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 The boy found his finger unexpectedly squeezed in this
very rare Thomas Hall patent quick adjustment miniature
vise as manufactured by the Charles Parker Co. of Meriden,
Connecticut; patented on June 24, 1873, Hall hailed from
Florence, MA, a section of Northampton (and a location
that shares the same name of me missus's grandmother,
which she never fails to mention whenever we travel
through the place), the vise is similar to the popular
quick adjust vise patented in 1864 by A.P.Stephens; the
Hall design is orders of magnitude rarer, I have only
seen a couple of the large Hall patents, which have sold
for upward of $1000.00, this is the first miniature model
I have seen, it may be unique; with jaws of just 2" wide,
it's embossed with the Hall name and date, the Parker name
and location, it saw very little use and is fully oper-
able; a design that never caught on, despite the marketing
power of Parker (known more for its world class shotguns
and larger standard machinist's vises), the design seems
to be well executed but suffers what I think is a major
flaw, that being the locking lever sticking outward,
toward the worker, below the jaw, it must have got in
the way during use; having stated that, it's a more
complex design, 'pumping' the lever ratchets the sliding
jaw toward the fixed jaw to snug whatever is between them,
the last downward push on the lever does the final
tightening; a fine example of human creativity, this is
 a great tool that's ready for a significant collection
of tools:

vintage with sweetheart iron; top right:

yet growing rapidly, product line, the illustrations have
the old style appearance; bottom:

ST6 Uncommon special purpose grooving router; generally thought
to be a Stanley-made tool, it has a narrow rail to ride in
the working groove; nickel plated, with turned wooden knobs,
there's no model number, it may be that Stanley was test
marketing the thing and found it unpopular; well made, no
cutter, I'll put a proper one in it; bottom left:

time, right when Bailey sold his stuff to Stanley, parts on
hand were finished in New Britain; this plane shows features

about any type study; with no number in toe, eagle stamp,
banjo spring lever cap, and no Bailey on adjusting nut, the
plane is 100% original and never messed with, it's in much,
much nicer than usual shape and is much harder to find than
its metallic mates; used carefully over its long life, nothing
broken, owner name in stock; top:

ST75 #72 chamfer plane; a worker with 50% japanning, all original
parts, and slender chip off the horn of the tote; a popular

ST81 Matching set of six #40 Everlasting style chisels; what the
Everlastings became when hard plastic was substituted for

fused with the clear yellow plastic handle variety; little
used, out of a working shop, widths of 1/4", 3/8", 1/2",
5/8", 3/4", and 1"; one with owner initials pricked in the
plastic, another is missing its metal cap, it's tossed in

a tool morgue; two Stanley's and one Sargent, there's
plenty here to harvest to bring your dead back to life;
left one has no knob, no iron (but has the cap iron), the
tote is split, a portion of the main casting tab (at the
heel) departed permanently; the middle one is a Sargent
No.407 and is the best of the lot, with a split tote and
missing the adjusting nut; the right one is held together
with a clever application of zip-ties that would confound
Houdini, the main casting is held together with these,
it's missing the tote; top three:

ST83 #17 block plane; the nickel plated version of the popular
#9 1/2, it has all original parts, is in much nicer than

ST84 #604 1/2 Bed Rock oversize smoothing plane; an early 1930's
production, the iron is a Record replacement (many #604 1/2
planes are found in England, where the irons are usual either
UK Stanley or Record as the users found them to be better
quality than the US ones); dirty, the knob is off a #604
smoother, it'll clean to make a fine worker; top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/dec/t104.jpg $225.00
ST85 #62 double spoke shave; a clever design that allows the
tool to cut on the pull and push stroke, a handy thing

worker; bottom left:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/dec/t104.jpg $60.00

that has the "STANLEY" embossed lever cap and sweetheart
iron, it's 100% original and as found, never cleaned, 99%
japanning, barely used, an owner very neatly engraved his
initials, "N.A", on the right cheek; sneaky tool dealers
will gently clean this and put it in an 'original box' (a
#42 saw set box) with a photocopy label and pass it off as
original, that will never happen here; the most desirable
model with its embossed lever cap and a suitable stocking
stuffer for your favorite toolie; top left:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/dec/t113.jpg $1185.00
ST89 #101 1/2 bull nose miniature block plane; the toughest to
find of the four plane series, Stanley tried to dump them
in England where Marples, et al, were offering similar
small cast iron block planes; nearly all surface in England,
where this one was, it has all original parts, 75%+ japanning,
no damage, an owner lightly filed a few marks on the left
cheek at the heel; much nicer than what's normally found;
top right:

ST90 Newly manufactured replacement t-shape pin and screw for
the #52 shoot board; identical in all ways to the original,

locations; ready to use, it fits all productions of the
board; bottom:

correctly), 1 1/2", and 2"; marked Fulton Special, they saw
careful use and have lots left to them:

MS125 Disston No.7 10pt 24" crosscut; good etch, sharp, no

about that; bottom:

MS126 Eleven Swiss pattern files in the original box; made by
Nicholson, they are 8" No.2 parallel machinist assortment,
they look to be unused; sold as a set of 12, one went on
permanent vacation, what's here is ready to use; these
aren't the needle files that are still made (and priced
to choke an elephant), but full length straight/round
side ones; top left:

MS127 2" bevel edge Buck Bros. chisel; at 16 1/2" long, this is
a serious chisel for paring and pounding; made during the
40's, it saw little use, it's in need of a clean, which
it's guaranteed to do well; top right:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/dec/t75.jpg $55.00
MS128 Davis Level and tool pedestal level for steel rules,
straightedges, squares, etc.; in clean shape, original

MS129 ca.1890 tool catalog, "The Tool Monger" of Mongomery&Co.
of New York City; in sound shape, with a focus on machinist
and mechanic tools, with some woodworking, there is all
sorts of brands many of us recognize, like Stephens and
Yost vices, Richardson levels, Starrett, Buck Bros.,
Millers Falls, etc.; toward the end is Campbell's rule
tool, item MS77, with a full page dedicated to its use;
a rather uncommon catalog; bottom right:

MS130 Uncommon Bozwell B. Butt 1885 patent level; shaped like a
"D", with two vials at right angles to each other (one is
broken); can be fixed on a straightedge, it has a grooved
bottom for referencing off of round stock; 3" long, and with
most japanning, few know that Bozwell Butt is related to the
Butt Sisters (Bertha, Betty, Bella, and Bathsheba), his
invention was ignored almost to the same degree Jimmy Castor
ignored him, which was totally in his unforgettable song,
The Berth Butt Boogie; sock it to me, you don't have to be
a troglodyte (or a Leroy or a Luther) to own this one;
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/dec/t76.jpg $245.00
MS131 Victorian letter opener (paper knife) in the form of a
cavalryman's sabre; a very well made, and perfectly
scaled item, it has a scabbard two rings; hilt has four
bars, the original decorative tassel is attached; 9 3/4"
long, good patina, pre-1900, and most uncommon, you can
also use it to skewer many cocktail onions for your
super-sized martini, or, if you're into stuff like this
(perhaps tainted by a bit of arrested development) do a
sword swallowing routine with Barbie and Ken dolls; a
cool thing; bottom right:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/dec/t76.jpg $285.00
MS132 Millers Falls No.108 angular bit stock; in its original
dusty box, barely used, ready to go, it's a very handy
and popular tool for increasing the working range of a
common brace to allow boring into corners and other
obstructions; top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/dec/t77.jpg $65.00
MS133 Odd gull-wing shaped scraper with nickel plated sole that's
embossed "ROBERTSON"; works similar to a #80, but with no
screw to bow the blade; made of ebonized hardwood, 11 1/2"
long, it has pronounced curvatures making it a rather
attractive tool; as found, a bit dirty, it'll make a fine
worker; bottom:

MS134 W.B.Sears&Co. 12" backsaw; made in Middletown, NY, it's

MS136 14" sweep brace, model No.740A by Millers Falls; for the
most powerful boring, it saw little use, has some super-

is; an uncommon size; bottom:

MS137 Starrett 13" graduated vernier caliper in its original

MS140 Stephens&Co. combination rule; early production, it's
stamped with the Riverton, CT location and 1858 patent
date, it's far less common than the Chapin-Stephens

blade shows some tarnish, a good example given its
age; top right:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/dec/t85.jpg $115.00

box and advertised as an axe stone; larger two, at 4"

MS142 Hewing axe with 12" edge; it never saw much use, it sat
for decades and is now dirty with some pitting (mostly
on the top), the back will want to be lapped as you use
it; American manufacture, I see no name on it, you and
I both see it has no handle; guaranteed to be a fine
quality; top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/dec/t86.jpg $75.00
MS143 Group of seven (I found another after snapping the image)
 planishing hammers; for metalwork, appear to be a matching
set, each different, they saw barely any use and are not
the cheapo Chinese crap flooding America; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/dec/t86.jpg $95.00
MS144 Three E.A.Berg chisels and a handle (that doesn't fit the
widest chisel); two butt (no relation to Bozwell or Bertha)
chisels, 1" and 2" (this is the one with no handle), and a
3/4" bevel edge; all as found and will clean to be solid
works, best steel; left group:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/dec/t87.jpg $85.00
MS145 Lever action brace/ratchet tool by Goodell-Pratt; a fine
quality tool that can accept anything in its two jaw
chuck (which is a North Bros. replacement), the tool can
be leaned on with more force than a common brace can
handle (due to the position of your arms); in solid
worker condition; top right:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/dec/t87.jpg $65.00
MS146 Slender 9 1/2" bronze router; patternmaker made, with a

http://www.supertool.com/forsale/dec/t87.jpg $70.00
MS147 Pruning saw with cast iron frame, original blade and
scraper; 15" overall length, odds are it's a Disston, but
I can find no name; a pole is stuck into the socket, you
supply that of whatever length you choose; good amount
of original japanning remains; top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/dec/t88.jpg $70.00
MS148 Marbles camp axe; a very uncommon tool from the firm
that supplied campers, hunters, etc. with a unique line
of tools, the one is stamped as a camp axe on the head,
it also has the nail pulling 'claw' on the backside of
the head; original handle, overall length roughly 20",
it's the first of its kind I've offered; an original, not
a modern cheap remake; middle:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/dec/t88.jpg $270.00
MS149 Odd button hole cutter; can't recall seeing this one be-
fore, it's a simple design, the brass anvil can be slid
below the keyhole shape cutter; as found, it has to be
manufactured, but I can't find a name on it; bottom left:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/dec/t89.jpg $55.00
MS150 Hold-Fast 8" sliding bevel; simple lever mechanism firmly

MS151 Patent applied for multi-tip screw driver by Young Mfg. Co.
of Hartford, CT; larger than the Billings&Spencer product,

B&S; wooden handle, four tips haven't been reground, the
steel ferrule is loose form the turned handle; left:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/dec/t91.jpg $165.00
MS152 Visitor badge for Union Mfg. Co. of New Britain, CT; many
WWII era companies required badges like these for their
employees (probably due to some government contract rules),
finding a visitor pass is quite rare; 1 3/4" diameter, a
few dings in the rim, it likely was used by many visitors;
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/dec/t91.jpg $145.00
MS153 Marbles No.5 axe head; parted company with its handle
long ago, that unfortunate event kept this one in better
than typical condition, there are a few small areas of
minor pitting; clearly stamped, you'll have a fun time
trying to fit a handle to this one which has an eye of
three adjacent circles; top right:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/dec/t92.jpg $55.00
MS154 Cast iron stone holder by Pike Mfg.Co. or Pike, NH; a
handy thing as it keeps the oil in the holder and not on
the bench (or wherever you store it) as it seeps out of
the common wooden holder; with an old stone tossed in for
free (chipped on the back), it accepts a 6" long by 1 5/8"
stone; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/dec/t92.jpg $60.00
MS155 Four new old stock Yankee No.90-5 9" long screw drivers in

dirty, but structurally sound; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/dec/t93.jpg $70.00
MS156 Clean Sargent No.61 closed throat router with two original
cutters; a barely used example that has nearly all finish,
it has a clever captive nut that engages milled slots in
the back of the 1/4" and 1/2" cutters to adjust them; the
equivalent of the #71 1/2, it's a fine example of an un-
common tool; top right:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/dec/t94.jpg $185.00
MS157 Larger shears (scissors); nearly 16" long, they are by
one of the Newark, NJ makers, but are unsigned; with most
japanning on the handles, they saw little use, you'll want
to sharpen them for best use; great working things, you
open the blades and slide the larger handle on a flat
surface along the line to cut, you'll never look at scissors
the same way again with one of these in hand; bottom;
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/dec/t94.jpg $80.00
MS158 Boxed set of 1/4" letter stamps; found with the #40 above

MS159 Utica Cutlery/Tool kit in its original case; most of these
sets are German, this one was proudly made in Utica, NY;
in fine, as found shape, it has an interesting group of
tools including a pocket knife than can accept the hammer
and blades, there's also a 4" crescent wrench, and pliers;
German silver trim on knife has green tarnish, the tools
themselves are very clean; bottom right:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/dec/t95.jpg $145.00
MS160 Millers Falls No.188A automatic drill; similar to the
Stanley product, this one is an easy to use tool for

fit in the magazine) and the original box, it saw barely
any use; top left:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/dec/t96.jpg $40.00
MS161 Five smaller brass/bronze luthier's planes; longest is

MS163 Marples M120 adjustable block plane; with the original box,
it saw little use and is modeled after the popular Stanley

MS167 2" luthier's plane with removable squirrel tail handle;
a bronze alloy, the sole is slightly curved both directions;
a fine quality tool of the kind retailed by Hammacher-
Schlemmer, the NYC firm that retailed only the best tools
with a slant to instrumentmaking; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/dec/t99.jpg $110.00
MS168 Pair of uncommon Ellrich Mfg.Co. adjustable wrenches; from
the Plantsville, CT firm that had some ties to PSW, the
wrenches have no markings, but are noted as being from
this firm in Kenneth Cope's American Wrench Makers (a
catalog cut is shown for the firm, the wrenches are
identical to the cut); 4" and 6" long, the former is nickel
plated and is missing the adjusting nut, the 6" is all
there and has a later protective coating applied, it also
has initials stamped on both sides; top right two:

MS169 Eight shorter length Jennings pattern twist augers; an
uncommon length for boring shallow holes, they are marked
with the Mephisto name, they appear to have always been
together; diameters 7/8" to 2 1/2", they have a later pro-
tective coating on them; fine quality; bottom pile:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/dec/t100.jpg $90.00
MS170 Atkins saw filing jig; a simple to use aid that allows a
constant filing angle of the length of the saw; clean and
little used, the old (and short) file in it should be
replaced (I know where you can get some proper files);
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/dec/t101.jpg $110.00
MS171 Tapered auger/reamer, more than likely a Swan product as
it has their lines and red finish; perfect for working
larger diameter tapered holes, it tapers from 1" to 2"
over the 7" cutting edge; commonly used by cooper's,
anyone making a bench, shaving horse, stout tools/stands,
can find this useful; a later finish was applied; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/dec/t102.jpg $75.00
MS172 Graduated set of three Diamalloy double end crescent
wrenches; made by the Diamond Calk Horseshoe Co. of Duluth,
MN, they are in clean and much nicer than usual condition;
sizes 4" to 6" (4" side jaw is seized, it should move after
a soak), 6" to 8", and 8" to 10"; handy and well made, they
can wrench nuts or serve as a substitute for Fido when you
run out of dog bones; bottom three:

MS173 Uncommon A.A.Wood&Son No.66 bench grinder; made by the
same Atlanta, GA firm that made the best hollow auger and
go-with tools, this is the first grinder I've had by the
firm; a very well made tool, it has a sliding rest that
easily adjusts relative to the 6" wheel as it's used up;
the rest is a flat plate with cross hatched pattern for
better grip; in fine worker shape and of a quality that
will last for generations; left:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/dec/t105.jpg $180.00
MS174 Disston saw filing vise; their No.1 with 9" jaws, it
quickly attaches to the bench top, it's hinged so that
the jaws can tilt back and forth relative to the filer;
cam lever firmly locks the blade in the jaws; most
japanning remains, it saw careful use; right:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/dec/t105.jpg $60.00
MS175 Earlier axe with 6" (edge) bell-shape profile; good age, I
believe it to be North American, it has an older replacement
handle that fits it well; oval eye, some mushrooming to back
of it, chip at one corner of edge; looks to be a good quality
chopper; top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/dec/t110.jpg $80.00
MS176 Cast iron San Francisco Water Dept. meter box cover;
featuring the Golden Gate Bride deeply embossed in the 10"
wide oval, there are traces of the original red finish;
with legs, it makes a great trivet or paperweight; an old
one, not a reproduction, I found here in MA, someone may
have nicked it while on holiday; not a modern copy, but an
original that has a pre-WWII look about; top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/dec/t111.jpg $165.00
MS177 Wooden hat stretcher with cast iron turnbuckle action to
enlarge it; sized for a 6 3/4 hat, good age, if your ego

looks to be ca.WWI; top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/dec/t112.jpg $75.00
MS179 Book, "The Stanley 'Forty-Five' Combination Plane" by
David Heckel; as complete a reference as ever, this paper-
back bible offers the history, identification, and value
(from years ago, not now) of one of the most significant
planes manufactured; if you don't learn at least 45 new
things from this book then there's something wrong with
you; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/dec/t112.jpg $35.00
MS180 Mahogany 10" level with finely engraved brass plating that
covers the entire top; remarkable detail for a level, and
even more remarkable that it never was cleaned and polished,
its maker is E.Willcocks of Canterbury (England); original
vial, a fine example of Victorian artistry; top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/dec/t114a.jpg $165.00
MS181 Preston 1/4" double square ovolo iron shave; cuts a left
and right square ovolo in a very desirable size for cabinet
work, this one saw very little used and has nearly all the
japanning; a very uncommon profile and size for this shave,
all original parts, the iron is stamped with the size and
the Preston logo; a fine working example; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/dec/t114.jpg $165.00
MS182 Preston No.1368C 1 1/4" nickel plated shoulder and rabbet
plane; a fine and barely used example, just a hint of
plating loss localized on a corner between the sole and
side, I've only seen one nicer and that was one in the
original box I sold to a major tool manufacturer north
of me (eh?); only in need of a honing, a great example
that became the 073 when Record bought Preston; top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/dec/t115.jpg $390.00
MS183 #18 style sliding bevel that's embossed "ANBULUS" a name
that suggests a bowel disease (at least to me, that is);
the 6" blade is stamped as made in Germany, it's a beefier
model of the #18 bevel popularized by Stanley; remnants of
the original plating, fully functional, it's a fine worker
or one for your one of each sliding bevel collection; top
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/dec/t116.jpg $85.00
MS184 Very unusual bronze bull nose adjustable rabbet plane with
nicer than Norris engine turning of the kind done on Model
J Duesenbergs; in its original box that has a label that
reads "Mechanisms Patent Bull Nose Plane"; first of its
kind I've seen, as is likewise case for many other know-
ledgeable UK collectors/dealers, it's a very well made
plane that was used just a couple times; original japanned
(over bronze) lever cap shows some minor loss, extra fine
mouth, the adjusting screw slides a pin that engages a
hole in the iron; plane is also stamped Mechanisms Patent,
 it's a very odd name for a plane; certainly a rare plane
that's roughly 4" long; top right:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/dec/t116.jpg $290.00
MS185 Accordion style adjustable dovetail gauge; expands and
contracts the six templates so that they are equally
spaced automatically; in sound worker shape, a UK patent,
and probably the most popular tool of its kind invented;
top bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/dec/t116.jpg $75.00
MS186 A most unusual and unique double bevel; made of forged
iron, with two brass quarter circle sections that are
stamped with several graduations, my hunch is that this
is used for layout of rafters; probably not manufactured,
very well made, it has unique hinging action for each
section; found in England, it may be Continental, but
the graduations betray that origin; about 14" long, and
with a ca.1875 appearance, there are no maker's marks of
any kind; a very cool thing that will amuse you for hours
as you try to figure out how it's used in its various
contorted positions; top:
