This is a nice cast steel wire stretcher, suitable for stretching farm or ranch barbed wire fence or similar. The stretcher is 18 with a long handle for leverage, and a good pivot. There is a slotted space for the wire to fit into (to the right of the pivot), and when you pivot the handle that slot closes and traps the wire in a clamped position so the points can then be placed against the fence post while pulling back on the lever handle tightens, or stretches the fence wire. The handle is plenty long enough to give lots of leverage for this purpose. The only marking on the casting are D-7 on the handle, and D-8 on the head. There is no damage or rust, clean, some pitting noted, but certainly useable.

Unusual, violin shaped Tool made of wood and brass with a tin keeper. I am not certain what this tool was used for but my best guess is it is for sewing gunny sacks or burlap.

This is a nice clean, special purpose pliers with a curved jaws feature that allows the shorter L-shaped jaw to touch the longer straight jaw when completely closed, however it appears the flip latch at the end is designed to hold a part or glass for example that is about 3/16 thick when the flip latch is locked in place at the opposite end from the jaws. The clearence length in the jaws is 1-3/8 , and the width of the jaws is 1/2 x 1/8 land (on the part of the shorter jaws that touch the longer jaw. The pivot joint is very heavy duty, very snug.

The anvils are marked with the numbers 6, 7, 9 the 6 is the smallest. The stand has cast areas for bolts or screws to be used to bolt it down to a work bench or table. The stand is in very good shape no damage or rust. As you can see in the pictures the two larger anvils have cracked off stock on the sides of the cast iron sides that fit onto the stand. The anvils will set on the taper fairly tightly with all three, but the two that are cracked, they wobble to some extent in a side to side motion, so some repairs to the iron to sturdy the two up a bit would be a good idea if you intend to use these larger size anvils. The anvils are in very good shape other than the the mentioned, no rust or other damage. The stand with no anvil on it measure 12 tall overall.

This vintage Stanley Level #3 was made by and marked: Stanley Rule & Level Co. / PAT. 629162396 / New Britain, Conn. The Stanley Works is a manufacturer of a broad range of tools and hardware for home improvement, consumer, industrial, and professional applications. The company was founded in 1843 by Frederick T. Stanley, a 41-year-old merchant and manufacturer whose previous work experience included stints as a clerk on a Connecticut River steamboat and as an itinerant peddler in the South. In 1831, Stanley, in partnership with his younger brother William Stanley, had opened a small facility in New Britain, Connecticut, for the manufacture of house trimmings and door locks. Though the business failed to survive the Panic of 1837, it seemed to have served as the prototype for a second manufacturing venture in New Britain--Stanley's Bolt Manufactory--which Frederick Stanley, again in concert with his brother, established in 1843. In very good condition without splits it does have paint spots which I have shown in my pictures and it measures 3 inches high, 24 inches long and 1 3/8 inches deep. An addition to any Vintage Stanley Tool Collection. SH & Ins. will be quoted after orders placed. If you have questions feel free to contact me and thank you for looking.

This is a rare graver's (engraving) chisel The metal sleeve is marked Guaranteed Ezra F. Bowman . The handle is a dark tropical type wood, maybe ebony, or dark cocobolo. The sleeve on the handle is adjustable to hold the shank or stem part of the chisel in a slot in the handle by positioning the sleeve to grasp the chisel stem. There is a very nice chisel included also, a type which we have seen few of. The bottom of the chisel has a very slight inset gouge, in effect would engrave a double parallel lines with a hump or radius standing in the center on the steel being engraved, otherwise it is .06 wide at the cutting edge, and tapers to a width of .10 at the top of the chisel as near as I can measure to the cutting edge. The chisel part alone is about 3 long. The chisel is marked DAMASCUS 60 could be 09, and also I see 11 mark near the other number. The chisel part included has a fairly short stem, or I guess I should say, the handle can fit a stem of much long length into the slot in the handle, as the slot is about 2.3 long inside the handle for various stems to fit into. I believe the sleeve is silver or silver plated steel, and it has nice engraving on it, and a nice decorative design on it also. The wood on the handle and the sleeve are all in very good condition, no crack, very little wear. I believe that handle was designed to be a universal chisel holder/handle, about to quickly engage or disengage with any of various styles and brand names of chisel into a comfortable holder that grips the chisels as well as any custom fitted chisel handle. I am not sure, but I would suspect this handle originally was sold along with a set of graver's chisel in a chisel tool roll, but I have not seen a tool roll with the Bowman name on it as of today, still looking though. Don't miss out on this one, it is the first we have ever seen, and the first we have offered for sale!

This is a nice, clean 3/4 pound cobblers hammer that is not marked by the maker. The head has a 1.5 diameter head, and has a handle that is 11 long overall. In good+ condtion with minor wear. We do note some casting voids, or pock type pitting, generally noted on sand castings in the 19th century. The handle is solid and fits good, with a chip off the holding end, and a slight repaired split at the head end, yet very well attached and still very solid, otherwise a very nice hammer. We note the round striking surface on this hammer is very flat, not domed like we often see on newer antique cobblers hammers.
