T1 - Toothing Plane - Atkin & Son Birmingham Warranted Marples Iron - $25
About 7 inches long with a 2 inch wide iron. Marked on toe Atkin & Son
Birmingham Warrranted also has a name stamp. Iron is a toothed 2 inch wide
one from Wm. Marples & Sons Hibernia Warranted Cast Steel. One side bottom
edge cooks a little charred, but it is still a fine user with no issues to
keep it from being a fine user. Good for preparing veneers. Chris Schwarz
I think has been talking about them for finishing bench tops to give some
T2 - Toothing Plane - Sorby Iron - $25
About 7 inches long with a 2 inch wide iron. Has about 8 different name
stamps on it, so it either passed through a lot of hands or was a retirement
present to remember the boys. No issues to keep it from being a fine user.

them for finishing bench tops to give some grip.
T3 - Antique & Collectible Stanley Tools John Walter 1990 - $25
This is the 1990 version of John Walter's big guide to Antique & Collectible
STANLEY TOOLS A Guide to Identity and Value. This differs from the later
1996 version on both prices and it has fewer type studies, but it still is
an invaluable reference that is extremely hard to get. This one is slightly
smaller so it is easier to keep with you when out searching for tools. The
first couple of pages are loose and pop pop has identified his past
ownership , I do not see any missing pages or markings in the book. 455
pages of jam packed info.
T4 - American Wooden Planes - 4th Edition Pollak and Elliot - $20
The 5th edition is out now. This is the 4th edition. Astragal Press still
has the 4th in stock for $34.95. This was my personal copy prior to seeing
Tom Elliot at an auction and buying the 5th edition direct from him. Here
is their write up on it: With its initial publication in 1983, A Guide to
the Makers of American Wooden Planes profoundly transformed the emphasis and
direction of tool collecting. Since then, it has been the definitive guide
to American planemakers, from the earliest individuals who worked before the
Revolutionary War to the last few manufacturers of the twentieth century.
Now, after several years of meticulous research, a new edition of this
extraordinarily influential reference book is available. This 4th edition,
completely revised by Tom Elliott, reflects the tremendous amount of
information on planemakers that has come to light since the last edition.
Included are: over 4000 biographical entries, over 5000 imprints, almost
2700 wedge outlines, and almost 3000 individual ratings for judging relative
scarcity and value. The difference between the 4th and 5th editions is the
number of entries (I am going to guess that the new ones are a little less
likely to be found as they were not in the book previously). Here is the
section on the 5th edition: 4590 biographical entries; 6160 imprint
illustrations; 3030 wedge outlines; and over 3000 individual ratings for
judging relative scarcity and value. Also included are sections providing
insights helpful in buying and selling planes, an illustrated glossary of
plane terms and styles, and an extensive bibliography for further research.
