Another year is upon us. The weather has been down and up and it's not

 been helping with the effort but as always there is a good run of new

 stuff here including some great collectibles.

 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.

 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!

 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

 P Carter Hand Forged Millwrights Mill Pick Head. Measuring 8 1/16" 
 long, the edges are 1 3/8" and 1 1/4" wide, 5/8" high at the eye, and

 this weighs 1 lb 2 1/4 oz unboxed. Pulaski Carter was a Scranton PA 
 based tool maker in business from the 1860's until at least the
1890's. 
 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

blade 
 is 5 7/8" long, the 1/2" is 8 1/16" overall, the blade is 5 13/16"
long, 
 and they weigh 7 1/4 oz unboxed. These are in decent condition and
were 
 cleaned. Both of them have some spots of light pitting on the backs
but 
 they are clean for the most part. They also have some light pitting
on 
 the sides and tops. The sockets also have some patina and they 1/2"
has 
 a whisker of mushrooming on the outside. They will need handles, I 
 don't have any here that will fit. These ain't perfect but they will 
 get the job done. $24.00

 Two Vintage Buck Bros Brace Bits. There is a screwdriver bit,
measuring 
 5/16" across the tip, a countersink bit, 5/8" in diameter, and they 
 weigh 3 oz unboxed. These are in reasonably good condition and were 
 cleaned. Both have some staining and a little frosting but nothing
too 
 bad. The tip on the screwdriver was dressed at some point but it's
good 
 to go. The edge on the countersink could stand a quick touch up. The 
 tangs have some dings and the screwdriver bit had a little
mushrooming 
 removed. These ain't minty fresh but they sure ain't bad. $15.00

 Stanley No 60 3/4 Inch Bench Or Paring Chisel. Measuring 4 3/16" from

 the edge to the top of the handle, the blade is 2 3/4" long, this is
7 
 9/16" overall, and this weighs 5 3/4 oz unboxed. This is in
reasonably 
 good condition and was cleaned. The back is clean other than some 
 scuffs up by the edge. The top has a few frosted spots. The edge will

 need some work. The handle has some dings and light wear. The strike 
 button also has some dings but still has most of the plating. This 
 ain't minty but it sure ain't bad either. $18.00

 Vintage Stortz Phila Oyster Clam Shucking Knife. Measuring 8 1/2" 
 overall, the head is 2 3/4" long, 1/2" wide, the handle is 3/4"
square, 
 and this weighs 14 1/4 oz unboxed. This is in reasonably good
condition 
 and was cleaned. The head has some light pitting but that's an 
 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
tools. 
 $24.00

 body on the Stanley is fairly good other than some scuffs on the top
of 
 the eye and some scratches on the underside. The other one has some 
 overall light pitting. The face on the Stanley has some wear, the
other 
 one has some light pitting. Both peens have a little roughness. Both

 Stanley No 20 8 Inch Cabinet Makers Try Square. This weighs 6 3/4 oz

 me. The blade has some spots of rust. The original bluing is worn. 
 The edges and corners are good and all the rulings are readable. The 
 handle has some dings on the edges and a little wear to the original 
 finish. This is true according to my reference square. This ain't 
 minty but it will get the job done. $16.00

 Detroit Stove Works Anvil Paperweight. Measuring 4 1/4" long, 2 3/16"

 high, and this weighs 7 1/2 oz unboxed. There is 22 stamped on the 
 base, might be a year or a production run number. This is in decent 
 condition and was lightly cleaned. Just light brushing and wash to
get 
 rid of some crusty. This is some kind of diecast metal. The original 
 gold paint is worn but some of it is present. There is some overall 
 patina going on and it is missing a little bit of the horn. This
ain't 
 minty but these guys rarely are. $40.00

 Wade & Butcher 3/4 Inch Straight Razor. The blade is 3/4" wide and
this 
 weighs 1 3/4 oz unboxed. This is in good condition and was not
cleaned, 
 at least by me. The blade is clean save for one small spot on the
front 
 and some light scuffs. The edge is good and sharp. There is a little 
 light patina on the handle. The horn handle scales have some wear and

 there is a user name lightly marked on the front but they are solid. 
 This ain't minty but it sure ain't bad. $70.00

 Vintage Cast Iron Hand Vise Or Handvise. Measuring 5" long, the jaws 
 are 1 7/16" wide, and this weighs 14 1/4 oz unboxed. Not signed as to

 the maker. This is in fair condition and was cleaned. There is some 
 overall patina. The jaws have some pitting on the tops. The cross 
 hatching is worn on the one face but it's fairly good on the other 
 face. The jaws close up fairly tight. The screw was replaced at some 
 point in time and the wing nut is home grown as well. Somebody added 
 some solder to keep the screw head captive but that is worn. The
screw 
 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

 Tabor Mfg Co 4 Inch 1885 Patent Speed Indicator. Measuring 4" long
and 
 this weighs 2 1/2 oz unboxed. Harris Tabor of New York, NY was
granted 
 Pat. No. 325,991 on Sept. 8, 1885 for the design of this tool. This
is 
 in reasonably good condition and was cleaned. The body has a few dots

 and some scuffs but nothing too bad. The plating on the wheel is worn
a 
 little on the front and a little more on the back. The spring loaded 
 tip is good and this spins freely. This ain't pristine but it is not
a 
 very common tool, at least in my travels. $30.00

 W Butcher Cast Steel 2 1/4 Inch Plane Iron. Measuring 7 9/16" long, 2

 1/4" wide across the edge, and this weighs 9 1/4 oz unboxed. This is
in 
 reasonably good condition and was cleaned. Overall there isn't much
in 
 the way of patina. There is just a whisker of mushrooming on the top.

 The steel cutting face has some frosting and light pitting for the
first 
 1/2 and some spots after than but most of that will work out as this
is 
 sharpened, which it will need. This ain't perfect but they ain't
making 
 these guys no more also. Just saying. $18.00

 P S & W No 1 Ex 1/2 Inch Mortising Chisel. Measuring 10 3/4" from the

 edge to the end of the socket, the blade is 7 3/4" long, the steel
bit 
 is 5 5/16" down the center, this is 16 7/8" overall, and this weighs
14 
 1/4 oz unboxed. This is in reasonably good condition and was cleaned
by 
 some one else. The steel bit has some patch of pitting in the center 
 and a few stained spots but it's good overall. The iron body has some

 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

 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
