Stanley no. 813 10in Heavy-Duty Ratchet Bit Brace.
This brace was made during the 1920s SW era- Stanley's heyday. This is a heavy-duty bit brace with a ball bearing chuck and pad. It works perfectly. The nickel is in poor condition- flaking off in some spots. It's not pretty. The cocobolo handles are in excellent shape. It's not a very common model, even less so since it's a SW example. It won't win a beauty contest but it'll work very well for hard jobs.

There is a hole at the end of the plane, intended to allow a helper to use a handle or rope to pull the plane through the stock. A very nice plane in great shape

This plane is marked "T.FAVOR" on the toe. This mark is shown in AWP-V and marked "UR" for unrated. There is only one other example mentioned and the date of manufacture is ca. 1800. This plane certainly looks like it dates to the turn of the 19th century with its broad, flat chamfers, rounded wedge finial, and overall design. It's a boxed 1/2in side bead in usable condition. There are a few cosmetic flaws- some checks in the handhold you can see in the photos. The iron appears to be original and is in decent enough condition. It's an interesting, early American molding 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

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.

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
