Four Extra-Long Marples Paring Chisels with Boxwood Handles.
I've had these four matching chisels in my collection for a number of years, always intending to use them some day. That day hasn't come yet and I don't see myself using them anytims soon so it's time to pass them on. These are four exquisite English paring chisels by Wm. Marples and Sons of Sheffield.

All four are flat and polished for the first half to one inch behind the bevel.

Set of 10 Traditional Butcher Firmer Chisels.
These are classic firmer chisels as described in Moxon and others. As in Moxon, these are fitted with the customary triangular handles. These are fairly stout chisels, not as delicate as paring chisels. Moxon describes them as "former" chisels, used to rough down work before the paring chisels is used. I love the handles- all matching white oak with excellent ray fleck and handsome chamfers along the sides and top. The set of ten chisels all feature the Butcher mark and logo with the arrow, encircled B, and maltese cross. The widths included are: 2in, 1 1/2in, 1in, 3/4in, 5/8in, 1/2in, 3/8in, 1/4in, 1/8in, and a 1/8in that has been ground down to a scant 1/16in wide. These are all usable chisels, most sharp and in need of only a light honing to be ready to work. All of the chisels except for te 2in have flat, polished backs anywhere from 1/2in to several inches from the bevel.

This is a huge 16in long 2in wide framing chisel weighing more than 2lbs. It was made by GI Mix. The Mix company is a bit of a mystery, but their tools are found on a fairly regular basis so they must have been a fairly successful maker. From what I've gathered over the years, Mix started out as a spoon and kitchenware maker in or near Yalesville, CT which is near present day Wallingford, CT. Mix got into making edge tools somewhere around 1880-1900. At some point he stopped and his works could have been bought by CE Jennings (likely as they were buying everyone at that time) or perhaps PS&W. Either way, Mix tools are almost always excellent as is this one. It's a massive laminated blade socket chisel win wide with a thick, stout blade.

This chisel is marked R. Lee. K. Roberts lists this maker as Richard Lee in Sheffield, working 1814-21. The chisel is in fair condition. It has a chip out of the bevel that will require you to grind about 1/8in off the end in order to get back to clean steel. After that the back is in superb condition for about 1 1/4in until you hit a patch of pitting. That should give you a few decades of good usable steel though. The handle is well used but in good, solid condition. Put 5 minutes of work into grinding this one and you'll have a great user.

James Swan 2in Tang Paring Chisel.
This chisel has a few issues, but it's usable and wide Swan tang chisels are hard to come by. This one has a 2in wide blade with crisp early swan mark featuring the stylized swan logo. The handle is apple and sized to fit the blade, measuring 13in overall. The problem is that some hack took a hammer or something to the blade and slightly distorted the sides and left some marks in the back. The first 1in or so is good, clean steel that I lapped flat and clean to 220 grit. So you have a good bit of quality Swan steel there to work with before you hit the damaged areas. This should give you a few years or more of use. It's a shame, but there's still a good bit of life left in it.

Set of 13 Irwin Pattern Bits.
This set of bits consists of 9 bits made by "Acrabore". They are also marked "Taylor-Gjede, Made in USA". I have some evidence these were made in the 1950s. These are Irwin pattern bits, with a single twist and single lead screw. These are the best general-purpose auger bits since they will work in virtually any wood from green pine to rock hard dry sugar maple. They bore slower than the Jennings pattern bits, but they won't lose their grip. The set consists of 9 Acrabore bits in excellent working order and four (5/8 and the three smallest) Irwin bits which I included to replace four bits wich were abused beyond repair. The result is a good working set of bits for virtually any application.

It can be used as a normal screwdriver or in either right-hand or left-hand ratchet mode by moving a selector on the shaft. A knurled locking ring holds the spiral shaft in place. This model has the return spring for one-handed operation. IT can be used as a normal screwdriver with the shaft extended and locked for when you need an extra-long reach. It can also be used as a spiral screwdriver to rapidly drive wood and machine screws. This example is in excellent condition. I t has near perfect nickel on the shaft and almost perfect paint on the handle. It comes with three regular screwdriver bits in different sizes. The ratchet action is as smooth as I've seen and the shaft slides easily. This example dates to prior to 1946 when Stanley Acquired NB. Is it an excellent working example.

Interesintg Matched Set of Medical Tools.
These tools were all found together at a local barn sale. The set consists of six graduated outside calipers ranging in size from a tiny 1in to a large 6in caliper. Also included are two early forged hammers, one approx. 20oz, the other 6oz, and a large solid rosewood shaping mallet weighing in at over 40oz. After much research and careful consideration, it is clear that these are the working tools of a medical doctor specializing in reverse phrenology. The set is likely missing a few items- I imagine it would have contained one or two chisels, perhaps a rasp, and maybe a spokeshave or two (shudder to think). Although incomplete, It is an excellent example of the tools used by this obscure and largely forgotten medical specialty.

This drawknife is clearly marked "Wilkinson Cast Steel" with an unusual mark to the left with "W.W.G" in an outline. It's not a mark I've seen before, nor can I find it in the usual sources.

It's celarly hand-forged with file arks on the soft tangs and top and a forge-welded steel bit at the working edge. The blade is in good shape with no pitting, certainly usable.

Nice British Rosewood Mortise Gauge.
This gauge is unmarked but has the classic look of a British gauge in my opinion. The gauge is made of dark rosewood with a nice brass Escutcheon around hte locking screw. The moving pin is adjusted with a screw at the end of the beam. There is a long chip missing from the beam- purely cosmetic, it does not affect how the head moves or locks. Most importantly, the marking point are very long and quite sharp, ready for years of use.

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

It is marked "4" on the heel which corresponds to the depth of the profile in eighths of an inch. The blade is clean and fairly sharp. The boxing is complete and in good condition. The body has a dark patina (probably tallow) but no damage other than the expected dings from over a hundred years of being used and sitting around. The blade is bedded at an extra steep 55 degrees. It's a good, usable molding plane.

Excellent Mathieson 1 1/4in Skew Rabbet.

The body is made of perfectly quartered beech displaying some of the nicest ray fleck I've seen on a molding plane. The sole has minimal wear with a sharp, crisp leading edge. Rabbets are often found used-up and worn-out, since they are capable of both fine and very coarse work.. This one shows careful use and no abuse. It will make an exceptional working rabbet plane.

Big Moving Fillister by Howland, Amherst, Ma.
This is a wide moving fillister with a maximum width of 1 1/2in. It is in very good, usable condition overall. It was made ca. 1852-60 in Amherst, Ma by W.S. Howland.

The brass depth stop is articulated with a thumbscrew and adjusts easily. It locks with aset screw. The body is nice and clean. The only flaws are some chips around the dovetailed nicker. At first I thought this might be a problem but then I noticed how thick the nicker iron is.. It's much thicker than usual- over 1/8in thick. This leaves plenty of meat to grip the dovetailed sides that hold the nicker. The small chips don't affect it at all. The nicker has lots of length left and can be adjusted easily. It's a fine, usable moving fillister.

It also wont become loose over time as some dovetailed nickers will. The working corner is fully boxed with double dovetail boxing. It's a beautiful joint. The lead corner shows minimal wear. The fence can be adjusted up to a maximum of 1in from the edge. The fence is attached with two wood screws which run in brass tracks. The screws grip very well and hold the fence perfectly tight.

All in all it's a great working fillister, one of the best I've had in

Superb Handled Solid Boxwood Plow Plane.
This plane is unmarked and very well made. It is soldi boxwood- the body, arms, fence, nuts, washers. The whole plane has aged to a nice deep gold color. It is in excellent working order and will be a superb plane to put to use. The handled plow is a supremely comfortable plane to use and hold, putting to shame any metallic plane ever made. This one is much heavier than the standard plow made of beech. The plane has a nice long horn on the handle and delicately shaped profiles along the base of the handle, on the bridges, and on the fence. The screw threads are virtually perfect with barely a sliver missing. The nuts and washer screw and unscrew easily and hold the fence perfectly still. The fence is stable as can be. There are a couple flaws- one nut has a tight check, not unusual for boxwood, that I cannot move at all and I have no worries about in the least. Both bridges that connect the screw arms to the fence have checks which have been repaired with glue and are further held in

Strangely, this is not the first center bead I've found with holes like this- I've had at least two others over the years, but only center beads, no other planes have had this modification. I can't explain it. Ugly, but it will work.

Interesting Slanted Rabbet Plane by H. Wells, Northampton MA.
This is an unusual rabbet plane with a skewed iron and a slanted sole. I believe the the plane is purpose built in this style. The mouth is even across the width of the iron. I think that if the plane were a modified rabbet the mouth opening would get wider as the "slant" of the sole moves upward. Also, a normal skew rabbet would have a circular escapement, not the standard side escapement this one has. The plane is 13/16in wide with a 5/8in wide width of cut. It has seen very little use and is in excellent condition. It bears the distinct H. Wells mark with the federal eagle logo. The plane has an even even, deep patina throughout and the blade is sharp an in excellent condition. I can picture this plane being used to tweak sliding dovetail joints, among other uses.

Matched Half Set of Hollows and Rounds by Moseley.
This is a full half-set of eighteen hollows and rounds that have always been together. All of the planes have the same owners' and maker's mark. The planes vary in condition with most rating very good or better, but a few with some issues. Each pair is described in detail below. All of the planes have blades bedded at middel pitch- 55 degrees. The blades are not skewed. The planes bear the "John Moseley & Son, 54-55 Broad St. Bloomsbury, London" mark. This mark dates to 1862-80 according to Goodman. The blades have all been cleaned up to some extent. Only one has any pitting of any consequence near the bevel. Some had scattered pitting that was easily lapped out on a diamond hone. Some of the blades will need work on the grinder to reestablish the bevels, but you won't be lapping out pits for hours. On the whole it's a very good working set of hollows and rounds that should work very well once they are tuned. The set consists of the following pairs of hollows and rounds:

Because of the angle and cut it's not going to work really well on end grain, but it's a great plane and profile to use along shelf edges, table tops, etc. This one is in excellent condition with a perfect blade and no damage anywhere.

Scarce American Sash Plane by Davis & King, New York.
This is a simple 5/8in sash ovolo made by the partnership of Josiah King and Moses Davis sometime prior to 1805 according to AWP-IV. The plane is unusual in that I don't see many American sash molders. It seems that the Americans favored the double-iron combination sash molders/rabbets while the British used the sash fillister and sash molders like this one. The profile is simple and pleasing and would make a nice edge treatment for almost any sort of furniture. The plane is in very good condition overall, the body showing barely a scratch at all. The blade has some minor pitting but nothing too bad. It is bedded at York pitch so it should work well in hardwoods.The mouth is stil quite tight, an indicator that he plane has seen little use.

Set of Five Stepped Side Beads- Same Owner.
These five side bead planes were owned by the same craftsman and have always been together. They share the same owner's mark, a W.N. Case, at heel and toe, as well as similar patina and use marks.

Very Early Quirk Ogee Molding Plane by William Squire.
The maker's mark on the toe of this plane is partially obscured by an owner's mark. I knew it was a very early plane based on teh height, broad, flat chamgers, wedge finial, and the deep gouge cutss at the transition point of the hand hold. I spent a good 20 minutes trying to figure out the mark, the first couple of letters of which I could not make out. Finally it came to me and I found this exact mark in Goodman's book. It was worth it as my assumption was proven- the mark belongs to William Squire who worked ca. 1760 according to Goodman's research. That would make this plane over 250 years old, and it's still completely usable. It cuts a nice curvy quirk ogee 7/8in wide by 1/2in deep. The blade is clean and polished on the back, and is ground nearly perfectly to match the sole. It's still sharp and might need just a honing to be put to work. The body has dings and scratches by no damage. The wedge first perfectly. It's a well-preserved and still completely usable 18th century moldi

This one is no exception. It's a small 1/2in wide by 5/8in deep ogee, a steep, curvy profile in excellent condition overall. The blade is perfectly clean with a polished back and sharp bevel. The blade matches the profile well, though the top of the ogee might have grown a bit long as the leading curve of the profile has worn down. It's a minor annoyance and will require just a bit of grinding and honing to correct. The body shows some light use but is otherwise close to perfect. It has a middle pitch blade bedded at 55 degrees. It's a really nice small profile in a top quality plane.

Set of Four Matched Bead Molding Planes.
These four planes were all made by C. Nurse, one of the better British makers of the 19th century. All four have the same series of owners' marks at the heel and toe and all four are in great condition.

Outstanding Set of Three Stepped Ogee Molding Planes.
This is a great matched stepped set of ogee molding planes in sizes 3/4, 7/8, and 1in. All three planes are in excellent condition and show little use.

All three blades are excellent with no pitting at all. All three planes have York pitch blades. All three planes were made by D. Malloch, Perth. It is an outstanding set of ogee planes in excellent user condition.

3/4in Coming and Going Tongue and Groove Plane.
This molding plane cuts both halves of a tongue and groove joint centered on 3/4in stock. It would also work well for 7/8in stock, but not 5/8. The plane has seen extensive use but it still has some life in it. Both blades are equally worn with about 3/4in of life left . The remaining blade is in good condition with no pitting. both ends show extensive hammer marks which obliterated any sort of maker's mark. The front and rear skates are perfectly aligned. I believe it's a British plane just based on the design and the fact that the irons are bedded higher than normal (the tongue blade is cabinet pitch) . It's a well-used plane with some years in it still.

Stanley No. 129 Transitional Fore Plane.
Transitional hand planes get hardly any love, but I have a fondness for them. They were originally marketed as a compromise in cost between the traditional wooden bench planes that had been in use for hundreds of years and the new fangled metallic planes like the Bailey patent planes. Bailey's planes were great improvements, but they cost 3-5 times as much as a wooden bench plane. The transitionals were in the middle, not as expensive as the all metal planes, but featuring some of the improved adjusters. The Liberty bell planes were an even less expensive line of transitional planes. These were offered without the patented blade and lateral adjusters, instead using a lever-actuated blade adjuster which was less expensive to produce. This one has seen a good bit of work but is still usable. The right corner of the sole had worn down and was replaced with a beech strip leaving a crisp corner. The tote has a near-invisibly repaired crack. The blade has scattered pitting, but is better tha

Wartime Stanley No. 5 Jack Plane.
This is a classic WWII era jack plane. It has all of the substitutions Stanley made due to wartime shortages. It uses hardwood handles, not rosewood. The brass is all gone, replaced with steel and Bakelite. The frog does not have an adjusting screw, and the casting is thicker than the planes of the previous era. The wartime planes are quality tools, however, and the extra mass from the thicker casting works toward your advantage. This example is in very good condition all around. The body is clean with 95% japanning- just a small bit missing from at the toe. The sole has some pitting towards the toe which is almost certainly a casting defect since it's clear to me that this plane was never rusty enough to pit like that. The adjusters all work fine and the knob and tote have no chips or cracks. The blade is in excellent condition with a nice clean, lapped back. It's a fine working jack plane to put to use.

It'es salvageable, but might not be worth the time. If you want a replacement blade with it let me know and I'll include one. If you will replace it with a Hock anyway, it's not a big deal. It's a fine worker, though not the prettiest you'll see.

The blade is exceptional- polished on the back with no pitting and with a very sharp bevel. This era 5 1/2 used a 2 1/4in blade which is hard to come by today.Luckily, this blade is ful-length and in great shape. Both the lever cap and frog are marked "2 1/4".

Exceptional Ohio Tool No. 07 Jointer Plane.
Around the turn of the 20th century there weren't many companies competing with Stanley in the metallic hand plane market. Ohio Tool Co. was one of the few. their line of bench planes closely copied Stanley's without a few of the patented Stanley improvements. One other key difference was the blades- Ohio used massive tapered irons in their planes. This was a selling point that they used in their marketing materials to differentiate themselves from competitors. "See that Iron?" was their slogan. The blades are really thick and do a great job at preventing chatter- something I can attest to. I really enjoy using these Ohio bench planes and find them to be quite capable workers. This one is probably the cleanest I've come across. It has an extra-clean body in original uncleaned condition. The knob and tote retain all of their original faux-rosewood finish. The bed has near perfect japanning. The blade is in outstanding condition and has no pitting at all. It's a big jointer for long bo

Small 20in Panel Saw.
This saw has a partial etch that reads The James *** Saw Mfg Co., Columbus, Ohio." I'm almost positive this is a product of the James Ohlen saw company, an uncommon make to find today, but Ohlen was one of the few saw-makers to survive from the mid-1800s into the 20th century adn avoid the trend toward consolidation. This saw will make a good working handsaw. The apple handle is excellent, if a bit undersized for my hands. The blade is straight and clean. The teeth are currently 8PPI and a rather strange pattern. It's probably best to joint it and re-tooth, perhaps as a panel rip.. It's a gorgeous small saw that will make a good user with a bit of work.

Small, Craftsman-Made Bowsaw.
This is a small bowsaw that takes 9in blades. The arms look like mahogany but it's a bit too porus in my mind. It's also harder and a bit heavier- perhaps some sort of dense mahogany? The stretcher is oak. The handles are in excellent condition. The tightening mechanisim is unique in my experience and works very well The barrel is rotated to take up the threaded rod that stretches between the two arms. This mechanisim can put an extreme amount of tension on the blade and ould probably snap the arms if you put enough force into it. It's a well-made, but unfinished saw still showing gauge marks and some rough areas where the transitions should be smooth. Despite that, it's a good, quality saw that just needs a little finish work.

On one side is a brass thumbscrew that puts tension on the blade. It's a good-looking and very functional tightening mechanisim. The blade is 13in long and in good shape. The arms and stretcher are beech, aged to a deep brown. The handles are some sort of polished tropical hardwood in excellent shape with no damage. It's one of te nicer bow saws I've found.

Unusual Wooden Fore PLane.
This plane is well-made but has no maker's mark and exhibits enough weirdness that I think it was craftsman made. The plane is made from some sort of very dense, close-grained wood with very small ray fleck. I'd say maple but the end grain doesn't look like maple to me. Perhaps hornbeam. The tote and wedge are made from the same material. It has a 2 1/4in double iron made by Underhill Bros., Boston. the iron is a big, thick laminated bit in great shape with no pitting at all on the back. Strangely, the blade is bedded lower than usual, about 40 degrees. This makes for an interesting time inserting and removing it since the tote gets in the way. if you aren't careful and hit the heel too hard to eject the blade, it will hit the tote and break it. Needless to say I found this out the hard way and the tote now has a very tight repair which is nearly invisible from the sides. The plane is in very good, usable condition. The sole is flat with no twist. It's an unusual one.

The right side of the plane has a wooden depth stop along with a nicker blade for working against the grain. The sole is not angled at all, so this essentially works as a large moving fillister.
