I also have two smaller sizes available at this site. On the hex end there is a coil spring the grasps the hex bit when it is inserted keeping it from falling out.

This is an old Ship Carpenter's Bevel, marked No. 42. I believe it to be Stanley as it matches the reference book's sizes and material. It also has the original owner's name and the date marked 1872 on both sides. On condition, it has some problems, the longer brass bevel blade and the boxwood on one side have been damaged. The boxwood has a split on 5 1/2 marked and is bowed there slightly (shown in 2 pictures). The longer brass blade is a bit bent up in the same area, could be repaired, the shorter blade is in good shape. There is some peening work that has been done over the years to keep the bevel blades firm in their position, so that accounts for the marks on the brass end joints, also it may be possible that the end pins have been replaced, they are steel. There is some scratches and dings, but not too bad overall. The boxwood has a redish patina and some darkened area. The scale and the No. 42 marks are on both sides. I should mention that while the boxwood on one side is warped a bit, the other side is quite straight. This bevel was designed to transfer angles from the protractor to the work piece. This is the best one that I've seen to date of it's kind, as it is a rather thin and delicate tool. This type is quite rare, perhaps for this reason. Still a nice collector's tool overall!
This is a nice 19th Century fruitwood marking gauge or scribe with a wonderful patina. It was used, has some scratches, and dings, but looks very nice. The 18 bar has a well marked rule allowing 5/8 to 18 dimension to be set. The scibe is in good shape, can be replaced by removing 2 screws. The guide section has an interesting cast screw to hold the guide in place, it can be tighten to secure the guide in place. The thread are in good shape, but there is some evidence of an old repair to the thread as I can see an insert in that area, it's possible that this was original and the insert has the same patina as the rest of the tool. There is a steel plated surface on the inside of the guide slot, which has worked well to minimize the wear on the tool, overall the guide slide is a bit loose, not bad. There is a hole for hanging on the wall that also appears to be original. This tool was purchased from a local antique tool museum where it had been on display for several years.
This is a very scarse scraper made by Starrett. This one is posted in the old Starrett catalog as a UNIVERSAL SCRAPER similar to the No. 181 Floor, Bench, and Cabinet Scraper. It is very similiar to the Stanley No. 283 Scraper also, but I think this Starrett is a bit easier to use. It measures 9 long and has a double sided cuter with a width of 2 7/8 . This is a fine tool used for scraping insides of cabinets to removing paint and varnish. It features an easy to adjust forward swivel head that allows blade positioning in several positions. Simply turn the rear handle to loose the swivel head, position the blade to your liking, then tighten the rear handle, the blade holds in place very firmly. The wing nut on the front is to remove and hold the blade in place. The blade handle is inserted with a steel sleeve and is removeable, and can be placed on the opposite end of the blade. The top blade handle is in good working order, but it has been repaired over the years. It appears to be an old repair however. The rear handle is in very nice shape along with the rest of the tool. The number 194 is a reference number in the Starrett catalog, it is not marked on this tool, but is on the original box label. The box is worn on the corners with some fading of the paper, clear tape on one corner of the top, the bottom is very solid. Overall good condition on the box. This is a great opportunity to purchase a very rare antique tool.
Offering both these nice older nickel plated tool for one price. They are both in good working condition with some wear and small spot of light pitting on the plating, but still have a very nice appearance. The blade on the bevel gauge is 6.2 long overall.

As you may have noticed looking through our web site, I do offer many rare names in chisels. This is one of the rarest, marked on this chisel as best I can read the very small stamped mark Ernest Crucible Jordan Germany Cast Metal . The handle may not be original, I just don't know because I've not seen another like this one. It is sharp and has a bit of pitting here and there, but look good with no pitting around the cutting edge. The handle has one scrape and a few dings and scrathes, but is very solid with a large steel binding. The steel measures 5 1/4 from the cutting edge to the handle. Where can you find another?

Otherwise the handle has a nice finish with normal wear. The hardware is brass and the medallion is marked WARRENTED SUPERIOR PAT. DEC. 27, 1887 . Where can you find another?

Antique Gouge Chisel 19th Century English 9/32 Inch

Offering this nice clean set of 5 different cabinetmaker's wood shaves. They are shaped much like antique draw knives, or draw knife, but designed to function more like a smoothing or scraping tools.

Some minor modifications have been made over the years, but they are all in good working order. The blade cutting depth is adjusted by loosening the screws that hold the the split handles together, then re-tightening for desired cutter position. They all have a nice patina, no major cracks or damage, each has a cutter, some may need honing to desired sharpness. A nice looking set of tools!
This is an older low-angle plane marked Craftsman on the cutter blade. It has an adjustable cutter depth and throat and the knuckle-joint cap cover features. This is a fairly rare plane, or at least this style cap cover. The cap cover is not design to be removed by lifting the rear section like so many other brands I've seen, rather you need to losin the center screw with a screw driver. The cap holds the cutter just fine though. About 90% of the planes original paint is intact, it's bare metal surface are clean. There is a tiny chip and a hairline crack in the corner of the throat area. The crack is not uncommon on these very low angle block planes since the iron is extremely thin in terms of wall stock near the throat, but since there is an angle there and the wall stock gets thicker the further back from the throat, the crack generally will not continue past the point where it is now, under normal use. I've used it on hardwood with no problems. It is a rare very low angle plane, made for Craftsman, by Sargent.
This is a very nice 19th century hand plane called a horn plane because of it's front handle. It is 10.5 long x 1.75 cutter x 5.3 high. This one came here to the USA from Europe. It's in nice clean condition with some of the horn handle chipped off (shown in the pictures), appears to have happened many years ago as it is worn fairly smooth now. There are a few hairline wood splits that don't go to the outside, so the plane is in good working condition as well. The cutter is sharp and ready to work. The steel is marked OTTOKA SKRIVAN PRAG GARANTIE . The maker's mark is very nice, the wood has a nice patina. A well taken care of plane with less than average wear!
Offering this very clean corrugated plane clearly marked CRAFTSMAN in three places, on the blade, cap cover, and if front of the knob. The front label reads GUARANTEED HIGHEST QUALITY above the Craftsman name. Some of the label is worn off as you can see in the pictures, but it's rare to find a plane this old with the label still on it. The handle and knob are red stained hardwood no cracks, some wear on the stain. The cutter and iron is all in good+ condition with over 95% original length intact, and good clean bare metal surfaces. The black and red paint/Japanning are about 95% intact, no rust on any surfaces, very clean, well cared for corrugated (sole) plane! The cutter is sharp and near full length. This particular model is most similar to the older Stanley No. 6 that didn't have the frog adjustment screw, as this one has cutter depth and lateral cutter adjustment, but no frog adjustment. A very nice plane overall!
This is a nice clean older Stanley Defiance Iron Smooth plane No. 1204. It's about 99% like new with minor staining or darkening of the bare iron surfaces. The box is included, is quite worn, but the label can still be read although there is clear tape wrapped around it. Both the bottom and the top sections of the box have some clear tape on them. I would say the box is in average condition for a plane of this age.
This is a very nice hand formed iron draw knife with a laminated steel cutting edge. The line you see on the back side (last picture) is where the steel is laminated to the iron handle section. The hardwood handles are attached by both an iron hook at the end and also supported by the iron ferrules on the front of the handle. The handles are solid, show little wear and have a nice patina. The blade on the draw knife is good, but hasn't been honed in many years. A nice looking primitive tool to add to your collection!
Offering this good old smooth plane with several marks on it. On the cutter is marked STANLEY RULE with the type 6 arch at the top. The other marks on the cutter are L. BAILEY'S PAT. DEC. 24 1867 . The brass cutter depth adjustment knob is marked BAILEY'S PAT. AUG.31 1858 AUG. 6 1867 . There is no mark on the toe and no mark on the lateral level, all marks are consistant with the type 6 version. The wood bottom of the plane is in very good condition showing very little wear. The handle and knob are also in very good condition with no cracks on any of the wood parts. The tote has one groove on the top were the lateral had hit it sometime in the past. The upper section is all original except for a slight modifaction to the chip breaker, the extra slot above the depth adjustment slot is no needed in this version as the lateral uses the slot in the cutter. The original owner must have used this chip breaker on another plane sometime ago. All metal surfaces are black in color with some sort of very light black coating on them. There is a good percentage of original Jappaning on the iron, but it's hard to tell how much. The black coating has kept the iron part from rusting. There is some light pitting here and there under the black coating, but overall this is a very nice looking plane!
This is a hard to find bevel that was designed to transfer angles to the work piece of a ship carpenter. Both Stanley and Lufkin made these and both had the same number. The one is marked LUFKIN NO. 42 MADE IN USA . This one is very clean with good crisp numbers and brass blades and hardware. It does have a hairline crack that is very tight shown in the third picture. There is a smaller one on the other side and it is also very tight. The cracks do not brake through to the face where the numbers are on either side. This is a very solid bevel even though it has the hairlines, it is very stiff even when I apply bending presure to the center. I feel that it's in very good condition overall, as most of these I've seen are cracked well beyond this amount. Other wear and marks are minimal with seven tiny pin pricks on on the one side, seen under close inspection. Also the light crease below the Lufkin name and the stain below the 42. Lufkin bevels are as hard to find as Stanley, this one will make a nice addition to any collection!
This is a nice sharp older socket framing chisel marked OHIO TOOL CO. and the owner's intials CDJ near by. This is one of Ohio tools' best made chisel, offered in good condition ready to work. It is 15.5 long overall x 1.5 wide cutting edge, 12.0 long steel only. The handle is solid with the iron end ring a little beat up, but it did the job over the years and will continue under normal use. It appears the handle was hit with a metal hammer at one time, if a wood mallet was used the iron ring and the handle would be in much nicer shape. I have several mallets for chisel work availiable, please check my other listing if you need one. A nice solid chisel with only minor pitting and dings (none that will effect the cutting edge) and some staining. A quality tool!
Offering this nice older block plane marked DUNLAP APPROVED BL. 619-3701 on the blade and MADE IN USA on the iron. Japanning is over 95% intact and the nickel plating in about 85% intact.

Over the years I have heard the term PERFECT HANDLE but this is the first screwdriver I've seen with PERFECT HANDLE marked on it. It has a unique marking that wraps around the shank of the tool, I tried to show you the mark, but taking picture in a circle is impossible. There is more information included in the mark including what I believe reads PAT 1906 , there is also a name, THE H.D.S . There is also a 4 within a circle on the tip on both sides. This screwdriver is 8.75 long overall. Condition is good with wear on the handle, yet the handle's wood strips are solid and tightly attached. Tip has less wear, overall good condition. I've looked at alot of screwdrivers and have never seen another one like it.
Offering these two brace auger drill bits, both marked CRAFTSMAN . Both are in good condition, sharp ready to use, both have over 95% of their chrome plating intact. The are size 12 (3/4 ) ). Nice looking quality drills.
Middlesex 3 Inch Carpenter's Laminated Slick Chisel
Offering this top quality framing chisel by a rarely seen quality maker, marked MIDDLESEX MFG. CO. in very small letter on the top of the blade near the socket end. Although this carpenter slick has some dings and pitting on the steel surfaces, it is in nice shape on the bottom cutting edge with pitting on less than 5% of the bottom surface. The edge is sharp, could use some light honing. The steel is 13.87 long overall, 5 back from the cutter is the high grade laminated steel section. The handle is solid oak with no cracks, fits the socket tightly. A hard to find tool, particularly in the 3 size! Real cuts nice too!
Offering this good clean smooth plane with the mark STANLEY HANDYMAN MADE IN USA NO. H1204 on the cutter and HANDYMAN on the cap cover. It is 9.0 long x 2.0 wide cutter. A good usable plane, similar to the Stanley No. 4 plane, but less costly originally. This one has hardwood handles with about 85% of the original black paint on them, 95% of the original gray paint on the body and cap cover, very clean bare metal surface, showing very little wear overall. A nice plane that I just don't see very many of!
Offering this rarely seen Stanley Fibre Board Beveling Plane. The adjustable guide can be opened to allow up to 3/8 thick capacity. The original cutter holder is in place, designed to use razor type blades held in at an angle of your choose. There is no razor blades included in this sale. The Japanning is in good shape with about 90% intact. The handle is different from most Stanley tools I've seen, but it fits good and tight and has about 80% of the stain and vanish on the hardwood. The bottom is corrigated and is in good shape. There are no cracks, minimal wear. A nice hard to find plane!
This is a nice old German style horn plane with a nicely formed front handle, fit into both right and left hand. The cutter and the plane are both marked JOH WEISS SOHN WEIN with a half round logo lightly pressed on the wood just in front of the cutter, and an even nicer logo on the cutter with a C-clamp in the center. The plane has some wear and scratches, but is in good working condition with a sharp blade. The cutter has about 90% length left. There is two tight wood grain splits, that don't effect the use of the plane, can be seen on the left side of the cutter on top, and the other to the right side of the cutter on the bottom.
Offering this good quality smooth plane made in the USA by Corsair (Great Neck Tools New York). It is 9.5 long overall x 2 wide cutter. Other than some minor staining and some rubbed off stain on the rear handle the plane is like new. Very clean, good quality hand plane!
This is an interesting tool that I believe was used for scoring 7 wide boards as is was slid across the lenghth of the board. It's at least 140 years old and is made of hardwood, brass and steel. The handle is a separate piece held on by two old wood screws. The above name is marked on the side, was either the tool maker or owner. An interest conversation piece.
Nobles Mfg. Co. 8 Inch Adjustable Handle Draw Knife
This early patented draw knife was perhaps the first patent adjustable handle position draw knife in the USA. Patent in 1857 it show clear signs of early steel forging process, with some areas having void that appear much like rust pitting. This one has far more stock left on it than most I've seen over the years. It's in good working condition with good gear like handle positioning features that allow handle to be positioned at about every 15 degrees, solid hardwood handles (with brass ferrules and end caps), and the maker's stamp can still be seen. It reads NOBLES MFG. CO. 8 . The cutting edge is fairly sharp, but could use a bit of honing if you plan to put this tool back in service. A nice primitive tool!
Offering this nice clean angular brace attachment, designed to be use with a brace to reach into tight working areas like between building studs. This attachment is clearly marked Millers Falls Tool Co. since 1868 No. 108 Made In USA on the ajustable angle brace. The tool can be adjusted to 4 position from staright to about 30 degrees. The drive system, chuck and adjustment are all in great shape, work smoothly and are ready to use. There is about 75% of the original paint intact overall. A nice clean hard to find drilling tool!
Offering this nice clean Sargent iron and wood bottom smooth plane in very good condition. It has a very clear marked on the toe, also marked SARGENT NEW HAVEN CT USA on the cutter. The cutter is plenty long with over 80% stock left on it. The Japanning is about 90% intact. The bottom has a few scratches, but is nicer than any I've seen in this size, no cracks very nice. The cap cover, depth adjustment and lateral are in very good working condition. The front knob is very clean, no cracks. A hard to find plane, in very good condition overall!
This is a nice clean Stanley No. 81 cabinet scraper with over 90% of it's original nickel plating intact! It has a nice rosewood base with a few minor dings and scratches that don't effect it's use. The blade has good length, fits well, but there is no Stanley marking on it. A nice clean scraper overall, in good working condition!
This is a very nice quality No. 5 1/2 iron Jack plane. Much like the Stanley 5 1/2 (older style) that has a 2 3/8 cutter. This one is marked T. H. CO. on the cutter with no other marker's marks noted. Feature over 95% original Japanning intact, sharp cutter near full length, rosewood handle and knob, clean bare iron surfaces, no cracks, very light wear. It does have the lateral control and depth adjustment features. This plane appears to be a Stanley type 8-9 with a replacement blade. A nice one!
This is a nice old socket framing chisel with plenty of good life left in it. It's marked JOHN ....LENWOOD . It is a heavy duty chisel measuring 11.25 long on the steel alone. It has a nice solid handle with a leather cap end that fits tightly in the socket. It needs a bit of sharpening, but is faily sharp now. A good heavy chisel!
This is an unusually shaped draw knife, with it's rounded handle shafts and thinner blade thickness. It is 15 wide overall x 8 wide cutting edge. It was designed particularly for a Coach maker. After doing a little research, I found a matching picture in an 1884 New Haven catalog. The tool matches the picture in that catalog, same handles, concave cutting edge, and rounded handle shafts. Although this draw isn't marked, I feel confident that New Haven was the maker. The condition is good with a fine textured like, or matted surface that seems to match everywhere on the steel indicating some minor pitting over the hundred+ years since it was made. The cutting edge is in very nice condition with no sign of sharpening for many years, in other words the finish is the same every on the steel. The handle are solid no cracks, good end plates, the one on the right turn about 1/10th of a turn on the steel shaft holding it in place. A very hard to find 19th century tool!
Offering this nice pair of two different types of spoke shaves. One has a flat or straight cutting surface, the other has a convex radius for cutting concave surfaces. Both are used in good useable condtion with good sharp cutters and nice appearence as well. The blade is a bit short on the convex style one, the other looks plenty long. A handy patern maker's tool! Size is 3.25 Wide overall x 0.8 wide cutters.
This is a rather rare draw knife with a patented spring loaded lock that holds the handles in place. To release the handle, simply slide the handle screw heads toward the end of the handle, that lever action releases the spring tension that holds the handle in place. This draw knife is quite rare, is in good working condition, with good solid hardwood handles that are notched out to actually cover most of the blade when closed, with good steel caps on both ends of each (nice design). No cracks in the wood handles. There is some minor pitting on the steel, but mostly in the hand arms areas, not near the cutting edge. The blade is sharp, but a bit of honing would be in order if one was going to use it. The makers mark is in the middle near the ends of the handles when folded, reads, J.S. CANTE.O . A very hard to find convex formed draw knife.
Offering this hard to find matched pair of right and left hand side rabbet planes. Stanley made these between 1896 and 1942, this pair has the Patent date of JAN.24.95 on each plane. The two you will see in the pictures have rosewood knobs and nickel plating. The nickel plating on the No. 99 is about 80% intact, where the No. 98 has about 60% intact. No rust or damage on either. Both have solid knobs with no cracks, some wear and small dings. The cutters are at full length, maybe one or two light sharpening only. There is a Patent date marked on each JAN 29 95 , the same on both. The patent date is a bit hard to read due to a light imprint. Overall a very nice early Stanley Tool collectible!
