Number 4 Bailey Smoothing Plane Number 4 Bailey Smoothing Plane

ST16124 Number 4 Bailey Smoothing Plane An apparently unused Stanley smoothing plane in the original box. The plane is crisp and untouched, with a strikingly grained tote, the nicest post-war Stanley tote that I have ever seen. This is a 1950s plane, but it is from the period where they were trying to recapture the pre-war quality and it is superb. It only needs honing and you can use it. The box has two torn corners in the lid but is quite a good box as well. A rare find. Fine+ $149


Number 97 Marking Gauge

ST16127 Number 97 Marking Gauge This is the style of Stanley gauge with a wheel at one end and a pin at the other, so you can mark with either one. The wheels leave a nice line but they have the disadvantage of not leaving precise starting and stopping points. This is a gothic script example. The nickel is peeling in spots and is about 60% remaining. G+ $39



Number 5 1/2 Jumbo Jack Plane

ST161211 Number 5 1/2 Jumbo Jack Plane A clean and little used example from the 1950s. The front knob has the darker finish of the 1950s but the tote has a lighter finish that shows of the grain in the rosewood. The tote may be off of a pre-war plane. The plane is crisp with a nice full blade. G++ $135




Number 8C Bailey Jointer Number 8C Bailey Jointer

ST161212 Number 8C Bailey Jointer An attractive Stanley corrugated jointer from a good collection that has been cleaned. The brass lugs were polished, which I don't like, but otherwise it has a nice light patina, a near full blade, and about 95% or more of the original japanning. This plane has a very scarce blade logo, the block letter Stanley, which is said to have only been used in 1909. So, unlike most Stanley planes that we sell, this one we can date to a specific year. A former own has put two identical marks on each side, that I presume were to identify his plane. This is a particularly nice 8 that is worthy of a collection or a discerning user. G++ Sold


Number 5 Bailey Jack Plane

ST161216 Number 5 Bailey Jack Plane A Sweet heart marked (1920s) Stanley 5 that is lightly rusty oferall and needs a thorough restoration. The sole is actually pretty clean, since it was sitting on the sole. The rosewood tote and knob are nice. These are worth $50 alone. This is not a heavily used plane, it has a near full blade, it is just neglected. Should clean to better than Good Sold



Number 9 Cabinetmaker Number 9 Cabinetmaker Number 9 Cabinetmaker

ST161219 Number 9 Cabinetmaker's Block Plane A superb Stanley #9 mitre plane with the original side handle. The side handle retains about 70% of the original nickel. . The plane has a even light patina. The rosewood knob has perfect color and appears to glow. It has a near full original sweetheart iron There are a few light scratches on the sole but this is undoubtedly the nicest 9 that I have ever had. For the connoisseur. Fine Sold



Number 606 Bedrock Fore Plane Number 606 Bedrock Fore Plane

ST161226 Number 606 Bedrock Fore Plane An attractive Stanley Bedrock fore plane with the wider base tote and a blade logo that would date it to around 1908-1910. There is a small loss to the upper left rear edge of the tote spur. Otherwise I have no complaints on this one. It has an attractive medium-dark patina and retains about 97% of its original japanning. The digit 6 is stamped into the front knob and there are some random numbers stamped onto the left side. A nice example. G+ $175


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

ST161236 Number 55 Combination Plane A clean and lightly used Stanley 55 in the original tall cardboard box. The box is also in nice condition, much nicer than most, other than having had an idiot write on the side with a felt tip pen. The plane is missing two blades, the #11, which is a narrow grooving blade, and #102, a small astragal with ogee. Otherwise complete and ready for you to enjoy as a user or a collector's piece. Fine- $575



Number 18 Knuckle Joint Block Plane

ST161148 Number 18 Knuckle Joint Block Plane A very clean as found Stanley #18 block plane from the 30s. It has the thick and translucent finish of that period and a bright nickeled lever cap. I gave it the minus because soembody has lightly scratched "WMG" on the side. It is in no way obtrusive. This is a great example. Fine- $69




Number 5 Bailey Jack Plane Number 5 Bailey Jack Plane

ST161151 Number 5 Bailey Jack Plane An as found Stanley jack plane of about 1900, with the wide base tote. The rear tote has lovely grain in the rosewood, but there is old cloth tape wrapped around the tote at the top. I have no idea why but I would think that it is likely hiding some defect. The rest of the plane has no issues, it just needs cleaning. It has light surface oxidation on the sole. The blade has about 75% remaining. This is a great opportunity to get a good pre-war Stanley 5 for a flea market price. It should clean to G+ Sold


Number 3C Bailey Smoothing Plane

ST161166 Number 3C Bailey Smoothing Plane A quite nice example that has been properly cleaned of a Stanley 3C of about 1902-1905. It has about 75% remaning of the 1892 patent date blade. The bare metal surfaces have a nice even medium patina and the tote has most of its original finish, albeit with some tool box rash. This is a nice one for somebody who appreciates the quality of old Stanley tools over the copies made today and sold for many times more money. G+ $99


Number 80M Ram

ST161122 Number 80M Ram's Horn Scraper A very clean as found example in a very clean original box. The box is the later style with the metal reinforced corners. It also has the original instructions on how to sharpen it. The M stood for malleable and is supposedly much less likely to break when dropped. I have never tested that but I do know that iron breaks like glass when dropped onto concrete. Fine Sold



Number 42X Saw Set

ST161125 Number 42X Saw Set The most sought after of all pistol grip saw sets, the 42X is the gold standard of saw sets. This one is as found and has some surface corrosion on the bare metal surfaces. It is fine to use as it is but you could probably improve its appearance a bit with a judicious cleaning and lubrication. G+ Sold




Number 90 Bullnose Plane

ST161128 Number 90 Bullnose Plane A bright clean Stanely 90 with about 97% of the original nickel remaining. There are tiny spots of corrosion where the nickel is gone. It has a full original iron. Probably a 1950s plane. G++ $85





Number 8 Bailey Jointer

ST161133 Number 8 Bailey Jointer A dirty as found Stanley 8 of about 1900 with the 1892 patent date logo. Needs a good cleaning but it will make a good user and is cheap for an 8. Good Sold





Number 8C Bailey Jointer

ST161134 Number 8C Bailey Jointer A nicely cleaned Stanley jointer of about 1900 with a near full 1892 patent date iron. There is some very light and recent staining on this plane that should clean right off. A great user grade plane. G+ Sold




Number 4 Bailey Smoothing Plane

ST161137 Number 4 Bailey Smoothing Plane This plane was made in April, 1942, only 5 months after the war began. The wartime planes are dated on the blade. It still has beatufiful rosewood and a brass adjuster, but the lugs to hold the tote and knob are steel. The lever cap is not nickel plated, as was standard during the war. This plane looks barely used, but typical of barely used planes, which were normally misused during their brief useage, the cutting edge is very rough and needs grinding. A superb user plane. Fine- Sold


Number 5 Bailey Jack Plane

ST161116 Number 5 Bailey Jack Plane A very nice Stanley jack plane of about 1900. This plane predates Leonard Bailey's death and does not have his name on the front, which was added when he died in 1902. It has the wider base tote and the beaded front knob. Also a full original iron with the 1892 pat datre logo. A very clean plane that could really be rated a notch higher. G+ Sold



Number 6 Bailey Fore Plane

ST161098 Number 6 Bailey Fore Plane A sweetheart marked Stanly 6 with a heavier than usual casting. It feels more like a 1950s plane with the heavy casting. The rosewood is fantastic, with great grain and color and perfect condition. The bare metal surfaces on the body have been cleaned and have a medium patina. The blade and cap iron have a medium patina and there is some light pitting on the top part of the blade. The blade is full original length. I doubt that this plane was used more than a few times. It is bargain priced because I have an over stock of 6s on hand now. G+ Sold


Stanley No. 624 Hand Drill

ST1610111 Stanley No. 624 Hand Drill A very clean Stanley Egg Beater style drill. This is a larger model, a bit heavier durty than a Millers Falls #2 for example. The chuck works very smoothly and seems a bit higher quality than a Millers Falls chuck. The wood is rosewood. The only flaws are that the orange paint on the main gear has some chips and the finish on the side handle is a bit deriorated. There are no bits in the head. Really a nice drill and rates a strong G++ $75


Number 4 Bailey Smoothing Plane

ST1610118 Number 4 Bailey Smoothing Plane A nice clean Stanley #4 smoothing plane from about 1930. It has a nice medium patina on the bare metal surfaces and retains at least 95% of the original japanning. It as the 1930s style logo on the blade, which has about 80% remaining. In short a great pre-War stanley smoothing plane for your shop. G+ Sold



Number 299 Trimming Knife

ST1610120 Number 299 Trimming Knife A Stanley box knife in the original box. The box lists a slew of uses, but opening boxes is actually not on the list. I can still hear blades in the handle. The box is from the 1950s and is in nice condition. The tool is painted red and the red has some light wear and the initials F J scratched in. G+ $45



Number 5 1/4 Junior Jack Plane

ST1610124 Number 5 1/4 Junior Jack Plane A nice honest example from the 1920s with about 90% of the original sweetheart marked iron remaining. G+ Sold





Number 603C Bedrock Smoothing Plane

ST161064 Number 603C Bedrock Smoothing Plane A good original Stanley Bedrock smoothing plane of about 1900, give or take a bit. It has about 70% of the 1892 patent date blade remaining. A collector has very lightly, and properly, cleaned the sides and sole so that they havea light patina. The lever cap is untouched and has a medium-dark patina. The wood is nice, with its original finish. The color of the rosewood in the rear is rather light and this might be from sun induced fading or it might have just been a lightly colored piece of wood. The japanning is about 97%. A nice honest example. G+ $145


Number 148 Match Plane

ST161071 Number 148 Match Plane A 7/8" Stanley going and coming tongue and groove plane. The nickel shows honest wear and is around 70%. The blade has the sweetheart logo. A very handy user tool. G+ $95





Number 6 Fore Plane

ST161074 Number 6 Fore Plane A lovely Stanley Fore plane of about 1900, with the wider base tote. The bare metal surfaces all have a pleasing even medium patina. The blade is replaced, probably recently, with a NOS V trademark blade (about 15 years newer than the plane). The blade is right like new and doesn't match the patina of the rest of the plane. The rosewood is quite nice on this one and the japanning is about 97%. This is a particularly nice example that I priced cheaply because of the replaced blade. A bargain for a user. G++ $109


Number 12 1/2 Scraper Plane

ST161058 Number 12 1/2 Scraper Plane A good user example with a crisp sole and the original Stanley blade marked in block letters as used before 1920. The sides have been painted black, and it apears that the original japanning may also be painted over. I am not sure. It is nicely done, but the plane would have rated much higher. This was done a long time ago by an owner, not by a recoent collector tyring to restore it. It will make a great user. It is untouched. If the paint on the sides bothers you, it could easilty be stripped off. As a user, I wouldn't worry about it. G+ $129


Number 12 Scraper Plane

ST16107 Number 12 Scraper Plane A crisp and very nice as found example This is the condition that I like my own tools to be in when I find them. The rosewood has particularly nice grain as well. The brass pieces have nice patina with traces of original lacquer. The japanning is good except in one spot on the bed where the user's thumbs would have been pressing on the bed. This loss is clearly visible in the photo, centered around the 12 which is cast into the body. Sadly the blade was missing when I bought it. I am selling it with a new Hock iron from our new tool division. G++ $109



Number 3 Bailey Smoothing Plane

ST161011 Number 3 Bailey Smoothing Plane A sweetheart marked Stanley 3 with nice rosewood. The tote retains most of the orginal 1920s decal. The blade is near full. The cutting edge is rough and needs to be ground, but otherwise I can't fault this plane. It is quite a nice example from Stanley's golden age. G+ $99




Number 10 Inlaid Try Square

ST16092 Number 10 Inlaid Try Square A very scarce early Stanley #10 square with rosewood inlaid into the solid steel stock. It is the 6" size. The blade is marked Stanley in block letters, characteristic of the early Stanley marking. IT has been cleaned a bit but is still crisp with some light patina. I don't recall ever having one of these before. The quality is superb. G+ $195



Number 66 Hand Beader

ST16085 Number 66 Hand Beader A complete 66 hand beader. The tool itself has nearly all its bright original nickel and rates fine. The blades and the curved fence are not as clean, and rate about G+. A very useful tool in better condition than most. G++ Sold




Number 605C Bedrock Jack Plane

ST160657 Number 605C Bedrock Jack Plane An as found Bedrock jack plane that has a medium dark patina. The base of the handle is cracked, but it is fine to use just as it is. I haven't removed the handle but it seems to be solidly glued. Otherwise a nice plane and bargain priced. G+ Sold




Number 60 Double Spokeshave

ST160645 Number 60 Double Spokeshave A nice as found example. Both blades are full length, but both of them need to be reground before you hone it for use. G++ $45





Number 18 1/4 Block Plane

ST160649 Number 18 1/4 Block Plane A nice as found example with a medium-dark patina on the bare metal surfaces. The sole does have some light pitting that won't hurt a thing but could be lapped out if it bothers you. A great user. G+ $45





Number 220 Block Plane

ST160566 Number 220 Block Plane A nice clean early 220 with the cast iron adjustment knob. This plane has been properly cleaned and waxed by a responsible collector. The full iron has the half moon logo. A really nice example. G++ $59





Number 113 Compass Plane

ST16055 Number 113 Compass Plane An earlier style 113 with the side wheel depth adjustment. The nickel is still bright and mostly intact, which gives this tool a striking appearance. The japanning is also bright and glossy, with some tool box rash on the sides. The steel sole needs a light cleaning, motly on the upper surface, the working suface being clean except for one small spot of light surface rust that will come right off. Rates a strong G+ $165


Number 921 8" Brace

ST160515 Number 921 8" Brace A good quality Stanley brace with genuine rosewood. The nickel is peeling around the chuck and it only retains about 60% of the nickel. A great user, but not the bright example with 99% nickel that most users love, which is why it is priced to sell. G+ $49




Number 60 Double Spokeshave

ST160529 Number 60 Double Spokeshave A nice clean as found example with sweetheart marked irons. Some toolbox wear to the finish, but still a much better than average example with full length original irons. G++ $49





Number 59 Doweling Jig

ST160477 Number 59 Doweling Jig This 1950s example is truly as new in the box. It has the depth stop as well as the six guides. It also has the instructions, a store display piece, and a small brochure for the 77 doweling machine. The paperwork is a bit oil stained. You won't find a better one. The box is nice and rates near fine, but the tool really is Mint $60



Number 60 Double Spokeshave

ST1603104 Number 60 Double Spokeshave A nice as found Sweetheart marked example with most of the original bright japanning (98%+) The blades appear to have never been honed, althought it has been used at least once, albeith without being sharpened first. There is white plastic or something like it clogging the mouth on the concave side. This tool needs a light cleaning, but should rate better than G++ $49



Number 101 1/2 Bullnose Block Plane Number 101 1/2 Bullnose Block Plane Number 101 1/2 Bullnose Block Plane

ST160396 Number 101 1/2 Bullnose Block Plane A scarce Stanley 101 1/2 with the footbal shaped logo. This plane has been used and is probably missing more than half of its original japanning. The sides and sole have been cleaned a bit by a collector and lack patina. I have seen quite a few of these faked, but genuine ones like this really are hard to find. G+ $369



Number 9 1/2 Block Plane

ST160352 Number 9 1/2 Block Plane An as found Stanley block plane from the 1950s. A bit dark and with some missing finish, but certainly a good user that you can sharpen up and start using. G+ Sold





Number 6C Fore Plane Number 6C Fore Plane Number 6C Fore Plane

ST160311 Number 6C Fore Plane A very clean Stanley 6C in the original box. This plane has the scarce 1930s logo blade with the patent number under the logo. The box has as sweetheart logo, which is consistent as they were using up the old boxes in the 30s when things were moving slowly. The plane has been used, but probably only a few times. The only criticism that I can make is that the glossy varnish on the wood has some scatteed nicks and scratches which would not even be noticed if the plane was not otherwise so good. Rates a strong G++ $199


Number 5 1/2C Jumbo Jack Plane

ST160334 Number 5 1/2C Jumbo Jack Plane A nice as found sweetheart marked example with a near full original iron and nice light patina overall. There is a hard to expain notch in the front of the tote, that doesn't compromise its use. That is the only flaw worth mentioning. A nice example for a user or collector. G++ $169




Ball Pein Hammer

ST160343 Ball Pein Hammer This hammer looks unused although the decal on the handle is deteriorated and almost gone. It is not marked but seems to be a 5 ounce head. I am not sure of the age, but it is US made and certainly not recent production. The decal looks like 1950s or 60s to me. Fine $39




Number 5 1/4 Junior Jack Plane

ST1602112 Number 5 1/4 Junior Jack Plane A 1930s Stanley 5 1/4 in the original box. The box has two torn out corners but is a decent looking box. The plane is very clean with great wood and about 98% japanning. There are a few minor marks on the sole or I would have gone one notch higher on the condition. G++ $169




Number 7C Bailey Jointer Number 7C Bailey Jointer

ST1602117 Number 7C Bailey Jointer A nice as found Stanley 7 of about 1900. The wood on this plane is particularly nice, with a striking figure to the early style wide base tote. The iron body has a pleasing light patina. The japanning on this plane is peeling in spots and is not very good, otherwise the plane would have rated better than G+ $169



Number 49 Bit Gauge

ST160254 Number 49 Bit Gauge An apparently unused example in the original box. The bot has the textured surface of the 1950s although the label is clearly a left over pre-War label. The original price of $1 is written on the bottom. Fine $43




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

ST160280 Number 45 Combination Plane A super clean Stanley 45 from the 1950s in the original box. The nickel on this plane shines like new and I could find no evidence of any nickel loss. The only thing that I could find were a few very small marks in the finish on the rosewood. It has the origal instructions, the original envelope with extra spurs, and the original screwdriver. The one bad thing is that a fool has stropped the top of each blade with a power strop. Not just the bevel, the entire top. These should be redone properly with oil stones before you use them. A few of the blades have tiny spot of rust, but nothing that won't come right off. The box is intact but is not nearly as nice as the plane. These fiew little things keep this plane from being another $100. It is that good. For the connoisseur. Fine $359.00


Winterbottom Pat. Square

ST160234 Winterbottom Pat. Square A very clean and crisp 6" square with the Pat. 2-8-98 mark on the blade. The blade has some very light surface rust on the side that is marked (and pictures). The opposite sideis perfect. The wood still has the original laquer and the brass is crsip like new. A superb example. Fine- Sold




Catalog:  Stanley Tools

ST160235 Catalog: Stanley Tools A 55 page pocket catalog, copywrite 1927. The cover is detached because the staples tore through, and a little soiled. The remainder is quite clean and still stapled securely. For 89 years old and meant to be a disposable item, it has done pretty well. G+ $39




Number 93 Butt & Rabbet Gauge

ST160167 Number 93 Butt & Rabbet Gauge A particularly nice as found tool with only light wear to the nickel on the fence. Marked with the sweetheart logo and the gothic script on the body. Rates a strong G++ $75





Number 6 Bailey Fore Plane

ST160193 Number 6 Bailey Fore Plane This is a nice as found Stanley 6 of about 1900. It has the older style tote that is a bit more flated out at the base. The tote was made from a particularly nice piece of Brazillian rosewood and has a nicer figure than most. The plane does need a light cleaning, but has a lovely medium dark patina and is a very attractive example. The blade has been ground with a curvature, which is appropriate for a fore plane, but there are two small nicks in the edge you will need to grind the bevel before you hone it. The japanning is more than half gone, and this is really what has held this plane down condition wise and price wise. It will make a great user for a veyr reasonable price. G+ $129


Number 20 Victor Compass Plane

ST160149 Number 20 Victor Compass Plane A nice honest as found Stanley compass plane with the 1892 patent date logo on the blade. There is some nickel loss, mainly on the left side, and a few stains on the sole, but this is a great user example that is not priced like a prstine example. G+ $179




Number 148 Match Plane

ST160110 Number 148 Match Plane A sweetheart marked example that is as found, and needs a light cleaning, but retains about all of the nicek and was clearly not used more than a few times. It comes with the original box, but the box is a wreck and I put no value on the box. A superb example Fine- $125




Number 278 Combination Fillester and Bullnose

ST151114 Number 278 Combination Fillester and Bullnose This scarce Stanley plane retains about 20% of the original japaning but is in nice original condition. It has been cleaned by a collector. This is an early example with the 1916 patent date on the blade. A good honest example for a reasonable price. G+ $265




Number 20 Victor Compass Plane

ST150910 Number 20 Victor Compass Plane A japanned version of Stanley's classic compass plane. This plane has clean bare metal surfaces, and has probably seen very little use, but the japanning has significant tool box wear and is around 85%. A great user example for a reasonable price. G+ $175




Number 6C Stanley Fore Plane

ST150849 Number 6C Stanley Fore Plane A nicer user Stanley corrugaged fore plane from the teens. It has the three patent dates on the bed. which retains about 98% of its original japanning in nice condition. The bare metal surfaces have a pleasing medium patina. This would be a more expensive plane but for two things. The rear tote has much tool box rash on it than it should for this plane, and was clearly taken from another plane. Also, the blade and cap iron have almost no patina, and are probably new old stock. The iron has the logo that was used before the V trademark, but I would think that this plane had a V trademark iron when new. So, these two minor things, which would bother a collector, make it a very affordable user for a plane in this nice condition. G+ $145


Number 12 Scraper

ST150870 Number 12 Scraper A good honest as found example. The blade is unmarked and is worn down a bit but has plenty of life left in it. Needs a good cleaning but will be a great user. Should clean to at least G+ $89





Number 90 Cabinetmaker

ST150872 Number 90 Cabinetmaker's Bullnose A nice as found plane that retains about 95% of the oginal nickel, but there is old dried grease, or something, discoloring it a bit. It retains about 25% of the original sweetheart marked iron. When the mark was struck on the iron it bounced so it has a double strike, which a collector might not like. A great user tool. G+ $79



Number 21 12 in. combination Square

ST150647 Number 21 12 in. combination Square A nice as found example from the 1930s. It has a few scattered stains but it should clean to about Fine- $55






Number 92 Butt & Rabbet Gauge

ST150543 Number 92 Butt & Rabbet Gauge This is a very early example of this tool, and is marked "STANLEY, Pat Pen'g". There is an old chip out of the head near the thumbscrew. Otherwise it is in nice as found condition. G+ $85





No. 30A Yankee Spiral Ratchet Screw Driver

ST150557 No. 30A Yankee Spiral Ratchet Screw Driver An apparenly unused example in the original box with the three original bits in an envelope. This is as good as it gets. The box is also bright and nice. Fine+ $65





Yankee No. 31A Sprital Ratchet Screw Driver

ST150466 Yankee No. 31A Sprital Ratchet Screw Driver A large Yankee screwdriver in the original box with the original three bits. The top is the metal reinforced version but the bottom has been taped at the corners. A nice lean tool that has seen very little use. G++ $55




Number 81 Scraper Plane

ST150460 Number 81 Scraper Plane A nice as found example with 95% plus of the original nickel remaining and a good rosewood sole. The blade has the etching of a Disston number 7 saw right in the middle of it, clearly having been carefully made from an old Disston saw. I am sure that this blade will work great, but we do sell replacement blades for this tool made by Ron Hock. One of my personal favorite Stanley designs. G+ $75



Number 59-200 1 1/4 pound Hatchet

ST150365 Number 59-200 1 1/4 pound Hatchet This hatchet has a worn sticker on it that reads "Jobmaster Axe" One can also make out "Made in USA" on the worn sticker. I would call this a hatchet but you could call it a hand axe. It is marked on the handle 1 1/4 pound, which seems to be the head weight. It is as found and not all that old. I would guess 1970s but you might know better. Certainly a good user that is still US made, i.e. quality. G++ $49


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 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 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 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 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




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 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 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+ $485




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+ $99


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+ $75




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+ $59





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- $49




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+ Sold


Number 20 Square

ST161163 Number 20 Square A common 12" Stanley square in usuable but neglected condition. The blade has a dark oxidized surface. The rosewood handle shows tool box wear but is not bad. It should clean up quite a bit. Free to the first person who orders it and spends $100 on Stanley tools. Good $0




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 $149
