Wheelwrights Bruzz.
This is an all-metal 17in long cooper's bruzz or corner chisel. It differs slightly than a typical corner chisel in that the angle of the blade is more V shaped, less than the standard 90 degrees. This one is about 62 degrees. This tool was used by coopers, as well as carpenters and millwrights, to create and clean-up deep mortises. The special shape of the blade allowed coopers especially to work into deep angled mortises for wheel spokes. This is an excellent, clean example in usable condition.

Good user 2in Socket Chisel.
This chisel bears the GLOBE name on the blade. The Glove Mfg Co. was a conglomeration of a number of edge tool makers, and other tool makers that operated at the end of the 19th century. This chisel is in good, usable condition. It measures 14in long. Most importantly, the back is perfectly clean with ero pitting. It actually looks recently machined flat. I tested it for flat on a bench stone and found that the very light milling marks polish out with ease on a 220 grit diamond stone, leaving a polished surface behind. This one will sharpen up easily. the face of the chisel does have a small gouge out of it, but not a break. As it's on the unused front face this won't affect use at all, but it's a cosmetic distraction. Still a great user at a good price.

It's an interesting, useful drill to add to your working kit. All of the drill's forward pressure is supplied by the user through the pad, allowing it to be used for both fine and coarse work. It's an excellent working example made by North Brothers prior to the 1946 Stanley acquisition.

The bevel is in good shape and doesn't have any large nicks to grind out. It's one of the better hewing hatchets I've had in a while.

Outstanding Matched Quartet of Four Larger Side Beads.
These four side beads all came from the toolchest of a Mr. W.B. Fay. Most of the tools that came from this chest were absolutely top quality- these are no exception. All four have Mr. Fay's owner's mark at the heel and toe. All four are crisp and excellent. The 1/2 and 5/8in planes were made by Cyrus Warren in Nashua, NY in the mid-1800s. After seeing several examples of this maker's work recently, I've come to believe he made some of the highest quality American molding planes in the 1800s. These planes are both crisp and clean, showing no use at all. The corners are sharp, the blades clean and excellent, and the boxing absolutely perfect. Both planes are double boxed with extra-wide boxing, making the profile almost fully boxed- I've never seen this feature on a side bead before. These are exceptional planes. The larger two- the 3/4 and 1in were made by Jeol Fenn & Co., a Wallingford, CT planemaker which operated ca. 1850. These planes are in equally excellent condition, also with cr

It should be a good user, even if it it isn't the prettiest.

Greenlee No. 442 Spiral Ratchet Screwdriver.
This is an unusual spiral ratchet screwdriver made by Greenlee in Rockford. The first difference between this and the usual Millers Falls, North Brothers, Stanley, and other spiral ratchet drivers is the fact that the entire spiral mechanisim is enclosed in the inner steel tube. The outer tube slides over the inner in use, never exposing the delicate bits to danger. The second is the mechanism that locks the spiral shaft-most others use a knurled ring at the base of the spiral. This driver is locked in place with a pump-action. The ratchet selectio is at the base of the handle. The driver is in near mint condition with all original finish on the shaft and handle. It's an excellent working example of this interesting tool.

Swan Folding Handle Drawknife.
This is a 8in drawknife with a stout blade and folding handles. The maker's mark cannot be discerned, but only Swan made drawknives in this particular pattern. The folding handles provide two benefits- first they make it safer (for your hands, the drawknife blade, and your other tools) to store the tool in a chest or toolbox. Second, the handles fold back all the way out of the way making it much more convenient to grind and hone the blade. This example is in very good condition overall. The handles are perfect with no damage and completely tight. The blad ehas lots of length left. It does have some small dings soa quick grind and hone will be in order but you'll still have many decades of steel left afterwards. It's a top quality drawknife in very good working order.

Millers Falls No. 1 "cigar" Circular Spokeshave.
This spokeshave isn't likely to be one you'll use often, but when it's needed it's often the only tool that can do the job. This round shave can get into the tightest concave curves. I've used mine many times and it's saved me from lengthy and difficult scraping and sanding many times. It's a tough tool to master, but once you get the cutting angle down and learn how to turn it in use it's a really fun tool to use. The blade is flat out a pain to sharpen. Any sort of micro-bevel on the edge that faces the work will render it almost unusable. This area needs to be flat. A hand vise is useful for honing this one. There are a number of tutorials online that can provide hints on tuning it. This one is an earlier exampleFeb19, 1884 patent date near the mouth. The blade is long and has a flat face correctly ground. It needs to be sharpened before use. The rosewood handles are in very good shape. It shows use, but has no damage. It's a very useful shave to have onhand.

Excellent Vintage Coopers Croze.
This tool is a croze-used by a cooper to cut the groove that runs along the inside edge of a barrel to hold the head. It's a simple but specialized tool that had a unique look. The fence is rounded allowing it to run along the inside edge of the barrelly. The "stem" is adjustable to suit barrells of all widths. An eye bold holds it firm to the stem. The cutting head has three blades, two nicker irons that ride ahead of the main hooked cutting iron. The nickers first score the wood fibers on either side of what is essentially a dado while the cutter scoops out the waste. The entire tool has a most appealing patina. The stem is made of beech with pronounced ray fleck. I believe the fence is cherry, though I may be wrong. Al of the brass or bronze parts have a nice honest patina. It's one of the better looking examples I've ever seen, and it's certainly usable if you want to crank out a few kegs or firkins.

Excellent triplet of Lachapelle Molding Planes.
These planes were made by the Lachapelle family of planemakers who made wooden planes in Switzerland for several generations. These three molding planes were made together and found together.

The profiles included are a 12mm ovolo (about 3/8in wide and deep), a 16mm Side bead (about 1/2in) with a triangular fillet which is unusual and interesting. anda 10mm cove. The cove and volo look a lot like a table joint pair, but they don't quite match. All three planes are in excellent condition with perfect blades. These will make exceptional users.

Interesting 18th Century Cove Molding Plane by Hayes, Liverpool.
This is a large cove molder measuring about 3/4in square. The plane was made by William Hayes who worked in Liverpool ca. 1790-1805. It certainly has all of the features of a plane from this era including the very deep, flat chamfers on the handhold, and deep gouge cuts at the transition points. The blade is bedded at an extreme angle of 65 degrees. the blade is in great condition considering its 200+ years of age. It has no pitting and the blade matches the sole well. It's a nice example of a very early British plane.

This is a gorgeous quirk grecian ogee with a flat on the end of the profile. It measures 5/8in deep by 1in wide. The body is crisp and clean with no damage and perfect boxing.

The blade is bedded at 55 degrees- cabinet pitch, which is ideal for tough hardwoods. It's a gorgeous profile in exceptional user condition.

Tiny 3/8in Quirk Ogee and Bevel Molding Plane.
This plane has a faint maker's mark at the toe that I believe reads "W. Taylor". It is a mark I cannot find in either Goodman or AWP-IV, though I do believe it is of British make, likely in the mid 1800s. The plane cuts a small 3/8in deep by 1/2in wide quirk ogee and bevel profile. It's a profile normally used in much larger scale in casings and other furniture scale moldings. This one is in excellent condition with little wear and no damage to the body or wear. The boxing is perfect. The cabinet pitch blade is clean and quite sharp. The mouth is still quite tight. It should sharpen up easily and become a useful little molder with a very nice profile.

The profile the plane cuts is approximately 5/8in wide by 1/2in deep. The plane is in well-used condition but will still prove useful for quite some time. The blade has no pitting and has quite a bit of life left. The profile needs a little work to make it match perfectly, but it's quite close. The blade is bedded at cabinet pitch- 55 degrees, which is ideal for tricky hardwoods. The endite sole profile is boxed. The boxing is straight and true, and has no cracks.

The corners are all sharp and crisp. The body has hardly a ding or scratch. The blade is full length and clean on the back with zero pitting.

Early 1in Astragal Moulding plane by B. Dyson.
This plane was made by Benjamin Dyson working in Work in the mid-late 18th century. Goodman has Dyson working from 1772-91 then in partnership with his son from 1798 onward, the business falling to the son John Dyson onwards after that. This plane certainly has the appearance of a 18th century British molding plane including the deep flat chamfers alont eh hand hold, the round wedge finial, and the deep gouge cuts at the intersection of the hand hold to the body. The plane has clearly seen use giving the plane a nice warm patina. The blade is in fantastic condition and has no pitting. It's a very early plane, likely well over 200 years of age, that could still be put to use today.

The blade is bedded at middle pitch and has very light scattered pitting here and there on the back. The mouth is very tight. It should be an easy plane to sharpen and get up and running.

Small, Early 1/2in Covetto Molding Plane.
This is clearly an early British molding plane, likely dating to the late 18th to very early 19th century. There are several owner's marks on the the toe, one of which is stamped over the original maker's mark. I am about 95% certain the original mark is H. Brown, a maker listed in Goodman as working ca. 1797-43 in Birmingham. The plane cuts a nice small covetto or fillet and cove profile approximately 1/2in wide by 1/2in square. It's a gorgeous little profile for a small cornice molding or perhaps a small picture frame. The plane has a middle pitch blade in very good condition- there are just a few specks of pitting. The sole profile has no damage, warp or twist as is common in these smaller planes. It's a beautiful early plane in very good usable condition.

Early British 3/8in Center Bead by Allans.
This plane is clearly marked "Allans" on the toe. It has definite characteristics of a late 18th to very early 19th centuryBritish molding plane. The mark is listed in Goodman as known, though no dates of work nor any personal information on the maker are available. The plane is clean and excellent with a very good iron. The sole has some wear, as you'd expect from a plane this old with an un-boxed sole. The bead profile is dead straight, however, and the blad ehas no pitting so this one should be absolutely usable.

Crisp 3/4in Center Bead by Ohio.
This is an unusually large center bead by the Ohio Tool Co. The plane is in excellent condition with a crisp, clean body and perfect blade. It shows little use at all. The plane's most obvious features are the two holes in the handhold and the cut-aways on the escapement side. These aren't grips- these are holes to allow you to attach a plow plane's arms and fence to allow the plane to accurately cut beads any distance fromt he edge of a board. The holes are precision-cut and have an even patina with the rest of the plane so I believe these are original. The boxing is dead straight over the length of the plane. There is no warp or twist as is common with center beads. It's an excellent, usable plane.

These aren't grips- these are holes to allow you to attach a plow plane's arms and fence to allow the plane to accurately cut beads any distance from the edge of a board. The holes are precision-cut and have an even patina with the rest of the plane so I believe these are original. The boxing is dead straight over the length of the plane. the boxing has some slight variation but it falls within the size of the bead so I don't think it will matter at all. The blade is in excellent shape without any pitting at all. There is a small chip of boxing missing at the heel of the plane.

18th Century Panel Raiser by Mutter, London.
This plane was mad eby George Mutter who worked in London from 1766-99 according to Goodman. This is a true panel raiser with a blade that cuts a flat and bevel with a definite transition between the two- obvious when you look at a close-up of the blade. The plane has a beautiful patina overall and remains in usable condition. It shows sings of use but has no damage and was clearly well-kept and appreciated. The screws that lock the fence in place still hold tight. The blade, which has a mark I can't discern, still has a lot of life in it, despite its more than 210 years of age, and remains in good condition. The depth stop is a simple friction lock wedge dovetailed into the side of the plane. Over the years the stop has shrank a bit leaving it too loose to be useful. I've shimmed the sliding dovetail a bit to ensure that the stop has enough friction to stay put. I used my top-secret, completely reversible, shim stock of choice in cases like this- blue painter's tape. It sticks well an

Early S.King Fillet and Ogee Molding Plane.
Thi is a gorgeous small profile and an early example made by Samuel King in Hull. According to Goodman King worked from 1776-1817 on his own and in various partnerships.

The only real flaw is that the tang of the blade has broken, leaving only about 1.5in projecting above the mortise. It's still usable and can be set with a small hammer easily enough without too much hassle. Overall it's a very pleasing profile in a very early plane.

Very Unusual and Early Moseley Dovetail Plane.
This plane bears the mark "Moseley & Co", a mark that Goodman dates to the earliest years of John Moseley's planemaking days, ca. 1805. The plane is a most unusual fixed dovetail plane, cutting the male part of a sliding dovetail joint approximately 1/8in deep and 1/4in wide. It has a wedged nicker ahead of the skewed main blade. The plane is most unusual in that it appears to be very quickly and roughly made, which is unlike any other Moseley plane I've found. It's also made from second quality stock with a few grains swirls and tight knots, again unlike Mosely. I would speculate that this plane was made by Moseley for use in the plane shop, perhaps to cut dovetailed boxing as detailed in Whelan's book in the chapter on planemaker's tools. It's just a guess- I'd like to hear other ideas if you have them.

The planes are loaded with dings and scratches from use and storage, but retain an appealing honest patina and have not been over cleaned. The grooving plane's skates are straight and aligned. Both planes have had their original wedges replaced with nice rosewood wedges. It's a solid user pair in a very desirable size.

Ultra-Crisp Cabinet Pitch 5/8in Flat Ogee By Nelson.
This plane is in amazing condition with barely a scratch or ding to be found. the mouth is very tight, the blade in perfect condition with a flat, polished back. If it weren't for a few light hammer marks on the heel I'd say it was near-mint. The blade is bedded at 55 degrees which, combined with the ultratight mouth, should make it an ideal worker on difficult grain. The sole is not warped at all. The plane was made by Richard Nelson who worked from 1817-52 in London. It's a fantastic user molding plane in absolutely top condition.

Most Unusual Ohio Tool Co. Double-Iron 5/8in Nosing Plane.
This is by far the smallest nosing plane I've come across- most are 7/8in or larger, designed to put a 180 degree round-over on stair treads and other thick boards. This is a double-iron no. 91 nosing plane, a plane that appears in the Ohio catalogs, but not in the small 5/8in size this one is stamped with. The plane is exceptionally clean and made from beautiful figured beech. Both blades are in nearly new condition and the plane shows no use. It's an exceptional example in top condition.

Highly Figured GLadwin & Appleton 1/4in Side Bead.

The blade is clean, polished, and sharp. There is some wear to th eboxing but it will still be usable. It's a gorgeous plane in a highly desirable size.

Excellent Moving Filliser by Evans, Rochester. .
This is an excellent working moving fillister made by the partnership of E&J Evans who worked in Rochester, NY from 1841-85. The moving fillister can accurately cut rabbets both with and across the grain. When working cross-grain a wedged nicker blade scores the fibers before the skewed main blade shears them. The plane has a steel-soled brass depth stop to accurately control the depth of the rabbet. The fence is held securely with two screws to set the width of the rabbet. The blade is long, nearly full-length, and in excellent condition. The plane is in excellent condition overall with very few signs of use and no damage at all. It's one of the better American fillisters I've come across. The plane has a maximum width of cut of 1 1/4in.The only flaw is that the finial to the wedge that holds the nicker in place has sheared off. It should make an exceptional worker.

Mint European Adjustable Rabbet Plane.
This plane was made by Jan Nooitgedagt of Ylst, Friesland, Holland. The company was in business for some 350 years or so before being bought by Record. This plane has a beech body, a 1 3/16in double blade, and a hornbeam sole for wear resistance. IT has never been used. The double iron is an interesting touch on a rabbet plane, but not unheard of- some American makers did the same in the 19th century. This plane is in new, unused condition. The forward part of the sole is adjustable by sliding it along a dovetailed way and tightening it with a thumbscrew on top. This allows the mouth to be adjusted, and the front sole moved out of the way so that the thick double iron can be removed. It's looks like a perfect user plane to me.

The plane is double boxed- a small boxed slip protects the leading edge of the rabbet half, and the entire profile of the flat ovolo is protected with hammerhead boxing. Both blades are in great shape with no pitting. The plane body is clean and crisp with nice sharp corners. It clearly hasn't seen a lot of use. It's a nice smaller profile for cabinet scale sash work.

The working area is polished and the bevel is actually quite sharp. It is full length and matches the sole profiel exactly. The body has some dark areas from what I presume is tallow.

Top Quality Sash Fillister by Malloch, Perth.
If you want to see an absolutely top-shelf sash fillister, this is it. The plane was made by D. Malloch in perth in the mid-late 1800s. The plane has all of the best features. The arms are capped with brass caps, the ends of which are nicely chamfered and filed to fit. The working area of the sole is protected with a massive piece of boxwood connected to the body with quadruple sliding dovetails- a joint which boggles the mind. The massive brass depth stop is soled with steel to prevent wear. It functions perfectly- the brass thumbscrew moving it smoothly and a slotted screw locking it in place. The blade is long and in good shape. The nicker blade is held in place with a boxwood wedge. The plane is quite clean overall and makes a stunning example to display. The only flaw is the forward keyed wedge is missing its smaller head- it's still perfectly functional. The arms are very tight in the body, though they can be adjusted. It's a really nice example of the planemaker's art.

It leaves a 1/4in tongue of a specific length, that length dictated by a simple tombstone style depth stop. The iron is an Ibbotson and in excellent condition.

Exceptional 1/8in Side Bead by Varvill.

The body is crisp and clean with no wear, signs of use, or any damage. IT has a slightly dark, even patina purely from age. The corners are all sharp and crisp. The profile is fully boxed and the boxing in perfect shape. The mouth is very tight. The blade still has the original factory grind on it. I quickly polished th eback and was able to cut a decent 1/8in bead without honing the bevel. With a minimum of work this plane will be cutting beads in virtually any wood. The blade is bedded at a steep 55 degrees, perfect for hardwoods. It's a great plane in rare but desirable size. It's unlikely to come across a better example than this.

Exceptional 18th Century Medium Sized Ogee By Turner & Green.
This plane was made by the partnership of Phineas Turner and John Green in York. According to Goodman, this partnership worked from 1771-73. That would mean this plane is older than the United States. This is amazing considering that the plane is in excellent condition overall, likely better than 99.9% of all planes I find. The plane has a very attractive, honest patina from light use and age. The mouth is perfectly tight. The blade has no pitting at all. The plane features flat chamfers along the hand-hold, deep gouge cuts at the transition point, and a nice concave profile along the top, all features of wel-made 18th century planes.

It could be put to use or would make a great addition to any collection of early 18t century planes.

Strange Kellogg Quirk Cove Molding Plane.
This is a very bizarre profile, one I haven't seen before. Kellogg made some unusual planes so it shouldn't really surprise me. The plane has not been modified- this is the original profile. At first I thought it might be some sort of mother plane but I doubt it. Th plane cuts a 1/2in wide by 1/4in deep quick cove profile. There is a tiny chip out of the very rear of the boxed quirk which makes it hard to see the profile from behind- I included a shot of it from the toe of the plane to help illustrate it better The plane is in excellent condition overall with minimal wear. The boxing has some wear so it was used for sue. The blade is in excellent condition. It's a strange one, and likely a profile you do not have already in your molding plane collection.

Small 18th Century Ogee Molding Plane by I SYM, London.

It has a very clean, sharp blade bedded at just over cabinet pitch- around 57 degrees. The plane is in very good condition with some signs of use but no damage. It's a great example of a 18th century molder, and still quite usable today.

Good Working Set of Hollows and Rounds.
This is a good working set of nine pairs of hollow and round molding planes. As found, the set consisted of sixteen matched planes made by Sandusky. There were two missing planes that I replaced and a few other issues that I will describe below. The original sixteen planes were all owned by a Mr. William Bourk. They were made by the Sandusky Tool Co and all bear the model number 92 on the toe. Most of the planes are in excellent condition. All of the blades are full-length, or close to it, and exceptionally clean with no pitting. A few of the planes had some problems and I have replaced these with matching planes in good working order. The planes are numbered with Sandusky's sizing system which doesn't match any other maker's so I will list the radius of the arc each pair cuts. I will describe each pair below in detail. There are also pictures of all of the planes below.

Exceptional 18th Century 3/8in Square Ovolo in Ready to Use Condition.
This molding plane was made by William Maddox in London before the Revolutionary war. Despite its more than 230 years it remains in outstanding condition and is ready to use right out of the box. Maddox worked from 1748-1775 according to Goodman. He established his workshop in Peter Street, Westminster. This shop was later bought out by G. Mutter, then Moseley, then Wm. Marples, where it ran into the 1960s- over 200 years of planemaking at the same location. This plane is beautifully made and features the broad flat chamfers and almost round wedge finial we expect to see in 18th century planes. The plane cuts a nice small 3/8in square ovolo. As found, the plane has a flat, lapped back and sharp bevel. As you can see in the photos it works very well. This is just one of those planes I had to try out, simply for the sake of using a tool that's older than the United States. The blade projects across the sole profile evenly. It cuts a smooth, burnished profile that needs absolutely no sand

Woden Rabbet and Filister Plane.
This is the Woden equivalent of the Stanley 78, only with a few upgraded features. It was made by Woden in Sheffield, england and remains in excellent user condition. The Woden plane's fence rides on two rods which provides additional stability and prevents the fences from coming out of square or rotating as the 78's fence will do at times. The other obvious improvement is the addition of a wooden tote. The 78 is a very good plane but it's not a comfortable plane to use for long sessions. The Woden's tote at least give you a firm grip point and somewhere to hook your left thumb over in use. It's an excellent user plane, and a very useful one as well.

Stanley No. 118 Low-Angle Block Plane.
This is a simple, no-frills, tough as nails low-angle block plane, a model that gets little respect but one I have a fondness for. The 118 has a 1 5/8in wide blade bedded at only 12 degrees. The body is one piece of pressed steel- virtually indestructible and "boy proof" according to the catalogs. This is a plane you can pack in your outdoor kit, let your kid use, whatever, and not worry about it. You probably don't want to bring your Lie-Nielsen 60 1/2 block plane outside to tweak some window trim but this one you could take out without worry. This is an excellent example with all original blue paint and a long, nearly unused blade with no pitting.

Stanley 65 Low-Angle Block PLane made for Craftsman.
This is an unusual block plane- it's clearly a Stanley 65 with a Stanley knuckle-joint cap and "type 11" V logo blade, but the body is marked "Craftsman 3732" with the "BB" maker's code which indicated Stanley made it. Regardless of what the plane say, it's in excellent working order. The sole is NOT cracked around the mouth, a defect a majority of the vintage 65s I see suffer from. The V logo blade is in excellent condition with zero pitting and a clean, lapped back.. The blade adjuster is tight and accurate. The body is clean, the japanning 98% or better. This is probably the best user block plane Stanley ever made and this is an excellent working example at a discount since the Craftsman name will disinterest the "collectors".

The japanning is pretty much perfect, and the nickel is almost all intact as well. The patina is even and honest throughout, clearly uncleaned and no messed with. The original blade is quite short. I recommend setting it aside and replacing it with a standard no. 3 blade when using the plane, keeping the original for posterity's sake. I can supply a new-old-stock no. 3 blade at no cost if you'd like. It's an excellent user plane and one of the finest example of this earliest typ

Good, Usable Wartime Stanley No. 7. Jointer Plane.
This is a type 18 made for a few short years at the end of WWII. It has the wartime knob and tote and the diagonal knurling on the brass adjusting wheel. At this point some of the wartime shortages were eased so we see the reintroduction of brass rather than steel screws, a milled frog adjuster, but we still have the hardwood knob and tote instead of rosewood. the plane is in very good condition overall and should work just fine. The sides and sole are clean with some honest patina. The blade has significant pitting. Rather than try to lap it out I'll include a mint, new-old-stock Stanley-England blade with this plane.

There is a line across the top quarter of the tote that might look like a crack but it does not go all the way around the tote and it does not move in the slightest.

Exceptional Ohio Tool Co No. 05 Jack Plane.
This is one of the best examples of an Ohio bech plane I've come across. They aren't well-known but Ohio made some fine bench planes in the early 1900s, a time during which Stanley had few competitors in the bench plane market. Ohio made Bailey pattern planes without a few of the Stanley patented features- namely the two-part lateral adjuster and the patented frog mating surface. Ohio's planes stand apart from Stanley due to their irons. The iron was the selling point- see the advertisement in the last photo below for an example of how they marketed their irons. They equipped their planes with massive tapered irons nearly double the thickness of a stock Stanley iron. The added mass prevented chatter which is the bane of the thin Stanley blades. Otherwise their planes are nearly identical to a Stanley from the same era. This one is probably the nicest I've come across. It has nice clean sides and a clean sole. The bed has at least 9% japanning. The knob and tote are rosewood grained and

It has two flaws- the first is a small casting flaw in the right cheek which has left a small pit- a cosmetic issue only. The second is that while the blade appears to have it's original factory bevel, it's ground out of square by a couple of degrees. You could quickly regrind it square or there is enough room in the lateral adjuster to allow it to project evenly. Both are minor flaws, but should be pointed out. Overall it should be a fine worker.

Wartime Stanley 4 1/2 Heavy Smoother.

The sides and sole are good and clean. The bed is missing much of its original japanned finish. The original blade and cap iron were in terrible shape when found.

Stanley Type !1 No. 3 Small Smooth Plane.
This is an early type 11 made ca. 1910. It has the three patent dates on the bed, the arched logo blade, low knob, small adjuster wheel, and blank lever cap- all of the hallmarks of a type 11. The plane has seen a bit of use, but not much. It remains in excellent condition. The sides have the sort of patina you'd expect from a plane that's over 100 years old and was used carefully. The japanning is near perfect. The rosewood knob and tote ahbe no damage, just the slightest dings and scratches. The blade adjusters works perfectly. The blade itself is exceptionally clean without any pitting or even discoloration. It's one of the cleanest blades I've come across from this era. This all adds up to a small smoothing plane that should be an exceptional worker.

The blade is especially nice being a full 1/8in thick throughout. It's in fantastic condition as well with a perfectly clean back, and sharp bevel. The knob and tote have minor wear and only one small flake missing from the end of the horn the only damage I can spot. The adjusters work perfectly. The japanning is near perfect as well. The body and sole have minor discoloration but could be cleaned up if you so desire. IT should be a top notch worker.

Stanley No. 3 SW Era Small Smooth Plane.
If you want a bargain working hand plane from the SW era, and don't care too much about what it looks like, this might be the plane for you. The positives- the sides and sole are clean, the adjusters work perfectly, and the blade is original, long, and free of pitting. Negatives- the knob and tote are in great shape but not original. The bed and frog were splashed with some sort of finish that glazed the original japanning and won't come off. Underneath the japanning is near perfect, however. None of these will affect the plane in use, but it isn't the prettiest.

There are the usual dings and scratches but no chips. There are a couple of very small, tight cracks in the very tip of the upper horn. The teeth are in bad shape. It will need to be completely sharpened but will come out an excellent working backsaw.

This is a 16in long tennon or sash saw with 3 1/4in depth beneath the steel plate. This is a J.D. Darlington saw, a second line saw of harvey W. Peace of Brooklyn, NY.

The saw has three split nuts, one embossed. The medallion has Wasbourne's 1869 patent date above the eagle. The plate is dead straight. It is pretty clean, with an honest overall patina. It has scattered pinprick pitting which won't make a lick of difference in use. The teeth are in bad shape and will require a complete sharpening.

George Bishop No. 7 Rip Saw.
This is a smaller, fine toothed rip saw mad by Bishop in Cincinnati, OH. The saw is only 24in long and 6 1/2PPI Rip. This saw is essentially the Bishop version of the classic Disston No. 7. It's an uncommon saw in excellent working order. The plate is clean with a bold etch. The nib is intact. The beech handle has a chip out of the top horn. The plate is not perfectly straight, but close to- just a tiny bend toward the toe- out of straight maybe a couple of thousandths is all. The teeth are sharp. The teeth have an aggressive tooth profile and the saw cuts very fast, yet smooth. It cuts like a 5PPI rip saw. I made a bunch of test cuts and could split a pencil line with it and take more than an inch per stroke in 3/4 spruce, even with my mediocre handsaw skills. It's a fine working saw by an uncommon maker, in an uncommon size/configuration, and in excellent working order right out of the box.

Disston No. 7 Rip Saw.
This is a very good, usable 26in 5PPI rip saw made by Disston & Sons. The saw dates to 1876-87 based on the medallion. The plate is straight. It has a crisp, clear etch and the nib is intact. The handle has a small chip out of the top horn but is otherwise excellent, It has the extra-curvy horns the early 7s featured. It also has remnants of the horseshoe label around the medallion. The front of the plate was cleaned before leaving some swirls- I got most of them out without disturbing much of the nice patina the blade has. This is all cosmetic nit-picking. None of this will affect use- I just don't want you to think I leave swirl marks on saw plates after cleaning them. The teeth aren't terribly sharp, but they are all in good shape. The tooth line is straight despite some use. It shouldn't take much work, just a filing, to get it up and running. It's a nice early, usable example.

Exceptional 26in Heavy Rip Saw.
This is a big 26in rip saw with 4 1/2PPI. It has a stout cast steel blade with a nib. The teeth are all in excellent condition, reasonably sharp, but in need of a quick filing. The toothline is still slightly breasted, not in need of a jointing. The handle is beech and shaped with a double loop and very long horns. The handle has no damage and almost all original finish, hardly a ding or scratch. The blade is dead straight. It is nicely patinated with no pitting or rust at all. The saw was etched for " A. B. Clarke", a Richmond, VA hardware dealer founded in 1852. The saw has the look of a Disston no. 9, but I don't think it's a Disston. I'd bet Richardson or perhaps Peace, but it could be one of the many hundreds of smaller makers that operated in the mid-late 1800s. It's a gorgeous saw and should make an excellent user.

Exceptional Harvey W. Peace 16in Backsaw- Perfectly Sharp and Ready to Work.
This is an early Peace backsaw model no. 40 with an apple handle, steel spine, and spring steel plate. It is 12PPI crosscut. The Plate is 16in long, 3 1/4in at the toe, 3 1/2in at the heel The spine is steel and not stamped. The blade is etched "Extra, J.L. Buffing & Son, Fall River, MAss, Spring Steel Warranted". I imagine Buffington was a hardware merchant and had the saws custom etched for his business. The only reference I turned up was am 1876 Masons Lodge Report, which does tie in to the approximate era of this saw. The saw was recently sharpened and tuned by one of the best sawsmiths out there today- email me if you want his name and my recommendation. The saw cuts beautifully, much faster than its 12PPI would suggest leaving a small , neat kerf. The plate does not bind or stick and the saw is easy to start. The apple handle has a few minor dings but there is no damage. I has a pronounced hook at the top and long, sweeping horns. The recessed medallion has the Peace amr-and-ham

Disston No. 12 London Spring Steel 24in 10PPI Fine Crosscut- Sharp and Ready to Work.
This is a nice no. 12 from the 1896-1917 era. The saw was recently sharpened by one of the best sawsmiths out there today- email me if you want his name and my recommendation. The saw is ideal for crosscutting thinner stock. It performs very well, sawing smoothly, starting easily, and leaving a nice clean kerf. I found this saw almost 15 years ago at a garage sale- it was one of the first saws I ever found. I've used it on and off over the years, having it sharpened a few times but not enough to make a noticeable difference in plate depth. The blade is dead straight, the etch a bit light but clear. There are a few patches of light pitting well away from the tooth line. The most obvious flaw is the missing top horn, an old injury that never bothered me at all. The defect makes it a bargain for a good, usable saw that will be ready to work right out of the box with no additional cost or labor required to sharpen it.

It is almost perfectly straight with a slight wave over its length of no more than 1/32in. It's a minor point though as the saw cuts perfectly with ease even with the saw's currently dull teeth. The saw does not bind and it cuts straight. It needs tooth work so it's an ideal saw to retooth rip and use for dovetails. It has a nicely shaped beech handle with no damage, just some slight finish loss. It should be an exceptional user saw with a little work on the teeth.

This saw has a light but legible etch "No. 125" and "The Celebrated London Spring Steel " with a large star in the center. The saw has a let-in style handle, a skew back, and Glover patent saw screws without a patent date. Both Wheeler, Madden, and Clemson, and Woodrough and McParlin made saws using the "celebrated London Spring Steel" moniker. It would not surprise me if either made this saw, or perhaps it was made by Disston after the acquisition of the National Saw Co. Regardless of who made it, it's an excellent user saw. The plate is clean and straight, the handle exceptional except a bit of finish loss. It's an 8PPI crosscut, ideal for breaking down smaller stock and making fine cuts. The teeth need sharpening but they are all in good shape so it shouldn't need extensive tooth work. It should be a great user crosscut saw.

Absolutely Massive 30in Wooden Jointer Plane by C. Warren, Nashua.
The is the largest example of a wooden bench plane I've come across. This is not a cooper's plane meant to be held upside down and the stock run over it.. This plane came from a joiner's tool chest full of an amazing assortment of New England wooden planes. The plane was made by Cyrus Warren in Nashua, NY in the mid-1800s. After seeing several examples of this maker's work recently, I've come to believe he made some of the highest quality American molding planes in the 1800s. This plane is 30 inches long with a double iron just shy of 3in wide. All told it weighs about 12.5lbs. It absolutely dwarfs a Stanley no. 8 both in terms of size and mass- see the last photo in the group for a sense of scale. This thing makes my workbench look small! The body is 3.5x3.75in thick beech in close to perfect condition. The body has no checks or cracks, the sole virtually no wear. The maker used well-seasoned beech- the sole has no warped or twisted at all and the mortise has not shrunk around the bla

Exceptional 2in Coffin Smoother.
This plane has no maker's mark on the toe, but it has an Auburn blade so I assume it was an Auburn Tool Co. product. The plane's beech body is especially clean and crisp with no damage. The mouth is exceptionally tight- about as tight as you'll ever see on a vintage plane. The plane is 8.5in long with a 2in wide double iron. The blade is in exceptional condition asa well- there is no pitting at all on the back and the bevel has no chips. If you want a smaller wooden smoother to use I can't think of a better one.

Exceptional, Near-Mint Thos. Appleton Handled Screw-Arm Plow Plane.
This plane is back on the list after being returned by the first buyer who said it was too clean to put to work. Please use as this as an example of my no-hard-feelings return policy. Please feel free to return anything for any reason. No explanation necessary and no hard feelings. I would say, however, that if you are looking for an absolute top-quality plow plane to put to work, this could be it. This is a tool that was made to be used. While it makes a gorgeous shelf decoration, you should not have any concerns at all about using it (carefully of course). It should be an exceptional plane to use, and at a small fraction of a price of buying a newly made plane from a modern maker. So.. here it is again..

, This is one of the cleanest plow planes Iíve ever come across. I've enjoyed owning it for the past ten years or so- I'm a big fan of Appleton's planes, but it's time to find it a new home. The plane was made by Thomas Appleton, one of America's premier plane makers in the

Scarce High-Angle 2in Wooden Smoothing Plane.
Wooden bench planes with blade angles greater than 47.5 degrees are scarce. This one has a cabinet pitch blade at 55 degrees. The massive double iron by Ibbotson is 2in wide and has a good bit of life left. The back is mostly clean with a few specks of pitting here and there, but nothing that will cause much fuss in sharpening it. The body has some wear but is pretty clean. The mouth has already been reinforced with what appears to be rosewood. It has no maker's mark but appears to be well-made and should be a good user.

Massive Quirk Ogee and Bevel Crown Molder.
This plane is clearly European in style and features a German single iron. The plane is 10.5in long and over 3in wide. The profile itself is 2 3/8in wide by 2in deep. It's a massive molding profile. The plane is made of what I believe is European beech. IT has a beautiful patina from age and use. The blade has some scattered pitting but it's in quite good shape overall. The wedge is especially nice with a complete 180 degree round-over on the top. I think it's a beautiful plane with an extra-curvy profile. Fit for a shelf or a tool chest with a bit of fettling.
