120. INFILL JOINTER PLANE. C. Bayfield.  Bayfield worked in Nottingham in the 1800s or early 1900s and his mark is very uncommon. Most of his planes are shorter bench or mitre planes, this is the first jointer we've seen.  20" sole, cast iron body, fill looks like walnut which he was known to use.  The bun has a button on top and the cap screw has double knurling, both typical of Bayfield.  2-1/2" I.

125. INFILL SKEW SHOULDER PLANE. Unsigned and probably craftsman made.  8-1/2" cast gunmetal shell, fill looks like red mahogany.  1-1/4" skew iron marked "Platte."  Shoulder planes with skew irons are very uncommon and this one is well made and in fine condition.  From the collection of John Sindelar. Fine 200 - 400
126. INFILL BULLNOSE PLANE. Unsigned but the 1-1/8" Marples iron is numbered to the body so manufactured, and we would guess Norris.  Gunmetal body with 3-5/8" sweated steel sole, very dark rosewood wedge.  There's about 3/4" left on the iron.  Looks like it has been cleaned at some point but not obnoxiously polished.  User's name stamped on the wedge but it's covered by the cheek when the wedge is in place. Fine 250 - 500
127. BULLNOSE INFILL PLANE. Unsigned and probably craftsman made.  3-3/4" cast steel shell, rosewood fill and wedge.  1" unmarked iron with about 1/2" left.  Strike button on heel.  There's a chip out of the wedge, otherwise very clean.  From the collection of John Sindelar. Good+ 100 - 200

Good+ 150 - 250

132. EIGHTEENTH CENTURY ROUND.  I. Nicholson. 7/8" diameter, 9-7/8" long by 2-1/4" high, slightly rounded chamfers, relieved wedge.  Looks like A2 mark but the "I" is pretty faint and we can't swear it's not an F.  User initials marked in cheek, tight check by throat. Good+ 200 - 400
133. REED & GUIDE PLANE.  D. Leavitt. Cuts a 1/4" reed with a second groove guide in making cutting parallel cuts.  Whelan Fig. 10.64.  Fully boxed, 9/1-2" long, heavy flat chamfers.  There is a "J. Leavitt" in AWP that looks similar, but no D. Leavitt. Good+ 60 - 120

137. EIGHTEENTH CENTURY STANDING FILLETSTER.  Jones. Cuts a 1/2" profile with an integral fence, 9-1/2" long with light flat chamfers.  An inconsiderate former owner has mostly obliterated the maker's mark; we're pretty sure its Jones but it isn't clear which one. Fine 100 - 200

Arms are attached to the fence by original bolts with heads protruding above the shoulders. Narrow rounded chamfers, relieved wedge. Wedge is worn, and a few stains, but overall very clean.

142. SAW. Richardson's New Timber Saw.  Very rare example of the saw blade patented in 1885 by Christopher Richardson and sold by Richardson Bros. of Newark, featuring the teardrop-shaped cutout in the middle of the blade that was alleged to reduce both friction and weight.  28" blade, 4-1/2 ppi rip, blade is oxidized and etch unreadable, original Richardson Bros. medallion, a few chips from upper horn, one nut missing. Good 200 - 400

147. COMBINATION BACK SAW.  George H. Bishop.  Patented in 1898 by Frederick Wuest and manufactured by Bishop.  Blade is clamped by a bar that allows it to be slid up or down for variable cuts, or reversed entirely to use teeth of a different pitch.   They came in various lengths, this is the 12" in nice condition with near perfect applewood handle.  Most were made after Bishop relocated to Lawrenceburg, IN, the etch on this one is Cincinnati which, along with the "Patent applied for" indicates an early model.  There is also an etch on the reverse extolling the virtues. Fine 100 - 200
148. PANEL SAW.  Harvey W. Peace. 10" blade, good nib, 10 ppi crosscut, open handle with a few small chips from horns, original pre-Disston "arm & hammer" Peace medallion stamped with the date of Washbourne's nut patent, split nuts.  Blade has the etch of hardware dealer W.

Japanning on both planes is immaculate.  One of them has some rust on the cutter, the other is NOS.  One box is intact, the Christmas box sleeve is worn but complete.  The other has just the box lid and the Christmas sleeve, much cleaner.  Type 10 labels on both.

Good 100 - 200
158. CAST IRON SIDE BEAD. Unsigned and probably craftsman made, probably by a patternmaker who had a whole lot of 1/2" side beads to cut.  8" long with a heavy frog and pivoting lever cap, round offset mounted knob.  Cutter is marked only "Made in USA."  Cutouts in body presumably to reduce weight but still pretty hefty.  Polished surface.  Very well made.  From the collection of Cliff Sapienza.

159. BLOCK PLANE. Boston Metallic Plane Co.  The plane shown on page 153 of PTAMPIA I, based on Cyrus Hardy's 1873 patent,  but without the slide-in palm rest.  Instead, it has the rosewood wedge of the type used by Amos Kindred after he purchased Boston's remaining inventory, as described on page 155.  Cutter and wedge both faintly marked by Boston Metallic, large chip from the wedge.   Good 100 - 200

216. LAMP BASE. Cast metal in the form of a pitcher mounted on a cylindrical base with extensive decorative casting.  16" high and 5" in diameter.  Has the bottom half of the bulb socket but you'll need to complete the wiring (and provide a shade). Good 30 - 60

Hanks patent (although the patent is unknown).  This version was separately patented by Ward and Bedworth, of Mohawk, New York, in 1877, and is much less common.  This example is unmarked, but appears to be the version manufactured by Raney Bros. of Mohawk, which is the rarest of all.  Good green backed vial, very clean.  From the collection of Don Rosebrook. Fine 150 - 300
253. INCLINOMETER.  Happle Patent.

Good+ 100 - 200
257. BRASS-BOUND LEVEL.  Akron Eclipse No. 4. Beautiful example of the line of eclipse levels manufactured by Baker-McMillen Co. of Akron, with the vials enclosed in the protective glass tubes patented by Daniel James.  28" rosewood stock; fully brass bound and brass tipped.  Three vials, including level and plumb vials in portholes.  The plumb vial has brass collars on both sides, but the level just has the vial holders mortised into the reverse side, appears original.  From the collection of Don Rosebrook. Fine 100 - 200

Union Gravity Level Co.  Patented in 1923 by James Reed of Sioux City, IA, and manufactured by the Union Gravity company of Sioux City, it featured a solid aluminum body and brass dial and was sold in various lengths. This is the 41-1/2" version, which we believe was the longest, and in nice condition, noting some scratches to the brown paint on the upper and lower rails. From the collection of Don Rosebrook.  Good+ 350 - 700
261. LEVEL. User made, 30" stock that looks like tulipwood, level vial with casket adjustment, decorative etching, a porthole at each end that look like they were intended for additional vials but they were never inserted.  From the collection of Don Rosebrook. Good+ 50 - 100

Butcher cutter.  Overall wear consistent with age but no damage. From the collection of Cliff Sapienza. Good+ 300 - 600
377. JACK PLANE.  Sanford Patent. One of the earliest cutter adjustments, patented in 1844 by Levi Sanford of New York.  There's an example on page 17 of PTAMPIA I, marked as having been manufactured by A. & E. Baldwin.  This one has the B mark of Isaac Jones, who was another Albany planemaker.  Patent date and name clearly marked on the adjusting screw.  16" long with open tote.  The tote is chipped and the body is rough with wear and paint splotches, but a very rare example of an important early patent.  From the collection of Cliff Sapienza. Good 200 - 400
378. JOINTER.  Bailey Split Frame. Type with straight joint between upper and lower sections, coiled spring behind front knob and paddle-type adjusting screw.  2-3/8"  Moulson cutter, slide in lever cap, unmarked but with assembly number and width cast on underside.  Missing its tote and knob. Good 1000 - 2000
379. JACK PLANE. Rodier Patent.  With the alternative depth adjustment shown in Figure 225 of PTAMPIA I.  Affectionately known as the "squiggly plane."  Rodier's patent was for his adjustment mechanism, intended to simultaneously regulate the set of the cutter and the width of the mouth, but his planes are best known for their corrugated sides and the serpentine grooves cast into the sole.  Most of them have the faucet handle type adjustment shown in the patent, but a couple are known with this alternative mechanism which Roger suggests was an experimental short production run.  The brass knob doesn't turn smoothly and the bottom end of the adjusting bolt appears damaged.  16" long, 2-3/8" Buck Bros. cutter, unmarked lever cap. Tote rounded at top and with paint splotches, chips from throat.  A plane with issues, but a rare part of planemaking history.  From the collection of Cliff Sapienza.  Good 300 - 600
380. JACK PLANE. Steers No. 305.  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. Japanning possibly enhanced but very clean, tote has a rounded over end and a very well reglued split, original cutter and lever cap with the often missing insert, lightly pitted.  Good+ 150 - 300

405. IVORY TIP PLOW PLANE.  Ohio Tool Co. No. 105.

416. GRAVITY INCLINOMETER.  The Downey Level.   Patented 9/21/91 by Silas Downey and sold exclusively by Orr & Lockett Hardware of Chicago; examples we've seen have a range of different stocks and it may have been marketed as a separate level attachment.  This is in a 28" x 3-3/4" red-stained softwood stock.  Paper dial is immaculate, nickel plating worn off on the assembly surround, wood has some nicks and dings, mostly on the reverse side.  From the collection of Don Rosebrook.  Good+ 150 - 300

419. LEVEL.  Empire Level Mfg. 26" aluminum framed level with three sets of double-opposed vials.  Besides the name of Empire Level of Milwaukee, it has "Pat. Nov. '22" cast into the frame.  The reference is apparently to Zieman's patent of 11/14/22, which provided for vials to be adjusted around three axes.  Apparently Empire quickly realized that was a dumb idea since the third adjustment is missing from the production model.  An uncommon level in mint condition.  From the collection of Don Rosebrook.   Fine 60 - 120

A set of 11 planes, all unhandled and 12" -13" long, designed to cut either a rounded fluting profile or v-shaped car beading profile. The unusual feature is that the cutters are not solid, but are shaped like a scorp, so that the shavings pass over the cutter, into the body, and out a filletster-type hole on the cheek.
