In original pasteboard box with dividers but missing the lid. From the collection of Cecil Holmes. Fine 800-1500 B60-540 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/8730/b60-540 B60-540 ADJUSTABLE BEVELING PLANE. M.B. Tidey. 2-1/4" wide sole with skewed cutter, with an adjustable fence that will cut bevels and chamfers at different angles. Tidey's A "Ithaca" mark. Marcus Tidey was, of course, one of the inventors, and manufacturer, of the very rare patent double beveling plane. This looks like a single-fence version, that we've never seen. There were several patents for adjustable beveling fences that could be attached to a plane, but this one looks original to the plane. Something of a mystery plane. From the collection of John Sindelar. Fine 500-1000 B60-539 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/8729/b60-539 B60-539 JOINTER PLANE. Gage Tool Co. 22" wood bottom plane that predates the acquisition by Stanley. The body has some wear but retains most of its original finish, no serious damage. Tote has been skillfully reglued. From the collection of Carl Bopp. Good 100-200 B60-538 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/8728/b60-538 B60-538 FLEXIBLE SOLE PLANE. Evans Patent. Often mistaken for the later and more common Stanley No. 13, this plane was patented by George Evans of Maine in 1862 and manufactured by R.H. Mitchell. According to Roger Smith, Stanley bought out Mitchell but never manufactured the plane; possibly they were just doing it to eliminate a competitor to the No. 13. This is the variation without the brass plate soldered to the side; Wm. Butcher cutter, japanning worn, one chip from the body. From the collection of Dennis Fisher. Good 100-200 B60-537 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/8727/b60-537 B60-537 TRANSITIONAL JACK PLANE. Union Tool No. 26.

Closely resembles the first core box patent, received by John Robinson of Matteawan, NY, in 1855 (PTAMPIA I, Plate 22), but unmarked so could also have been made by a patternmaker. 8-1/2" long, unmarked cutter, tote looks like maple. In near mint condition. Fine 100-200 B60-535 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/8725/b60-535 B60-535 PLOW PLANE. Phillips Patent. Mayo's improvement to Phillips' original design. Has some remnants of the distinctive red and gold pinstriping. Very minor chipping to edge of tote. Has the Boston Tool Co. mark on the skate, faint but legible. One original double-ended cutter. Good 250-500 B60-534 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/8724/b60-534 B60-534 MATCH PLANE. Mathieson & Sons. Uncommon patented plane with sliding adjustable fence to cut tongues and grooves on boards of different widths. Two separate cutters and two independent nicker irons, independently wedged. Threaded arms set the width between the bodies. Others we've seen are marked "patent applied for," this one is marked "warranted." Wood and metal near perfect with a few scrapes, possibly refinished. User stamp on toe. A very uncommon British patent. Fine 200-400 B60-533 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/8723/b60-533 B60-533 IRON T-RABBET PLANE. Birmingham Plane Co. 6", nonadjustable version of the "batwing" design patented by George Mosher and manufactured by Birmingham. PTAMPIA I figure 233a. Japanning 80%. Good+ 200-400 B60-532 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/8722/b60-532 B60-532 FLEXIBLE SOLE PLANE. Cast brass body with the two halves of the flexible sole each adjusted separately by a bar that slides through the body and is held in place with a locking screw, similar to a No. 13. Sole is 7-1/2" long. Unsigned cutter that looks like it was cut down from a larger one. The only marking is a nine digit number in the format of a social security number with a "42" below. We don't know if it was intended as a prototype or just a patternmaker's tool, but it's well made and we can pretty much guarantee you'll have the only one. Fine 200-400 B60-531 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/8721/b60-531 B60-531 BLOCK PLANE. Gage Tool Co. The Gage Tool Co. of Vineland, NJ, is best known for its cutter adjustment mechanism that was manufactured by Stanley after it purchased the company, but John Gage also patented an adjustable block plane that was much less successful. This is the low angle version of the plane shown in PTAMPIA I, Figure 137. According to the etching on the sole, it was made by John Gage himself in July 1913 by and someone else whose name we can't read; that was the year of the patent so it may have been a prototype. Properly marked cutter; there are two cuts at the side of the mouth that look intentional. A very rare example, from the collection of Carl Bopp. Fine 200-400 B60-530 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/8720/b60-530 B60-530 BEADING PLANE. Gocher Patent. Patented 4/10/77 by George Gocher of Johnstown, PA. See PTAMPIA I, figure 158. A very rare patented plane in near mint condition, owner initials scratched in side and slight loss of japanning on bed.

Birmingham Plane Co. 8", nonadjustable version of the "batwing" design patented by George Mosher and manufactured by Birmingham. PTAMPIA I figure 233a. Japanning 80%. Good+ 200-400 B60-528 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/8718/b60-528 B60-528 FORE PLANE. Metallic Plane Co. 18" long, non-adjustable throat, based on Elliot Storke's 1875 patent for the cutter adjustment which was modified in production to include the distinctive faucet-handle design. Proper Metallic Plane cutter, but with the mark obscured by light pitting. Japanning may be repainted, minimal rust, good rosewood tote and knob. Decent example of a very rare plane. Good 80-150 B60-346 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/8536/b60-346 B60-346 POCKET BLOCK PLANE. L. Bailey Victor No. 12. Good clean example of Bailey's "pocket" block plane, japanning mostly gone on sides but good on bed, casting on adjusting knobs worn but still clear. From the collection of Cecil Holmes. Good+ 250-500 B60-345 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/8535/b60-345 B60-345 MILLER'S PATENT PLANE. Type 1 Stanley No. 41. All the features of a Type 1 hooknose except 1B rods with plain ends. Tote has a crack at the lower rivet and a small chip from the end, japanning possibly retouched but very well done. From the collection of Cecil Holmes. Good+ 1800-3600 B60-344 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/8534/b60-344 B60-344 BLOCK PLANE. Bailey Tool Co. Type "B." Rare version with "Bailey Tool Comp" cast in the sole to serve as corrugations. One of the holy grails of tool collecting. Original marked battleaxe cutter, light surface rust, japanning 50%, original knob.Tiny crack in the corner of the mouth. From the collection of Cecil Holmes. Good+ 1500-3000 B60-343 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/8533/b60-343 B60-343 IRON PLOW PLANE. The Boss. In the final version of his improved version of the Phillips patent plow, Matthias Mayo replaced the original pinstriping with a coat of gold paint, cast the four letters of his name into the heads of the locking screws, and cast "The Boss Plane" in the side. Gold paint 60%, rosewood tote has some very small chips, fence fine, good casting on the screw heads. One original cutter. One of the truly iconic patented plow planes. Good+ 1200-2400 B60-342 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/8532/b60-342 B60-342 JACK PLANE. Thomas Worrall Patent. Based on Worrall's 1857 patent, similar to Figure 27a on page 29 of PTAMPIA I except 14" long. Nothing cast into the cutter holder, looks like there might be a faint mark on toe. Multiform Plane Co. mark on cutter. Overall grime and normal wear, but a complete example of a very rare early patented plane. Good 120-240 B60-341 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/8531/b60-341 B60-341 FILLETSTER PLANE. James Silcock Patent. The unmistakable pattern of James Silcock's plane, but it has lost its metal plaque. The plough form is rare, but the filletster is far rarer. Cast iron with beech tote and fence, all original, carefully cleaned, some light pitting on iron, one original cutter.From the collection of Carl Bopp. Good+ 1000-2000 B60-340 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/8530/b60-340 B60-340 FILLETSTER PLANE. The body is marked "Ohio Tool Co." but it doesn't look like anything by OTC we've ever seen. A complex sliding fence with brass clamps and handle and full length adjustable depth stop. It's very well made and has a European look but could have been made by a talented user. From the collection of John Sindelar. Fine 200-400 B60-339 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/8529/b60-339 B60-339 PATENTED SMOOTHING PLANE. Metallic Plane Co. Based on Nelson Palmer's 1867 patent, rather than the more familiar Palmer & Storke patent, this very complex design featured three separate adjusting levers plus an adjustable mouth. 9" corrugated sole with the patent date cast behind the tote and "Metallic Plane Co. Auburn NY" at the toe. Unfortunately the top of the tote is sheered off (and there's a crack at the base), but the rest is a nice example one of the most gizmoish of the failed patents. "Newbould Cast Steel" cast into cutter. From the collection of Cecil Holmes. Good 120-240 B60-338 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/8528/b60-338 B60-338 METAL PLOW PLANE. Phillips Patent with Cutters. Most closely resembles the third version of the Phillips patent as shown in Plate 16 of PTAMPIA I (right), marked with Babson & Repellier's name and address, along with the patent date, on the skate, but without the C. C. Harlow mark. The arm doesn't have the v-slot in the top and the brass locking screw matches the others. Tote and skate trim are beech but well weathered so they look like rosewood, tote horn is shorter than usual but doesn't appear damaged. Includes six original cutters, plus one that isn't original. Japanning about 80%.Very nice example of one of the iconic patent metal plows. Fine 500-1000 B60-337 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/8527/b60-337 B60-337 IRON PLOW PLANE. Metallic Plane Co. The plane shown in PTAMPIA I, Figure 215, with diamond pattern fence. Rosewood tote, metal and japanning all near mint. "Metallic Plane Company Auburn NY" stamped on skate. Includes a set of eight original cutters in a later sliding lid box. From the collection of Don Rosebrook. Fine 900-1800
