Excellent 6in Rosewood Bevel Gauge.
this is a superb little bevel with no maker's mark I can see. The design on the locking screw is unique in my experience. The rosewood stock is near-perfect, a couple of owners' marks are the only flaws. The blade is crisp and clean. It adjusts easily and sets securely. A fine working example and quite attractive.

Interesting Canadian Adjustable Sash Molding Plane.
This plane was made by V.A. Emond in Quebec city and sold by the Chatham NB hardware dealer J. R. Goggin. This plane has two blades which cuts both halves of a sash molding- the rabbet on the outside to hold the glass and the decorative inside profile- a simple ovolo. The plane can be adjusted to work different size stock by means of two screws in the side of the plane. Both blades are long and pretty clean, though they need to be shaped and honed as you'd expect. It has no damage and only light wear.. completely usable and quite interesting.

Matched Pair of 1in Tongue and Groove Molding Planes.
These planes were made by Adam Hope & Co. in Hamilton, Ontario. They cut a T&G joint centered on 1in stock and will work for 7/8in stock as well. They've seen some use, and both have a maker's mark branded on one side. The blades are decent- some light pitting but they lap easily enough. I quickly cleaned up the tongue blade and got it pretty clean and flat in under a minute. It won't take long to tune up into working condition. It's a good, usable pair.

2in Skew Rabbet Molding Plane w/Nicker.
This plane has an over-stamped maker's mark that's hard to photograph. I am 100% certain that it's H. FOGG, a mark that appears in AWP-V. Not much is known of this maker- it's speculated that it dates to the mid-19th century and possibly Vermont as the origin. It rates (****) for rarity. The plane itself is in very good condition with a nice long blade. The blade has some pitting away from the edge but the area nearest the bevel has been lapped clean and flat which is all that matters. The nicker blade is tight in the body. The plane has some light wear but the mouth is still tight and the working corner pretty sharp. A solid worker for cutting rabbets both with and across the grain

Odd and Interesting Molding Plane.
This plane is purpose built to cut a small groove along its side. I've never seen one quite like it. I imagine it was built for a specific task- one that I can think of offhand that would require a groove with these dimensions is cutting the groove in the sole of a molding plane to accept hammerhead boxing. The plane is well-made but has no maker's mark. While the mechanical parts are all well-done, it lacks a bit of the fit and finish you'd expect to see from a plane made for sale. A very interesting plane

Early "Eureka" 8in Bevel Gauge.
This bevel is marked "Sargent's Patent July 22, 1873" on the blade. This patent is the basis for the Stanley no. 18 "Eureka" bevel gauge that's so popular among workers. I believe this is a "type 1" based on the information in Walter's guide to Stanley tools. It has a nice even patina and works well, despite a small bend in the blade near the end. An interesting, early bevel

Stout 3/4in Socket Chisel.
This chisel has a thick blade and looks quite early. The socket is clearly forge-welded. There is a partial maker's mark but all I can read is "& Son" for certain. The blade has some discoloration but the area near the bevel is lapped clean and flat. The handle is in great shape but certainly not original A good worker for tough jobs.

It has two adjustments to it that allows the user to regulate the amount of set and where the plunger hits the tooth to account for different tooth sizes. It's a really interesting design and looks quite useful

Massive Wm. Marples 1/2in Socket Mortise Chisel.
This chisel is 14+in long, made in Sheffield by William Marples. It's seen a lot of use but remains in good, usable condition. The blade back is clean and free of pitting. The handle has some checks towards the socket but it looks plenty stable to me. The handle is hooped to absorb mallet blows. A sturdy worker in a useful size.

Thick Marples 3/16in Socket Mortise Chisel.
This chisel is clean, sharp, and ready to work. It's 13in long and has a stout, laminated blade. There is a crack or seam in the tool steel 3in back of the bevel, but it does not extend to the softer top layer so I think it's fine to use. The handle is perfect. An imperfect chisel, but usable.

Bizarre Double Tongue and Groove Molding Plane.
This is an interesting idea- a plane that cuts both sides of a Tongue and Groove joint using two different fences, each mounted at a different height. Not a coming and going plane, which is much more common. There is a patented version of this plane, but this one looks quite early and is likely craftsman-made. It's a long plane, 15in overall. I would classify it an interesting curiosity, not really a usable plane.

Large Beech Spokeshave.
This shave is a little larger than most- it's 11.5in long with a 3 1/8in wide blade. The blade is long free of pitting, and has a good sharp bevel. The beech body has some light wear but nothing major. It's marked "F. Newton" on one handle which i believe is an owner's mark. It has a very faint stamp on the front I can't make out. It'll be a fine worker for sure.

Medium-Sized Quirk Flat Ogee Molding Plane.
This plane was made by the partnership of Samuel Kennedy and Dyer White in New York between 1822-40. The plane cuts a nice 1 1/4in wide by 3/4in deep flat quirk ogee profile. the plane is clean and crisp with only very light wear. The boxing is good- the blade needs some reshaping to make it match the sole exactly, not much more than you'd expect in a nearly 200 year old molding plane. It's a useful profile and a very nice molding plane
