Exceptional Matched Triplet of Union SAMSON Socket Firmer Chisels.
this is a great matched set of three chisels made by the Union Hardware Co. in Torrington, CT. The chisels are 3/4in, 1in, and 1 1/2in. All three have matching apple handles in a beautiful pattern. These are very long tools- the biggest is 16in., the next 14in., and smallest 13in. inlength. All three have freshly ground bevels and are very sharp. There is very shallow, pin prick pitting scattered about the backs of all three, but all have had the working areas of the back lapped and polished. I might hone them on a 4k and 8k stone to get them super tuned, a task that will take just a few moments. These will be excellent users without a doubt. This is an exceptional set of edge tools. I acquired them as a set- I'll try to keep them together this month. If they don't sell as a set I'll consider splitting them up next month.

Outstanding Set of Russell Jennings Auger Bits.
I don't usually deal in RJ bits because I think they are vastly overpriced, and not the best choice as a general purpose auger bit. They are fantastic bits of the highest quality, but they won't work in every type of wood like Irwins, Fords, and other bits will. The RJ bits (the most frequently found ones like this set) have a double lead screw that bores very fast and is intended to work in "seasoned woods not extremely gummy or hard" as it says on the box label. They were intended for cabinet makers whose time was money and needed a fast, accurate bit. These bits work well in almost all domestic hardwoods, and will work well in dry softwoods as well. Green wood will clog the lead screw and exceptionally hard woods will cause the larger bits to strip-out since the screw is fast and has less of a grip than a single screw. They excell in dry cherry, walnut, mahogany, etc.
So, with that rant out of the way, here is the best set of RJ bits I've come across in years. The set is matched

PS&W Set of Auger Bits.
This is a set of Peck, Stowe, and Wilcox No. 1 Exc auger bits. These are double twist "improved spur" auger bits that look like Russell Jennings pattern bits, but the lead screw is a single thread and the spurs spurs extend down past the cutters. It's a hard design to describe but the pictures should help. It's a pattern that CE Jennings and others user. The benefit of this design is that the extended spurs give the bits a longer working life as there is more cutter to wear down. This is a complet ematched set of 13 bits. All of the bits match. The smallest couple of bits don't have the improved spur as it would be impossible to implement on that scale. The bits have been used, some more than others, and a few not at all- retaining their original protective coating. All ar ein usable condition though some might need sharpening. The box is in good condition, perfectly sound and secure but with chips and dings from toolbox storage. It's a good working set of bits that should work well in

PS&W No. 8010 SAMSON Brace.
This is one of the best heavy duty braces available- the equal to the Millers Falls Lion though I think the Samson looks a little better with its nickel and cocobolo. This is the 8010B variant. The brace is in very good working order. It has a two-piece ball bearing chuck in excellent working order. The ratchet is smooth. The pad spins freely on ball bearings. Interestingly- the pad was never attached to the quill with screws- the holes are empty! The outer shell is missing its original nickel plating. The handle spins easily. It's a nice example of this top quality brace.

It has machine cut gears packed in grease sealed within the casing. The drill looks bulky but is made mostly of that wonder-metal aluminum which minimizes its weight while maintaining strength. The spindle runs on ball bearings. It features a "saddled" breast plate with a leather strap that is held taut just about the iron plate. The leather strap is embossed with the G-P logo. It's in excellent working order and works smoothly. The gears are selected, or the spindle locked, but means of the knurled collar at the base of the crank arm. I've played around with it a bit and have to agree that it's quite the engineering feat. It's an interesting tool in great shape.

It's a well-made travisher made of some sort of dark domestic wood. The sole is curved in both directions. There is a brass wear plate in front of the blade. The blade is in good shape and look like it will work well. The travisher was cracked at some point, likely due to its dainty size and scale. It was repaired with mechanical fasteners and glue. I tried to snap it with what I think was more force than would be generated in any sort of reasonable use and it did not break. I think it will work. If it fails along this crack send it back and I'll send you a refund.

Rare Cincinnati Tool Co. Circular Shave.
This is a very good working example of this scarce circular spokeshave. It's similar in function to the Millers Falls No. 1 "cigar" shave, though the radius is a little bigger and the blade locking mechanisim is completely different. It's much more like a traditional metallic spokeshave than the Millers-Falls version, and is easier to adjust in my opinion. This is the first example I've come across in working order so I gave it a try out just to see what it's like and I'm really impressed with it. The tool is in very good condition with minor finish loss here and there, and a few dings in the handles. The blade is very clean overall and is sharpened fairly well. It's a very nice example of a rare shave- perfect for a collection or to put to use.

It's a very good example with a nice sharp blade. I used it a bit and it worked very well for me.It's a tricky shave to get the hang of- you need to roll in your hands as it works though the curve in order to keep the attack angle the same. Once you get it down it's an easy tool to use. Sharpening the curved blade is tricky as well- just keep the outside face flat and work the bevel on the inside only. It's a very good working example.

Exceptional Mahogany and Brass 30in Panel Gauge.
This panel gauge is very well made, featuring a lovely brass wear plate at the working end. The plate consists of two pieces, one to mind the tip and a separate piece that holds the marking point.

The rest of the panel gauge is typical- a 30in beam made of deep red mahogany. The head is made of the same material. The keyed dovetail wedge looks like it's made of boxwood. It sets and releases easily without need of a hammer. The beam is marked with the name Max Ott, the Swiss cabinetmaker and tool collector. It's a very nice, usable panel gauge with a unique design.

Tiny 1/4in Ovolo by Gabriel. London.
This plane was made by Gabriel, the well-known London toolmaker and merchant famous for making the wooden planes included in the Seaton chest. This plane was probably made in the earlier part of his operation- Goodman notes that but his earliest planes have oval chamfers along the handhold, including the planes found in the Seaton chest which dates to 1796. This plane has distinct flat chamfers and deep gouge cuts at the transition points. All of Gabriel's maker's marks were the same so it's impossible to date it exactly, but I believe it was made sometime before 1796 at least. The plane cuts a most unusual 1/4in square ovolo. The plane has had an auxiliary fence, almost a shim, added to the original fence. The fence changes the spring angle of the plane, and extends the working area of the fence a bit to make it easier to use. The aftermarket fence was attached with four brass screws so you could easily remove it should you want to return it to original condition. The blade is in good

Excellent 18th Century 5/8in Square Ovolo by Thomas Morse.
This plane was made by Thomas Morse who worked in Stratfors-Upon-Avon ca. 1765-1780. This 230+ year old molding plane is still in absolutely usable condition. The body has some minor wear and some dings and scratches, but it's still dead straight and has no real damage. The blade is nearly perfect with a clean, lapped blade back. The blade needs a small amount of work to make it match the sole- the highest wear area is a bit lower than the rest of the profile which is perfectly normal for this type of plane. It won't take much work to have this very early plane up and running in top condition again.

It needs a bit of work to make it match the profile. The plane is in good condition al around with obvious signs of use but no damage that would cause it to become unusable. It's a functional piece of history.

Exceptional 3/4in Square Reverse Ogee by Cox and Luckman .
This is a very high quality plane made by the birmingham firm of Cox and Lockman. Almost all the planes I've found made by this firm were of the highest quality and this one is no exception. It cuts a reverse ogee or lamb's tongue profile 3/4in wide and 3/4in deep. This plane has a "2" at the heel which would normally indicate a sash plane, but the profile is so deep I have a hard time believing it was intended for use on sash windows. Regardless of its intended purpose, the plane remains in exceptional condition. The York Pitch blade is nearly perfect with a clean, flat back lapped to 200 grit. It matches the sole profile perfectly. The mouth is very tight. The body is crisp and clean. It's an excellent user molding plane in a useful size and profile.

James Howarth 1 1/2in Skew Rabbet.
This is a very good, usable skew rabbet by this Sheffield toolmaker. The plane body is in excellent condition with minimal wear and a very tight mouth. It is not warped or twisted at all- a flaw common in lower quality center escapement planes. The beech stock is exceptionally dense and heavy giving the plane a nice heft. The blade needs a small amount of work- the bevel is slightly off from use and needs to be reground to align it to the sole. The back is reasonably clean with only one patch of very shallow pinpoint pitting that can be lapped easily. It won't be much work to have this plane up in running in no time.

Earyl 18th Century 7/8in Square Ogee by William Madox.
This plane was made by William Madox in London ca. 1748-1776. The plane is older than the United States, which I find amazing. It's a prototypical early British plane with the flat chamfers along the handhold, deep gouge cuts at the corners and even a nice bead added to the transition. It's a gorgeous plane to hold and typifies London planemaking of the time. The plane cuts a 7/8in wide, 7/8in deep square ogee. it's a nice curvy profile. At some point someone added a bit of wood to the fence to make it easier to use. By the patina on the addition, it's a very old modification. This 235+year old plane remains in perfect working order with a very tight mouth and an excellent blade. The blade has no pitting, a fairly sharp bevel, and matches the sole exactly. It's both a piece of history and a working tool.

It's a fixed sash plane that cuts both the rabbet to accept the glass and the molded inside piece at the same time. The plane is also unusual in that the blade is pitched at a very steep 60 degrees.

Exceptional British Shouldering PLane .
Although a lot of folks call this a dovetail plane, It is actually a shouldering plane. This plane has a slanted sole, a brass plate on the working edge, a wedged nicker for working grain and a skewed iron. The plane could be used for cutting the male part of a sliding dovetail joint, with the addition of a fence, but it would not excel at the task. It's a fantastic plane for cleaning up and tweaking a sliding dovetail once it was cut, as well as trimming rabbets, tenons, and working in tight areas that are hard to get to. It's a very versatile plane. The plane is in excellent ready-to-use condition and is perhaps the best example I've come across. The plane was owned by a string of users including Max Ott, The swiss cabinetmaker and tool collector. Like almost all of his tools that I've come across the plane is tuned, set and ready to work. It was made be Eaglesham and Fotheringham in Edinburgh ca. 1879-1882. It's a fantastic working example- hard to find a better one.

Excellent Gabriel Quirk Ogee Molding PLane.
This is an exceptional molding plane made by the prolific and well-documented London planemaker Christopher Gabriel. This firm was in business from 1770-1822 according to Goodman. It's not possible to date the plane further than that as they used the same mark throughout and only the earliest planes have the distinctive flat chamfers. This one is in excellent working order. The blade is bedded at cabinet pitch- 55 degrees. The mouth is very tight and the boxing dead perfect. The blade is perfectly clean on the back. The bevel is very sharp and matches the sole exactly. As-is the plane cuts a 3/4in deep by 3/4in wide quirk ogee. There is a small slip screwed to the sole to move the fence inwards- it could be removed to make the plane cut the profile about 1/4in wider. The plane shows some use, but not much. It will make a fine worker and is an excellent example of this sought-after maker's work.

Excellent Apple Double-Iron Quirk Ogee and Bevel by Wallace. .
The Wallace family made lanes in Dundee and later moved to Montreal in the mid-1800s. This is an exceptional applewood molding plane that cuts a 3/4in deep by 1 1/4in wide quirk ogee and bevel. It uses two irons, one skewed straight iron to cut the bevel and another to cut the quirk ogee. It's a great configuration to use since the area of highest wear- the bevel, can easily be sharpened on its own without having to constantly grind and adjust the ogee profile. Both blades are fairly clean with minor pitting scattered about. The plane is exceptionally dense and hard. It's clearly not beech- probably applewood. There are no checks or damage and only signs of light use. The boxing is dead straight. It's a great user plane in a useful size and an unusual addition to any working kit.

Exceptional, Tiny 1/4in Ogee Molding PLane by W. Dibb, York.

The blade is bedded at cabinet pitch- 55 degrees and the mouth is very tight. The blade has some discoloration but the working area is lapped clean and flat. There is no pitting. It's a perfect working plane in great shape and a most unusual small profile.

Early Quirk Ogee Molding PLane.
This is an early plane with 18th century features- the broad, flat chamfers along the hand hold, bod gouge cuts are the intersections, and a rounded wedge finial. It has a very very light maker's mark at the toe that I have no way to make out, or even guess at. it was found with other British plane so I'd assume it was British but I can't be sure. The plane has a removable slip along the fence or perhaps it's a replacement or additional fence to make up for one that was worn, but the plane doesn't have other signs of use to back that up The profile actually has a small fillet at the top so the top of the ogee is sunk below the surface of the board, unless you grind back the fillet on the blade and allow that part of the sole to act as a depth stop.. See the photos of the blade shape to get a better idea. It's a good usable early molding plane with some peculiarities about it.

Early and Excellent Quirk Ovolo and Cove Molding Plane.
This plane cuts a very pleasing quirk ovolo and cove profile measuring 1in wide and 7.8in deep. The plane has no discernible maker's mark at the toe- several owner's marks and one that might be a maker's mark but I can't find a reference for it. The plane was found with the Gabriel I have listed earlier and bears the same WD owner's brand. It could be a Gabriel, but definitely dates to the late 18th century or very early 19t century based on the features. The plane is in very good, well-used condition. The body has dings and scratches but the blade is excellent with no pitting. The boxing is nice and straight. It's a very early, completely usable with a nice profile.

The only flaw is a small chip out of the heel of the grooving plane- damage that was repaired with glue and is quite tight now- just watch where you hit it with a hammer. They are a great working pair of planes.

Exceptional Matched Pair of 5/8in Tongue and Groove Planes by Varvill.
Varvill was a prolific maker of high quality molding planes working in York in the mid-late 1800s.

These planes are crisp and clean with no damage and the typical Varvill attention to detail. The tongue plane has their trademark circular center escapement. Both blades are excellent with no pitting and appear virtually unused. the planes have at least three owners' marks on them but clearly haven't been put to much use.

Interesting Double-Iron 3/4in Hollow by Tollman, MA.
This is a most unusual double-iron hollow molding plane by J R Tollman who worked in the Boston area (Scituate) ca. 1818-1860s according to AWP-IV. Tolman mainly made shipbuilder's planes and was noted for making double iron molding planes like this one. The plane is very striking in appearance with the thick double iron and extra-wide ramp to allow for the cap iron. The plane cuts a 3/4in wide hollow. It is slightly relieved on the escapement side much like a table plane but not to that extent. It's likely a specialized shipbuilder's plane. It's in excellent condition overall and is completely usable.

Interesting 1/2in Side Bead with Nicker.
This plane was made by Sandusky, a planemaker known for making "special" molding planes to suit specific purposes. Most of the non-standard planes of theirs I've come across were marked" special" across the heel- this one is not. It's a standard 1/2in side bead except for the fact that there is a nicker embedded in the boxed quirk. This would allow it to cut a bead across the grain without worrying about tear-out on the face of the board. The plane is in excellent condition overall. The blade is full-length, clean, and sharp. It's the first plane I've seen like this- it certainly seems like a good idea.

The mouth is very tight all around and the center escapement precise and well-executed. It's clearly a plane made by a high-end shop. The blade is clean and in very good condition. It could be used to round-over stock with very difficult grain, perhaps gunstocks, though it's much bigger than most of those planes I see. It's an interesting plane in excellent condition.

It's the correct width just a bit longer and it has the notch that the 45s use at the top. It could be ground to length easily enough if that bothers you. Both blades are in excellent condition with no pitting. This plane has an S casting mark so it was likely made in the 1890s. It looks like a fine useable example of this handy plane

The sides and sole have a very dark patina. It could be cleaned up if you want, but it will take a good bit of labor and won't improve the performance any. The japanning is nearly perfect. It's not the prettiest on the outside, but it will work well.

This is a WWII era 5 1/2 made in the first quarter of 1947 according to the date stamp on the blade. It has some wartime economies but not all. It has brass screws but a bakelite wheel. The frog does have an adjusting screw. To me the casting does seem thicker, as some wartime planes are noted to be, giving the big jack plane a noticeable heft The knob and tote are hardwood, not rosewood. This model uses the 2 3/8in wide blade which is easy to find replacements for if needed. The plane is imperfect- literally. It is stamped "imperfec ton the right cheek.

Very Good WWII Era Stanley No. 4 Smooth Plane.
This is a classic Stanley WWII era smooth plane with all of the wartime compromises you'd expect to see including one interesting change from the norm.

This plane is a type 11/12 based on the three patent dates on the bed, high knob, SW blade, and the blank lever cap. The plane is very clean and the japanning perfect- almost too perfectly clean.

The handle has some paint splotches, and it's not the prettiest, but it's in good condition with no damage. It has a thick, heavy brass back as heavy as any I've ever seen. It is currently 14PPI crosscut, but it could use some toothwork as it's not terribly sharp and there are some teeth that need fixing.

Excellent Tyzak & Turner 12in Rip Tenon Saw.
This is one of the first vintage backsaws I've found with rip teeth on it. This one looks to have been recently sharpened, or perhaps even retoothed. The plate is 12in long and 3 1/4in deep under the spine. The teeth are sharp- sharp enough to cut very well and track straight. I made several test cuts with it and I was satisfied. It's not the sharpest saw I've ever used, but it cuts quite well. The brass back has a huge Tyzak and Turner stamp with the Nonpareil elephant stamp and the No. 120 model no. The handle has some finish loss but no damage. It's a fine, working tenon saw.

Exceptional Small Jewelers or Fret Saw.
This is a small adjustable fret saw capable of holding blades from 3-6in. It is a pattern I haven't seen before and definitely superior to the more common German saws. This saw is completely unmarked. The mechanisms that clamp the blade are "indexed", for lack of a better term, so they cannot move. The frame has a groove in the top that engages a brass "key" in the locking clamp to prevent the arm from ever rotating. It's hard to describe, but it's a very well made saw and clearly has some age to it. I'll include a variety of saw blades with the saw. It can be used for metal or wood depending on the blade you choose.

26in Wooden Jointer by Kellogg.
This is a long, extra-heavy jointer by Kellogg. I think the stamp says E. Kellogg, but it's much more likely the stamp is an imperfect mark of J. Kellogg, the prolific Amherst, MA planemaker. This plane has a 2 1/2in wide double iron by Butcher. It has a bold Butcher logo, a full 2in of length left, and a pretty clean back with very minor pitting as seen in the photos. The plane body is in good condition with some wear. It's made of extra-heavy beech and the plane weighs in at over 8.5 pounds despite its short 26in body. It has a flat sole with no twist or warp- it sits flat on my jointer bed without rocking at all. The closed tote is in good shape with a nice long horn. It should be a good worker,

Massive 30in Wooden Jointer by A. & E. Balwin, New York.
This plane was made by the partnership of brothers Austin and Elbridge Baldwin in Albany, NY ca. 1830-41. It is a huge 30in long jointer with the largest iron i've ever seen in a bench plane. It has a 2 7/8in wide double iron made by Starr & Co., a Middlefield, CT maker who the EAIA DAT says operated in the 1840s. The blade has one tiny area of pitting at the edge but is otherwise clean and excellent. A quick back-bevel will have this iron sharp and ready to work in no time. The body of the plane is in decent shape. The top of the pane and the wedge were wiped with some wort of light red paint or stain long ago. It actually looks pretty good, though I'm not about to go and paint all of my planes. The closed tote is in excellent condition. The sole is flat enough to sit without any wobble on my jointer table. All told the plane weighs in at over 9.5 lbs. There are dings and scratches, and obvious signs of use, but it remains a completely usable plane.

H&W was a St. Louis plane maker/dealer that operated between 1850-60. This plane is in good working order. It shows signs of use and has some wear, but is still perfectly usable. The plane comes equipped with a single iron which is unusual. It was never fitted for a double iron, not having a cut-out int he bed or wedge for a screw. The iron is a 2in tapered blade by Butcher. It's in fair condition with pitting on the back. It could take a back-bevel and should work well, or you could easily replace it with any sort of 2in iron. The tote is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks.

Outstanding Adjustable Compass Plane by Varvill.
I'll say it again- Varvill made some of the highest quality wooden planes in all of 19th century England. This plane is no exception- it's an adjustable compass plane with a rather strange and ingenious mechanisim for regulating the radius the plane can work. It has a rounded steel stop that is set in to the sole. The stop can be ejected/retracted by means of a thumbscrew in the toe of the plane. I've never seen this feature before and a little digging with Google doesn't turn up any matches either. The entire assembly is nicely fitted and works precisely. The plane is in excellent condition all around. The 2in blade is in goos shape with minor discoloration on the back. The wooden body is crisp and clean with no damage. There is minor wear on the sole. It's a fascinating, usable wooden plane made by the best.

Exceptional Greenfield Backing Out Jack Plane.
This is a most unusual wooden plane- it is 16in long with a razee style body. It has a closed tote and lignum start. The plane has an ever so slight radius to the sole. The blade and chip breaker have a matching radius. The plane was made this way without a doubt. It's a much more subtle curve than a gutter or pump plane, and the iron is wider than either of these. Whelan describes this plane as a "backing out jack" used by shipwrights to slightly hollow planks that had to fit snugly against the curved frames of hulls. The plane is in excellent condition overall and has no damage and very few sings or scratches anywhere. The massive tapered blade was made by Moulson. It's in excellent condition with a polished, clean back. The tote is perfect. It's a gorgeous plane and an excellent example of a rare specializes ship plane.

Excellent Wooden Router Plane.
At first I thought this was a user-made tool but after looking at it closer I have my doubts. It's very well made and incorporates custom-made parts specific for this plane. The blade is a simple 1/4in square bar of steel with a bend and bevel at the end. The blade is held captive in a stud. It runs along a brass way inset into the plane body. There is a brass thumbscrew that pulls the stud toward the body, holding the blade tight. It's easier to show in photos than describe. It's a very slick retention system and looks more like something manufactured than created by a craftsman. Perhaps the hardware was sold as a kit to be fitted into the plane body of the owner's choice. The body is beech, also well-executed and in very good condition. It's a great usable router plane in a very interesting form.

There is a check in the right cheek which has been repaired and is solid. It's a good, usable bench plane.

Well-Made Small Bullnose Plane.
This is a small bullnose plane with a small 1 1/4in wide single iron. It was most likely converted to a bullnose from a small smoother, but the plane is in great shape so I doubt it was due to any damage. It has gouge marks at the front of the plane, just like a full sized coffin smoother would. These gouge marks have the same patina as the rest of the plane, which points to this being an old conversion, or perhaps its original configuration. The plane's nose is reinforced with a brass plate. The mouth is ultra-tight and the blade in good shap ewith minor discoloration. The wedge fits well and the whole thing measures only 3 1/4in long so it's ideal for fine work. It's an unusual and completely functional small wooden plane.

22in Wooden Jointer.

The mouth is tight enough and the closed tot is near perfect. The blade that came with it has enough pitting to the point that it's probably not worth lapping. I will include a better, cleaner, full-length blade that fits properly. This plane is marker Tertius Keen & Co. which was a mark Mathieson used. It's a perfectly usable jointer.
