I’m always willing to share what knowledge I have. I’m in the shop from 10am to 5pm EST…so,  feel free to call. 

I do ship internationally, so please contact me about overseas shipping rates....

call or E-mail for availability of tools...they do tend to go pretty quick, first come first served...if you call, please give me a few moments to get to a phone...this place is pretty big..

PATTERNMAKER'S CHEST OF GOUGES..

 the scraper project for TJ Mahaffey:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tools for woodworkers who don’t want to do metalwork. All are tuned and fettled for use: soles are flat, wood is cleaned and waxed, all mechanicals have been tested and lubricated, sides and bed are generally waxed to retard rust and in short…these tools work. No surprises; all castings solid with no cracks, chips, defects. All blades flattened on the back and a solid bevel established…you can use it out of the box but I do recommend giving the bevel a final polish…after all, sharpening is the most important “tool” in your box. . These are tools I would be proud to own...

 

……I forgot to mention that I found something for myself at the last LFOD…a new scraper….and you know I’m a sucker for those….it’s a Stanley No. 12 style but with a few minor differences…marketed by, of all people, Sears as their Fulton line.  Fulton No. 520 but likely made by Stanley.  Now, I wouldn’t touch a Fulton plane for love or money but a scraper is a whole different matter. I’ve never seen a Fulton scraper being sold anywhere…Google it, you’ll get nowhere. Big differences from the Stanley #12 are the simple hardwood handle (no rosewood) and the blade capture has a rectangular slot in the front…marked Fulton blade also…OK…doesn’t mean much to some….PICTURE   PICTURE   PICTURE  

 

And up next for show & tell:

 This is a whole different animal…thanks to Stu from the Tool Exchange, I received this in the mail the other day….he picked it up for me from Pete Niederberger on his way back to Australia…(no link for Pete but : PO box 887 Larkspur CA 94977)….no maker’s marks but appears to be a British maker…only 6” long with a 2 7/8th” wide blade…I’ve got nothing to compare this to in my own collection….just beautiful…a tip ‘o the hat to both Pete & Stu…Thanks, guys!!         PICTURE   PICTURE   PICTURE   PICTURE

 

 

 

I'm always doing some maintenance on the picture files ...if a link doesn't work please let me know...thanks  Walt

Remember, I'm away from an internet connection on the weekends...not much access out in a field somewhere on the edge of nowhere...

 

 

It’s the end of an era in Connecticut flea markets…Jim Sileo has passed…he will be missed. The first “collectable” tool I bought, I got from Jimmy, long before I knew that there were collectable tools…that’s gotta go back over 40 years and Jimmy was selling stuff for over 20 years before that. If you went to any fleas in the state, more than likely you saw Jim and not just for tools. He seemed to have his fingers in nearly anything you could turn over for a few dollars. I was lucky enough to be able to comb through his storage units a few years back before his health started to fail. I used to help him set up at a local market so I got to help pack the truck (oh yeah-highlight of my day!). He had a brusque sales manner that turned some people off at first but when you got to know him he was a pussycat. I remember one of the first times I dealt with him, getting into an argument over prices…he was giving me a price on a box lot and I wanted only a few things from the box….no deal! All or nothing…I missed out on that but over the ensuing years more than made up for it. If you had a chance to sit with him for a while you found that he had a wealth of stories…a lot I can’t repeat in mixed company and a lot more that would be incriminating in a court of law. He lived in Derby and the one story that I never forgot was one about a run he made to a local factory to purchase their office furniture. It was a local factory that was closing and at the time Jim was selling used furniture in a storefront in town. He gets a call from the office manager to come look at the office stuff so he hustles down to the......wait for it.....the James Swan factory to check it out. As he told it, the back loading dock was filled with 55 gallon drums of scrap metal….you know, scrap metal like chisels, drawknives, brace bits…..all on its way to a local scrapyard. No, he didn’t end up with any of it…I cried....so it goes…’bye, Jim….it was an honor, a privilege and a blast knowing you....

The backs are made of cold rolled steel, corrugated to a 1/4 inch in depth to 1/2 inch in width, thus allowing perfect clearance for sawdust.

I don’t mean to push hard (I’m a pretty easy going guy) but I’d like to get any sales completed before Wednesday this week…I’m going into hospital on Friday the 30th and I’d like to get everything shipped on Thursday…I’ll be in-patient for 5 days (if all goes well) and recuperation at home for 3 to 6 weeks…stomach cancer operation plus, as a bonus, they’re going to take care of a bellybutton hernia I’ve developed…hey, as long as they’re there; they may as well do it all! I’ll be going crazy after 3 days at home…as soon as I can handle the stairs, I’ll be back in the shop…meanwhile; I’ll be checking my emails and hopefully posting on Woodnet….if I can figure out how my wife’s I-pad works…..hey, gang…no worries-I got this knocked….

I am…even though it’s going to be cut short in a few weeks…surgery soon…but even though I’m not up to 100%, I’m still able to make my way around a market and still manage to find some excellent tools that deserve another life…I hope to God you guys are using these things…I’d hate to think of them languishing on a shelf after all the work I’ve put into scrounging them up. I’m still having fun though and will continue to do so as long as I can. I have one more weekend to go before I go “under the knife” maybe I can give my surgeon a crash course in sharpening!...anyway, enough of my rambling…you guys want to see some tools….so here goes!

Fancy stuff

Sargent No. 1507  ¾” “Ladybug” rabbet plane…IOB-In Original Box…box seam split and missing part of one side…but none of that matters because it did it’s job…the plane itself is as close to unused as they come…nickel at 99.9%, full length blade with factory grind on the bevel…sole has no marks whatsoever beyond the tooling marks from the factory…According to David E. Heckel in his book, SARGENT PLANES (Page 65) "The series of rabbet planes (#1506 through #1509-1/2) are some of the scarcest planes produced by Sargent." Ain’t that the truth! This is Sargent's (or anyone’s) most unique design, the Page patent adjustable bull-nose, rabbet plane. There is nothing like this from any other manufacturer at any time, in any country. AKA the "Ladybug" because of its unusual shape (reminds me more of a tick…but that would not have been a good marketing approach)… Sargent made these in several widths and offered each with or without fence and depth stop. The #1507 did not come with either so this one is complete in the box. These planes are very rare (first one of these I’ve found in my 62 years) and when found generally have little if any nickel plating left because of an inferior electroplating process that Sargent used beginning in 1909; depositing a thinner layer of nickel that tended to wear quickly. IMHO, this one’s in museum quality condition….not cheap; but then anything this nice never is…one of a kind…$1300   PICTURE  PICTURE  PICTURE
