An incredible collection of tools from every trade and craft imaginable. From the1600s to the 1900s; from incredibly rare and unique to everyday tools.

Stanley No. 35 smooth plane, my first antique tool.

Lot #400 (Sale Order 400 of 325)

Stanley No. 35 smooth plane, the first antique tool I ever bought and the one that led to 20,000 other tools over the next 28 years. Purchased at Pacific Auction, Longmont, CO, in the fall of 1981 for $7.50. It looked OK to me then, but it has a broken casting, the top of the tote is broken off, the chip breaker has chips all along its leading edge, and someone used it so much the plane had to be "re-soled" with a quarter-inch piece of beech. It is a fairly early one with the eagle trademark on the toe and the patent dates inside the brass adjustment nut. But it rates a weak Fair because of its problems. ($10-20).
