RARE Hawes Patent 1913 Convertible Ratchet Wrench.  The handle is 8 1/8" 
long (from the end to the top of the head, and this weighs 1 lb 9 3/4 oz 
unboxed.  James C. Hawes of Brooklyn, NY was granted Pat. No. 1,050,131 
on Jan. 14, 1913 for the design of this tool which was made by the 
Convertible Ratchet Wrench Company of Allentown, PA. This is in decent 
condition and was cleaned.  There is some overall frosting, some spots 
of light pitting, and some dings on the head area.  The jaws have a 
little mushrooming on the edges and some dings on the insides but are 
fairly good.  The main screw travels the full distance and was oiled.  
The head pivots using the top screw and there are dimples on the shaft 
to hold it in position. The head on the position screw is bent a little 
but that does it's job.  The ratchet works in both directions and the 
locked position. The handle has some dings, stains, and a little wear, 
but it's solid.  This sure ain't minty fresh but it is a tool that 
rarely shows up.  US Priority Mail Shipping with insurance and signature 
confirmation is included in the price on this item.  $275.00

Starrett No 133 15 Inch Engineers & Plumbers Level.  This all weighs 3 
lbs 4 1/4  oz unboxed.  This is in used but reasonably good condition 
and was cleaned.  The machined surfaces have some frosting, scuffs, and 
a few dings.  The finish is original and about 98% plus a few tiny bits 
of paint that didn't want to come off.  All three clear level vials are 
good.  The locking screw for the adjustable vial works and the table is 
readable.  The wooden box has some stains, wear, and a few slivers off 
of the one edge and the lid, but it's solid.  This ain't pristine but it 
sure ain't bad and the wood boxes don't show up very often.  $70.00

This is in decent condition and was cleaned. There is some overall light 
patina.  Both of the edges are banged up a bit and would need a 
dressing.  The punched eye is good.  These guys sure have been few and 
far between of late, especially a signed one.  $23.00

steel bit is 2 3/8" long, and this weighs 1 lb 1 1/4 oz unboxed.  I

and some dings but it's clean for the most part.  There are some dings 
on the sides but nothing too bad.  The socket also has some dings and 
pitting at the end but it was never struck.  This ain't pristine but it

Vintage Wood Handle Side Pour Lead Ladle.  Measuring 9 1/4" long and

some scaling left over from when this was made and a little patina as 
well.  There is a wee bit of mushrooming on the end.  This ain't minty 
but it sure ain't bad and Stortz is a collectible maker of these tools.

me.  The blade has some spots of rust.  The original bluing is worn.

3/4" long (straight across), the face is 11/16" wide, 9/16" high, the 
claws are 1"  wide across the ends, and this weighs 7 oz unboxed.  Not

has some dings and wear and I did rule a file over some sharp bits of 
mushrooming on the edges.  The claws are good.  THe handle is old but 
probably not the original one.  That has some dings and stains but it's 
solid.  I did tap in the wedge and the head is on tight sitting here.

it to move.  The grip and pad are painted hardwood. They have some wear

across the inside of the groove, a No. 11 and a No. 18 stitch marking

beveler has some staining near the front of the back and a pitted spot 
farther down, and a little pitting on the sides on the top but nothing 
that will interfere with this being used.  Both of the wheels are good 
and leave a strong mark.  There is a little pitting on the sides and 
shafts.  The handles are japanned hardwood.  They have some wear and 
dings and the grain on the No. 11 is a little rougher.  They are solid 
and the heads are in tight.  These ain't pretty or perfect but they will 
the job done. $50.00

works.  The handle on the lower one has some wear around the center but 
it's solid.  The tips both have a little light pitting.  They will need 
a sharpening.  These ain't minty but they sure ain't getting any easier

Hand Forged Name Stamp.  Measuring 3 15/16" long, the figures are 1/4" 
high, and this weighs 9 1/4 oz unboxed.  The mark is J. Lundy. Not 
signed as to the maker, there is a different name stamped in a couple of 
places on the handle, my guess is that this was original a stone mason's 
tool.  This is in decent condition and was cleaned. There is some 
overall patina.  The figure was struck a little uneven and has some wear 
but there still is plenty left.  The striking end had some mushrooming 
removed at some point before this got here and that is good to go.  This 
is what it is, but it is a collectible old tool.  $18.00

end a little but that could stand a little more work.  The straight edge 
has a small chip off of the one end and could also stand a little 
dressing.  There is some chipping around the top of the eye but there 
still is plenty there to put on a handle.  This ain't pretty or perfect 
but it will get the job done. $15.00

Tyzack Turner No 660 Talisman 22 Inch 10 PT CC Panel Saw.  This weighs 1 
lb 6 3/4 oz unboxed.  This is NOS, that's New Old Stock, and was not 
cleaned.  There ain't nothing at all to fuss about with this guy.  The 
blade is shiny and sharp.  There is a little bit of the protective 
coating showing at the toe and a couple of light dings from riding in 
the box.  The tote also has couple of tiny dings on the back but the saw 
nuts are as good as they get.  This is a quality tool made by an well 
respected English saw maker and I have been selling and shipping saws 
now for over 25 years so I know what I'm talking about.  $30.00

head moves a little but it does stay put to close the jaws.  The spring 
and joint do their job.  This one ain't pretty or perfect but it will 
get the job done.  $23.00

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

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.

 of light pitting, and some dings on the head area. The jaws have a 
 little mushrooming on the edges and some dings on the insides but are

 fairly good. The main screw travels the full distance and was oiled. 
 The head pivots using the top screw and there are dimples on the
shaft 
 to hold it in position. The head on the position screw is bent a
little 
 but that does it's job. The ratchet works in both directions and the 
 locked position. The handle has some dings, stains, and a little
wear, 
 but it's solid. This sure ain't minty fresh but it is a tool that 
 rarely shows up. US Priority Mail Shipping with insurance and

but

 bad. The tip on the screwdriver was dressed at some point but it's

mushrooming 
 removed. These ain't minty fresh but they sure ain't bad. $15.00

 occupational hazard with these guys. The edge is good. The handle has

 some scaling left over from when this was made and a little patina as

 well. There is a wee bit of mushrooming on the end. This ain't minty 
 but it sure ain't bad and Stortz is a collectible maker of these
