269301 Anthony Seo 2019‑10‑07 FS: The Outpourings Of October List A
October is here, with it's shorter days and colder nights.  Got a good 
run of fresh goods on here including some hand to find blacksmith items.

PayPal is now accepted and preferred (if you use it) on all items. It's 
easier for me to ship items through there, especially First Class 
ones.   Checks and money orders are still welcome.

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.  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!

Fresh Arrivals

T H Witherby 3 Inch Slick Chisel & Original Handle.  Measuring 15 1/8" 
from the edge to the end of the socket, the blade is 10 1/8" long, the 
steel bit is 5 7/16" long, this is 28 3/4" overall, and this weighs 4 
lbs 2 1/4 oz unboxed.  This is in reasonably good condition and was 
cleaned.  There is some pitting on the steel back up at the edge but 
after that it's good other than some frosting and a few dots.  The iron 
body has some frosting on the back and the front.  The edge will need 
some work.  The socket is good.  The maple handle is the original one.  
That is good other than some stains.  This ain't pristine but it sure 
ain't bad and these guys sure are getting few and far between of late.

wide, the edge is 2 1/2" wide, the steel bit is 1 7/8" deep, and this

has some patina going.  The face is clean other than some small chips 
around the edge and a few dings.  The edge has some chipping and will 
need some work.  The handle is original as is the bolt.  That does 
remove but it takes some work to get it in and out.  The handle has a 
void on the one side and a check at the end but it's solid.  This ain't 
pretty or perfect but these guys rarely area.  $45.00

Darling Brown & Sharpe 3 Inch Machinist Try Square.  Measuring 3 7/8" 
overall in length, 2 5/8" high, and this weighs 4 1/4 oz unboxed.  
Darling, Brown & Sharpe were in business from 1866 until 1892, when 
Darling left the building.  This is in decent condition and was 
cleaned.  The rule has frosting on the front or signed side and very 
lightly scratched user initials.  The back of the blade has some very 
light pitting and a user name as well.  THe edges and corners are good.  
The handle has some light pitting on the inside face and the outside but 
the edges on that are good as well.  This is true according to my 
reference square here.  This ain't minty but considering that it is at 
the least, 127 years old and probably a whole lot older than that, well 
it sure ain't bad. $30.00

check under the ferrule and there are the usual dings and stains.  I 
gotta say that putting together a set of these guys in this kind of

Stanley

Stanley Rule & Level No 12 1/4 Veneer Scraper.  This weighs 2 lbs 8 1/2 
oz unboxed.  This is in decent condition and was cleaned. The sides are 
good other than some frosting.  The sole has a patch of light pitting 
and some frosting.  There are scratch marks on both sides of the mouth 
but it's not cracked.  The japanning is original and about 80% present.  
There is some funky on there.  The cap works and the blade angle 
adjuster works as well.  This will need a blade.  The rosewood handle 
has a chip off of the turning where the screw is, but I put it back on 
with the pretty side up.  There are some dings but it's solid.  All the 
screws work and were oiled. This ain't the prettiest but these guys are 
sure few and far between.  $100.00

2 5/16" high, this is 10 13/16" overall in length, 7 1/16" in height, 
and this weighs 12 1/4 oz unboxed.  This is a Type 1 and was made by 
Stanley between 1859 and 1874.  This has the R & L Eagle logo but that 
is faint.  This is in reasonably good condition and was cleaned.  The 
blade has some staining and a few frosted spots but nothing too bad.  
The edges and corners are good. The rosewood handle is good save for a 
few dings but it is missing the brass star.  This is not a very common 
Stanley square and in this condition, this is a real find.  $70.00

Stanley No 81 Cabinet Scraper Plane.  This weighs 1 lb 12 3/4 oz 
unboxed.  This is in decent condition and was cleaned (it might not look 
like it, but trust me, it was!)  There is some overall patina. The 
plating on the tops of the handles is present but a little rough.  There 
is a small chip off of the rosewood sole, along with some scratches and 
wear, but it's not completely worn out.  The screw for the blade clamp 
and the rod for the clamp head both work and were oiled.  The screws on 
the sole also remove.  This will need a blade.  Minty picked up and 
moved out of town on this guy a while back, but it will get the job 
done.  $28.00

New Britain, CT were granted Pat. Nos. 562,678 and 562,679 on June 23, 
1896 for the process used to make this tool.  This is in as found 
condition and was not cleaned.  There is some wear to the plating and 
some light patina on the base.  The clear level vial is good and the 
protective cover rotates.  The vial assembly does wiggle a little.  The 
base is good other than the wear and patina. This ain't minty but 
considering that it's over 100 years old, well it sure ain't that bad.

Stanley No 65 Boxwood Marking Gage.  This weighs 4 3/4 oz unboxed. As 
you can see, somebody drilled a hanging hole through the mark but I know 
what it is.  This is in decent condition and was cleaned. The beam has 
some stains and wear at the end where the tip is, but it's straight and 
all the rulings are readable.  The point is good and the screw works.  
The head also has some stains and wear.  The locking screw does it's 
job.  This ain't pristine but it will get the job done.  $17.00

nothing else too bad patina wise.  The edges and corners are good.  The 
rosewood handle has some dings and wear and there are user initials on 
the front below the screw.  The locking lever is bent a little, but that 
is common with these older ones. The lever and screw work and were 
oiled.  This ain't the prettiest but it will get the job done.  $18.00

Edge Tools

Hudson Handsome 7/8 Inch Wheelwright Corner Chisel.  Measuring 12 1/16" 
from the edge to the end of the socket, the blade is 8 1/8" long, the 
one side is 7/8" wide, the other is 15/16", this is 16 1/2" overall, and 
this weighs 1 lb 6 1/2 oz unboxed.  I have no information on this maker 
other than to say that other edge tools with this mark have shown up.  
This is in decent condition and was cleaned.  There is some light 
pitting on both sides of the back up by the edge and some light spots on 
the way down.  The edge is fairly good.  The inside does have some 
pitting and patina.  The socket also has some pitting and some dings.  
The handle is old and might be the original one one.  That is in fair 
condition, with some checks, stains, and wear, but it feels solid enough 
to use.  I did not have it off of the tool.  This ain't pretty or 
perfect but it will get the job done.  $35.00

done.  $19.00

light patina.  The socket is good but had a little mushrooming removed.  
The handle is a new replacement done by the other guy.  That is well 
made and on tight. This longer ones sure are getting few and far 
between, at least around these here parts.  $35.00

Vintage No 17 Spokeshave Or Spoke Shave.  Measuring 8 13/16" long, the 
blade is 1 11/16" wide, and this weighs 6 1/2 oz unboxed. Marked as 
shown.  This is in decent condition and was cleaned.  The finish is 
original.  That has some wear, dings, and a few spots of funky that 
didn't want to come off.  The sole has visible machining marks but it's 
good otherwise.  The blade is clean other than some staining and there 
is lots to work with.  The edge will need a sharpening.  The cap and 
screw are good.  This ain't the fanciest but it will get the job done.

blade is 8 1/8" long, 1 3/16" wide across the edge, and this weighs 1 lb 
1 oz unboxed.  Dunlap was brand name used by Sears on one of it's tool 
lines, this also has a maker mark of BV, although I can't find who that 
is.  This is in reasonably good condition and was cleaned.  The steel 
area of the back of the blade has a few small and very light dots of 
patina but it's good for the most part.  The edge has a couple of tiny 
dings but it won't take much to get back to shaving sharp.  The top has 
some dings and I did take some mushrooming off of the back.  The iron 
frame and front have some frosting.  The handles have some dings to the 
finish and a few tiny bits of paint that didn't want to come off but 
they are solid and on tight.  The ferrules and end caps also have some 
light patina.  This ain't pristine but it sure ain't bad either and good 
ones sure ain't been showing up much of late.  $35.00

Machinist Tools

L S Starrett Machinist 12 Inch 3 Piece Combination Square.  This weighs 
1 lb 10 1/2 oz unboxed.  This is in reasonable condition and was 
cleaned.  The rule has some stained and frosted spots along with user 
initials, but nothing too bad and all the rulings are readable.  The 
edges and corners are crispy.  The square head has some wear to the 
finish and the same user initials and shop number marked on it.  The 
vertical machined face has a couple of light spots of pitting down by 
the slot but it's clean for the most mark and the miter face is good 
other than some staining.  This even has the scribe.  The protractor is 
a No. 490 bevel edge.  The face on that is good, the finish has a little 
wear and some funky spots. The locking screws and tabs are good on both 
and the screws for the protractor head both work.  Both of the clear 
levels are good to go.  This ain't minty but for a used tool, well it 
sure ain't bad. $65.00

Working & Collectible Tools

Emmert Turtleback Patternmaker Vise To Restore.  This is in as found, 
fresh from the shop condition.  There is a bunch of saw dust residue and 
shop patina from decades of use.  The front jaw wiggles and it looks 
like the inside of the front jaw has some chipping around the hole for 
the shaft, but I can't say for sure.  The hinge on the mounting bracket 
doesn't move but I didn't really nuts with it.  The main screw does 
work.  This is missing the tilt bracket and rod but most of the are.  
This is what it is but for the money you ain't gonna do much better.  
This is PICKUP only here at my shop here in Nesquehoning PA. $265.00

Four Gimlet Tip Bits. The upper one is a 5, (these are in 32nds of a 
inch), there is no size mark on this one, the next one is a 6, the next 
one is an 8, the bottom one is a 10, and they weigh 4 1/4 oz unboxed.  
All are in good shape, all were lightly cleaned but they were not bad to 
start with. There is a little patina up in the grooves 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.  These ain't 
perfect but they will get the job done. $18.00
