Today was the Brown Auction Service Fall 2019 Dealer Sale held at the
Radisson in Camp Hill PA. The storms from the day before left a lot of
run off on the roads and a steady and heavy wind for most of the ride,
both going and coming back. There was good turnout of both dealers and
buyers. Saw a few of the familiar faces, including Tom Dugan, Bill
Weber, the elusive Tony Z, and Walt and Mary Henderson who had a table
Picture of the floor action.
Lots and lots of tools to look at.
View of the auction area which is happening tomorrow.
Pickings were fairly good. At the top are a curved and straight blade
spoke shaves, a pair of curved tavisher blades, a 6 inch bevel square, a
gouge, some Starrett calipers and dividers, a pair of Starrett
combination square center heads, a pair of leather punches, a Stanley
brad awl, small turnscrew, and a solid brass pocket level.
There is a screw lock rosewood mortising gage, a rosewood panel marking
gage, blacksmith straight peen hammer, a good pair of blacksmith tongs,
an S S Barry complex molding plane, a pair of 1/8" chisels, a 4" Stanley
No. 12 Type 1 square, and a few brace bits to add to the pile.
All in all it was good run.
