55. TOOL CHEST WITH CONTENTS. J. Hilton. This ingenious chest, which is featured at page 68 of Treasure Chests by Lon Schleining (Taunton Press 2001) was built sometime in the mid 1800s by Hilton, a Connecticut cabinetmaker. From the outside it resembles a typical black painted pine chest, 38-1/2" by 23" by 29" (with wheels). Its unique feature is that when the lid is open, the entire front section pivots outward to provide access to the internal compartments. It contains almost 400 tools, and since most of them are marked by Hilton we are selling it as a complete set rather than breaking it up. Among the tools are 11 side beads by Ames of London, a set of even numbered hollows and rounds by Union Factory (numbers 4 through 24), a beautiful matched set of eight Butcher gouges fitted in the top compartment, more gouges and chisels by Butcher, Ward, and Charles Buck, a wide array of measuring and marking tools, including several French-fitted into recesses in a drawer, a set of rosewood and ebony handle try and mitre squares and five ultimatum style marking and mortise gages, two Spear and Jackson saws and two smaller saws.

Good+ 120-200
63. DISTILLER'S RULE. F. Palliser. All boxwood, with two sliding and three fixed scales.  We can't tell you what all the scales do, but there are several references to "Proof" and it was made by Palliser of Wolverhampton, the leading manufacturer of Sikes Hydrometers, which were used to measure the proof of alcholic beverages.  Near mint condition. Fine 200-400

78. WONDER CLOTH MEASURE. A.E. Putnam & Sons.

Fine 60-120
79. ARTIFICIAL HORIZON. Stackpole Bros. and Megearey. Includes the cover and base but missing the bottle that would have held mercury poured into the base to form the reflecting surface.  In its original mahogany box with a paper level that has the names of both Stackpole and Bro'r and Alexander Megearey.  Screws that attach arms are different.

One of MF's premier braces, fully chromed, with the patented Lion heavy duty chuck.  In near mint condition, slight wear to the grip but decal fully intact, in a box that originally held two braces with intact label, split seam.  12" sweep.  Nobody made braces like Millers Falls, and in the Lion line they were at the top of their game.  You'll look a long time for a cleaner example of one of the world's best braces. Fine 80-160
93. LOT OF TWO RATCHET BRACES. Peck, Stow & Wilcox No. 102. Two different versions of the PEXTO brace with Obed Peck's 1879 patented chuck and Caspar Reising's 1884 patented ratchet.

Plane has staining and a few chips, wear on front part of sole has resulted in a distinct groove near cutter so this was a well-used but well-cared-for plane.

Erlandsen New York 364", with an ivory drum with one crack.  The 33" steel bow with turned rosewood handle is unmarked but appears to be a match.  A stunning example. Good+ 300-600

158. CORNER BRACE. Bennett & Bloedel Patent. Manufactured by LMK Machine Company. An uncommon brace, japanned version, with its usually missing detachable handle, wood handles have some minor dings. The ratchet mechanism needs some work if you want to actually drill with it. Good 100-200

Good 150-250
162. LOT OF THREE HAND DRILLS.

194. THREE-ARMED FILLETSTER PLANE. D. Kimberly & Sons. Britain's only three-arm plough plane was patented and sold by D. Kimberly & Sons.

Rosewood cutter wedge and boxwood nicker wedge. Includes the wingnut that is usually missing. A very clean example of a rare plane. Fine 300-600
195. COMBINATION FILLETSTER. Mathieson & Sons. Combines the functions of sliding and sash filletster, with wedge-locked fence, double nickers and depth stops, full boxed sole.  There's an illustration of an unhandled example in Whelan, Fig. 13:63, this is the much rarer handled version.  Super clean, wedges all original, a couple of scrapes on the fence and smoothed-over chip from the end of the tote. Good+ 150-250
196. SCREW-ARM PLOW PLANE. Ohio Tool Co. No. 104. Solid boxwood throughout and in mint condition, one tiny chip to the threads is the only flaw.  Comes with a complete set of eight OTC plow cutters, immaculate in a modern leather roll. Fine 250-450

199. SCREW-ARM PLOW PLANE. The only mark is "Mumford" which looks like a maker but isn't listed anywhere; it could have been a retailer.  It looks like a Connecticut maker, possibly DeForest.  Boxwood, unhandled, with a lighter boxwood wedge.  A couple of minor chips from the threads and one nut, decorative scallop shaped locking nut for the depth stop.  The major issue is that the screw holding the rear shoulder to the fence is missing and there's a drilled hole in the top indicating that the screw may have broken off inside.  If you replace the screw and fix the hole you'll have an extremely attractive and uncommon plow. Good- 60-120
200. EUROPEAN PLOW PLANE. Typical European design with brass arms, brass nuts mounted inside of the fence and locking thumbscrew outside.  A heavy, dark brown wood that looks like a type of ebony.  One significant closed crack in the body, ending in the toe. Good 100-200

202. SCREW-ARM PLOW PLANE. H.L. Kendall.

308. PATTERNMAKER'S RABBET PLANE. 5-1/4" sole with 1-1/8" cutter, knurled screw holding lever cap, japanning 70% with spots of rust.  Good 50-100
309. MINIATURE PLANE. Block plane similar to Stanley No. 101 but a little larger, lever cap held by flat head screw, jappaning good.   Good 50-100
310. MILLER'S PATENT. Stanley No. 41. Proper Type 1 with all correct parts including filletster bed and wraparound fence. Includes seven plow cutters and tongue cutter in original wooden box (plus a slitter from a later model). There are a few chips from the tote, otherwise in super clean condition. Fine 3000-6000
311. FLEXIBLE SOLE PLANE.  Bailey Victor No. 20. Both Victor medallions, very crisp.  Second Bailey cutter adjustment with the holes along the cutter, loop type lever lock.  Original cutter with very clear patent date. Fine 350-700
312. BENCH PLANE.  Upson Nut Co. No. 3. Very uncommon example of Karmann's 1889 lateral adjustment, designed to move the cutter by friction only.  It was a terrible design and most Upson planes are found with Frisbie's adjustment.  Original marked cutter.  It has kind of a weird tote, shortened to accomodate the lateral lever and looks like the tip is a separate piece, but not a repair.  There's a crack in the sole behind the mouth. Good 150-250
313. SCRUB PLANE.  Stanley No. 40. The japanned version with rosewood tote and knob, notched rectangle cutter.  Japanning is about 95%, very nice condition for one of these hardworking planes. Good+ 80-150
314. BENCH PLANE. Definitely manufactured but we don't recognize it.  It's similar to an infill, but the infill is cast iron which gives it serious heft, and the rosewood tote and knob look American.  7-3/4" coffin shaped sole, 1-3/4" Moulson Bros. cutter; cap iron also marked Moulson Bros.  Lever cap screw has markings but too faint to read. Good+ 150-250

Good+ 100-200
319. LANCASHIRE PATTERN SHOULDER PLANE. Unsigned and probably user made, cast iron, 7-3/4" sole, 3/4" cutter. Good+ 100-200
320. BULLNOSE PLANE.  E. Preston No. 1355. Nickel-plated version of Preston's patented bullnose plane in the hard to fine 1-1/8" size.  Nickel has a couple of very minor flaws but no peeling, original Preston cutter Good+ 100-200

322. SET OF MATCH PLANES. Sargent Nos. 1066, 1067, and 1068. These planes, designed to cut tongue and groove joints, were Sargent's equivalent to the Stanley 146-148 series, but in this case Sargent didn't just copy the Stanley design but came up with its own, patented by Albert Page in 1912, using a double sided design with a handle on each end that would be turned upside down to cut the groove. Sized for 3/8", 5/8" and 7/8" boards respectively. All are uncommon, with the 1067 (5/8") the rarest. All clean and complete with original cutters, bedded in styrofoam in a sliding lid user made box, 31" x 12-1/2", for storage or display. Fine 800-1100
323. LOW ANGLE SMOOTH PLANE. Stanley No. 164. Proper sweetheart blade with graduations. Wood near fine with a vertical hole drilled in the end of the tote and a couple of minor chips, traces of decal.  Japanning nearly complete. User name scratched on left cheek. Good+ 800-1200

325. DOUBLE-BIT AXE. Keen Kutter. Has attractive lightly milled diamond cross-hatching on head, also stamped "32" with plain Keen Kutter stamp, some spots of surface rust but mostly clean. 4-1/2" edges, 31" handle also marked Keen Kutter, light wear.  Good+ 75-150
326. BEARDED HAND AXE. 14" edge with laid-in edge, decorative touchmarks and stamp that looks like "AB." Old 13-1/2" worn handle with cracks.  Good 75-150

330. BROAD AXE. L & I.J. White. New England style broad axe with straight handle, ground one side. Head has surface rust but White's 1837 Buffalo mark is legible, 11-1/4" blade with some minor chips, 26" handle a little loose, needs a wedge. Good 80-140
331. BROAD AXE. Unmarked, 10" single sided edge with nice 17" handle, a few tiny nicks in edge otherwise very clean. Good+ 50-100
332. HEWING HATCHET. T. Benjamin. Stamped T. Benjamin, Cast Steel, Warranted, which presumably is for Timothy Benjamin, a maker of edge tools in New York City in 1836-1837. 7-3/4" straight edge, single side, worn handle slightly splitting where it meets head, chip from back bottom corner of head, surface rust.  Good 100-200

337. SET OF BEVEL EDGE CHISELS.  James Swan. Matched set of 12 chisels, from 2" to 1/8".  Hickory socket handles with leather striking end.  Most are marked by Swan, some are unmarked but appear to be part of the same set.  They've been cleaned and sharpened and have some surface pitting that may have obscured the name on the unmarked ones.  Nicely displayed in a contemporary 18" x 36" glass front case. Fine 600-1100
338. ADJUSTABLE FENCE PLOW PLANE. Morris Patent. The scissors-type fence adjustment patented by Ellis Morris of Canton, Ohio, in 1871. Unmarked but unmistakable. Rosewood tote and wedge are very good, japanning 80%. Clean and works smoothly, one of the nicest examples I've seen lately. Partial Ohio Tool Co. mark on cutter.  Good+ 2500-5000
340. BULLNOSE RABBET PLANE.  Sargent Ladybug. The No. 1508-1/2 version of the Bug, 6" sole, has both fence and depth stop but depth stop may be a replacement.  Nickel nearly intact with some mild wear but no flaking. Good+ 400-700

343. PATTERNMAKER'S ADJUSTABLE SOLE PLANE. Harris Patent. Cast iron side plates dovetail into body and act as clamp for wooden sole.  We've seen one or two of these with solid interchangeable wooden soles, but this one has 12 sliding wooden pieces that can be used to form different sole patterns.  It has "Harris S. F. Cal" cast into toe and "Pat. Apl'd For" in tail; the actual patent is unknown.  Cutter adjustment is based on Chaplin's patent.  Beech tote and knob, 13" sole.  A very rare and intriguing plane. Fine 1000-1500
344. MILLER'S 1872 PATENT.  Stanley No. 50. Rarest of the combination planes based on Miller's patent, this is the cast iron version with traces of copper wash.  Unfortunately the fence is broken around the hole for the rear arm and has been wired to the arm in an old repair.  No way to fix it, you would need to get or cast a replacement fence.  Also missing the depth stop, includes one cutter. Good- 400-800
345. NUMBER TWO SIZED PLANE.  O.R. Chaplin Patent No. 2. 7-1/4" sole, plated cast iron knob and tote, with "O.R. Chaplin's Patent" cast around knob and "2" cast behind tote.  Original marked 1-1/2" cutter with some surface pitting. Fine 1000-2000

Pomeroy. 8-1/2" long, riveted skate, flat chamfers and fluted toe, arms and depth stop both lock with carved thumbscrews.  There's some staining on the right cheek around the thumbscrew that locks the depth stop, and the screw itself has swollen and won't go in all the way.  A1 mark.

380. LEATHERWORKER'S PLOUGH GAUGE. Blanchard. Like the draw gauges more frequently seen in the US, these were designed to cut leather straps, but by pushing the blade rather than pulling it, which works better with heavy leather.

Good+ 1000-2000
392. PANEL RAISING PLANE. A.B. Seidenstricker & Co. 14" body, 3-1/8" skewed cutter. Light wear and a few dings in throat and on tote, age checks. Tote may be reglued to body.  Good 60-120

397. LOT OF THREE SIDE RABBETS. A pair of left and right handed with iron fences, both marked with name R. Meadowcroft on toe but looks like user. Some cracks where body meets wedge, left one has pitting on fence. Plus another right handed one with brass fence and ebony wedge, unmarked but nicely made with light wear. Good 60-120
398. LOT OF EIGHT MOLDING PLANES. Gonzales Hnos, Buenos Aires. Made of Brazilian rosewood and look part of a set but only three have the semi-circular Gonzales Hnos (Bros) mark.

505. INFILL DOVETAILED REBATE PLANE. Unmarked but probably a Norris No. 8 with the distinctive "Steel" stamp at the base of the toe. Steel body with 8" sole dovetailed sole, ebony infill and wedge, user name very lightly stamped in top, Mathieson cutter down to it's last 1/4". Super clean, but for the cutter looks almost unused. Fine 175-350
506. INFILL SMOOTHING PLANE. Stewart Spiers. Circa 1900, cast steel body with 7-3/4" coffin-shaped sole, lever cap has domed cap screw and small upside down "Spiers" mark, rosewood infill with an open tote that has an unusual shape - the waist where it is joined to the body of the plane is narrower and looks like it would have been subject to breakage.  There's also a thin wooden shim under the cutter, which is a Colquhoun & Cadman 2-1/8" tapered.  If it weren't for that shim we'd call it fine. Good+ 150-300
507. LOW ANGLE BLOCK PLANE. Unsigned but probably British, 6-1/4" cast iron body, rosewood wedge with integral knob, 1-3/4" J. Herring cutter. Well made and very clean. Fine 80-150

514. SHOULDER PLANE. Bryant & Witcombe Patent. These planes, with an angular casting, skewed cutter and offset tote, are usually referred to as "Lancashire pattern", which is odd since the inventors, George Edwin Bryant, patternmaker, and Edward James Witcombe, plane maker, were both from Bristol which is not in Lancashire.  This one is marked with the British patent number, #4,172, issued in 1902, and is in immaculate condition, noting a minor casting flaw in the cast iron body. Fine 150-300
515. PATENTED ADJUSTABLE  PLANE.   Walker Patent. Good clean example of the uncommon third model of Walker's famously gizmoish plane with body comprised of eight plates that could be rearranged to change the profile.  Variation that uses wingnuts on the arm locks, one of the original cutters, one scratch on the tote but no damage.

516. IRON JOINTER.  Metallic Plane Co. The plane shown in Figure 207 of PTAMPIA I, corrugated sole and adjustable throat, original marked "Clover Leaf" brand cutter.  Well reglued tote, japanning 80% and not repainted. Good+ 100-200
517. CORRUGATED SOLE BENCH PLANE. Metallic Plane Co. Transition design between the original Palmer's Iron Planes that used the complex three-way adjustment mechanism of Palmer's 1867 patent, and the later planes that used the more familiar Palmer & Storke patent. It has the Palmer adjustment mechanism, but it doesn't protrude through slots in the cheeks. Instead of the Palmer patent date cast into the bed, it's stamped on the side with both Palmer's patent and Storke's original patent for the corrugated sole. 9-1/2" sole with adjustable throat; unmarked cutter. Good+ 150-250
518. MILLER'S PATENT.  Stanley No. 42. Type 4, proper cast iron filletster bottom with cutter and wraparound gunmetal fence, missing the optional cast iron outer fence.  Tote has been relaquered and has a tight crack. Good+ 1200-2000
519. PATENTED FORE PLANE.  Steers No. 306. The distinguishing feature of these planes, patented in 1885 by William Steers of Brattleboro, VT, is the "composite" sole with strips of rosewood to reduce friction.  Unlike most, the strips on this one are intact with moderate wear at the toe.  Wood fine, japanning mostly gone. Good+ 250-500
520. IRON BENCH PLANE. Loughborough Patent. Among the rarest and most sought after of the early patented planes,  based on William Loughborough's first 1854 patent and manufactured for two years by G & J Telford of Rochester. Identical to the example shown in Figure 20 of PTAMPIA I, including the markings cast into the toe,  but with an intact rosewood tote. One of the holy grails of patented plane collectors. Good+ 3000-6000
521. CORNICE PLANE.  E. Clark. Astragal and lying ogee pattern, 4" wide, body is 13-1/2" long with offset tote and apprentice hole.  The end of the tote has some chips, otherwise very clean.  A mark, user names. Good+ 100-200

Good 300-500
523. EIGHTEENTH CENTURY MOLDING PLANE. I. Iones. Gunstocker's plane, 7-1/4" by 5/8" by 3".  Narrow flat chamfers, relieved wedge.  A1 mark. Fine 400-800

534. MODERN MAKER.  Marcou S20A Smoothing  Plane. A bevel-up adjustable mouth smoother by New Zealand maker Philip Marcou.  Marcou is known for the heavy duty design of his planes as well as his obsessive attention to detail, and this plane is a tank that can plow through the densest and knottiest wood.  In addition, it's a handmade thing of beauty with brass sides, dovetailed steel sole, and what looks like afzelia tote and knob.  11-1/4" sole, 2-1/8". It would run you more than $4,000 new and this is near mint with a few tiny scratches on the sole. Fine 3000-5000

550. SINGLE BITTED FELLING AXE.  MWH Co. Hand Made. 4-1/2" blade, 15" good solid original handle.  The "M.W.H. Co." cast into the head was a mark used prior to 1915 by Marshall Wells Hardware of Duluth, and the "Hand Made" mark with a backwards "n" was presumably intended to convey the product of honest American craftsmen. Good 50-100

554. LOT OF TWO AXES. A mortising axe,  unmarked, 14" head, 24" handle looks original and is tight but with some damage near the head. And a ice cutting axe, at least that's my guess since it's not marked, but it looks like a tool you'd use to cut blocks for the icehouse, and the spike on the rear could be used to drag them.  11" head, 22" solid original handle with beautiful patina.   Good & better 80-160
555. BRASS-BOUND LEVEL.  Stratton Bros. No. 11. Stratton's No. 11 line of mahogany levels is less common than the rosewood No. 10s, but had the same brass binding.  The shorter versions are particularly uncommon.  This one is 10", with double porthole plumb vials, in very nice condition.

567. BRIDLE PLOW.  William Tomlinson. Iron bridle, ebony knob on side in lieu of tote.  Overstamped user name on toe.  Some overall dinging but nothing serious.  Tomlinson was a Glasgow maker, his mark is uncommon. Good 80-150
568. SPLIT IVORY NUT PLOW PLANE. Greenfield Tool Co. No. 558. Rosewood body, boxwood arms and locking nuts, sandwich boxwood and ivory outer nuts, ivory tips.  Threads are flattened for about 1" on the  fence end of the rear arm, other than that just a couple of small chips.  There's a split in one ivory nut and a brass reinforcing plate on the tote that we haven't seen before but appears to have been a precaution rather than a repair.  Toe has been dented which obscures the model number but the Greenfield mark is clear.  Minor damage to wedge finial. Good+ 1500-2500
569. SCREW ARM PLOW PLANE.  D.R. Barton. Beech, handled, good clean condition throughout with only minor chips to threads, boxwood wedge, original Barton cutter, G mark. Good+ 100-200

581. LUMBERMAN'S TOOL. Cant Hook. Cant hook with crow's foot, also sometimes called a "mill dog", these have shorter handles than the cant hooks and peaveys used by river runners and were used in the mill. This one also has an unusual second hinged point on the other side that makes us think it may have been a patented tool, but the only marking is "A133." 18" long, good original handle. Good+ 50-100
582. LOT OF TWO BRASS  ROUTERS. Both unmarked and user made with cast brass bodies.  One is 3-1/2" wide with graceful D-shaped body, the other 7-1/2" with a heavier body with waffle pattern.  Both well made. Good+ 80-150

Good 500-1000
587. SURVEYOR'S VERNIER COMPASS.  Alexander Megarey. 5-3/4" silvered dial, steel needle with lifting collar, engraved with fleur-de-lis at north, and "A. Megarey, New York, Warranted."  Crossed levels at south, plain socket, in fitted box with sighting vanes and label for Samuel Thaxter in the lid.  Megarey was born in Ireland and apprenticed to William Morris in London before emigrating to New York in the early 1820s; instruments marked by him are not common.

Simple straight socket. In original mahogany box, no label. Some moisture under the glass. Good+ 500-1000
589. SURVEYING COMPASS.  Heisley. Marked simply "Heisley Harrisburg" but simpler engraving probably marks it as the work of one of Frederick Heisley's sons rather than the old man.  6" dial with star and fleur-de-lis at north, lifting collar with unusual sliding mechanism rather than screw, circle counter is also different, cover, sighting vanes with different types of locking screws, crossed levels with small vials, plain socket, dial cover.  In box that's worn but intact.

590. SURVEYOR'S VERNIER COMPASS.  Knox & Shain. 5-3/4" brass dial with cover, blued steel needle with lifting collar, star and fleur-de-lis at north, circle counter, circular level vial which was uncommon (and which has dried up), straight socket.  In a fitted box with label in lid, sighting vanes and some surveying markers.  Knox & Shain made surveying instruments in Philadelphia from 1855 into the twentieth century; the Walnut Street address on the label marks it as pre-1876. Good+ 300-600
591. SURVEYING COMPASS.  Benjamin Rittenhouse. 6-1/2" brass dial, beautifully engraved, steel needle with lifting collar, engraved "Ben Rittenhouse" on south arm, sighting vanes, no levels, no cover, in original wooden box, simple straight mount.  A beautiful example of the work of one of earliest American makers, dated to pre-1800. Fine 2000-4000
592. COMPOSITE IVORY RULE. Acme Rule Co. As recounted by Phil Stanley in his "Sourcebook for Rule Collectors", pp. 204-05, in the last half of the nineteenth century ivory tripled in price, and rulemakers who wanted to continue to offer ivory rules looked for ways to conserve.  One of them, patented by Michael Hogary in 1891, was a composite method that used a boxwood base with a thin veneer of ivory.  They were manufactured by the Acme Rule Co., and all known examples are marked "patent applied for."  This is a two-fold, six inch caliper rule, fully bound in German silver.  Very rare. Good+ 300-600
