One of only two ebony Ohio center wheels know to exist. The fence and center wheel are dark rosewood, everything else is ebony. Located in Pennsylvania and lovingly restored by Bob Baker, it was the centerpiece of Don Rosebrook's legendary collection and the plane shown on pages 250-51 of Rosebrook and Fisher. Mark is a little light, but otherwise perfect. The word "breathtaking" is overused, but applies here.

Threads near perfect, a few minor dings but overall creamy and nice, one of the most attractive boxwood plows we've seen. From the collection of John Sindelar.

Has a "J.N" mark on the toe under a crown; we couldn?t find it in Goodman but it has an English look and a Ward iron. Iron wear plate on skate, arms locked with brass wingnuts, full length depth stop with two iron screws. Well made and different.

Fruitwood plow with boxwood nuts, Moulson Bros. cutter. A mark of this St. Louis hardware dealer, three stars. A couple of chips, most notably from the end of the tote, but otherwise very clean. From the collection of John Sindelar. Good+ 100-200 B59-604 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/8014/b59-604 B59-604 UNHANDLED PLOW PLANE. Greenfield Tool Co. No. 521. Body, fence and wedge are a very dark rosewood. We're not 100% of the wood used in fence and nuts, but think they are a lighter rosewood. There is some wear to the nuts, and a chip in the front of the fence, but overall very clean and attractive. Good+ 300-600 B59-603 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/8013/b59-603 B59-603 SPLIT IVORY NUT PLOW PLANE. D.R. Barton/Greenfield Tool Co. Marked by Barton (E mark) but made by Greenfield and marked No. 537 on the toe. Body, fence and wedge are rosewood with a very light, attractive grain, boxwood arms and locking nuts, sandwich rosewood and ivory outer nuts, ivory tips. There is some wear to the fence; a tight crack that runs the length and some chips on the underside, but otherwise immaculate with complete threads, ivory has some checks but complete. An absolutely stunning plane, shown in pages 12-13 of Rosebrook and Fisher. Fine 2000-4000 B59-602 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/8012/b59-602 B59-602 IVORY TIPPED PLOW PLANE. Casey, Kitchel & Co. Macassar ebony throughout, including arms and nuts, with a very striking grain, except for Casey, Kitchel's characteristic boxwood washers under the outer nuts. Four ivory tips, very clear with only a couple of tight checks. C mark faint but legible, Mathieson cutter. The grain of the ebony makes this a very attractive plane. From the collection of Don Rosebrook. Fine 3000-6000 B59-408 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/7818/b59-408 B59-408 PLOW PLANE WITH IVORY INLAY. Greenfield Tool Co. No. 561. Ebony body and fence, boxwood nuts, arms and wedge. There's a small chip from the front edge of the fence, a couple of tiny chips from the threads, but the wood is otherwise near perfect and stunning. An ivory diamond has been carefully inlaid into the top of the tote. Wm. Butcher cutter. No one really knows why nineteenth century cabinetmakers chose the plow plane to lavish exotic woods and decoration on, but this is an absolutely breathtaking example. The centerpiece of any plow plane collection. From the collection of John Sindelar. Fine 3000-6000 B59-407 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/7817/b59-407 B59-407 EUROPEAN PLOW PLANE. Slide arm plow with ram's horn wingnuts. 10" long, small amount of decorative carving, full length depth stop controlled by two wingnuts. Significant wear and some inactive worm. From the collection of John Sindelar. Good 100-200 B59-406 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/7816/b59-406 B59-406 SCREW-ARM PLOW PLANE. German Patent. Typical European style plow with the internal nuts on the fence, but it also has a very elaborate cutter holding and adjusting mechanism, which is marked "D.R.G.M No. 147505." DRGM stands for Deutsches Reich Gebrauchsmuster (German Reich Registered Design) and it appears that this particular design was patented in 1901 and marketed by Esslinger & Abt of Laupheim, Germany. Some mild wear to the wood but the cutter holding mechanism is nice and clean. Very unusual. From the collection of John Sindelar. Good+ 200-400 B59-405 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/7815/b59-405 B59-405 SCREW-ARM PLOW PLANE. User Made. Stained wood body and fence. The arms are iron bolts with the heads inserted through two ball-shaped shoulders on the fence. The outer nuts are turned wood, the inner cast brass. Very unusual cutter depth adjustment and clamping screw. It has a lot of wear, and there's a split along the sole that's been repaired with what looks like a modern screw, but a very ingenious design. From the collection of John Sindelar. Good 150-300 B59-404 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/7814/b59-404 B59-404 ADJUSTABLE PLOW PLANE. E.W. Carpenter. Very rare example of Carpenter's 1838 patent, the first patent for a screw arm plow. Boxwood arms, nuts look like light rosewood. A few chips from the threads and there are holes drilled in the side of the locking nuts, looks like an old user with no concern for future collectors used them to help tighten the fence. Very clear D mark. An indispensable part of the history of the screw arm plow. Good+ 1000-2000 B59-403 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/7813/b59-403 B59-403 BRIDLE PLOW PLANE. Union Factory Prototype. This plane, which resembles a Mathieson-style bridle plow, is marked with Chapin's Union Factory mark. It's the only known plane of this configuration, and was thought by Don Rosebrook to be a prototype. It was one of the prides of Don's legendary collection, and is extraordinarily attractive, with a rosewood body, solid boxwood fence and wedge, and brass-tipped ebony arms. The arms have v-grooves along the bottom which fit into matching grooves in the fence, both also brass-lined, as is the groove in the tote that holds the cutter. The skate has a unique round-nosed pattern, which matches a pattern found in Solon Rust's toolbox. See Rosebrook and Fisher, pages 98-99. A plane that truly deserves the oft-misused term "unique." Fine 10000-20000 B59-402 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/7812/b59-402 B59-402 IVORY NUT PLOW PLANE. Greenfield Tool Co. No. 512. Rosewood body, fence and wedge, boxwood arms, large turned solid ivory inner and outer nuts, nice and clean with some tight checks but no damage. The wedge has wear but the rest of the wood is near perfect. E mark, partly obscured but legible. From the collection of Don Rosebrook. Fine 2000-4000 B59-401 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/7811/b59-401 B59-401 UNHANDLED PLOW PLANE. L. DeForest. Ebony throughout, looks like Macassar ebony with brown streaks, very attractive. Wood near perfect except for some roughness on the toe, which also has four sets of user initials. B mark, W. Butcher cutter. DeForest made planes in Birmingham, CT; his 1860 price list included a solid ivory plow with solid gold nuts; if you ever find one, call us immediately. From the collection of Don Rosebrook. Fine 2000-4000 B59-400 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/7810/b59-400 B59-400 SLIDE ARM PLOW PLANE. User Made. Very unusual and ingenious design. The arms are solid brass rods, held by cylindrical posts mounted on top of the fence. Since the rods aren't threaded, the maker inserted set screws into the outer nuts to lock them; turns out that wasn't a great idea as both have split. Unusually large with at 11-1/2" long, with an elaborate brass depth stop. Apart from the splits caused by the set screw, it's nice and clean, noting a screw inserted in the side that looks like it was intended to fix a split (although the split isn't obvious). Overall, an intriguing and attractive plow, a testament to some forgotten user's ingenuity. From the collection of John Sindelar. Good+ 300-600 B59-399 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/7809/b59-399 B59-399 IVORY TIPPED PLOW PLANE. Casey, Kitchel & Co. Rosewood throughout with four turned ivory tips, intact with minor checking, the inner nuts and shoulder have some wear and are lighter, almost as if they were stained, but the grain looks right. D mark. Barton was primarily an edge tool maker and a lot of planes marked by Barton were actually made by someone else, but they did make some planes and this is one of them. Wood very clean, noting the wear on the inner nuts, only a couple of small thread chips. Good+ 500-1000 B59-208 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/7618/b59-208 B59-208 SCREW-ARM PLOW PLANE. Buenos Aires Maker. European style plow with brass arms, stamped on toe "Mirallis Cabot Buenos Aires." Wood is a heavy dense tropical wood, possibly grenadilla or African blackwood. The tote has split and been repaired and there is a piece of lighter wood inset into the sole, otherwise a very attractive and uncommon plow. Good+ 200-400 B59-207 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/7617/b59-207 B59-207 SCREW-ARM PLOW PLANE. TD & Co. An Ohio Tool Co. No. 108 marked by Cincinnati hardware dealer Tyler Davidson & Co. (B mark). Ebony body, rosewood arms and nuts. Original OTC cutter. There's a 1/2" chip from the upper left corner of the body, just behind the toe, threads are worn but not chipped, overall decent shape. Good+ 200-400 B59-206 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/7616/b59-206 B59-206 IVORY TIPPED PLOW PLANE. D.P. Sanborn. Ebony body, boxed fence, and outer nuts; boxwood arms and inner nuts, rosewood wedge. Silver mounted. Two ivory tips with some tight checks but no damage. Sanborn's E mark (three stars); Providence Tool Co. cutter. There's a row of small nail holes along the top of the boxing where it is revealed by the cutout in the fence that is clearly intentional but it isn't clear what the purpose was. Apart from that, it is nearly perfect and clearly had little use. The plane shown on pages 76-77 of Rosebrook and Fisher. From the collection of Don Rosebrook. Fine 1500-2500 B59-205 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/7615/b59-205 B59-205 SCREW-ARM PLOW PLANE. Hynson & Gormly. Rosewood body with boxwood arms, nuts, fence and wedge. The nuts don't exactly match; Hynson & Gormly worked in Nashville in the 1830s and this may reflect the fact that they were hand turned. This mark doesn't exactly match any of them recorded in AWP, which rate four stars. Very clean. Good+ 150-250 B59-204 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 1970-01-01T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/7614/b59-204 B59-204 SCREW-ARM PLOW PLANE. J. Kellogg. Rosewood body and boxed rosewood fence, boxwood arms, nuts and wedge. Moulson Bros. cutter, B mark. There's an unfortunate chip from the end of the tote and a couple of user names neatly stamped on the toe, otherwise near perfect. Good+ 175-350
