Diamond Edge DE3. Number three size, with DE3 cast into bed behind tote, hard rubber tote with the Norvell Shapleigh Diamond Edge mark cast into both sides, proper marked cutter. Good+ 60-120 B61-754 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/9701/b61-754 B61-754 BENCH PLANE. Steers No. 303. 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 nearly intact with very light wear at the toe and a few scratches. Proper marked cutter, and has the often missing lever cap insert. Tote skillfully reglued, japanning repainted. From the collection of Cliff Sapienza. Good 200-400 B61-753 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/9700/b61-753 B61-753 FORE PLANE. Siegley No. 8. Like the earliest versions of Siegley's planes, the sole is corrugated top and bottom, with no markings, and no lateral adjustment. However, it doesn't have the throat adjustment, and the knob and tote are painted black and not checked. The lever cap has a No. 8 cast into it, but it's 17" long with a 2-3/8" cutter. It's possible that the lever cap is a transplant, but it fits and, as PTAMPIA points out, Siegley was never very consistent with its sizes and model numbers. The cutter is very faintly marked with the patent date and there's a tight check in the knob.

The bench planes made by Buckeye Saw Vise Manufacturing Co. of Cleveland, used the combination lever cap, cutter clamp, and adjustment mechanism patented in 1904 by John Muehl, another attempt to improve on the Bailey design doomed to failure but a fascinating gizmo and a rare plane. 17-1/2" corrugated sole, 2-1/4" cutter, "Buckeye 6" and the patent date cast into the bed. A couple of small chips from maple tote, japanning worn but intact, some pitting to metal. From the collection of Cliff Sapienza.

Not the Stanley made version but the original Sargent model. The plane itself is immaculate with all of its parts, the set of 23 cutters has seen some use, some are shortened from sharpening and have a little surface rust, canvas roll has some tears and staining but intact.

The "E" means it was made for export, but otherwise it's a regular No. 45, Type 15 with third sweetheart on skate. Bright and shiny, complete set of cutters in original boxes with good labels, all parts including screwdriver, extra spur in envelope and instruction sheet. Pasteboard box is fully intact with good label, paper peeling off one side of the lid. You will look a long, long time to find a nicer sweetheart era 45.

Block plane with 5-8" sole and 1-1/4" unmarked cutter The lever cap is hooked onto a metal hook cast into the bed, which was issued to John Thropp of Sheffield, and most examples were made by Wingfield & Rowbotham, a firm founded in 1751 and better known for its edge tools and cutlery. It is found on a variety of planes, but is not always marked. Slight chipping to the top of the left cheek, otherwise very clean. Good+ 80-150 B61-739 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/9686/b61-739 B61-739 PATTERNMAKER'S INTERCHANGEABLE SOLE PLANE. Phelps Manufacturing. Uncommon example of the plane manufactured by Phelps in Oakland, CA, in the 1920s. This is the adjustable type shown in Figure 443 of PTAMPIA II, includes four of the five bottoms normally supplied and six cutters. Phelps bought their plane bodies, lever caps, totes and knobs from Stanley and this one has Stanley marked on the lateral. Aluminum body with "Phelps, Oakland, CA" cast behind the frog.

Has a manufactured look, but unmarked and could by the product of a skilled craftsman. 21-1/2" sole, 2-3/8" unmarked cutter bedded bevel up, modified to fit the vertical post adjustment mechanism. Adjustable throat, with two bosses cast into the bed on either side of the knob with screws that lock it in placer. Open rosewood tote mounted on wooden fill at the heel. The tote is badly chipped at the end, otherwise in very clean condition. From the collection of Cliff Sapienza.

Patented in 1941 by Robert McConnell of Brisbane, it consists of a flat cast iron sole, 9-1/2" long, with an angled support used to secure the cutter and cylindrical rear handle. Marked with McConnell's name and the patent number. The bolts holding the rear handle on may be replacements.

Good clean example of this 9" smoothing plane with cast iron tote and Bailey's 4/10/77 cutter adjustment patent, designed after he lost his patent litigation with Stanley. Casting on knob is worn but clear, japanning 90%. Fine 250-450 B61-735 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/9682/b61-735 B61-735 SMOOTHING PLANE. Birmingham Plane Co. Based on George Mosher's 1884 patent' 9-1/4" sole, with the clamp-type cutter holder (PTAMPIA I, figure 233b). Cutter looks original but is pitted, obscuring the mark. Japanning 50%, cap screw rusted. Overall kind of grubby, but no damage and would clean up nicely. Good 200-400 B61-734 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/9681/b61-734 B61-734 JOINTER PLANE. Steers Patent No. 407. William Steers is best known for planes with rosewood strips dovetailed into the sole to reduce friction, but the Brattleboro Tool Co. marketed two separate lines of Steers planes, including one line with traditional metal soles but with the adjustment mechanism based on Steers' 1885 patent, and those are rarer than the composite sole planes. See PTAMPIA II, pp. 142-43. This is a nice clean example, 22" sole, japanning 75%, a few minor chips from the rosewood tote, proper marked cutter. From the collection of Cliff Sapienza. Fine 300-600 B61-733 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/9680/b61-733 B61-733 JOINTER PLANE. 25-1/2" sole, 2-1/2" Globe Manufacturing cutter. It has "JBT OCT 1885" cast in raised letters behind the tote, which doesn't correspond to any manufacturer or patent we know of. We can only assume that some user cast it himself, or had it cast, in October 1885 and wanted his initials immortalized. No adjustments, beech knob, tote and wedge, wedge has a big divot out of it and the tote has the tip broken off. Good 80-150 B61-732 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/9679/b61-732 B61-732 LOT OF TWO STANLEY ALUMINUM PLANES. Nos. A 4 and A18. Both with sweetheart cutters. The A4 has the patent date cast behind the frog and a good tote with 75% decal, most nickel gone from the lever cap and some scratches in the sole. The A18 has overall discoloration and light corrosion but good lever cap. Good & better. 100-180 B61-731 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/9678/b61-731 B61-731 CAST IRON JOINTER PLANE. This plane is a mystery. It's early and clearly manufactured and has the remnants of a paper label, but it's illegible. There's a nearly identical example in the fore plane size in Figure 149 of PTAMPIA II but Roger didn't know who made it and neither do we. This one is 21-1/2" long, with an unmarked 2-1/2" cutter. It has ports on toe and heel to allow you to load it with lead shot, just in case it isn't already heavy enough for you. From the collection of Cliff Sapienza. Good+ 400-800
