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.

7/8in Fixed Hollow Auger.
This hollow auger cuts 7/8in round tenons. That's it's only job. It has two blades, both of which are in good condition. The tapered square shank has some wear but I've tested it in a brace and it holds just a fine. A perfectly usable example.

It's a really interesting design and looks quite useful

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
