February is underway.  Been kind of a strange winter this year, a bit of 
snow there and here, but lots of rain, and the always fun freezing 
variety as well.  Needless to say, spring can't come soon enough.

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!

Uncommon Stanley No 036 Combination Rule.  This weighs 5 1/2 oz 
unboxed.  This is in decent condition and was cleaned.  The boxwood has 
some staining and a bit of gunk or glue on the one leg.  The brass has 
some stained spots.  The joint has a little play.  The level vial has 
some gunk on it but the vial is good.  The steel rule has some frosting 
and light pitting and the top of the thumb slot is worn so you have to 
work it out from the top.   This sure ain't minty but these guys are a 
lot less common than their Chapin-Stephen's cousins.  $125.00

P S & W Patent 1888 T-Auger Handle.  Measuring 17 3/4" long and this 
weighs 15 3/4 oz unboxed.  Obed Peck of Rowe, MA was granted Pat. No. 
379,877 on Mar. 20, 1888 for the design of this tool.  This is in decent 
condition and was cleaned.  The maple handle has some dings and stains 
and there are thin checks on both sides of the slot but it's solid 
enough to use.  The hole for the tang of the bit was tapered a little on 
the underside.  The screws and nuts work and the plates are good and do 
remove.  This ain't minty but these guys were made to be used and this 
one still can be.  $24.00

been few and far between of late. $20.00

condition and were cleaned.  The Dunlap is clean on the back and overall 
other than a few dots on the socket.  The Worth has some overall 
staining and a scuff on the back.  The edge on that will need some 
work.  Both sockets are good.  These will need handles, I don't have any 
here that fit. These ain't perfect but they sure ain't bad and they are 
quality tools.  $19.00

Early Hand Forged Denglestock PA Dutch Scythe Sharpening Anvil & 
Hammer.  The denglestock is  6 1/16" long, the face is 1 3/16" wide,  
the hammer is 9 7/16" overall, the head is 3 5/16" long, the face is 
15/16" square, the peen is 1 1/16" wide, and they weigh 1 lb 10 oz 
unboxed.   Not signed as to the maker.  Now what's a denglestock (also 
spelled dengelstock and a bunch of other ways as well), you ask?  Well 
them old PA Dutch (German) farmers, being of a thrifty (also know as 
cheap) bunch, instead of grinding down their scythe blades, would stick 
the denglestock into a stump or the top of a fence post and using a 
cross peen hammer (called the dengle of all things) would draw out the 
edge of the blade till it was sharp and then dress it with a stone. 
Pretty neat eh?  These are in decent condition and were cleaned.  The 
denglestock has some overall patina and there is some chipping to the 
iron body on the one side where the steel face is laid.  The spike end 
was sharpened recently.  The head on the hammer has some dings, punch 
marks, and user initials. The face has some dings and the peen is good.  
The handle is old and could be the original one.  That has some chipping 
on the front below the eye and stains and dings.  The head is on tight 
thanks to a big wedge that sticks out a little.  These ain't minty but 
sets like these rarely show up anymore.  $45.00

screw.  The beam is straight and the tip is good.  The head has some

funky up inside the spring area.  The screw has a few light dings but it 
travels the full distance.  The tips and spring are good to go.  This 
ain't perfect but it is a quality older tool.  $22.00

Starrett No 133 15 Inch Engineers & Plumbers Level.  This all weighs 3

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

signed as to the maker.  This is in decent condition and was cleaned.  
The head has some light pitting and dings on the sides.  The face also 
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.  
This ain't perfect but these smaller ones rarely show up much better.

Vintage Rosewood Handle No Leather Rein Trimmer.  Measuring 5 5/8" long, 
1/4" across the outside of the tips, 3/16" across the insides, and this 
weighs 1 oz unboxed.  Not signed as to the maker.  This is in reasonably 
good condition and was cleaned.  The head has some frosting, staining, 
and a few spots of light pitting.  The edge feels good to the touch.  
The rosewood handle has a repaired check under the ferrule and a few 
light dings.  The head won't be coming out anytime soon either.  This 
ain't pristine but I sure don't sell too many of these guys around with 
this kind of handle.  Just saying.  $18.00

Unusual Brace Style Adjustable Wrench.  Measuring 12 1/4" long, the 
sweep is 8". the jaws are 11/16" across when closed, and this weighs 1 
lb 15 1/4 oz unboxed.  Not signed as to the maker.  This is in decent 
condition and was cleaned.  There is some frosting and light patina 
overall.  The jaws have a little wear on the tips.  There is some funky 
inside the chuck.  The chuck looks like it should rotate but I can't get 
it to move.  The grip and pad are painted hardwood. They have some wear 
to the finish and a few dings but both are solid and spin freely.  This 
ain't the fanciest but it is neat older tool.  $24.00

chips around the edge and some frosting and dings.  The peen also has 
some dings.  The square punched eye is good to go. This ain't pretty or 
perfect but it does have some age to it and it will get the job done.

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

Three Vintage Wood Handle Leather Tools.  Top to bottom, there is a No. 
6 edge beveler measuring 5/16" across the outside of the head, 1/8" 
across the inside of the groove, a No. 11 and a No. 18 stitch marking 
wheel, and they weigh 3 1/2 oz unboxed.  Not signed as to the maker.  
These are in decent condition and were cleaned.  The head of the edge 
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

lower one is 5 3/16" long, and they weigh 1 3/4 oz unboxed. Not signed 
as to the maker. These are in decent condition and were cleaned. The 
handle on the upper one is good other than some stains and the chuck 
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 
to come by.  $18.00

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

Blacksmith Hand Forged Slag Chipping Hammer Head.  Measuring 6" long, 1 
1/16" across the straight edge, and this weighs 11 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.  I dressed the pointy 
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

and this one of the better ones.  This is in reasonably condition and 
was not cleaned.  The blade is pristine and sharp. The handle has a 
little chipping on the one one edge and there are a couple of checks to 
the grain at the end but it's solid.  This ain't the fanciest but it 
will get the job done.  $14.00

oil or grease on it from the factory but it's new under that.  The box 
has a little character.  This is the tool to have for cleaning out 
mushrooming on the insides of chisel sockets. I use them all the time 
here.  $16.00

Cowles Mfg. Co. was a  Bridgeport CT maker of ice tools and turncrews 
around 1890.  The mark is faint at the one end but I figured it out.  
This is in decent condition and was cleaned. THe blade has some light 
pitting on both sides.  The tip is slightly rounded but good.  The 
handle has a check under the ferrule and some stains and dings but it's

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

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

the way of patina.  There is just a whisker of mushrooming on the top.

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

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
