There's an old split in the heel that's been repaired by a vertical bolt through the body, damage to the front thumbscrew. No cutter. Wedge may be a replacement but if so they did a good job.

Chardoillet Patent. 1850s French patent with variable pitch cutter adjustment; 23-1/2" sole, some inactive worm in tote, knob may be well done replacement, missing its cutter. One of the rarest and most collectible of the early metal planes. Good+ 3000-6000 B58-561 2021-04-18T12:21:00+01:00 2021-04-18T12:21:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/7138/b58-561 B58-561 TRANSITIONAL JACK PLANE. Birmingham Plane Co. The faucet-handle style cutter adjustment was patented by Oliver Hayworth of Tarkio, MO, in 1893, and was yet another failed attempt to compete with the Bailey/Stanley juggernaut. This one is in super clean condition with 15" sole and original marked 2" cutter. The cutter has a little surface oxidation, but the wood is like new and the japanning is 98% and not repainted. Although marked by Birmingham, these were actually manufactured (briefly) by the Derby Plane Co., a successor to Birmingham. A hard plane to find. Fine 150-250 B58-560 2021-04-18T12:22:00+01:00 2021-04-18T12:22:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/7137/b58-560 B58-560 CORRUGATED SOLE BENCH PLANE. Birdsill Holly Patent. Based on Holly's 1852 patent. It's the design shown in Figures 39a of PTAMPIA I but with a knurled cap screw; 8" sole and 2" Moulson Bros. cutter. Overall wear and light surface rust but no damage; good original maple tote. From the Bud Steere collection. Good+ 600-900 B58-559 2021-04-18T12:23:00+01:00 2021-04-18T12:23:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/7136/b58-559 B58-559 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. Very clean, gold paint 80%, rosewood tote and fence fine, crisp casting on the screw heads. No cutters. One of the truly iconic patented plow planes. Fine 1500-3000 B58-558 2021-04-18T12:24:00+01:00 2021-04-18T12:24:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/7135/b58-558 B58-558 PATENTED BENCH PLANE. Louis Rodier. Affectionately known as the "squiggly plane." Rodier's patent was for his adjustment mechanism, intended to simultaneously regulate the set of the cutter and the width of the mouth, but his planes are best known for their corrugated sides and the serpentine grooves cast into the sole. This one has a 9" sole , and a 2-1/8" James Cam cutter. There's a big chip from the end of the tote and the grooves in the sole are worn flat at the heel. The plane as a whole is grubby with some surface corrosion, but a very rare plane that would repay careful cleaning. Good 500-800 B58-557 2021-04-18T12:25:00+01:00 2021-04-18T12:25:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/7134/b58-557 B58-557 BLOCK PLANE. Boston Metallic Plane Co. The plane shown on page 153 of PTAMPIA I, based on Cyrus Hardy's 1873 patent for the slide-in palm rest. 7" long x 1-7/8" with 1-9/16" iron with no visible mark. Rosewood wedge is unmarked and we can't swear it's original, but if it's a replacement it's a good one. Japanning 50%. Good+ 150-250 B58-556 2021-04-18T12:26:00+01:00 2021-04-18T12:26:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/7133/b58-556 B58-556 IRON BENCH PLANE. Birmingham Plane Co. 9" version of the plane based on George Mosher's patent and manufactured by Birmingham. Unmarked as all are, with the wraparound version of the cutter clamp (PTAMPIA I figure 233a). Top of frog broken off, overall surface corrosion and light pitting, can't tell if there's a mark on the cutter. Good- 80-150 B58-555 2021-04-18T12:27:00+01:00 2021-04-18T12:27:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/7132/b58-555 B58-555 IRON PLOW PLANE. Phillips Patent. Earliest version with rosewood trim and unmarked skate (left example in plate 16 of PTAMPIA I). Top horn of tote is shorter than usual but if it was altered it was well done. Japanning 50%, one original cutter. Good+ 250-450 B58-554 2021-04-18T12:28:00+01:00 2021-04-18T12:28:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/7131/b58-554 B58-554 SMOOTHING PLANE. 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. 403. Actually rarer than the composite sole planes if not as pretty. Original cutter marked with the patent date for the composite soles, wood fine, metal oxidized but undamaged. There's a support rod between the frog and the base of the tote that is clearly original but isn't shown in any of the photos in PTAMPIA. Good+ 200-400 B58-553 2021-04-18T12:29:00+01:00 2021-04-18T12:29:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/7130/b58-553 B58-553 SMOOTHING, RABBET & FILLETSTER PLANE. Bailey Victor No. 11. One of the rarest and hardest to find of Bailey's Victor line. Almost all examples are missing their uniquely designed depth stop and fence; this one has the depth stop but it's a copy. It also has the screw for the fence, but it's also suspicious. The body itself is in good condition with earlier type of cap screw; japanning 50%. Good 250-450 B58-552 2021-04-18T12:30:00+01:00 2021-04-18T12:30:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/7129/b58-552 B58-552 EXPERIMENTAL JACK PLANE. A handful of these planes, including one wood-bodied, have turned up near the Massachusetts-Rhode Island border. They're unmarked, and may be an experimental model that never went into production. The blade adjustment is a cast brass pivoting assembly that engages a hole in the cap iron. 14-3/4" sole, 2-1/2" Buck Bros. cutter, large turned maple knob, rosewood tote with a well reglued split and front portion sheared. The actual plane pictured in PTAMPIA II, Figure 128. From the Bud Steere collection.

Patented in 1921 by Henry Loeschner of Fredericktown, MO, and features a central compartment that can be popped out of the stock and used separately as a gravity inclinometer. In addition to the hanging indicator, some (but not all) of these levels have four level vials glued inside the central compartment, but not part of this example. 24" long with a scaled ruler on the top rail. The wood has been lacquered. Good+ 500-1000
