Good+ 150-300 b61-628 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/9575/b61-628 b61-628 SET OF CHECKERING TOOLS. That's a guess. A set of 11 tools, that are configured like turning or carving tools, but instead of edges each one has as toothed edge, in different widths and configurations, that would be useful in scribing parallel lines. Possibly for use by a gunsmith? Most of them have "S.W. Card Mfg. Co." cast below the cutting edge. Card was a manufacturer of taps, dies and other cutting tools in Mansfield, Mass, until it was bought out by Union Twist Drill in 1908. Interestingly, some are marked "Winter", which was a competitor formed by employees of Card, although they have identical handles and seem to be part of the same set. All are about 7" long, with stained wooden tang handles, three missing the collar around the tang.

Patented in 1925 by one Benjamin Franklin Haley of West Palm Beach, FL, who described it as a "rabbeting plane"; it has an 8-1/2" long narrow sole of cast aluminum, with knobs at both ends, and a router cutter and clamp that were pretty obviously swiped from a No. 71. It has "B.F. Haley" and "Pat. Feb. 9, 25" cast into the body, which is not the date the patent was filed or granted (it was a Monday). The only one we've ever seen, not listed in PTAMPIA, and it has a hand-made, prototype look to it. Not the first, or the last, wacky idea to come out of Florida, but we're pretty sure you'll have the only one. From the collection of Cliff Sapienza. Good+ 200-400
