Exceptional Set of Four Matching Disston Handsaws
These four saws were all taken from the same tool chest. The chest was owned by A.J. miller (formerly Meuller), a German immigrant and (apparently) joiner. His chest, full of incredible tools in crisp condition, was bought by a dealer and the contents dispersed. These four saws were all stored in an under-lid storage compartment. I purchased all four with the intention of keeping them together if possible. I believe they are a good working set of saws and will complement each other nicely. The saws all have hang holes in the toe, an artifact of the storage system the saw till used to keep them from sliding when the chest was moved. These holes will not detract from use at all. A description of each saw follows:

Disston No. 8.i This saw is from the & Son era, ca. 1865-70. The plate is 10PPI, clean and straight with a strong nib. The etch is clear and crisp. The handle is a replacement but was probably replaced long ago based on its style. The handle fits well and feels good in the hand.

Disston D-8 26in 10PPI Crosscut Handsaw. This saw dates tot eh 1896-1917 era and has a virtually perfect blade with a mirror finish, crisp etch,and the original grind mark down the skew back just like you see in the photos. The handle is perfect. The teeth are sharp and the plate straight.

Disston D-8 24in Handsaw.This saw has a 24in plate with 12PPI. The plate is bright and shiny with a crisp, bold etch you can read across the room. it's straight and sharp, the handle perfect.

Disston D-8 Thumbhole Rip Handsaw.A big 28in saw with 5 1/2PPI. The plate and handle are perfect. The etch is amazingly clear. The teeth are sharp and ready to go.

I'd like to try to keep all four saws together for a while longer if possible. If they do not sell initially I will consider splitting them up next month. $350 for the set of four saws

Beautiful, Early British Backsaw
This saw is marked "Bewerson, Cast Steel" on the spine. I can't find ant reference to this maker in any of my references. It's almost certainly a British saw from the mid-1800s. The handle is simply gorgeous with super long horns, a bold hook, and nicely carved lamb's tongue loop. The handle is in excellent condition and is tight to the plate. The plate is clean but has a bit of a bend to it (see photo). I'm not a saw smith, but it doesn't look kinked and should be fixable. As-is the saw cuts well, tracking properly without binding. It's a gorgeous saw that should be saved and used. $40

Nice 7/8in. Grecian Ogee with Bevel by R Carter, Troy, NY
Carter worked as a plane maker for almost thirty years from 1833-62. This plane cuts a nice small Grecian ogee with bevel, a popular profile for casings, but this one is on a much smaller scale, perfect for cabinet work. The plane body is excellent with no chips, cracks, and barely any dings or scratches. The blade has some pitting on the back that could be lapped out or remedied with a back bevel. $30

Deep 5/8in side Bead by Greenslade.
This plane cuts a 5/8in wide side bead with a very deep quirk. The plane is in excellent condition overall and is quite heavy, made from exceptionally dense beech. The boding is perfect- straight and complete. The blade is clean and sharp showing no pitting at all and a freshly honed bevel. An excellent worker right out of the box. $26

The body and sole are in excellent condition- clean with no pitting. The blade is in excellent condition overall, full length with no pitting. It has the "138" mark on it indicating it was made in the first quarter of 1938. An outstanding small smoother to put to use. $50

Stanley No. 6C Fore Plane.
A good fore or small jointer from the WWII era. The plane is a type 18 based on the diagonal knurling on the adjuster wheel but the beautiful rosewood, lack of any WWII era shortages, and the 237 on the blade indicate that it was probably made before the war. The plane is in very good condition overall with a clean body, long, sharp blade, and perfect mechanical adjusters. An excellent user. $45

Early Stanley No. 4 Smooth Plane
This is a type 6 made between 1888-92 according to the type study. The plane is in excellent condition overall. The tote is perfect with amazing rosewood grain and color- some of the best I've seen. The knob is solid with equivalent grain and one very slight check. The body is exceptionally clean and has nearly perfect japanning. The mechanical adjusters work perfectly. The blade is sharp, clean and has 1 3/4in of life left. There is no pitting. This will be a fantastic user and a good-looking plane to boot. $45

Stanley No. 5 Sweetheart Jack Plane
This is a type 14 made between 1925-28. The plane is in very good condition overall. It has a very clean body and sole with no rust or pitting and probably 95% japanning- just a little missing from the leading edge of the toe. The rosewood knob and tote are complete with no chips or cracks. The mechanical adjusters work perfectly. The blade is the original SW model and is sharp with no pitting. A fantastic jack plane to put to use. $45

Stanley No. 8C Large Jointer Plane.
This is the big one, 24 inches long with a 2 5/8in wide iron. This is a solid worker, a type 10 ca. 1907-09. The plane isn't the prettiest but it will work well. In the past someone cleaned it up with some sort of rotary device and left some swirls in the cheeks. The rosewood knob and tote are both in excellent condition with no cracks. The japanning is maybe 75%. The blade is is decent shape with close to 2in of life left but it will need a new bevel established to grind out a few nicks. The mechanical adjusters work fine. It will tune up to be a great user at a bargain price. $65

Huge 1/2in Pigsticker Mortise Chisel.
This looks like it's a user-made, or user-modified mortise chisel. It has a massive 1/2in thick blade and equally large steel ferrule. The whole thing looks like some sort of crazy steampunk contraption to me. The blade has a very clean back and sharp bevel. It will be a good worker, ideal for chopping the largest, toughest mortises. $32

Moving Fillister by Summers Varvill.
Summers was part of the Varvill family of planemakers in York. He worked from ca. 1840-67 according to Goodman's book on British Planemakers. The Varvills made some of the highest quality wooden planes in my experience. This moving fillister is smaller than most I find. It is capable of working a rabbet up to 1in wide. This is a very useful plane for cutting rabbets of varying width and depth both with and across the grain. It has an adjustable fence to regulate the width of cut. It is held on place with screws, both of which still hold tight. The dovetailed nicker is in good shape and is held in place firmly. The working corner of the plane's sole is boxed and shows some wear but it's still tight and not chipped as many are. The blade is fairly short, evidence that the plane was used quite a but, but it still has 1in. of length remaining, plenty for years of service. The blade is in excellent shape and quite sharp. The brass depth stop is regulated by turning a steel screw. It has a steel sole soldered to the bottom. The plane body is beautiful with nicely patinated beech showing clear marks of years of use. It was clearly cared for by its former owners. The plane is in very good condition overall and will make a great addition to your working set. $65

Disston No. 8 28in Rip Saw.
The No. 8 is the distant cousin to the No. 7. It has the same design and shape but features an apple handle and spring steel blade. This example is a 28in 5PPI rip saw. The plate is dead straight with its nib. The etch is clear. The apple handle has the 1897-1917 medallion and remnants of the original horseshoe label. The handle has the top horn broken off, the only fault. It can certainly be used as-is but it deserves a proper repair based on the condition of the rest of the saw, and the general scarcity of the No. 8. $40

Moseley and Son, London 5/8 Square Ovolo.
Goodman's book has this partnership working from 1819-30 so this plane is close to 200 years old. It has the broad, flat chamfers typical of a plane from this era. At least three former owners have left their mark on it, yet it remains in very good condition with a clean, crisp body. It cuts a nice small square ovolo, perfect for edge treatments of all sorts. The blade is sharp, clean and in good condition as well. A nice, usable, early plane. $35

Millers Falls No. 5 Medium Eggbeater Hand Drill

1 1/2in Skew Rabbet by Cox & Luckman.
The planemaking firm Cox and Luckman operated in Birmingham from ca. 1839 well into the 20th century. This particular plane carries the London mark and the dragon? trademark. The plane is in good condition overall with a slightly grungy body, but no chips or cracks and a good, sharp blade with a clean back. The planes body isn't warped. Larger rabbets like this are incredibly useful for a number of operations. The mass and high-pitched skew blade lets them power through tough wood going both with and across the grain. These rabbets are capable of both coarse and fine work. This will be a good plane to put to use. $30

Massive R. Groves 28in Rip Saw.
This is a brute of a saw, 28inches long and 4PPI. If the size weren't enough it comes with its own leather sheath so you can strap it to your horse (or motorcycle) to carry it to the job site. This is the second such Groves I've seen with this sort of sheath so it must have been something they offered. The plate is in good shape with a clear Groves mark. The handle appears to be fairly early and features long, crisp horns, a gorgeous lamb's tongue loop, and the "Est 1770" Groves medallion. A huge, usable saw for the biggest jobs. $95

Very Early British Sash Saw.
his is a 14in backsaw likely made in the first quarter to third of the 19th century in England. it has the characteristic flat-bottom "London pattern" handle and the makers's mark stamped in small font right at the bottom of the spine, both aspects are indicative of a saw from the early 19th century. The plate is fairly straight and sharp and cuts pretty well when I tested it. The handle is tight to the plate and in good shape. The top horn has some rounding but it's minor. An exceptionally early, usable British saw. $45

Big, Deep Disston No. 7 26in Rip Saw.
This is a big fine-tooth rip saw from 1896-1917. The blade is 26in long, 6PPI Rip, and a full 2 1/2in deep at the toe. The plate is straight and clean, the etch very light. The beech handle has its top horn rounded off, but is otherwise in great shape. A great fine rip saw to put to use. $40

18in Mahogany Panel Gauge.

Very Early small Cove and Ovolo by Moseley and Hawksworth.
Goodman lists this partnership as working from 1805-07 in London. the plane is in fantastic condition considering its age. The body is extra clean with barely any scratches. There are two owner's marks at the heel. the sole is fully boxed with double-dovetail boxing featuring some beautiful curl towards the toe of the plane. The plane's blade was left in ready-to-use condition by its former owner. The back is polished to a mirror finish and the complex bevel very sharp. It's a beautiful profile in a nice small size. $55

Early Disston No. 7 26in. Handsaw
26in plate that's straight with a nib. The etch is faint but legible. The handle has early split nuts and the 1871-75 medallion. The beech handle has a slightly shortened top horn. The split nuts have never been messed with. There is a small chip out of the plate right at the toe. Only the first tooth is missing. A nice early saw. $45

Exceptionally Rare Disston and Son No. 7 12in. Backsaw
Disston made three Disston-branded backsaws, the common No. 4 with the blued steel back, the No. 5 with the brass back, and the No. 7 with the polished steel back. The 4 and 7 were similar except for the finish on the back and a slightly more ornate handle on the 7. The 7's handle had the double nib on top of the apple handle and double hound's tooth on the bottom. This example is the first I've ever come across. I've also talked to several knowledgeable saw collectors who have also never seen a clearly marked 7. This particular example is in excellent condition. It bears the "Disston and Son" mark, on the spine and plate and the "Aztec style" eagle medallion with the "H. Disston" mark. To me this indicates that the saw was made right around 1865. The plate is 12in. long and 12PPI. The plate is exceptionally clean and 3in deep across its length. The etching is crisp and clear. The beech handle is in good shape except for an old chip missing from the back of the top horn. It's a beautiful example of this rare saw. $175

Unmarked Fixed Sash Plane.

26in handsaw by T.S. Kaye & Sons, Hull.
This British saw was made by Kaye, listed in Goodman as working from 1930-70, but stating they were established in 1848. To me the saw looks like it was made in the 1920s-30s. It has modern Glover-style saw screws. The medallion is the British version of the Warranted Superior design featuring the British royal seal. The handle is exceptional- made from solid rosewood. It's dense and heavy, with exceptional color and grain. It lends the saw a hefty feel in the user's hand. There is a tight crack in the handle at the second screw. It won't move when I apply pressure to open or close the crack so i think it's stable. The plate is 26in long and 2 1/2in deep at the toe. It is straight, with 6 1/2 PPI crosscut. The etch is faint but complete. $35

Grecian Ogee by Burnaham, Amherst.
George Burnham ran a planemaking business in Amherst, MA from 1841- ca. 1860. This plane was likely made between 1844-53. The plane cuts a very nice 1 1/4in wide by 5/8in deep Grecian ogee. the plane is in very good condition overall with a clean body and perfect boxing. The blade is long and clean with some discoloration on the back but no pitting. The blade is ground to match the profile perfectly. It should just take a honing to use it. $45

7/8in. Astragal by H. Hills, Springfield, MA.
Made by Harvey Hills in Springfield from 1845-51. The plane is in good condition overall with no defects on the body. The blade is long and has some pitting on the back. It could be lapped out or back-beveled to make it a moot point. With some work it will be a good plane to use. $20

3/4in Dado Plane.
This unmarked plane is in excellent, ready to work condition. It has a model No. 176 stamped on the heel so it's obviously a commercially made plane, but the maker's mark is too light to read. The blade is clean and sharp, the nicker is long with good spurs. The body is extra-clean and straight, not warped. The steel depth stop is held in place with a screw. A great worked in a highly sought after size. $50

1/2in Dado Plane by Mathieson.
A perfect working dado plane by this Glasgow maker. The plane is in very good condition overall with a nearly perfect blade- sharp and clean with zero pitting. It has a brass depth stop that is regulated with a thumbscrew. The nicker is logn and sharp, held in place with the perpendicular nicker- see photos for what I mean. The body has the normal dings and scratches of use, but it's straight and free of twist. A fantastic worker in a good smaller size. $45

Small 6in Try Square by Tidgewell & Co.
A rare bevel maker reported to have worked ca. 1850 in Middletown, CT. This example has a distinctly British look with its ornate brass work and wide steel blare. The blade is straight and square. The rosewood and brass have nice color. A handy little square for all sorts of layout work. $28

Toted Smooth Plane by A. Howland
This plane has a massive 2 1/4in wide double iron that is nearly 1/4in thick at the business end. The blade is in very good condition with a few tiny pinpoints of pitting on the backside, but is otherwise clean and sharp. These coule be easily lapped out of remedied with a back-bevel which would also have the added benefit of raising the effective cutting angle of the plane from its standard 45 degrees. The plane has an integral closed tote with a long, sweeping tote. The horn is complete and the handle free of chips or cracks. There is an ebony strike button at the toe. There was a crack in the right cheek probably caused by the body shrinking around a set blade. I opened up the mortise a bit to prevent this from happening again and repaired the crack so that it won't move no matter how much pressure I put to it. This will be a good, usable plane with a very comfortable tote. $30

Long Jack Rabbet by Ohio.

Stanley No. 18 Block Plane.
This is one of Stanley's better block plane designs featuring the knuckle-joint lever cap and adjustable mouth. This example is from the Sweetheart era showing the SW mark on both cap and iron. The iron is long with a clean back. All of the mechanical adjusters work perfectly. The lever cap shows some wear and has little original finish. The body has almost perfect japannining and is otherwise clean. It's a perfect worker block plane. $30

Nice Small Ogee by Watkins.
This plane cuts a very pleasing ogee profile about 3/4in wide by 1/2in deep. The plane was made by William Watkins in Bradford ca. 1845-1888. The plane is in excellent condition overall. It's seen some use and was owned by at least two members of the Fisher family. The blade is clean and very sharp with no pitting at all. It's a very desirable profile on a plane that won't take work at all to become a great user. $50

Very Early Thumbnail Molding Plane by Turner and Green.
According to Goodman, this planemaking partnership of Phineas Turner and John Green operated in York prior to 1771. This would put the age of this plane at at least 240 years. Incredibly, the plane is in excellent condition and is still absolutely usable. In fact, the plane's iron is sharp and freshly honed. The back has been polished and has no pitting at all. It cuts a nice 1/2in wide by 5/8in deep thumbnail, perfect for 3/4in stock. It's a fantastic, early plane. $45

Big 26in Rip Saw by Spear and Jackson.
This saw has a 26in 4 1/2PPI plate. The rip teeth are in excellent shape and sharp. It starts out at a less aggressive 7PPI. The plate is exceptionally clean with a bright, shiny finish. The S&J mark is clear. The handle is interesting. It's an American pattern handle from the mid-late1800s. It has four split screws . The medallion is a generic Warranted Superior mark with Washbourne's 1867 patent date. It's possible that the handle is a replacement, albeit an old one. The other possibility is that this saw was made by S&J for the American market. In the mid-1800 several of the larger British dealers made saws for export to America, some custom-stamped with hardware store names. Regardless of its original, the handle is good-looking and tight to the blade. It has a very well-done repair to a crack in the front of the handle where the medallion lives. It will be a great heavy-duty rip saw to use. $65

Millers Falls No. 1 Circular Cigar Shave.
his is an early example that has the 1894 patent date on it. It has almost perfect nickel plating and deep, dark rosewood handles. the mouth is still flat as the day it was made, the opening not increased by a former owner as some are. These shaves are perfect to use in tight spots. Often times they are the only tool that will work for a specific job. This if one of the better examples I've come across. $55

Ohio Tool Co Smooth plane.
This is Ohio's equivalent to the Stanley No. 4. It is 9in long with a 2in wide blade. By the early 1900s, Ohio was one of Stanley's few competitors in the bench plane market. While they didn't have some of the patented features that the Stanley planes used, they were still quality planes. The stand-out feature of the Ohio planes in my opinion is the massive tapered blades they employed. This plane has a 2in blade that is nearly 3/16 thick at the business end. The massive blade has enough mass to soak up a lot of the chatter that the thinner irons experience. This plane has beech knob and tote, both in excellent shape. The mechanical adjusters work smoothly. The body is fairly clean with a few paint splatters and fully 95% japanning. These planes tune up to be excellent users. $28

Natural Belgian Coticule Whetstone
This stone measures 6in long by 1 1/4in wide by almost 7/8in thick. This is a naturally occurring stone with the Belgian blue on one side and the yellow on the other. These are highly prized by straight-razor enthusiasts and are generally considered one of the finest naturally occurring stones. The yellow coticule is said to be equivalent to about 8,000 grit. It measures 1/2 to 1/4in thick on this stone. These stones are mined from one small region and have been revered since Roman times. They are getting scarce and expensive- take a look at some of the online vendors and you'll think the Sigma Power stones are a bargain. This one has good clean faces and no dishing. $75

Millers Falls No. 185a Automatic Push Drill
This example is in near mint condition with all of its original bits. These push drills are indispensable when boring small holes in awkward places.

This example is nearly perfect. It has a very strong spring and moves freely. All of the bits are present. $30

Rare Disston and SON 30in Rip Saw.
This saw is very rare for two factors. First, it's a crisp, clean saw from the &Son era ca. 1865. Saws with this mark were only made for a few years and are thus scarce and desirable. The other factor is the saw's length. It's a full 30in. long and 4 1/2PPI Rip. Disston made rip saws up to 36 inches in length, though anything over 28in is very rare. This is the only 30in saw I've run into in my years collecting saw. This example has a dead straight blade, strong nib, perfect teeth, and a bold, crisp etch that can be read from across the room. The etch and medallion both bear the "& Son" mark. The beech handle is in very good shape with long, full horns and good split nuts that have not been messed with. There is one tight crack on the face of the handle where the medallion is located. I cannot make it open or close so I believe it's tight. That, and some small areas of pitting at the toe are the only flaws on this otherwise rare and excellent saw. $175

2 1/8in. Coffin Smoother by Highgate.
A classic English smoother made by Highgate Tool Co. The blade is 2 1/8in wide with well over 2 1/4in of length left. It is a thick, tapered iron, also featuring the Highgate mark. The blade is extra clean and sharp with not a speck of pitting. The plane body is fairly clean with a bit of paint on the sole, but no chips or cracks. The mouth is fairly tight. It is marked "Warranted, Best English Made" on the top of the plane toward the toe. There is a very small crack in the left cheek, an old wound and tight enough that I can't make it move no matter how hard I twist the blade in the mortise. The wedge holds perfectly tight so this small defect won't affect use at all. An excellent user smooth plane to put to use. $25

Adjustable Sash Plane by JR Gale, Providence, RI
Gale worked on his own in Providence, RI from ca. 1833-36. This plane is an adjustable sash plane which cuts both the rabbet for the glass and a small square ovolo on the other side. There are two wooden thumbscrews on the side which regulate the width of cut. It's in plane body is in good condition overall but the blades have significant pitting. It's a good looking example of a plane of this type and would look good on display, but will take some dedication (or new blades) to make it usable. $15

Set of Six Turning Tools by Buck.
This set of six turning tools were all owned by a Edwar O'Brien sometime in the early 1900s. The set consists of six tools, all but one bearing the Buck mark. The tools all appear to be completely usable and would be a good starter set for most smaller spindle work. The set consists of: 1in long V Tool, 3/8in Flat Scraper, 1/4in Spindle Gouge (awesome figure on the handle of this one), 1/2in fingernail gouge by Charles Buck, 3/8in round-Nose Scraper, and a strange 1/4in steep skew I'll call it. I'm not exactly sure of the use of that last one. It's an excellent working set of some good vintage steel. $60

Vintage Chairmaker's Saw.
his saw has a distinctive form that is typical of a saw used by chairmakers. This saw can be seen in Salaman's Dictionary of Woodworking Tools where it is also described as a Bettye Saw or Jesus Saw. The saw is operated in a vertical motion, with the user gripping both handles and moving the saw up and down. this explains the one long arm and the two handles on one end. The saw has a 28in blade that measures 1/4in wide with 7PPI. The frame looks to be made of mahogany- at least that's my guess. It is a deep red/brown wood with small, open pores and no medulary rays that I can make out. It's fairly light, but strong. The cross member has a nice chamferd octagonal shape to it. This is the first example of a saw of this type I've seen. It's probably usable-certainly sturdy enough, but should probably be preserved as an important artifact. $125

The rosewood has some dings but no chips or cracks. The graduated face of the blade is very clean, the opposite side somewhat dark. $26

Matched Pair of 7/8in Tongue and Groove Planes by Varvill & Sons, York.

Both planes have broad, flat chamfers. The tongue plane has a unique circular escapement that extends through the whole body. This is the only pair I've ever seen like this. Varvill made just about the best wooden planes in my opinions and this pair is no exception. An excellent set for larger T&G work, perhaps suited to that toolbox build you have planned. $50

J. Kellogg, Amherst, MA 3/8in. Dado Plane.
A good user that has seen little use. There are two small holes bored in the body at odd places. These aren't in the right place for a fence. I bet this plane spent most of its life screwed to a display board in a collection. It's back in circulation now and ready to provide years of service. It cuts a 3/8in dado, a useful size for most cabinet work. The body is striaght and had no chips or cracks. The brass depth adjusted is secured with a large screw. The blade and nickers need to be sharpened but are in good shape. The nickers are sharp so you can tough them up easily with a file. This will make an excellent user. $40

Wooden Wooden Planes in 19th Century America, Volume 2 by Ken Roberts
This is one of my favorite books on vintage tools. In it 450+ pages, Roberts discusses the history of the Chapin family of planemakers. This history goes on to describe the plane making industry throughout the 19th century with pictures of planemaking tools, original correspondence and invoices, and amazing photos. The pictures of the original planemaking jigs and fixtures actually used at the Union factory are alone worth the price of the book. Roberts also discusses Solon Rust, an inventor and plane maker who worked for Chapin Roberts went on to buy the contents of the Union factory, including Rust's planemaking toolchest and describes it in detail in this book. It is a wonderful reference for anyone interested in the history of wooden planes or making wooden planes . $50

This plane cuts a 1/2in bead. It is in very good condition overall with a clean body and long, sharp blade. There is a small chip out of the rear of the boxing, the only flaw I can find. $24

Very Early 3/4in Ogee by Brown and Barnard.
Goodman lists Henry Brown and Thomas Barnard as working in Birmingham from 1800-1802. This plane exhibits all of the features of a plane from this era. It has the circular wedge finial, broad, flat chamfers along the top, and it's a bit shorter in stature than later planes. The plane cuts a beautiful curvy flat ogee with an especially flat bottom curve. The plane is in excellent condition overall, save one fault. The body is nearly perfectly preserved with hardly a ding or scratch and crisp edges. The blade is full-length, sharp, and ground perfectly. There is no pitting at all and the back is very clean. The fault is a small chip of boxing missing from the quirk right at the mouth (see last photo for detailed look). Judging by the patina it looks like a very early wound. Even considering the chip the plane is still in amazing condition for being 210 years old. It is a usable plane, despite the chip. The quirk isn't going to be affected by the missing boxing and the plane is otherwise nearly pristine. $50

Flat 1/2in. Ogee by J. Dennison.
John Denison worked in Saybrook, CT from 1840-76. He also worked in an earlier partnership with his brother Lester, also in Saybrook. This plane cuts a nice flat 1/2in ogee, a useful profile for small to medium size work. The plane is made from some interesting beech with a few tight included knots and grain reversals. The knots add a lot of character to the plane but won't affect it in use. The blade is long, sharp, and ground to match the sole perfectly. It's in good condition overall with dings and scratches, but no major fault. A good plane to put to use. $55

By far the best Richardson I've ever had, this one has a crisp, clear, complete etch and a great Richardson pattern apple handle. The skew-back blade is 8PPI crosscut. The plate has a very, very slight bow towards the toe. The saw snaps back to its original line when bent toe-to-heel both ways so the tension is fine and the bow could be smithed out.. Hardly noticeable, but it isn't perfect. The handle has extra-long horns. The top horn has a small tight crack- see photo. Again, the best Richardson hand saw I've had. $60

Massive 1/2in Pigsticker Mortise Chisel by Ibbotson and Peace
This Sheffield edge tool company was a result of the well-known sawmaker Robert Ibbotson marrying into the Peace family of Sheffield, renowned edge tool and file makers. The Ibbotson and Peace firm began around 1845. There is much information here. on the company. This big chisel is over 14in overall. the blade is in good shape- the blade is massive, laminated, and slightly trapezoidal in cross section, typical of a vintage mortise chisel. There is very minor pitting on the back but this will clean up without much effort. It will be a great worker. $35

M. Crannell Apple Screw-Arm Plow Plane.
A very nice plow by this Albany, NY plane maker. The plane is in great condition overall. The body, arms, nuts, washers, and fence are all apple. It has a nice dark patina, no visible grain, and feels really nice in the hand. There is a boxwood wear strip dovetailed into the fence. The screw threads have a few very minor chips here and there,but I'd estimate the threads at 99% or better. The nuts and washers move easily, spinning with little resistance down the length of the arms. The arm brackets have a very pleasing shape with fancy tuned finials on each end. The depth stop is regulated with a brass thumb screw and secured with a knurled brass screw. The only flaws are a tight crack in one washer that was repaired very well with glue, and a crack in the other washer that was repaired with very thin wire- a repair that's almost invisible and very strong. These small defects won't impair use but make this solid applewood plane a bargain. It comes with eight irons in sizes 1-8. I've verified that all of the blades fit in terms of width and thickness and that the wedge will hold them tight. A good-looking, usable plow plane. $150

The frame has about 50% of its original finish. It features the heart-shaped cut-out typical of G-P drills. It is marked on the crank-arm with the G-P logo. An excellent user with a very smooth action. $35

Atkins 20in 5 1/2PPI Rip Saw.
A bizarre configuration to have on a 20in saw. I believe this to be the original filing as the plate is full-depth at the toe at 2in. and the teeth are progressive, starting at about 6 1/2PPI at the toe. This saw is an Atkins No. 29 with the Sheffield mark. The plate is straight and clean, the beech handle nearly perfect. The etch is very light but visible. Everyone wants small rip saws.. $40

Oriole 24in Handsaw.
This is some-one's second line saw, I just don't know whose. The plate is 24inches, 6PPI and has a gorgeous, deep, crisp etch- deep enough to feel with your fingertips. The beech handle is plain, but the horns are complete with no chips. There are some very small, tight checks in the handle that would close up with some linseed oil. The problem with this saw are the teeth- there are many broken off. It will need to be re-toothed to your liking. It's a beautiful saw so I think it's worthwhile to save. $20

Small, Steel Quirk Ogee Project Plane
This is a good-looking plane and could be fairly early. The toe is marked C.E. Litchfield which I can't find in any reference. The plane's body is shorter and the chamfers on the hand-hold very wide and flat, both indicators of early 18th century planes. Without a documented maker's name, this is all just speculation, of course. The plane's body is very clean and with no chips, cracks, or blemishes. The profile is an exceptionally steep quirk ogee. The blade is useless and will need to be replaced if you want to use it. Otherwise it's a nice plane to display. $20

There is a very slight wave in the plate towards the toe- out by no more than an eighth or so. It's not a big deal, definitely something that won't affect use, but it's not perfectly straight so it bears mentioning. The plate is 24in long and 5PPI Rip- as marked at the heel and measured.The beech handle has extra-long horns that fit the user's hand very nicely. There are no chips or cracks in the handle.

Matched set of five Smaller Side beads by Sandusky.
This set of five planes has always been together. They share the same owner's mark a "Wm Bourke" at the toe and the same overall appearance and patina. The sizes included are 1/8, 3/16, 1/4, 3/8, and 3/4. The four smaller sizes are especially useful sizes for all sorts of cabinet work and general furniture use. The 3/4 is a strange profile, a very shallow bead, almost more like a quirked ovolo. All of the planes are in usable condition. All show some amount of use. The 1/8 is nearly perfect. The 3/16 shows a little more wear, still not much, and it has a chip out of the non-escapement side of the mouth, not a show-stopper by any means. The 1/4 has seen the most use and has its mouth opened up a bit, bit it's still got a heck of a lot of life left. The 3/8 looks little used as does the 3/4. I'm confident all five will be usable. It's a nice matched set of planes. $145

Fantastic Vernon & Co. 28in Rip Saw
One of the nicest saws I've found, this was probably a mark used by Wheeler Madden and Clemson. The saw has the distinct Holden patent handle with the thumb notch intended for two-handed ripping. The handle could be walnut or mahogany, possibly rosewood. It's a gorgeous handle with incredibly long, sweeping horns. The handle is perfect with all original finish and barely a scratch. It is connected to the plate with five extra-fancy domed saw screws each with embellishments on both sides. There is a polished (possibly nickeled ) plate on the front of the handle. The plate is 28in and 5 1/2PPI Rip. It is almost perfectly straight with just a slight bow towards the toe. The saw snaps back to its original line when bent toe-to-heel both ways so the plate is tensioned properly and the slight bow could easily eb smithed out.. The plate is fairly clean with a bold etch: Vernon & Co. Cast Steel, No. 10. The nib is intact, the teeth are fairly sharp. A gorgeous saw.. $110

Excellent Beech Spokeshave by The Midland, Sheffield,
This is a classic wooden spokeshave made by midland. It has a 2 1/2in wide blade.

PEXTO Samson 8010B Brace.
The PEXTO Samson is my favorite brace ever made. It's just as well-built and heavy-duty as the North Brothers Yankee but the ratchet is superior (and it doesn't gum up) and it's just a better-looking brace with its nickeled frame and cocobolo handle and pad. This is the "B" revision- there were at least six versions. This one has a 10in sweep which is the best general-purpose size. The pad and handle rotate freely, the chuck closes tight and the ratchet works perfectly in both directions. Just about the best brace you can find. $45

Interesting Krenov-Style Bench Plane.
This is an interesting user-made Krenov-style wooden plane measuring 18in long with a 1/4in. iron. The double iron was made by Hock. The plane is well-made, the glue joints are exceptionally tight and nearly invisible. I don't know what type of wood this is, but it's very dense and heavy, and a beautiful deep, rich red. Perhaps bloodwood. The plane is in good shape and should be a good worked. The wedge holds tight but it's a bit crude and needs some refinement. It should be a good worker for some special task, perhaps as a dedicated jointer or shooting board plane for thin work. The hock double iron in this plane retails for $42 on its own.

The mouth is adjustable to stop down the throat aperture. The knuckle joint is about the most comfortable design ever made. This example is in excellent condition overall. The blade is full-length with 1 1/4in of life left. The back has been flattened and polished to a mirror finish (see photos). The body is extra-clean and has no rust or pitting. The thin area behind the mouth has no cracking at all which is a common flaw in these planes. The plane bed has 99% japanning. This is a Sweetheart era tool with both the blade and lever cap bearing the SW logo. The only demerit is a small hang hole drilled in the bed toward the heel. An excellent block plane to use. $70

Makita Horizontal Wet Grinders.I have two Makita wet grinders/sharpeners for sale today. This machine is one of the best options for both initial grinding and honing of all sorts of edge tools. I've had one for about ten years and it's a fantastic machine. It's useful for both hand and power tools. This is about the only way I've found to accurately and easily grind and hone my planer and jointer knives. The blade holding jig and adjustable table make it dead simple. It's also and excellent machine for grinding bevels on chisels, plane blades, molding plane blades, and other edge tools. It's an easy machine to use because you never have to worry about overheating the edge and loosing the steel's temper. In my opinion the tool's greatest utility is in flattening the backs of edge tools like chisels and plane blades. It's the fastest and most effective method I've found. The machine's motor is powerful enough that even a wide 2 3/4in blade won't bog it down when flattening its back. I like to use mine on my thin kitchen knives as well.

The machine is also very easy to make custom jigs and adapters for, much like the Tormek, but at a fraction of the cost.David Smith has a fantastic article here on all sorts of jigs he's built for his. Using Google to search for "makita 9820-2" will reveal a number of other ideas and modifications. It is a bit messy but once you get the hang of adjusting the shield and dialing-in the water flow, it's not too bad. These machines are still made today and replacement parts and additional wheels are available from a number of retailers. Highland Hardware has a copy of the owner's manual and some tips on using it here: http://www.highlandwoodworking.com/makita9820-2usersguide.aspx New and complete these retail for $325.00 on Amazon and Highland



Maktia No. 1
This machine is absolutely complete and has seen little or no use. The inside pan is exceptionally clean. I've tested it and the motor is strong. The adjustable table has no rust or wear at all. The 1,000 grit King Waterstone wheel has a few nicks from (I presume) stuff being stored on top of it, but it's still full-thickness. $225

Makita No. 2
This machine was used a bit. I cleaned it up a bit and tested the motor which is strong and runs well. The wheel is a coarse 60grit King waterstone. It is almost full thickness and has no cracks or chips. It's a good choice for establishing bevels and regrinding chipped tools. This grinder is missing its tool rest and knife holder. It's still quite useful as-is for sharpening knives, edge tools using a jig, for flattening backs, etc. If you look at the jigs on David Smiths' page, none of them use the tool rest so it's not a critical part, however, replacement rests and knife holders can easily be found online. $125

Small 14in. Wooden Jack Plane.
This plane was probably made for a school shop class or vocational school. The plane is razee style with the lower tote. The tote is sized for a small hand, much smaller than mine. It would be a good fit for someone who can comfortably hold a No. 3 bench plane tote with all four fingers- it's about that size. The tote is complete and has a good horn. The plane has a brass plate forward of the throat with the number 30 on it. Perhaps this was the number of the bench it belonged to or to track the tool as it was signed out by a student. The plane body has lots of dings but no signs of outright abuse. It accepts a 2in blade. It currently has a very early Stanley double iron with the circular logo. I'll include a thicker laminated blade, which I consider more appropriate for this plane, if you'd like. It's a good, usable jack plane for a younger user or someone with smaller hands. $40

Very nice Fenced Coachmaker's Router by Routledge, Birmingham
Most of the coachmaker's routers I've found have been unmarked and fairly crude. This example is a great example of a professionally made router. The end grain of the right handle is clearly marked with the Routledge mark. The beech body is nicely shaped and has no chips or cracks. The sole has been plated with iron to make it wear-resistant. There is a fence which rides in a slot in the left handle to regulate the width of cut. The fence's face is slightly radiused to allot it to work curves. It is equipped with a 1/8in. cutter with a long tang. It's a good-looking, usable router. I see it having possible uses in string inlay. $45

Simonds No. 337 Sawyer's Hammer.
This is a fairly rare hammer, used by sawyers to set saw teeth. The head is about 8oz with an octagonal head on one end and a slot to accept a saw tooth in the other. This was probably used on circular or lrge crosscut saws. The hammer head is clean, though a bit dark, with a clear maker's stamp. It is perfectly tight to the handle. The hickory handle is in good shape. It's the original handle, sporting a "337" stamp at the end. It's a rare piece in very good condition. $35

Stanley 9 1/2 Block Plane
I'm not sure what era this plane is from- it has the ca. 1880 style lever cap with the lever between the cap and iron. The iron has a SW mark. It's possible it is an early plane with a replaced iron. Either way it'll be a good user. The blade is long and sharp with no pitting at all. The adjusters all work well, the mouth piece sliding easily. It's a good general-purpose block plane. $

Excellent 3/4in Square Ovolo by T. Wheeler, Reading.
Thomas Wheeler worked in Reading from 1790-1826. This plane is in fantastic shape for being somewhere around 200 years old. It cuts a square ovolo 3/4in deep and 3/4in wide (including the fillet) so it's perfect for use with 3/4in stock. The plane is in excellent shape. It shows signs of light use, but not much. The body is very clean, the mouth extra tight. The blade is still wicked sharp and very clean. Someone applied an auxiliary fence to the side to give it a little more bearing surface. This is nice as it makes it even easier to hold the plane at the correct spring angle. A beautiful early molding pane that's will still be an excellent tool to use some 200 years after it was made. $40

Beautiful 6/8 Quirked Torus bead and Cove Molding Plane by D. Copeland.
Daniel Copelant apprenticed under Leonard Kennedy and went on to produce planes both on his own and in various partnerships from 1820 to his death in 1854. He is noted for joining Hermon Chapin and forming what would become the Union factory. This plane could have been made while he was working on his own or possibly by Chapin after he bought out Copeland and continued to use the Copeland mark. The plane is very well made and features the extra-curvy complex profiles that Kennedy and Chapin are known for. The plane cuts a deep, bold 6/8 quirked torus bead with cove. The plane is in very good condition overall. The body is clean and has no cracks. The boxing is complete is straight. The blade is fantastic- perfectly clean and quite sharp. It's a pretty plane on its own and will be a good worker. $70

Interesting Razee Smoother by Child.
J.E. Child was a plane maker in Pvodence, RI from 1850-80. This plane is a 2 1/8in razee smoother with a nice open tote. The plane is in excellent shape with a crisp body showing no chips or cracks, and a perfect tote. The blade is by Moulson Bros. and is in similarly excellent condition. It has over 2 1/4in of life left. It's wicked sharp and just massive- close to 3/16in thick at the business end. The interesting thing about the plane is the adjustable mouth piece which to me looks original to the plane. The mouth piece slides along an angles way and can stop down the throat to almost nothing. It's held in place with an old screw (flat tip rather than pointed) which secures the mouth piece. It's an excellent plane to put to use and should perform very very well. $60

Matched Pair of Hollow and Round Molding Planes By Casey.
This pair of planes has always been together- they bear the same owner and maker's marks. The planes are size 16 and cut an arc with a radius of 1 1/8in. The planes are in very good condition overall. They have long blades that are clean and extra-sharp. The bodies are likewise clean. The only defect is a tight small crack in the non-escapement side of the round down towards the mouth where the wood is the thinnest. This won't affect the planes in use. They are a good working pair of hollow and round molding planes. $30

Steve Knight Small Smooth Plane
Steve Knight made innovative, high-performance wooden planes from ca. 2001-2008. His planes were different from almost everything on the market. They are based on the Krenov design but with a couple of interesting changes. First, he used an angled adjustable mouth block that could be lowered and levelled-off as the sole wears in order to keep the mouth insanely tight. He also added adjustable set screws to the sides of the plane through the plane's cheeks to help keep the blade aligned. His planes were laminated and used crazy thick, hard irons. This plane is made from Padouk with an Ipe sole, mouth insert, and strike block at the heel. The blade is a solid 1 1/2in wide, 1/4in thick slab of O-1 tool steel. It is incredibly hard and holds an edge well. The plane was made in July of 2003 (as stamped on the heel) and must have sat idle for the past eight years as there was some light rust on the iron. The iron cleaned up perfectly and has no evidence of putting. The body is perfectly clean and shows no signs of use at all. It's a good-looking high-performance plane. $90

The chuck and ratchet work perfectly and the handle and pad spin freely. A great brace to use. $45

The plane is in very good shape with a good blade and beech body showing no chips or cracks. The blade is bedded at York pitch. It's a nice small, compact size, perfect for small smoothing jobs. $25

Unique CJ Kimball 9in Drawknife.
Kimball made edge tools in various locations in New Hampshire throughout the late 1800s and into the early 1900s. This drawknife has a clear Kimball mark and a 9in blade. The unique feature is a hollow ground along the bevel edge of the blade. This looks similar to the hollow ground into the backs of Japanese chisels to facilitate sharpening. I've never seen this on a drawknife. The handles are tight and complete. The back of the blade is clean with no pitting. It's a good, usable drawknife. $26

Stanley 42W Saw Set.
The 42X may be the most popular and easiest to use, but the 42W is favored by many experienced saw sharpeners. The 42W has the ability to limit the amount of set by adjusting a knurled screw below the plunger. The other sets rely on even pressure from the user's hand to apply the right amount of set to each tooth. This example is in excellent condition. It's a Sweetheart era tool with most of the original Stanley decal remaining on the handle. Almost 100% of the original japanning remains. The anvil is perfectly clean. The spring is strong and the plunger moves easily. A great sawset to put to use. $25

1in. Skew Rabbet by H. Fox.
I can't find any mention of this maker in either Goodmans' book on British planemakers, or Elliot's book on American makers. This is the third plane I've found with this mark, all of which have been of high quality. Fox was either an undiscovered professional or a very talented amateur. The plane is in excellent shape with a nice dense beech body with no warp or twist. The mouth is tight, the blade is very clean and very sharp. It's been used, as evidenced by the hammer marks at the heel, but it was well cared for. A good user in a very desirable size. $30

Early 10in Open Handle Dovetail/Tenon Saw
This saw is in very good condition overall. The plate is 10in long and 2 1/4in deep. It is straight with no rust or pitting at all. The handle is beech. It has a nice curvy design with long horns. There are no chips or cracks and the handle is tight. The medallion is a sunken style Warranted Superior design. The plate does have a partial etch. I can clearly make out "MII***" and then "Philadelphia, Warranted". I can't find any matching makers in Schaffer's book on American saw makers. I believe this was a hardware store mark. I don't think the saw is a Disston. The medallion and handle style are all wrong. The saw's handle and the font used in the etch very closely match several Harvey Peace handsaws I have in my collection. My bet is that this is a Peace saw custom-etched for a hardware store, as many of their saws were. It's a good-looking, usable saw. $50

Exceptional Disston and Sons 10in Back Saw.
This could be the nicest example I've found- the plate is 10in long, 2 1/2in deep, and 15PPI. The plate is dead straight and very clean. The etch is perfect- deep and bright. The back retains much of its original bluing. The apple handle has long horns. There is a tiny chip from the top horn, the only fault I can find. The medallion indicates it dates to 1917-1940. An excellent user for fine work. $55

PEXTO SAMSON 10in Heavy-Duty Brace
The Pexto Samson is my favorite brace, period. A lot of folks like the Yankee braces, which are fine, but the Samson combines extra heavy duty construction with beautiful materials. The frame is nickel plated, the pad and handle made from colorful cocobolo. They are heavy duty braces with ball bearing pads and chucks. The ratchets are also heavy duty and hold up very well over time- I don't think I've ever found one jammed. This example is a SAMSON-D, made ca. 1925. The cocobolo is in excellent shape and has very nice grain. The chuck and jaws are perfect. It's an excellent brace for all sorts of work. $40

Massive Quirk Ogee with Bevel Molding Plane.
This is a huge plane with a 2in. wide profile that runs about 1 1/4in. deep. It is marked "Oliver" at the toe which is not a documented maker. The blade is sharp and clean and properly ground. A former owner lined the bed with a strip of leather cut exactly to match the plane's profile. This has the effect of closing down the plane's mouth considerably. The plane has been used but taken good care of. I think it will have lots of life left in it. The iron was made by Ward. This was a popular profile for casing moldings. It has a lot more curves in it than anything you'll find at Home Depot today. $45

The plane is heave due to the dense wood. I believe it's live oak. It has striking swirling grain on the sides and oak-like ray fleck on the sole. It's a nice looking, usable plane. $25

Matched Set of Three Large Torus Beads by Moseley, London
Moseley was one of the preeminent British planemaking companies, operating for over a hundred years from the 18th century well into the 20th. These three planes have always been together, bearing the same maker's mark, owner's stamp "SS", and overall patina and look. The planes cut Torus beads of size 5, 6, and 7. The planes are all in very good conditon. All show some use but have been cared for and still have lots of life left. The beech bodies are clean and free or cracks of chips. The boxing on all three is crisp and straight. The blades are good. An interesting, usable, set of planes. $75

Early Eclipse No. 77 Sawset.
This is an earlier version of the well-known 77 sawset. I believe it's brass, certainly not cast iron. It features the two-part plunger movement, the first to secure the plate the second to apply the plunger to the tooth. The set is in excellent working order with a strong spring and clean anvil. A good set to use on almost any saw. $20

Beautiful Eurpoean Horned Smooth Plane.
This plane has the classic Eastern European form. It is stamped "Austria" on the heel. The blade is unmarked. The body is some dense hardwood, perhaps beech. It has an applied sole of what I believe is hornbeam. The plane has a tight horn, carved to fit the right hand of the user. The escapement is nicely carved with a heart-shape relief and some interesting carved symbols. I believe these are the trademark clamp stamps of the Johann Weiss & Sohn Co. The wedge is similarly ornamented. The blade is 1 7/8 wide, has over 2in. of life left, and it's in great shape, sharp and polished. The plane's mouth is super tight, probably a few thousandths. One of the best examples I've ever found. It's bound to be a great user. $45
