Miscellaneous Tools For Sale



Interesting Shipwrights Serving Mallet.
I want to thank the couple of people who wrote to inform me that this is not a caulking mallet, as I originally thought, but is actually a shipwright's serving mallet. It's not used for striking at all, rather, it's used for "worming, parceling and serving" rope on a ship. It is a well-made mallet made of what I believe is Lignum. It's about 4lbs overall. The head has a groove at the top you can see in the photos.

Small 5in Drawknife.
This drawknife looks early and hand-forged to me. It's marked with a maker's name I can't quite make out. The handles are tight and the blade is decent. It's an interesting, early tool that's still usable if you tune it up

Well-Made Gunstock Scraper.
This is a spokeshave-like scraper commonly called a gunstock scraper but useful in any situation you'd use a spokeshave. It's very well made, it looks like a bitch stock to me with a brass blade fixture and a 1 3/4in wide blade.It's perfectly usable and quite useful.

Eclipse no. 77 Saw Set.
This is a very good working example of this high quality pliers-type sawset. It has a double-action clamp/plunger just like the Stanley 42X where the clamp first holds the plate in place before the hammer sets it. This is the medium-sized example with a plunger suited for backsaws and handsaws from about 14PPI to 6PPI. It's in very good condition and works perfectly.

Stearns Jointer Gauge Mint IOB.
This jointer gauge was made by E.C. Stearns in Syracuse, NY. The gauge clamps to the side of a metallic bench plane and allows for the user to plane accurate angles. It's not terribly efficient when planing to 90 degrees, but if you are making a coopered joint or anything off-square it's pretty useful. The box has a good label and reinforced corners, but one tear.

10in Drawknife.
This drawknife was made for the Belknap Hardware Company of Louisville, KY and sold under the "PineKnot" brand. It was likely made by one of the larger edge tool makers of the era and custom-branded for Bellknap as they were not edge tool makers themselves. This drawknife is in good condition. It has one small patch of pitting on the back that you can see in the photos. The bevel is in good shape- no nicks or chips, but not sharp. The handles are perfect. It'll sharpen up easily enough and make a solid worker

Unmarked Roller Honing jig.
This honing guide will hold a blade up to 2 3/4in wide. It has a sprung joint which is adjusted by means of a knurled screw. The adjuster alters the angle at which the blade is presented to the grinding wheel or stone. This model was made by Stanley and General. This one is unmarked. These are handy if you use a big foot-driven grinding wheel- the roller rides on the wheel while the tool is being sharpened. It's one of the few jigs that will work in such a uuse case..

Craftsman-made Drawknife.
This drawknife is clearly hand-made. It has a 6 1/2in blade. The handles are leather with bolts holding them on. It's a very comfortable design that I haven't seen before. The blade is slightly curved as you'd hope. One side has some bad pitting or scale from where it was forged. The rest of the blade is clean and decent- quite sharp. Interesting and usable.

Massive & Excellent DR Barton Drawknife.
This is a truly massive drawknife with a beautiful laminated blade 8in wide and a full 2 1/2in deep. It's a double-bevel edge with beautifully made handles. It's clean and free of pitting. The edge has a few dings that will need grinding. It's almost certainly originally a cooper's tool but it'll work for any sort of large scale work.

Scarce North Brothers 20-3 Spiral Screwdriver.
This screwdriver was made for manufacturing where there was only a need to drive screws. The spiral shaft only works one way. Just in case, there is a provision to remove screws using the ratchet mechanism if the slider is moved to the left, but it's not something the tool excels at. This is the largest of the three sizes North Brother offered. It's in excellent working order and comes with three bits..
