If you have questions about what the Stanley numbers are, you can
look the planes up on Blood&Gore:


Sometimes, emails to/from me are vectored to some cyber black
hole, never reaching their destination. I answer all emails, so if
you haven't heard from me, your/my email is likely having high tea
in said black hole, never to be heard from, so please try again.

If there is anything in particular that you're after, do ping me
as there is a lot of stuff here that isn't on the list; the list
just represents a snapshot of the previous month's haul with none
of the stuff having appeared on a previous list. I like to keep
things fresh here.

Please email me prior to sending money so that you can be sure
the item is still up for grabs. Also, prices do not include shipping,
which is the amount that it takes to go from me to you via the US
Post Office.

This list goes out to many people, normally on the first Monday
of the month (unless otherwise noted above). So, if you see something
you want, it's the quickest finger on the trigger that wins the duel.

Some folks become upset that they miss out on a tool. I wish I had
lots of this stuff many times over so I can satisfy the demand, but
that is normally not the case. Some of it does have duplicates here,
and if so, I will state that in my reply to you.

Also, due to the nature of selling over the wires, tools are sold
on a first come, first serve basis. The first person to say "I'll
take it", gets it. I have to operate this way as some will take a
few days to get back to me with their interest in a particular item,
and it's unfair to keep others waiting who are willing to buy the
item immediately.

I reserve the right to correct typographical errors after the list
goes out. I rarely make them, but when I do they can be major ones.

If you're the kind of person who puts a straightedge to the sole of
a #40, to check it for flatness, or who tosses a plane on a scale to
weight it against what it states in the Stanley catalogs, you'll need
to take your business elsewhere. I'll wish you luck finding perfection
in something that was never made, nor intended to be, perfect. You guys
know who you are, and it's best for both of us that our paths not cross.

Lastly, and I don't like to mention this, but if you tell me that
money is on the way for something you want, and you never make good
on it, we won't be doing business in the future. It's unfair, actually
downright discourteous, to others who want the same thing, and I tell
them it's sold. Pull this on me, and you're exorcised from the list.
Sorry, but I don't tolerate this behavior well at all.

Don't forget the cool new tools that I'm making - a jazzy layout
knife being used by professionals (made the cover of Feb.1998 FWW!),
a detachable block plane handle designed to fit your standard pitch
block planes, a killer Robinson's Improved Patent sliding bevel, a
tilting jaw for your Emmert's vise, and the finest bench plane in
production today, the Bed Rock #601. You can see it all at:


Remember, you don't have to be a connoisseur (did I spell that
correctly) to shop here. You can be a wirehead, a metalhead, a zipper-
head, a propellerhead, a deadhead, a cokehead, or even a knuckle
dragging oaf, just like me, to shop here, as long as your dinero is

Thanks for shopping, and remember that no letters or words were
injured when writing this list...

FT1 A rare Brown&Sharpe point of sale display with the firm's
tools nicely arranged on a board within a glass case;
stenciled "The Property of Buck&Hickman, London", this
large display is 36" by 31" by 6" and contains over 50
of the firm's tools; used to aid tool buying for the
customers, displays such as this were fashionable from
the late 1800's to the 1950's, this one appears to be
from between the two World Wars; Brown&Sharpe seems to
have had greater market presence in England than Starrett
did, perhaps displays like this put the customers in a
"buy me...buy me...by me" trance (it certainly has for
the tool lad as he wants to keep it); none of the tools
have been used, it's obvious that the lower right area
shows them with rust and mildew, this is on the apprentice
kit that is in a leatherette case which held moisture
and started the process; fortunately the apprentice kit
can easily be found to replace the one in the display
(or you can clean it); with some missing return moldings
on the sides, and expected knocks and dings after being
removed from the wall and then stored, it's nevertheless
 a great example of quality tool production that now is
almost extinct; this cannot be shipped, but may be able
to get it to many areas east (or along) the Mississippi:

ST36 #90 steel case rabbet plane; likely made to counter the
steel infill planes offered by Great Britain makers and
retailers, it proved to be a flop due to a fatal flaw,
the shavings cannot escape freely from the mouth; nearly
all are found with the side/mouth filed to overcome this,
this one is 100% original and never messed with; in much
nicer than usual condition, it's a plane only a collector
could love; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jan/t86.jpg $290.00

have separated); a sound worker; top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jan/t102.jpg $90.00
ST47 #64 set of butt chisels in original roll and tattered
remains of original box; the clear plastic handle version
of the Everlasting chisels, they are fine general purpose
workers, widths of 1/4", 1/2", 3/4", and 1"; showing little
sign of use, the 1" managed to become chipped, these are
not to be confused with the modern junk, these date to ca.
1960 and are the model #60; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jan/t102.jpg $110.00
ST48 #608C Bed Rock corrugated jointer; earlier round side model
that saw use and has plenty more left in it; all original
parts, the frog and main casting mate just like the more
expensive square side model does, this will make a fine
worker; top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jan/t103.jpg $145.00
ST49 #604C Bed Rock corrugated smoother; a square side model
offered for restoration, the tote is split, the knob is
off a larger bench plane with the countersunk hole made
deeper, it's been repainted with the embossing picked in
white; some elbow grease will have it worker; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jan/t103.jpg $90.00
ST50 #150 miter box; as found, with all original parts, including
the usually long gone stop, this worker saw use, has plenty
more left in it, the original wooden table shows the common
kerfs, it's designed to be replaceable as needed; a very
popular tool:

clean, little japanning remains; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jan/t109.jpg $30.00

start using it; top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jan/t121.jpg $195.00
ST53 #18 sliding bevel with 10" blade; as found, in the WWII
finish, the blade is locked firmly in place with a thumb
screw at the butt; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jan/t123.jpg $40.00
ST54 Earlier #39 1/2 nickel plated level; with floral casting that
resembles a Miller's Patent plane, this one saw very little
use, the plating glistens (despite what the poor image may
suggest); vial cover stamped with Stanley name and patent
date, it's difficult to find them this clean; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jan/t126.jpg $55.00
ST55 #10C corrugated jack rabbet; a difficult model to find, this
one has all original parts, no damage, shows normal signs of
wear, japanning 75%+, iron has about 1/2" life left to it;
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jan/t127.jpg $255.00
ST56 #604 1/2 Bed Rock oversize smoothing plane; an as found
example with "BED ROCK" lever cap, the upper portion of

still usable; most japanning remains, there's a sound
worker waiting your restoration effort; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jan/t127.jpg $235.00
ST57 #2C corrugated smoothing plane; a ca.1900 model that's
free of damage, lightly cleaned, and has a full length
'92 patent iron that I replaced as the original was short;
less common than a #1, it's guaranteed to be a real one
and not some modern rework; right:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jan/t128.jpg $365.00
ST58 #100 corner brace; stamped with the old Fray model number,
it also has the Stanley Rule&Level name stamped in the
frame, it has the unmistakable Fray chuck; as found, in
sound worker shape, showing normal signs of cosmetic wear,
it can bore against any well, into corners, and bothersome
group meetings at your job; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jan/t131.jpg $90.00
ST59 #4 1/2H oversize heavy smoothing plane; a proper one, with
the embossed "H" after the model number, this is the nicest
example I've seen, it saw barely any use; all original
parts, two patent dates on main casting, '92 patent iron,
this model was sold in England, though made in the US, to
complete against the infill planes popular on that island
country; so many of these have been messed with, whizzed
up, replaced with UK Stanley irons, you'd be hard pressed
to find a finer example; top:

**** ******

WP1 Ebony double side rabbet with steel sole; found in England,
where such planes, as well as chamfer planes, seem to have
been in a contest over which owner could come up with their
own design, this one differs from others in that the two
irons are offset relative to each other; 5 1/2" long, in
sound worker shape, one iron's tang is snapped off, a hang
hole in the steel; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jan/t1.jpg $65.00
WP2 5/8" (depth of cut) common ogee; by Routledge, with owner
only, it saw little use and is free of modificaton;
expected bang marks on heel, it's a solid worker of the
classic profile:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jan/t2.jpg $75.00
WP3 5/8" (depth of cut) square ovolo; found with the previous,
same owner mark, also by Routledge and little used:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jan/t3.jpg $60.00
WP4 Adjustable chamfer plane for regular and stopped work; no
maker's mark, but iron is Preston and the plane has all the
characteristic's of a Preston, perhaps the workman who made
this had his mind on the liquid lunch and his motor skills
were a bit impaired; adjustable fence regulates the width
of cut; lightly cleaned, owner mark, showing normal signs
of use; top left:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jan/t7.jpg $115.00
WP5 Steel plated shouldering plane; often called a dovetail
plane, it can perform that duty to cut the tails of a
sliding dovetail, its proper use is to clean the 'apex'
of a tenon where the cheek and shoulder meet; with nicker
iron, it's owner made, as most are; 7" long, as found,
no damage, it looks to have been waxed awhile ago; top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jan/t11.jpg $120.00
WP6 Larger bed molding (ovolo and cove) by Eastwood/York; a
classic profile commonly used where the soffit meets the
frieze, this one cuts 1" deep by 1 1/4" wide; owner marks,
little used, the rear corner was slightly rounded so that
it doesn't destroy the hands during use, this was a common
practice on wider profiles; a very nice example that will
work well for case pieces:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jan/t21.jpg $135.00
WP7 Mathieson moving fillister; a very clean and little used
worker that easily cuts rabbets in any grain direction;
fully boxed shoulder (front corner shows some dings where
something must have rubbed against it during storage, it
has no bearing on its use), boxwood wedge for the nicker
iron, steel plated screwed stop, notched fence for easier
removal of iron when sharpening, and three screw fence;
lightly cleaned, owner mark, this kind of plane is the
best for cutting rabbets; top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jan/t31.jpg $165.00
WP8 V grooving plane by Clegg (appears another maker that was
bought out, I can't make it out); lignum sole, rabbet
throat, it's a perfect plane for cutting squares in profiles
made with hollows and round, tracking rounds, a detail
between matched boards, etc.; owner mark, in fine worker
condition; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jan/t47a.jpg $85.00
WP9 Unusual smaller grooving plane with nicker iron; perhaps
a specialized tool for coachmaking, it may also be for
cutting grooves for inlay; adjustable fence with brass
plating slides along a single arm, there is plating at
the mouth, that is necessary as it cuts a 1/16" groove;
a well made plane, lightly cleaned, it's 6" long; top
left; this is a fine tool; top left:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jan/t49.jpg $245.00
WP10 Germanic carved router; with an 1881 date and initials,
the starburst and leaf carvings appear to have been done
later; 9" long with a 1/2" wide cutter, it can be used
and/or displayed; left:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jan/t53.jpg $115.00
WP11 Clean toothing plane by Varvill; carefully used, showing
no appreciable wear, with owner mark; right:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jan/t53.jpg $65.00
WP12 H.Chapin Union Factory screw arm plough plane; a little
used worker with boxwood arms, nuts, and washers, it lost
its wedge long ago, that's easy to make; with some original
irons (not in the image), it's a bargain worker; top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jan/t61.jpg $95.00
WP13 Routledge fully boxed reeding plane with owner made fence;
cuts three adjacent 1/4" beads, the fence allows you to
make multiple cuts over the width of the work, it can then
be sliced to make a reeding detail of whatever length you
choose; some chips in the boxing, the plane is fully func-
tional; top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jan/t69.jpg $95.00
WP14 Marples grooving plane with three original cutters, unused
and in the original box; the firm's version of the Record
043, it has 1/8", 3/16", and 1/4" irons, the plane has its
full label; perfect for small boxes and drawers, a fine
working tool; top:

iron, iron is a Marples and has been in it a long time,

MS180 Very unusual five-foot, two fold boxwood rule with arch
joint; graduated in tenths/foot, it's stamped "Board of
Trade" and probably was used for inspections to make sure
merchants weren't shortchanging customers; a well made

two of its three alignment pins; top:

controlled drilling, the chuck is hand fed by turning the
large knob at the top; two speed, fully functional, the
boy gave up one of his Jacobs chucks (by Jacobs) as the
original is MIA; runs smoothly, could use a clean, the
small disk on the clamping screw is missing, sometimes
that was pulled off so it would attach better on the bench;
a solid worker:

of the kind that were sold as working kits of tools, the
original tools are long gone, what remains is in solid
shape; with a removable tray and a drawer, Melhuish
retailed only the best, this is a fine made example with
only apology of missing bails, those can easily be re-
placed; 20" by 11" by 9", it's a handy size for storing
smaller tools:

MS188 Davis Level & Tool 12" (actually 13") ratcheting brace;
a fine quality tool made by the same firm that made the

augers; one of the earlier uses of hard rubber on a tool;
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jan/t120.jpg $85.00
MS189 A.A.Wood adjustable hollow auger; with a clever self-
regulating adjuster to set the working diameter from 1/4"

in a common brace; right:

MS192 Early wooden brace with different style pad; normally
secured in the brace with a thumb screw, a clothes pin
style catch, a nail, this one has a notch in the chuck
to accept a mating projection on the pad, it keeps the

(long gone) keeps the pad from falling out; well made,
as found, no damage, likely American (found in NH), and
with good age, it's ca.1800; bottom:

with patent date stamped in the lateral adjuster and oval

needs is a honing; top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jan/t128.jpg $145.00
MS201 Record T5 technical jack and shooting plane; with remov-
able handle, it can be used as a jack plane, but with the
handle secured on either cheek it functions as a shooting
plane; used just a few times, all it needs is a honing,

to Record; top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jan/t130.jpg $155.00
MS202 Record No.712 1 1/4" rabbet; another plane unique to
Record, it has an integral grip toward the heel, the iron
is skewed, a depth stop on the opposite side; cleaned and
with a later protective coating over the 50% original blue
finish, it's in sound worker shape and is not a common
plane; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jan/t130.jpg $145.00
MS203 Linford All Steel Master Plane, in the original box and
unused and for good reason, would you be caught dead with
this pressed steel thing in your hand; purported to be a
smoothing plane, the public didn't believe that, it proved
that stupid ideas never ring up large sales; now for the
collectors, who want one of each, I promise not to tell
anyone you bought it; top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jan/t132.jpg $90.00
MS204 Yankee No.1555 multi-ratchet drill; an engineering marvel
in barely used condition, everything functions perfectly,
it's an earlier one with the patent date stamped in the
handle; ready to serve all your serious drilling needs,
this one was put away without the side handle attached,
that got separated from it, what's here is important, you
can find a rusted/broken one easily for its handle; rarely
found in this condition; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jan/t132.jpg $135.00
MS205 Millers Falls No.360 sabre saw, used once and then put
back in the original box; with original paperwork and
many blades in their sleeves, I normally don't offer
tools with tails, but it's wintertime and many tools are
now hibernating and waiting for springtime to throw
themselves at me; I suspect it's fine quality, made in
America, you can have the pleasure of plugging it in for
the first time in 50+ years; top:

MS206 6" (edge length) drawknife; manufactured, but no maker's
mark, it's stamped Warranted; beveled on both sides, it
was never abused, and is perfect for finer work; bottom:

MS207 Meriden Malleable #8 jointer; one I've had in my collection
for 15 years, it's free of damage and saw very limited use;
the totes on these planes are very fragile, it's uncommon
to find them free of damage, fortunately this one escaped
that; dusty (my wife refuses to keep my tool collection
clean), it has all original parts save for the iron, which
is a Stanley, the cap iron is proper and has the patent
dates stamped in it; one of the many attempts to dethrone
Stanley, like all others it was quickly relegated to the
trash heap of shattered dreams; top:

 MS208 Disston D-8 26" skew back 11pt crosscut; never abused and
in ready to use condition, it was sharpened recently; most
etching visible, it's made in Canada, but don't hold that

that; bottom:

MS209 Preston 2" flat bottom spoke shave with vernier adjusting
nut; in far nice than usual condition, setting the iron

MS210 D.Kimberley (same one that sold the patented plane) bull
nose rabbet plane with rosewood wedge; used once or twice
and then put away, this one is as close to new condition
as one could hope to find; 3 1/2" long, 1 1/4" wide iron,
and a mouth almost watertight; these handy cast planes
are next to impossible to find in such condition; top
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jan/t135.jpg $165.00
MS211 Preston 9" torpedo level; with decal remnants and stamped
with the EP logo in the full length brass plating, this
one has never been cleaned; expected scuffs in the finish,
wood looks to be mahogany; bottom:

MS212 Four cutters for the Preston 1399P large router; harder to
find than the difficult to find router, two are stamped
with the Preston name, two are custom made by an owner;
widths of 1/4", 3/8", 7/16", and 1"; as found with minor
superficial rust, they are all usable; left four:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jan/t136.jpg $125.00
MS213 6 1/2" cast iron plumb bob with interesting shape; unusual
to find one made entirely of this metal, it has good age,
minor knocks, cap unscrews; a graceful thing; middle:

MS214 Five carver's background punches; each in fine shape, one
showing signs of being a favorite (due to mushrooming at
end), they are all waffle pattern; not easy things to
find, these all came together from the same source; right:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jan/t136a.jpg $195.00
MS215 New Rogers treadle jig saw; made by Millers Falls, it
proved to be the most popular design made as it captured
the Victorian passion for fretwork and cottage industry;
with all original parts, including the normally long
gone bellows (leather disintegrated), it also has the
spindle for a buffing or grinding wheel; short grain of
the lower arm split off long ago, that can easily be
fixed with some glue and a small piece scarfed onto it;
the same area of the top arm has a repair as the grain
wanted to do the same; a square nut has been replaced by
a wing nut; overall, it's much nicer than what's normally
found, these things work well and are fun to use; this is
 pick-up only, or I can bring it to some tool show local
 to you:
