Holt's braces are noted for the unique clamshell chuck design, similar to the Spofford with its split-frame but more refined.

This brace has only a smal fraction of its original nickel plating remaining, but the iron fame is in very nice condition. It's easy to see that the long arm was welded in, not produced in once piece. The other Holt Whimble I saw was of a similar welded construction.

This one is in ner mint condition and is complete with a full compliment of eight bits, all in perfect condition.

It lets you apply the most torque and pressure while still giving you a good "feel" for the work to help prevent stripping a screw. This collection of seven square shank screwdriver bits includes five regular bits in various sizes from very small to huge, as well as two different size split nut (or spanner) driver bits for work on saw screws and otherwise.

Woden Dowelling Jig.
Until I cam across this one, I'd only seen the Stanley and Craftsman brand doweling jig. This Woden brand jig, which is made in England, is a totally different tool. It's very heavy and obviously well-made. It has a much larger bearing surface and is capable of aligning and boring two dowel joints at once. It's clearly made for professional use. It can accept three sizes of dowels- 1/4, 5/16, and 3/8. All six collets are present and the well-designed box has a place to hold the four collets not currently installed in the jig.

Millers Falls No. 12 Two Speed Breast Drill.
This is a big drill for big jobs. It has Leland's universal jaws so it can grip just about any bit. There are two speeds, selected by depressing a spring pin and removing the drive gear from one hole, and inserting it into another. The effective drive ratios are 1:1 and 3:1. The crank arm is adjustable to allow the user to choose between speed and torque. This is a good working example with almost all original finishes, an intact level vial, and a smooth gear mechanisim.

Otis A Smith Adjustable Countersink.
I had never seen one of these before two weeks ago and now I've come across two! This is an odd little countersink made to attach to a gimlet or twist bit. It would provide an easy way to bore a countersunk pilot hole for a screw. It is marked "Otis A Smith,Rockfall, Conn". There is no patent date on the tool but Smith was apparently granted the patent for this design on OCT. 6, 1885, though this patent doesn't appear in DATAMP. An interesting, useful tool.

Millers Falls No. 2 Bit Gauge.
This is an interesting bit gauge- a departure from the normal Stanleys I usually find. This design features a spring-loaded catch that clamps to almost any sort of bit, spiral auger, twist, gimlet, or otherwise. There is an adjustable leg that meets the work to accurately regulate the depth of a hole. to prevent the work from being marred, the business end is a steel ball which rides on six steel ball bearings allowing it to roll in its socket when it reaches the work. It's an interesting design and works quite well.

Nice Sheffield Brace by Slater with Full Set of Mathieson Bits.
This brace is made of beech and reinforced with brass. The head is lignum. The brace is in very good condition overall with a nice patina and no damage at all. There are no cracks or chips in the beech. All of the brass inserts are still tight with no sharp points sticking out. The head revolves easily but has almost no slop at all. The spring-loaded retaining button is still tight. It is marked SLATER on the chuck. I find two Slaters lister in Roberts' Some 19th Century English Woodworking Tools: Joseph Slater working 1822-41 in Sheffield and Thomas and Joseph working from 1841-on. This example is easily in the top 5% of these braces that I find. This is a beautiful tool and a fun one to use.

This brace comes with a full set of 39 vintage bits. The majority of these bits are Mathieson except for the largest center bits. The set of bits includes (variously, lef to right in the first picture) eight shell bits, Fifteen Center bits (all perfectly usable most recently sharp and r

North Brothers Yankee No. 540A Multi-Speed Hand Drill.
This is a heavy duty hand drill with North Brother's famous multi-gear transmission. The user can select from one of five settings by flicking a switch. We have plain, RH Ratchet, LH Ratchet, RH Double (my favorite where no matte which way the handle is turned the chuck turns to the right, perfect for tight spaces), and lock for changing bits and whatnot. This model has the patented hollow magazine handle to hold extra bits. The chuck is a two-jaw universal design which can accept bits up to 3/8in. This example is in very good condition overall. It has finish loss on the frame, but the handles are all excellent with almost all orignal finish. The transmission works perfectly, as does the chuck. I have seen the No. 540 in the 1912 and 1918 catalogs I have, but I have not seen a 540A before. This is a great working dril in every respect.

Early Patented 10in Brace.
This brace has two patent dates on it and no maker. The frame has the Feb 11, 1879 patent date which covers the Power/Peck patented chuck sleeve. I would therefore bet that the brace was made by Peck, Stowe, and Wilcox in Southington, CT. The ratcheting mechanisim has a partial patent stamp of Feb 19, 18xx. The brace is beautifully made with Lignum handle and pad. The ratchet is engaged by selecting and moving one of two pawls to select right or left hand action. The brace is in very good condition overall and will make a great user. The lignum head and handle are near perfect, the head having an attractive sapwood streak. An interesting, usable brace.

The dril has two gears that offer drive ratios of 1:1 and 3:1. it has a heavy-duty two jaw chuck with universal jaws capable of holding just about anything. The speed is changed by removing the main gear. A vutton is depressed which releases the retaining spring allowing the gear to be removed. It can then be inserted into one of two holes in the frame, engaging one drive gear or the other. It's in very good condition overall and works beautifully. It's a nice drill for heavy duty work.

North Brothers No. 1530 Ratcheting Hand Drill.
This is one of my favorit Yankee tools. The amount of gizmosity jammed into this one little tools is amazing. The drill has five different modes, selected by sliding a switch long the main shaft. Plain and lock are self-explanatory. It also has left- and right-hand ratchet modes, both of which work perfectly. The most interesting is RH Double which rotates the chuck clockwise regardless of which way the handle is turned, prefect for boring holes in tight quarters. The drill is in excellent condition all around and operates perfectly. The three jaw chuck works well. The handle can be removed by turning a knurled retaining ring. Ti can then be used for bit storage. The only drawback is that the crank is marked with the model No. 1435. These drills used the same crank so it's not a big deal, but I can't explain why this has the wrong crank. Regardless, it's a fine small eggbeater drill to ut to use.

Scarce and Interesting Abbot Patent Countersink.
the world of patented countersinks is a weird place. Many of these tools are so strange it's difficult to tell their intended purpose until you look up the patent data. This one is very straight forward, elegant, and effective. TI was patented on July 25, 1871 by Sewall Abbott of Deering, ME. The countersink has an easy to sharpen cutter that looks almost like a pointed plug vutter. To that there is a separate "leg" which clamps to the shaft of the bit with a thumbscrew. This "leg" acts as a depth stop to limit the depth of the countersunk hole. It's ingenious and I believe fairly rare. This one is complete, sharp, and in excellent condition with a bold patent date.

It has a lignum head with a nice contrasting sapwood streak. I believe the handle is rosewood. Both are tight with no damage and little slop if any. The handle has brass rings to prevent splitting. The chuck has McCoy's jaws and is in excellent working order with no wear. The nickel plating is 95% overall with minimal discoloration on the bare areas. It's an excellent example of a rare brace.

Unused 2 5/8in Double Iron by Woodcock, Sheffield .
James Woodcock was a Sheffield edge tool manufacturer which operated from 1863-1900 according to Ken Roberts' Some 19th Century English Woodworking Tools. This blade does not bear the "& sons" which was added in 1879 which leads me to suspect this blade dates to the earlier side of his working period. The blade is massive- 8 1/2in long, 2 5/8in wide and 3/16 thick at the business end. It weighs 1 1/2pounds. It was never honed and shows no use at all. The back is clean with no pitting at all. The cap iron fits tightly and bears the Woodcock logo as well. the blade has an honest patina of age overall, but no rust or damage. It's a laminated blade with high carbon tool steel forge welded to less expensive steel above. It's a great blade for a large jointer plane or to design a plane (maybe a huge smoother) around.

Mathieson User-Modified 3/4in Dado Plane.
This plane was originally a 1in wide dado that was modified by a former owner at some point to 3/4in. The modification was well-done and clearly some time ago based on the even patina throughout the plane body. The plane will work well- both the nicker and blade have been modified to the new size. The blades both have some good length remaining. The depth stop works well. It will make a fine user at a bargain price for this highly desirable size.

Nice British Rosewood Mortise Gauge.
This auge has a mark on it that I can't quite make out. I believe I can see Liverpool at the bottom but I can't be sure. Regardless, it's a perfect user mortise gauge in great shape. The head and beam are made of Brazilian rosewood. They have little or no finish on them and when you handle the gauge a while and adjust the sliding pin you can smell the rosewood. It's unmistakable. The ping sare both long and in good order. The head has two brass wear strips. The sliding pin is tight but moves without much effort. The locking screw is almost certainly a replacement but it holds the head fast and works just fine. An excellent working mortise gauge.

British Rosewood Slitting Gauge.

This one has all of the classic British hallmarks including the small brass wedge which holds the slitting knife. The head and beam are really nice rosewood. The head has inlaid brass wear strips. It has well-worn and patinated boxwood thumbscrew to lock the head in place. The whole tool has lots of wear and patina from careful use. It's still in good, usable condition. The knife is still very long and sharp. These gauges score the wood fiber with a knife edge which creates a bold, crisp line you can use to register your chisel or saw. It's my favorite type of gauge to use. It's a solid, usable slitting gauge.

Very Early 18th Century Molding Plane by Mutter, London.
George Mutter worked in London from 1766-1799. This plane has all the hallmarks of an early 18th century pane including the broad, flat chamfers and deep gouge cuts at the start of the hand hold. It also has a deep cove at the horizontal transition from the escapement side of the plane to the handhold, a feature that disappeared later on. The plane cuts a really curvy 7/8in deep by 1in wide ogee. It's in good condition overall. It's been used a lot for sure but it has a nice overall patina from age and shows no signs of abuse. The body has minimal wear. The plane evidently hit a nail or some extremely hard knot or something at some point. This left a groove in the bottom curve of the ogee and a nick in the blade. If you intend to put the plane to use the blade will have to be ground. I think it would still be an absolutely usable plane afterwards, or just a nice addition to a collection of 18th century planes.

The plane is in very good condition overall with some wear and signs of use, but no chips, cracks, or abuse. The blade is in good condition and matches the sole profile. The maker, Peter Mckay & Co. worked in Glasgow ca. 1868-74 according to Goodman. The plane was made for a hardware dealer on Birdegate in Glasgow.

Early Quirk Ogee and Astragal by Arthur, Edinburgh.
This plane has an early appearance to it and cuts an appealing profile. The quirk ogee and astragal is about 7/8in wide by 1/2in deep. The plane has one owner's mark and has seen a lot of use as evidenced byt he short iron. The iron is still in decent shape and has a good bit of life to it. David Arthur, and later his sons, worked in Edinburgh ca. 1793-1844. This plane has the earliest mark and certainly falls within the beginning of that time frame. An early, usable plane.

exceptional 5/8in Reverse Ogee by Evans, Rochester.
This plane is in excellent condition overall. The body is crisp and clean with no faults. The blade is excellent as well with a nice clean black with no pitting and a properly ground bevel profile that matches the sole exactly. E & J Evans worked in Rochester from ca. 1841-85. The plane cuts a nice steep reverse ogee about 1in wide and 5/8in deep. An excellent molding plane with a great shape in outstanding condition.

Interesting Handled Dado Plane.
This plane has an unusual form. It's a dado plane with a skewed cutter and double nicker iron but it has a integral tote and no depth stop. It might be some sort of specialty tool for a specific job but I've never seen one before. There is no maker's mark, just "Patented" stamped twice at the toe. The plane cuts a dado just a hair over 3/4in in width. The nicker iron is short, but appears as if it always was based on the cut-out in the body. The main blade is in excellent shape. A strange one.

Excellent Unmakred Molding PLane.
This is a pretty little plane, completely unmarked but very well made and apparently quite old. It came out of the Colonial Willamsburg collection last year and most of those tools sat idel in their storage are for many decades. The plane is made of beech with a 1/8in thick parallel iron. The plane cuts a ver pleasing quirk ogee and ( I guess) a quarter round. It looks a lot like the more common quirk ogee and bevel but the bevel is rounded over, giving it a very pleasing profile. the profile is approximately 3/4in wide by 3/4in deep. The blade is in near perfect condition and precisely ground to match the sole. It's a beautiful plane which should work very well.

Very Early 1/2in Astragal Molding PLane.
This plane is clearly very early, probably 18th century. There is a maker's mark at the toe that I can't quite make out. I don't want to guess whether it's British or American. It is in good condition overal and is still usable. The boxing is straight and solid, with one seam towards the toe. It has some wear byt no damage. The quirk is especially deep on this plane. The plane body has lots of dings and wear but no major faults. The blade is still in very good condition. It's a nice usable example of an early molding plane.

Unmarked Quirk Ogee and Astragal Molding Plane.
This plane is completely unmakred but the form suggests to me that it's very early and possibly British. it cuts a shallow, flat quirk ogee and astragal profile. The profile is just over 1in wide and 1/2in deep. The plane is in very good condition with signs of lots of careful use. The blade is still in excellent condition- sharp clean and ground to match the sole profile. The plane has wide, flat chamfers, deep gouge cuts at the transition to the hand hold, and a rounded wedge finial. All together this suggests to me that it's probably 18th century but I can't tell for sure. It's a useable plane, and a nice profile.

Unusual Cove and Astragal Molding PLane.
One more unusual molding plane for this time- another plane that appears to be very early based on its short height, broad, flat chamfers, and round wedge finial. It cuts a most bizarre profiel I ca only describe as a cove and astragal. The plane is in very good condition overall and appears quite usable if you can think of a place to use this sort of profile. It's an unusual and early plane.

Matched Pair of 5/8in Sash Ovolo Molding Planes.
These planes were made by Mackay, Burley, and Heys in Glasgow between 1875-90. The planes were both owned by a D. McFarlane and were used to cut the profile on the inside of a sash window. While there isn't much call for sash work these days, the flat ovolo profil makes an excellent general-purpose edge treatment for all sorts of work. Both plane shave very long fences which makes them very easy to use. Both planes have excellent blades and very tight mouths. It's a nice working pair in very good condition.

Strange Grooving PLane.
This plane is a weird one- it cuts a 1/8in wide groove 3/16in deep centered 1/4in from the edge of a board. It's clearly intended for a specific use, I just can't hink of what it is. It has an especially steep iron bedded at 60 degrees. It is in good condition overall with lots of signs of use anda tight crack in the fence right at the heel which could be glued if you intend to use it. A strange one.

Strange Side-Cutting Dovetail Molding Plane.
This is another strange plane I dug out of my collection of molding planes. The plane has an almost upright iron much like a side rabbet. Unlike a side rabbet both sides of the lower portion of the plane are parallel. The sole is a narrow strip 1to provide support but not get in the way of the cutter. The cutter cuts on one side only and projects out on an angle like a tiny dovetail plane for cutting the slot for a sliding dovetail, only the scale of this profile is all wrong. I think, though I can't be certain, that this was a planemaker's plane, used to undercut the groove for the dovetailed boxing in a plane like a sash fillister. The profile matches exactly the plane Whelan describes as used for this purpose on page 366 of his book "The Wooden Plane". It appears that this plane was made specially for this purpose, not modified, and is clearly very well made. It's an interesting one for sure.

Nice Early Quirk Ogee and Bevel Molder by Holbrook.
This plane was made by George Holbrook in Bristol ca. 1799-1849. The plane is in very good condition overall and is still completely usable. The plane shows its age with lots of patina and grime, but is actually pretty crisp and appears little used. It only has two owners' marks on the heel and toe and few hammer marks on the heel. The profile is a pleasing 1 1/8in wide by 5/8in deep (approximate) quirk ogee and bevel, the ogee being especially flat. It is double boxed, a nice touch, with both the high wear areas around the quirk and transition from the bottom of the ogee to the bevel reinforced with boxing. The blade is long and clean and quite sharp. It's still ground well and matches the sole. It's a good usable plane with a nice profile.

Quirk Ogee and Bevel by Heidls, Nottingham.
This plane cuts a nice mid-size quirk ogee and bevel. The plane itself is in very good shape overall with nice boxing and no issues. The blade has been ground improperly, but not terribly far off from true, and will need some work to return it to the proper profile. It's a really nice plane and a pretty profile so I think it's worth the work.

Mathieson 7/8in Ogee Molding Plane.
This plane was made by Mathieson in Glasgow. It cuts a big 7/8in wide by 7/8in deep ogee. It's seen a good bit of use in the past and has a few scars. Most noticeable, some knucklehead has taken a saw or chisel to the ramp and gouged the hell out of it. It doesn't affect use but it's ugly and unfortunate. Further, there is a small chip in the sole right in front of the top most corner of the ogee profile. Otherwise the plane is fine and the blade is clean and razor sharp, ready to work.

Early 3/8in Dado PLane by Lourie, Edinburgh.
This plane was made by William Lourie in Edinburgh between 174-1813 and has his tiny maker's mark at its toe. The plane is unusual as it lacks any provision for a depth stop and has the dado centered on the body rather than flush with one wide. This would have the body act as a fixed depth stop but for what purpose someone would want a plane that cuts a dado 3/8in wide and 5/in deep I don't know. The plane coud be regulated by sight for sure, but I think there's more to it than that, perhaps a specialized task. The plane is in excellent condition overall, remarkable considering it could be over 200 years old. The body is crisp and clean, the blades nice and clean and sharp. The sole is straight with no twist. It's a perfectly usable dado plane in top shape.

Four H. Chapin Round Molding Planes.

Big Quirk Ogee and Bevel Mlding Plane by Leist, Norwich.
This plane was made by James Leist in Norwich ca. 1822-75. The plane cuts a big quirk ogee and bevel, a profile commonly used in casing and frames. The profile is 1 3/4in wide by 3/4in deep. It's a nice curvy profile not too big for case work as well. As a bonus it stands up almost vertically on its own, making it easy to display on a shelf. The plane is going to be usable with some minor tuning. The boxing is straight and shows little wear save a tiny chip out of the very rear. The blade is dark but has no pitting and is ground nearly dead-on but will require a good bit of honing since it's pretty dull. The body has no damage, just the usual gentle wear you'd expect.

1 1/4in Skew Rabbet by Merritt & Co. .
This plane is in good, usable condition overall. The good points are that the body is very clean and heavy- made of dense beech. The blade is very sharp and in great shape. The problem is that the plane has some wear on the working edge, especially on the non-escapement side ahead of the blade. It's still totally usable and for rough work this would be fine. What this plane really needs is wear strip to be let-in to the leading edge to make it a superb worker. It's an excellent candidate for such work, though it will work fairly well as-is.

5/8in Flat Ovolo by Griffiths, Norwich.
This is a heavily used plane as evidenced by the shorter blade and the amount of grime (almost certainly tallow) on the plane body. There are cleaner areas where the former owners' hands have worn away the patina. The blade is still in good shape, if a bit short, and has no pitting. It's a decent, usable ovolo if not the prettiest thing.

It's an unusual form that I dont' recall seeing before. The plane is in excellent working order with a perfectly sharp, clean blade and very little wear. It does have some discoloration toward the toe and some dings and scratches on the non-escapement side, bit it's otherwise clean and perfectly sound. It has a maximum width of cut of just a hair over 1in. It's a perfectly usable plane for making precise rabbets.

The pair of planes is in very good condition and both will make fine workers. The bodies are clean with a chip to the horn on the grooving plane the only damage to the handles. The skate on the grooving plane is straight and both planes have steel wear strips on the fences to keep them true. The blades are in good working order with no problems. It's a good, usable pair of planes in a useful size for larger case work like tool chests, etc.

This plane offers and adjustable fence to allow it to fit any thickness sash. The lane is in very good to excellent condition overall with no damage, little wear, and a nice deep patina of age. Interestingly, this plane has a Mathieson mark not shown in Goodman's book. A scarce, specialized plane in great shape.

Working Plow PLane by J Kellogg, AMherst.
This is a good working plow by Kellogg. The plane is described as a slide-arm screw-stop plow. The beech arms slide through the body and lock in place with two thumbscrews. It's an effective and easy adjusting mechanisim. The plane is in good condition, having seen lots of use, but still with lots of life in it. There is wear, and dings and scratches, and a few chips, but no defects that cause any problems in use. The wedge finial is sheared, but there it's purely cosmetic, the wedge itself is unharmed and the irons are held tight. The plane comes with a set of six bits: Five by I. Sorby in sizes 2 through 6, and a single Butcher No. 1. That should give you all cutting widths from 1/8 to 7/16. All blades are in good usable condition. The plane works well as-is, as you can see in the photos. A good, working plow plane.

Excellent British Wedge-Arm Plow Plane.
This plow is unmarked but clearly British and obviously a high-end tool. It has a beech body, arms and fence. The arms have brass caps and double boxwood wedges to hold the caps on. The large steel depth stop is regulated with the brass thubmscrew on top of the body and is locked in place with a steel screw. The brass escutcheon that surrounds the locking screw is beautifully shaped with a cove and gothic bead profile. The skate is attached to the arms with screws, these too housed in brass escutcheons. The body is in very good condition overall with sings of use but no damage. The plane comes with a set of six matching bits made by Butcher. The bits are size 1/8, 3/16, 1/4, 3/8, 1/2, and 9/16. The bits are all in excellent condition most with freshly ground bevels. The plane works quite well as you can see in the photos. The wedges adjust easily and keep the fence held securely. It's a beautiful working plow plane.

Complete Half Set of Hollows and Rounds by Varvill.
This is the best complete set of hollows and rounds that I have come across. They were made by Varvill and Sons in York between 1889-1904. They are stamped with the Varvill Ebor Works mark along with the hardware merchant G.P. Preston's mark. The planes all have blades bedded at 55 degrees, ideal for hardwoods. They are also slightly skewed at about 10 degrees. The heels of the planes are stamped "skew" accordingly. The mouths on all of the planes are tight with the planes that saw the least use exceptionally tight almost to the point of absurdity. The irons are all in excellent condition with no rust or pitting. The irons match the sole profiles well and most are sharp and require just a light honing. They are in such good shape that I was able to pick out to and start using them right away on a test molding. The planes all have some bit of patina from age and light use. The set was long held in a collection and all had tags affixed to the escapement side near the toe. The tags left a

Rosewood Plow Plane by E.P. Nutting, Amherst, MA.
This plow plane was made by Edward Porter Nutting in South Amherst, Ma. According to AWP-IV, nutting worked on his own from 1852-57. He also worked as a subcontractor for his father Ebenezer's plane business. The EP Nutting mark is very rare, rating (***) in AWP-IV. This is a high-end plow plane and would have held a place of honor in a cabinetmaker's tool kit at the time. The plane body and fence are made from dense, dark rosewood. The ams, wedge, washers, and nuts are made of boxwood. The plane is in very good condition overall with minimal damage. The body is excellent with no chips or cracks. The depths top is tight but moves freely. The tote has a long horn with no damage at all. The fence shows minor wear. The arms have some chipping, but nothing that will affect it being used at all. There is only one small chip anywhere near the fence (where you will use it the most) and the fence is still firmly held in place with no play even when the washer is right over the chip. The fence

Matched Pair of 1/2in Tongue and Groove Planes by Summers Varvill.
Summers Varvill was a member of the Varvill family of planemakers who worked in york from ca. 1793-1904. According to Goodman this mark was used by Varvill from 1840-67. This pair of planes cuts a tongue and groove joint centered on 1/2in thick stock. The planes have been used some, and have the owner's hand prints preserved in old tallow to prove it. They aren't grungy, just dark with an honest patina of age and use. The blades are in good shape and should sharpen up easily. The tongue plane has the circular escapement that Varvill planes seemed to use exclusively. They are a good working pair of T&G planes.

Three Complex Molding Planes by Wm. Ross, Baltimore.
These three planes came from the same collection so I though I'd try to keep them together a little longer. The planes were made by William C Ross, a Baltimore planemaker who worked from 1849-69. From 1862-66 he worked in the 44 Light St. location, from 1867-69 at 37 Light St. These three planes all have the Light St. location, either 37 or 44. In descending order: Curvy quirk Ogee: 5/16 dep by 7/8in wide. Body is near perfect with very little wear. Boxing is perfect. The wedge is a replacement, the iron is clean but needs to be reground to match the sole better. Excellent project plane. Next: 1 1/2in Quirk ogee with bevel. body has dings and scratches. The boxing is straight and complete. The wedge is a good fitting replacement. The blade has pitting. Finally, a 3/4in quirk ogee with bevel. The body and boxing are in very good condition with no damage. The blade is very clean and matches the sole well.

It's a huge profile suited for large scale architectural work or large interior moldings. It's a massive plane to hold. The body has an honest patina. The boxing is in decent shape- the front piece is nudged forward a bit to compensate for a chip out of te mouth area, a well-done work-around. The blade is good with scattered pinprick pitting. It will be usable, with a little bit of work on the blade.

Very Early, Wide Quirk Ogee Molding Plane.
This plane is unmarked but clearly an early plane, likely dating to the 18th century. If I had to guess I'd say it's British. It is made of beech. The body has extraordinarily wide, flat chamfers along the hand hold. The gouge cuts at the transition are precise and bold. There is a small molded ovolo along the edge of the escapement side- a nice touch. All in all I think it's a classic example of the design and beauty of an 18th century molding plane. The plane is in good condition overall. It's certainly usable- the boxing is straight and complete and the blad eis remarkably clean with no pitting. Neither the plane nor the blade are marked. There are a couple of minor reapirs to the body- there was a check along the non-escapement side from the corner of the mouth through the fence which was repaired with a screw and a small check in the corve of the ogee right at the nose of the plane that was repaired. Neither repair should affect use. The plane itself has a nice dark patina from ag

Nice Double-Iron Quirk Ogee and Bevel by Malloch, Perth.
This is a nice small cabinet-scale quirk ogee and bevel molding plane. The profile measures about 1in wide by 1/2in deep. It is marked 1/2in on the heel. The plane has two irons with one escapement on each side of the plane. The two irons serves an important purpose- one iron cuts the quirk ogee, the other the bevel. When used on the edge of a board the bevel portion of the profile is going to remove the most wood, thus doing the most work and wearing the fastest. Making this area a separate blade makes it much easier for the user- rather than regrinding the entire curved profile, you just need to touch-up the flat blade that cuts the bevel. It's a lot more labor to make this plane with two irons, and would have been much more expensive to purchase, but I think it's a great idea. The plane is in good condition overall, having seen much use. It's still absolutely usable. The boxing is straight and intact. The blades are in excellent shape- sharp and clean with no pitting and properly gr

This one is the exception- the boxing is dead straight with no variation and is also level across the length of the sole. The blade is in excellent condition as well. The body is clean with the only flaw being a couple of old worm holes. It was made by A. Mathieson & Sons in Glasgow.It will tune up easily and be a good working center bead in a great size.

Stepped Pair of Quirk Ovolo and Astragal Molders.
These two molding planes were made by different makers but shared two common owners and have remained together over almost 200 years. The planes both cut a nice quirk ovolo and astragal profile. Both have seen a good amount of use but are stil in working condition. The smaller plane was made by R. hardy in Hull ca. 1820-26 according to Goodman. The plane cuts the profile approx. 1in wide by 5/8in deep. The larger plane was made by John Green in London anywhere from the mid-18th century to the early 19th century but it's more likely to come from the latter part of that period based on the plane's characteristics- it just does not look like an 18th century plane. The I. Green plane cuts a profile 1 /18in wide by 3/4in deep. It is in very good condition all around with no damage to the body, good double boxing, and a very clean and still fairly sharp blade. The Hardy plane is in similar condition to the first with an even better blade. Both planes have middle pitch (55 degree bedding angl

The mouth is open more than I'd like to see, but it won't prevent it from working well so long as you choose your stock with care. This wouldn't be the plane it use on figured maple or cherry but it should work quite well on straight-grained stock.

The planes are in very good usable condition with minimal wear. The bodies are nice and clean with no damage. The blades are both sharp with no pitting. It will require a trivial amount of work to have them up and running perfectly. The planes cut a tongue and groove joint centered on 7/8in stock but will work on stock +/- 1/8in in either direction. It's a useful size for larger work like tool chests, large case pieces, etc.

Rare Fenced Triple Reed Plane by Watson, Leeds.
This plane was made by one of the members of the Watson planemaking family who worked in Leeds from 1820-51. The plane cuts a triple reed- three 1/8in wide beads. It's in very good condition overall with little or no wear on the body. The blade is in good shape as well with some pin prick pitting, most of which I lapped out while cleaning the back on my 220 grit diamond stone. It is bedded at 55 degrees- middle pitch. The blade profile still matches the sole exactly. The sole is completely boxed, fence and all. The boxing is nearly perfectly straight with a tiny deviation towards the toe. This deviation should fall within the quirks cuts but the blade so it should not be a problem if you choose to use it. The boxing is level across the length. It's a nice example of this hard to find profile.

Exceptional Set of Six Near-Mint Molding Planes- Same Owner.
I'm not sure what to call these- a "set" a "collection". All six planes were owned by one person: a Richard Lord. These planes came from the Colonial Williamsburg collection as part of their deaccession a few years ago. Prior to the sale these tools were said to have been locked away in storage for several decades. All of the planes are in exceptional condition- crisp and near-mint. Five planes are made by Gleave of Manchester, one by Varvill and Son. These planes have always been together and I'd like to keep them together. I'll offer them as a set at a slightly discounted price versus selling them individually. If they don't sell this month I'll consider splitting them up next month. The set consists of the following:

Gleave 3/8in tongue And Groove Pair. These planes are in near mint condition, possibly the nicest molding planes I've ever come across. There are no defects.

Early British Moving Filister by Stothert, Bath.
This plane was made by the Stothert, a family of Bath planemakers who worked from 1784-1857 according to Goodman. This mark likely belongs to George Stothert or his sons John in William ca. 1800-37. The plane is in good condition, though it has seen substantial use over its lifetime. The plane has a 1in maximum width of cut. There are two screws in the fence that run in brass ways to hold the fence in place. The blade is skewed and in very good condition with no pitting. The entire working edge is boxed. The leading corner (which wears the fastest) shows some wear bit is almost entirely intact. The brass depth stop is regulated with a thumbscrew and has a steel sole soldered to it. The wedge is held in place with a wedge. This is design is much preferred to a dovetailed nicker, though more laborintensive to make and thus found only on better planes. The plane's beech body has extensive dings and scratches, and at least three owners' marks. it's seen a lot of use, but still has a lot le

Interesting Large Molding Plane.
This oversized molding plane is unmarked. It has the distinctive wedge shape of a Sandusky plane but the body is completely unmarked . I believe it is made of apple based on the color, density, and ray fleck. . It is certainly not beech It cuts a strange profile- an astragal and deep reverse ogee with a tiny flat at the end. It is meant to be used straight up and down, with no spring at all. The blade is in fair condition with some scattered pitting here and there. It's an interesting plane for sure.

Strange Grooving PLane by McGlashan, Perth.
This is a strange plane for several reasons. First, it does a single rather strange function. It cuts a groove 1/8in deep 3/16in from the edge of a board. IT's also a small plane measuring only 8in long. The escapement is also on the left side and the fence on the right- "backwards" from the usual layout. It could be a small drawer bottom plane, perhaps something for inlay work. It could also be a planmaker's plane, used for cutting the groove to accept boxing. The plane is well made and the groove profile is fully boxed. An interesting, fully usable molding plane.

Exceptional 3/4in Center Bead by Greenfield.
This plane is the exception to the rule- it's a center bead with dead straight, perfect boxing. Almost all center beads I find are warped or twisted. This one has an excellent blade- sharp and perfect with no pitting.. The body has minor dings and scratches but is very good overall. It's a perfect working center bead.

Unmarked 1/2in British Slipped side Bead.
This is a very nice slipped side bead in very good working condition. The plane has owners' marks but no discernable maker's mark. It's clearly British based on the slanted breast and the fact that it's slipped, which is an almost entirely British thing. The plane has perfectly straight boxing with one tight check. It's an especially deep quirk which I really like. The blade is clean with no pitting. It is still pretty sharp but most importantly ground perfectly to meet the sole. You'll need to do some light honing to get it up and running perfectly. It's a nice smaller size for interior moldings, etc.

Exceptional T. Tileston 5/8in Square Rabbet Plane.
Timothy Tileston made planes in Boston, MA from 1802 to the 1860s. This particular mark (the "F" mark in AWP-IV) puts the plane as being made prior to 1840. The plane is in excellent working order. It's exceptional in several ways: first the plane is perfectly usable. The body is nor warped or twisted and the sole is perfectly level. That's a rarity for an American rabbet plane in my experience. The blade is also in excellent working order. It had some light pitting which I easily lapped out on my 220 grit diamond stone in a matter of seconds. With the clean, flat back sharpening will only take a few minutes at most. The mouth is also super tight. One other exceptional feature is the bedding angle of the blade- almost 65 degrees. It's clearly meant for fine work in hard woods. The body is in excellent condition save a smal chip missing right at the nose of the plane right above the maker's mark. It's a very old wound based on the even patina. All in all it's a scarce small square rab

Fully Boxed 1/2in Side Bead by Casey and Co..
This plane was made by Casey & Co. in Auburn ca. 1850. The plane has a fully boxed sole. The blade is clean and fairly sharp. The boxing has a small deviation from perfectly straight, but it's smal enough that the large quirk encompasses the slight curve so it won't matter. A good, usable molding plane in very good condition.

Big Quirk Ogee and Fillet Molding Plane.
This plane cuts an especially nice wide quirk ogee and fillet profile. The profile is 7/8in deep and 2 3/4in wide. The plane is in excellent condition overall. It appears virtually unused. The body is crisp and clean with minimal wear. There is a hole bored towards the nose of the plane which I think is original- it's certainly early and well done. I believe this hole accepts a stick to use as a secondary handle for a helper to pull the plane. This is not uncommon for especially wide planes. The blad eis near perfect and appears unused. It has no pitting at all, and matches the sole exactly. The boxing is perfect. It was made by Bensen & Crannell in Albany, NY. It's an especially nice, usable molding plane.

These were high-end planes selling for $3.75 back in 1868! The planes have beech bodies, totes, and fences. The fences are steel plated to resist wear. The screw arms, nuts, and washers are apple. The nuts and washers are all intact and free of cracks. The srcew arms have just a few minor chips in the threads, but nothing that prevents them from holding at all. They have nice decorative finials. The blades are all in good, usable condition with no pitting. The are perfectly usable and a beautiful pair of planes.

Bailey Tool Co, Woonsocket, RI, Patented No. 9 Circular Plane Plane.
This is a rare plane made by the Bailey Tool Co in Woonsocket, RI. The Bailey Tool Co. was founded in 1872 by Seldon Bailey, unrelated to the more widely known Leonard Bailey of Stanley Fame. The plane was marketed under the "Defiance" brand name and features the BTCo's battle-axe logo on the blade. The cap iron is original, marked with Eckert's April 23, 1867 patent. The plane and frog was patented by DF Williams on Ag 3, 1875. The frog features a very interesting (if you are into cool mechanical gizmos or engineering) worm drive mechanism to adjust the blade depth. This is supposed to be the finest blade adjuster ever invented in terms of blade travel per rotation of the adjusting wheel. Unfortunately these proved too expensive to make and failed to catch on. It's still a fascinating mechanisim to dismantle and play with. The plane is in fair condition. The parts are all original. The cap iron originally had two "ears" which engaged pins in the side of the body. These provided a piv

The blade is very long and perfectly clean with no pitting. The cast iron frame and cap have close to perfect japanning. The lateral and blade adjusters both work smoothly. It's a perfectly usable plane in good working order.

No. 3 Size Small Smooth Plane.
This plane has no maker's mark on it so I suspect it was a Union or Stanley made for a hardware store. The plane has the standard Stanley features except for the twisted lateral adjuster, the two-piece Stanley being a patented design used only on mainline Stanley planes. The tote is interesting- it's bakelite and embossed BofE so it was clearly used in a school shop. The blade is in good shape with no pitting and a good bit of life left. It's a solid small smooth plane to put to work.

Nice Stanley WWII Era No. 4 Smooth Plane.
this plane was made in the WWII era of supply shortages. It was probably made closer to 1941 based on the rosewood handles and bras fittings. The casting is thicker and the bed lacks the frog adjusting screw. The plane is in excellent condition overall. The body is exceptionally clean with no rust or pitting and at least 98% japanning. The knob and tote are in really good shape. with no damage. The original iron had been poorly ground and overheated. It was virtually unusable so I substituted an unused, NOS Stanley blade in its place. It will be an excellent user smooth plane.

This is a proper type 11 with all of the traits you'd expect to see- low knob, small adjusting wheel, three patent dates, and the V logo blade. The plane is in good condition overall.

This saw has a 26in long blade 2 3/8in deep at the toe. The etch is not visible. The nib is present. The plate is almost straight, with a very slight curve to the left along the tooth line. It passes the flex test and this shouldn't cause ant problems. Teeth are either some innovative pattern I don't recognize or just poorly sharpened. It will take a jointing and some work to reestablish them. The beech handle is excellent with minor wear. A good saw after a bit of work on the teeth.

This is a nice small panel saw in decent shape. The blade has a pretty clear etch and the handle has no chips or cracks and most of its original finish. The plate has pinoint pitting scattered and a small tight bend right under the etch. I can feel a slight indentation which is probably what caused it in the first place. It still passes the flex test so the tension is still there. It could be smithed out pretty easily or used as-is, it's really not too bad. The saw is 22in and 9PPI. The teeth are all in really good condition and not terribly dull.

Near-Mint Disston D-8 Panel Saw with Original Paper Sleeve.
This saw was made between 1917-1928 based on the medallion and etch. The saw is in near mint condition. it hasn't been used and has the original factory teeth and no signs of wear. The saw has a crisp, clean blade with a bright etch. The grind mark down the back of the saw which you see in the catalogs is still visible on this saw. The handle has no chips or dings and all of its original finish. There is some minor finish crazing and a faint owner's name written on it. The 20in blade is straight with 11PPI. The back of the blade has some discoloration, I imagine from sitting in the sleeve all these years and trapping a bit of moisture. The original paper sleeve has a full label on it. I've seen a few Disston saws in their sleeves and boxes, but never one from this era. The sleeve does have some wear- it's very old and fragile. It wil be packed carefully for shipping. It's a beautiful saw in top condition. An excellent addition to a saw collection.

Early Holden Patent 24in Rip Saw.
This is a scarce short rip saw made by Wheeler, Madden, and Clemson in Middletown, NY using J. Holden's 6/3/1879 patent for a rip saw handle capable of being held by two hands. This allows the sawyer to use the second hand (this handle is ambidextrous unlike the Disston thumbhole handle) in the sawing action and thus allow you to saw longer with less labor since you are involving many more muscles in the exercise. The saw is in very good condition overall. The plate is straight. It is 24in with 5PPI. The teeth are all in good shape. The etch is very light- all I can really make out is "BOSTON" in big letters- perhaps made for a Boston hardware store. The plate does have some pitting on the front but hardly any toward the tooth line and it's not a big deal on rip saws anyhow. It's a good, usable rip saw in a convenient (and highly desirable) short size.

Uncommon Disston D8 Thumbhole Crosscut Saw.
And now for something completely different. This is a rarity- a 30 in long D8 handsaw with a thumbhole grip handle and a plate with 10PPI corsscut. It's obviously a special order saw for some specialized job that I can't imagine at the moment. Also unusual is the slightly thicker plate than usual- around .042-.046 at the tooth line. It's a small difference but it's noticeable. The saw is in excellent condition overall. The plate is dead straight and just massive- 30in long and a full 3 1/8in deep at the toe. The handle is near perfect with almost 100% original finish. The etch is bright and clear. There is some patina or discoloration on the front but no pitting. I've only seen three or four thumbhole crosscut saws over the years and this is the strangest. A rare saw in great shape.

Unusual Forkstaff Plane by Greenslade.
This plane was made by Greenslade in Bristol and bears their bold maker's mark upon the toe as well as their "Exhibition Medals: London, Dublin, Paris, Melbourne" mark. The plane cuts a 1 3/4in wide arc. The plane itself is only 7 1/2in long. The body is in excellent condition with some wear and obvious signs of use but no faults. The blade is unusual- it's a massive parallel iron with matching cap made by Moulson. It's one of the first bench planes I can remember seeing with a parallel not tapered iron. The 2in wide iron is in excellent condition with lots of life left. In theory you could grind it straight across and wind up with almost 1 1/2in of usable blade left.. if you had a use for a 2in parallel iron.

Gorgeous Horned Wooden Plane.
This plane is absolutely gorgeous and in excellent condition. It is likely Continental in original based on the wood used in the body. I believe it is hornbeam like most European planes, but certainly not beech. The horn is nicely carved with a twist to the left to fit the left hand of the user. The plane has a nice golden patina of age throughout and no damage, just some minor wear marks. The blade is a nice 2in wide single iron by Greaves. It is in excellent condition with a clean back with no pitting. The blade and sole are very slightly curved. This could be used as a hollowing or gutter plane but would also make a nice scrub plane. A gorgeous, useful tool.

The plane is in very good condition, the only exception being a very tight check int he right cheek which is only barely visible and should pose no problems. The blade is in fair condition with some light pitting right at the bevel. A slight back bevel will take care of that.

Beautiful Wooden Router Plane.
Like almost all routers, this one has no maker's mark, just a couple of owner's marks. It was used heavily but well kept and remains in excellent condition with a nice patina of age and use.

The body has a rather unique design and the patina can't be beat.

Unmarked Wooden Compass Plane with Interchangeable Soles.
This plane was likely used by a patternmaker to cut specific radius curves. The plane has a detachable sole which is hels in place with tapered sliding dovetails. There are two soles one marked 10 the other 9. There are two blades as well, and one chipbreaker. A full set of these would have had a half-dozen or more soles and blades. This one is in very good condition with lots of wear from use, but no damage and two good blades. The sole still holds firm without screws or mechanical fasteners, just the tapered sliding dovetail. An interesting artifact of an almost lost trade, and a useable plane as well.

Razee Jack PLane by Anchor Plane Co..
This plane has a 2in wide iron and measures 16in long overall. It has a nice razee style and open handle. The double iron also bears the Anchor Plane Co. mark.

It's seen a lot of use but is still quite usable. The body has the dings and scratches you'd expect but no cracks or chips. The open tote is near perfect. The iron has a lot of life in it. It had some pitting on the back but I was able to lap out virtually all of it near the working edge with just a minute or so on my 220 grit diamond stone. The blade already has a nice camber. It will be an easy one to sharpen. It's a decent, working jack plane.

The iron is bedded at about 34 degrees. It was made by the Baldwin Tool Co. The blade is long with lots of life left and a perfectly clean back with no pitting at all. The mouth is still super tight. The sides of the plane body are parallel and square to the sole. The sole has some checks behind the mouth but these appears stable and none approach the sides.. Otherwise the plane is in very good condition overall and is definitely usable. It's a rare configuration.

Scarce handled Forkstaff Plane by Vance, Baltimore.
This plane is either a forkstaff plane or a large nosing plane- the terminology isn't clear when it gets to this size. The plane cut an arc 1 1/4in wide, large for most nosing planes and smaller than most forkstaff or spar planes I see. This would be a good size for a tool handle perhaps. the plane was made by Willian Vance, one of the eariest planemakers in Baltimore. He worked from 1798-1833 according to AWP-IV. This plane bears the "A" imprint, the rarest of the bunch rating (****) for rarity. The plane has a nice open tote with no damage. The plane is very wlel made with some spectacular beech figure. The single iron is marked "Newbold" and is in excellent condition with no pitting on the back. The fragile short grain in front of the mouth has been repaired on both sides. They are well-executed repairs done with mahogany and certainly very old. The plane is still absolutely usable and looks darn good in a collection.

New York Tool Co. Wooden Jointer Plane.
This is a big 24in long jointer with a 2 3/8in wide blade. It was made by Auburn under the NY Tool Co. name. The plane is in excellent condition. The body has a few minor checks on the ends but the body is crisp and clean with an excellent closed tote. The mouth is still exceptionally tight. The blade is a massive tapered iron 3/16in thick at the business end. It has some light pitting at the edge but some work with the ruler trick will have the iron up in running in no time. It's a great working jointer plane to put to use- better than the vast majority I see out there.

It would be a good plane to convert to a scrub if that's something you are interested in.
