271773 Anthony Seo 2020‑09‑14 FS: 2020 Chapter 9 Page 1
First list for September.  Lots of fresh arrivals, collectibles, 
blacksmithing, woodworking, and that and this.  The fleas have been kind 
of productive but that's not going to last.

PayPal is now accepted and preferred (if you use it) on all items. It's 
easier for me to ship items off of a paid PayPal invoice, 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!

Fresh Goodes

Blacksmith Hand Forged Hot Cut Chisel Head.  Measuring 7 1/4" long, 1 
1/2" high at the end, and this weighs3 lbs 11 1/2 oz unboxed.  Not 
signed as to the maker.  This is in reasonably good condition and was 
cleaned.  There is a little patina but nothing worth kicking the cat 
over.  I did rough in a new edge but that will need a little fine 
tuning.  The striking end has a little mushrooming and had a little 
removed at some point but it's good to go.  Same for the punched eye.  
This ain't minty but for a working tool, it sure ain't bad.  $19.00

Greenfield Tool 5/8 Inch Ogee Molding Plane.  This weighs 1 lb 3 1/4 oz 
unboxed.  The Greenfield Tool Co was a Greenfield MA plane maker in 
business from 1851 until 1883.  This is in reasonably good condition and 
was cleaned.   Note this is straight, any bending you see is because of 
camera lens distortion.  The body is good other than a little staining 
and a few light dings.  There are a couple of small holes along the 
inside of the fence where another fence was added.  The sole and mouth 
are good.  The face of the iron is clean other than a little staining.  
The wedge is also good.  This ain't minty but overall it sure ain't 
bad.  $30.00

has some wear to the edges and some dings but it still has a remnant of 
the decal.  The locking screw works.  This ain't pretty or perfect but 
it will get the job done.  $15.00

RARE 18th Century .375 Inch Round Ball Bullet Mold.  Measuring 3 11/16" 
long, the cavities are .375 inch in diameter, and this weighs 1 1/2 oz 
unboxed.  Not signed as to the maker, but it's 18th Century or very 
early 19th Century as to the age.  This is in reasonably good condition 
for the age and was cleaned.  There is some overall scuffing left over 
from when this was made and a little rust inside the joint.  The 
cavities have a little light rust but nothing too bad.  The head is 
missing the small locator tab on the top.  The joint is good and this 
closes tight with just a whisker of daylight showing.  This ain't minty 
but these guys rarely show up any more. $50.00

when they are closed. The joint is good with no play.  The handles are 
bent a little.  This ain't pristine but considering the age of this guy, 
it ain't all that bad.  $40.00

small chip on the one side.  The peen is good.  The punched eye is also 
good save for a little crusty on the inside.  This ain't minty but it is

One of my flea market hero's hit this good with the shiny stuff.  There 
is the usual patina.  The one jaw is a little thinner than the other one 
and has a little chipping on the end.  The rivet is a bit banged up and 
the joint has some wiggle. These ain't pretty but they sure are shiny 
and they will get the job done.  $22.00

good. This ain't minty but it will get the job done.  $18.00

weighs 12 3/4 oz unboxed.  The mark is faint but can be read. This is in

mushrooming around the edge.  The peen is good save for some light 
dings.  The eye is good other than a little dinging on the inside.  This

made for Sears.  This is in reasonably good condition and was not 
cleaned.  The finish has a few dings but most of it is present.  The

Thom Appleton Boston 1 5/8 Inch Skew Rabbet Molding Plane.  This weighs 
1 lb 9 1/2 oz unboxed.  Thomas Appleton was a Boston MA plane maker who 
worked from 1866 until 1895.  This has the A mark.  This is in 
reasonably good condition and was cleaned.  Note this is straight, any 
bending you see is because of camera lens distortion. The body has some 
stains and a few bits of paint down in the grain. Somebody shorted the 
heel a little (when I got this, there was a pile of planes with the same 
modification, probably to fit into a tool box.)  The sole has some light 
scratches but is good and the mouth is as tight as when it was made.  
The wedge is good.  The iron is clean on the cutting face save for some 
scuffs.  That will need a touch-up.  I did take a little sharpness off 
of the end of the tang.  This ain't perfect but skew rabbet planes of 
this size and age rarely show up in this kind of condition.  Just 
saying.  $24.00

no play.  $22.00

The face and peen have some light dings but nothing too bad.  The handle 
is old and could be the original one.  That has some stains, dings, and 
wear but it feels solid enough.  This ain't minty but it will get the 
job done.  $19.00

Stanley No 25 TB 6 Inch Adjustable Bevel Square.  This weighs 2 1/2 oz 
unboxed.  This is in reasonably good condition and was not cleaned.  The 
b lade has a couple of small dots of patina and a few scuffs but has 
almost all of the plating.  The handle finish is good and the edges are

Early Yellow Birch 3/4 Inch Rule Joint Molding Plane.  Measuring 10" 
long, the cut is 3/4", and this weighs 13 1/2 oz unboxed.  Not signed as 
to the maker.  This looks to be late 18th Century as to the age.  This 
is in decent condition and was cleaned.  Note this is straight, any 
bending you see is because of camera lens distortion. The body has some 
dings, stains, and some tiny bits of paint down in the grain.  The sole 
has a chip at the toe and a small one at the front of the mouth.  There 
is some wear to the depth stop area.  The mouth isn't super tight but 
it's not too bad.  The wedge is oak and is an old replacement.  That 
ain't the prettiest but it does the job.  The iron has some spots of 
pitting on the face and I did clean a little mushrooming off of the end 
of the tang.  I do not have the other plane.  This ain't minty but tools 
of this age rarely are. $27.00

Fulton Tool Company 1 Inch Heavy Bevel Side Firmer Chisel. Measuring 10 
1/2" from the edge to the end of the socket, the blade is 7 3/16" long, 
and this weighs 15 oz unboxed.  The Fulton Tool Company was a marker of 
chisels and plane irons and is not the maker of the Sears Tools by that 
name.  This is in reasonably good condition and was cleaned.  The back 
has some scuffs up at the edge, some frosted spots, and a few dots of 
pitting, but it's clean for the most part.  The top also has a little 
patina.  I did clean a little mushrooming off of the socket but it's 
good to go.  This will need a handle, I don't have any here that will 
fit.  This ain't perfect but it will get the job done.  $18.00

Q S Backus Patent 1872 10 Inch Brace.  Measuring 14" long, the sweep is 
10", and this weighs 2 lbs unboxed.  Quimby S. Backus of Millers Falls, 
MA was granted Pat. No. 132,791 on Nov. 5, 1872 for the design of this 
tool.  This is in decent condition and was cleaned. There is some 
overall patina.  The chuck shell has some light pitting but the jaws 
work and it turns smoothly.  The grip has some stains and the pad has a 
few tiny bits of paint on the inside but both of those also spin.  This 
ain't pristine, but I can't tell you the last time I had one of these 
guys to offer, it's been that long.  $28.00
