The plane has clearly seen a lot of use. The original iron has only about 3/4in of life left to it. I'd be happy to send a replacement along with the plane if you aren't already planning to add an aftermarket blade. All of the adjusters work perfectly with no slop. It's a good-looking, early 4 1/2 ready to be used.

It has some of the wartime economies- specifically the hardwood knob and tote instead of rosewood, but it does have brass screws and adjusting wheel, and it also has the frog adjusting screw which is missing on some wartime planes. It has the typical thick casting that planes from this era are famous for. The extra mass in casting adds more than a pound to the overall weight of the plane giving it that much more inertia in use. The plane is in excellent condition overall. The blade is long and sharp with a polished back and no pitting. The adjusters work perfectly. The body is nice and clean. The tote does have an old repaired crack. The repair is well-done and strong. It will make a perfect user jointer.

Stanley No. 3 Type 11 Small Smooth Plane.
This is simply the best type 11 I've ever found. The plane is in near mint condition. It is all original and correct to the type. It has not been cleaned.

The blade has been honed but is perfectly clean otherwise. Even the V logo is clean inside the Stanley logo, further proof that it was never cleaned. I have to dig really deep to find any flaws at all. The sole has a few scratches on it. The sides have a couple of spots of very light discoloration- not rust and these could be cleaned up if you want but any sort of abrasive used to clean the spots is going to be obvious so I'll leave it as is. I'm really nit-picking here. You won't find a better example. Buy it to use. Or put it on a shelf. It's up to you.

The casting is definitely thicker than normal, giving the plane a bit of additional heft. The japanning is 100%. The blade is full-length and freshly honed. It will work well right out of the box. A great working smooth plane.

Excellent WWII Era Stanley 5 1/4 Junior Jack PLane.
This plane was made in the early years of WWII and lacks the wartime economies that most planes from that era feature.

Stanley SW Era No. 5 Jack Plane.
This is a type 15 made during the waning years of the Sweetheart Era ca. 1931-32. The plane has all of the correct parts and features for a plane from this era. It's seen a lot of use based on the wear patterns and length of the original blade, but it's still got quite a bit of life in it. The sides have a even dark patina from use. The japanning is 98% or better. The original rosewood knob and tote have no major damage, just a few tiny dings and some loss of finish. The adjusters work well. The blade has some pitting.

Simonds No. 372 24in Blue Ribbon Panel Saw.
The model 372 was in Simonds' "Blue Ribbon" line of saws, their top end saws made of the finest materials and workmanship. The saws literally had blue paint on the etched banner that appears in the logo. This paint tends to disappear almost as soon as the saw was put to use and never survives a cleaning so finding saws with original blue paint today is hard. This one has almost all of its blue paint on the the labels, and a crisp clear etch. You can also make out the grind mark down the spine of the saw as shown in the catalogs. The saw has a wheat-carved apple handle in excellent condition with just some minor finish loss. The saw is 24in long and 7PPI crosscut. The teeth are sharp and were filed with sloping gullets. The plate is straight. It's a fine working panel saw in exceptional condition, ready-to-use out of the box.

I can't find any information on the company, but the Boston Highlands area is knows today as Roxbury. During the 1800s it was a streetcar suburb of Boston with many townhouses and light commercial and industrial buildings. It was also home to the Boston baseball grounds where the first world series was played in 1903. Hey, I used to live there- I like the place. Anyhow, the saw- the saw is in very good shape overall The 14in plate is a consistent 3 1/4in deep. It is straight, or "straight enough" as Matt Cianci agreed the other weekend. Matt worked to reseat spine a bit to tighten up the handle. The result is a wonderful old saw in perfectly usable cond

Absolutely Gorgeous 14in Bowsaw.
This bowsaw is exceptional in several ways. First, the wood it is made of is gorgeous. The arms and stretcher are made of quartered oak with spectacular ray fleck. The wood has aged to a deep red brown is is magnificent. The handles appear to be some sort of rosewood. They are polished and smooth with nice grain and color. The whole saw has a beautiful appearance. The saw is tensioned with a mechanisim I haven't sen before. it has a threaded steel rod that stretches between arms. It is tensioned by spinning a brass wheel which is pinned to the threaded rod. It's an interesting and effective design. The overall construction of the saw is also exceptional. The saw has beautiful lines and curves and is shaped to take advantage of the oak's slightly curing grain to reduce run-out and strengthen the thin arms. The details are also quite nice with stopped chamfers along the stretcher terminating in coves on all four corners before they reach the arms. Small details, but they add up to a beau

This is a fairly scarce pattern plane- I've only seen one or two over the years. It's designed to cut stopped chamfers, a detail that's hard to cut without a special plane like this.

The fence allows you to precisely regulate the width of the chamfer. The blade is in good shape and measures 1 1/4in wide. The body has no chips or cracks. A good, usable plane from one of the best British makers.

Nice Wooden Toothing Plane by William Ross, Baltimore.
This plane bears the Wm. Ross mark with the 44 Light Street address which dates it to 1862-66 according to AWP-IV. The plane is in excellent condition overall with crisp edges, a nicely sculpted wedge, and a near perfect fine toothing blade by Peugeot. The blade is massive, nearly 3/16 thick at the business and and very fine toothed- around 32PPI. This is a good blade for veneer work or other fine work, nor necessarily for hogging off material There is a very shallow check just in back of the left cheek, but it has not extended down the side of the plane and I believe it is perfectly stable. The iron is loose enough that seasonal changes won't make this open up. It's a minor defect that I mention for the sake of full disclosure. It's a fantastic user toothing plane.

Exceptional Jack or Fore plane by the Baltimore Plane Co.
This 16 inch long wooden jack or fore plane was made by or for the Baltimore Plane Co which operated ca. 1890 according to AWP-IV.

Regardless of who made it, it's in fantastic condition. The body has no chips cracks or checks. The mouth is super tight. The tote feels fantastic and has not the smallest chip or crack. There is an ebony strike at the toe. The blade is a massive laminated tapered double iron by Sandusky more than 3/16 thick at the business end. It's clean and sharp with not a speck of pitting.

Early Horned Smoothing Plane.
This plane follows the form of a classic Continental horned plane but it has several refinements that set it apart from most I find. First, the horn has an unusual form to it. Besides the usual curve and twist to fit the user's left hand, it is contoured in cross section, an improvement that makes it fit my hand like a glove- it's truly wonderful to hold. The plane also has a lignum strike at the heel, and a nice decorative mark around the base. The blade is a massive, tapered double iron by E. Parker and Sons of Sheffield. The blade is in good shape with lots of life in it. A nice wooden plane to put to use.

Very Interesting German Adjustable Skewed Plane.
I can't quite figure out the intended use of this plane. Everyone I showed it to was stumped as well. It has a 2 1/8in wide skewed double iron. It uses an interesting screw-adjuster to regulate blade depth. the plane has threads out of the left hand side of the plane. There are boxwood screws and nuts to allow the one-piece L shaped fence to be adjusted and regulate the width of cut. The blade does not project out of the side of the mouth or I'd call it a fillister. Also, the fence is on the wrong side for a right-handed user. So far the best thing I've come up with is a left-handed adjustable panel rasier. I'd be happy to hear other suggestions. Whatever it is it's a wonderfully made plane with perfect screw arms, nuts, and washers. The wedge has some minor damage but holds well and the blade is excellent. Whatever it is it can be yours for...
