This is a nice, clean, antique slate roof repair tool, designed to slide under the slates of the roof, and cut the nails of the slate piece that needs to be replaced. Since the nails are usually a soft metal, this type cutter is effective in most cases to cut the nail and free the broken slate to be replaced. There was about 3 manufactures of these rippers, and this one is almost identical to the Belden Machine Co. brand that was one of the best known for quality tools, but we believe this to be made by AULD long overall, the flat straight part to slide under the slate is 24 from the tip to the L shaped part of the handle. A quality USA made antique slater's cutter in very good, useable condition!

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 vintage box of 5000 staples to fit either a Model B or DT-30 Stapling pliers by NEVA-CLOG PRODUCTS INC.

It appears about 500 staples were used, so the box is about 90% full of good staples (about 4500 of them), and a good solid box with some staining on the top. Be sure to check your pliers model first, as these staples are too heavy duty to fit into the lighter duty pliers like the model S for example. A hard to find vintage box of staples!
This is a very clean boxwood and brass trim square, made for use by a Taylor. It is 12 x 24 x .15 thick. This one is not marked by the maker, much like a Lufkin taylor's square, it is similar, but we see enough difference to believe that lufkin make this one. It's in nice condition with a nice finish on most of the wood, some scratches note near the 14 mark, and a smaller one near the 2 graduation on the short side, otherwise, a few minor stains, very little wear overall. We did check this square again a large precision square, and it is not as square as we would like to see, about 1/8 out of square over the full 12 length. There is a very mild amount of warpage on the long leg, short leg is fine. The brass, very good markings and number graduations in inches, good edges, straight wood sections. A nice one!
