Set of Eight Forstner Bits for a Brace.
This is a rare set of eight Forstner patent bits for a brace. These bits have tapered square tangs that will fit any two jaw chuck. The bits are all in good working order. This bit design allows the user to bore in almost any direction, at any angle, in any direction related to the grain. Since there is no lead screw and the bit rides on its rim, the bit is resistant to following the grain of a board and can easily bore eng grain. It also leaves a nice clean bottom to a hole so the bits can be used to create decoratie moldings. Improper sharpening renders thee bits completely unusable so be wary and don't put any sort of bevel on the outer face. This set includes eight bits in sizes 4, 6, 8, 10, 14, 16, 1 1/8, and 1 1/4. Sets of early Forstner bits are very hard to find in usable condition- this is a good working set of "evens".

Complete Set of Ford Patent Auger Bits.
This is a full set of 13 Ford patent auger bits in size 4-16. Most of the bits are original to the set buy a couple were missing so I replaced them with proper, but slightly differently patinated, replacement bits. The for patent features a single twist to the shank. The bits are forged, not twisted to provide enhanced resistance to twist. The outside of the twist has a much larger surface are than a standard Jennings or Irwin bit, helping it bore straight and true. The design of the twist is such that hte shaving tends to stay close to the center of the twist rather than push out against the hole being bored, thus increasing friction. All this adds up to a bit that bores fast and straight and is capable of boring to its full depth without hesitation. Ford bits aren't terrible common, and they certainly aren't popular today, but back in the late 1800s they were deemed the best all-around, general-purpose bits available by one of the lagest (and I believe most reputable) hardware dealer

U.S.A. . The US Ordnance Dept had braces as required tools in their kids up to and including WWII according to the research I've done. Braces marked for the Ord. Dept. aren't terribly common, but they are out there. 6in Fray ratchet braces and 6in Stanley/Fray X3 braces are the most common of the Ord. Dept marked tools.

This example is in good condition with around 50% original japanning on the pad and handle. The chuck is perfect and has no wear. The pad is nice and tight with no play. I

I have one in my shop and one in my inside tool kit and use both regularly.

Interesting 7in Hewing Hatchet/Axe.
This is a larger hewing hatchet or small hewing axe. The head is 7in but weighs only around 2.5lbs. It can easily be used one or two-handed. One-handed you have two different grips, up by the bit for maximum control, and down towards the foot of the handle for more power. is a very early appearing hewing hatchet head. It has distinct touchmarks that I cannot decipher. The head has a clean, polished back and a fairly sharp bevel.You can't shave with it, but it's more than sharp enough to work well. I spent some time with it outside trimming boards and it performed well in both softer spruce and hard oak. the forge-welded eye apparently had some damage or flaw that was repaired later on with a stick welder. The repair is a good one and it looks completely stable to me. The handle is also a modern addition, though very well done, perfectly stable, and features a nice carved foot at its end. It's a perfectly usable hewing hatchet.

Strangely, the handles spin rather easily, like they were meant to. They are certainly tight to tangs, but they rotate.

A wonderful pair of early planes in excellent user condition.

This plane cuts both sides of a sash bar- the rabbet to hold the glass and the inside molded profile. This plane cuts a flat bevel on the inside and can be adjusted to work stock of various widths. The plane is in excellent condition with nearly perfect blades, no damage to the body, and little wear to the boxing. It's a very nicely made plane with hammer head boxing and brass escutcheons to hold the adjusting screws. It's a nice example in a scarce profile.

Mathieson 1/2in Flat Ovolo.
This is a smaller than usual flat ovolo made by Mathieson in Glasgow. It has seen a god bit of use but is still very good overall. The body is good and clean with no damage, save some hammer marks at the heel. The blade has no pitting but it's been used enough that the bevel needs to be reground before use to make it match the sole. A little bit of work and this will be cutting some nice small ovolos to decorate the edges of case pieces, tables, etc.

3/4in Ovolo by Mathieson.
This is a slightly larger ovolo than normally found- this one is 3/4 in wide and a bit over 3/8in deep. It's an easy plane to use with an extra-long fence to help keep the plane at the right spring angle. The depth stop is also larger than usual. The York Pitch blad is in decent shape with some scattered pitting. The plane body is very clean with no problems. It's a good, usable plane in a very useful profile.

Very nice small 1/2in Quirk Ogee with Bevel by S. Summings.
this is a nice smaller version of this popular profile, cutting a 1in wide by 1/2in deep molding. The plane was made by S. Cummings who worked in MA and RI both on his own and in various partnerships from the late 1820s to the 1870s. The plane is especially well made with a nearly fully boxed profile. The blade does not match the sole exactly- it's generally the same shape, and in good condition, but needs work on the grinder to make it match exactly. It's worth the effort as it's an especially nice plane and profile.

Small 7/8in Quirk Ogee and Astragal by JR Gale, Providence RI.
This plane cuts a nice small 1in wide by 7/8in deep quirk ogee and astragal profile. It's not a very common profile, especially in this small size. It's a very well made plane with both the quirk and the entire astragal completely boxed. The blade has some scattered pitting but not near the edge. It matches the sole profile very well which is surprising for such a complex form. It's a very nice plane that will be usable once sharpened and honed.

DR Barton 7/8in Fenced Casing Plane.
This plane cuts a simple thumbnail profile on the edge of a board. It is designed for 7/8in stock but will work on slightly thinner and thicker stock as well. It's an unusual plane in that it is worked against the face of the board not the edge. It has a fence and depth stop- just hold it vertically and plane until it bottoms out. It will work very well along the grain, useful for a shelf edge or the like, but it probably won't work as well across the grain. The plane is in exceptional condition, excellent to near-mint, with no damage at all and a near-perfect blade.

Nice Mathieson 1/2in Quirk Ogee and Astragal Molding Plane.

The boxing is in very good condition and the sole has a nice tight mouth. The blade has minor pitting that will lap out easily enough- see the photos to get an idea of the extent of the pitting. .

Very good Moving Fillister by R. Carter, Troy NY.
This moving fillister is in very good condition overall and will work well. It has an adjustable fence, depth stop, and a nicker tha twil allow it to quickly cut accurate rabbets both with and across the grain. The plane has a maximum width of cut of 1 1/4in. The boxing is nearly perfect with no wear to the leading corner. The nicker is excellent as well with a nice sideways-leaning wedge shape which will make it very easy to extract and set. I think this is the fist time I've come across this particular nicker style. The blade is in very good condition with no pitting. The fence has two set screws which sit in brass ways. The wedge does have a tight crack in it. I don't think it is in danger of spreading. Overall this is a great user fillister ready to be put back to work. It's one of the better fillisters I've come across recently.

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.

George Burnham worked on his own in Amherst, MA from 1844-53. Prior to that he worked as a partner in other planemaking businesses after he apprenticed under H. Chapin in Hartford. Like other Chapin-trained makers, burnham made excellent planes. This plane is an excellent example of his work. The plane cuts both halves of a sash bar- the square rabbet to hold the glass and a square ovolo on the inside face for decoration. It has absolutely beautiful boxwood nuts and screw-arms to adjust it to accommodate sash stock of various widths. The beech body is nearly perfect. The whole plane has aged to a gorgeous deep gold patina. The blades are nearly perfect. The adjusting nuts move easily. It's an excellent example of this type of plane made by a master.

The grooving plane has a perfectly clean, straight skate. the tongue plane has the typical circular center escapement that Varvill used exclusively on their tongue planes.

It is slightly shorter than usual, with broad,flat chamfers and distinct gouge incisions at the transition of the handhold, all hallmarks of an 18th century plane. It cuts a 3/8in cove.

Rare British Side Rabbet.
This is an unusual and fairly rare form of the wooden side rabbet. This appears to have been an exclusively British pattern. The plane has a beech body and a long steel skate that acts as the sole. There is a 1 1/4in blade mounted at a skewed to the sole and very low angle. Like other side rabbets, this plane can be used to accurately adjust grooves. The benefit to this one is the extreme low angle of the skewed blade and the ability to work in very narrow grooves thanks to the thin skate. Unlike most of these I see, this one has a very nice long iron. It's an unusual and usefule plane

Usable Set of Snipe Bills.
I have come to the conclusion that it is nearly impossible to find a pair of usable vintage snipe bill planes. First, snipes are very rare to find- there are almost no American made planes out there so almost all of the snipes come from the UK. Second, of the very few snipes I see, almost every one has either damaged or warped boxing. The working edge of the snipe's sole is extremely thin so even a slight amount of warp will usually prove to be a fatal flaw. Yes, it's possible to fix the boxing on some of them, but it takes a high degree of skill to do it right. I've seen some pretty pairs of snipes that will never be usable. sell for a small fortune to collectors or unknowing users.. I wish it were otherwise, but that's my experience.

Having said that, I present a very decent set of snipes- not matched, but each in very good condition and both should be perfectly usable. The left hand snipe is marked "J Yates" at the toe, a mrk not listed in any reference I have. The blade is nea

This is an early moving fillister made by TA Mathieson & Co., T.A. being the son of Alex left to run the Stewart's planemaking business in Edinburgh after the 1849 buy-out.

It has a simple screw-lock brass depth stop and wedged nicker. The boxing is in good shape with some wear. It has seen a lot of use based on the hammer marks and wear patterns, but it looks like a good user still. The blade is in very good condition with a good bit of length left and a nice clean back- I quickly lapped the back near the bevel to prove it clean and flat. A decent, usable moving fillister.

Mathieson 5/16in Center Bead.
Finding good center beads is tough.. they are common planes but the center escapement and tight tolerance of the profile make them especially susceptible to warp or twist over time. The best users were made by the British makers who used well-seasoned English beech for their planes. This one was made by A Mathieson and Sons and bears the Glasgow & Edinburgh mark at the toe. The boxing has some wear, and a small chip right at the toe, but it's straight. The blade is excellent- flat and clean with no pitting. It was quickly lapped to 200 grit to prove it flat and clean. It's a good plane, a handy small size, and should be a fine worker.

The sole has no warp or twist at all. It looks like an exceptional skew rabbet to add to your working kit.

Tiny Greenfield 3/16in Center Bead.
This is a small center bead by Greenfield. It is a standard side-escapement plane which is nice because it has kept the sole nice and straight, not allowing to to warp or twist. Not many American side bead survive in usable condition. The body is nice and clean with crisp edges. The blade is full length and perfectly clean on the back with no pitting. There is a chip out of the boxing on the left side right at the throat which is really unfortunate from the standpoint of condition, but won't affect use too much I don't think, especially if you choose the right stock to work with.

Early I. Cox quirk Ovolo and Cove Molding Plane.
John Cox (and presumably his son) worked in Birmingham between 17780-1843 according to Goodman. This looks like an early 19th century plane with its deep gouge cuts at the transition and broad, but not especially flat chamfersa long the hand hold. The profile is gorgeous- a small quirk ovolo and cove. It measures about 5/8in wide and deep. In fact, the hel is stamped 5/8 which makes sense. The boxed quirk is dead straight and the blade is ground precisely to match the sole which amazes me. The blade is also clean and flat, lapped to 200 grit across its back. The plane is pretty dirty overall, with the dings and scratches from 200+ years of banging around. It certainly hasn't seen much use which doesn't surprise me considering the unusual profile. It's perfectly usable, however, and would make a great addition to any working kit or collection of early molding planes.

John Moseley 3/4in Cabinet Pitch Side Bead.
This is a truly exceptional molding plane in close to mint condition. The plane appears to be completely unused and perfect in all aspects. It barely has a mark or scratch despite its 130+ years of existence. This plane was made ca. 1862-80 according the the study of Moseley marks in Goodman's book. I lapped the back of the blade near the bevel on my 220 grit stone to show that it is flat and clean. You might not need a 3/4in bead often, but if you do this is the plane to use. It is truly exceptional.

This is an early Ohio Tool Plane, a no. 44 which cuts a very small 3/8in cove and bead profile. It's a beautiful profile and exceptionally rare to find in this configuration. In fact, the Ohio Tool catalogs i have from the late 1800s and 1900 don't show the profile made in this small a size. The plane is in excellent condition and hasn't seen much use. The body is fairly dark but has no damage at all and barely any dings. The blade is just about perfect with a flat, clean back and all of its original length. Looking at the bevel, i don't think it was ever honed. the sole is dead straight with no warp or twist. It looks like a fantastic user in a very scarce profile.

The wedge fits perfectly. it's a very well made plane- see the detail in and around the ramp where it meets the wedge- much neater and better executed than on most American planes from this era.

This plane once had a maker's mark for sure- it is stamped with the model no. 128 and size 3/8in on the heel, but the toe was sanded, obliterating any mark that was there. The plane cuts a small 3/8in ogee. The heel has some light damage from use so it's tough to see the exact profile from that shot, but it's a nice curvy design. The blade is excellent with a flat, clean back and no pitting. It is bedded at York Pitch. There are obvious signs of use but no major damage. I'd rate it good overall and it should be a fine user.

Exceptional Mathieson 1/2in Cove Molding Plane.
I don't see many molding planes in this condition. This one is almost good enough to be rated near mint, but there are two dings on the non-escapement side of the body. Otherwise the plane is just about how it left the factory. The blade is York pitch and perfect with a polished edge and no pitting. The mouth is incredibly tight. The body is crisp and clean with nice sharp corners. There are no hammer marks. The toe is marked with the Mathieson Glasgow and Edinburgh mark as well as the hardware firm Brookes and Noble. It a perfect working molding plane, cutting a nice 1/2in wide/deep cove. It's about as nice as they come.

Scarce 1/2in Double Side Bead by Geo. Burnham, Amherst, MA.
This plane cuts a bead on each side, ideal when you find yourself working against the grain and have to plane the opposite direction. It cuts a 1/2in bead with a nice deep quirk. The boxing is straight on both sides with just a little chip out of the heel on the right side. Both blades are nice and clean with no pitting. Overall the plane body is quite clean and in very good condition overall. It was made ca. 1844-53 by George Burnham in amherst, MA . It's a perfectly usable plane in an uncommon configuration to survive in this condition,.

Early Mathieson 3/8in Astragal.
This plane bears the plain "MATHIESON" mark which Goodman describes as the earliest mark, probably dating to 1855 or earlier. The plane is in excellent condition considering its age. The body is especially clean and free of damage. The blade is York pitch and pretty clean with very minor pinpoint pitting away from the working edge. The quirk of the astragal is dead straight. It's a perfectly usable plane in a fairly hard to find profile.

Nice Double-Iron Adjustable Sash Molder.
This molding plane has no visible maker's mark at the toe but it does have the model number 105 stamped at the heel. It's in good , usable condition. The boxwood screws and threads are perfect and adjust the width of the plane perfectly. This plane cuts both the molded inside half and the rabbeted outside half of a sash bar. The profile is a 5/8in ovolo on the interior- probably the most common profile used at that time. The blades are both in excellent condition with clean, polished backs lapped to 200 grit. The fence of the molded side of the plane- the part that gets the most wear, has been reinforced with a brass strip to prevent wear. There is a chip missing from the top of the left-hand plane. It's an old wound based on the patina of the missing error, and is a purely cosmetic defect. It will still work very well.

This plane cuts a most unusual, yet appealing, 1in wide by 5/8in deep quirk ogee profile. The ogee is extremely flat, to the point to being nearly straight. Bewley made planes in Leeds from 1885-1847 according to Goodman. The plane is in excellent condition overall. The body is crisp and clean, the boxing perfectly straight. The blade is cabinet pitch while the mouth is extra-tight. The blade has scattered pinpoint pitting which won't be an issue to lap out. It's an especially nice profile on an excellent plane.

Varvilll 5/8in Cabinet Pitch Flat Ogee.
This plane has seen a good deal of use, but remains in very good condition and has lots of use in it still. It cuts a flat 5/8in ovolo, a sash profile that is very useful today as an edge treatment in many types of furniture and casework. The blade is cabinet pitch- 55 degrees, and plane's mouth is still quite tight. The blade is a little short from use, but is perfectly clean with no pitting at all. The body is clean and free of damage. Varvill made excellent planes, and this one will prove to be a good worker.

Good Pair of 7/8in Tongue and Groove Planes by Turner, Sheffield.
These planes were made by Thomas Turner on Queen St. in Sheffield ca. 1871-77 according to Goodman. The planes cut a T&G joint centered on 7/8in stock though they will work on stock 1in or perhaps 5/4 just as easily. The planes have seen extensive use but are not overly worn or damage. Both blades are excellent and the bodies of both planes are clean, if a bit dinged from 140 years of life. The blades are bedded at cabinet pitc- 55 degrees which is unusual. They are a good working pair to put to use.

Exceptional Varvill 1/2in Side Bead Molding Plane.

Unused Cox and Luckman 3/8in Side Bead.
This plane is literally in near mint condition- unused with bardly a blemish on the body, the original factory grind on the blade, and not a speck of rust or pitting. Cox and Luckman worked from 1839-1914 with the & Son mark dating to 1883-on according to Goodman. This plane is very well made- (see the knife edge where the ramp meets the wedge for proof!) and would certainly seem to be in the early part of that range. The plane has an owner's mark, the only evidence it was owned by anyone. It still has the original price penciled in on the heel. The boxing is perfect with a nice deep quirk. The York pitch blade is perfect as well. It would be almost impossible to find a plane in better condition, but don't worry about using it! It was made to cut beads, and it should be used and appreciated.

It deserves to see some work after all these years of waiting.

Scarce Mathieson 3/16in Double Bead.
This is a center escapement double 3/16in center bead molder by Mathieson. The plane is in very good condition overall and is perfectly usable. Most importantly, the boxing is dead straight along all three quirks. That in and of itself is a minor miracle. There are a few tiny chips in the boxing, but nothing that would impact use. The blade is excellent- ground well and showing little use. The plane body has some minor dings and scratches, and some hammer marks at the heel- evidence that the plane was used, but well kept and cared for. It's one of the best double beads I've ever come across, and looks to be an excellent working molding plane.

It's dark but free of pitting. The bevel will need grinding and honing, however. The body is a bit discolored, but there is no damage and it's dead straight with a tight mouth. It will make a good user with a small investment of time in the blade.

This is its original length as evidenced by the Mathies mark on the tow and model no. on the heel. This is the normal size for a drawer bottom type plane. The plane retains most of its original Mathieson decal. It's a useful plane in excellent condition overall.

Excellent Ohio 1in Fenced Casing Plane.
This is an Ohio model no. 43 1/8 fenced casing plane meant to cut a thumbnail profile on 1in wide stock. It was used for casing and other moldings where you work only with the grain. It will work well on table and shelf edges as well. It's an interesting design- the plane is worked using the face of the work, not the edge as reference. The blade is skewed. It's a rather "new" design as far as molding planes are concerned, introduced in the very late 1890s by a few of the larger American makers. It is in excellent condition with no damage, nice crisp edges, and an excellent blade.

Excellent Matched Pair of No. 18 Hollow and Round Molding Planes.
These planes were made by/for Brain-Late Shepley & Co. I can't find this mark in either AWP-IV or Goodman, but I am almost positive they are a British plane made by a better maker. They have slightly skewed blades bedded at York pitch. The deep gouge cuts at the transition of the hand-hold is another clue as to their origin. The planes cut an arc with a radius of 1 1/2in. Both blades are in very good condition. The mouths on both are super tight. The only flaw at all is a tiny chip out of the corner of the mouth on the hollow on the escapement side. Otherwise they are about as nice as they come. They will be a great working pair for larger moldings.

Stanley Bedrock 605C Jack Plane.
To start with, this is a Bedrock for someone who wants to use it, not to add to a collection. It has a couple of flaws that make it unacceptable to collectors but won't affect use one iota. This is a type 1 Bedrock made ca. 1898. The bed still has the "No. 5" and the milled off patent date that is the hallmark of a type 1. The plane retains its original iron which is in very good condition. It has no pitting and most of its original length. These early Bedrocks have the milled flat bed and frog mating areas offering a rock-solid (solid as Bedrock) connection between the two surfaces to minimize any possibility of chatter. This example has two flaws. The first is a small tight crack in the right cheek, caused by a pinpoint indentation. The crack is completely stable and very old based on the wear and patina to the exposed surface. It does not affect the sole at all and won't affect use. The other flaw is that the lever cap should be embossed with the Bedrock logo according to the type s

Exceptional Stanley No. 122 Small Smooth Plane.

The blade is clean on the back with no pitting. This one is in the top 1% of transitionals I've come across. At the time this plane was made, the liberty bell planes were positioned price-wise between cheap wooden planes, more expensive transitionals with the Bailey patent adjuster, and the very expensive all metal planes. If you've wanted to give one a try, or add one to your collection, this is it.

V&B No. 903 Small Smooth Plane.
This is a Vaughan and Bushnell bench plane, an interesting alternative to the usual Stanley planes. This plane has a forged steel body with flat sides like the later Bedrocks. There are many who claim these are aBedrock clones, but they aren't quite the same. The frog does have a nice big, flat mating surface with the body right at the mouth, and two flats along the sides, but it doesn't make as much contact as a Bedrock. Does it really matter? probably not, but it's not a Bedrock. This plane is in very good condition and will certainly make a fine worker. The knob and tote had no damage. Th body has the normal dings and scratches but the japanning is near perfect. All of the adjusters work perfectly. The blade is nice and clean with no pitting at all and nearly all of its original length. It will be a fine small smooth plane to put to work.

The casting is thicker than the pre-war planes giving it slightly more heft. The blade is simply marked "Stanley". It's in excellent shape with a polished back with no pitting. The blade adjusting knob is bakelite, not brass. All of the screws are steel-capped without the usual brass nuts. The body is especially clean and the japanning 99% or better. A fine working jack plane.

Exceptional Stanley No. 2 SW Era Small Smooth Plane.
If you are looking for a no. 2 to put to work, this is the one to buy. If you want a collectable plane to put on a shelf, carry on, this isn't the one for you. This is a SW era plane with the original SW logo blade and SW era decal on the rosewood tote. The plane is exceptionally clean. The rosewood is outstanding in terms of condition and grain. The decal is 80% or so. The japanning is 99% or better. The blade is nearly full length and in perfect working order. The back is clean and has good and clean with no pitting. It has been honed and has nice even scratch marks across its widths to prove its flatness. The blade adjuster works perfectly. The lever cap is excellent, original to the plane, and has no damage. The one flaw is this- at some point a former owner had drilled a hang hole next to to the tote. Its former owner plugged the hole, carefully matched the paint on the bed, and had the sole surface ground dead flat. The patch is barely noticeable in the right light. I've accentua

Stanley No. 27 Transitional heavy Jack Plane.
This is a 15in long plane with a 2 1/in wide iron, not quite big enough to be a fore, but larger than a usual jack. The plane is in very good condition and perfectly usable.

Exceptional Stanley SW Era No. 4 Smooth Plane.
This is an excellent example made during the early SW era judging by the knob, patent date on the bed, the lever cap, and blade. The blade is a slightly earlier "type 11" era blade dating to 1910-18. The plane itself dates to 1925-28 according to the type study. The knob and tote are near perfect with no damage at all. The japanning is close to perfect as well, with just a couple of miniscule chips missing. The body is very clean overall and has no dings or scratches. This has not been cleaned, other than wiping some dust from it. This is an honest, well-kept plane. The adjusters work as expected with no slop. The back of the blade has no pitting at all. It will make an exceptional user smooth plane.

User-Grade Stanley 4 1/2 Heavy Smooth Plane.
This plane is usable for sure, but it has a couple of cosmetic issues. First- the knob and tote are excellent with just a few small dings and a tiny chip out of the top of the tote. There are no cracks in either. The plane is a type 8 ca. 1899-1902. The body has been repainted- a fairly good job of it, if it is a bit shiny. The sides have discoloration and some pitting. There is a chip missing from the right cheek right where it meets the toe of the plane. The blade is a later 19108-1910 logo . it's in really good shape with no pitting at all. The adjusters all work fine. It's not the prettiest, and certainly not a collectable plane, but it will work.

Stanley Pre-WWII No. 4 Smooth Plane.
This is a very good working No. 4 smooth plane. The plane has seen use, enough to eat up about a half-inch of the blade, but was well cared for and remains in very good condition. It has a clean, honest pating from use. It has not been cleaned other than to wipe the dust from it. The knob and tote are complete and near perfect. The blade remains sharp with a very flat, clean back. All of the adjusters work well, moving smoothly and accurately with little play. It think it will be an excellent worker.

The blade is nice and clean with no pitting as you can clearly see in the photos. The slightly thicker castings give it almost 8oz of additional mass over a standard jointer plane of this era. It will make an exceptional user jointer plane.

The plane has the typical beaded front knob, patented lateral adjuster, and the Sargent model number 414/409 cast on the back of the lever cap. It's in very good condition overall and will make an excellent worker. The knob and tote are made of gorgeous rosewood and nearly perfect with no damage. The lateral and blade adjusters work well with no slop. The blade has some discoloration but no pitting on the back. It's a bit thicker than the usual Stanley bench plane blade which is an added plus. It's a good-looking, very useful plane.

Exceptional Stanley Type 11 No. 4 Smooth Plane.
Stanley 4 Type 11 ca. 1910-18. It is truly exceptional- extra-clean, perfect wood, 100% japanning and a perfectly clean blade with no pitting. about 1/4in has been used from the blade, leaving plenty of life, but proving the plane was used a bit. It does have some very minor dings and scratches on the sole and sides, but It's honest and hasn't been cleaned, just as-found. The rosewood knob and toe have no damage at all. The adjusters work smoothly. It's about as nice as they come as far as user planes go.

Nice Stanley No. 4 Smooth Plane.
This is a type 8 dating to 1899-1902 according to the type study. The plane is in excellent condition overall and will make an excellent user. The body has at least 95% japanning with just minor loss in a couple of tiny areas. the knob and tote have no damage. The sole and sides have some patina from 110+ years of life and a few scratches, but it's an honest plane in unrestored condition. The blade has lots of life left and very light, scattered pinpoint pitting that won't be a problem. It's already been lapped to 200 grit and the area nearest the bevel is clean so it will sharpen up really quick. The adjusters all work perfectly. The casting and lever cap both have the B foundry mark. It's a good-looking, useful plane to add to your kit.

Very Early Type 5 Stanley No.4 .
This is a type 5- the first plane Stanley made with the lateral adjuster. It was made ca. 1885-88 according to the type study. It has the slightly earlier arched Stanley logo on the blade so I imagine it would date closed to 1885. The plane is in very good condition overall and will work very well. The knob and tote are excellent- the tote has especially nice rosewood. The japanning is just about gone, with only flecks of it left. The blade is in excellent condition with a good amount of length left and no pitting at all as you see in the photos. The adjusters work well. The sole and sides have some dings and scratches from use and storage, but are otherwise clean and free of any damage or pitting. It's a nice example of this very early Stanley plane.

Marsh M3 Small Smooth Plane.
This is an interesting change from the usual Stanley bench planes. Marsh made planes in Rockford, IL. They made clones of Stanley's planes after Stanley's patents expired. Stanley later acquired the company and continued making planes witht eir name, but I believe this is a pre-buyout plane based on the features. The plane is not a Bedrock clone as you might see written. It's a quality plane for sure, and the bedding surface of the frog, when aligned with the back of the mouth, is much larger than a Stanley Bailey of the same era. The frog has the frog adjusting screw and two-piece lateral adjuster you'd normally see on a Stanley. The tote is differently shaped, though quite nice, and made of excellent rosewood. The body is pretty well patinated, that is to say discolored and missing some japanning. The original blade is a train wreck. It's pitted beyond repair. I'm including it to keep the plane original, but I've substituted a vintage Stanley no. 3 blade in good shape with no pittin

Very Good Stanley SW Era Jack Plane.
This is a ca. 1925-28 type 13 Stanley Sweetheart Jack Plane. It's been used quite a bit, as you can see by the 1in of meat left to the original blade. It was cared for and the 1in of usable blade is in excellent condition with no pitting, a nice polished back, and very sharp bevel. The japanning is 95% or so. The body is clean without rust or pitting. The high knob is excellent- the tote has exceptional grain patterns and a repair to the horn. The repair is very tight- both glued and secured with one neat screw. It's a workman's plane, and the repair is strong. It's ready to go for many more decades.

Exceptional Union No. 5C Jack Plane.
Union made bench planes in New Britain, CT right in Stanley's back yard. They were about the only competition Stanley had in the early 1900s, except for Ohio and Sargent a little later, although even at this point it's recorded that Stanley had a hand in Union's operations. It makes sense since the Union planes were almost exact clones of the Stanley Bailey planes except for the patented lateral and frog adjusters.. Stanley eventually fully acquired Union in 1921. This plane is in exceptional condition- by far the cleanest Union I've seen. The japanning is 100% both the knob and tote have nearly all original finish. There is a tiny nick out of the tote's top corner. The sides and sole are exceptionally clean with no rust or discoloration at all. The cap is in similar condition. The adjusters all work well. The blade is absolutely full length and is clean with no pitting at all. It will be a great jack plane to put to work and should serve well for several generations.

Exceptional Stanley No. 6 Fore Plane.
This is a type 18 made for only about a year after the end of WWII. It has the frog adjuster which wartime planes were missing, but the knob and tote are still wartime black, rosewood being in short supply during the fighting. This could be the best example of a type 18 I've seen. The body has absolutely perfect japanning. The level cap has all of its original shiny nickel. The knob and tote have almost perfect original paint. The blade has the original factory grind and is still perfectly clean. It has the typical zig-zag knurling on the blade adjusting wheel that is typical of planes from this area. The bare aides and sole have only the barest patina from sitting around for 60+ years. They don't get much better than this one.

Stanley No. 7 Type 11 Jointer Plane.
This is a type 11, made during the years 1910-18, though I think this one is closer to 1918 since it has the first of the SW era blades. Otherwise it has all of the type 11 hallmarks: low knob, small adjusting wheel, , non-embossed cap, and three patent dates on the bed. The plane is in excellent working condition overall. The bare sides and sole have an honest patina of age and use. The japanning is at least 95% with only some flakes missing from the extremes of the toe and heel. The rosewood knob and tote are exceptional in terms of color and grain, and complete with no cracks or chips. The blade is in great shape with almost all of its original length and no pitting at all. The only flaw- a hang-hole drilled at the toe. This drives the collectors mad, but it won't affect how the plane works at all. This is a good one, and will prove extremely useful.

Stanley no. 5 Jack PLane.
This is an earlier no. 5, a type 7 ca. 1893-99. The interesting thing about this plane is the aluminium tote. It's not the standard aluminium tote that Stanley sold to trade schools, etc. in the early 1900s. This tote has no marks and perfectly resembles a period correct tote from the late 1800s. It has the much thicker "waist" where the hand hold meets the base that you would expect a plane from this era to have. It's an interesting addition- I haven't seen one of these before. Otherwise the plane is in very good, absolutely usable condition. The body has an overall dark patina, but the japanning is at least 95% and the sole is nice and clean. The knob is in excellent shape except for an owner's stamp. The adjustments are all smooth and the blade is in good shape with lots of life left. It's a good usable jack plane.

The back was lapped clean the first 3/8in or so is flat then there is a slight hollow, and flat after that. There is no pitting. It will sharpen up easily. The adjusters work fine. It will be a good, solid user smooth plane.

The sides, sole, and all exposed metal is clean and crisp. The knob and toe are perfect with no damage and all original finish. The blade is absolutely perfect with no damage, plus it's dead flat and has been lapped to 200 grit. It will sharpen up quickly with little effort. It will make an exceptional user plane or a good addition to a collection. It would be hard to find a better example.

This plane is a type 13 made ca. 1925-28. It has one patent date and no raised ring beneath the tote. The plane is in good, usable condition. It was found crusted with gunk and dirt. I cleaned it up a bit but did not remove the overall dark patina from the sides. Underneath the gunk the plane is actually really nice. The japanning is 98% at least. The rosewood knob and tote are good with just a tiny, tight check at the top horn of the tote the only flaw. The adjusters all work smoothly. The blade is a slightly earlier V logo blade with a nice clean back and no pitting. It could be cleaned further, though it will work very well as-is.

Excellent 21in Turning Saw.
This saw is unmarked but very well made and almost certainly a factory-made product. IT looks to be mad eof beech. The frame is in very good condition with no damage. The handles are nice and tight in the frame. The blade is 21in long. It currently holds a 5/98in wide 5PPI rip blade but you could easily replace it with any width/PPI bandsaw blade. The saw is tensioned by a swivel loop rod with a convenient stud in the middle to turn the threaded rod. It works well but caution must be used as it can easily put enough strain on the frame to crack it. I've seen many such turning saws with cracked arms due to over-tightening. This one will make an excellent worker.

Very Scarce Richardson Turning Saw..
This is a 20in turning saw made by the Richardson Brothers in Newark, NJ. This saw model is featured in their 1890 catalog. It is clearly marked with the Richardson stamp on one arm. It holds a 20in blade. The currently blade is 1/2in wide and 6PPI though you could easily replace it with the width/pitch bandsaw blade of your choice. The frame is in excellent condition with some minor checks the only minor faults. The handles are excellent and perfectly tight. The toggle is nicely shaped and the rigging must be original, or at least many decades old. It looks like it will hold up well, though I can supply you with some modern replacement line if you'd like. It's probably not a bad idea to replace it if you intend to use the saw- keep the original and be safe with new, stronger line. This is a perfectly usable saw and a rare saw marked by a well-known American sawmaker.

Unusual British Router PLane.
This router plane has the form of a coffin smoother but has a circular escapement towards the front and long wings to (presumably) help balance the plane when it is working close to the edge of the board. It is unmarked save a few owners' marks. The plane takes standard plow irons as bits. This one comes with a 1/2in blade though I can substitute any size blade you want. It's a really nice design I think, and rather unique in my experience.

Excellent Handrail Plane by Shiverick and Malcolm.
This is an interesting adjustable plane that was used to shape handrails. It cuts an ogee profile and has an adjustablefence on the sole to regulate the width of cut. This is not a common plane to find today. What makes this one even more unusual is the fact that this is a left-handed plane. I've seen several right-handed examples but never one like this. It makes sense to offer a plane like this in both right- and left-handed versions since it would allow the user to work effectivly on both sides of a rail working with the grain. This plane was made by the Brooklyn, NY planemaking partnership of Shiverick and Malcolm who worked from 1853-64. The plane is in excellent condition with no damage at all, and a lovely patina. The blade is pitched at an incredibly high 60 degrees and it's slightly skewed to allow it to work the hardest woods. The blade is a single iron made by William Ash. It is in very good condition with a sharp bevel and very sparse, light pitting in a couple of places. A

The depth stop has a brass wear plate for added wear resistance. It's a fine, working chamfer plane.

Excellent British Sash Fillister by Moseley, London.
This is a classic British sash fillister- a highly decorated plane used for the simple task of cutting the rabbet that holds the glass on the outside of a sash window.

It is in excellent condition and exhibits all of the high-end features you'd expect to find on this sort of plane. The sole is solid boxwood, attached to the beech body with double dovetail joints. The nicker wedge is held in place with a boxwood wedge. The blade is in excellent condition with no pitting. The arms have brass caps, held on with crossed boxwood wedges. The large barass depth stop is regulated with brass thumbscrew and held in place with a set screw. It has a steel sole peinded to the brass stop for added wear-resistance. It's a gorgeous plane, an excellent example of a high-end British plane, and one that could be used without much more than a quick hone of the blade.

Massive Wooden Smooth/Jack PLane by Kellogg.
This plane was made by J. Kellogg in Amherst, MA. It is a 13in razee style smooth plane, though longer than a typical smoother and shorter than a jack. It has a massive 2 5/8in wide double iron my Humphreysville. The iron is in excellent condition, nearly full length and without pitting. The plane is in excellent condition all-round with a nearly perfect tote. The tote's horn is especially long and fine with no damage at all. It has a nice clean body. The sole has minimal wear and a good mouth. This is such an unusual configuration that I would imagine that it had to have been intended for a specialized purpose. I could envision using it to quickly smooth and polish rails and styles in a production environment- the massive blade could easily smooth the entire width of a normal size rail in one pass. Whatever you choose to use it for, it will work well and is certainly an interesting wooden plane.

Ohio Tool Co. Special Handled 2 1/8in Smooth Plane.
This Ohio smoother has the specially sculpted handle designed to fit the right hand of the user. I believe these were special-oprder planes as they are fairly rare to find today despite the fact that Ohio planes are so common. The gorgeous tote is in excellent condition with no damage. It feels amazing in the hand. The plane also has a sculpted wedge which is something I haven't see before, besides being functional, the carved notches give you a good grip point when you want to remove the wedge. The downside is that the carving has exposed some short grain on the extreme corners of the wedge so be careful when you set the wedge! Hit it dead center. The blade is the usual massive tapered Ohio blade in excellent condition. The body is clean, the mouth is super tight. The only flaw is a repair to the right cheek which had split at some point. The cheek has been glued and pinned and is now perfectly tight. I don't have any reservations about this repair at all. It should make a fantastic s

Unused German Horned Scrub Plane.
This is a great wooden scrub plane to put to work. It has all of the attributed I look for in a scrub- it has a small, light weight body, a narrow blade (this one is 1 3/8in) with a heavy radius, and a comfortable grip for hard use. The scrub is the thickness planer of the hand tool world. This plane will take off thick chips from the high areas of a board much faster, and with much less effort, than a jack or a fore plane converted for use as a scrub. The plane weighs in at barely 2lbs, but has a massive single iron that wont' chatter. With this size blade and bevel radius, it will pull of thick chips and get your stock down to flat in no time. The blade has a stag logo along with "Gebr. Busch, Gus. Sthal"- lots of information out there on this well-known edge tool area in Germany. The toe still has the original ink stamp of the planemaker. This is a great user scrub to put to work.

The blade has the Howland beehive logo on it which I really like. The mouth is open more than I'd prefer, but it will work well on tame woods, and very well as a traditional fore plane which, based on the blade radius and mouth aperture, I imagine it was once used as.
