Nice Pair of Handled 3/4in Tongue and Groove Planes by Fox& Washburn
These planes cut a tongue and groove joint centered on 3/4in stock and can use used on stock between 5/8 and 7/8in. These are handled planes with nice closed totes. Handled T&G planes in this small size are very scarce. The planes are slightly longer than normal molding planes, each measuring 11 1/2in long. The planes are in very good condition. The bodies have some dings and scratches but no major damage. The totes have nice long horns. The tongue plane has a small sliver missing from the side of the handle but it appears to be a very old wound, the exposed wood having exactly the same color and patina as the rest of the plane. The blades are exceptionally clean and just about ready to work. The partnership of Luther Fox and William Washburn is reported to have worked between 1835-36 in Amherst, MA. This mark rates (***) for rarity in AWP-IV. A good, usable pair of planes by an obscure plane maker. $55

Beautiful Figured Maple Handled Slitting/Panel Gauge.
This gauge is made from stunning curly maple. The beam is 18 inches long, and a stout 1 1/4in. wide by 1 1/4in. thick. There is a metal wear plate attached to the top of the beam to absorb the wear from the set screw in the head. The tote looks like it was made from some sort of curly/burl oak. It is very well ade with a crisp, long horn. It it attached to the beam with a nicely done through mortise. The head is another type of wood, perhaps mahogany. It is secured to the beam with an interesting and early appearing iron thumb screw. The gauge has a proper scribe with one flat face and one beveled face. There is a partial maker's mark on the scribe that I cannot make out. It is a beautiful tool- the curly maple really stands out and catches the light. It is a high-quality user-made tool, a great addition to a collection or a fun tool to put to use. $55

Set of 8 D,M&K Jennings Pattern Auger Bits.
This is an incomplete set, but the box and bits are so cool, and scarce, I will sell it as-is. The bits were made by DeWitt, Morrison, and Kelley, A Philadelphia, PA company that made all sorts of carpenter's edge tools. This is the first set of bits I've seen by this company. The bits appear to be Jennings pattern with the double twist shank and medium/fine lead screw. They differ slightly from the traditional Jennings pattern in that thaey have both vertial and horizontal cutting lips, much like a T-handle auger would. I imagine these would bore a very clean, crisp hole. The bits are sizes 16, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10, 8, 6. All of the bits are in excellent condition with good screws and spurs. The bits are packed in a mahogany box of superior quality. The original paper labels are in place and nearly perfect. The bits are held in place with cast hasp that swings over the bit shanks and locks in place with a spring pin. The hasp is cast with the arrow logo of DM&K. It is a high quality set of bits in a most interesting box. $45

Small 6in. Adjustable Handle Drawknife
This drawknife is unmarked, other than the 6in. size. It closely resembles a Swan adjustable drawknife that I use so I suspect this one was made by Swan as well. The drawknife is in very good condition. The blade is very long and a nice small 6in. size. The bevel is sharp and there are no chips or dings on the edge. The back face has some very small pinpoint pits, but nothing that is going to prevent it from being a good user. The adjustable handles are very tight. The handles can be adjusted to any angle by loosening the end caps and engaging the handles in a different slot in the frame. It is an excellent design and allows the tool to be adjusted to fit your taste in attack angles. A perfect user drawknife. $30

Early Stanly No. 3 Small Smooth Plane.
This is a type 6 from ca. 1888-1892. It has three patent dates on the lateral adjuster and Bailey's patent stamped on the inside of the blade adjuster. It is in good, usable condition. The body has dark patina on the sides but the sole is clean and the japanning is remarkable- maybe 98% or so. The adjusters all work well. The tote is almost perfect- there is a tiny chip out of the very top of the horn. The knob has some chips around the base but it is tight and will work. The blade is long with 1 3/4in of life left. There is no pitting on the working face. A good, early plane that will be a good user. $30

Stanley No. 4 Smooth Plane.
This is an early type 11 made before WWI. This plane is in very good conditon with no rust and a clean body. It has the hallmarks of a type 11- a low knob, three patent dates, the plain lever cap with a keyhole shaped hole, and the small adjuster wheel. It has the early "TmT" logo which predates the "V" logo by a couple of years. The body has the usual toolbox dings you'd expect from a plane of this age that has been carefully used. The blade is long and sharp with a clean back. The rosewood tote has a very well repaired crack that is tight and won't come apart if I try to break it. It's a good user. $30

Unmarked Continental Moving Fillister.
Keeping up with the Continental planes, here is a gorgeous moving fillister. I love the look of these European moving fillisters with the sweeping brass depth stop on the escapement side. The sole has a similar brass fence to regulate the width of cut. It is a heavy, dense plane with a substantial feel in the hand due to the thick hardwood body and all that brass attached to ti. The working corner of the sole is reinforced, perhaps with lignum or some other sort of hard, dense tropical wood. The blade is skewed like all moving fillisters. It is extremely sharp. The nicker is massive and sharp. It is held in place with a metal band that is tightened with a thumbscrew- a much better design than the dovetailed nicker many American planes employed. A great worker, and something we don't see too often over here. $40

Stanley No. 18 Knuckle-Joint Block Plane
This plane is a favorite among users- It is functionally the same as a 9 1/2 with its standard angle blade and adjustable mouth. It has the knucle joint lever cap which many folks feel is superior in use, feeling more natural in the hand and holding the blade tight. This is a Sweetheart era plane that has seen little use. The nickel plating on the cap is about 95% but is fairly dull. It has the SW logo on the cap and the blade. The body is good with nearly perfect japanning, no chips or cracks, but some pitting on the left side. The sole is clean and the adjustable mouth works well. An excellent user, despite the cosmetic blemish. $30

Stanley No. 12 Adjustable Scraper.
This is my favorite scraper Stanley made. It is an excellent scraper to use- the blade angle adjustment is invaluable and the rosewood handles make it very comfortable in the hand.

The original finish is nearly perfect as well, and the grain is excellent. The sole and sides are very clean with no rust or pitting. The blade is a replacement made by E.C. Atkins. It is much longer than the standard Stanley blade- nearly 6in overall. It is clean, sharp, and has a crisp maker's mark. I have an spare original 12 blade that I can substitute if you'd like but the Atkins is a superior blade. A great scraper to put to use. $90

Varvill and Sons, Ltd. Plough Plane w/ Full Set of Irons
This is a beautiful British plow in perfect working order. This plane was made by Varvill and Sons at the Ebor Works in York, England. Varvill is known for making the highest quality planes. Their planes are not only excellent users, but also of the highest fit and finish. This plane is no exception.

The fence is nicely profiled and hold securely to the arms. The depth stop is regulated with a thumbscrew and has full range of motion. The depth stop is secured with a screw holding tight to the beautifully crafted brass cathedral window. All four brass arm tips are present.

Gorgeous Craftsman-Made Panel Gauge.
This is a panel gauge design I haven't seen before. The beam is 20 inches long. It looks to be chestnut, but I'm not certain. There is a maker's mark "BORRELL" stamped twice on the head. The head is beautifully carved. There is a wooden key that holds the head tight to the beam. It is not set/unset like the common wedge-lock heads are. Rather, it is made with such precision that the key exerts enough pressure on the beam to keep the head set, but still allows it to be adjusted. It is an exceptionally well-made gauge. $35

D.R. Barton Hewing Hatchet.
A good user with a 6 1/2in. wide blade. It has a good sharp bevel- plenty sharp as-is for most work. The flat face has only minimal pitting in a few small areas. The blade is laminated and has a lot of life left. It's a good size hatchet- large enough to have some authority while small enough for normal folks like me to use it for an extended period. I spent a good half-hour with it the other day trimming the bark and wormy edges from some nice red spruce boards I rescued over the winter. I will attest that works quite well. $40

Massive E.M. Boynton 28in Rip Saw
Eben Moody Boynton produced saws in Brooklyn, NY in the late 1800s. He was a contemporary and partner of Harvey W. Peace. Boynton seems to have specialized in crosscut and circular saws as his handsaws are extremely scarce. He exited the saw business sometime in the late 1880s to focus his energies on development of his patented bicycle trolley system. He was an interesting fellow for sure. This is only the second Boynton saw I've come across and it's fantastic. The plate is massive- 28in and 5PPI Rip. The plate is over 3in. deep at the toe. There is a prominent nib. It is straight and sharp. There is some pitting on the back side of the blade, but it is away from the tooth line. The only other fault I can find are three teeth broken off about half-way. These are all close to the toe. The etch is faint but clear- E.M. Boynton, no. 7. Spring Steel, Patent Temper, Patent Ground. The beech double-loop handle is fantastic with no chips or cracks and traces of the original horseshoe label around the medallion. The handle has no chips or cracks and perfect horns. The medallion and saw screws are Munger's patent two-piece screws, something that many of the New York area makers used. A very, very scarce saw in very good condition. $80

Interesting 16 in. Rosewood and Brass Try Square.
This is an large 16in. try square. Most squares of this size and style I see are British. This one is marked by the American tool maker. G.G. Straw. I haven't been able to dig up much about this tool maker, other than his entry in AWP-IV. Apparently Mr. Straw also made wooden planes around 1850. This square has his maker's mark clearly stamped at the heel of the square body. The blade is 16in. long and 2 5/8in. wide. It is straight and clean. The rosewood body has some minor dings and scratches but nothing major. It has a brass plate on the working face. There is a removable brass key that allows the square to sit flat on a board- a very nice feature found only in the best squares. This is a nice size square to use for marking length in wide boards. A very interesting square by an American tool maker. $45

Unmarked Boxwood and Brass Two-Foot Four-Fold Rule
I don't mean unmarked as in "there is no maker's mark" I mean unmarked as in "It is completely unmarked. There are no graduations. It is blank". It is a high-quality boxwood and brass rule with a nice arch joint and clean wood. The hinges are tight. Why it remains unmarked is beyond me. It is the perfect opportunity to invent your own measuring system. $15

Millers Falls No. 97 Ultimate Breast Drill.

If I had to pick a favorite manufactured old tool, it would probably be the Millers Falls No. 97. It is the most over-engineered, gizmo-laden boring tool ever created. Is truly an engineering marvel. The drill has five drive modes, selected by turning an adjuster between the gears. Plain mode is simple- moving the chuck as you'd expect clockwise and counter-clockwise as you turn the crank. It also features a Left-Hand and Right-Hand ratchet, again fairly straightforward . The real beauty is in the "continuous motion" modes, described as Left Hand Onward and Right hand Onward. In these modes the chuck moves in one direction regardless of what direction the handle is turned.- really useful when you are drilling in a corner or other restricted area.To top it all off, the drill speed in any of these modes can be changed from fast to slow (about 1:1 to 1:3) by the simple manipulation of an adjuster on the crank arm. It's just cool stuff. All of that functionality is packed into a heavy-duty frame weighing in at over 8 pounds. The 97 featured a detachable breast plate held in place with a knurled nut as well as a side handle. It can be mounted vertically or horizontally by loosening the hex nut that holds it to the frame. Both the breast plane and side handle are frequently missing on these drills. By removing the breast plate the drill can be held in a pistol grip fashion, the user putting their index finger through the loop in the frame. The drill's crank can be adjusted to one of two positions to help operate the tool in difficult positions and for increased power- normally at 90 degrees to the frame or parallel to the frame to be used in an up and down pump action. The 97 shipped with a Star chuck capable of holding round shank bits from 0-1/2in in diameter. These drills are frequent found in rough shape, a testament to the amount of hard use they saw in their life times. This particular drill is in good condition. It is mechanically perfect- all five drive modes work well, the speed selector works as does the chuck. The frame has about 50% japanning remaining. The drive gear has most of the red paint and gold stripe. Based on Randy's excellent web site, I can date it to sometime between 1912-1915. The 97 is a fairly rare drill, probably due in large part to their original high cost. The 97 was by far the most expensive drill Millers Falls sold, with a list price of $95/doz in the 1915 catalog. It is highly sought after by collectors- the last one I saw sell at auction, a minty example but with a completely frozen transmission, sold for $330. $125

Millers Falls No. 25 Carving Set.

This is a set of 12 Millers Falls carving chisels and gouges dating to somewhere before 1931. It is marked with the Millers Falls, Mass. location.

The twelfth tool has been broken- I can't tell what it is but i I'll include a 5/8in. Buck Bros. flat-sweep gouge which will fit nicely with the set. The carving tools are generally in very good condition or better- some are honed and ready to use, others will need sharpening before use. This is a good set of tools for small to medium scale carving work. $75/set

North Brothers "Yankee" No. 30 Automatic Screwdriver.

One of the best examples I've found in a while with all of the original nickel and a silky smooth action to the ratchet. It has been taken care of for at least 45 years since this one pre-dates the 1946 Stanley acquisition. It can be used as an automatic push screwdriver in both forward in reverse by fliping the slector switch. It can also act as a simply ratchet screwdriver by turning the locking ring to fix the spiral shaft in place. This one does not have the automatic spring so it is quite sfate to use around kids, pets, and windows. Minor finish loss on the handle is the only fault. A great user. $28

Lakeside No. 5A Heavy Jack Plane.

Lakeside was a brand of tools sold by Montgomery Ward. Their planes were made by the big companies- I'd bet anything this one was made by Stanley. This example is virtually mint with very clean body, nearly perfect japanning, and perfect mechanical adjusters. The blade is also perfect with no rust or pitting and full-length. The cap iron has all the original bluing. The knob and tote have no chips or cracks and all finishes. The heavy jack is the same length as a normal jack plane, but uses a 2 3/8in. wide blade, the same as a 4 1/2 and 7. An excellent plane to use. $45

E. Safford Tight 4/8 Quirk Ogee.

Elias Safford worked in Albany NY as a plane maker and tool maker ca. 1813-1821. This plane has the distinctive broad, flat chamfers typical of a plane from the late 18th / early 19th century. The plane cuts a tight, steep quirk ogee. The plane is in good condition overall- definitely usable but with a few condition issues. Most obvious is the hang-hole bored at the toe of the plane. It will allow it to be stored on a peg. The boxing also has a few cracks, but it is tight and the cracks shouldn't be an issue. On the positive side the blade is excellent- clean, sharp, and ground properly. It doesn't look like this plane was used much, if at all. Despite its ~180 year history, it certainly has some life left in it yet. $30

Union Mfg. Co. Block plane.

This is the Union version of the 9 1/2 style block plane- standard angle with an adjustable mouth. It uses an interesting sliding switch to open/close the adjustable mouth. It is stamped Pat Applied For but I can't seem to find the patent data on it. The plane is in very good condition overall. It has seen some careful use, but it still has a lot of life left. The japanning is virtually perfect on the body- about 50% on the lever cap where the user's had rests. The blade is in good shape and has about an inch of life left. The sliding mouth piece moves smoothly, as do the blade adjusters. An uncommon block plane. Union made high-quality planes and tools in New Britain, CT until they were acquired by Stanley. $30

Interesting Unmarked Small Ogee.

This plane does not have a maker's mark but it was clearly professionally made. It cuts a nice small ogee, perhaps 3/8in. or so, perfect for smaller moldings. The interesting fact is the secondary wedge attached to the bed. This has the affect of moving the plane slightly forward, closing the mouth down, and elevating the bed angle to slightly higher than york Pitch. It is an interesting and well-executed enhancement. The blade is in excellent condition- sharp and clean, matching the profile exactly. An interesting and usable plane. $35

Matched Pair of Side Rabbets by J&L Denison.

This pair of planes was made between 1832-1840 according to AWP-IV. It is a fairly scarce mark rating (**) for rarity. The plane is in nearly mint condition showint no signs at all that it was used. They are clearly high-end, well-made planes. Matched American side rabbets are fairly scarce. This pair is in nearly mint condition. Both planes are free of chips or cracks. There are some minor scuffs and dings but nothing major. The blades are both good. Both planes have the owner's mark "J.L. Beckwith". Side rabbets are used to tweak grooves and dados, exactly the same way a Stanley 98/99 pair would. The difference is that the wooden versions are much easier to hold and use. A good pair of planes to use for years to come. $75

It has the nice addition of a palm rest behind the blade, making it a very comfortable plane to hold in the hand. $30

Interesting Pair of Small Ohio Tool Ovolo Planes.

This pair of planes appears to have always been together. They both cut ovolo or quarter-round profiles. The smaller is a 3/8in profile the larger 1/2in. They are both model number 54. The 3/8 is fairly ordinary. The body is in good condition, the blade sharp and ground properly. The 1/2 is special, literally- it is stamped "special" at the toe. The plane was built with the escapement on the left hand side of the body, so it is sprung to the right, the opposite of a normal plane. I suppose this would allow the plane to work in the opposite direction should the user encounter difficult grain. The 1/2in plane is also in good condition with a very sharp blade. Both planes have seen some use, but have lots of life left. They are an unusual pair of planes. Left-over from last month and reduced to $60/pr

There are no chips or cracks and just a few minor scratches. The massive blade is in good condition- ground to the proper angle and fairly sharp. There is some minor pitting that will easily lap out. This is about as big as rabbets come- the size and mass making it great for trimming or tweaking all sorts of joints. $26

A much-used but well cared for plane, it is in good usable condition with a very sharp blade, good nicker with a lot of length left, and a properly functioning depth stop. The nicker wedge has a sideways facing wedge, something I like because it makes it so much easier to withdraw the wedge. The plane body is straight. An owner's mark J. Montcomerie appears at the nose. An excellent user. $35

Very Early Small Cove Molder by W. Egley.

I cannot find this mark in either book on American or British plane makers. This is clearly an early plane, British in my opinion. It has the shorter body, broad, flat chamfers, and rounded wedge finial that is indicative of an 18th century plane. It has at least four distinct owner's marks at the heel and toe. Clearly a well-used plane but still in usable condition. The blade is sharp, properly ground, and has a good clean working face. The profile is a good size for small to medium size cabinet work and moldings. $28

This plane is a wide, shallow quirk ovolo and bead. The body is in good condition- clean with no chips or cracks. There are two old work holes in it. There is a small rough area in the upper part of the escapement. The sole is triple-boxed, one strip having a tight crack. The blade is properly ground and looks little-used. There is one area of light pitting, but it is absolutely usable. The heel is marked with the depth- 5/8in. The profile is the perfect size for case pieces or as part of a casing or other molding. $55

RHS&B RENONOC Jointer Plane.

iRevonoc was a brand name of planes marketed and sold by the Chicago Hardware concern of Hibbard, Spencer, Bartlett, and Co in the late 1800s and early 1900s. The planes they sold were made by Stanley, Union, and others. I believe this plane was made by the Ohio Tool Co based on the fact that the blade is massive- tapered and weighing almost a pound, which is the norm for Ohio planes. The plane is in very good condition overall with a good clean body, good japanning, and nearly perfect knob and tote. The afore mentioned blade is in excellent shape- more than 2 and a half inches of life left and a nice clean back. the mechanical adjusters all work well. It's going to be a great user jointer. $55

Riverside (?) Transitional 16in. Fore Plane.

This is a high-quality fore plane unmarked but for the Anvil logo on the blade and the letter RTO. The only clue I could could come up with is Riverside which was a brand name used by Montgomery Ward on planes made by other manufacturers. This plane is in great shape with a clean wood bottom, nearly perfect japanning, a perfect knob and tote, and awesome blade. The thick, tapered blade is pristine- over 2 1/2 in. of life left with a clean back. It is a fantastic blade. This will be a great user plane for sure. Transitionals are becoming more popular now as users begin to realize how well they work and the excellent compromise they present between the feel of a wooden bench plane and the ease of adjustment of a metallic plane. $30

Buck, London, Large 1 3/8 Table Plane

I've never seen a table plane of this size before, but I'm sure that what it is. It's not a nosing plane- the bottom corners of the sole are angled in to allow the plane to work around the radius of the curve of the drop-leaf joint. It's also British and I don't recall ever seeing a British nosing plane. This plane is in very good condition with a clean body, bold maker's mark at the toe and size mark "inch 3/8" at the heel. The blade is in good condition and matches the sole precisely. An interesting plane by this high-end London plane maker. Left-over from last month and reduced to $14

Interesting User-Made Panel Gauge

I always like to find craftsman-made panel gauges. It's one tool that most woodworkers made them selves and also let them express their creativity. No two are exactly alike. This one is made from some sort of dense, smooth hardwood. I don't think it is boxwood. There is a thumbscrew to hold the head to the beam. The marking end has a nice shape to it. There is a copper wear plate under the marking pin. Panel gauges are essential when marking out the width on a wide board, beyond the reach of a standard marking gauge. A good looking usable panel gauge. $25
