Update 2018-01-18 Hi Folks. I put up a fairly small update of tools tonight. I had the misfortune of losing my truck again today.. this time to a broken driveshaft. So.. I spent most of the day waiting for a tow instead of working. I am still in winter clear-out mode here trying to get my storage area empty before the start of tool season next month. In the process I am digging up all sorts of interesting stuff you will see on the list in the coming weeks. As always, thanks for looking! --Josh

Molding Planes For Sale



C. Nurse, London Flat Ovolo Molding Plane.
This plane was made by the Charles Nurse & Co, a top-quality London maker in the late 1800s. .It's a nice clean plane with only one flaw- a small chip in the sole in front of the mouth. It's still usable, but not pristine.. It's a very easy plane to use thanks to the wide fence and depth stop . It's also a useful profile to decorate the edge of almost anything from a shelf to to a drawer front. An excellent example to use

Nice 1/2in Side Bead Molding Plane by Walker, York.

The blade is still clean and free of pitting, though it needs to be ground and honed. 1/2in is the most common size I find- this is a good usable one.

Interesting Summers Varvill 1/2in Side Bead Molding Plane.
This plane was made by Varvill between 1840-1867. It's a high quality plane made in York, England. It's interesting in that I'm almost positive it's not beech. There is no ray fleck, the color is off, as is the grain. I'm not sure what it could be made of. The boxed quirk is also not made of boxwood, but some other dense hardwood. It's in very good conditon all around and should be a fine worker. An interesting plane made by one of the top makers of the time.

3/4in Compassed Rabbet Plane.
This plane is marked "PARSONS" a mark that does not exactly match any of those found in Goodman nor in AWP-IV. I suspect it's American based on where it was found and its style. It could be one of the Parsons listed in AWP-IV but with a previously unknown mark variant. Either way it's in exceptionally clean and fine condition. The blade is bedded at a very high angle intended for difficult timbers. An interesting plane in excellent condition.

Awesome Quirk Ovolo and Astragal Molding Plane by Stokoe.
This plane is around 200 years old- George Stokoe was a planemaker in London from approx. 1811-1833. It's in amazing conditon and perfectly usable. The plane cuts an especially curvy quirk ovolo and astragal 1 1/2in wide by 7/8in deep. The blade is lapped clean on the back and the bevel is recently honed. It's been used a bit and the working area near the astragal that takes the most use needs to be touched up a bit to make up for wear. The plane is otherwise excellent and remarkable considering its ago.
