269363 Anthony Seo 2019‑11‑01 Brown Auction Service Fall 2019 Dealer Sale
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 
there.

Lots and lots of tools to look at.

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.

Snuck in and out in full stealth mode!  Moments after chatting with Tony, I came
across a Washita, about 9" X 2-1/2" X 1", no case, but a gloatable cost of
$5.00!  I'll see you all at PATINA in March, but you won't see me!

Tony,

In the past I've waited to see you list things and sometimes the tools 
don't make it to your email. So....
I'm interested in the hammer and the tongs. How much?

Bud Brown's show and auction was a fun time, yet again.  As usual, lots 
of laughing and scratching with old friends.  Lots to learn from the 
experts and other sellers.

A big surprise was the display of three historic planes.  The most 
famous of planes was there, the 1876 ebony and ivory plow plane by 
Sandusky, that sold for $114K a few years back.  Also displayed was the 
Montgomery presentation plow ($65K recently) and the single arm plow by 
McMaster.  Great to see these originals.  I should have taken some 
pictures but didn't think of it.  Tony got the back of the display in 
this picture.  The table in the foreground, Sandusky on he left, 
Montgomery on the right, and the McMaster is hidden by the display.

I've been busy with other projects and didn't get into auction-mood as 
much as I could have.  I won four nice lots. The first is a band-box new 
and complete Stanley #143, one of the last ones made, with a SW logo.

Second lot was this pair of shrink rules.

Third lot was a nice 30" Stanley brass-bound level  It should fit nicely 
in the Hilton chest.  It is a little newish for the chest but I haven't 
found anything better as yet. I neglected to grab the picture for that 
one.  Last was this set of piano tuning tools.

These go well with the last of my restored player pianos.  The tools are 
from Hammacher Schlemmer except for the wire cutters which are Starrett. 
  Lots of brass, nickel and exotic wood. Yum!

Bill

Nice finds.  Does the same person own the three planes you mentioned??

I'm familiar with the history of the three planes, so I only glanced at 
the little historic blurb provided.  I don't remember whether there were 
two or three owners names.  I'm sure some of the other attendees were 
more observant than I.
