TH Witherby 1in Socket Firmer Chisel.
Here's a strange one. The blade is almost perfect- the back is polished to a mirror finish and the bevel is fairly sharp. The handle looks like it was permanently affixed to the socket by means of a screw through the top. Strange enough, it looks almost well done enough that it could be original. The handle has some sloppy red finish applied, likely an owner's mark. It will make a good user, regardless.

The blade is thick and laminated. The back is clean with no pitting, showing a clear lamination line. The bevel is fairly sharp and has no chips so it will sharpen up easily.

Big American Mortise Chisel.
This is an early 3/8in mortise chisel. The maker's mark is extremely faint but I believe it's a Merrill made in NH in the mid-1800s. The blade is stout with a laminated, forge-welded, steel edge. The lamination is clearly defined with no evidence of separation. There is minor pitting on the back but it won't take much effort to putit back to use. It's a long chisel measuring 11in from the bevel to the top of the socket. It will sharpen up well and make a good user.

Greenlee is an underapreciated edge tool maker. They began making tools in the mid-1800s and continued making quality tools well into the 1900s.

Union Tool Co. 1in. Socket Frimer Chisel.

Once I stripped it I was left with a nearly mint chisel with just a tiny bit of pitting at the top of the socket and one tiny patch of shallow pitting at the edge. It's almost mint. There is a metal ring at the top of the handle to help it absorb the worst abuse. The tool is in uncanny condition considering it's close to 100 years oid. It measures over 15in overall. It will be an excellent user.

Stanley No. 40 1in Bevel-Edge Chisel.
This heavy-duty Stanley wood chisel dates to the early 1950s. Once relegated to the junk bin, some woodworkers have started to appreciate these chisels for what they are- high-quality edge tools capable of fine and rough work. The steel used in these chisels is extremely tough. The steel cap and composite handle can take a beating. Many of these are found in terrible condition, but this one is in very good shape. The 1in wide chisel blade is very sharp with a perfectly clean back. The steel cap shows hammer marks, but it's not deformed. The handle is free of chips and has a clear Stanley mark. These are great chisels to use for tough jobs or to keep in your outdoor kit.

Outstanding Witherby 2in Bevel-Edge Paring Chisel.
This is an extra-long paring chisel made by The Winsted Edge Tool Works in Winsted, CT. It bears the TH Witherby mark on the front, and the Winsted mark on the back. The chisel measures over 15in long overall, yet it is a fine paring chisel, not a firmer or framing chisel. It tapers in thickness from more than 3/8 in at the socket to less than 1/8in at the bevel. It's intended for the finest work, not whomping on with a mallet. The blade is in excellent condition. The back has no pitting at all.

This is an interesting hollow auger design capable of cutting round tenons from 1/4 to 1 1/4in. The adjusting mechanisms work perfectly, the depth stop is present, and the blade is in good shape with lots of life left. The original japanned finish is all but gone, perhaps 10% remains, but a nice dark patina has taken its place. It will work well.
$25 This Item Has Been Sold



Exceptional Hollow Auger by Hargrave/ Cin. Tool Co..
This hollow auger was branded with the Hargrave brand and made by the Cincinnati Tool Co. The tool is in exceptional condition with no rust. All of the moving parts move freely and show clean, shiny mating surfaces. Almost all examples I find have some amount of rust on them and many are completely seized. The original depth stop is present. The blade is long and in excellent shape. This model has the advantage of two blade adjusting mechanisms: it is held in place with one screw which allows for adjustment of projection. There are also two set screws under the blade that allow for adjusting the angle of attack. This hollow auger will cut round tenons from 1/4in to 1 1/4in. It will make a great user.

Millers Falls No. 70 Hand Drill.
According to OldToolHeaven, the No. 70 was made from 1938-44 to commemorate the company's 70th anniversary. This example is in excellent condition. I'd call it near mint but it's missing a few flecks of paint on the gear. The drill operated incredibly smooth. It has a double pinion drive and a chuck that can hold bits from 0-1/4in. The hollow mahogany handle is prefect. There are six original fluted bits included. These are perfect as well with all original finish. It's a perfect, usable hand drill.
$35 This Item Has Been Sold



Millers Falls Unmarked Eggbeater Hand Drill.
This is an interesting hand drill likely made by Millers Falls or perhaps Goodell Pratt close to the 1939 acquisition. The drill has a stout hardwood handle that can be braced against the body. The drill frame is very similar to a Millers Falls No. 2 with the "little railroad car wheel" that MF used in the late 1800s and early 1900s. The body is exceptionally clean. I initially thought it was repainted but the nickel-plated areas: the handle, collar beneath the chuck, and the outer ring of the gear, are all perfect and shiny. Judging by this, I'd say that the drill is just in excellent condition. The gear action is very smooth. The chuck works perfectly. It accepts bits from 0-1/4in. It is in excellent working condition.
$40 This Item Has Been Sold



Pecks Patent Auger Handle with Five Bits.
The auger handle was made by Peck, Stowe, and Wilcox (PEXTO) in Southington, CT. It is made of maple with iron fittings. The hardware and clamp is iron. The handle is stamped with the patent date March 20, 1888. The handle is in good shape with no cracks. Four of the bits are clean and shiny with perfect screws, cutters, and lips. There is some very light surface rust here and there. These four bitswere found with the handle. They have owner's marks but no clean maker's mark that I can see. The sizes are 1in, 1 1/4, 1 1/2, 2in. I'm also including a similar 1 1/4in Riverside bit because it fits. It's much darker, but it will work. All five bits have threaded tangs. There is a brass but that is screwed onto the tang to hold it tightly in the handle. These larger bits are perfect for boring into both green and dry woods. The lead screws aren't too fast so they should work well even in hardwoods. This set of handle and bits takes up a lot less room than having a set of T augers around.

Excellent Millers Falls No. 5 Eggbeater Hand Drill.
This is one of the best Millers Falls drills I've come across. It's in excellent condition, mechanically perfect, with just a few flecks of black paint missing from the frame preventing it from being called "mint". The gears are silky smooth, as is the three-jaw chuck. The main gear has perfect red paint. The wood on the handles is also perfect. There are six original fluted bits included, all with their original bluing. This one likely dates to the 1935-65 era. It would be hard to find a better example.
$45 This Item Has Been Sold



Russell Jennings Expansive Bit.
This is a RJ Solid Head Expansive Bit made by Stanley. It has the Stanley no. 71 on the original plastic pouch. It will bore holes from 3/4 to 3in using one of the two included cutters. The diameter of cut is dialed in with a screw making precise adjustment easy. It is in mint condition. Expansive bits like this are very useful for boring holes larger than the normal auger bit sets allow, and for drilling odd-size holes.

Nice Adjustable Hollow Auger by Stearns. .

$35 This Item Has Been Sold



Small Spoke Pointer.
This tool is marked on the square tang but the first line, which would have included the maker's name, is not legible. All I can see is "Best Cast Steel, USA". It has a 2 1/4in wide opening and tapers to almost zero. The blade is 1 3/4in wide. It is in excellent working order with a sharp, clean blade. A good user spoke pointer.
$24 This Item Has Been Sold



Yankee No. 75 Push Brace IOB.
This tool was made by North Brothers in Philadelphia, PA before the 1946 Stanley acquisition. The push brace accepts square-tang auger bits and other bitstock tools. The pad is pumped to spin the chuck. It results in a fairly high-speed tool and a decent amount of torque. It has a switch that allows the push brace to be locked, or work in forward or reverse. It's ideal for quickly drilling small holes or driving screws. The tool is in near mint condition with perfect nickel plating and wood. There is a tiny dark patch on the chuck where some surface rust had appeared. The box is complete and the label completely legible. The corners are blown-out and one was taped up. It's a fun tool to use and you won't find a better example than this one.

North Brothers Yankee NO. 1555 Five-Speed Breast Drill.
This ingenious tool holds five different modes in its small but heavy-duty transmission. By moving a sliding sleector the user can choose between five modes- plain, left-handed and right-handed ratchet, right-handed double in wich the chuck turns to the right no matter which way the handle is turned, and locked which holds the chuck tight. It is a heavy duty drill capable of holding bits up to 1/2 shank. The selector moves easily and all modes operate perfectly. The handles have almost perfect finish. Meant for heavy-duty work, these were often used hard and are found today in rough condition. This one is in above average condition and will make an excellent user.

Beautiful, Unmarked 10in. Brace.
This brace is unmarked but the handle has the distinct look of a Davis Tool Co. brace. It's a high-quality, well-made brace. The handle and pad are made of some sort of exotic hardwood- rosewood or colobolo perhaps. Both have beautiful grain and color patterns. The ratchet works perfectly. The pad and handle are tight and rotate easily. It's a beautiful, fully functional 10in brace. Perfect for general purpose use.
$35 This Item Has Been Sold



PEXTO 10in Brace. .
This brace is marked with the P. S. & W. mark and a model number that looks like 1003, but that doesn't equate to anything I can find in the PEXTO catalogs I have. It looks to me like a No. 7010 with the box ring ratchet, extra-knurled chuck, and colobolo handle and pad. PEXTO made the best working (and prettiest) braces in my opinion, and this one is no exception. The cocobolo is outstanding with great color and grain. Both the handle and pad are tight with no sloop but rotate freely. It's a heavy-duty brace with ball bearing pad and head. The ratchet works perfectly in either direction. The frame and chuck retains most of its original nickel plating. A gorgeous, usable brace in a good general purpose size.

North Brothers Yankee No. 2010 Brace.
This is a Bell Systems brace marked with the North Brothers, a Div of Stanley mark, indicating it was made right after the 1946 acquisition of NB By Stanley.

This is a great heavy-duty brace and the favorite of many woodworkers.

Unique Rosewood  Panel Gauge.
I've had the pleasure of owning this panel gauge for the past couple of years but it's time to let it go to make some room. It is a beautiful tool, well-made and unique in my experience. The beam is made of a deep red/brown rosewood. The head is made from the same wood. There are three keyed wedges fit into the head that ride the beam, keeping the head square. These keys are made of a lighter hardwood which I cannot identify. There is a brass thumbscrew to lock the head to the beam. The marking tip is a long, tapered blade. It is fit into a wear plate made of ivory or bone . The wear plate is dovetailed into the rosewood beam and looks lovely with the contrasting colors. It is unmarked save an owner's mark F.W. MACY stamped once on the beam. It is a unique, beautiful gauge in excellent working condition. You will not find another like it.

Early 3/16in Side Bead by Mutter..
George Mutter was an 18th century planemaker and busienssman working in London from 1776-1799. This plane likely dates to the earlier part of that timeframe based on the wide chamfers and circular wedge finial. It has its blade bedded at an incredibly high angle, around 60 degrees. The blade is in decent shape with a hint of scattered pitting on the back. The boxing has a few chips but it's intact and straight. This 210+ year old plane still works. Without doing any work on the iron I was able to cut a nice bead on a test piece. Using a tool this old is a cool experience.

Pair of "Special" Molding Planes by Sandusky.
Sandusky made a lot of special purpose planes. I've found left-handed ogees, planes that were used for inserting weather stripping, and other oddities. These planes are prime examples. One cuts a 3/16 wide grove 3/8in away from the adjustable fence. The other plane cuts a 3/4in rabbet 1/4in from the edge but leaves a 1/4in lip at the edge. I welcome any suggestions as to what these planes were used for. Both are in excellent condition with no damage and good blades.

Interesting Square Rabbet with Nickers and Depth Stop.
This is effectively a dado plane, but with a design I've never seen before. The 7/8in wide blade is square to the mouth. There are nickers dovetailed into both sides ahead of the iron. There is an adjustable depth stop on the right hand side. Unlike a dado plane, this plane could be used as a rabbet plane both with and across the grain. The depth stop would provide a high degree of accuracy in any capacity. It is unmarked, save an owner's mark LEL at the hee. Clearly professionally made, this is an interesting, usable plane.

Nice Small British Moving Fillister.

The blade is sharp and in great shape. The depth stop works perfectly. The nicker is long and sharp. The wedge was missing when I found the plane. I made a replacement out of rosewood.

Unmatched Pair of Working Snipe Bill Planes.

Fellows who Goodman lists as making planes ca. 1861 in Birmingham. The right handed plane looks a bit earlier. It has a maker's mark "Minzies" on the toe. Goodman lists this mark but offers no information on it. The boxing has some chips. Both planes have excellent blades. Most importantly, the boxed soles on both planes are dead straight. The leading edge of the snipe's sole is so thin that even a minuscule amount of twist or warp will make it out of line, leaving the plane virtually useless. Both of these planes are dead straight. They will both be excellent workers.

Extra-Crisp 1in Skew Rabbet by Nesbitt of Manchester.
This plane was made by or for John Nesbitt Ltd. 42 Market St., Manchester. This mark is not listed in Goodman's book but a brief wed search reveals that Nesbitt was a merchant in various types of tools in the late 1800s and early 1900s. I would assume that this plane was made for Nesbitt by one of the UK's larger plane makers. . The plane is very well made and in exceptional condition with crisp edges and an excellent blade.

Early Adjustabel Ogee Plane by John Green.
John Green and sons established one of the largest planemaking companies in late 18th century England. Based out of York, they operated from 1768-1808. This plane is at least 200 years old, perhaps older. Considering its age the plane is in amazing condition. The body is crisp and clean with hardly any scratches. There are some hammer marks at the heel, showing it was used quite a bit. The plane cuts a nice steep ogee. There is a wide flat at the bottom and a removable fence that can expose more or less of the flat, allowing the ogee to be cut a specific distance from the edge of the board. It looks similar to a handrail plane but on a much smaller scale. It's the first plane I've come across with this configuration. The ogee profile is just under 1/2in deep and as wide as you want to make it. The blade is still in good shape. Overall the plane is in solid user condition and should hopefully last another 200 years.

This is widely regarded as Stanley's best block plane. It has a 1 5/8in blade bedded at a low angle of attack. It features an adjustable mouth and the popular knuckle-joint lever cap. This plane has a flaw common to most of the 65s I find- there is a hairline crack in the thin casting in back of the mouth. This plane is still absolutely usable and should perform perfectly. It is in otherwise excellent condition with nearly perfect japanning and nickel. The crack makes it much less valuable to collectors, but it will be a fine worker. As always, if the plane fails to work well, just send it back for a refund.

Lie-Nielsen Large Shoulder Plane.
This is Lie-Nielsen's version of the classic British shoulder plane made by Record and, earlier, by Preston. This is the best shoulder plane ever made, in my opinion, holding its own against the best infill shoulder planes. I've had one for more than 10 years and rely on it heavily for trimming tenons and other joints. The plane's mass gives it the momentum to easily trim end grain and the adjustable mouth allows it to take the finest cuts regardless of wood. The machining is so precise the joint between the body and sliding mouth piece is nearly invisible. I accepted this plane as a trade from a customer. It has seen no use and still has the original factory grind on the blade. The original box is included. $250 list price.

Early Sargent 409C Smooth Plane.
This is an early "type 3" Sargent No. 409 smooth plane made between 1891-1910. It has a corrugated sole which, according to Heckel's book, means it was made after 1907 which narrows down it's age considerably. It has the Feb 3, 1891 patent date on the lateral adjuster and the numbers 409 414 under the lever cap indicating it's a Sargent for sure. The blade is marked "Fulton Tool Co.". The blade is long and clean. The knob and tote are in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. The knob is especially nice with beautiful grain and color and the bead around the base found on early Sargent planes. The adjusters work perfectly. Japanning is 95% or better. The only flaw is a tiny chip out of the back of the mouth, a result of the thin castings Sargent used on these planes. It won't affect use. It's a good-looking, usable plane.

Steve Knight 2in 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 plane has a 2in. iron, measures 7 1/2in long, and weighs in at about 3lbs. I think the outer wood is padouk. The sole is Ipe. The blade is bedded at 47 degrees.The plane was made in Sept of 2006 (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

It's a very comfortable handle to hold, though it's a bit small so if you've got big mits it's probably not the plane for you. The handle is perfect with no chips or cracks. there are some checks at the toe. The blade is really something- It's a massive 2in. tapered iron that is over 3/16in thick at the bevel end. It's one of the thickest I've seen. It is exceptionally clean with no pitting and over 2 1/4in of life left. It's pretty sharp and may have the factory grind on it. The downside is the mouth which is wider than I'd like. It will work as-is or would be an ideal candidate for a mouth patch.

Screw Arm Plow Plane by Varvill.
The Varvill family made planes in York for over 100 years from 1793-1904 according to Goodman. This plane was made in the later part of that timeframe, from 1873-1904 based on the "&Sons" mark. Varvill is perhaps my favorite planemaker as their work is always of the highest quality. This plane is no exception. It has a beautifully sculpted fence, arms, and boxwood washers and nuts. The depth stop screw is set in a fancy brass window. The ends of the arms are turned to acorn shapes. It's a plane that has seen careful use and is ready for more. The plane is completely usable- the arms have almost perfect threads with only a few small chips here and there. The plane adjusts perfectly right to the fence so it will work well for plowing small groves close to an edge like for a drawer or raised panel. The fence is in good condition and the depth stop moves easily. The nuts and washers are tight, but travel easily down the length of the arms. I've had them on and off to make sure. This plane
