Preston with the Lynx mark, 9". Preston was a Sheffield factor and dealer who didn't make his own tools. The other is by William Fletcher, marked "Fletcher London" which dates it to the 1870s, 14". Both with split nuts and lamb's-tongue handles, blades are clean (Fletcher has broken corner), handles good with intact horns. Good+ 80-150 B58-403 2021-04-18T14:59:00+01:00 2021-04-18T14:59:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/6940/b58-403 B58-403 LOT OF TWO STEEL BACKSAWS. One by I. Sorby, 8", with Punch trademark, closed handle. The other one isn't marked on the back, but has a stamp on the reverse side of the blade that's too faint to read and the word "York" (could be either English or New York), London pattern handle, 8-1/2". Good+ 80-150 B58-402 2021-04-18T15:00:00+01:00 2021-04-18T15:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/6939/b58-402 B58-402 HANDSAW. Disston D-23. 26", 8 tpi, blade has a few spots of surface rust but etch is immaculate, handle very clean. Fine 50-100 B58-401 2021-04-18T15:01:00+01:00 2021-04-18T15:01:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/6938/b58-401 B58-401 LONDON HANDSAW. Hill Late Howell. 26", nib, 6 tpi rip, split nuts. Lamb's-tongue applewood handle. Hill started his career as foreman for J. Howell, hence his "Hill Late Howell" mark. We've seen his mark on several backsaws but it is unusual to find a handsaw. Blade and handle both very clean and undamaged, mark very clear. Fine 100-200 B58-400 2021-04-18T15:02:00+01:00 2021-04-18T15:02:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/6937/b58-400 B58-400 PANEL SAW. Disston D-8. Disston's legendary skewback design, invented by Henry himself in 1874 and the first Disston saw to have the "D-" designation. This one is 24", 10 tpi crosscut, is late enough to have a beech rather than applewood handle, and doesn't look like it ever touched wood. Fine 50-100 B58-399 2021-04-18T15:03:00+01:00 2021-04-18T15:03:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/6936/b58-399 B58-399 HANDSAW. Robert Sorby. 28", 4 tpi rip. The blade has a good nib and light surface pitting, good clear mark that features Sorby's Kangaroo mark surrounded by three crowns, circa 1870. Lamb's-tongue handle with four split nuts, each with an original Sorby medallion, some slight chipping on the horns but overall clean. Good+ 80-150 B58-398 2021-04-18T15:04:00+01:00 2021-04-18T15:04:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/6935/b58-398 B58-398 HANDSAW. J. Taylor & Sons. Unusual configuration with a 13" blade that curves down at the handle, possibly a panel or compass saw, shaped a little like a pruning saw but ground crosscut. The lamb's-tongue handle has no horns and no sign that it ever had. The blade is marked with Taylor's "Advance" trademark in the form of a lamb with a halo and banner, and the handle has a brass plate, with the same Advance mark, held by four split nuts. J. Taylor & Son was a predecessor to Taylor Brothers, a major Sheffield sawmaker beginning in the 1840s. Good+ 150-250 B58-397 2021-04-18T15:05:00+01:00 2021-04-18T15:05:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/6934/b58-397 B58-397 HANDSAW. Disston D-95 "Masterpiece.". The D-95 used a handle made of two pieces of Tenite, a thermoplastic invented by George Eastman (the Kodak guy) in 1929, in contrasting colors, and was an attempt by Disston to prove that plastic handles didn't have to look cheap. They were offered from 1935 through 1950 in three color schemes, this one is tan and brown. 26", 8 tpi crosscut. Blade is pretty clean with etch light but legible; handle has a few scratches and a paint splotch but no damage, medallion is a little proud of the handle. Good+ 50-100 B58-396 2021-04-18T15:06:00+01:00 2021-04-18T15:06:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/6933/b58-396 B58-396 BRASS BACKSAW. Drabble & Sanderson. 8" blade, London style handle, two split nuts. Top horn of the handle comes to a point which may be original rather than old repair, handle otherwise very clean, good blade. Good+ 60-120 B58-150 2021-04-18T19:12:00+01:00 2021-04-18T19:12:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/6642/b58-150 B58-150 BRASS BACKSAW. R. Groves & Sons. 16" blade, lamb's-tongue handle, three split nuts with no medallion (two with the USE Crown mark, also on the back, and one marked "Established 1770), blade very clean, handle has a couple of chips but no real damage. Brass has been polished. Good+ 100-200 B58-149 2021-04-18T19:13:00+01:00 2021-04-18T19:13:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/6641/b58-149 B58-149 PATENTED BACKSAW. Disston & Sons No. 14. At first glance, this saw, with its blade held by a metal strap so you can adjust the depth, or flip it over to use teeth on the top, would appear to be the Wuest?s patent as sold by Bishop, but in fact it's the 1914 Smith patent, pretty blatantly ripped off from the Wuest design. One of Disston?s least common saws. 14" blade nice and clean with good etch, handle has wear and glued crack. Good+ 80-150 B58-148 2021-04-18T19:14:00+01:00 2021-04-18T19:14:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/6640/b58-148 B58-148 DEMONSTRATING SAW. Atkins No. 53. A 26" saw with the early form of Atkins' "Perfection" handle with the floral design. The unusual feature is that different parts of the blade have different grinds. The reverse of the blade describes it as a "demonstrating" saw and lists the various types of grind and set. The blade is generally pretty clean, with the etch on the front just legible and the rear more clear. Handle is near fine, with good medallion and four screws, two of them locked with wingnuts. Good+ 100-200 B58-147 2021-04-18T19:15:00+01:00 2021-04-18T19:15:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/6639/b58-147 B58-147 RIP SAW. Henry Disston No. 8. Early saw with clear pre-"& Son" etch, clean 28" blade with nib, 5 tpi, very clean applewood handle with inset 7/8" optimistic eagle medallion and split nuts.

Crownshaw, Chapman & Co. 14" blade, 1880s era stamp on back, lamb's-tongue handle, split nuts. Back is also stamped "Made for J.P. Morris, St. Helens" which has been seen on other saws and may have been a dealer. See Barley, p. 427. Good+ 80-150 B58-145 2021-04-18T19:17:00+01:00 2021-04-18T19:17:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/6637/b58-145 B58-145 STEEL BACKSAW. R. Groves & Sons. 12" blade, lamb's-tongue handle, two split nuts with no medallion, blade has oxidation but no rust, handle has a chip from the top horn and neatly carved user initials.

Good+ 300-600 B58-143 2021-04-18T19:19:00+01:00 2021-04-18T19:19:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/6635/b58-143 B58-143 INFILL SHOULDER PLANE. Holland Improved Pattern. John Holland often didn't sign his planes, but this one is clearly marked on the toe, along with the word "Improved." Has a "rhino horn" which was usually a special order. Gunmetal body with 7-1/2" sweated steel sole. The infill looks like ebony, but the wedge seems too light and may be stained. 1-3/8" Ward & Payne iron is down to its last 1/8". Two major chips from the wood at the toe and one W. Whatley has stamped his name twice. Good 200-400 B58-142 2021-04-18T19:20:00+01:00 2021-04-18T19:20:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/6634/b58-142 B58-142 INFILL BENCH PLANE. Marked only "Nipperson Bros. Norwich" on the bridge, a name we're not familiar with, and otherwise looks user made. Cast gunmetal body with 10-3/4" straight sided sole. Beech infill with open tote and wedge. 1-7/8" Ward & Payne iron. Unusual and well made. Good+ 100-200 B58-141 2021-04-18T19:21:00+01:00 2021-04-18T19:21:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/6633/b58-141 B58-141 INFILL BENCH PLANE. Norris No. 50G.
