JA shoulder plane # 1
This is one I got from Jennie many years ago. Now a prime example came with this tool shipment, so I added that one to my collection and will sell this one. Replacement oak wedge, I marked it with “P” = width of plane is about 15/16″ and length c. 8″. Some wear on the heel where someone struck it with a hammer to loosen the iron. It will clean up well. Look under your bench for some rosewood scraps and make a new wedge.
JA brace # 3
Pexto #10, didn’t measure the sweep. Is it 10″?
JA brace # 6 is a modern Stanley, plastic handles. Great condition.
JA reamer # 2
A small, hand-reamer. Unfortunately also has a twist to it. Nice old handle, probably original.
ALL THE TOOLS BELOW HERE ARE SOLD
JA brace # 1 SOLD
a Spofford brace, sweep is quite large. An 18″ sweep on this one. This one is marked “Fray”
$ 50 SOLD
JA brace # 2 SOLD
Can’t find a mark on this Spofford brace. Another large sweep, this time 14″. Handle is repaired w copper binding, instead of the usual pewter. But what do I know, maybe it was always this way. I doubt it.
$ 50 SOLD
JA brace # 4 SOLD
Bell System, 10″ sweep, Universal chuck. (next brace is the same thing, different size) I see these were made by Stanley for the phone company. when there was only one…both of these are marked “Yankee” on their heads. I see pristine clean examples asking for over $100 on the web; but that’s crazy. You can brush these up, I’m out of time in November.
JA brace # 5. - SOLD
Same as before, Bell System, but smaller sweep. this time 8″ . JA has kindly noted again that this one has a Universal chuck. Means it will hold many styles of bits easily.
$45 - SOLD
Now back to some Spofford chucks, these are all-metal braces. One single-ton, and then four smaller ones. All want a cleaning.
JA brace # 7, 10″ sweep Spofford. SOLD
Then there’s four that are close enough that I can’t tell the difference. smaller sweep, 8″. Four braces so I will call them JA braces #s 8-11.
JA brace # 7 = $30 - SOLD
JA braces #8-11; $25 each - ALL FOUR SOLD
JA reamer # 1 - SOLD
A large reamer, forged. Has a bit of twist in the shank. But should still work OK.
$30 - SOLD
JA shoulder plane # 2 - SOLD
This one’s a project. But it could become something special. It’s big, 1 1/2″ wide, about 8 1/2″ long. Is missing all its wooden infills. Somenone made an oak piece to wedge the iron into the stock.
$45 - SOLD
