From from turtlenecks to t-shirts in the span of a few days, that's how 
this month has been going.  Rain or rumours of rain ain't been doing 
much for the flea market vendor attendance either.  But as always, I 
managed to source some good items.  Some collectible and lots of user 
goodies as well.

I'd really prefer a check for payment for all items.  On items less than 
$25 (not including shipping) no PayPal.  On combined purchases totaling 
over $25 then PayPal is okay.  This is for the USA buyers only.  The out 
of country folks,  PayPal will be accepted for all purchase, unless you 
want to send me a US denominated money order, then that is fine.  Sorry 
for the inconvenience but I'm just trying to cut the costs down a bit here.

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. 
Oldtools terms, except on items and orders over $100, if I don't know ya 
or haven't done business in the past (and my records good way back..) 
then it's pre-pay.  I do take PayPal (except as noted).  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!

Chaplin Patent No 1203 Corrugated Smoother Plane.  The sole is 8 3/8" 
long, the blade is 1 3/4" wide, and this weighs 2 lbs 1/2 oz unboxed.  I 
believe this is a Chaplin’s Improved Patent No 1203, made by Tower & 
Lyon, but there are no markings to that effect.  The only marks I can 
find are 3 & 4 cast into the underside of the cap and the front of the 
frog.  This is in reasonably good condition and was lightly cleaned 
(this definitely was not a rust rescue).  Note this is straight, any 
bending you see is because of camera lens distortion, although why folks 
would think that I would sell a bent plane is beyond me.  Both sides 
have some light dings, the left one (looking from the rear) has some 
light scratches, the right one has a more noticeable one down by the 
sole but it's not cracked.  The sole has some stained spots and 
scratches.  The japanning is original and is 95%.  There are a few tiny 
bits of paint.  The cap is good other than some tiny spots and dots on 
the plating.  The blade has some light stuff on the exposed areas.  The 
cutting face is good other than some scratches and dings to the edge. 
The blade will need a sharpening.  The depth adjuster lever works.  The 
knob is wood.  That has some dings and tiny bits of paint.  I did have 
that off.  The tote is the hard rubber one (getting to the READ part 
here).  That has an old repair at the front on the base, but the rest is 
good.  I did not have the tote off the tool.  This ain't minty but few 
of these guys are and it sure ain't got the price of a minty one either.

Sharp Stuff

Five Small Carving Tools.  There is a 1/16" gouge, a 1/8" bent V gouge, 
a 1/8" straight gouge, a 5/16" bent gouge, a 5/16" skew chisel, and they 
weigh 2 3/4 oz unboxed.  Not signed as to the maker.  These are in used 
but reasonably good condition and were cleaned.  There are some small 
spots of frosting and staining but nothing too bad.  The edges will need 
a touch-up in the sharpening department.  The graver or engraving tool 
style handles are all good.  I wouldn't want to try knocking out a totem 
pole with these guys but for doing the occassional close up detail work 
they will be fine.  $16.00

Buck Bros 1/2 Inch Carving Tool Chisel.  Measuring 5 1/8" from the edge 
to the top of the handle, the blade is 4" long, this is 9 7/16" overall, 
and this weighs 3 oz unboxed.  This is in decent condition and was 
cleaned.  The front of the blade has some dings and scratches.  The back 
was never finished off bright to start with.  This is sharpened to a 
knife edge, that's how these guys were made.  The handle has some dings 
and stains.  There is a user name stamped in one side, some light red 
initials that didn't want to come of, and some red writing on the 
striking end.  The handle is solid though.  This ain't pretty or perfect 
but it will get the job done.  $15.00

Pfeil Swiss No 2 Sweep 3/8 Inch Carving Tool Gouge.  Measuring 4 3/8" 
from the edge to the top of the handle, the blade is a hair under 3/8" 
wide across the outside of the sweep, this is 9 3/8" overall, and this 
weighs 6 oz unboxed.  Marked as shown.  This is in reasonably good 
condition.  The blade wasn't cleaned at all, but I did try to pretty up 
the handle a touch. The blade is clean inside the sweep and there is 
lots there to work with.  Somebody got a little creative with making 
their mark on the handle.  There is a small flat spot where the guy 
wrote something and those double lines that he inked in with something 
green.  The handle is good otherwise except for some light dings and 
wear.  There is a tiny brad in the striking end, why?, I have not a 
clue.  This ain't minty but the blade what you are buying this tool for 
and that is as good as they get.  $19.00

to the top of the handle, the blade is 3/16" wide across the outside of 
the sweep, this is 9" overall, and this weighs 1 3/4 oz unboxed.  This 
is in good shape and was cleaned.  The blade is good both on the inside 
and outside of the sweep other than a few tiny stained spots.  The 
original handle is good, that was stripped and waxed because of some 
paint issues.  This ain't pristine but it sure ain't bad.  $17.00

top of the handle, 6 7/16" overall,  the blade is 9/16" wide (straight 
across), and this weighs 1 1/4 oz unboxed.  Marked as shown.  This is in 
used but good condition and was not cleaned.  The blade has a few scuffs 
but nothing too bad.  The edge is good but could stand a touch-up.  The 
handle is good other than a couple of light dings and the blade is in 
tight.  This ain't the fanciest but it will get the job done.  $14.00

AMT Chip Carving Knife Tool Set.  This comes with four knives, the case, 
and this all weighs 5 1/2 oz unboxed.  These are in lightly used but 
good condition and were not cleaned.  There is nothing much to fuss 
about with these guys other than a little staining on the brass 
ferrules.  The blades are all good and were sharpened recently.  The 
case is good as well.  These ain't top of the line tools but they ain't 
the worst ones out there either.  $30.00

from the edge to the end of the socket, the blade is 5 3/4" long, this 
is 12 1/4" overall, and this weighs 3 1/2 oz unboxed.  Sampson was a 
brand name used by the Union Hardware Co.  This is in reasonably good 
condition and was cleaned.  The back is good other than a few rough 
spots on the side edges.  The rest of the blade is clean as well other 
than the user name scratch marked on both sides.  The blade does have a 
very slight bend looking from the top.  I did clean some mushrooming off 
of the socket but there still is plenty there.  The handle is a 
replacement.  That has a bit of dark grain on the one side but it's not 
cracked.  This ain't minty but it will get the job done.  $17.00

Late Model Stanley No 720 3/8 Inch Paring Or Bench Chisel.  Measuring 7 
13/16" from the edge to the end of the socket, the blade is 5 7/16" 
long, this is 11 9/16" overall, and this weighs 4 1/2 oz unboxed.  This 
just has Stanley, Made In USA on the ferrule without the model number. 
This is in decent condition and was cleaned.  The back does have some 
spots of light pitting and frosting but nothing too bad until you get 
down by the socket.  The rest of the blade has more of the same.  The 
socket is good and was never struck.  The handle is a replacement and 
was refinished.  That ain't perfect but it's better than it was.  This 
ain't pristine but it sure ain't bad either.  $30.00

Working Stuff

Walden No 4054 Starwheel 3/8 Inch Ratchet Wrench.  Measuring 2 7/8" 
across and this weighs 11 oz unboxed.  This is in used but good 
condition and was not cleaned.  There is a little wear to the finish on 
the top but nothing too bad.  The ratchet is good and works in both 
directions.  That could stand a drop of oil but I'll leave that in your 
capable hands.  I gotta say that this a neat tool and one that I sure 
don't see too many of.  Obviously, it ain't for taking off lug nuts but 
it could be handy at the right place and time.  $19.00

This weighs 2 3/4 oz unboxed.  This is in decent condition and was 
cleaned.  The blade has some light patina but nothing too bad and the 
edges and corners are good.  The rosewood handle has some dings and 
there are a couple of small scorch marks on the one edge.  The locking 
screw does it's job with grace and style.  This ain't pristine but it 
will get the job done.  $17.00

Craftsman 10 Inch Sweep Brace By Millers Falls.  This weighs 3 lbs 6 oz 
unboxed.  This is a Craftsman marked Millers Falls No. 1910 which was 
made between 1971 and 1981.  This has the Lion chuck which accepts both 
square tang and regular round shaft twist bits.  How about that, eh? 
This is in reasonably good condition.  The only real cleaning was to get 
rid of some rusting on the chuck and there is some plating loose on the 
end of the chuck.  The chuck and jaws are good.  The ratchet works in 
both directions and the locked position and was oiled.  That has a 
little play but nothing too bad.  The grip and pad are wood and they 
both have most of the original finish.  There are some dings on both and 
the pad has a little paint that refused to come off without a fight. 
Both spin freely.  This ain't minty but these Lion chuck braces are 
considered by many to be one of the better braces out there.  $30.00

was cleaned.  There ain't much in the way of patina to fuss about.  The 
chuck is good (I did try it with a bit) and it looks tight and holds the 
bit straight.  The tang has some light dings on the edges but nothing 
too bad there.  This is a handy tool to have around.  $17.00

Early Hand Forged Blacksmith Slag Chipping Hammer Head.  Measuring 7 
5/8" long, the vertical edge is 1 3/16" high, the flat edge is 1 1/4" 
wide, and this weighs 1 lb 5  oz unboxed.  Not signed as to the maker. 
This is in decent condition and was cleaned.  There is the usual patina 
found on these tools.   This does have steel bits on a wrought iron 
body.  There is void on the underside where the flat bit meets the iron 
but it ain't cracked.  The edges aren't too bad, I cleaned up the 
vertical one a bit, the other one was dressed before it got here, but 
they will need a little work if you want to shave your hee-haw with it. 
The punched eye has a little flaking on the inside looking from the 
bottom but it's solid otherwise.  This ain't pretty but then neither are 
you and this is a well made tool.  $17.00

decent condition and was cleaned.  There is some overall light patina 
including some scuffs left over from when this was made.  The 3 finger 
(2+1) joint is good.  The screw and wing nut look to be a more recent 
addition but it does it's job.  This is a neat tool and it will get the 
job done.  $18.00

Uncommon L S Starrett No 44 Double Arm Caliper.  Measuring 6 3/8" when 
closed and this weighs 3 oz unboxed.  I'm not sure when Starrett stopped 
making these guys but there is no mention of it in my 1953 catalog. 
This is in decent condition and was cleaned.  There are some spots of 
light pitting on the upper arms and the legs.  The joints are good, the 
one is a little stiff.  This ain't pristine but considering that I 
rarely see more than one of these guys every couple of years, well that 
should tell you how uncommon they are.  $24.00

Stanley No 9 1/2 12-020 Adjustable Mouth Block Plane.  This weighs 1 lb 
7 oz unboxed.  Made in the USA.  This is in used condition and was 
cleaned.  Note this is straight, any bending you see is because of 
camera lens distortion, although why folks would think that I would sell 
a bent plane is beyond me.  The sides are good other than the factory 
machining marks.  The sole has more of the same.  The japanning is 
original and 98% good on the body.  The finish on the cap has some dings 
but most of it is here.  The blade is clean on both sides.  There is a 
chip on the edge but the blade will need a sharpening anyways.  All the 
screws work and were oiled.  This ain't minty but it will get the job 
done.  $25.00

the edges), and this weighs 7 3/4 oz unboxed.  This is in used but 
reasonably good condition and was not cleaned.  There are some scuffs 
and wear but nothing too bad.  There are 9 blades, each one has 4 
gauges, some corner angles, but most are radius.  Those are all good to 
go.  The front of the handle has a cut out area that is ruled in MM. 
The back also has some numbers stamped and the top has a series of 
graduated notches but no size markings.  This what it is but it is a 
well made and handy tool to say the least.  $30.00

L S Starrett No 179 Machinist 6 Inch Thread Caliper.  Measuring 5 11/16" 
long (Starrett's idea of 6"), the tips are 3/8" wide, and this weighs 2 
1/4 oz unboxed.  This is in decent condition and was cleaned.  There 
wasn't much in the way of patina, just the usual shop grime.  The arms 
have some frosting but nothing too bad.  The joint and screw are good. 
The tips were dressed at some point and they don't close completely 
tight (the gap is like 1/32") which really won't affect anything unless 
you are working one something really tiny.  This ain't perfect but it 
will get the job done.  $17.00

and this weighs 1 3/4 oz unboxed.  S. V. Tuck is listed as an edge tool 
marker in Bridgewater, MA working from 1870 until 1871.  This is in 
decent condition and was cleaned.  The one tip is bent a little but that 
won't affect this being used.  The blade has some light pitting on the 
front, the back is clean.  The shaft also has some spots of light 
pitting.  The tang has some dings on the edges but there is plenty there 
to grab with a brace chuck.  This ain't pretty or perfect but these guys

top of the eye from when the handle was fitted (not my doings by the 
way).  The face has some light dings but nothing too bad and the peen is 
good.  The handle is a recent replacement.  I did give that a coat of

are NOS, that's New Old Stock, and were not cleaned.  Three of them are 
clean, the one has a few small rust spots, and the last one a few more. 
But it's not enough to cause any problems when these are used.  You sure

J Stevens A & T Co 6 7/8 Inch Machinist Outside Caliper. Measuring 6 
7/8" long and this weighs 2 1/2 oz unboxed. Joshua Stevens of Chicopee 
Falls, MA was granted Pat. No, Pat. No. 377,868 on Feb. 14, 1888 for the 
design of the joint used on this tool.  This was made by the J. Stevens 
Arms & Tool Co. also of Chicopee Falls, MA and was made somewhere 
between 1888 and 1896, when the company was bought out and the new 
owners focused on gun making.  This is in decent condition and was 
cleaned by someone else.  There is some overall frosting and a few spots 
of light pitting on the arms.  Somebody put 2 drill marks on the one arm 
for identification.  There is some crusty up inside the joint.  The 
threads are a little bumpy but the nut travels the full distance.  This 
is missing the ball at the end of the screw no comment!)  This ain't 
minty but these guys sure have been few and far between of late.  $18.00

good and are lightly cross hatched on the insides.  The joint is good 
with just a little wiggle.  The handles have some scuffs from when this

for the most part.  Note the decorative file work on the edges.  There 
are some noticeable dings on the top and some light ones on the sides. 
The face has some light dings, cut marks, and a few tiny chips around 
the edge.  The peen is good.  There is a hole, about halfway between the 
eye and the peen, why I have not a clue.  The handle is the original 
oval shaped one.  That has some thin checks under the eye, and the usual 
dings and stains but it's solid.  The head wiggles a touch but it ain't 
going anywhere.  This guy does have some age to it, but it has made the 
journey better than most.  $22.00

but nothing too bad.  The head has some staining.  The larger face has 
some very light frosting and dings.  That one is not magnetized.  The

high, and this weighs 5 1/2 oz unboxed.  Marked as shown.  This is in

these guys.  I did clean some sharp mushrooming off of both faces and 
dragged a file over the face as well.  They both still have some dings 
but they are better than they were.  The eye is D shaped which is 
different.  The head was also pinned to the handle (which was pretty 
rotten and not worth the effort to save).  This ain't no picture of 
perfection but these guys rarely are.  $18.00

18th Century Deep Round Cut Molding Plane.  The body is 9 1/2" long, the 
iron is 1 11/16" wide, and this weighs 1 lb 1/2 oz unboxed.  The cut is 
just about 180 degrees.  Not signed as to the maker, there is a user 
mark on the toe.  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 dings and there is a chip off 
of the top edge of the shelf in front of the mouth.  The mouth looks 
like it was opened a little at some point.  The sole has some scratches 
and dings but nothing too bad.  The wedge is good.  The iron may be a 
replacement, I can't say for sure.  The cutting face has some light 
pitting but most of that is away from the edge.  This ain't minty but 
for the age it sure ain't bad and these older planes have not been 
showing much of late, at least around these here parts.  $37.00

the factory machining marks.  The adjuster works.  Somebody was using 
this guy recently and got a little happy with the oil but that's better

more.  $25.00

Early Hand Forged Tulip Blade Scroll End Spatula Or Peel.  Measuring 12 
7/8" long, the blade is 3 1/2" long, 2 5/16" wide at the edge, and this 
weighs 3 1/4 oz unboxed.  Not signed as to the maker. it's Lehigh-Berks 
County PA in origin. This is in decent condition and was cleaned.  There 
is some overall patina.  The blade has some pitting on both sides.  The 
sides of the blade are beveled slightly.  The shaft has more pitting and 
you can see where it was rolled over in the back.  The delicate scroll 
hook at the end is good.  I gotta say that it has been a long time since 
I last had one of these guys to offer.  $35.00

Early Hand Forged Cross Cut Saw Set or Setting Wrest.  Measuring 8 1/4" 
long, the slots are +/- 1/8" wide, and this weighs 5 1/2 oz unboxed. 
Not signed as to the maker.  This is in decent condition and was 
cleaned.  There is the usual patina found on tools of this age.  The 
slots have some wear but could still be used.  There are some dings and 
a little mushrooming on the one side.  The scroll eye is good other that 
a little pitting.  This ain't the fanciest one of these guys that I have 
had, but they sure ain't been showing up much around here either.  $18.00

Early Hand Forged Conestoga Wagon Water Or Grease Bucket Hook. 
Measuring 5 5/8" long, about 2 3/16" wide across the hooks, and this 
weighs 1 lb 1/4 oz unboxed.  Not signed as to the maker.  This is in 
decent condition and was cleaned.  There is some patina but nothing too 
bad.  Both hooks have a little wear on the inside but that's an 
occupational hazard with these guys.  The jump lips are good.  These 
guys sure ain't been showing up much of late, at least around these here 
parts.  $18.00

Early Hand Forged Wrought Iron Rope Or Chain Hook.  Measuring 4 1/4" 
long, 1 15/16" wide across the tip of the hook, and this weighs 8 3/4 oz 
unboxed.  Not signed as to the maker.  This is in decent condition and 
was cleaned.  There is the usual patina found on items of this age. 
There is a little wear to the inside of the hook and eye but there is 
plenty of iron left.  The eye has some crusty but it's good to go.  That 
was never forged tight.  I gotta say that this is a neat looking one of 
these guys.  $17.00

Early Hand Forged Belt Axe.  Measuring 14 1/8" overall, the head is 5 
3/8" long (across the center), the edge is 3 1/4" high (straight 
across), and this weighs 2 lbs 12 1/4 oz unboxed.  Not signed as to the 
maker.  This is in good shape for the age and was lightly cleaned. 
There is a little patina on the head but nothing too bad there.  The 
edge is good and sharp.  The handle is old but probably not the original 
one.  That is good and the head is on tight setting here but things do 
loosen up in shipping.  These guys sure ain't getting any easier to find 
and one in this condition even harder.  $35.00

.Tony,


Re: The wrench stamped D.G.R.M


DRGM stands for Deutsches Reichsgebrauchsmuster (German: German Reich Registered
Design)

It essentially means what we in the USA refer to as a "Design Patent" of
national scope.  (As opposed to a provincial design patent.) The term was
replaced with Deutsches Bundesgebrauchsmuster' (D.B.G.M.) in 1952.

I learn something new from the Porch almost every day!
