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 peoples, 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
green.

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


FEATURED TOOL OF THE MONTH
******** **** ** *** *****

FT1 In the world of antique tool collecting, it's rarely
asked "which came first, the chicken or the egg;" that
question might legitimately be asked in the case of this
tool, the first publicly available example of an adjust-
able dado plane by Mathieson to come on the market; one
of the most significant UK planes to appear in some time,
 its design is not unique as there is an American version
 that was patented in 1869 by Theodore "don't call me the
 Beaver" Duval of Hartford, Connecticut; rarely are tools
 made in a vacuum, many of the mad inventors knew about
 their contemporary competition or designs made decades
 earlier; however, in this case, it seems probable that
 Duval beat Mathieson to the plane punch, with his effort
 as his appears older than Mathieson's; one thing is
certain, though, and it's that Duval's effort is
amateurish when compared to Mathieson's; both attempted
to provide one plane, instead of many, to cut a dado by
 means of a two piece stock that can be adjusted wider or
narrower as needed; with overlapping irons, the plane
 can make the entire width of cut during each pass; while
 Duval's plane does work, it simply doesn't have the fine
 details that the Mathieson does; another thing is certain
 about the planes, and that is both are very rare; probably
 around a dozen Duval's are around (mine accompanies the
 Mathieson in several images, it's not included in this
sale) and there are only two Mathieson's; made to the
 highest standard, the Mathieson has two brass skates,
wedged nicker irons, cast slotted reinforcements at heel
 and toe and a better finish than the Duval; the tool model
commented that the Mathieson is a cool plane, when I
handed it to him for the photograph; I agree, it is a
cool plane, and is ready to take its place in a collection
of ideas that never panned out, Duval is probably resting
comfortably knowing that even the mighty Mathieson could
not make this albatross fly:

WALTER HARROD
****** ******

What follows is a special category of tools in honor of a
special guy, the late Walter Harrod, otherwise simply known
as Walter around here. Walter died thirteen years ago after
living into his 80's. He was a cabinetmaker, practicing not
too long before being called to tool heaven. And speaking
of tool heaven, that's exactly what his shop was like. He
and his father, another cabinetmaker, built a shop off his
family's barn (where they lived for nearly 200 years) after
 World War I. The business successfully ran there for decades,
and after decades, never having once been cleaned, began to
resemble the King Tut's Tomb of Tools. Walter and his father
were a dumping ground for unwanted furniture and tools, and
all of it was piled in the shop and barn. Though never
cluttered, it was packed nearly full. It's a wonder it never
went up in flames from either the wood stove or linseed oil
soaked rags. Lining three of the walls were shelves full of
wooden planes. When I am saying they were never cleaned, I
literally mean that - there was easily an inch of sawdust on
them. Walter had acquired all sorts of stuff, all with the
intent of using it. He simply could not comprehend that anyone
would own tools and not use them, he couldn't even say the word
'collector'. Trying to explain to him that some tools did their
time and deserved to be collected was like trying to convince
someone in the year 1250 that the earth is round. Walter had
no children, and the stuff passed through two nephews over a
dozen years. Always wondering what was going to happen to it
all, an auction finally appeared out of the blue, where a good
amount of it was sold to the highest bidder. All of this stuff,
and a bit more not on the list, came out of Walter's shop nine
days ago, much of it not having seen the light of day in over
50 years. Some of it I wiped the dust off, some I left as is
so you can dirty your hands just like I did after four times
handling it. A true treasure trove that ranges from absolute
shite to stuff that left me speechless when previewing the
sale. Virgin piles like this are rarely found anymore, I feel
fortunate to have acquired it to pass it on to you. Walter,
I'm sure, is happy that much of it will be used, but don't
dare mention the collector word!

WH1 Disston No.12 London Spring 6pt rip saw, used once and
then put back into its original paper wrapper; carved
apple handle, 26" long, this is how that rusty one you
have looked like when purchased 125 years ago; an amazing
specimen, saws in this condition are the most difficult to
find of all woodworking tools; the streak on each saw is
glare, not in the metal top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t1.jpg $685.00
WH2 The mate to the previous, an 8pt crosscut No.12; 24" long,
it compliments the rip perfectly; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t1.jpg $685.00   WH3 Disston D-7 7pt 26" rip; maybe used once, from the 1930's,
this was probably the last tool added to the tool chest;
top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t2.jpg $185.00
WH4 Disston No.7 11pt 24" crosscut; used carefully, some finish
loss to the handle, decal remnants, ready to use, if this
were the only saw in the chest, it alone would be worthy
of admiration; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t2.jpg $185.00
WH5 10 narrower gouges by T&M Sorby; with matching handles,
steel in shiny, with some dried grunge, average length of
10", widths from 1/8" to 1"; some saw more use than others;
top left:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t3.jpg $235.00
WH6 Barrett's Patent double arm marking gauge; one of the best
made gauges, it has disks at the end of each arm to mark
a variety of stuff and an octagonal head to keep if from
rolling around on the bench; in fine worker shape, 75%
plating, one arm is graduated to 1/32", which indicates
just how fine a tool it is; top right:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t3.jpg $65.00
WH7 Underhill hatchet; often called a shingling hatchet, it's
a form that was used by many trades for all sorts of general
chopping; little used, original handle, and the best
quality, it's sharp enough to use right away; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t3.jpg $60.00
WH8 Stanley A6 aluminum fore plane; still with some of the shop
dust on it, I deliberately left that on the plane so that
you can experience exactly what I experienced while digging
for this stuff in the shop; the plane is in much nicer than
 usual shape save for the tote which has a splinter off the
 horn and a split; the scarcest size of the three aluminum
 bench planes; I can put another tote, with decal, on it for
 another $35; left:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t4.jpg $145.00   WH9 #4C corrugated smoothing plane; probably the last plane
Walter bought, ca.1950, it's in fine shape, in need of a
dusting and a honing, it'll make a fine worker; middle:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t4.jpg $85.00
WH10 #10 1/2 smooth rabbet; a plane that saw use, but with lots
more of that left in it, Walter took a wider Stanley iron
and ground it nicely to fit this plane; knob has a split,
that can be sourced from any smoother-size plane, the tote
has a split mid-way up; will make a fine worker with not a
lot of effort; right:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t4.jpg $135.00   WH11 Barely used Buck Brothers 2" framing chisel with its
original handle; laminated steel construction, finest
quality, all it needs is a honing; next to impossible to
find condition; top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t5.jpg $85.00
WH12 1866 patent nail puller; the maker's mark isn't fully
readable, but it was made in Worcester, MA by somebody
and Sampson Co.; a simple design that laid the foundation
for the later gizmos, this one saw little use; 15" long,
in fine shape; middle:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t5.jpg $85.00
WH13 Unused older set of Irwin pattern augers; these were in
the tool chest, still with their wrapping (that was too
fragile to save); always together, the full set from 4/16"
to 16/16" in 1/16" increments, these are of the best general
purpose auger design made; most sets date post-1950, a set
this early and in this condition is next to impossible to
find; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t5.jpg $175.00
WH14 Barely used drafting set in its original sharkskin etui;
all tools present and accounted for, the boxwood rules
are of an odd size, 2/3rd the normal size, the folding
one is 9" long; a great set:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t6.jpg $385.00
WH15 The T.H.Witherby/Warrented bevel edge paring chisel set
you've been dreaming about for ages, but thought would
never arrive - 12 of them, all unused, with their original
leather tipped handles; apart from some minor storage rust
on a few, these are right out of a 100+ year time machine;
sets like this aren't supposed to exist, these prove
contrary to that belief; I have an original box for this
set of chisels, which I acquired elsewhere, it will be
given to the buyer of these:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t7.jpg $1285.00
WH16 3/4" screw box with matching tap and original sample;
in sound worker shape, Walter shimmed this one for use
to allow freer shaving ejection, those can be removed
if desired; top left:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t8.jpg $90.00
WH17 1/2" 6 screw box with matching tap; barely used, always
together, and in fine worker shape; top right:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t8.jpg $90.00
WH18 5/8" screw box with matching tap; barely used, with the
original sample, a few minor splinters on the box, probably
from the turning near the handles; a rather uncommon size;
bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t8.jpg $90.00
WH19 Barely used Addison Heald/Milford beech jack plane with
lignum strike button; essentially new condition, with a
fine mouth, 16" long, razee stock, Heald made some of the
finest wooden planes in America, this one is no exception;
Moulson double iron; most bench planes are only suitable
as firewood, this one isn't that; top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t9.jpg $135.00
WH20 Millers Falls combination drill and brace; a quality tool
that can serve two functions, it's normally found missing
the crank (like this one was during the auction preview,
I was able to reunite it with the brace); in sound shape,
it needs a clean and an oiling; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t9.jpg $115.00
WH21 Victor No.50 miniature block plane; the basic design that
uses and eye screw to secure the cutter in place; a handy
general purpose trimming plane, it was also advertised as
a pencil sharpener; as found, japanning looks to be 50%,
this was found in the same box as the killer Rust's Patent
saw set; top left:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t10.jpg $190.00
WH22 Stanley #101 miniature block plane; inspired by the
previous plane, Stanley added this to their line after
buying out Bailey's Victor line; an early model, with
the model number, it has the football shape logo; in
sounder worker shape, japanning is 90%; top right:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t10.jpg $40.00
WH23 Uncommon Bemis&Call saw set; in fine shape, works well, no
markings, it's one of their earlier offerings; just one of
many "better mousetraps" for the tedious task of bending
saw teeth; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t10.jpg $75.00
WH24 Stanley No.44 bit and square level in the original green
box; in fine shape, all original, box has the tool's
use engraved on the label; 1886 patent is stamped in the
screw; top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t11.jpg $120.00
WH25 Unmarked 4" sliding bevel with rosewood handle; not listed
in this size, but it has the unmistakable features of the
design that ultimately became the #25; in fine shape, with
owner initials, it's a cute wee thing; bottom left:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t11.jpg $145.00
WH26 Japanned cast iron level for attaching to a square or
straight edge; no maker's mark, it resembles the Sherman
of NY; in sound shape with original vial; bottom right:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t11.jpg $35.00
WH27 A.A.Woods spoke pointer; barely used, all original parts,
adjustable shank sets the working diameter, the max being
2"; turns a tapered round prior to using a hollow auger
to make a round tenon; top left:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t12.jpg $35.00
WH28 Millers Falls or Stearns adjustable hollow auger; with the
original stop, this one turns round tenons, it has a working
range of 1/4" to 1 1/4"; in need of a clean; top right:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t12.jpg $45.00
WH29 Stearns 1/2" diameter hollow auger; with original stop, it's
the tool to own for those who always need a 1/2" diameter
round tenon; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t12.jpg $40.00
WH30 Different traveler with two nicely shaped pointers and
decorative cutouts on the wheel; used to measure distance
along curved edges, this is an earlier, well-made product,
likely the work of a very skilled local smith; 11" long;
top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t13.jpg $85.00
WH31 My favorite tool of the load, an unheard of gunmetal Rust's
Patent saw set; overlooked at the auction preview, I only
noticed it when I looked in the box while it was on the
auction block; seeing it nestled among the other stuff
around it startled me, it was almost like stumbling upon
the Holy Grail itself; patented in 1854, and manufactured
in Great Falls, NH, the tool is clearly stamped with his
name and patent date; 100% complete, and all original,
with a wonderful patina that only time can produce, this
is Rust's ne plus ultra effort, it was all downhill from
this, he found himself in bankruptcy and spent the rest
of his life trying to pay off his debt (back during a
time when honor was paramount to a man's character);
perhaps if Rust didn't make this unique example, and
instead stuck with the traditional iron model, he might
have kept the creditors at bay; then again, probably
not; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t13.jpg $785.00
WH32 Pair of nickel plated drawknife chamfering guides; with
the original spacing bar, to keep the set while not in
use, they have all original parts and are stored in a
cardboard screw box that has the original box cover
glued to it; in sound worker shape, they fit nearly all
drawknives, 75% of the plating remains; top left:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t14.jpg $55.00
WH33 #19 knuckle joint block plane; barely used, it's a ca.WWI
model with all original parts, including the V-logo iron
that oddly is stamped on the wrong side (probably made
after a liquid lunch); this one will clean to be nearly
new, 99% plating remains there are also some original
box remnants; a fine example that would be difficult to
find in better condition; top right:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t14.jpg $85.00
WH34 Stanley #54 adjustable mouth spoke shave; an early Stanley
product with the two piece adjusting screw to set the width
of the mouth; all original parts, in sound worker shape, it
needs a clean; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t14.jpg $40.00
WH35 Period book, "Elements of Hand Railing Simplified and
Explained" by R.J.Sherratt, published in Boston, 1880;
for the trade that often had the best woodworkers of all,
the title hints as the difficultly of handrail construction,
the subject received much attention by authors who attempted
to make it understandable for most woodworkers; most books
are English origin, US ones are quite uncommon, this is a
sound US printing, and one I've never had before; with 38
plates, and lots of descriptive text, the author claims
"Founded on geometric principles, and showing how to make
rail without center joints, making rail of the same
material, with half the labor, and showing how to lay out
stairs of all kinds"; in sound shape, with some of the
original owner's penciling inside, its condition is as
expected for a book its age; large format, at 10" by 14",
this is a very difficult to find book; left:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t15.jpg
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t15a.jpg $285.00
WH36 Grouping of honing stones, including one with three stones
that rotate in their carrier; in sound shape, not all used
up, and a bargain over what they must have cost new; right:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t15.jpg $60.00
WH37 Pair of adjustable dividers, one being a very scarce Roys
and Wilcox (later to become part of Peck, Stow & Wilcox)
of East Berlin, CT; 6" and 8", the 8" has an adjustable
point, there's a name under the grime, it's probably a
Copeland; both in fine worker shape; top left two:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t16.jpg $85.00
WH38 Three polished steel calipers, two spring joint that are
unmarked, but of good quality, one a friction joint by
Lufkin; in sound worker shape, with some rust spots that
will clean; top right three:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t16.jpg $25.00
WH39 Two older dividers and double caliper; sound workers in
ready to use condition; bottom three:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t16.jpg $25.00
WH40 Stanley #112 cabinet scraper; in essentially new condition,
with full length original blade, it comes in a wooden box
that has the original box's label affixed to it (I forgot
to include that when snapping the image); dust it
and turn an edge are all that's needed to make this a
perfect working plane, it's one of Stanley's best tools
made; a great example that dates to ca.1900; top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t17.jpg $245.00
WH41 #80 cabinet scraper; a ca.1925 sweetheart example in much
nicer than usual shape, it has a later UK Stanley blade;
a simple, yet effective tool, no shop should be without
one; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t17.jpg $45.00
WH42 Unused 1 1/2" Witherby bevel edge firmer chisel with its
original steel hooped handle; not quite as massive as the
common framing chisel, and a bit beefier than the standard
paring chisel, this one has some minor tarnish spots, it's
a great example by a top American manufacturer; top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t18.jpg $85.00
WH43 Set of Goldenberg Rapes pour sculpteurs, or what we English
speakers call rifflers, in their original box; nine in
total, all made in France, most with the Goldenberg name,
they are in sound worker shape and of the best quality;
bottom left:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t18.jpg $90.00
WH44 Five Nicholson Extra slim 6" triangular tapered files in
their original box; unused, in their wrappers, ready to
use, they are perfect for filing saws; bottom right:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t18.jpg $35.00
WH45 Groping of small tools, they represent the tool chest's
'scrapple'; in fine shape, an instant collection, all
useful, the three on the right are by a L.Sawyer, who
made the next item's listing; top;
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t19.jpg $40.00
WH46 Pair of trammels; nicely made, one with two sliding brass
heads, the other all steel with one fixed; good quality,
the brass ones are stamped by their maker, L.Sawyer,
likely a machinists who worked in the area pre-1875;
bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t19.jpg $65.00
WH47 Type 2 #4 smoothing plane; this is the first plane I saw
when first visiting Walter's shop some 25 years ago, it
was tucked in a drawer under his bench, he was still using
it roughly 125 years after it was made; a nice example
from Stanley's first production of the Bailey design after
they bought him out, it has all original parts save for
the lever cap, the knob and tote have particularly nice
grain patterns to them; iron is just about used up, which
is understandable given its age, that and the lever cap
are easy to replace if that's your intent; top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t20.jpg $155.00
WH48 Boxful of old style bits; a good assortment, of many types,
they are what was commonly used in the Sheffield plated
braces and many of the earlier iron braces; bottom left:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t20.jpg $65.00
WH49 Four cabinetmaker's screw drivers; made in England, by Clay,
for Woodcraft Supply; in sound worker shape, they need a
clean, lengths from 6" to 13"; right four:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t20.jpg $60.00
WH50 W.Butcher 12" tenon saw with open handle; Walter's worker,
in ready to use shape, 12pt, minor roughness on the lower
horn, Butcher made fine stuff, Leonard Bailey supplied his
earliest planes with that firm's irons; top;
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t21.jpg $85.00
WH51 His dovetail saw by S.Biggin&Son; open handle, 10" long,
12pt, ready to use; middle:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t21.jpg $95.00
WH52 E.A.Berg Eskituna multi-tip screw driver; first I've seen,
I thought this was the typical American-make, it's gotta
be a rare product by that firm; in sound shape, one of the
four tips is selected for use, the other three folded back
to be stored out of the way; the slide is a bit tight, that
may be due to built up grime in it; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t21.jpg $55.00
WH53 Two earlier reamers, one with a very unusual shape and the
other with the typical taper; the standard design example
is very early, probably ca. 1800, the screw tip is broken
off, the other one has a turned rosewood handle and is
stamped with initials, I haven't a clue what it's function
is; top left two:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t22.jpg $65.00
WH54 Cast iron gull-wing shave with patent date embossed on the
wedged lever cap; in sound worker shape, most japanning
remains; a sound worker; top right:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t22.jpg $45.00
WH55 Unused Stanley No.1 24" extension bit holder; stamped with
the sweetheart logo, in its original perfect box, it's
ready to use; a common tool, the box is the real rarity as
it's normally all battered to bits when found; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t22.jpg $60.00
WH56 Sargent 26" transitional jointer; with all original parts,
and in much nicer than usual shape, this one is perfect
for those who enjoy the wood on wood experience; loaded
with shop dust, I've decided to leave that on it so you
can experience exactly what I did while tool spelunking
in Walter's workshop; top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t23.jpg $55.00
WH57 Stanley #28 transitional fore plane; with all original
parts, free of damage, certainly worthy as a worker, the
parts alone are worth the price; middle:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t23.jpg $55.00
WH58 Stanley #135 Liberty Bell smoothing plane; with the eagle
logo stamped in the toe, all original parts, and in sound
worker shape, it has real character, not unlike Walter's
crusty old Yankee disposition; bottom:

WH59 Wide putty knife-like tool along with three crating hammers;
use them as intended, or a martial arts weaponry, they are
in as found shape; top three:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t24.jpg $30.00
WH60 Beech spoke shave and maple scraper; the latter with a 4"
wide blade, brass plated, the former with a steel plated
sole and 2 1/4" wide blade; both in sound worker shape;

WH61 Grouping of tools found in a Victorian tool chest made for
a boy; the saw in nice, and actually usable with the miter
box, it's stamped the "DANDY"; top four:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t25.jpg $55.00
WH62 Disston D-8 20" panel saw; an 11pt crosscut, this was
Walter's worker, it's still sharp enough for softer woods,
a quick touch up should have it razor sharp; pre-WWI, with
no damage; middle:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t25.jpg $125.00
WH63 Early Boston-made saw that reads Fulton Hard & Manuf. Co.
with interesting shape and nib; listed in an 1847 business
directory, few folks realize that Boston once had a saw-
making business, some of the earliest in America; four
split nut screws secure the handle to the 17" long blade
that has a round toe and a nib that stands proud of the
back; suspicious that it may have been re-shaped, the
maker's stamping is pretty much centered on the blade, so
who knows whether it's been modified or not; top horn has
been chipped and pared down a bit, an owner branded his
name into both sides of the handle; a potentially very
important saw, more research needs to be done on this
firm; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t25.jpg $195.00
WH64 Pair of late 1800's hacksaws; well made, cast iron frames,
two different sizes, one can take a 6" blade (old one
present) the other an 8" blade (needs one); a simple cam
lever draws the blade tight; a sound design and of a fine
quality; top two:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t26.jpg $35.00
WH65 1/2" P.S.&W.Co. No.1 Ex mortice chisel; Peck, Stow and
Wilcox's top of the line chisel, this one saw very little
use and has its original handle that shows a bit of mashing
at the heel; laminated steel construction, no pitting, it's
not your usual ca.1875 piece of junk; middle:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t26.jpg $60.00
WH66 Five older socket mortice chisels; a 1/2" Underhill, a 3/16"
Ward, a 1/2" P.Merrill (a very fine quality maker), a D.
Bisbee (not familiar with this maker, but it's the earliest
of the lot), and a 1/4" unmarked example; each with old or
original handles, they'll clean to make fine workers,
eager to taste wood after sitting idle for decades; bottom
pile:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t26.jpg $155.00
WH67 Good tap and die set by Wells Mfg. Co. of Greenfield, MA;
with uncommon die holder for a common brace, it also has
a tap wrench and a standard die holder; four pairs, all
match, fit in their original wooden box, it's not your
usual mismatched pile of rusty junk so commonly found;
top left:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t27.jpg $135.00
WH68 Smaller tap and die set in its original wooden box; the
four dies are all present, it looks like the taps are
proper and matching, the smallest is snapped in two, you
can make that with one of the dies; if you have small
screws to make, this might be just the set for you; bottom

http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t27.jpg $70.00
WH69 Samuel King 1858 patent auger handle; in nearly new shape,
stamped with his name and patent date, in fully functional
condition, I've seen a few of these about but never in
this condition; two twist augers, with fixed turned wooden
handles, are tossed in for free, they make great candle
holders; right three:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t27.jpg $60.00
WH70 A spectacular matching set of eight stairbuilder's or
coachmaker's squirrel-tail ebony handle miniature planes;
four matching pairs, three of which are hollow and rounds
of various widths, the other pair being flat sole, skewed
left and right; where Walter got these shall forever
remain a mystery, I doubt he ever used them in his cabinet-
work; exquisitely made things, the brass casting is fit
perfectly with ebony handle, the captive lever caps are
steel, the blades secured with a finely knurled brass
screw; never cleaned, always together, no owner marks,
two are missing their blades, one handle split off and
needs to be glued, something that is easy to repair; about
5" long when measured diagonally over their greatest
length; so many reproductions of this style planes are
out there, these are the real thing:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t28.jpg $2885.00
WH71 An extremely rare J.R.Brown&Sharpe 24" boxwood shrinkage
rule; from the very earliest years of the partnership,
this is the first such rule that I've seen, and what a
rule; never abused, no hang hole, no owner marks, just
grime that will easily clean, if you're at all a fan of
early mensuration, or Brown&Sharpe's work, this is a
must have; this was found in a long wooden box with the
following lot of rules, it's another one of the tools
Walter (or his father) adopted from someone else's kit;
top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t29.jpg $585.00
WH72 Grouping for laminated winding sticks and three odd
special purpose owner-made rules; one a partially finished
two foot shrinkage rule that has "SAWYER" (can't read the
first initials) stamped where the maker's mark normally
is, the scales are all stamped on one side and not entirely
inked; there are two interesting custom-made maple rules
that have scales known but to their maker; the winding
sticks may be straight edges as they are uniform thickness,
they are made of mahogany with what looks like a walnut
strip applied along the long edges; an interesting lot of
stuff; bottom five:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t29.jpg $95.00
WH73 The tool chest in which the saws, Witherby chisels, screw
boxes, and a few other odds and end were found; a well built
example, with four trays, two of which have hinged covers,
I wonder what else was in the chest prior to Walter, and
his father, borrowing stuff as they needed it; with a good
amount of quality hardware inside the top tray, it measures
35" by 19 1/2" by 2" and is ready for you to fill it back up
so 125 years in the future someone can pilfer it; this one
must be picked up at the tool bunker, or, if you're patient,
delivery might be arranged as long as you're somewhere near
where I'll be before the year expires:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t30.jpg $285.00
WH74 No.4B Universal Trimmer by W.B.Fox Manufacturing Co. of
Grand Rapids, Michigan; so much better than the familiar
Lion trimmer, this cast iron beast is about 33% larger
than the Lion, is has a geared action to slice accurately
miters; in fine working shape, with all original parts,
it's the one to own for the finest work; this one has the
same delivery options as the previous:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t31.jpg $285.00
WH75 More tool chest flotsam and jetsam, a grasshopper gauge,
a narrow parting chisel, a brass protractor, and a pencil
pointer (the sandpaper is pretty much shot); four left
things:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t32.jpg $35.00
WH76 Early American forged dividers; so many of these are of UK
origin, not this one; well made, 10" long, heart-shape
thumb screw, and with delicate lines, the joint is complex,
having two slots for the mating leg to fit into; not your
ordinary crude example; middle:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t32.jpg $75.00
WH77 Tool chest leftovers, a triangular shape burnisher, an awl,
a couple good quality screw drivers, a tool handle (with
several tools, and a leather awl; right:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t32.jpg $45.00
WH78 A pile of narrow chisels; these must have been like shoes
were to Imelda Marcos for Walter, all of them are 1/4" or
narrower and are in fine worker shape; quality makers; top
pile:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t33.jpg $195.00
WH79 A similar pile of wider chisels, some of which have been
almost used up; most still in sound worker shape and are
quality makers; a good range of widths; bottom pile:

WH80 Four matching incannel gouges by Buck Brothers with a 5/8"
chisel; little used, with some storage rust that will

one is 16" long; top pile:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t34.jpg $135.00
WH81 Ten matching Charles Buck socket chisels; in little used
condition, some with tarnish that will polish, all but
one has its original turned apple handle, some handles
show banging; fine quality, pre-1900 manufacture, widths
of 1/8", 3/8", 1/2", 5/8", 3/4", 1" (ground flat at the
business end), 1 1/4", 1 1/2", 1 3/4", and 2"; a fine
worker set is waiting your clean up effort with these;

all by quality makers; bottom pile:

WH84 Barely used Acme boring machine with its original wrench
and two augers; one of the best models made, and second
in popularity only to the more expensive Millers Falls,
it's been sitting idle for over 100 years, it's about
time you put it back to work:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t36.jpg $385.00
WH85 Nice smaller tool chest with dovetailed construction and
hinged tray; not your usual sloppy effort, the two trays
keep things sorted, one is full of a bunch of twist drills
(which are included with it); made of ash, in its old
finish, the exterior has some plating at the corners to
protect, the original lock and key are present; a nice,
ca.1875 chest, that has never been mucked with, it's
perfect for carving chisels, machinist's tools, etc.;

Stanley marked blade, it's in fine overall shape; the
rosewood knob is a replacement, made to the exact size
from a period #3 plane; not an easy plane to find, and

fetches these days; top:

 ST11 Roll of little used Jennings augers; the standard set with
diameters ranging from 1/4" to 1" in 1/16" increments,
they are the best pattern for use in hardwoods, the lead
screw pulls them into the work; from ca.1960, the set was
offered in a plastic roll to provide more compact storage,
the original fabric rolls were phased out after it was
found that they encourage rust; bottom:

ST15 #62 low angle plane project; as-found, in need of a real
clean, and with all original parts save for the tote; lots
of parts to salvage or you can bring it back to life, there
are no visible chips about the mouth, I can't say for
certain there are no cracks under the grime, I had a good
look with a magnifying glass and see none, but the sole
does need to be lapped; a small ding along the side of the
 casting has no impact on its use; a worthy candidate for
tool resuscitation; top left:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t62.jpg $125.00
ST16 #62 two-foot, four-fold fully brass bound boxwood rule; a

it was used just a few times and then forgotten; the most
popular saw set today, it's perfect for general work on

plump vial cutouts give this one a nice look; 100$ original,
a few minor rubs to the finish, you'll go sometime before

Stanley Rule and Level stampings, the cane is stamped
with Scribner's scales to compute the number of board
feet (sawn) from a log; likely ca.1875, this one is free
of breaks/cracks, the cap and tip are original; all of
the original finish is gone, it has an even patina over
the 36"; most of these are not stamped with the Stanley
name, this is a decent example; bottom:

on the cocobolo head, this is a nearly new condition
example of Stanley's best selling premium quality brace;

combination planes made, this is a very clean nickel
plated example that retains 95% of that; 11 cutters, plus
the slitter, original sleeve, it would be difficult to
find a cleaner one; does what the dedicated wooden and
#39 dados do, but for less cost than a pile of those;

ST33 #98/#99 side rabbet pair; sound workers, with no damage,
the #98 has its stop, the #99 doesn't (the first models

nose sections can be removed for stopped work; a bargain
pair; bottom left two:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t87.jpg $135.00
ST34 #53 adjustable mouth spoke shave; a 1920's sweetheart
model, with all original parts, 75% japanning and in

it well for irregular and regular curves; bottom:

ST43 #55 hollow face spoke shave; a 1920's example with the

  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t96.jpg $155.00
ST46 #94 four-foot, four-fold fully brass bound rule; often
called the carriagemaker's rule, this rule is ideal for
larger work; from the 1920's, with sweetheart logo, owner
initials stamped inside, it saw use and has no finish on
it, the alignment pins are gone; still 100% usable, and
much less money than what a clean one fetches; left:

ST47 #48 match plane with the uncommon third cutter that allows
it to work thicker stock; a barely used ca.WWI example
that saw very little use, the bright plating is 99%, with
some storage tarnish spots; about as nice as they come,
the original box is present, with the picture label, it's
in expected scruffy condition; the most popular metallic

filed a very neat "M" along the edge; a perfect worker
that does it all; right:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t98.jpg $135.00
ST49 #10C corrugated jack rabbet plane; a ca.WWI model with
all original parts, V-logo on the iron, 80% japanning,
some expected wear to the exterior, it's by no means a
dog, and is a decent example of a difficult to find
model; top:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t99.jpg $375.00
ST50 #60 1/2 low angle block plane; a ca.1955 example, with
all original parts, barely used, no damage at all, and
with the original tatty box; all this one needs is a
honing; a very popular smaller plane, the mouth is
adjustable for fine/coarse work; top:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t100.jpg $60.00
ST51 #608C corrugated Bed Rock jointer; a ca.WWI model, with
all original parts, "BED ROCK" embossed lever cap, four
line logo on the iron, no damage, expected tarnish, 90%
japanning, it'll clean to be your favorite weapon of
choice for destroying wood; top:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t101.jpg $245.00
ST52 #4 smoothing plane, unused in the original box; a ca.1970
UK model, made at a time when quality was still important,
it's equivalent to ca.1950 US production; with hardwood
knob and tote, there is a pamphlet to show how to use
the plane, it's ideal for those just starting out; top:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t103.jpg $60.00
ST53 #71 bronze rabbet shave with its original fence; used one
time, then put away, this thing glistens; from the 1920's,
with the sweetheart iron; guaranteed to be 100% proper;
top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t119.jpg $290.00
ST54 26" #93 fully brass bound mahogany level; as clean and
nice as they come, this WWI model (with V-logo stamped
in the vial cover) was used maybe twice and then was
forgotten; worthy of an original box, in never need
upgrade condition, the only thing more difficult to find
than mint saw is mint levels; a great example; bottom:

WOOD PLANES
**** ******

WP1 Tiny, and earlier, Bill Carter miniature boxwood rabbet
plane; 1 1/4" long, stamped with his initials, good patina,
and made to the finest tolerances, it's an uncommon model
of Bill's work; ex-Tom Witte collection, he purchased this
directly from Bill during the 1980's; bottom right:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t41.jpg $190.00
WP2 McVicar shouldering plane with quadruple dovetailed boxing,
a most uncommon feature for this kind of plane; a design
 peculiar to Scotland, most of these are owner made, this
one by a manufacturer; used to make a clean tenon shoulder,
they can also cut a dovetail (for a sliding dovetail); in
sound shape, nicely cleaned, all original, owner mark is
stamped over maker's name, 7 3/8" long, a very nice
example; top left:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t54.jpg $145.00
WP3 Strange owner made double side rabbet; cuts left and right,
it has a mahogany grip attached to a brass sole that is
slotted for the cutters; 4 3/8" long, in good worker
shape, these planes seem to come in an infinite range of
designs; top:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t67.jpg $65.00
WP4 Marples 6" smoothing plane; barely used, still with the
trade label on the left side, single iron, it's a good
size for planing smaller areas prior to your finer planes;
top right:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t68.jpg $45.00
WP5 1/8" and 3/16" slipped beads by Moseley&Sons; fully boxed
soles, in sound worker shape, no damage, uncleaned, they
are a perfect size for cabinetwork; not your usual blah
beads, the stop may be removed to work each plane deeper
into the wood for the times you use hollows and rounds
to mold adjacent to the bead; owner marks; top left two:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t72.jpg $115.00
WP6 As-found Moseley moving fillister with fully boxed shoulder
and wedge nicker; in need of a clean and oil, this one saw
little use, it should clean to be a fine worker with a bit
of effort; rust on irons, this style plane is the best for
cutting rabbets in any direction; top right:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t72.jpg $90.00
WP7 Double iron sash molder with unique brass wedges; made by
Stewart, it cuts a very nice ogee and quarter round profile;
dark patina, usual owner marks, a couple nail holes in the
bottom of the fence; it's surprising how much more mass is
added to the plane with brass wedges; bottom:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t72.jpg $135.00
WP8 5/8" Roman ogee by Routledge; cleaned and oiled, in sound
worker shape with no modification, no owner marks, it'll
make a fine worker for the classic profile that has un-
limited applications; left:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t76.jpg $75.00
WP9 Different profile of reverse ogee, fillet, and cove by
G.Berry; a fairly compact profile that cuts 7/8" deep by
5/8" wide; in sound shape, uncleaned, owner mark, no
modifications, it's not a sash plane; right:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t76.jpg $155.00
WP10 Unused Marples grooving plane with three different width
cutters; in the original box, this is the wooden version
of the very popular Record 043; perfect for making small
drawers and boxes, the cutters are 1/8", 3/16", and 1/4";
still with full decal on the side, all it needs is a
honing; left:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t90.jpg $125.00
WP11 Very rare J.R.Noble/Youngstown (Ohio) 3/4" bolection
molder; unrated in AWP, this fine example saw barely any
use and is marked on the toe and heel with the maker's
name, with the location on the toe; broad round chamfers,
it has a ca.1825 look to it; no cracks in the boxing,
never cleaned, no owner marks, the original stubby wedge
has a Pittsburgh look to it; I never knew any wooden
planemakers were in Youngstown until I found this one;
a significant wooden plane:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t102.jpg $285.00
WP12 I.Sorby (Punch logo) 7/8" square ovolo; I can't recall
seeing this logo stamped on a wooden plane, this one was
maybe used once, then put away after the owner stamped
his name in it; it's what wooden planes looked like when
purchased new; left:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t106.jpg $85.00
WP13 Same as previous, but 7/8" ogee; another practically unused
plane with the profile of endless possibilities; right:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t106.jpg $95.00
WP14 18th century jointer by John Green; in remarkably fine
shape for its age, with broad rounded chamfers, offset
tote (horn is chipped), it still has the original single
iron (some pitting); sole does not show the normal wear
found on bench planes, it can still be used; no owner
marks, this is a nice plane, given its age; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t107.jpg $195.00
WP15 T.Turner sash fillister with the odd feature of an extra
depth stop on the right side of the body; in little used
condition, never cleaned or abused, owner mark stamped over
maker's, it's in sound worker shape and can cut a rabbet
in any grain direction, the design of the plane keeps it
from wanting to work itself off the edge (like can happen
with standard rabbets, especially to those just starting
out); boxing at toe has separated a bit, that's an easy
fix; a lot of plane for the dollar:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t108.jpg $125.00
WP16 A great worker skewed half-set of even number hollow and
rounds by Hields/Nottingham; no reworks, nail holes, etc.,
they are in far nicer than typical condition; with owner
mark, one sole is stained, it's a quality set to last
you a lifetime:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t109.jpg $890.00
WP17 J.Kellogg/Amherst, MA #16 hollow and round pair; in good
worker shape (still with shavings in the throat from the
last time used), they are fresh out of chest; a bit dirty
from storage, they'll clean to be much nicer than usual
shape;; 1 1/2" across the width of the irons, no owner
marks, the hollow has two nail holes in each side, from
when a fence was applied, this is a very common thing to
find on such planes; top two:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t114.jpg $75.00
WP18 1 1/2" boxed rabbet by C.Warren/Nashua; an odd feature with
the right edge boxed, this one saw limited use, is dirty
from sitting idle, and with owner marks; some wedge finial
banging, it'll make a fine worker; bottom left:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t114.jpg $50.00
WP19 3/4" dado by C.Warren/Nashua; barely used, dusty from
storage, no owner marks, it's a very nice example that's
perfectly suited for today's stock; dado planes are a
real joy to use, and are one of the best for those starting
out using wooden planes; bottom right:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t114.jpg $80.00
WP20 J.Stevens/Boston 1/2" quirked ovolo and astragal; a nice
profile, with lots of curves packed in a compact size; as
found, in need of a clean, boxing has some roughness, the
iron is rusty; by no means a dog, the plane wasn't used
all that much, it just sat for a very long time; no owner
marks:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t116.jpg $55.00
WP21 I.Cox ca.1800 reverse ogee and fillet; sized for 3/4" thick
stock, this one also saw little use and is dirty for sitting
around for 175+ years; some staining to the sole, the wedge
needs to be replaced; a worthy plane for restoration, it
has very nice proportions; no owner marks:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t116.jpg $35.00


MISCELLANEOUS
*************

MI1 Well made bronze and mahogany squirrel tail rabbet plane;
from the Detroit area, it was likely used in the early
automobile manufacture; good patina to the bronze and
color to the mahogany, it measures 5 1/2" along the sole;
boat-shape casting, the thick iron is secured with a
metal wedge that has a thumb screw; not your usual low
quality example; top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t38.jpg $115.00
MI2 Nickel plated miniature vise with interesting adjustment
feature; uses a spring-loaded sliding rack that engages
the casting that mounts on the table, this allows quick
adjustment, with the common screw to tighten it; well
made, the jaws are crosshatched to secure the work; no
damage, most plating, possibly manufactured, jaws are
7/8" long; bottom left:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t38.jpg $75.00
MI3 Millers Falls No.2A eggbeater drill; a little used example
of one of the most popular drills ever made, it works
smoothly, has most finish, decal remnants on the handle,
which unscrew to store the bits (two original, and some
other twist drills are inside); ready to use out of the
box; top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t39.jpg $75.00
MI4 Clean Yankee No.75 ratcheting screw driver and drill; an
over-engineered thing of the finest quality, with a stout
two-jaw chuck, ratchet works fine, it's the old style
cordless drill you can use anywhere and anytime; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t39.jpg $75.00
MI5 Clean Record 05 1/2SS oversize jack plane; with all original
parts, only need of a honing, the SS denotes the stay set
feature, which allows for quick honings while maintain the
iron's set; a bit more mass than the Stanley equivalent;
top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t40.jpg $115.00
MI6 W.R.Harling/London ivory drafting rule; in fine shape, free
of chips/stains, hint of yellowing, with lots of complex
scales to solve all of today's complex arithmetic problems
save for the national debt; 6" long; top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t41.jpg $85.00
MI7 Different double end adjustable nut wrench, "THE PETERBORO";
5" long, made in England, in sound worker shape, with usual
tarnish; more than likely used on bicycles; bottom left:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t41.jpg $115.00
MI8 Unused Plumb hatchet; from the 1950's, with all original
labels, this was found in an old hardware store clean out
in Toledo, Ohio; best quality, and ready to use; top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t42.jpg $85.00
MI9 Ebony handle saw wrest with split nut screw driver at the
tip; by Sorby (with Punch logo), 9 1/2" long, it's used to
 set saws, ebony is much too fine a wood for that chore; in
much nicer than usual shape; middle:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t42.jpg $85.00
MI10 Patented complex combination tool; one of the strangest and
multi-functional tools of its kind, this one is 100%
complete and free of damage, the tool, when rarely found,
is normally missing the sliding cutter for the can opener;
7" long, it's the Swiss Army knife of ca.1910; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t42.jpg $185.00
MI11 Victor No.12 pocket block plane; an as found example that
saw use, but is still respectable; all original parts, a
bit of pitting at the heel of the iron, japanning is 50%;
priced below book value; top left:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t44.jpg $385.00
MI12 8" dividers with leaf spring for fine adjustment; no
maker's mark, but likely Peck, Stow & Wilcox, the are in
ready to use condition; top right:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t44.jpg $35.00
MI13 Disston cast iron folding saw jointer; probably the best
design offered for jointing saw teeth level; in clean
condition, with file; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t44.jpg $45.00
MI14 Four older cranked bevel edge paring chisels by Buck Bros;
with original handles (have owner's paint scheme to act as
identification), they are as found and in need of a quick
clean; widths of 1/4", 1/2", 1", and 1 1/2"; will make
perfect workers; left:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t45.jpg $185.00
MI15 Odd and massive bronze sliding bevel with butt locking
screw; a very well made thing, it resembles the model
manufactured in Detroit (name escapes me); weighs around
3lbs, it has a great patina to it; body is 11" long, the
steel blade is a replacement, that can easily be made to
look old, if that's your desire; a pretty tool; right:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t45.jpg $285.00
MI16 Miniature cooper's brace made during the early 1980's by
E.M.Bernard of Wisconsin; ex-Tom Witte collection, he
told me that the maker was a MWTCA member who made a few
of these, he probably should have made it a career as it's
so nicely done and perfectly scaled; 8" long, with bit,
it's a working tool that could today fool most people as
a 100+ year old tool; top left:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t47.jpg $175.00
MI17 Another miniature brace from the same source and provenance,
this one a carpenter's brace with center bit mounted in a
wooden pad; curved frame, the head has a ebony and ivory
inlay; a nice little tool, the brace itself is 8" long;
top right:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t47.jpg $175.00
MI18 Unfinished boxwood two-foot, four-fold boxwood rule taken
from the Smallwood factory hoard; in perfect shape, you
can add whatever graduations you wish, it's a fine quality
thing that is now perfectly seasoned and no longer prone
to warpage; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t47.jpg $40.00
MI19 Lie-Nielsen #212 bronze scraper; may have been used once
and then was put away; top right:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t48.jpg $145.00
MI20 Windsor beader with both original cutter disks; stamped
with the patent date on the 11" long turning, it has never
been cleaned and saw little use; good patina to the brass,
the fence was relocated once (for special use, as intended)
and is now back at the original position, it's this feature
which made it popular; pre-dates the Stanley #66 and is so
much nicer looking than that tool; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t48.jpg $185.00
MI21 Five E.A.Berg bevel edge butt chisels; with their original
handles that have been battered, but are still functional,
two steel hoops are MIA; widths of 1/4", 3/8" (missing
hoop), 1/2", 1 1/2" (missing hoop), and 2"; still with
lots of life left to them, Berg chisels are eagerly sought
out for their finest Swedish steel; left:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t49.jpg $195.00
MI22 Different smaller cast iron router with carved wooden
handle that screws into the circular casting to secure
the 1/4" cutter; about 6 1/2" long, the cutter is extra
long for deep routing; bottom right:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t49.jpg $65.00
MI23 Stearns jointer gauge in its original box; used once or
twice, with all original finish, this is a fine example of
a tool that's easier to use and more rugged than the #386;
ready to use for jointing edges at right angles to the
face of the board and for beveling edges; top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t50.jpg $110.00
MI24 Millers Falls No.5 ratcheting auger handle; maybe used
once and then put away, ready to use, the handles can
be arranged in the standard way or at right angle to
each other; a rugged tool for rugged work; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t50.jpg $65.00
MI25 Extra clean and little used massive cooper's head shave
by D.R.Barton; all this one needs is a sharpening, most
examples look like they came out of a scrap yard, this
one managed to escape real work; finest quality, by a
firm that sold more cooper's tool to the trade than
any other; top left:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t51.jpg $95.00
MI26 L.&I.J.White cooper's adze; with an adze end for rough
shaping, and a hammer face, this tool can find use in all
sorts of work now that wooden barrels are practically
extinct; as found, in need of a clean, will make a fine
worker, White, a Buffalo, NY maker, was a rival to Barton,
they were probably the second largest supplier of cooper's
tools during the boom times of America's past; bottom
left:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t51.jpg $80.00
MI27 Smaller hollowing drawknife; a smith-made example with
wooden handles, it has primitive appeal to it; as found,
in need of a clean, it'll make a good worker; about 9 1/2"
across, the curved portion is almost a full semi-circle
of a 3" diameter; right:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t51.jpg $45.00
MI28 Earliest model of the McClellan's Patent corner brace with
the original metal side handle; a brace that can be twisted
into all sorts or arrangements to suit the job at hand, its
design evolved over time, this, the first, is the most
difficult to find, especially with the side handle; in sound
shape, all original parts, nicely cleaned, a bit of original
plating remains here and there, it's a must have for those
 who are into braces; top:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t52.jpg $385.00
MI29 Combination brace manufactured by Atkins&Sons; I can't
recall the name of it's inventor, but it's the design
that has a detachable handle that's intended to serve two
roles - turn it into a drill and lose it, the latter of
which occurred with this one (and most others); a well
made tool, it functions fine as a brace, you can roll
your own crank or search the glove for a crank; bottom:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t52.jpg $95.00
MI30 Clean E.A.Stearns flexible sole spoke shave; with a steel
sole that can be adjusted for regular or curved work, it's
what you'd get if you put a Stanley #113 plane and a #53
spoke shave in a blender and mixed for 15 seconds; a well
made thing, the sole is free of pitting, the mouth can
be set for coarse/fine work, 95% japanning remains, a hint
if superficial rust on the cutter's heel, it's difficult
to find them cleaner; bottom:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t53.jpg $125.00
MI31 Southington Hardware Hold Fast 6" sliding bevel; the
metal version with 50% nickel plating, a locking lever
secures the blade in place; a rather uncommon model;
bottom left:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t54.jpg $55.00
MI32 Spofford Patent 12" sweep brace; rosewood head and grip,
as found, in need of a clean, a simple design that can
accept nearly all kinds of augers, it'll make a fine
worker; right:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t54.jpg $75.00
MI33 Starrett 18" combination square with three heads; a sound
example on an uncommon length rule, the square head has
the crosshatch casting, the other two heads the smooth
casting; original vial and scribe, in sound worker shape,
minor tarnish on the rule; top:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t55.jpg $95.00
MI34 Disston 16" tenon saw; with an overall dark patina, the
saw is still sharp enough to use on softer woods; a clean
and refinish of the handle will make it look much nicer,
it's by no means a dog; an uncommon length; top:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t56.jpg $85.00
MI35 Steiger's Patent cooper's shave; an 18" long tool, with a
2 1/2" wide iron, the sole is slightly concave; a rugged
tool, in sound worker shape, the handles may be older
replacements; middle:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t56.jpg $55.00
MI36 Odd spirit level that functions as a 'primitive' inclino-
meter; at first glance, it looks like any other cleaned
brass plated mahogany level, but closer examination reveals
that the vial cover has a sliding frame that can move along
the entire length of the slot to allow referencing the
bubble within the frame and thereby maintaining a standard
pitch; nicely made, there is a label underneath the vial
with handwriting; 12" long, it's the first of its kind
I've offered; top:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t57.jpg $145.00
MI37 Decorative try square with elaborate molded treatment at
ends of ash grip and 12" blade; a user-made tool, its
owner decided to make it standout from normal run of the
mill efforts; in sound shape, with no damage; bottom:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t57.jpg $135.00
MI38 Cast iron hollowing shave; commonly called a heel shave,
the design was popular amongst cobbles to work shoes,
the tool is now used for general woodworking where a
hollow needs to be worked; a well made tool, in need of
a clean, with adjustable mouth, it's 8" long; top:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t58.jpg $55.00
MI39 Starrett 4" combination square; a nice worker, uncleaned,
with no damage; bottom left:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t58.jpg $50.00
MI40 Odd cast iron saw wrest with telescoping feature and and
fulcrum; never seen another, it's likely an American effort,
there's a name stamped in it, but I can't read it; a hair-
line crack along the top of the handle is what doomed the
design's success due to all the stress at that point when
bending teeth; bottom right:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t58.jpg $45.00
MI41 Great pair of brass handle scissors/shears by T.Wilkinson
& Son of Sheffield; 12" long, these escaped much use and
have a mellow patina to the brass; brass handles are not
easily found on scissors, this is only the second pair I
have ever owned; top:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t59.jpg $285.00
MI42 Disston 8" dovetail saw with closed handle; as found, in
need of a clean, free of damage, the fine teeth seem to
be sharp enough for softer woods, a quick touch-up with
a file will guarantee that; a good quality saw; bottom:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t59.jpg $95.00
MI43 Barely used Atkins&Sons saw set; designed to be whacked
with a hammer, it's a simple, yet effective, tool in next
to impossible to find condition; bottom left:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t60.jpg $55.00
MI44 Preston bit handle; designed to accept the common center,
nosing, shell, etc. bits, the boxwood handle has a side
screw to hold the bit in place; supplied with a split
nut screw drive bit, perfect for saw doctoring, the wood
has been cleaned, and has some minor staining; bottom
right:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t60.jpg $45.00
MI45 Record holdfast with original collars; designed to secure
 work to the bench while you turn it into splinters, this
 is the most popular design ever sold; minor finish wear,
 it's in sound worker shape; top:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t61.jpg $65.00
MI46 Six barely used Swiss Made carving chisels nestled in their
lovely original styrofoam package; a variety of shapes for
those just starting out; finest quality; bottom left:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t61.jpg $95.00
MI47 Decorative wooden shave with semicircular cutter; likely
used to work handles, this thing has carving on all
surfaces to make an otherwise mundane tool into a thing
of beauty; 10" long, in sound shape, the wedge and iron
are replacements (former is boxwood), you can carve what-
ever you wish on that, it's still a lovely thing as is;
bottom right:

MI48 Pair of older drawbore pins; with octagonal ash handles,
always together, owner name stamped in wood, 13" long;
I think these are nicer looking than the more massive

MI49 Sargent No.407 #2 size smoothing plane; an earlier model
with mahogany knob and tote (split); as found, in need of
clean, it'll make a perfect worker for less money than
what the Stanley equivalent costs; has an iron with the
Lakeside logo stamped in it, that's an older replacement;
a quality plane from the era when Sargent cared about
that; bottom:

that); top:

MI51 Advertising hammer for the American Hoist and Derrick Co,
of St.Paul, MN; a novelty piece that surprises whomever
picks it up, it's made of wood, but looks to be the real
thing; probably from the 1920's, it's in fine shape,
showing expected scuffs from being handled; bottom left:

MI52 Extra clean Winchester No.9650 framing square; still with
most of the white finish in the graduations, the tool was
offered by the famous gunmaking firm when it decided to
branch out and offer other products made by other manu-
facturers with their brand name stamped in it; one of the
less common tools and in most uncommon condition; top:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t64.jpg $135.00
MI53 Wild and most decorative brass triangular square and plumb
with gothic and thistle cutouts; made by a skilled crafts-
man who sought to make his shame the bland efforts done by
others; 20" along the base, a thicker gauge brass, nicely
cleaned, guaranteed to be old and not some modern East
Anglia effort, the plumb bob is no doubt a good replace-
ment; a thing of beauty, stamped with what probably is its
maker's name; bottom:

MI54 Unused Independence Tool dovetail saw as produced by Pete
Taran and yours truly over 15 years ago; visionaries in
the world of high performance saws, it now seems like
everyone has tried their hand at making them, each with
proclamations that theirs is the best and that they hold
the true secrets to successful sawing; the only wood this
 one tasted was during its test cut, there are some minor
tarnish spots from storage, it's a fine example of the
first modern effort at making faithful reproduction of
the originals that went extinct long ago; bottom:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t65.jpg $195.00
MI55 Uncommon brass back Disston backsaw with the carved apple
handle; 12" blade, made ca.WWI, as found, never cleaned
owner pricked initials on the backside of the spine, this
is the first brass back version of this saw I've offered;
it'll clean to make a fine worker, the brass back saws
were not as popular here in America as they were in
England; top:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t66.jpg $285.00
MI56 Barely used Richardson 10" tenon saw; the cleanest I've
offered, spine still has a good amount of bluing, the
blade overall shiny, with some minor tarnish, no owner
marks, most finish on the handle, original teeth are
still sharp enough; a great example; bottom:

MI58 Disston stair saw; a sound worker, with the a 6" blade
that can retract into the body so that a uniform depth
of cut can be made; no damage, and in sound worker shape,
the saw can be used for sawing in any dado, rabbet, tenon
shoulder, be they stopped or not; bottom:

present; bottom:

MI65 Good ebony and brass marking and mortice gauge; solid
brass head lends plenty of mass during use; not your usual

quality tool, and will prove to be your favorite gauge;

bottom:

MI68 Clean, probably unused, pump drill; four-jaw chuck pinches
the bit firmly in place, the brass flywheel adds the mass
to spin the thing as the turned wooden handle is raised
and lowered; for the finest drilling, it's also handy for
starting fire when you're playing Bear Grylls dining on
skunk scent glands; left:

MI69 Yankee No.41 push drill stored in a felt-lined owner made
mahogany box; made by North Bros., prior to Stanley's
purchase of the firm, it saw careful use and is still in

nails do the same as the drill points; right:

blade; bottom:

MI75 Gunmetal smoothing plane with exotic wood stuffing (has a
dark finish, I can't tell which species it is); nicely
cleaned, oddly the countersunk screws (to secure the
stuffing) is MIA; very fine mouth, a small ding at the
back corner of the mouth, it'll make an excellent worker;
top:

MI76 Gunmetal Irish pattern chariot plane with lovely grained
exotic wood that glistens (almost looks like a darker
satinwood); 9 1/4" long, original deep blue color finish
 on the interior, fine mouth makes it a perfect worker,
 that was pulled-off by inserting a crosswise dovetailed
 piece; nicely cleaned, all it needs is a honing; bottom:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t80.jpg $285.00
MI77 Different, and massive, barrel-making plane; designed to
be attached to a harness on a lathe, the plane is moved
over a spinning barrel to smooth its exterior (at least
that's what the worker hopes, and not having his head
torn off if the barrel pops off the centers or the
harness breaks); a model I've never seen before, the
long turned handle can be adjusted up or down, this example
has a bit more creature comforts than the common design,
this one may have been made this way to make the plane
easier and safer to use; top:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t81.jpg $285.00
MI78 Odd lumber measuring device with cast iron 'traveler' that
clicks at two feet increments as it's rolled down the
board; with an integral cast counterweight, to align it
properly when measuring, this looks to be a manufactured
thing, but there are no marks on it; the wooden shaft has
a simple scale and a hook to reference the edge of the
board; in fine shape, with no damage, expected finish
wear, it's 38" long; a neat and decorative tool; top:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t82.jpg $285.00
MI79 Disston No.43 combination saw; incorporating a rule along
the spine, a scribe in the handle (missing, as it common),
a square at the leading edge of the handle, and a cross
level (one vial replaced), this was the company's most
complex saw offered; a decent example offered for
restoration, this one looks to be an earlier offering as
it's stamped with the model number; top horn has been
docked a bit, the rule numbering is weak, it's been
sharpened a few times, but is still a respectable saw
priced considerably less than what whizzed up ones have
fetched on web auction sites; second from top:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t82.jpg $295.00
MI80 Flexible steel lumber scale that uses split nut screws to
attach the wooden handle; definitely a manufactured tool,
but with no markings, the scales appear to be etched into
the steel; the hook at the end has barbs to grip the wood;
good patina, probably pre-1875, overall length 36"; if
you're into lumbering tools, it'll compliment your
collection; second from bottom:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t82.jpg $135.00
MI81 Fine bearded axe by James Howarth; a very desirable
pattern for shaping prior to finer tools, the bevel is on
one side, the other relatively flat; with an old, maybe
original, curved handle, it has a great balance; in
better than usual shape, with some of the expected minor
pit spots, those will polish out; laminated steel, it's
a great example by a great firm; bottom:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t84.jpg $190.00
MI82 Five Wenzloff saws, of various sizes, in barely used
condition; an instant pile, three are by his hand, two

want instant gratification:

MI84 Brass plumb bob with spool made from plough plane parts; a
good quality plumb bob, the steel point is in fine shape,
the spool is made up of two plough plane nuts screwed onto
shortened arms; in fine shape, a clever idea for reusing
damaged plough plane parts; right:

MI86 Dovetail jig with two different pitch brass templates; a

jaws added later (as it was designed to accept); uncommon
size; top:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t89.jpg $90.00
MI88 Interesting iron brace with nicely curved frame; likely a
European product, it's well made with a two-piece grip
secured with pewter bands; lever-activated chuck, turned

never cleaned, a nice brace; bottom:
  http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t91.jpg $185.00
MI89 Uncommon A.A.Woods hollow auger brace; designed to be
used by those who are turning round tenons all day, it
eliminates the set-up time swapping augers, spoke pointer,
and hollow auger on a single brace; all the fine features
of the Woods' design, it's the best hollow auger design
made, it self-regulates as you adjust its diameter from
1/4" to 1 1/4" diameter; still with its original depth
stop; top:

MI91 K5 1/2 oversize jack plane; a Stanley-made old style Bed
Rock carrying the Keen Kutter brand name for the hardware
giant E.C.Simmons of St.Louis, this plane is exactly what
the Stanley is save for the embossing; same fully machined
bed for the frog, same adjustment features, and same
quality, you're getting an old style #605 1/2 for less
money with this one; top:

MI92 Different shape 6" nickel plated cast iron lever by Crescent
Tool Co.; a very popular level, this one is rectangular, a
shape I can't recall seeing before as all others are
trapezoidal; in sound shape, most plating remains, stamped
with the maker's name on the vial plate, it's simple design
allows the vial casting to rock on the main casting when
adjustment is needed; middle:

MI98 Rare, new old stock Disston saw gauge; with all nuts, and
never mounted on a saw, this 22" long gauge will instantly
make your cherished saw (can be Disston or otherwise) a
precision tool while greatly increasing its value; rarely
found mounted on a saw, and when so often missing a nut or
in ratty shape, this one is 100% complete and only has
tarnish from sitting idle; bottom:

MI100 Millers Falls No.67 router; identical in all regards to
the much more common Stanley #71, but for less money,

MI101 Very rare matched set of four Preston corner clamps with
the original chain; the first such complete set I've

you'll go a long time before seeing another such set;
bottom:

MI102 Union #42 (Stanley #49 equivalent) match plane; the
narrower of the two sizes that Union and Stanley offered,
this one is fee of damage, with most finish, as good as
a Stanley (in fact, Stanley re-sold them with their name
on it after buying out Union), both original cutters, all
it needs is a honing; less costly than the Stanley; top

he is) stamped on them; top right:

MI104 A most interesting forged nail puller and scribe tool; I
really like this thing as it has great form, primitive
charm, and a unique combination of tools; 20" long, it
has the nail puller at one end, it gradually tapers down
to a pinpoint scribe at the opposite end; there's no good
reason to combine these function (at least that I can
figure out), but someone thought to do so mid-1800's, it's
a certainty that there isn't another like it anywhere;

MI105 Clean and uncommon Ulmia miter jack; made by the firm
that made the fine wooden planes, this one is made to the
same exacting standards and has a metallic screw to adjust
the sliding jaw; roughly 2" long, showing no real signs of
hard use, it's in fine worker shape and ready to use; a
handy aid for shooting miters true with a common bench
plane, the best cabinetmakers had them; top:

MI106 Log caliper to measure the board feet in 8' to 22' long

MI107 A household tool, for those of you who are sick of banging
rocks against your soiled laundry, a clothes wringer, The
Horse Shoe Brand, in barely used condition; found in an
Ayer, MA barn, still with grunge, and no damage, it could
 use a clean prior to use, it's too bad it can't clean
itself; I decided to put this on the list so I can broad-
cast the local joke around here how, when traveling Rt.2
west, you must first pass Ayer before entering Shirley;

MI108 In keeping with the household (and somewhat potty humor)
theme, an L.S.Starrett food chopped, made in Athol, MA;
most of you probably don't know that Starrett's empire
was first built upon this gizmo, it shows the ingenuity
of Starrett before he launched his world famous machinist
tool empire; as the crank is turned, the knife raises
and lowers while the tub turns one increment (or doesn't
turn, if you disengage the arm); from the same barn as
the previous (traveling Rt.2 west of Shirley finds you
in Athol), it has nearly all its original finish and
pinstriping, the clip that holds the tub's arm is a
replacement; no more tears from chopping onions, the
thing can probably also drill for oil; right:

MI109 Neat little oil can with soldered brass label; made by
The Central Stamping Co. of NY, the brass cap is
present; roughly a half-pint in size, it probably was
used to oil the previous item, being from the same
location; a few pinhead holes on the sides will prevent
you from ever using it, but you'd never use it anyway;

farther west of Shirley, and is also on Rt.2; right:

MI111 Group of quality chisels, four framing and two wider
parers; as found, in need of a clean, the framing chisels
are laminated steel, widths of 1" (the nicest of the lot,
and little used, just rusty), 1 1/2" (with stubby original
handy), another 1 1/2" (no handle, socket is mushroomed),
and 2" (by Underhill, original handle looks more like an
exploded cigar); parers are 1 3/4" (really exploded cigar
original handle) and 2"; a clean will reveal maker's
names, they are guaranteed to be fine workers, a bargain
lot once elbow grease is applied:

MI113 Different shape veterinarian's mouth gag; used to lever
open stubborn mouths, so that medicine pills may be
jammed into the stubborn animal's mouth; rusty, in need
of a clean, check in the handle; my mother tried one of
 these on me, after I refused to eat broccoli, I can report
 that I won that battle, as no broccoli has ever found its
 way into my stomach; you may have better results on a less
stubborn animal, perhaps a mule; top:

MI114 Crescent Tool Co. nickel plated hacksaw; the same James-
town, NY firm that brought the world some of the best
pliers ever made, this is a quality tool that has an
adjustable frame to take different length blades; most
plating remains, it's in need of a new blade; Aaron
Hernandez approved, now that his deal with Puma has been
terminated; middle:

MI115 Collins medium size axe; on its original dry handle, it's

MI116 2" bevel edge paring chisel by PEXTO; with its original
leather tipped handle, this one will clean to be a fine
worker example, it's 15" long; best quality, and the
widest standard width; a 1" bevel edge paring chisel is
also part of the deal, cleaning it may reveal the maker's
name (fingers crossed it's also PEXTO); left two:

MI117 Double spoke shave, with curved and straight blades ad-
jacent to each other; a quality, earlier cast iron shave,

MI118 Older initial stamp of "HI"; probably from ca.1825, it's

come, no owner marks, 99.99% original finishes (have to

ful use, loads more left in it; jet black color; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/t119.jpg $115.00
MI121 L.L.Davis 18" cast iron inclinometer with nearly all the
original pinstriping; a very nice example, much nicer
than what is normally found; gently cleaned, no damage,
standard height, remnants of the machining along the
rails; a very jazzy looking tool that even non-tool
people can appreciate; top:

MI122 Eight volume book set, "The Modern Carpenter and Joiner
and Cabinet Maker" by G.Lister Sutcliffe; one of the most
comprehensive efforts, this 1903 printing has the Arts
and Crafts inspired covers; in much nicer than usual
shape, a set always together, the books are loaded with
illustrations and drawings to compliment the text; volume
1 covers Woods and their uses, and architectural styles;
volume 2 covers more about Woods and their uses, the
tools and machines; volume 3 covers drawing and drawing
 instruments, and practical geometry; volume 4 cover the
strength of timber and timber framing, and carpentry;
volume 5 covers more about carpentry; volume 6 is more
carpentry, carving, and stairs and handrailing; volume
7 continues stairs and handrailing, and airtight case
making, wood turning, and cabinetmaking; volume 8 covers
joinery, shop management, estimating, and building law
(that may be a tad out of date, though); some minor
soiling and ink marking here and there, though nothing
hideous; a great reference that all levels will find
educational:

 MORE MR.X STUFF
---------------

MrX300 Good worker Sargent No.80 double side rabbet; with the
criss-cross iron arrangement, both left and right hand
functions are built into one one plane, the nose section
can be removed to allow stopped worker; all original
parts, no damage, good amount of plating remains; top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x136.jpg $90.00
MrX301 Squirrel tail toothing plane of the style sold by top
American retailers aimed at the instrument making
trades; flat sole is 2 5/8" long, nicely cleaned, no
damage, a fine quality; bottom left:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x136.jpg $135.00
MrX302 Another squirrel tail plane, this is low angle brass
example; 2 1/2" long, 1/2" wide iron, cleaned, it's
likely owner made; bottom right:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x136.jpg $110.00
MrX303 Unused three position plane that takes double edge razor
blades to do its work; 3 1/2" long, it has bull nose,
skewed smoothing, and round sole locations to position
the blade; two of the tree lever caps are present, the
third is probably being used to plug a dike in the
country of its manufacture, Holland; a rather well-made
thing, you may even be able to shave with the thing;
top left:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x137.jpg $45.00
MrX304 Manufactured nickel plated American thumb plane that uses
a cam lever to secure the iron; I have one of these in my
collection, and have seen a few others, this is the first
I've seen nickel plated (original); well made, 3 1/2"
long, a small nick at the back corner of the mouth, nearly
all plating remains; top right:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x137.jpg $265.00
MrX305 User-made brass rabbet plane with integral handle and
open casting; 7 1/2" long, cleaned, it's a different
looking plane; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x137.jpg $85.00
MrX306 Shapely bronze carriagemaker's T-rabbet with small rose-
wood wedge (looks original); uncleaned, fine shape, with
good curvature, it's not the standard blah effort so
typical for these planes; sole is 4 1/2" long; top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x138.jpg $190.00
MrX307 Different cast iron rabbet plane where the mouth is
along the right side; looks to be manufactured, with
all original parts, no damage, japanning 75%, 7 3/4"
long; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x138.jpg $155.00
MrX308 Brass #1 reproduction; I don't know if this is a Dirty
Ernie Lemieux effort or not, but it does have some age
and some of the 'features' of that plane; dusty, it
now has a good patina; top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x139.jpg $285.00
MrX309 Cast chisel plane with two-color lignum wedge; perhaps
reworked from a bull nose rabbet, it's still a nice
plane that is useful for working up against an ob-
struction, it also serves well paring pins; 2 1/2"
long; bottom left:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x139.jpg $95.00
MrX310 3" brass miniature smoother with mahogany stuffing; a
fairly recent make, good mass, it'll make a fine worker
for trimming and shaping; bottom right:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x139.jpg $110.00
MrX311 12" brass spoke shave with adjustable mouth; an odd one
that has a hinged yoke to open/close the mouth, it
likely was owner made for the carriage trade; cleaned,
in sound shape, it'll make a fine worker; top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x140.jpg $95.00
MrX312 Homely hollow (sole profile) for general rounding work;
and one-piece body carries a 1/2" wide cutter, you'd
have to go out of your way to lose any parts on this
one; 8" long; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x140.jpg $85.00
MrX313 Sheffield plated brace in beech; a solid worker that has
been nicely cleaned, it's free of the usual checks and
damage so commonly found on these workers; top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x141.jpg $135.00
MrX314 Pair of crooked knives; old ones, free of any carvings
and damage, just sound workers with character; bottom
two:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x141.jpg $155.00
MrX315 Very nice cast router with unique adjuster and embossed
stars on the main casting; a large wing nut sets the
iron that has a brass clipped attached to it, it's
action is much nicer than that of a Stanley router;
turned mahogany knobs, japanning casting, brass collar,
this should have been what the Stanley effort was; this
is a great tool, which must have been the pride and joy
of its maker; top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x142.jpg $265.00
MrX316 Scottish chariot plane with carved rosewood wedge and
turned knob; the 4 3/4" bronze casting has a molded
toe, a strike button at the heel; a volute-like simple
carving along the sides of the wedge finial, with some
line carving on the face, add a bit more elegance to a
plane that is already jazzy looking; lightly cleaned,
 in fine shape, no owner marks; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x142.jpg $385.00
MrX317 Pair of fine rosewood scrapers; manufactured, with the
common features of downward curved handles, choice
wood, one has steel plated sole, the other uses a brass
casting to clamp the blade in place; for the finest
work; top two:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x143.jpg $145.00
MrX318 Aluminum scraper; the basic design as the previous two,
but not to the same quality, it nevertheless is in
sound worker shape; 9" long; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x143.jpg $45.00
MrX319 Birmingham Plane Mfg. Co. #3 size smoothing plane; the
more desirable model of this all metal design, it has
the integral lugs on the frog; all original parts, as
found, uncleaned, japanning looks to be 75%, the bare
metal has the textured surface (hesitate to call it
pitting) from sitting idle for over 100 years, I like
its condition just fine as it sits; three serrations
milled in the frog and chipped, it's next to impossible
to find them perfect as those are one of the fatal
flaws of the design; top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x144.jpg $495.00
MrX320 Cast iron 8" carriagemaker's T-rabbet; owner made, it's
free of damage, never cleaned, and with a good look to
it; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x144.jpg $125.00
MrX321 St.James Bay Tool Co. bronze chariot plane with Norris
style adjuster; a very nice effort, 5" long, lots of
mass, it'll make a fine worker at a cost considerably
less than a vintage one; top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x145.jpg $285.00
MrX322 4" long brass and steel grooving plane; owner made, with
brass wedge, wide mouth, cleaned, and a unique thing;
bottom left:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x145.jpg $65.00
MrX323 3 1/2" curved rabbet plane with mahogany wedge; looks to
be a recent effort, 5/8" wide iron, in sound worker
shape; bottom right:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x145.jpg $65.00
MrX324 Group of three hammers; one a plated and etched Plumb
(need good light to see the etching), one a jeweler's,
and another a tack; good quality, with original handles,
ready to use; top three:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x146.jpg $95.00
MrX325 Group of good worker scrapers; hardwood, each with a
working blade, good quality; bottom five:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x146.jpg $125.00
MrX326 Cast rabbet/shoulder plane; lots of mass to this very
nice owner-made tool that must have been inspired by
the Preston model; brass lever cap secures the 1 1/2"
wide iron, to the 8" long casting, there's a bit of
stuffing along the top and at the toe; a vernier nut
to set precisely the iron, it has a fine mouth; small
corner chip on the bed won't hinder its use; much more
mass than the cast iron efforts; top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x147.jpg $175.00
MrX327 4 3/4" round; the polished casting has a unique and
appealing look to it, it's a nicely made plane that
has a rosewood wedge to secure the iron; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x147.jpg $145.00
MrX328 Extra long molding template; working width of 12", there
aren't too many profiles that this one can't copy; in
fine worker shape, in its original box; best quality,
it's French-made; perfect for restoration of complex
plaster/wood cornices:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x148.jpg $255.00
MrX329 Carter 3 1/2" miter plane with boxwood stuffing and
wedge; made from a brass back saw, the body is shaped
adjacent to the wedge, it has an extra long snecked
iron; dovetailed bronze base, the toe and heel are
tenoned into the base; Cupid's bow steel bridge, the
plane was never used, it's a fine example made by a
fine man; top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x149.jpg $895.00
MrX330 4 1/4" cast iron pencil sharpening plane; manufactured,
a simple thing, with wide mouth, it can be used for any
application that needs something pointed; bottom left:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x149.jpg $45.00
MrX331 Brass squirrel tail miniature plane, the equivalent of
the Stanley #100; polished, in sound worker shape, a
large screw secures the iron in place; bottom right:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x149.jpg $55.00
MrX332 Brass Asian chalk line; no writing on it, good gauge to
the brass, 4 1/2" long, it looks to have some age to it,
it has two lugs to accept a belt; I don't believe it is
a recent effort; left:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x150.jpg $165.00
MrX333 5 1/4" brass plumb bob of odd construction; the cap
proper doesn't unscrew, but the top part of the plumb
bob does; steel point, good quality, not all banged up
it's in better than usual shape; right:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x150.jpg $75.00
MrX334 A.J.Wilkinson&Co. 8" folding handle drawknife; with apple
handle, this one saw little use and is in much nicer than
usual condition; all it needs is a honing to be put back
to work; top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x151.jpg $75.00
MrX335 Preston beading shave; with vernier adjustment for the
10 original cutters, it has three original fences; one
of the best beaders made by anyone, it offers the most
complex shapes; no damage, and in much nicer than usual
shape; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x151.jpg $185.00
MrX336 5" cast thumb plane with molded mahogany stuffing at the
toe; owner made, a fairly nice job of it, the shaped
lever cap has a brass thumb screw; nicely cleaned, no
damage, a good look to it; top left:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x152.jpg $190.00
MrX337 4 1/2" long miter plane-like rabbet; the casting suggests
a miter plane served as the inspiration for this one,
it's a nicely made plane that has two integral lugs to
secure the mahogany wedge; fine mouth, no damage, it'll
make a perfect worker; top right:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x152.jpg $285.00
MrX338 4" brass chamfering plane; an owner made tool, it's
designed to knock sharp corners off the work; cleaned,
it'll make a sound worker; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x152.jpg $65.00
MrX339 Odd steel smoothing plane made from a single forging;
resembling the Payson's Toboggan Plane, this may be a
manufactured thing, there's no markings on it; 10" sole,
applied wood inside the handle for a more comfortable
grip; top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x153.jpg $285.00
MrX340 Probably one of the oddest planes I've seen in some time,
this 8 1/2" long rabbet has a turned knob at the front,
its maker neglected to add a handle at the rear; the 2"
wide body has a 1" wide iron (that's the max it can
work), the rounded portion of the body is welded on;
the things that some people will do to save a dollar
without caring about saving face; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x153.jpg $65.00
MrX341 A nice patternmaker's plane with 11 soles and seven irons;
not your typical effort, the bronze casting can take any
of the soles to suit the work; never fit with a tote,
all of it is stored in a wooden box with sliding cover;
soles are 8" long:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x154.jpg $285.00
MrX342 Cast iron round (for hollowing) thumb plane with integral
cast squirrel tail handle; a nicely made plane, it has a
manufactured look to it, 2" long sole, no japanning;
top left:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x155.jpg $125.00
MrX343 Special purpose nickel plated smoothing plane with ex-
aggerated ebony squirrel tail handle; an interesting
owner made plane, the sole is slightly curved over its
1 1/4" length; top middle:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x155.jpg $235.00
MrX344 St.James Bay 3 1/2" brass smoothing plane; with extra
long spur on the tote, it's in fine worker shape, is has
a mouth finer than a Norris; top right:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x155.jpg $165.00
MrX345 Steel round (for hollowing) with applied extra long
walnut handle; perhaps to hollow the gun stocks, it's
in sound shape, with good age; 13" long; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x155.jpg $95.00
MrX346 Gunmetal chariot plane with Norris adjuster; lots of
mass to this modern effort, its maker (I assume) is
stamped in the toe, W.H.PAYNE; steel sole, the mouth
is adjustable, it has a very fine mouth, it'll prove
to be a great worker; this isn't some weekend project,
but a real effort; top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x156.jpg $265.00
MrX347 Special purpose bull nose hollowing plane; a large
mahogany handle is fit to a brass casting; 5 1/2" long,
probably a patternmaker's plane, it's in sound worker
shape; bottom:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x156.jpg $95.00
MrX348 Decorative 7" plumb bob; a fairly recent UK make, with
fancy brass part, good quality, and as accurate as a
200 year old one is; top:
http://www.supertool.com/forsale/jul/x157.jpg $125.00
MrX349 2 3/4" ebony and brass miniature shoulder plane; likely
by St.James Bay, in sound shape, it's a functional
tool; bottom:
