Lutz Superdyne. Includes 10 templates, pen and a variety of pen points, scriber to allow the user to duplicate the letters engraved on the templates, and a bottle of ink.

Patented 4/10/49 by Paul Bryant of Chesterfield, MA, one of the oldest and rarest nail pullers. From the collection of Hank Allen.

A very uncommon saw, with a 4-1/4" blade, fine teeth with no set, clamped against a brass hold by an ivory or bone plate that allows for a depth adjustment, with a turned ebony handle, 9" long overall. We've never seen one like it, but guess it may have been used to cut veneer or in marquetry. From the collection of John Sindelar.

Uncommon complete example of the saw filing system marketed by the A.J. Wilkinson hardware co. of Boston. Bolts to a workbench, the saw is clamped in the vise and the file can be moved along it on a slide head. 17" long, kind of grimy but it's all there with a good Wilkinson brass plaque.

Patented by Walter Coe of Providence in 1904 and manufactured by him, used to press gold, silver, etc., into grooves. Looks complete and working; you'll need to supply your own gold.

Two wooden blocks that slide together, 9-3/4" long, ruled along one side. There's a brass knob that locks them in place, and a brass spring loaded vernier adjustment that is absurdly large for its purpose. There is very faded, barely legible, writing in front of the knob that appears to read "Geo Davidson 1875." The consignor's tag says frankly "I don't know what this is", and neither do we. Take it to the next Whatsit session. Good+ 50-100 b61-666 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/9613/b61-666 b61-666 BUILDING TOY. Stanlo No. 2. In 1933, in the depths of the Great Depression when nobody was building, Stanley was desperate for new products, and hit on the idea of producing its own line of toys similar to the Erector Sets that had been introduced in 1913. Thus was born the Stanlo Master Building Set which, according to Stanley propaganda, was an instant hit and saved hundreds of New Britain jobs. Unlike Erector Sets, the Stanlo system didn't require nuts and bolts, but consisted of a series of metal plates in various sizes, shapes and colors with loops along the edges that could be joined together by inserting steel rods (like hinges). There were six increasingly elaborate Stanlo sets, from No. 1 through No. 6, and this is No. 2. It includes a large number of plates and steel rods, as well as several wheels and pulleys and two original instruction books. There is also a partially assembled boat that may have been assembled from this set or another one, but in any case we're including it. The parts are all clean and rust free and the box is worn but intact. Truly for the Stanley collector who has everything, and it actually looks like fun.

The circular logo with the notched rectangle, first introduced in the 1920s. 13-1/2" by 9-3/4", on heavy card stock. This is the double sided version that was designed to be hung (with its original cord), rather than the version designed to be stood on the counter. Very slight wear around the edges.

A set of 25 of Stanley's educational charts describing the proper use of various Stanley tools. Unlike the later version that was printed on heavy cardboard with hanging grommets, these were the original paper versions that needed to be unrolled for use. Each is 18-1/2" by 14". The edges have some wear, but the charts themselves are pristine. Contained in the original mailing tube that indicates that they were originally sold to the Ft. Washington Senior High School on Long Island. Fine 200-400 b61-662 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/9609/b61-662 b61-662 ADVERTISING.

A Stanley Works paper weight, displaying a No. 935 corrugated steel hinge, a rolling BB puzzle featuring the Stanley imp, three Stanley themed matchbooks (two with actual matches, and one unused cover), a No. 7566 tape measure with gold colored case celebrating the 1954 50th anniversary of the Stanley Works, and two cloth shipping bags. Good & better. 100-200 b61-660 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/9607/b61-660 b61-660 MEMORABILIA. Lot of Stanley Jewelry. A gold plated tie clip with a green chip that's probably glass rather than an emerald, a "Stanley 25" pin on a chain, and a gold-filled Cross ball point pin with the black and yellow Stanley logo on its clip, in its original box.

Four old photographs, one of the Stanley Works plant and three of groups of employees; seven badges worn by E. A. Moore while representing Stanley at various conventions and meetings; and two handwritten letters on Stanley letterhead, one from the office of the president to his "Darling Wife" enclosing a check for $500 (check not included).

Stanley Works First Aid Kit. 10-1/4" by 15-1/2" tin green box, with "First Aid Club" and "Stanley Works" painted on the cover along with a Red Cross. The fact that the painting is hand done rather than printed, and the use of "Club", seems to indicate that this was put together by a group of Stanley employees rather than the company itself. It actually contains a number of old bandages and medicines; we wouldn't recommend their use.
