Outstanding Matched Set of Ten Buck Brothers Patternmakers Gouges.
These ten chisels were all owned by a Mr. Vince Cassiano and all bear his neatly etched owner's mark on the blades. These are crank-neck patternmaker's gouges, all with inside bevels for coping cuts and bent handles to elevate the user's hands above the work. They were a specialized tool for a highly skilled trade in the day, and fairly scarce today. They still have some utility in the shop today and are especially useful for coping joints and or making any sort of curved paring cuts. These gouges are all in near-mint condition and appear to have just been taken off the former owner's workbench after a days's work. The handels are all original and perfect with Buck's head logos and nearly perfect original varnish. The blades are all perfect with very sharp bevels and perfectly clean, honed backs. The blades show rainbow colors towards the tang, a left-over from the hardening and tempering process and an indication of how clean they are. These are an excellent set of gouges in almost un

Stanley No. 1 12in Bit Extended in its Original Box.
This tool attaches to an auger bit to give the user an extra 12 inches of reach. Several companies made these with different types of designs. This one uses a threaded sleeve to compress a pair of steel jaws around the shank of the auger bit. It is a SW era tool made ca 1925-1930. It has the 3-10-25 patent date. The tool has almost all original nickel plating on the shaft. The square tapered shank shows little wear. The outer sleeve that tightens down over the jaws has a small crack in it, probably the result of someone clamping down the threaded sleeve to tightly. This is a fairly uncommon tool and of the few I've seen more than one had this defect so it must have been a common flaw. Regrardless, it's in usable condition and still holds a bit well in the jaws. It has its original box with a clear label, though a couple of corners have been repaired. It's a good, usable bit extended- a very valuable tool to have on-hand when boring holes in hard to reach places.

This is how almost all of them look after 150 years or so. It's a fine user brace in a nice size- perfect for quickly boring holes under 3/4in or so, driving screws, or using with a countersink.

North Brothers Yankee No. 1530 Eggbeater Hand Drill.
This small hand drill has all of the features of the larger Yankee hand and breast drills but on a smaller scale. This drill was made by North Brothers in Philadelphia, PA sometime after 1912 but probably no later than 1930. It is a heavy duty hand drill with five modes of operation selected by moving a shifter on the transmission. It can operate as a plain drill, with a left or right-handed ratchet, in the locked position to change bits, and in right-handed double mode (my personal favorite) in which the chuck turns clockwise no matter which way the handle is turned. This is a quick way to bore holes in tight spots. It was described as "..exciting the wonder and admiration of all mechanics" in the Yankee literature. The drill also has a hollow tool handle which can be removed by loosening a knurled nut at the bast of the frame. It is in excellent condition overall and will make a fine user. The chuck has hardened steel jaws and will accept bits up to 3/16in. The gears all work smoothl

Goodell Pratt No. 5 Eggbeater Hand Drill.
This is a Light to Medium duty hand drill capable of holding bits up to 1/4in in diameter. It is a rather unique design with a hollow mahogany handle with a patented cap which revolves to reveal slots to hold up to eight drill points. The other distinguishing feature is the side handle which is placed higher on the frame than most, a feature that makes the drill easier to hold steady in my opinion. The drill is in excellent working order with smooth gears and a perfect three jaw chuck. The frame is made of malleable iron, the chuck jaws are hardened steel. The chuck has the 1895 patent date and most of its original nickel plating. The body has maybe 80% black paint and the main gear at least 95% red paint. It's an excellent drill to put to use for use at the bench.

This Millers Falls dril likely dates to around 1910. It has the black enamel painted gear, chef's cap style side handle, cocobolo head, and does not have the thrust bearing, a feature that was added in 1912. The drill is in very good condition overall and works perfectly. The chuck accepts bits from 0-3/16ni. The hollow cocobolo handle is in excellent shape with exceptional color. It's loaded with a bunch of short bits that I forgot to photograph. The gear action is perfectly smooth with no slop. It's a great light-duty drill to put to use.

The hollow handle has perfect original finish and about 95% of the original decal. It holds seven blued fluted bits. The chuck accepts bits from 0-1/4in. The box is in good condition with a nice clean label. There is one blown-out corner on the cover. It's about as nice an example as you will ever find.

Excellent Working Set of Sixteen Russell Jennings Bits.
This is a set of RJ bits in sizes 3-18. All are in good working order. Fourteen of the bits are housed in a unique laminated turned bit holding box. Here are the details- The bit holder is made of what appears to be laminated strips of maple, beech, and walnut. There are fourteen holes bored for bit sizes 5-18. Of these bits, eleven have always been together and have the owner's initials HSH stamped on the tangs. These are all in excellent condition. The eleven was missing when I found the set so I replaced it with a proper RJ bit that matches the others. The 17 and 18, both proper RJs, don't have the HSH mark. The 17 has lots of pitting but is still in usable condition. The 18 is in excellent condition. The holder doesn't have a slot for a 4, so I included a matching bit in excellent condition.. I also included a Russell Jennings No. 3, a rare bit in excellent condition, because I had one hanging around. It's a good working set with some nice extra sizes.

Center bits are fun to use and can bore extremely fast in green or soft wood. They allow the user to vary the rate of cut by applying more/less pressure to the bit. They are also easy to sharpen and maintain.

Set of 13 Russell Jennings Pattern Bits.
This is a set of 13 bits in a olive drab roll, possibly as military issue set. Eight of the bits are original to the set. These are marked with the Russell Jennings name and the model No. 100. I filled in the missing five bits with proper replacements- the 4,5,6, and 14 are R-J marked bits but do not have the 100 mark. The 10 is a CE Jennings bit int he same pattern. All of the bits have a double-twist shank and double fine lead screw. This is a good set for quickly boring holes in dry hard and softwoods. They aren't designed for boring in green or gummy woods, nor will the larger bits work well in very hard woods. All of the bits should be excellent uses and have lots of live left. The lead screws, cutters, and lifters all are in good shape. These R-J pattern bits are the most popular today and boxed sets sell for astronomical amounts. Here's a good working set that won't break the bank.

Set of 13 Irwin Pattern Bits in Patented Wood Box.
This set of thirteen Irwin pattern auger bits is housed in a patented mahogany case with brass reinforcing on the corners. There is a patent date of May, 1898 on the bottom of the box. The bits are an assembled set but all in excellent to near-mint condition and all in the Irwin pattern with a solid center, single twist, and single-threaded lead screw. The coarse lead screw give them a tremendous amount of gripping power when boring and are much less prone to stripping out when boring large holes in hard woods and will tend to clog less when boring in wet or gummy wood. These bits are a bit slower than the Russell-Jennings bits but they are better general-purpose bits. It's a good working set in a nice box.

Outstanding Set of 40 Vintage Boring and Bitstock Tools.
This is a set of forty various bitstock tools all housed in a custom-fitted canvas roll. The bits are not matched but are all of British Manufacture and all show the same general age and patina. The usual suspects are all here: Marples, Flather, etc. I think it's probable that the set was put together by a craftsman sometime int he late 1800s to early 1900s for use with his braces. These bits all have tapered square shanks with notches for Sheffield style braces with pushbutton chucks. This set is similar to the many sets offered by the various toolamakers and iron mongers in the late 1800s and early 1900s. An example and description of such a set is given on page 100 of The Jointer and Cabinet Maker. This set closely resembles the that set except that it has the additional gimlet bits, and lacks the Jennings auger bit. This set includes, from left to right in the first photo- Two reamers, or rimmers, one for wood, one for metal. The wood reamer is in excellent condition with an intact

This example is a SAMSON-E which was the final incarnation of the Samson line of braces and features all of the patented improvements including the patented two-piece chuck which allows you to tighten or loosen the shell without turning the bit.

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’s the most over-engineered, gizmo-laden boring tool ever created. It’s 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-du

This bit was made by Anker Bohrer, I presume a German company. The bit is in its original box with the original paper label. It's 12mm wide, just under 1/2in. The bit is in mint, unused condition with good cutting lips and a long lead point. This bit has a tapered square shank and was meant to be used in a brace. This sort of Forstner bit is extremely useful, leaving a flat bottom hole and capable of boring at just about any angle. Unfortunately they are fairly scarce and often found used-up. This one is brand new!

This is a small 1/4in capacity hand drill by Goodell Pratt. It was made sometime between 1905-31.

The three jaw spring chuck works perfectly. The drill is in very good condition overall. All of the original finish remains on the handle. The gears turn perfectly- smooth and quiet. Almost al of the black finish remains on the frame and the chuck has almost perfect nickel plating. The main gear is missing some red paint- the only flaw. It works perfectly and will be an excellent worker for light boring work.

Nice 10in Brace made by Stanley for Lakeside.
This brace is essentially a Stanley 923 10in brace branded with the Lakeside name. The brace has all of the features of the 923 including the 2485991 patent number (10/25/1949 granted to Stanley) on the chuck. The only difference between this brace and the standard 923 is the use of beech on the head and handle. This makes for a really nice looking brace in my opinion- it certainly stands out in a bunch. It's a perfect working brace with a tight head- no wobble, and both the head and handle rotate freely. It has a ball bearing head and chuck. The ratchet works perfectly.

This is a classic Sheffield style brace with a beech body reinforced with brass strips set into the body. The solid brass chuck has a spring-loaded bush button clip to hold bits in place.

The handle has adjustable collars to keep it in place unlike almost any other brace. The frame is clean with no pitting. It's likely that the frame was stripped of its original nickel and polished but it's still a good-looking brace as you can see from the photos.. The ratchet works perfectly. It is engaged/disengaged by pulling a selector on either side of the chuck. The cocobolo pad also rides on ball bearings. It has a former owner's name tastefully stamped along its rim: "Ruzkowsi, Romulus, MI, 1928" It's a beautiful brace in perfect working order.

North Brothers No. 1540 Heavy Duty hand Drill .
This drill was made by North Brothers in Philadelphia, PA sometime after 1910 but probably no later than 1930. It is a heavy duty hand drill with five modes of operation selected by moving a shifter on the transmission. It can operate as a plain drill, with a left or right-handed ratchet, in the locked position to change bits, and in right-handed double mode (my personal favorite) in which the chuck turns clockwise no matter which way the handle is turned. This is a quick way to bore holes in tight spots. It was described as "..exciting the wonder and admiration of all mechanics" in the Yankee literature. The drill also has a hollow tool handle which can be removed by loosening a knurled nut at the bast of the frame. The drill has adjustable ball bearings in the spindle to take all of the load from drilling under high pressure. The side handle allows you to use the large handle as you would a breast drill for even more leverage. The drill is in excellent condition overall and perhaps

Millers Falls No. 1 Cigar Spokeshave.
The Millers Falls cigar shave is an invaluable tool- it's one of those rare tools that will do a job almost no other tool will do, and it does it extremely well. This shave is capable of working very tight radiuses that no other tool can tackle. This particular example is the best I've found. It has two things going for it- it retains almost perfect original nickel plating and red paint in the throat. The rosewood handles are flawless. Secondly, the blade is honed to a mirror finish, hair-shaving sharp and ready to work. The one fault with this sort of shave is that the blade can be a bit of a pain to sharpen. It's a moot point with this example, it will be ready to work out of the box. It would be virtually impossible to find a better working example.

These dividers have an interesting (at least to me) mark- it clearly says Peck, Stow and Wilcox, the well-known Southington, CT toolmaker also known as PEXTO. This pair of dividers has the East Berlin, CT location which is unique in my experience. The EAIA DAT lists Roys and Wilcox as working in East Berlin and later joining PS&W in 1870. This particular tool seems to date to somewhere right around this merger. Anyhow, the dividers are in excellent condition with long, sharp points and a smooth micro-adjuster. An excellent general-purpose size to use for al sorts of layout work.

Unmatched Pair of Hollows and Rounds..
This pair of planes was made by different makers but the planes both cut an arc with a radius of 1 3/16in and the profiles match. Both planes have slightly skewed irons bedded at York pitch. The hollow was made by Christopher and Johnson & Co. of London. It is in excellent condition. The round is made by Wm. Moss. It is a much older plane, perhaps older than 200 years, but it is still in excellent working condition with an incredibly tight mouth. They make a good working pair of planes.

Early 1/2in Ogee Plane By Wallace, Dundee.
This plane was made between 1818-20 according to Goodman's book on British planemakers. The plane exhibits all the traits of an early plane including its short stature and the broad, flat chamfers along the handhold. The blade is bedded at York pitch. The body has dings and scratches, and obvious signs of use (including the imprint of the former owner's hands) but it remains in good condition with no chips or cracks. The blade is clean with no pitting and fairly sharp. It will be easy to hone and put to use- almost 200 years old and still usable!

7/8in Casing Molding Plane by Lindsey.
J.F. and G.M. Lindsey made planes in Huntington, MA from 1856-79. This plane cuts a nice ogee along the edge of a board. It is used upright with the fence running along the face of the board, rather than referencing the face like a normal ogee. This makes it a terribly easy plane to use- just hold it vertically, no spring angle to check, and plane until it stops. It makes it difficult to use on end grain though. It's an ideal profile to use along a shelf edge, table top, and elsewhere. The plane is in excellent condition with a perfect blade- sharp with no pitting at all.

Interesting and Near-Mint Set of Handled Tongue and Groove Planes.
This pair of planes was made by Sandusky. They feature closed totes with the Sandusky stly profiled handle designed to fit comfortably into the hand of a right-handed user. I've seen this tote design in smoothing planes before, and one plow. but these are the first T&G planes I've found with the design. The planes are in near mint condition with perfect bodies and blades. Even the long horns on the totes are perfect. There isn't a spot of pitting on the blades. These planes were designed to center a T&G joint on 7/8in thick stock but will work well on 3/4 or 1in stock. A great working pair of planes in unbeatable condition.

Pair of Small Side Beads by Sims of London.
These two planes have always been together, sharing the same set of at least three owners' marks. Both planes have the Sims, London mark. Joseph Sims worked in London from 1814-34 according to Goodman, however, his mark appears have been used later than 1834 by Atkin & Son. Whenever these planes were made they are an excellent working pair. The smaller cuts a 1/8 in side bea, the larger 1/4in. These are two of the most popular sizes for most work. Both are in excellent ready-to-work condition. The beech bodies have some grime and imprints of former owners' hands, but no chips or cracks. The boxing in both planes is straight and free of cracks. The boxing around the mouth, where it tends to wear the most, shows little wear. Both blades are bedded at a steep 55 degrees, perfect for hardwood. Both blades have clean, lapped backs and very sharp bevels. They should work well right out of the box. A great pair of planes to put to use right away.

Excellent Matched Pair of Preston Hollow and Round Molding Planes.
These very well-made planes were made by Edward Preston and are in excellent condition. The blades are bedded at a high 55 degrees, slightly higher than York pitch. They are also skewed at a slight angle, perhaps 5 degrees. The planes cut an arc with a 1 1/8in radius. They were made for hardwoods and should work very well on the trickiest grain. The mouths on both planes are exceptionally tight. The blades are in good condition with some staining but no pitting. They will not take long to hone and use. Neither plane shows signs of much use. The bodies are crisp with no chips or cracks. The only flaw is some blue paint spilled on the hollow. An unfortunate accident that could be clean up with some stripper or scraped off if you choose. As good a working pair as you will find.

This pair of handled tongue and groove planes was made by David Bensen in Albany, NY ca 1827-50. These planes are longer and wider than most molding plane-sized T&G planes. These are more like small jack planes. The bodies are 14in long with nice open totes. They are both in excellent condition with no chips or cracks on the totes, and good, clean bodies. The irons are by Butcher, and both are in good shape. The longer plane bodies are advantageous in that they provide more bearing surface against the work. A good working pair of planes ideal for larger case work such as tool chests.

Excetpional 7/16in Dado Plane by Varvill and Son, York.
This is a truly exceptional dado plane for a couple of reasons. First of all it's in excellent condition overall with a perfectly clean body, shiny, polished blade and nickers. and a perfect depth stop. It's about as nice as they come. Second, the plane was made by Varvill and Son, a planemaking partnership working in York from 1829-40, so the plane is at least 17 years old and made by one of the best planemakers around. The Varvill family made some of the highest quality wooden planes in my opinion. They are by far my favorite planes to find since they are always well-made and make great planes to put to use. This one is no exception. It's also in a very scarce size. I think I've only found a handful of planes in this size. It would be an excellent addition to your arsenal of dado planes.

Huge, Crisp 1 3/4in Dkew Rabbet with Nicker by Copeland.
Copeland & Co. and its predecessors made some of the nicest American molding planes I've found. This one is no exception. It was made in Huntington, MA between 1855-66. IT is in excellent condition overall with crisp, sharp corners. The massive blade is perfectly clean with no pitting and is quite sharp. The nicker is full-length and also sharp. I like rabbets like this for cutting and tweaking joints both with and across the grain. The extra width of this one makes it more versatile because of its additional mass, maximum cut, and wider planes are just easier to balance and keep square to the work. It's about as nice as they come.

Matched Pair of No. 3 Hollows and Rounds by King, Hull..
Samuel King made planes on his own in Hull from 1776-81 then as a member of various partnerships until around 1817 according to Goodman.

The planes are clean with barely a scratch or ding. They have two sets of owners' marks on the heel and toe. The blades are very sharp- honed and polished and ready to use. The blades are bedded at 55 degrees and slightly skewed. They cut an arc with a radius of just a hair under 1/4in. They are a fine working pair of planes in a condition that can't be beat.

The boxing is perfectly straight, the body fairly clean with the normal toolbox dings and scratches you'd expect. It's in excellent working order and will be in top working order with just a honing. The 3/8in plane has seen almost no use and is excellent condition overall. The body is clean with just a few dings. The blade is long and has what I believe to be the original factory grind on it. The boxing is perfect. They will be a good working pair of side beads in two useful smaller sizes, perfect for cabinet scale work and smaller moldings.

These four planes appear to have always been together. They were made by John Millers in New Castle-Upon-Tyne at the 73 Clayton St. location between 1855-75 according to Goodman. The planes are all in excellent condition. The bodies are exceptionally clean with signs of light use, but they were clearly well cared for. There are no chips or cracks at all. The mouths are still exceptionally tight. The blades are bedded at a steep 55 degrees and slightly skewed, no more than 5 degrees. They are designed to work hardwoods and should perform very well. The blades are dark, but in excellent condition. It shouldn't take much work to get them up and running perfectly. An excellent set of four planes.

Exceptional Mathieson Sash Fillister.
The sash fillister was used primarily by sash-makers. It was used to cut the rabbet into with the glass pane was fit in a sash window. Sash fillisters were made in a variety of styles but were almost always highly ornamented and must have served as a status symbol, much like plow planes. This example has all of the bells and whistles you'd expect from a high-end sash fillister. The body and fence are beech. The sole is fully boxed with triple-dovetail boxing. The arms have brass caps secured with crossed boxwood wedges. The arms are held in place with boxwood keyed wedges. The fence has a brass wear plate along the working edge. The nicker is held in place with a wedge. The large brass depth stop has a steel sole applied to it and a brass thumb screw to regulate depth. The plane is in very good condition overall with no chips or cracks and a beautiful patina on it. The blade and nicker are both in good shape. It's a gorgeous, usable plane.

The nickers will allow the plane to work effectively both with and across the grain in either direction.

Early Standing Fillister Plane by William Moss.
This plane was made by William Moss in Birmingham. The working dates in Godman's book are 1775-1843. I would imagine that this plane dates to the earlier portion of that period based on the design. The standing fillister is essentially a fixed rabbet rabbet plane with an integral fence that can be used to cut half-lap joints, used for sash work, or other work where you need a 1/2in wide rabbet. The blade is bedded at a steep 55 degrees. It's sharp with a nice clean back. The plane has evidence of a depth stop being attached at some point in the past. It's a good, early usable plane in a scarce form.

It's an excellent plane to put to use for the smallest work in an exceptionally rare size.

The blades are both excellent with sharp bevels and clean backs. The wedge sare both intact and hold the blades tight. The steel skate on the grooving side is perfectly straight.

Scarce Mathieson Counter Check Plane.
This plane was made by Mathieson and Son in Glasgow. The plane is in excellent condition overall. The countercheck plane was used by sashmakers to create a weather-tight seal between the upper and lower sash rails. The top and bottom rails were beveled where they meet to create the seal. This plane has an adjustable fence to regulate the width of cut. The British called this style of plane a counter check, the Americans called it a meeting rail plane. Mathieson offered it in their 1899 catalog as model no. 792. The body is extra-clean and the blade barely used. It is sharp and has a perfectly clean back. It's a scarce plane in excellent conditon.

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.

Huge Quirk Ogee and Bevel Molding Plane by J&L Denison. .
This plane cuts a large 2in wide by 7/8in. deep profile. This profile was commonly used for casing moldings and bears a faint resemblance to the generic, nearly flat casings found today in the box stores. The plane was made by John and Lester Denison in Saybrook, CT between 1832-40. The plane is in good condition overall. There are tight checks at the heel and toe. The body is clean with very few scratches or dings. The blade is very clean with no pitting. It's fairly sharp and matches the profile exactly. The boxing has a crack about 3 inches from the heel. The two pieces have separated a bit and are out of alignment by a few thousandths. It's a tiny defect and will take almost no time to fix, but it should be noted if you want to put the plane to use. It would also make a great showpiece since the profile allows it to sit upright on its own. An interesting, usable, early plane.

Steel-Sole Skew Rabbet by C. Nurse.
This is a 1 1/8in wide skew rabbet by Charles Nurse. The plane stands out for its thick steel sole which gives it a considerable heft. The sole looks good enough to be original to the plane. I've owned other Nurse steel-sole planes so it wouldn't surprise me at all if this were an option offered by the maker. The plane has seen a lot of use but is still in very good condition. The maker's mark, including the horse "Invicta" mark, it bold. The body is clean and still fairly crisp. The blade is short though, with about 3/8in left. It's enough to provide some good years of service, but it will need to be replaced at some point. The sole of this plane will ensure that this plane has many decades left in it.

Rare Matched Pair of Sash Ovolo Planes by Mathieson.
This is a matched pair of sash planes- one marked 1 the other 2 at the heel. They have always been together. They cut a nice 5/8in flat sash ovolo. The accepted thinking is that the planes were numbered so that sash makers could use one plane to hog waste then follow-up with a fine-set second plane. These planes were made by Mathieson. Both planes are in excellent condition. The blades are clean and the mouths quite tight. The bodies are free of chips or cracks. This is the first matched pair of sash planes I've had the good fortune to come across. Either plane would make a fune user.

Pair of Side Bead Molding Planes by King, Hull.
These planes have always been together- they were both made by King & Co. in Hull and were owned by a "J CLARK" (not me). The King family made planes from 1744-1907 according to Goodman. This one likely dates to 1864-1907. The larger plane cuts a 1/2in side bead. It is in near perfect condition with a sharp blade and nearly flawless body. The smaller cuts a 1/4in side bead and is in nearly as good condition. The only flaw is a tiny patch of pitting at the far side of the back of the blade- the part that gets buried in the non-escapement side of the plane and never used. It's inconsequential, but it bears mentioning. Both planes have irons bedded at 55 degrees, perfect for challenging hardwoods. Both will make excellent users.

Pair of Mathieson Fixed Chamfer Planes.
These planes were both made by Mathieson. They perform one job- they put a chamfer along the edge of a board, and they do it very well. The smaller plane cuts a 1/4in deep chamfer, the larger 5/16in chamfer. These fixed chamfer planes are very scarce, and I've never seen a pair. Both planes have similar wear patterns and maker's marks and were found together, but I cannot definitively say that they have always been together. both planes are completely usable with good blades, boxing, and bodies. A nice pair of planes to add to your working collection.

This plane was made in the late 20s/early 30s and has the hallmarks of a pre-WWII plane including the lack of a rib at the heel and toe- the "MADE IN USA" behind the knob, the absence of color behind the embossed Stanley on the lever cap, and the square top blade. It's a great user plane, perhaps one of the cleanest I've ever come across.

Scarce 12in backsaw by Wheeler, Madden, and Clemson.
Based in Middletown, NY, WM&C was the second largest sawmaker in the US by 1884. They were one of only to sawmakers who had the ability to make their own steel (Disston was the other) which gave them an advantage over the many hundreds of smaller sawmakers who had to buy their steel at inflated prices on the open market. WM&C handsaws are fairly scarce today. I've had only a handfull pf their backsaws pass through here over the years. The saw is in great shape and very high quality. The apple handle is as nicely carved as any American saw I've seen and rivals some of the more ornate British handles I've seen. The handle is nearly perfect with no chips or cracks and nice long horns. The medallion has Munger's 1869 patent date. The etch is very faint. The plate is straight and the teeth sharp. It has 14PPI.

Gorgeous 10in Open-Handle Brass-Back Dovetail Saw by Robert Sorby.
This is a beautiful Robert Sorby brass-back saw. It has a thick folded brass spine with the distinct Sorby kangaroo trademark. The handle is beech and just perfect without a chip or crack on it. It fits my hand just perfectly which is the reason why I originally bought it some ten years ago. I've been paring down my collection of user saws lately and this one didn't make the cut.. The plate is 10inches long, 1 7/8in deep under the spine, and 12PPI. The teeth are a sort of hybrid I think- the rake is too relaxed to be called a true rip saw, but there is very little fleam. The plate is very clean with only a tiny bit of scattered light pitting. There are three broken teeth right at the toe so they won't affect use at all. It's also got plenty of depth if you want to re-tooth it to meet your requirements. I've used it quite a bit over the past ten years and I've always enjoyed it. It needs a touch-up sharpening but it still cus quite well as-is. It's a beautiful saw that works quite wel.

It has pitting on the front side but not the back. If the plate were sharpened rip the pitting would be less of an issue and the saw would work well for fine work like dovetails. The handle is made of beech and is attached with two split saw screws. The top horn is rounded off, the front botton horn has a small chip missing. The handle is tight to the plate and very comfortable to hold. With the proper teeth it will make a good user at an affordable price.

A great saw to use for long rip cuts along the edge of a board- the blade has a thinner kerf than a handsaw, and the saw can be used in a comfortable standing position to make long cuts easier.

Interesting Holden-Patent Rip Saw.
This is an intersting 26in 5PPI rip saw made with Holden's patent handle with the notch cut-out. This allowed for two-hand ripping, similar to Disston's thumbhole rip saws.

The medallion has an embossed ring around it with even mode verbiage describing the saw's excellent upbringing and lineage- too much to type here. The saw also has Jackson's "Non-Break handle" which sports an embedded steel pin to keep the English beech handle from braking. It all combines to make one good, usable saw by one of England's finest sawmakers. The handle is perfect with no chips or cracks. The p

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 nearly perfectly and

Interesting Adjustable Bullnose Chamfer Plane.
This plane has no maker's mark that I can discern, but was clearly professionally made in my opinion. The plane cuts chamfers of various widths but has the remarkable feature of a bullnose front with a brass plate acting as the nose and mouth of the plane. The plane has a center escapement blade like a typical wooden smoothing plane. The adjustable fence allows the user to vary the width of the chamfer. It would be ideal to use when making stopped chamfers along a leg of post, a job that I've done several times with a chisel, saw and block plane with unimpressive results. This tool could be the cure for that.

Early Skew Panel Raiser by Bewley, LEeds.
Robert Bewley worked in Leeds from 1785-1822 according to Goodman. This plane is 9 in long and 3in wide. It has a depth stop and fence to vary the width and depth of cut. The iron is skewed and cuts a nice flat field slightly skewed towards the face of the panel. The blade has a maker's mark on it but I can't make out the name. The plane has seen an incredible amount of use, but still has more to give. It has at least three owner's marks on it with a fourth on the heel partially obscured. The plane has tallow residue on it which clearly shows the places where the former owners' hands were placed when the plane was used. The heel is concave from thousands of hammer blows, yet there is no mushrooming or cracks. The plane was clearly used carefully throughout its 200 or so years of life. wThe iron is sharp but could use a regrinding to re-establish the bevel. It's a straight-across blade and will be easy to grind. It's a good, usable 200 year old plane. Add your own owner's mark to it.
