If you want a wide paring chisel to use, this is the one. It measures over 13in in length. I quickly lapped the first inch or so of the back so you can see that it's flat and free of pitting.

The handle is obviously not original, but it's very well made. It has a distinct sap/heartwood delineation and looks like some sort of rosewood. Perhaps Lignum? It should make a fantastic worker.

Collection of 10 Vintage Turning Tools.
I always pick up vintage turning tools when I find them in good condition. I'll put them aside and sell them all together when they reach a certain point. Here's a group of 10 that all should work well. From top to bottom in the first photo:
Massive 2in Unmarked Spindle Gouge
Massive 1 1/4in Skew Chisel
PS&W 1/2in Skew
DR Barton 1/2in Round Nose Scraper
DR Barton 1/2in Square Scraper

Marples 1/4in Skew Chisel
Marples short 1in skew chisel
Marples 1/16in Parting Tool (excellent condition)
Marples 1/2in Round Nose Scraper.
Bonus- since snapping those photos I found two more that I'll include as well: A long 3/8in skew, and a Craftsman 3/8in round scraper. All should be usable after a sharpening. These are likely all vintage tool steel, and not modern HSS, so take care when grinding them, and don't burn them up on the lathe. These would be good candidates for a treadle lathe.

This plane cuts a nice small, steep 5/8in wide by 1/2in deep ovolo. It is in very good condition overall and looks like it was used recently. The blade is clean, honed, and tuned. The body is nice and crisp. Unfortunately there is a deep owner's mark that completely overwrites the original maker's mark on the toe. You can see the zig-zag outline of the original mark, and one small "s" I believe. Perhaps you can make out more. I believe the plane is an early british plane. The blade is bedded at cabinet pitch, the mouth is quite tight. There is evidence of an auxiliary depth stop added to the plane's side, a good idea to cut consistent depth profiles. It looks like a great user plane to me.

Very Interesting Double-Iron Cove and Ogee Molder by Mathieson.
This plane cuts a most unusual profile with a small cove at the top and a square ogee. Overall it measures 5/8in by 5/8in. The profile is cut by two irons- one cuts the cove, the other the ogee. This makes it much easier to maintain the blade since the ogee blade will see more wear than the cove blade. The plane is in very good condition overall. It's seen some use, and has a few hammer marks. The blades are excellent- both clean and fine with no pitting and both match the sole profile very well. It's an unusual profile and configuration in great shape. The profile it cuts is very attractive. It should make a great user.

I've read that it was supposed to cut two putty rabbets at once, but that's just speculation. This example was made byMathieson in Glasgow. It has its original Mathieson iron in excellent condition. The plane is in very good condition with only minor wear and no damage. It was clearly used, and has a couple of owners' marks, so it clearly had some useful place in shop. It's a nice example of this interesting plane.

Interesting Matched Pair of No. 8 Hollow and Round Molding Planes by Pond, New Haven.
These planes were made by W.H. Pond in New Haven, CT. Pond worked on his own and in various partnerships from 1844-90 Both planes retain most of their original paper labels with the dealer's name. These particular planes were sold by the J. E. Bassett & Co Hardware Store located at 236 Chapel Street in New Haven. The Bassett Company dates back as early as 1784, changing ownership several times until John E. Bassett came into the firm in 1885. For several decades the firm operated as Bassett & Jarvis, still on Chapel Street. The 265 Chapel St. address seems to date to the 1860s, based on an advertisement I found in the 1865 Yale Courant publication. Further searching dug up a detailed history of the company and interview with Mr. Bassett This Item Has Been Sold

Exceptional W. Parkes 1/4in Reed and Follow.
This is the plane I mentioned on my blog a few months ago. It's a 1/4in reed and follow made sometime in the first half of the 19th century in Birmingham by William Parkes & Co. The plane acts at first as a standard side bead with a fence and depth stop. The fence can then be removed to reveal a second reed profile on the sole, this one without a cutter. This non-cutting profile acts as a guide and rides in the first bead, allowing you to cut multiple reeds exactly in parallel to the first. It's a scarce profile to find. This one is in excellent working order. I honed the blade a bit and it cut reed after reed leaving behind a perfectly smooth surface. You can see a photo of the plane in use in the linked pictures. The original flat-bottom screws had significant rust on them and I could not guarantee that they would hold should you want to use the plane. I've substituted some vintage slotted screws for the originals. I will include the original screws along with the plane for the sake

British Moving Fillister by Routledge, Birmingham.
This is a good, usable fillister mad eby Routledge with the "Late Thomas" 23 Bull St.stamp on the toe dating it to 1876-81 according to Godman. The plane has one flaw which prevents me from calling it "excellent". It has a dovetailed nicker. There is a chip out of one of the sides of the dovetail between the nicker and depth stop. There is still enough meat left in the walls of the tapered dovetail to allow the nicker to hold tight. I've tested setting and withdrawing it and it works fine. Still, it's a decent flaw and must be noted. Aside from that there are no other problems. The blade is excellent with a sharp bevel and no damage or pitting at all. The fence moves easily and locks securely. The depth stop is fastened with a set screw and works just fine. It should be a good worker and it's a bargain compared to other usable fillisters.

Outstanding C. Fuller, Boston Rounding/Spar Plane.
This plane is in exceptional condition with barely any dings or blemishes despite its more than 140 years of age. According to AWP-IV, Charles Fuller worked in Boston from 1836-87 and at the Pine Street location indicated in the maker's mark from 1867-72. The plane has no damage, and is beautifully made. It cuts a 1 1/2in wide hollow profile. The blade and body were originally intended to cut this profile- the breast is cut to the same radius ensuring an even mouth all around- a tricky thing to do. The cap iron is also properly fitted to the blade's curve. The blade has a bold maker's mark" A.L. Whitting & Co, Worcester, MA" with a bench plane logo. The EAIA DAT Lists Whitting & Co as operating in Worcester, MA from 1866-75 which overlaps the plane's date of manufacture well. It's an outstanding blade with a massive tapered working end, and a thick cap iron marked "Steel". This is about as nice a working plane as you could hope to find- ideal for working curves for long tool handles, c

Shapely 18th Century Ogee and Bead Molding Plane by Mutter, London.
This plane was made by George Mutter who worked in London ca. 1766-1799 according to Goodman. It's a gorgeous plane in both the way it was made and the profile it cuts. The plane has all of the hallmarks of a 18th century British plane including the flat chamfers along the handhold, the deep incised gouge cuts at the transition points between the hand hold and body, and the slight hollow molded above the body found on better planes- see the head-on photo to see what I mean. The wedge has Mutter's typical rounded finial. The plane cuts a very nice 1/4in wide byu 1in deep ogee and bead profile. The plane has been used a lot. The sole has marks from where an auxiliary fence was added, and from where a stop was added to prevent the bead from cutting, turing int into a simple ogee molder. The boxing is still in great shape. The blade is in good shape as well- bedded at York pitch, reasonably sharp and clean, and ground to match the profile very well. It's great early molder by a wel-docume

Spectacular Greenslade 1 1./2in Reverse Ogee Molder.
OK, "spectacular" is a bit hyperbolic, but this is really one of the best molders I've come across. If the plane didn't have a few hammer marks at the heel I'd swear it was never used. It was made by Greenlsade in Bristol sometime ca. 1862-65. It has their "Exhibition Medal 1862" stamp at the toe, but not the later 1865 mark, nor any of the subsequent medals they won. The plane is close to mint, excepting the hammer marks. The corners are crisp, the body virtually perfect. The blade is perfect. It has no pitting at all and is factory new on the back. The bevel has the original grind and matches the sole perfectly. The blade is bedded at cabinet pitch- 55 degrees. It cuts a 1 1/2in wide by 3/4in deep reverse ogee. I' think it would be a useful size and shape for a cornice/capital molding. It's a plane that I'm sorely tempted to keep as molding planes in this condition are very, very rare.

The body is clean, with little sign of use. There are some checks in the toe- typical of American planes, which might close a bit if the plane were cared for and wiped with oil from time to time. Don't soak it in linseed oil. The checks are superficial anyhow- the sole is still straight and free from warp. It will work very well as-is and will benefit from regular use.

Exceptional Sandusky 1in Coming and Going Tongue and Groove Plane.
This plane has seen little, if any use, and remains in excellent working order. It's perfectly clean without a mark or ding. The steel plated skate has no rust. The blades are perfect and unused. This plane cuts both halves of a tongue and groove joint centered on 1in stock. It will work very well for 7/8 and 5/4 as well, but not for 3/4in stock. It's a perfect size for large casework like a tool chest. It will make an exceptional worker.

Interesting Slanted Skew Rabbet Plane by Mathieson.
This plane looks to be all original- the sliding fence along the angled sole has the same overall patina as the plane and the fence fits perfectly. It is attached with slotted screws that run in brass ways. The plane could be used to help tweak or cut the male section of a sliding dovetail, the fence helping to make the joint tight and accurate. I can find no mention of this profile in any of the MAthieson catalogs I have. The blade is in excellent condition with no pitting and the mouth is whisper tight across the entire width of the sole.

Mathieson 1/2in Square Ovolo.
This is a later Mathieson plane with some of the original decal remaining on the escapement side. It cuts a 1/2in suqre ovolo though the plane is marked 5/8in on the back. The blade has some pitting but it's usable with a bit of work. The plane is otherwise in good shape- the sole is straight and there are no chips or cracks.

Exceptional British 5/8in Ovolo.
This is a somewhat flat ovolo measuring 5/8in wide by 1/2in deep- more curvy than the typical flat sash ovolo, but not quite square. It's a beautifully made plane but unmarked. It's certainly British. The mouth is very tight, the blade bedded at cabinet pitch. The blade is sharp and ground perfectly to meet the sole. The body is crisp and clean with a few hammer marks on the heel. It'll make an exceptional user with minimal effort.

Very unusual Fairclough Ovolo Plane.
This plane was made by Fairclough in Liverpool. It cuts a 3/4in square ogee but using the face of the board as a reference, not the edge as usual. The result is a very strange looking plane. The "point" of the blade that would cut the deepest part of the ogee is blunt which makes me think this plane was sized for stock around 5/8 thick. It could be some sort of special-purpose plane, but I don't recall seeing anything like it in Whelan's book. It's a very well-made, quite unusual plane in excellent condition.

Exceptional 1in Side Bead by Ames, Birmingham.
This plane is in near perfect condition. It looks like it did the day it was sold some 120 years ago. It was made by J. AMes in Birmingham who worked from 1886-89 according to Goodman. The plane is beautifully made with double boxing- the boxed fence is a nice, though seldom seen, touch. The blade is perfect. The plane has never been used. All of the corners and edges are crisp and sharp. There are no dings or scratches at all. There are two owners' marks, but that appears to be as far as the owners ever got to using it.

E. Preston, Birmingham, Quirk Ogee and Astragal Molding Plane.
This plane was made by Edward Preston, likely the senior Preston before his son joined in the mid 1800s. This is the same E. Preston who would go on to become one of the top rule, level, and plane makers in England. The plane has all the features of an early 19th century British plane and remains in very good working order. It's seen use for sure, but the plane remains usable today. The cabinet pitch blade is clean and sharp. The boxed quirk is straight and the sole has not warped. The plane body has some dings and scratches, but no chips, cracks, or other damage. The profile is 1 1/2in wide by 3/4in deep. It's a nice curvy, early example by this well-known maker.

Smaller Mathieson Double-Iron Quirk Ogee Bevel Molding Plane.
This is a smaller version of the common casing molding profile, this one 1in wide by just over 1/2in deal with a nice curvy quirked ogee. This is a double iron plane, one iron cutting the ogee, the other the bevel. This makes it much easier to keep the blades sharpened properly, the bevel seeing the most use will wear faster than the ogee. The plane is in very good working order with some signs of use, but perfectly straight boxing and two very clean blades. It's got a nice overall patina from careful use and age, and has evidence of its former owners' hand prints in what is likely tallow on the blade body. It's a nice, usable example of an interesting plane.

18th Century Quirk Ogee and Astragal by. B. Dyson, Tork.
This plane was made by Benjamin Dyson in York. According to Goodman Dyson worked from ca. 1772-91. The profile is 3/4in wide by 1/2in deep. The plane is made of especially dense, heavy beech. The blade is clean and sharp. It will need a bit of tweaking to match the profile if you want to use it, but not too much. The blade is bedded at York pitch. The body has signs of careful use, but is quite clean and has aged to a nice patina and wonderful feel in the hand. It's a nice early example of a 220+ year old plane.

Interesting E. Preston Double Grooving Plane.
This plane cuts two 3/16in wide grooves 1/4in deep 1/4 and 5/8in from the edge of a board. I believe this is a casemaker's plane, used to cut airtight joints to keep dust out of cases. The plane is in excellent condition with a crisp Presotn mark. Te plane is completely usable. It's a nice example of this unusual plane.

Matched Pair of 5/8in Lambs Tongue Sash Planes.
These planes both cut similar 5/8in wide, 3/98in deep lamb's tongue profiles. These are good for molding the edge of a shelf, table top, drawer front, or anywhere you want to break a sharp edge with a simple profile. The planes appear to have had at least three owners, two of whom stamped their marks over the original make'r marks. One plane is also slightly shorter than the other which is unusual. Otherwise they are identical in all ways down to the location of the owners' marks. The blades are bedded at York pitch and are quite clean with no pitting at all on the back. Both have seen substantial use but remain in good condition and certainly have lots if useful life left in them.

It is sharp with no pitting on the back at all. The breast is slanted, while the bed is straight, a design feature found mostly on better British planes, the function of which I can't guess. It's a perfect user bead for base, casing, and other moldings.

Interesting Small Ovolo by P. Moore.
This is an early-appearing ovolo molding plane made by a P. Moore. This mark appears in AWP-IV, described as "UR" or "unrated" but other examples seem to date to ca. 1820. This one is in good condition, showing some use. It cuts a small 3/8in wide by 1/4in deep ovolo. The blade is in good shape with no pitting but will need to be trued up a bit to make it match the sole. It looks like a decent little molding plane which will be usable after a bit of work on the blade.

Unmarked 3/8in Reed and Follow Molding Plane.
This is a scarce reed and follow molding plane- a plane that can cut any number of perfectly parallel beads along a board. It has a removable fence attached to the sole with screws. The first bead is cut just like a standard side bead molding plane. Then the fence is removed to reveal a second boxed bead on the sole, this one without a blade. This bead runs along the first bead the plane cut in the stock, using it as a guide to run the second, third, and subsequent beads. It's an interesting design and a scarce one to find. The few examples of this style I've seen were British and I believe this one to be as well. It has seen lots of use, but the blade is excellent and the boxing decent so it could certainly be used today. The fence is held in with four very old slotted screws. I made sure that each could be removed and had not stripped out. I tightened them down lightly after checking them. If you intend to use this plane I suggest replacing them with modern slotted screws, preservin

The plane has a nice wide fence and depth stop so it's a cinch to use. The sole is perfectly straight with no warp at all.

H. Chapin Fenced Casing Plane.
This plane cuts a reverse ogee along the edge of the board using the face, not the edge as the reference point. It's a very easy plane to use as there is no spring angle- just line up the fence and plane until the profile is complete. Realistically it will only work well along the grain, not across. It's a useful plane to put a profile along the top of a tool chest, table top with breadboard ends, or a shelf edge. This one is in very good condition overall with a nice clean blade free of pitting.

Outstanding Mathieson Double-Iron Ogee and Ovolo Molding Plane.
This is an early and excellent Mathieson double iron molding plane made in the early 1800s. This plain "Mathieson" mark is noted as "the earliest mark" in Goodman. The plane is in outstanding condition with evidence of light use. The beech body is very clean, free of any damage, and even has some nice curly figure. The profile it cuts is 1/2in wide by 5/8in deep. One blade cuts the ovolo, the other the ogee. This separation makes it very easy to maintain the blade geometry since the ovolo will wear much quicker than the ogee. The fence and depth stop are very long, making it easy to keep at a consistent spring angle. Both blades have some minor pitting but are otherwise clean and flat. Both will sharpen up easily is you choose to use it. It's a fantastic example in great shape.

Outstanding Matched Quartet of Greenslade Sash Ovolo Molding Planes.
This is a matched set of four planes which have always been together. All four share the same maker's and single owner's mark, as well as identical patina and almost uncanny lack of wear. All four planes are crisp and clean with nice sharp corners and absolutely perfect blades. All four have cabinet pitch blades bedded at 55 degrees. All four planes are absolutely straight with no warp or twist at all. The mouths on all four are as tight as they were when they left the factory. Greenslade was a prolific maker of very high quality planes. They operated in Bristol for more than a century from 1828 all the way into the 1930s. These planes all carry the simple "W. Greenslade Bristol" mark. Since they do not carry any of the exhibition medal years, nor the later trademarks used after the acquisition of Varvill, I presume these were made prior to 1862. The set contains pairs of flat ogees in sizes 1/2in and 5/8in. Each member of the pair is marked "1" or "2". Sash planes were almost always s

Excellent Millers Falls No. 85 Rabbet and Fillister Plane.
This is the Millers Falls equivalent of the Stanley 78. It's a useful plane and works well for cutting rabbets both with and against the grain. It has an adjustable fence and depth stop to help work accurately to a given depth/width. The blade is full length and in perfect condition. The plane has virtually all of its original black finish with a few tiny specks of paint or dust here and there. The only oddity is that the fence rod is brass. It's the correct side and shape, and works perfectly, it's just brass, which is unusual. It's in perfect working order and should serve as an excellent worker.

Excellent Woden W78 Adjustable Rabbet and Fillister Plane.
This is a British-made Woden W78, an improved version of the Stanley 78 rabbet and fillister plane. The plane does everything that the Stanley does- it can accurately cut rabbets both with and across the grain. It features two key improvements. First, the fence is attached to the body with two rods. This helps keep the blade parallel, increases the clamping pressure the thumbscrews provide to help keep it in place in use, and gives you a much longer bearing surface than a standard 78 fence. The plane also has a wood knob attached to the front of the plane, finally giving you a place to rest your left hand in use, rather than looping your thumb around the bullnose section and jamming your knuckle every time you hit a grain reversal or knot. I like the Stanley 78 but it's a terribly plane to hold if you are using it for a long session. This knob is definitely an improvement. This plane has seen some light use, but not much. It retains all of its original finish, all of its original parts

Excelletn Early WWII era Stanley No. 4 Smooth Plane.
This plane was made in the first quarter of 1942. At this point Stanley still used rosewood in the knob and tote, and still milled the frog and casting for the adjusting screw.

The body is clean and crisp, the japanning nearly perfect. The adjusters are dead accurate. The blade is exceptionally clean without any pitting. One side of the tote is marked "Pattern" which I'd guess is an indicator that the plane belonged to the pattern shop of the company that bought it. It should make an excellent user smooth plane.

The throat is open more than I think is standard, but the frog can easily be moved forward to close it down if you so choose. This is a jack plane though, so it shouldn't matter much. It's a solid user plane at a lower price than most Bedrocks.

Stanley No. 10 1/2 Rabbet Smooth Plane.
This is an excellent working example of this scarce and useful Stanley plane. The plane is in very good condition overall. It is an early type with the adjustable throat which is operated by twisting the knob to loosen and tighten the plate to the body. The plane is clean and has no rust or pitting anywhere. The japanning is only slightly worn and at least 95% remains. The knob has a small chip out of the base. The tote has a small chip missing from the top of the horn. Both are otherwise in fine, solid condition. The adjusters work perfectly. The blade is likely a later Stanley replacement with the notched logo, but it's in near perfect condition with all original length and a perfectly clean back. There are no cracks or defects in the usual places these planes break. If you want one of these to put to use, and you appreciate the adjustable mouth, this is the one.

Good, Usable Stanley 5 1/2 Heavy Jack.

You still have the full 2in of original left left on the blade. You could either grind off that first 1/4in to get past the pitting or put a good back-bevel on it and go that way. The tote has a well repaired crack. The bed has been repainted but it's a decent job. The adjusters work smoothly and the low knob is in perfect condition.

The nut still works perfectly, moving both ways easily without binding, and not moving when compressed by hand. It could stand to be reinforced to ensure it continues to work perfectly. The other nut and washers work perfectly. The nicker is present. The depth stop is tight and works well. It needs a little work, but it's worth it. It's a very scarce plane and should make an exceptional worker.

This is a 5 1/2PPI rip saw in ready to use condition. The blade has seen use but the teeth are sharp and well-formed and it rips like a beast. I tested it several times and made short work of 3/4in stock easily taking 1in per stroke while following a line easily. The handle has a tight crack along the bottom screws, but it looks completely stable to me. the blade is clean on both sids and free of pitting. the etch is there but light. The handle is nicely shaped and feels good in the hand. The handle has a dowel inserted down its length to reinforce it- a feature S&J used on their backsaws. It's a good, user rip saw that will work out of the box.

Interesting 22in 6PPI Panel Saw.
This panel saw has a fancy double-loop handle and a straight back with nib. It looks like a Disston No. 9 but could have been mad eby Richardson, or another late 19th century sawmaker. The saw has a generic Warranted Superior eagle medallion and a custom etch for "J.R. Washburn, Taunton, MA". Below it reads "Every Saw Warranted, Cast Steel, Warranted". It's a short 22in saw with a rather coarse 6PPI crosscut. It's sharp enough to use right away. It crosscuts stock easily though the plate is a little short for my taste. If you want a small crosscut to fit in a toolbox or tote this is it. The apple handle is gorgeous and has no damage. It has the faint outline of the original horseshoe label around the medallion. The nib is intact. One tooth is broken, otherwise all of the teeth are well-formed and quite sharp. The plate has no pitting but the back is quite discolored, as are patches on the front. It's a fine working saw that will work well out of the box.

Disston No. 7 26in 6PPI Rip Saw.

The beech handle has minor finish loss and some dings, but no damage. The nib is intact. The plate has an even, honest patina but no pitting at all and a faint etch. The teeth are all well formed and the tooth line is still slightly breasted. It's not terribly sharp but won't require much labor to get it sharp and working well. The No. 7 is the workhorse of the Disson lineup and probably the saw I'd choose if I had to pick only one to use forever.This is a top quality rip saw in great shape.

The blade is bedded at just under 40 degrees. The toe has a lignum strike. The sole is slightly rounded. This could be a shipbuilder's plane of some sort, or intended for some other specialized task. There is a very tight, small check at the toe, but the maker's mark is clear. The sole shows some wear. The plane has clearly been used and cared for. The iron is an Auburn Tool Co with a slot, ground properly to match the sole, but likely a replacement since the plane pre-dates the Auburn mark. It's an interesting plane by a very rare maker.
