White, Wilkinson, Witherby, Maier, Marples,  and others will be found under the proper headings / links below.  Stanley Chisels including their famous line of Everlasting or Everlast chisels and the Stanley #720 & 750 model chisels  will be found on the Misc Stanley Tool Page. 

These famous edge tool maker names ring with nostalgia and fond memories of the old days when quality was the standard and American pride of manufacture carried over into the things made here.

Vintage and antique tools are popular not only because of the superior quality, but often times these antique edge tools can be had in fine condition for a fraction of what is being charged  for quality tools made today.  There is no comparison to the garbage coming here from China and sold in every retail establishment no matter the name you see on it.

3 1/2 James Swan Slick Carpenter / Timber Framer SlickSlicks are basically large chisels and oftentimes large framing chisels are mis-identified as slicks.  In general they can range in width from 2" up 6" or so with those large examples being very hard to find.  Most are socket style, but there are also tang slicks that can be found.  Occasionally a gouge style slick turns up, and even less often crank neck ones appear.  Names like Wilkinson, Barton, L. & I.  J. White, Witherby, James Swan and more come to mind as the premier makers of the 19th century.

Spoke Shaves / Beaders & Routers
* * * Click Heading to see Items * * *

Beaders and routers are used for shaping edges and are often easier to use than setting up the router or other electric tool.  Routers ca be used to from or clean rabbits and dados with little fuss or muss.  Some are craftsman made, other later versions were manufactured by the big names in the business.  Some like the Windsor Beader were patented and came out in several versions over the years. There are hundreds of different designs and styles of spoke shaves available.  Stanley offered the largest and most job specific models.Windsor Patent Beaders

Antique & Collectible
Hand Saws / Drills / Braces & Bits

The old adage about they do not make them like they used to holds especially true for antique & vintage hand saws, edge tools, and antique drills and augers.  The art of saw making and metallurgy were at the height of their quality back in the mid to late 1800's and into the early 1900's. These vintage tools make for great collectibles and / or useable vintage tools. 

Saw makers like Henry Disston, Atkins and others were putting forth a product that can not be equaled.  Today you can expect plastic, and Taiwan or China labels unless paying a premium for custom tools coming from small cottage businesses or makers.  These vintage saws and edge tools are a testament to the quality and sense of pride that the phrase "Made in America" use to carry and can be a bargain to boot. 

And they work! and are still here 100 or so years later. 

The saws listed should be considered straight.  None are kinked or bent so as to be unusable or in need of straightening.  Some are sharp, some will need to be re-sharpened.

Drilling holes has been a task since the dawn of time.  Braces and drills have evolved over time and each have many different styles and designs to choose from.  There is a book on American Patented Braces by Ron Pearson and finding some of the harder ones can be a challenge.  They make for a great display once one begins to appreciate the differences and thought that went into the different designs. Others make for great users.   Yankee 100 Drill Set

I have seen a few collections of Beam boring machines and they can be very impressive.  It seems there are a few  common versions around that were mass produced, and then a very few models that were patented and made in very limited supply.  Some with just a few known.  The Millers Falls model is the most popular with today's timber framers and users, although outfits like James Swan and a few others made a nice usable product.
