Number 92 Cabinetmaker

ST150245 Number 92 Cabinetmaker's Rabbet Plane A nice clean English made Stanley from the 60s or 70s. The blade has aboutr 70%+ remaining. The nickel is about 97%, with the loss being primarily on the adjuster knob. The slot in the screw that holds the two halves together is a bit damaged from an ill fitting screwdriver. For this reason I held the condition down a grade to G+ Sold



Book:  Boxwood & Ivory - Stanley Traditional Rules 1855...

ST150250 Book: Boxwood & Ivory - Stanley Traditional Rules 1855... The seminal work on the rule of the Stanley Rule and Level Company, wirtten by Philip Stanley and published in 1984. Printed in the US. 188 pages and hardboard. This is a new copy and even the dust jacket is still pristine. New $99




Number 21 Combination Square

ST150258 Number 21 Combination Square A lovely sweetheart marked example that has been carefully cleaned by a collector. Most of the nickel remains with a pleasing light patina on the bear surfaces. G++ $65





Number 12 Square

ST150263 Number 12 Square A 6" type 1 try square that has been nicely cleaned by a collector and retains about 90%+ of the original japanning. It is marked with the patent date but not marked Stanley, as is typical. There is a small kink in the lower edge of the blade around an inch out from the stock. It is usable as is but could probably be hammered out pretty easily. This early model is quite scarce in my experience. G+ $38


Number 220 Block Plane

ST150266 Number 220 Block Plane This is a 1950s plane in the box. The box is really shot. The plane has some white paint spattered on the cap, but if you can pick this off, the plane will rate fine. The blade has never been honed, but has nicks on the edge, the classic sign of a homeowner owned plane. It was probably used once. It just needs that blade to be reground. G++ $45



Number 90 Bullnose

ST150270 Number 90 Bullnose An as found sweetheart marked #90 with about 90%+ original nickel and 95% or so original blade. There is a very small hairline crack on the upper guide rail that I did not see until just now. It won't hurt a thing, but it means that we are losing money on this one. Still a great user. G+ $50




Number 6 Bailey Fore Plane Number 6 Bailey Fore Plane

ST150275 Number 6 Bailey Fore Plane A nice clean Stanley 6 of about 1900 with a full original blade with the 1892 patent date logo. The japanning has been touched up a bit by a collector. There is one rust spot on the sole, right at the edge, which extends up the side. Nothing to worry about, but I priced the plane to be a real bargain because of these two minor issues. G+ Sold



Number 16 Mitre Square

ST150281 Number 16 Mitre Square A nice as found example with a medium patina on the bare metal surfaces and most of the original nickel remaining. G+ $45





Ten Inch Bit Brace

ST150284 Ten Inch Bit Brace The model number of this brace has been ground off and I don't know it off hand. What is unusual is that it is not a ratcheting brace. Most Stanley braces are ratcheting, although this feature has never been useful for me. It is probably 1930s with nice rosewood and good nickel plating except where the information was ground off of the body. A good user. G+ Sold



Catalog Reprint:  Stanley Tools Catalogue Number 120

ST131214 Catalog Reprint: Stanley Tools Catalogue Number 120 A pristine copy of the hardbound catalog reprint of the Stanley Sweetheart catalog from 1923. Produced by my friend Roger Smith, this is the single best Stanley catalog reprint ever done. Pristine condition. Fine+ $20




Number 4 Bailey Smoothing Plane Number 4 Bailey Smoothing Plane

ST150287 Number 4 Bailey Smoothing Plane A good user Stanley smoothing plane from about 1900. The condition is just not quite up to TBT standards. The wood is good although there is some lacquer fill on the rear tote near the top, that appears to be original and filling a defect in the rosewood. Don't expect a pristine plane, but this one will be a great user and you can't go wrong at this price. Good Sold



Number 10 Stanley Jack Rabbet Plane Number 10 Stanley Jack Rabbet Plane Number 10 Stanley Jack Rabbet Plane

ST15024 Number 10 Stanley Jack Rabbet Plane A superior example with nice untouched patina and a wonderful grained rosewood tote. This tote is 1 in 100 nice for a Stanley tote. The iron has better than 80% remaining and bears the 1892 patent date logo. There are a few scattered spots of surface rust on the sides, no bigger than eraser heads. The lever cap screw head is slightly buggered from using an ill fitting screwdriver on it. The cap iron is the early style and has the patent date marked towards the bottom. This is an example that I would be very happy with in my collection and to use. G+ Sold


Number 71 1/2 Router

ST15028 Number 71 1/2 Router The sought after closed throat Stanley router with the Gothic Stanley logo cast into the top. This one only has one blade with it, the 1/4" wide straight blade. A user has fitted a sole out of what I think is satinwood. The plane of couse was meant to have a wooden sole fitted and came with countersunk holes for this purpose. A lovely example for a user or collector. G+ Sold



Number 271 Router

ST150218 Number 271 Router An apparently unused example from the 1950s in pristine condition with a nice, clean, box. Fine+ Sold






Warrington Hammer

ST150223 Warrington Hammer A 14oz Warrington (cross-pein) hammer with its original handle. The handle is slightly loose, probably from the gas heating in my house, which is bone dry right now. Note that this is an English made Stanley hammer, but not of recent manufacture, probably pre-1970 at least. G+ Sold




Number 4 Bailey Smoothing Plane

ST150225 Number 4 Bailey Smoothing Plane A particularly nice, as found and little used, 1930s Stanley #4. This plane has clearly seen very little use and most of its original blade remaining. The rosewood tote has alot of sap wood in it, making it particularly attractive. About 99% of the japanning remains and the bare metal surfaces have a pleasing light patina. The only negatives that I see are a tiny bit of paint on the handle that can be carefully scraped off, and a tiny nick in the blade, that is quickly ground out. A superior example for the connoisseur. G++ Sold


Number 65 Chamfer Shave

ST150227 Number 65 Chamfer Shave A nice as found example of the earliest style Stanley chamfer shave. The blade has the Stanley Rule & Level with the patent date in a circle, which is the first style marking for this tool and is nice to find. This tool is from Tom Lamond's personal collection. Tom was the leading authority on American spokeshaves and wrote the definitive reference on the subject. Nice smooth patina on the bare metal surfaces, like a sophisticated collector likes to see. G++ $145


Number 617 Hand Drill

ST150231 Number 617 Hand Drill Equivelant in size to a Millers Falls #5, but feels a little better made to me. It is from the 1950s and has painted wood rather than rosewood, but the gear mechanism is very well made and heavier duty than the Miller's Falls. This one is as found and a little dull, but very little used. A most handy tool. G++ $59



Number 5C Bailey Jack Plane

ST150233 Number 5C Bailey Jack Plane A clean and little used Stanley jack plane from the 1930s. The blade appears to have the original factory grind. I suggest watching our video on grinding jack plane irons. The finish on handle has started to detriorate a bit, which detracts from the rosewood, but this is still a great pre-War Stanley that should compare favorably to a new copy at 3 times the price. G++ Sold



Number 3 Bailey Smoothing Plane

ST150238 Number 3 Bailey Smoothing Plane A crisp and little used 1950s Stanley smooting plane. The bare metal surfaces have a pleasing medium patina. This one has stained hardwood handles instead of real rosewood. As a user it is just as good, but the ones without rosewood don't bring as much money, which makes this oen a real bargain for a user. G++ Sold



Number 7C Bailey Jointer

ST150120 Number 7C Bailey Jointer This is a crisp and little used Stanley corrugated jointer of about 1910. It has the blade logo that was used for a short period before the V trademark. This plane is very much as found and has a dark patina on the bare metal surfaces. About 95% of the original japanning remains. A lot of people don't like a dark patina, but if you do, this is a great plane and modestly priced for its quality. G+ Sold


Number 2 Bailey Smoothing Plane Number 2 Bailey Smoothing Plane

ST150127 Number 2 Bailey Smoothing Plane A nice turn of the Century number 2 that still has the bead at the base of the knob. The blade has the V trademark, which I believe is a later replacement blade. The sides and sole have been lightly cleaned with steel wook by a collector. The rest is untouched, with nice crisp wood. Not a superb example, but a nice honest one. G+ Sold



Number 3 Bailey Smoothing Plane Number 3 Bailey Smoothing Plane

ST150131 Number 3 Bailey Smoothing Plane A sweetheart era in as found condition. The sides and sole have a dark patina with some light pitting. The wood is quite nice. The top of the blade is lightly mushroomed from being tapped by an idiot who had not quite figured out the word's easiest to operate plane adjustment mechanism. The underside of the lever cap has the patent for the kidney shape cast into it. I don't see that too often. A great pre-War user Stanley at a modest price. G+ Sold



Number 12 Scraper Number 12 Scraper

ST150132 Number 12 Scraper This is an as found #12 that has a nice medium patina on the bare metal surfaces. You could clean it lightly but I really would not do much. Somebody has filed the Roman numberal 9 into one side. It will make a great user and we are selling it with a new Hock blade from our stock. G+ $99




Number 5C Bailey Jack Plane

ST150136 Number 5C Bailey Jack Plane A V trademark Stanley corrugated jack plane from the 1910s. Retains a full original iron, 98% original japanning, and has a lovely medium patina. A very superior example of a pre-War Stanley jack plane. G++ Sold




Number 709 Vise

ST150139 Number 709 Vise A cast iron clamp on vice with a rotating base. It will clamp onto a bench top up to about 2 1/4" thick. The jaws are 2 1/2" wide. I don't see a model marking on this vise but it seems to be a 709. As found and a bit dirty, and certainly used, it will clean up nicely with its nicely contrasting orange and black paint. I know that it is not worth a fortune, but it seems absurd to me that you can buy this US made quality for so little when a new piece of trash will cost much more. I predict that in 50 years items like this will be highly sought after and collector's will reflect on how cheap they were in our time. G+ Sold


Number 4C Bailey Smoothing Plane

ST150143 Number 4C Bailey Smoothing Plane A very clean and little used Stanley corrugated smoothing plane from the late 50s. It still has rosewood. The finish on the front knob has some minor tool box chips. Overall a superior example and a great deal for a user. G++ Sold




Number 4C Bailey Smoothing Plane

ST150149 Number 4C Bailey Smoothing Plane This is a V trademark Stanley corrugated smoother in as found condition that needs a good clean up. It has no problems, it is just very neglected. The sole is smeared with paint from planing a door or something like that. The wood is nice. The japanned surfaces are covered with sawdust but look like they will be good underneath. The bare metal surfaces are lightly oxidized overall and will need more agressive cleaning than tools that we normall sell. I would suggest using our soft scraper technique (see FAQS), followed by a few different Norton synthetic steel wool pads and wax and you should end up with a nice pre-war Stanley that easily rates better than Good Sold


Number 67 Universal Spokeshave

ST150152 Number 67 Universal Spokeshave A complete in the original box example with a sweetheart iron and the later style that has reversed threads on one handle so that it does not tend to get loose. Thre is about 98% of the original nickel remaining on this superb example. The box shows some wear but is still presentable. From the personal collection of noted spokeshave authrity Tom Lamond,, who wrote the seminal work on American spokeshaves. Fine- Sold


Number 8 Bailey Jointer Plane

ST150157 Number 8 Bailey Jointer Plane This is an as found Stanley 8 that is a bit dirty, but is not rusty and will clean up to make a great user plane. The japanning has a lot of tool box rash and the tote is missing quite a bit of its finish as well. It has a good nearly full sweetheart iron and while not in pristine collector's condition, is still a very respectable 1920s Stanley for an affordable price. G+ Sold



Number 29 Pre-Lateral Fore Plane

ST141268 Number 29 Pre-Lateral Fore Plane A 20" wood-bodied fore plane. I generally don't bother with the type studies of Stanley planes, but this one was early enough that I was intrigued. Anyway, according to the type study in PTAMPIA V1, this is a type 4 plane. This is from the early days of Stanley's plane making business. The plane is in untouched condition, with a near full iron and a sole that is not all worn out. There are scratched in the sole from misuse, but finding an untouched Stanely wood-bodied plane of this vintage is quite unusual. It is pretty dirty now but it should clean up to at least G+ $165


Number 79 Side Rabbet Plane

ST141274 Number 79 Side Rabbet Plane A sweetheart marked number 79 with about half the nickel gone. It looks like the nicke has been peeling rather than wearing off and the blades look to be about full original length. A great user grade example from the 1920s. G+ $75




Number 100 1/2 Block Plane

ST141279 Number 100 1/2 Block Plane This is the small Stanley pattern maker's block plane with a sole that is both compassed and radiused. This plane has some surface rust where the japanning is gone at the top of the squirrel tail. A good user that would improve with a light cleaning. G+ Sold




Number 75 Bullnose Plane

ST150113 Number 75 Bullnose Plane A V trademark example that shows little use and is in the original box. The box is shabby, has been recently taped, and is missing the label. Note that it is easy to remove recent clear tape by releasing the glue with a hair dryer. The plane is very nice and is 100 years old. G++ Sold




Number 90 Bullnose Plane

ST150116 Number 90 Bullnose Plane A bright and clean, barely used example of a Sheffield, England, made Stanley 90. It has the original Stanley England sticker on the front. I think that this is a 1970s plane but I am no expert on Stanley's Sheffield planes. A great user. Fine $89




Number 4 Pre-Lateral Bailey Smoothing Plane Number 4 Pre-Lateral Bailey Smoothing Plane

ST141244 Number 4 Pre-Lateral Bailey Smoothing Plane This is a lovely early Stanley smoothing plane, with the half moon logo and the patent date inside the adjuster knob. It has a lovely medium to dark untouched patina. The only flaw is a chip, and I do mean a chip, off of the top of the tote horn. The tote has that elegant early shape. A great example from the early years of the classic Bailey plane. G+ $179



Number 3 Trammel Points

ST141215 Number 3 Trammel Points A crisp pair of Stanley Trammels on the original beam. There is some very minor surface rust on one of the points, which is why I gave it the minus. They are probably unused with the original factory grind on the points. Fine- $149




Number 7 Bailey Pre-Lateral Jointer

ST141156 Number 7 Bailey Pre-Lateral Jointer This is a nice as found early Stanley jointer. It has a medium to dark patina overall but no rust and will clean beautifully. The iron, with half moon logo, looks to be nearly full length and of course this is the early chip breaker with the patent on it. The adjustting nut is the hollow style with the patent date inside. The japanning is about 60% but has scattered losses evenly spread overall. Pre-lateral jointers don't come up all that often and this one is fresh to the market, never owned by a collector. There can't be too many of these 19th Century Stanleys still floating around outside of collections. G+ $169


Number 113 Compass Plane

ST141161 Number 113 Compass Plane An early style side-wheel adjusting Stanley compass plane in very clean as found condtion. The sole and the rest of the bare metal mechanism are super clean. The japanning is bight and clean, but there is some bubbling on the right side. The logo on the blade was not struck very deeply, which is common on these, so it is faint. This is a very attractive example and better than it sounds. I am very conservative in rating it G+ Sold


Number 5 1/2 Bailey Jumbo Jack Plane

ST141134 Number 5 1/2 Bailey Jumbo Jack Plane A circa 1950 Stanley large jack plane that has been nicely waxed by a collector. The body is smooth and rust free, but it does have some staining on the sole. the rosewood has some scratched in the varnish, and a few very small chips in the upper edge of the tote spur. The blade is full and the lever cap is bright and clean. A great user and a very strong G+ $159



Traut

ST141142 Traut's 1871 Patent Bevel A 10" cast iron bevel with walnut panels. Not marked but made by Stanley and quite scarce. Its been cleaned up by a collector, but not a bad job. It is not a pristine tool and it looks very good now for the condition that it is in, which is about average. I have seen these sell for up to $400 but our consignor told me to get it sold. G+ $195



Number 65 Chamfer Shave

ST141071 Number 65 Chamfer Shave An early example in as found condition of the classic Stanley chamfering shave. A brilliant tool by any measure. This one has a dark patina but it is ready to use as soon as you sharpen it up. G+ $99





Number 55 Combination Plane Number 55 Combination Plane Number 55 Combination Plane

ST141073 Number 55 Combination Plane A Stanley 55 from about 1915 in the original chestnut box with the slidining lid. It has the original screwdriver, but the instructions are a reprint. One blade is missing, the #45 hollow blade, and the screw that holds on the little shoe that goes on the auxillary center. I have never needed to use this piece. I thought that I had an extra shoe around somewhere with the screw in it, but I couldn't find it. If it turns up I will put the screw on. Otherwise a nice example for a modest price. G+ $499


Number 605 Bedrock Jack Plane

ST141026 Number 605 Bedrock Jack Plane This is an as found Bedrock jack plane that would be fine to use now (after you prepare the blade), or if you are picky, after you clean it up a bit. It has marvelous wood with the earlier style wide base tote with nice figure in the rosewood. The blade has about 80% remaining. A very honest example and a great user at a modest price. G+ Sold



Number 45 Combination Plane Number 45 Combination Plane Number 45 Combination Plane

ST14103 Number 45 Combination Plane A pristine sweetheart marked Stanley 45 in the very scarce painted green wooden box. A similar box is more commonly seen with 55s. The plane is immaculate the fence looks like it has not rubbed on wood more than once or twice since the 1920s when it was made. It has the original hurwood screwdriver but the instructions are gone. I am including a copy of the Stanley Combination Plane book, which covers the use of the plane and its development. A connoisseur grade example. Fine Sold


Number 116 Mitre Box

ST14105 Number 116 Mitre Box A barely used, if at all, example, in the original box from the 1950s. There are nicks in the paint on the wood, but from the parts moving around in the box, not from use. Still has the original instructions in the box. The box is taped and is a bit tatty. Fine- $50




Number 95 Butt Gauge

ST140965 Number 95 Butt Gauge This is an apparently unused 1950s era Stanley butt gauge in the original box. The gauge would be fine but tthere is a bit of nickel loss and corrosion, all on one side where some moisture got to it. The box is a bit tatty and part of the bottom is missing. G++ $36




Number 60 Dowelling Jig

ST140968 Number 60 Dowelling Jig In the original box with all 9 of the guides. The box has lost its exterior paper, but is intact. It has the original instructions, but does not the bit stop that I think came with these. A great user for a modest price. G+ Sold




Number 45 Combination Plane

ST140922 Number 45 Combination Plane This is a remarkably complete 45 in the original box. These planes were original shipped with two pieces of wood, which held the plane in position in the box. This plane has both of those pieces, which are very scarce. It also has the original instructions, screwdriver, and the envelope with extra spurs. The worst news is that there is some light wear on the fence, including a sliver missing on the upper edge which kept me from going to a Fine- rating. The plane was clearly used, but carefully. The box is well work and pretty tatty. I would have priced it higher but for the state of the box. G++ $339


Number 85 Scraper Plane Number 85 Scraper Plane

140936 Number 85 Scraper Plane A nice example that needs only a light cleaning. The hold down screw is sweetheart marked. There is a split in the hande at the front of the base, that is tight and is not an issue. Otherwise without complaint and a lovely example that should clean to better than G+ $585




Number 24 Shelley Pat. Square

ST140663 Number 24 Shelley's Pat. Square This is an early example of the square and bevel combination square and is marked "Stanley Rule & Level Co., Pat. April 5, 1864". As found condition with a dark patina on the blade. The mark was never strong and is hard to read. The brass thumbscrew wings are bent a little from being overtightened. The square is 6" by 9". This is not a pristine tool but is a nice example that you could use or collect. G+ $119


Number 110 Block Plane

ST140324 Number 110 Block Plane This is a very clean example in the original box. The thumb nut that locks the blade has lost some of its japanning, but probably just from poor adhesion, not from use. Otherwise it would rate Fine. The box is pretty rough. It is a 1950s era plane. G++ $49




Number 6 Bailey Fore Plane

ST140238 Number 6 Bailey Fore Plane A little used sweetheart marked Stanley 6 from the 1920s with a near full original iron. this plane has a medium to dark smooth patina on the bare metal surfaces and 97% or so original japanning. The finish on the tote and knob show a bit of wear. I was really torn about the condition rating. In the end, I graded down, as I always do, but it is a very strong G+ and I would presonally be thrilled to own this plane. G+ $169


Number 90 Bullnose Plane

ST140138 Number 90 Bullnose Plane A nice as found example with better than 95% of the original nickel remaining. The blade is about 80% or better remaining. A good US made example, probably from the 1950s. Could use some light cleaning. G+ $95




604 Bedrock Smoothing Plane 604 Bedrock Smoothing Plane

ST140129 604 Bedrock Smoothing Plane This is a flat-sided Bedrock smoother for the user on a budget. It has a stained hardwood rear tote and the front knob has a chip at the base. The whole plane has been terribly overcleaned and the sole and sides have been lapped. There are hairline cracks at both sides of the mouth. These are old and stable, and I wouldn't worry about them. If you want a good user Bedrock for a song, this is it. Good $99


Number 220 Block Plane

ST131232 Number 220 Block Plane A crisp and hardly used example in the original box. The box is tatty but the plane is very nice and untouched. From the 50s or perhaps 60s. G++ $55





Number 81 Scraper

ST131222 Number 81 Scraper A classic Stanley rosewood soled scraper. Retains about 85% of the original nickel. The blade is a period replacement, marked E. C. Atkins, Silver Steel. These are very useful tools. G+ $65





Number 923 Ratcheting Brace

ST130961 Number 923 Ratcheting Brace A bright and clean Stanley 10" brace. A later example with black plastic instead of rosewood, but just as good a user as the pre-War example. Fine- Sold





Yankee Ratchet 30A

ST130871 Yankee Ratchet 30A A very clean example in the original box with the original bit envelope, with the three bits. The label says that North Brothers is a division of Stanley Tools. The box is only about Good or maybe G+, but the tool is Fine- $59




Number 60 Spokeshave Number 60 Spokeshave

ST13085 Number 60 Spokeshave This is an early example of the famous Stanley double spokesave. It is not marked Stanley, only "Patent, June 19, 1866. It is as found and retains about 1/2 of the original finish. There is a crack, that I can't explain, on the sole. It doesn't impact its use in any way. I will point it out in a photo since it is hard to describe. Good $30



Number 90 Bullnose Plane

ST130352 Number 90 Bullnose Plane A V-trademark (1910s) example with about 90% or what is probably the original blade. A good sound plane, but the nickel is coming off. It looks like the nickel didn't adhere well when it was made and has more peeled off than worn off. It has about 40-50% of the original nickel left, but it is blotchy and would not appeal to a collector. Thus the user price for an early US made example of this most desirable of Stanley planes. G+ $85


Number 8 Bailey Jointer - Prelateral

ST130360 Number 8 Bailey Jointer - Prelateral A nice as found Stanley jointer with 80-90% original japanning and a nice medium-dark patina. The original blade is well worn but still has 3/4" left to the hole. This is a wonderful honest example of a 19th Century Stanley jointer. Clearly a usable plane, but I would expect a collector to jump on this one. Reduced: G+ $229



Blades for Number 1 Plane in Box

ST130368 Blades for Number 1 Plane in Box A box of 3 new old stock blades in the original box. The box once held 6 blades according to the label. It is a steel reinforced corner box and the blades have the later Stanley logo. I am not sure when the are from but probably the 1940s or 50s. Untouched condition with some old dry grease on the blades, which would likely pass for mint if this grease is cleaned off. The box shows wear and rates G+. Fine $165


Number 9 1/2 Block Plane

ST130271 Number 9 1/2 Block Plane A crisp, clean example from the late 50s or 60s with the original hang tag from a "Orgill Bros. & Co," The blade looks to me like it has been honed, but is still the original factory grind. The bare metal surfaces have been cleaned, but respectfully done. Fine- $69




Number 90 Bullnose & 92 Shoulder  Plane

130173 Number 90 Bullnose & 92 Shoulder Plane Both planes are neatly marked on the top and the bottom, "City School". They are English made examples with full original irons. They appear to have seen little use and have 99%+ original bright nickel. Probably 1950s vintage, the finish is better than on the later ones. Sadly, on close inspection I found two tiny hairline cracks on the 92 where it had been dropped. I don't think that it will affects its use in any way, but if you drop it again that might be the last straw. Sold as a pair, but I am putting very little value on the 92.. Fine- Sold






Antique Stanley Tool Antique Stanley Tool

ST110459 Number 94 Cabinetmaker's Rabbet Plane This is as good as it gets with these. It retains about 97% of its original bright nickel. The blade looks to be full, and has the logo with the 1897 and 1900 patents. The nickel is superb on the left side but has some wear and bubbling on the left side. The term wear is probably a misnomer, as the plane has seen little if any use and the lost nickel is the result of poor adhesion. This is the connoisseur's example of this scarce plane. Fine- $445





Antique Stanley Tool

ST100640 Number 93 Cabinetmaker's Rabbet Plane This is the early style with the cast iron adjustment, with 100% original bright nickel. This is as close to mint as it is possible for a 100 year old tool to be. This must be as fine an example as exists in the world of this early style 93. For the true connoisseur. Fine+ $345



Antique Stanley Tool Antique Stanley Tool

ST90520 Stanley Tools 1927 S50 Catalog This is a small 55 page booklet style catalog. I am not an expert on these but I don't recall seeing this one before. It is marked on the back "Copyright 1927 S50" and has the sweetheart logo. The original owner put his name and the date on the cover with a pencil. Nice original condition. Fine- $65
