Autumn is in the air what the the cooler mornings and the trees starting 
to show a kiss of color.  But the flea markets are still going strong 
and stuff keeps showing up.  There are lots of new and usable tools in 
here as well as a good run of collectibles.

PayPal is now accepted and preferred (if you use it) on all items.   On 
items less than $25 (not including shipping) I would appreciate you 
using the Send Money to Family & Friends option so I don't get killed 
with the fees but that is your call. Checks and money orders are still 
welcome, it just seems that 1st Class letters seem to be taking forever 
to get from there to here.

And remember........da more ya buy, the cheaper they fly!

First contact (that is e-mail, or phone)  that says I want it gets it. 
Oldtools terms, except on items and orders over $100, if I don't know ya 
or haven't done business in the past (and my records good way back..) 
then it's pre-pay.  I do take PayPal (except as noted).  Prices do not 
include shipping.  All items are shipped with Delivery Confirmation. 
Insurance, unless it is a big order or a very fragile item is optional. 
Just let me know.  Also, I  am shipping a lot more stuff via First Class 
mail.  There will be a small amount added to the shipping cover the cost 
of the padded mailer.  I don't get them for free.

Please put your name and address in the message.  Saves time and email

Stanley SW No 65 Chamfer Spoke Shave Or Spokeshave.  This weighs 12 oz 
unboxed.  This is in good condition and was lightly cleaned.  The sole 
and the faces of the wings are good other than the factory machining 
marks.  The japanning is original, 99% on the body, there are a some 
chips on the edges of the wings.  The cap is good.  The SW blade has 
some light patina on the exposed area but the cutting face is clean and 
this looks to be close to, if not, the original length.  The blade will 
need a sharpening.  All the screws work and were oiled.  This ain't 100% 
minty but all things being equal in a hand grenade tossing contest, well 
it sure ain't bad.  $80.00

Sargent VBM No 409C Smoothing Or Smoothing Plane.  This weighs 3 lbs 5 
1/2 oz unboxed.  This is a Type 4  and was made by Sargent between 1910 
and 1918.  This is in decent condition and was cleaned.  Note this is 
straight, any bending you see is because of camera lens distortion, 
although why folks would think that I would sell a bent plane is beyond 
me.  The sides have some frosting, dings, and scratches.  The sole has 
some frosting and scratches as well.  The japanning is original and 
about 80%.  The lever cap has some frosting and I did oil the lever 
because it was squeaking and squeaking annoys me.  The chipbreaker has 
some light patina.  The blade also has some some light patina on the 
exposed areas and back.   The cutting face has some scuffs but that is 
clean otherwise.  There are some chips on the edge but the blade will 
need a sharpening anyway.  The tote is good, the knob has some dings on 
the top and a small check down at the base.  All the screws work and 
were oiled.  This ain't minty but then 100 year old tools rarely are.

Gillett Bristol England 8/8 Side Bead Molding Plane.  This weighs 1 lb 4 
1/4 oz unboxed.  The Gillett family made planes and other tools in 
Bristol England from 1801 until 1859.  This is in good condition, the 
body was cleaned by someone else, I just prettied up the iron a little. 
Note this is straight, any bending you see is because of camera lens 
distortion.  The body is good other than a small chip off of the top of 
the toe, a couple of thin checks at the heel, some tiny dings on the 
body, and the usual hammer dings on the heel.  There is a user name 
proudly stamped at both ends.  The sole and boxing are good and the 
mouth is tight and was never messed with.  The wedge is good with no 
cracks.  The cutting face of the iron has some staining but nothing 
serious patina wise.  That will need a sharpening.  These big side beads 
do no show up very often and rarely in this kind of shape.  $30.00

Vintage Dunlap 10 Inch Draw Knife Or Drawknife.  Measuring 15 3/4" 
overall, the blade is 9 15/16" long, 1 7/16" wide across the edge, and 
this weighs 1 lb 2 3/4 oz unboxed.  Dunlap was one of the brand names 
used by Sears on their tools.  This is in decent condition overall and 
was cleaned.  The back of the blade is frosted overall and there are a 
few tiny deeper dots.  The edge is good other than a few very small 
dings.  There is some dinging on the top of the blade and I cleaned some 
mushrooming off both sides.  The front of the blade also has some 
frosting and light patina.  Both handles have some dings and stains but 
they have most of the original finish.  They are both on tight.  The 
ferrules and end caps also have some frosting going.  This ain't minty 
but I sure haven't been seeing too many of these bigger ones around that 
are.  $40.00

Disston & Morss 12 Inch Cabinet Makers Try Square.  Measuring 14 1/8" 
overall, the blade is 12 1/4" long, 2 3/8" high, this is 7 7/8" overall 
in height, and this weighs 11 3/4 unboxed.  This is in decent condition 
overall and was cleaned.  The blade has some light spots of pitting 
except for by the handle on the front where there are some deeper spots. 
  The blade still retains some of the original bluing.  The edges and 
corners are good.  The handle is mahogany.  That has some dings and 
stains, just the usual wear.  This looks to be true according to the 
flip test but it ain't no Starrett.  This ain't the prettiest but 
considering that it's well over the 100 year old mark, well it sure 
ain't that bad and these bigger ones sure ain't been showing up any 
prettier.  $24.00

Millers Falls No 1950 Buck Rogers 10 Inch Sweep Brace.  This weighs 2 
lbs 8 1/4 oz unboxed.  This model was made by Millers Falls between 1950 
and 1976.  This is in reasonably good condition and was cleaned.  There 
is a little patina on the frame and chuck shell but this guy wasn't left 
out in the rain.  The chuck and jaws are good and the ratchet works in 
both directions and the locked setting.  The plastic grip and pad have 
some light dings and a few bits of paint that didn't want to come off 
without out a fight.  Both spin freely.  This ain't minty but compared 
to most of these that I see, well it sure ain't bad.  $24.00

Greenfield Tool Co 5/8 Inch Side Bead Molding Plane.  This weighs 1 lb 1 
oz unboxed.  The Greenfield Tool Co was a Greenfield Mass plane maker in 
business from 1851 until 1883.  This is in reasonably good condition. 
The only cleaning I did was to pretty up the iron a little.  The body is 
good other than a little chipping on the toe at the fence.  The sole and 
boxing are good is other than some stains and the mouth is tight.  The 
wedge is good with no noticeable wear.  The iron does have a spot spot 
of light pitting and some scuffs but nothing too bad.  That will need a 
quick sharpening.  I gotta say that there aren't too many molding planes 
of this age in this kind of condition around much at all.  $23.00

Early Taylor Patent 10 Inch Sweep Iron Bitstock.  Measuring 12 3/8" 
long, the sweep is 10", and this weighs 2 lbs 1 1/2 oz unboxed.  Not 
signed as to the maker.  Jeremy Taylor of Hebron, CT was granted Pat. 
No. 9,814 on June 30, 1836 for the design of this tool.  These were made 
in several different styles by a number of manufacturers over the years. 
  This is in reasonably good condition for the age and was cleaned. 
There is some light patina but nothing too bad.  The chuck has a little 
crusty inside but there are no cracks and the lever and tab are good. 
The sheet iron pad was originally black japanned.  Some of that remains 
on the inside.  There are a few spots of pitting on the outside.  The 
pad has a little play on the shaft but it spins freely.  I did put a 
drop of oil in the appropriate hole.  I have have a few of these over 
the years and they sure ain't getting any easier to find, especially in 
this kind of shape.  $30.00

Company worked in or around the Philadelphia PA area, from the late

and was cleaned.  It wasn't used much but it picked up some patina 
setting around someplace.  The blade has spots of frosting and staining 
but nothing too bad.  The handle has a few stained spots as well but 
it's good otherwise.  This ain't the fanciest but it will get the job 
done.  $14.00

Hand Forged Blacksmith Hot Cut Chisel Head To Restore.  Measuring 7 1/8" 
long, the edge is 1 3/8" high, and this weighs 3 lbs 1/4 oz unboxed. 
Not signed as to the maker.  This is in reasonably good condition but 
there is a problem.  Read on.  The body is fairly clean, not much in the 
way of patina.  The edge is good.  The punched eye is good.  Now for the 
READ part.  The striking end is cracked in the center and partially 
around the edge.  So that will need some work.  But I hate to scrap this 
guy and it sure didn't get here in the old tools donation box I have out

read.  This is in decent condition and was cleaned.  There is some 
overall patina, pitting and what have you.  The blade has some roughness 
around the edge.  The handle has some dings on the edges and one spot 
that is fairly banged up.  But this guy is solid.  This ain't pristine

unboxed.  Not signed as to the maker.  This is in fair condition and was 
cleaned.  This looks to be a dug item.  This has a steel face on a 
wrought iron body and the tops of the claws are lined with steel as 
well.  There is some overall pitting.  The face has some chipping around 
the edges and the claws have some chipping on the edges as well.  The 
punched eye has some crusty going and looking at the top, this may have 
been a strap hammer when first made.  This is what it is and it's not 
what I would call a user but it does have some serious age to it.  $20.00

frosting on the back and a few tiny deeper spots.  Inside the sweep 
there are more of the same.  The edge isn't too bad but it will need 
some work.  The handle looks to be the original one.  That has some 
dings and stains and there is a user name stamped in a couple of places.

some areas of light rust etching on both sides but nothing too deep and 
it has most of the original bluing.  The edges and corners are good. 
The handle is beech.  That has some stains and dings but nothing too 
bad.  This looks to be true according to the old flip test but if you 
want Starrett accuracy, well buy a Starrett.  Just saying.  This ain't

Early Hand Forged Denglestock PA Dutch Scythe Sharpening Anvil. 
Measuring 9 1/4" long, the face is 1 1/8" wide, and this weighs 1 lb 5 
1/4 oz unboxed.  Not signed as to the maker.  Now what's a denglestock 
(also spelled dengelstock and a bunch of other ways as well), you ask? 
Well them old PA Dutch (German) farmers, being of a thrifty (also know 
as cheap) bunch, instead of grinding down their scythe blades, would 
stick the denglestock into a stump or the top of a fence post and using 
a cross peen hammer (called the dengle of all things) would draw out the 
edge of the blade till it was sharp and then dress it with a stone. 
Pretty neat eh?  This is in decent condition and was cleaned.  There is 
the usual patina found on items of this age.  This does have a steel 
face set into the wrought iron body.  The face has some light pitting 
and dings but nothing too bad.  There is a line running down the one 
side of the body but that was just never smoothed out when this was made 
(and it ain't cracked either).  The spike is a little dull but that can 
be fixed easily enough.  This ain't minty but it sure ain't bad 
considering all the work that it's seen over the decades.  $24.00

scuffs, and what have you.  I did redo the edge because of some dings, 
that ain't perfect but it's better than it was.  The striking end is 
good with no cracks.  I sure ain't been seeing too many of these small

The peen is good other than the tiny dimple in the center.  The handle 
is old and could well be the original one.  That has some chipping and 
dings under the eye, the usual stains, and some dings at the end.  That

cracks that I can see.  The screws have a few dings on the threads but 
they travel the full distance and remove.  The one steel tip is shorter 
as mentioned.  They both are good otherwise but do not remove.  These 
small ones do not show up every day.  $35.00

Stanley Handyman No 432 Saw Set Or Sawset.  This weighs 11 oz unboxed. 
The tool is in very good condition and was not cleaned.  It looks like 
it was used once or twice and then put away.  The finish is perfect 
other than a few dings up under the head where the saw teeth hit it. 
There is a little rust on the spring.  The plunger and anvil are minty. 
The box does have some wear and the one corner is ripped on the lid. 
This even has the paper with it.  This is what it is, but these guys 
rarely show up in this kind of shape.  $20.00

Keen Kutter 3 1/2 Lb Forged Double Bit Axe Head.  Measuring 9 5/16" long 
(across the center), the edges are 4 5/8" and 4 9/16" high (straight 
across), and this weighs 3 lbs 8 1/2 oz unboxed.  There is a stamped 
mark below the logo that looks like an H.  This is in decent condition 
and was cleaned.  This has steel bits on a iron body.  The steel bits 
are good for the most part, there is some frosting and spots of light 
patina.  The one edge has a chip out of it and both of them would need a 
sharpening but there is lots of steel left.  The iron body has some 
light pitting.  The eye has some crusty inside but it's good to go, 
considering how long it took to the remnant of the handle out of the 
eye.  This ain't minty but these guys rarely are, and I would dare say 
that a minty one would fetch a whole lot more than what I'm asking for 
this guy.  $35.00

staining on the head but nothing worth kicking the cat over.  The face 
is good.  The peen has a little roughness.  The handle is good.  This 
ain't fancy but it is a neat little hammer.  $18.00

Stanley No 42W Saw Set Or Sawset.  This weighs 14 oz unboxed.  This is 
in used but good condition and was not cleaned.  This is black japanned 
so it was made prior to the "blue" period which started in 1961. The 
finish is good other than a few small dings and a little funky that 
looks like oil residue.  The decal is worn.  The plunger and anvil are 
good.  All the screws work just like they are supposed to work.  This 
ain't no Stanley 42X and don't buy it, thinking that it is, but it is a 
good working tool.  $24.00

Early Bowl Carving Gouge Hand Forged From A File.  Measuring 12 1/8" 
long, the blade is a little under 1 1/8" wide across the edge, and this 
weighs 5 3/4 oz unboxed.  Not signed as to the maker.  This is in decent 
condition for the age and was cleaned.  There are some spots of light 
pitting on the back of the blade but nothing too bad.  The edge will 
need a touch up in the sharpening department.  The handle has some dings 
and stains but it's solid and the blade is in tight.  This is a pushing 
and not a pounding tool.  This ain't pretty or perfect but these guys 
sure don't show up very often.  $22.00

Vintage Snell No 4 Screw Starter Brace Bit.  Measuring 5 5/8" long and 
this weighs 1 1/4 oz unboxed.  This is in reasonably good condition and 
was cleaned.  There ain't much in the way of patina to fuss about other 
than a little up in the groove.  The bit edge is good.  The countersink 
edge will need a quick sharpening.  There is a little chipping on the 
end of the tang but there is plenty there to grab with the brace chuck. 
I gotta say that these guys are sure getting few and far between in this 
kind of shape.  $14.00

Starrett S060 Carpenters 6 Ft Zig Zag Rule.  This weighs 5 1/2 oz 
unboxed.  This is in good condition and was not cleaned.  It does not 
look like it was used much if at all.  The finish is good on both sides. 
  There is some green funky on the tops of the one hinge on both sides 
but the rest are clean.  This ain't 100% minty but it's pretty darn 
close.  $24.00

Early European Ships Lap Rabbet Molding Plane.  Measuring 10 1/8" long, 
the cut is 7/16", and this weighs 10 oz unboxed.  Not signed as to the 
maker on the body, the iron is signed.  This is in reasonable condition 
for the age and use and was cleaned.  Note:  This is straight, any 
bending you see is from camera lens distortion.  The body has some 
stains and dings.  There is some chipping on the top of the toe and a 
few long dead holes of worm on the top.  There are decorative score 
marks and layout lines as well.  The second depth stop is applied 
(glued) but it was made from the same wood as the body and is original. 
The sole has some tiny bits of paint down in the grain that didn't want 
to come off without a fight.  The mouth isn't super tight but it's not 
too bad.  The wedge is good and looks to be original.  The iron is clean 
on the cutting face and I did take a little bit of sharp mushrooming off 
of the end of the tang.  The iron will need a sharpening.  This style of 
plane does not show up very often, either from domestic or the overseas 
makers.  $25.00

Hydra-Core DG-6 Depth Gage Or Gauge.  This weighs 1 1/2 oz unboxed. 
This is one of the older models which has a General No. 311 standard and 
metric rule.  This is in good condition and was not cleaned.  It really 
does not look like it was used much at all.  There is a little staining 
on the rule and rod but nothing too bad.  The box is good.  This is a 
neat tool to say the least.  $18.00

to the maker, there are user initials marked on the outer end of the 
brass scale.  This is in reasonably good condition and was cleaned.  The 
steel arms have some frosting and stains but nothing too bad.  The tips 
are good and the joint and spring work well.  I did put a little oil 
down in the joint.  The brass scale is good and all the rulings 
readable. This is neat tool to say the least.  $20.00

Brown & Sharpe No 754-F 3 1/2 Inch Machinist Bar Clamp.  This weighs 1 
lb 7 3/4 oz unboxed.  This is in decent condition overall and was 
cleaned, but not by me.   There is a section of light patina on the one 
jaw, the rest is okay.  The jaw tips have some scuff marks on the ends 
and sides but the insides are fairly good.  There is a scuff of sorts on 
the back where it looks like someone powerwashed off a user mark.  Both 
screws are good and travel the full distance.  This ain't pristine but 
it will get the job done.  $20.00

condition and were not cleaned.  There really ain't much in the way of 
patina to fuss about.  The tips are good and the screws work.  Outside 
of finding them new in the box, they don't get much better than this.

overall, the head is 4 1/2" long, the groove is 3/16" across the inside, 
about 5/16" across the outside, and this weighs 1 lb 8 1/4  oz unboxed. 
This is in decent condition and was cleaned.  The head has the usual 
patina.  Somebody cleaned the mushrooming off of two of the faces before 
it got here, the other two still have some.  The face has some dings but 
nothing too bad.  The groove has some light dings along the edges.  The 
handle is old.  That has some dinging under the eye and the usual 
stains.  I knocked the wedge in and the head is on tight setting here 
but things do loosen up in shipping.  These guys sure ain't getting any 
easier to find, at least around there here parts.  $25.00

Original Small Bag Black Powder Horn Or Powderhorn.  Measuring 6 7/8" 
long (straight across), the plug end is 2 5/16" by 1 7/8", and this 
weighs 3 1/2 oz unboxed.  Not signed as to the maker.  This is in as 
found condition and was not cleaned.  The horn is good for the most part 
other than a thin check along the curve down by the spout.  There are a 
few dings as well but no worm damage.  The spout plug is missing.  The 
end plug is pine.  A couple of brads may have been replaced and the ring 
also looks to have been replaced at some point.  There is some air 
leakage around the end plug but there are ways to deal with that.  I 
gotta say that these guys sure have been hard to find, at least around 
these here parts.  $25.00
