New Tools Were Last Added: 2021-03-07

Update 2021-03-07 Hi Everyone! Thanks for your patience in waiting for an update. I had hoped to have more tools posted last week but things got.. interesting. First we had a big wind storm come through that knocked out power and Internet for a while. That was followed by our water heater finally calling it quits. That required me to move a few thousand pounds of tools to make room for a replacement to be installed. The upside was I uncovered some really interesting stuff I had not seen in a while. Anyhow.. tonight there is a big update of tools of all sorts. I hope you find something you like! More to come later this week. Thanks for your support.. and your patience! --Josh

Early Davenport, Sheffield 12in Backsaw Sharp and Ready to Work.
This is a 12 point Rip Backsaw, freshly sharpened and ready to work. It has a fairly slack rake angle and cuts beautifully, quick and clean with a thin kerf. It's a little to aggressive to use as a crosscut, so it's not what I'd consider a "hybrid" tooth pattern. This saw was made by One of the several Davenports who worked in Sheffield for more than a century. This is an early example with the tiny die-stamped maker's mark stamped at the very bottom of the spine. The beech handle is in good shape, tight to the handle. The plate is straight and 2 1/2in deep under the steel spine. A fine, early saw ready to use.

Disston no. 12 26in Handsaw.
This saw dates to 1896-1917 based on the medallion. It's 26in and 9point crosscut. The plate has a slight bend about mid-way. Although the teeth aren't terribly sharp I've tested it and it does track straight and doesn't bind. The top horn is slightly truncated. It's a solid worker, not a collectible.

Interesting Evans King-Size Tape Measure.
This tape measure was made by Evans in Elizabeth, NJ. It's in its original box with its original promotional material included. It was clearly sent to a hardware dealer as a sample which you can see in the photos. It also includes a hand-written note reminding the owner to not remove the screw else the spring will unwind. I imagine it was a lesson learned as the spring has no tension. The tape still works and the note gives it some real charm.

C.E. Jennings Catalog Reprint.
176 pages, softcover, excellent condition. This catalog is undated but likely dates to the 1910s. It's one of the few references we have to C.E. Jennings. Jennings was an important maker and hardware dealer in the early 1900s. By that time they had purchased several edge tool makers, sawmakers, and auger bit makers throughout New England. They are far less known than companies like Stanley but they played an important role and their tools are top quality and quite common. It's a hard to find catalog and a highly recommended reference.
