Miscellaneous Tools For Sale

Excellent Adjustable Beech Spokeshave.
This shave has no maker's mark but is well-made and in excellent working order. It's 10.5in long with a 3in wide blade. The mouth has a brass wear plate in front of the blade. The blade itself is clean and sharp with plenty of life left to it and zero pitting. It is adjusted by means of two threaded brass thumbscrews. Unlike many examples I find, this one has working adjusters with good threads. It's an excellent example ready to put to work

This is one of Stanley's better spokeshave designs with an adjustable mouth that makes it easy to quickly change the depth of cut.

The blade is good and clean. It's a good, usable example of this useful shave.

Millers Falls no. 61A Spiral Ratchet Screwdriver.
This is the medium size in Millers Falls' lineup of spiral ratchet screwdrivers. It has an unusual chuck design with a contoured grip to protect the user's hand. Not all of these I find have this guard so I imagine it was a custom order. This one works smoothly with no damage or undue wear. It comes with an assortment of bits that fit this particular model.

Beech Hollow Tool Handle.
This hollow tool handle is unmarked. The handle includes ten bits including a gouge, saw, gimlet, awl, bradawl, screwdriver, etc. It also has a small hammer head which won't fit in the head. The split two jaw chuck will hold just about anything with a small square shank which makes it handy to hold small files, etc.

Small Cross-Peen Hammer.
This hammer has two cross-peen faces like a tack hammer, but not quite the same. When in doubt, it's probably a leather-working tool. It's in excellent condition all around.

Vintage Planemakers Float.
This is a rare vintage planemaker's edge float. It's 12in long overall. Each tooth is skewed in a direction, one left, one right, one left, etc. It's seen a lot of use and might be more of an artifact at this point than a working tool. Still, it's very early and a very rare tool to find.
