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).

A “knork” for use by Civil War amputees.

Lot #409 (Sale Order 409 of 325)

A KNORK is a combination eating utensil that blends the features of a knife and a fork into one implement. Designed for use by amputees. Typically found as post-Civil War relics, because there were so many veterans of that war who had lost a hand or arm, but an idea that was probably around as early as the American Revolution. This one is obviously missing one of its three tines, otherwise in Very Good condition. ($50-75).

Taintor Framing Tool, 1910 patent.

Lot #429 (Sale Order 429 of 325)

TAINTOR FRAMING TOOL / PAT'D. MAY 10. 10. Charles Taintor's first patent for a tool whose purpose was to incorporate "in one instrument a tool which will comprise all of the uses of the steel square and of the bevel and which, when folded, will be compact and occupy but small space." From the looks of it, I'd say he was successful. It folds up to a compact 1½" x 13". He did get another patent in 1912 (#1,029,774) for improvements to the first, by adding more scales & tables. Actually, I think this one incorporates all those extras. Looks like it could do just about anything. The 2 arms adjust independently of one another. Also has a depth scale of sorts that slides out the bottom. Good. ($125-250).

Northup's Patent 1891 saw-setting machine.

PATENT MAR. 24, 1891, L.L. Northup’s Patent No. 448,742 for a hand-cranked machine to set the teeth on a band saw blade. It's the first, and maybe only, patent for a machine that sets the teeth while the blade is installed on the saw. Each revolution of the handle sets a tooth in one direction, advances the blade one tooth, then sets the next tooth in the opposite direction. As for rarity, Todd Friberg's Patented American Saw Sets rates it as “never seen.” This one is mounted on a board for display, so you’ll obviously have to remove it before you can use the machine.

Hawes' Patent 1819 carpenter square.

Lot #454 (Sale Order 454 of 325)

HAWES' PATENT / $3.00 on a 14" x 24" carpenter's framing square. The mark, which is admittedly light, refers to Silas Hawes' patent of December 15, 1819 for a process that produced laminated steel squares that are tapered in thickness from the corner to the ends. You can see evidence of the laminations on the back side. Three bucks for a square was an awful lot of money in those days. I guess they were pretty firm on the price, otherwise they wouldn't have stamped it into the metal. It's more than what most carpenter's squares are worth today. You'll drive the wheels off your car looking for another example like this one. Hand-stamped grads, of course. Worn, with a dark patina, but still readable & useable. ($75-150).

“Champion” Mortising Machine, 1912 patent (another one).

Lot #485 (Sale Order 485 of 325)

CHAMPION MORTISER / J. LEUKART MFG. / COLUMBUS OHIO / PATD SEPT 10 1912. Mortising machines like this one became popular in the early 1900s for drilling the mortises for door locks. They lost favor in the early 1920s, when electric tools began to replace them. This machine is adjustable for length and depth of cut, and the width of cut is determined by the bit diameter; included are 3/4" and 1" bits. In use, the bit drops down incrementally after it makes each forward and backward pass. It takes about 3 minutes of hard cranking to cut a mortise with the machine. This one has an iron flywheel that assists in maintaining momentum. Original working condition, Good+. ($250-350).

THE PENINSULAR HAND TOOL / PROPERTY OF THE PENINSULAR NOVELTY CO. / BOSTON, MASS. / FAMILY PACKAGE / PATENTED AUG. 11 - 85. All of this & more printed on the box lid. Full instructions on paper label inside lid. As my uncle used to say, "If this don't beat all…" If you haven't collected these before now, seeing this one will make a believer out of you. Linen tag attached to the tool says, "Condition of Sale. This machine is sold and purchased for use only with fasteners made by the Peninsular Novelty Co., to whom the title to said machine immediately reverts upon violation of this condition of sale."

Brass hollow auger-- 1879 patent model or patent prototype?

Lot #576 (Sale Order 576 of 325)

This brass adjustable hollow auger has no maker's marks at all. BUT, it exactly matches the patent drawings & specs of William A. Ives’ hollow auger patent, #222,051, granted November 25, 1879. I believe it is likely a patent model for a few reasons: the finish on the tool, especially the yoke, is not up to the usual quality of production tools of that period; a brass (or bronze) casting would be suspect in a production tool owing to its likelihood to break in use; the tool was purchased from among a group of verified patent models that belonged to one collector; and patent models were often made from brass and other “showy” materials, as is this tool. ...But I could be wrong. Still, it's unique & intriguing. Fine. ($150-350).
