In using a pit saw, the tiller is the handle that the man on top of the pit uses to pull up on the saw. This one is unmarked although the consignor has helpfully included a picture from a Richardson catalog illustrating one that's identical. The cast iron handle is 17" long and fastens to the blade with a bolt and cotter pin arrangement, and is friction fit into a traverse 18" wooden handle. Now all you need is a saw and somebody willing to be the pitman.

Wood Tool Co. In 1911, Stanley entered the chisel business by its purchase of G.E Wood Tool Co. which gave it ownership of a series of patents by the father and son team of George A. and George E. Wood, who revolutionized chisel design by providing a one-piece steel blade and shank extending completely through the handle and peened to form the striking end. (Previously, Stanley had marketed the chisels made by Wood.) This complete set represents the Wood output prior to Stanley?s acquisition, and is, as far as we know, unique. 12 bevel edge chisels, from 1/8" to 2", 11" long with ash handles, held by spring clips in original wooden box with two labels identifying it as set No. 71. The box has some wear but the chisels are close to perfect. The last time we sold this set it brought $13,750; we're estimating it a little lower to be conservative but it deserves to break that record. Condition: Fine, Estimate: 6000-10000 B64-300 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/12614/b64-300 B64-300. SLICK. D. Hagen. 3" blade. Blade is 8" long and probably sharpened a few times, 17" overall with socket handle with striking ring. Three generations of Hagens made edge tools in Mt. Ebo, PA, including two Davises (father and son). From the collection of Hank Allen.

Besides the 5-1/2" blade, the back side has a 7" second cutting surface. We're guessing it may have been used in sugar cane fields or something similar. 7-1/2" original handle. Overall light pitting. From the collection of Hank Allen. Condition: Good, Estimate: 50-100
