Millers Falls. Patented in 1882 by David Rogers of Greenfield, MA, and marketed first by Langdon Bros. and then by MF after it acquired Langdon, this beast is generally regarded as the best combination shooting board and miter cutter ever made. Its bulk makes it very stable, the double-cutter plane cuts in either direction, and the swinging fence can either be used at preset angles or adjusted for individual angles. This is the smallest size, with 2" wide skewed cutters. All correct parts, original dark green japanning is worn. Good+ 800-1400 **All bids must be placed by end of day Friday, October 30, 2020.

Chaplin Patent. O. R. Chaplin's first patent, manufactured by Tower & Lyon, non-adjustable throat, smooth sole, iron tote and knob. The plane in PTAMPIA II, Figure 244, in the 18" jointer length. Unmarked but unmistakable. Japanning retouched, nickel plated lever cap has some light corrosion. Good+ 125-250 **All bids must be placed by end of day Friday, October 30, 2020.

C.E. Jennings No. 305. Most of the planes that feature William Steers' patented soles with inlaid rosewood strips were manufactured by Brattleboro Tool Co. and also featured his patented cutter adjustment. However, in the 1890s Jennings briefly produced a full line of planes with Steers type soles but Bailey pattern frogs and cutter adjustments, which are far less common than the Brattleboro planes. See PTAMPIA II, pages 144-45. This one has a Stanley cutter, and very good rosewood strips, but there's a 1/2" chip in the right cheek.

Unmarked but closely resembles Figure 6 in PTAMPIA II except that in lieu of a front knob it has a bun typical of British infills. 20" long, closed tote with top horn smoothed over, 2-1/4" Providence Tool Co. cutter, repainted bed.

Lee Patent. Cast iron version of Joseph Lee's iconic stop chamfer plane. Lee was constantly fiddling with the design and it sometimes seems that no two are alike; this one has a rotating cutter clamp that is closer to the original patent than the church-window design found on some later planes. It has a brass plate in front, and arms with decorative acorn finials. Lee's name and patent date and number are cast into the body but not marked with manufacturer Thurston, all of which leads us to believe its an earlier model. Japanning worn with slight traces of gold pinstriping, good wood on tote, cutter may be a replacement. From the Bud Steere collection.

Steers No. 303. The very rare adjustable version of William Steers' patented bench planes with rosewood inserts in the sole to reduce friction. Proper marked cutter, wood and metal near perfect, missing (as often) the set screw in the lever cap. Rosewood inserts fine.

Steers Patent. William Steers is, of course, best known for inserting rosewood strips in plane soles to reduce friction, but he also patented a cutter adjustment mechanism, and the Brattleboro Tool Co. marketed a full line of these planes, this is the No. 407. Actually rarer than the composite sole planes if not as pretty. Japanning 80%, tote has end rounded over and reglued split. Cutter unmarked but proper.

James Silcock Patent. The unmistakable pattern of James Silcock's plane, the earliest patented metal plow, but it has lost its metal plaque. Cast iron with beech tote and fence, all original, carefully cleaned, some light pitting on iron, one original cutter. Good+ 800-1500 **All bids must be placed by end of day Friday, October 30, 2020.

This thing looks manufactured but we've never seen it and it isn't marked. It's 7-1/2" long with a rabbet mouth and two separate adjustment knobs, one for the cap iron which is also held by a brass spring strip. A weird design. Hang hole near the heel.

Metallic Plane Co. Based on Nelson Palmer's 1867 patent, rather than the more familiar Palmer & Storke patent, this design featured three separate adjusting levers plus an adjustable mouth. 15" corrugated sole, proper original cutter with corrugations to provide a grip for the cap screw, beech tote has largish chip but wood and metal otherwise near fine.

Sandusky Scissor Arm. Patented by Ellis Morris of Canton, Ohio, in 1871, and manufactured by Sandusky, unmarked but unmistakable. This is the version with the wider throat with thumbscrew cutter clamp and the separate throat for a nicker. There's an original label pasted to the sole which is no place for a label if you want it to last; it's about 50% legible. Beech tote and wedge have normal wear but no damage, japanning about 80%, surface rust on arms. Unmarked cutter pitted at the edge. From the Bud Steere collection.

Steers No. 305. 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 intact with moderate wear at the toe. Japanning fully intact, microscopic chip from end of tote, proper cutter marked with Steers' patent date.
