Well spring arrived, at least on the calendar but the weather sure 
didn't get the message.  First weekend at the summer fleas was bone 
chilling cold, followed by an 80 degree Sat, and then the rain and cold 
moved back in.  Sigh.  Pickings haven't been great but some new stuff 
has arrived for your perusal.

PayPal is now accepted and preferred (if you use it) on all items.   On 
items less than $25 (not including shipping) I would appreciate you 
using the Send Money to Family & Friends option so I don't get killed 
with the fees but that is your call. Checks and money orders are still 
welcome, it just seems that 1st Class letters seem to be taking forever 
to get from there to here.

And remember........da more ya buy, the cheaper they fly!

First contact (that is e-mail, or phone)  that says I want it gets it. 
Oldtools terms, except on items and orders over $100, if I don't know ya 
or haven't done business in the past (and my records good way back..) 
then it's pre-pay.  I do take PayPal (except as noted).  Prices do not 
include shipping.  All items are shipped with Delivery Confirmation. 
Insurance, unless it is a big order or a very fragile item is optional. 
Just let me know.  Also, I  am shipping a lot more stuff via First Class 
mail.  There will be a small amount added to the shipping cover the cost 
of the padded mailer.  I don't get them for free.

Please put your name and address in the message.  Saves time and email 
traffic!

Old Germantown Nantucket Style Coopers Hoop Driver Head.  Measuring 5 
1/8" long, the face is 1 1/8" in diameter, the groove is 1 7/16" high, a 
little over 3/16" wide across the outside, and this weighs 1 lb 4 1/2 oz 
unboxed.  This is in decent condition and was cleaned.  The body has 
some light patina but it was never finished off real pretty to start 
with.  The striking face has some wear and there is a little mushrooming 
on the one side.  The groove is good other than some wear on the 
outside.  This ain't minty but cooper's tools by this maker are few and 
far between.  $24.00

Vintage Wooden Hollow Curved Sole Scraper.  Measuring 10" overall, the 
blade is  4 1/4" wide, 1/8" thick, and this weighs 9 1/2 oz unboxed. 
Not signed as to the maker.  This is in decent condition and was 
cleaned.  The body is good other than some wear to the finish.  The 
screws all work.  The blade has some light scratches and pitting but 
nothing too bad and it is pretty thick for a scraper.  The edge is good 
but could stand a quick touch-up.  This ain't perfect but these bigger 
curved sole scrapers do not show up very often.  $22.00

Four Gimlet Tip Bits For A Brace or Bitstock. The upper one is a 7, 
(these are in 32nds of a inch increments in cause you were asleep in 
class that day in first grade), the next one is a 9, the next one is a 
10, the bottom one is an 11, and they weigh 5 oz unboxed.  These are in 
reasonably good shape and were not cleaned, at least by me.   There are 
few light spots of patina but nothing too bad.  The edges feel good but 
that doesn't mean that they won't need a touch-up.  None of these are 
notched for a bitstock but that is easy enough to do.  It sure ain't 
getting any easier to put these sets together.  $20.00

Uncommon Stanley No 291B 2 oz Midget Ball Peen Hammer.  Measuring 10" 
overall, the head is 2 7/16" long, the face is 9/16" in diameter, the 
peen is 7/16" in diameter, and this weighs 4 oz total unboxed.  This is 
in decent condition and was cleaned.  The head has some light dings on 
the sides of the eye but nothing serious patina wise.  The peen is good. 
  The face has some tiny dings and a few tiny chips around the edge. 
The handle looks to be the original one.  That has some dings, stains, 
and someone notched out the one side, but it's solid and the head is on 
tight.  This ain't pristine and it sure ain't got the price of a minty 
one either.  $24.00

Hand Forged Blacksmith 1 lb 5 oz Straight Peen Hammer Head.  Measuring 4 
7/8" long, the face is 1 3/16" high, 1" wide, the peen is 1 3/16" high, 
and this weighs 1 lb 5 1/2 oz unboxed.  Not signed as to the maker. 
This is in decent condition and was cleaned.  There is some roughness 
and grinder scuffs on the body left over from when this was made.  The 
face has some dings and wear and there are a couple of tiny chips on the 
edge.  The peen has a little roughness but nothing too bad.  The punched 
eye is good to go.  This ain't pretty or perfect but it will get the job 
done.  $22.00

Early Hand Forged 1 3/8 Inch Leather Belt Strap End Punch. Measuring 7 
7/8" long, the blade is 1 3/8" wide, 1" high at the center, and this 
weighs 11 1/2 oz unboxed.  This is signed on the back of the handle, but 
I can't make out much other than part of Warranted.  This is in decent 
condition and was cleaned.  There is some patina overall but nothing too 
bad.  The edge has some light dings and will need a sharpening.  I did 
take some sharp mushrooming off of the striking end.  This ain't minty 
but I sure don't see too many of these early ones around.  $20.00

Moss & Gamble Cast Steel 1 lb 6 oz Ball Peen Hammer Head.  Measuring 4 
7/16" long, the face is 1 3/8" in diameter, the peen is a little over 1" 
diameter, and this weighs 1 lb 6 3/4 oz unboxed.  Moss & Gamble were 
founded in 1853 in Sheffield England as steel and tool makers.  The 
company continued in business until 1997, but this tool looks to be from 
the 1870's or 1880's and this is a forged head.  This is in decent 
condition and was cleaned.  There is some overall light patina and JHC 
made his mark a few times on both sides of the eye.  The face has some 
wear and light dings.  There are also some small chips around the edge 
and the start of some mushrooming.  The peen is a little flattened at 
the end and there is some light frosting.  The eye has a little crusty 
inside and little mushrooming on the top but that is good to go.  This 
ain't minty but considering the age, well it sure ain't bad and tools by 
this maker sure don't show up much, at least around here.  $22.00

Old 6 oz Cross Peen Hammer.  Measuring 8 1/16" overall, the head is 3 
5/8" long, the face is a little over 1/2" square, the peen is 11/16" 
wide, and this weighs 6 1/2 oz unboxed.  Not signed as to the maker. 
This is in reasonably good condition and was cleaned.  The head is clean 
other than some light stained spots and some dings.  The face also has 
some light dings and a little wear around the edge.  The peen is good. 
The handle is the original one.  Some one shortened it and there are 
worn spots on the side where his thumb and finger went.  The head is on 
tight setting here but things do loosen up in shipping.  This is a neat 
hammer and they sure haven't been showing up much in this kind of shape.

Vintage No 2 Rein Trimmer.  Measuring 5 5/8" long, the blade is a little 
over 5/16" wide across the outside of the tips, and this weighs 1 oz 
unboxed.  Not signed as to the maker, but few of these are.  This is in 
decent condition and was cleaned.  There is some light patina on both 
sides of the blade.  The edge will need a quick sharpening.  The handle 
is stained hardwood and that is good.  The blade is in tight with no 
help from me.  This ain't pristine but these guys sure ain't been 
showing up any prettier lately.  $14.00

Ackerman & Johnson Bangor PA Slater Slate Roofing Hammer.  Measuring 10 
3/4" long, the head is 7 1/4" long, the face is 3/4" high, 3/8" wide, 
and this weighs 1 lb 4 3/4 oz unboxed.  Ackerman & Johnson made tools 
for the slate trade in Bangor PA, I don't have the exact working dates 
but they were working in the early 1900's from what I can find.  This is 
in decent condition, it was previously cleaned rather aggressively, and 
I just took off some recent patina.  There is some overall scuffing on 
the head and shaft.  The face is good, the spike could stand a little 
sharpening, and the nail claws are good as well.  The breaking edges on 
the sides of the shaft are both good.  The stacked leather washer handle 
has some wear and a few bits of paint but that is solid.  I did not mess 
with the nut on the end.  This ain't perfect and it sure ain't got the 
price tag of a minty one either.  $35.00

Stanley No 75 Bullnose Rabbet Plane.  This weighs 10 1/2 oz unboxed. 
This is in reasonably good condition.  This was cleaned and refinished. 
Read on.  Note this is straight, any bending you see is because of 
camera lens distortion, although why folks would think that I would sell 
a bent plane is beyond me.  The machined sides have some frosting.  The 
sole is good.  The original japanning was worn and there was some rust 
showing so this was repainted.  Stuff happens eh?  The cap is good.  The 
blade has some light spots of pitting but nothing too bad there.  The 
blade will need a sharpening.  Both the screws work and were oiled. 
This ain't pristine but it sure ain't bad either.  $27.00

long, the blade is 3 11/16" wide across the outside, 3 1/2" wide across 
the inside, 1 7/8" high at the center, 7/8" to 15/16" thick and this 
weighs 7 3/4 oz unboxed.  Not signed as to the maker.  This is in decent 
condition and was cleaned.  There is some rusting and pitting on the 
blade.  The edge has some roughness but this is still fairly sharp.  The 
handle has some dings, stains, and wear, but it's solid and on tight. 
This ain't the prettiest but these guys sure do not show up very often 
anymore, at least around these here parts.  $45.00

Smith & Wesson Sight Adjustment Screwdriver.  Measuring 3 1/16" long, 
the tip is 1/8" wide, and this weighs 1/2 oz unboxed.  Not signed as to 
the maker, but I know what it is and you know what it is so spare me the 
commentary.  This is in used but good and was not cleaned.  There is a 
little patina on the blade but nothing to fuss about wear wise.  The 
aluminum handle has some stains and light wear.  This ain't minty and it 
sure ain't got the price tag of a minty one either.  $28.00

Stanley No 15-640 Saw Set Or Sawset.  This weighs 11  oz unboxed.  This 
is marked Pat Pend and Japan inside the handles.  This is in used but 
good shape and was not cleaned.  There are some dings to the finish but 
most of it is there.  The plunger and anvil are good.  This uses the 
same captive plunger as found on the Stanley No. 42X saw set.  This also 
has a magnifer lens on the top for those tired old eyes.  This ain't 
minty but considering that it's 1/2 the price of a new one, well it sure 
ain't bad and it will get the job done.  $22.00

Stanley No 3C Type 19 Smooth Or Smoothing Plane.  This weighs 3 lbs 
unboxed.  This is a Type 19 and was made by Stanley between 1948 and 
1961.  This looks to be a later one.  This is in reasonably good 
condition and was cleaned.  Note this is straight, any bending you see 
is because of camera lens distortion, although why folks would think 
that I would sell a bent plane is beyond me.  The sides are good other 
than a little frosting and a couple of tiny dings.  The sole is also 
clean other than a tiny chip off of the edge on the toe.  The japanning 
is original and close to perfect except on the tops of the sides.  The 
lever cap has some tiny dots of patina but the plating is still there. 
The chipbreaker is good.  The blade has some light stuff on the exposed 
areas and back but the cutting face is clean and there is lots to work 
with.  The edge is slightly rounded to one side but the blade will need 
a sharpening anyways.  The tote and knob have the original finish plus a 
coat of wax.  There are some dings to the finish on both but they are 
solid.  All the screws work and were oiled.  This ain't minty but like 
almost all of the planes of this vintage, this one did it's tour of duty 
as a carpenter's plane and it lived to tell the tale.  $55.00

7/16" high, and this weighs 6 lbs 9 1/2  oz unboxed.  This is signed but 
the mark is partial.    This is in decent condition and was cleaned. 
There is some light patina including some of the original red paint but 
nothing too bad.  The face has some wear around the edges.  The peen 
also has some light wear.  The punched eye is good to go.  This ain't 
pristine but these big guys rarely are.  $24.00

frosting and a few deeper dots of patina down close to where the tang 
starts.  The back also has some light stuff but that was never finished 
off real pretty to start with.  The handle looks to be a replacement, 
but that is good other than a few stains.  This ain't minty but it will

Stillman Sawset or Saw Set.  Measuring 6 7/8" long and this weighs 4 oz 
unboxed.  Not signed as to the maker.  Stillman made this style but 
never patented it.  Some of these had brass collars, this has a steel 
one.  This is in reasonably good condition and was cleaned.  There ain't 
much to fuss about patina wise.  The undersides of the tips have a 
little wear but nothing too bad.  All the screws work.  The handle is 
good.  These guys are a lot less common than the patent models and 
rarely do they show up in this kind of shape.  $18.00

Two Sculpture Associates 1/4 In Carving Tool Gouges.  The upper one is a 
No. 7 sweep, measuring 4 5/8" from the edge to the top of the handle, 
this is 10 1/8" overall, the lower one is a No. 9 sweep, measuring 4 
11/16" from the edge to the top of the handle, this is 9 13/16" overall, 
and they weigh 4 1/4 oz unboxed.  These were made in Germany, the marks 
are faint but I figured it out.  Sculpture Associates was a New York NY 
importer and make of tools for wood and stone carving, which was 
purchased by Sculpture House.  These are in decent condition and were 
cleaned.  The insides of the sweeps are clean other than some light 
frosting, there is some light pitting on the edges.  The backs also have 
some light pitting but those were never finished off real pretty like to 
start with.  The handles were user crafted.  They have some dings, 
stains, and the handle on the No. 9 has a couple of checks but it's 
solid.  These ain't perfect but they sure ain't bad either.  $20.00

Vintage Aluminum Body Marking Utility Layout Knife.  The handle is 4 
3/16" long, the blade is 5/8" wide, and this weighs 3 1/2 oz unboxed. 
Not signed as to the maker, this looks to be user crafted.  This is in 
decent condition and was cleaned.  The body has some roughness and there 
is v groove on the one side, why I have not a clue.  The blade clamps 
are good and both screws work.  The blade is a cut down Dexter.  That 
has soem scuffs on the cutting end but nothing too bad patina wise. 
This is what it is, but it will get the job done.  $17.00

Old Hand Forged Small Jaw Farriers Nippers With Ball End Handles. 
Measuring 9 3/8" long, the jaws are a little under 3/8" wide, about 1/2" 
deep, and this weighs 7 1/4 oz unboxed.  Not signed as to the maker. 
This is in reasonably good condition and was cleaned.  There is some 
patina but nothing too bad.  The jaws are good but they would need a 
sharpening it.  The joint has a little wiggle and I'm guessing that the 
nut and bolt were a replacement for the original rivet.  The ball end 
handles are good.  I gotta say that I sure don't see too many of these 
guys around in this size.  $18.00

M Hey Phila PA Hand Forged Coopers Hoop Driver Head.  Measuring 4 1/16" 
long, the groove is 1 5/16" high, 5/16" wide across the outside, and 
this weighs 1 lb 3 3/4 oz unboxed.  The M Hey Mfg Co was a Phila PA 
maker of goods for the brewing and bottling trades.  The only dates I 
found were in the 1920's.  This is in decent condition and was cleaned. 
There is some overall patina.  The groove has some dings on the outside 
edges but it's good on the inside.  I did take some sharp stuff off of 
the striking end, that ain't perfect, but it's better than it was. 
There is some chipping and a few voids on the sides.  The punched eye 
has some light crusty inside but it's good to go.  This ain't minty but 
cooper's tools weren't exactly purchased just to be looked at and I sure 
don't see too many by this maker around.  $22.00

light pitting on the head plus a couple of deeper spots.  The face is 
good other other than a few light spots of patina.  The peen is good 
although the edge is slightly rounded.  The handle is a recent addition. 
  That has a check under the eye from the wedge and a few stains.  The 
head wiggles a touch but it's not going anywhere.  This ain't pristine 
but these older ones sure don't show up very often.  $45.00

blued finish.  The jaws are good on both of them.  The screws are also 
all good other than a few tiny dings on the threads and they travel the 
full distance.  These ain't pretty or perfect but they are quality 
working tools and if you want pretty, well bring more money.  $30.00

in decent condition and was cleaned.  There is some overall light 
pitting and patina on the tool.  The blade is good other than some light 
pitting but the screw doesn't work. and I ain't gonna force it.  The 
black walnut handle has some deep staining, wear, and a few checks but 
it's on tight.  This ain't pristine but tools like this weren't exactly 
purchased just for their beauty.  $45.00

peen is 3/8" wide, and this weighs 1 1/4 oz total unboxed.  There is a 
makers mark on the one side but nothing I recognize.  This is in decent 
condition and was cleaned.  There is some light patina on the head.  The 
face has some tiny dings and a little wear.  I did clean some 
mushrooming from around the edge.  I also dressed the peen because of 
some chipping.  That is good other than a tiny chip still on the top. 
The handle is a replacement.  That has some stains but it's solid and 
it's much better than what was on there.  This ain't perfect but these 
little guys sure don't show up much at all, at least around these here 
parts.  $24.00

corners are good.  The handle has a little frosting on the machined 
surfaces but nothing too bad.  This is true, but if you want .001 
accuracy, well go get a Starrett.  This ain't minty but this size does 
not show up very often.  $24.00

1/4" long, 7 1/2" high, the chuck is 1/2" in diameter, and this weighs 3 
lbs 14 oz unboxed.  Charles J. Scholler of Buffalo, NY was granted Pat. 
No. 1,021,558 on Mar. 26, 1912 for the design of this tool which was 
made by the Keystone Manufacturing Co. also of Buffalo, NY.  This one 
isn't signed, the few I have had it's on the handle.  This is in decent 
condition and was cleaned.  There is some light patina and some 
roughness around the joint area of the chuck, including some grinder 
scuffs that are left over from when this was made.  This takes round 
shaft bits, some of these guys had square chucks.  The teeth on the 
ratchet have some chipping but it works and was oiled.  The bottom line, 
this ain't the prettiest but these guys do not show up very often.  $30.00

MA was granted Pat. No. 319,215 on June 2, 1885 for the design of this 
tool and Laroy S. Starrett of Athol, MA was granted Pat. No. 642,170  on 
  Jan. 30, 1900 for the design of the quick set spring nut.  It's a 
pretty safe bet that this guy is well over the 100 year old mark.  This 
is in reasonably good condition and was cleaned.  There is some frosting 
and scuffs on the arms but nothing too bad.  There is a user name 
lightly marked on the back.  The tips are good and this closes tight. 
The spring nut works but that could stand a little oil and the screw 
threads are good as well.  This ain't pristine but it sure ain't bad and 
it is not a very common tool, at least in my travels.  $20.00

they close up tight.  The hammer poll has some dings and wear but no 
cracks that I can see.  The "through the center" joint has a little 
wiggle but nothing too bad there.  The handles are good other than the 
patina.  This one never had a tack claw on the end.  This ain't pretty 
or perfect but it will get the job done.  $23.00

water bath.  The top has some pits, but those look like they are left 
over from when this was made.  The underside is good other than some 
staining.  There are some dings on the edges.  This ain't perfect but it

Buell Bros Clinton CT Tool Handle.  Measuring 5 3/4" long and this all 
weighs 4 1/2 oz unboxed.  The Buell Bros were Clinton CT makers of tool 
handles who started in business around 1883.  This is in reasonably good 
condition and was cleaned.  The chuck has a little patina but nothing 
too bad and the threads were oiled.  The ferrule is a little loose but 
it's not going to fall off.  The handle looks to be maple.  That has 
some dings and stains and the cap has knot hole on the one side.  The 
threads have a few dings but the cap stays on.  This comes with 10 bits. 
  Those are good for the most part, but the bradawls all will need some 
sharpening (my guess is that they were used as screwdrivers.)  This 
ain't perfect but for a 100 plus year old tool, well it sure ain't bad.
