Antique & Vintage Woodworking Planes by

Millers Falls / Winchester / Sargent / Union Tool / Ohio Tool Co.
E. C. Simmons / Keen Kutter & Others


E. C. Simmons Hardware Co. / Keen Kutter Woodworking Planes



Keen Kutter / Simmons Hardware K 9 1/2 - 9 3/4 Tailed Block PlaneKeen Kutter / Simmons Hardware K 9 1/2 - 9 3/4 Tailed Block Plane This unusual Keen Kutter tailed block plane is marked on the lateral K 9 1/2, but I would imagine with the auxiliary tail it should be called off as a K 9 3/4.  Given the style of the cap, and the round handy features on the side rails I believe this was made by Ohio Tool Co. one of the several companies that Simmons Hardware Co of St Louis MO. used to make their different lines of tools and planes for them which they then branded with their famous trade name Keen Kutter.

The overall condition is fine with well over 90% of the original japanning, and no rust, pitting, or other condition issues.  It has a nice long properly marked cutter as well.  A pretty rare piece in the scheme of things.  One would expect to see 100 Stanley 9 3/4 planes for every one of these that turns up.  An opportunity ready for the collection.

Keen Kutter / Simmons Hardware K 5 1/2 Large Jack Plane (Bedrock 605 1/2)Keen Kutter / Simmons Hardware K 5 1/2 C Corrugated Bottom Large Jack Plane (Bedrock 605 1/2 C)  Simmons Hardware marketed their line of planes under the Keen Kutter name and over the years had several different tool producers make planes for them.  At one point they contracted with Stanley to make their planes based on Stanley's Bedrock plane design.  These Stanley made planes were denoted as the K series. They came in sizes K2 thru K8.  These bedrock like planes have all the same features of early Stanley Bedrocks including the milled frog and external frog adjuster.   It really is a superior design, then and now.

This example is in good condition.  The rear handle is Rosewood and it has a proper low front knob.  It has been lightly cleaned.  Tuned and set up properly this will make for a great user at a fraction of the cost of an early Stanley 605 1/2 or some new remake offered today.  Very Nice!!

Sargent 507 Rabbet Block PlaneSargent 507 Rabbet Block Plane   Great condition.  The 507 is a better design than the Stanley 140 Rabbeting Block Plane in one way, but because of that feature with the opening on both sides it is a weaker design and is oftentimes is found cracked in the cheek area on either side.  This one is damage free and still has 90% or more of the japanning.  The cutter has plenty of life left in it as well.  A nice example.

Ohio Tool Co.



Ohio Tool Co. 01 Smooth PlaneOhio Tool Co. 01 Smooth Plane    The Ohio # 01 is a far rarer plane than the popular Stanley # 1 version of these small planes.  These rare planes do not come to market very often.

This Ohio # 01 smooth plane is in fine overall condition.  The World Logo cutter is long and nice.  There is no rust or pitting to speak of.  The original japanning is about 95% with minor losses near the handle.  The solid back lever cap has no pitting or rust and is very nice.  The throat is good.  The dark rosewood handle and knob are nice.  The collector applied a coat of clear lacquer as was his custom, and a practice more generally accepted back when he did it in the 80's.  It will clean off.   A super nice example of a rare plane that will be the highlight of any plane or tool collection.

Ohio Tool Co. #07 Jointer PlaneOhio Tool Co. #07 Jointer Plane   A good user.  This plane has been repainted.  It is structurally sound with no major condition issues.  It has a proper near full length tapered cutter.  The handle is one of those hard rubber things found on planes used in schools.  This one is marked DE or Diamond Edge which I think would be wrong for an Ohio plane.  There is a crack in the base of it, but it is solid with no sign it is going to get worse or break.  The brass adjuster nut is odd as well.  Never seen one set up for a wrench, but it looks factory.  It is what it is, and priced right.

Woodworking Planes & Tools



Winchester Arms Co. No. 3075 Scraper PlaneWinchester Arms Co. No. 3075 Scraper Plane   Winchester Repeating Arms Co foray into the tool market was quick and eventful.  They came close to going bankrupt over it.

Winchester did not actually make their line of tools but rather contracted out their orders to other tool makers like Stanley, Ohio Tool, Sargent, and others and then relied on their name recognition, reputation and slogans like "Good As The Gun" to succeed.  That was not enough and Winchester pretty quickly got out of the tool and hardware business.     Nice!!
