G. W. Denison Rosewood Plow PlaneG. W. Denison Rosewood Plow Plane  This Rosewood plow is in overall pretty nice condition. It dates from the last quarter of the 19th century. The collector put a coat of clear lacquer on it. The inner lock nuts do not exactly match. Other than that I see no issues.

J. R. Wood Lafayette Ind. Ivory Tipped Plow PlaneJ. R. Wood Lafayette Ind. Ivory Tipped Plow Plane  The stamp on the nose is probably an owner stamp given the position / orientation. Plus the fact that he is not listed in Elliots book, and Google does not recognize him.

Two tips have gone missing. The top of the tote has a brass piece that might be original or is an early and interesting repair. At a minimum, it has been on there a long long time.  Pretty nice all in all.

"B" Plane 9 3/4 Tailed Block Plane"B" Plane 9 3/4 Tailed Block Plane  This Birmingham Tool Co. "B"  Plane 9 3/4 block plane w rear handle is in very nice condition.  The turned wooden rear handle is an odd shape, not being round, and may be replaced.  Birmingham Tool Co. was a major "wannabe" competitor of Stanley's back near 1900. In addition to their line of well known all metal planes, they also offered a line of planes similar to Stanley's typical line of bench planes. It has been said that their naming them B planes was an effort to play off of Leonard Baileys name. Note the few subtle differences from a typical Stanley plane. Far rarer and harder to find than the Stanley equivalent. Clean and Nice.

Steers Patent Fore Plane w/ Rosewood SoleSteers Patent # 306 Fore Plane w/ Rosewood Sole   This is the nicest example of one of these I have ever had.  Typically the rosewood inlaid in the sole is all torn up and has missing portions.  Not so here, the inlaid strips are near perfect.  It had the proper marked Jennings cutter in it.  The tote and front knob are solid and nice.  No apologies.   Clean and Nice.

Hardt Patent Block PlaneHardt Patent Block Plane  A very rare block plane in super condition.  Lots of original japanning with no chips, cracks, or other damage.  The patent # for this unusual plane is 502906 and it comes up with a Google Search.  Louis John Hardt of Yuba City California was granted his patent for a plane design on August 8th 1893.  In addition to the block plane offered here, he also made bench and jointer size planes as well.  It is not known how many sizes were offered or how many were produced, so few have ever turned up.  There are just a handful of the block planes that have ever been found.

It is a very distinctive design where the front end of the plane moves making the throat opening larger or smaller.  Another odd feature is that he utilized Sargent parts including the cutters, lever caps, and in this case the iron cap on his own castings.  It has be theorized that there was just one production run in about 1893 explaining the relative rarity of the plane.  There is a more complete write-up and details in Roger Smiths first PATAMPIA book.   Very Nice!!

c.1860 - 1870 Mystery Jack  Planec. 1860 Prototype / Mystery Cast Iron Jack Plane  This unusual plane is a mystery. I see no maker marks. It is some interesting design aspects.

The frog design looks a lot like Stanley's type 3 planes or Leonard Bailey's Victor style or line of planes. Attached at both sides instead of just in the center.  It has a nice Moulson cutter in it.

The lever cap is cast, hollow in the back and has a distinctive look to it with coves in the casting top. Also note how the handle (cracked at base) is dovetailed and slides into its position at the base.   The front knob is 2 pieces, and the course screw to attach it is fixed to the body.  The body is a great casting that was japanned. A nice example of an early and probably unique plane. Nice!!

Worrall Patent Transitional Jointer PlanLowell Plane & Tool Co. 1857 Worrall Patent 26" Transitional Jointer Plane   This early 26" closed handle patented jointer plane is in nice overall condition.

Note that the top plate with patent info does not extend all the way to the end. According to Roger Smith it is an earlier version. Roger Smith calls this style the first transitional that was made / manufactured and that it was the design that inspired Leonard Bailey just a few years later. In addition to the patent info on the top casting, it is also stamped on the nose of the plane, and the cutter is also properly marked.

This early Worrall patent transitional plane has a great look to it and is a nice example of one of the earliest American Patented planes that can be found. The color change on the bottom is a stain. It is not soft, rotten or other damage. Nice, Early & Different!!

Leonard Bailey's Planes
Victor / Defiance / Vertical Posts / Split Frames

Leonard Bailey produced the Victor line of planes after he left Stanley and struck out on his own.  He produced this line of planes for approx 18 years beginning in 1875.  The history of that endeavor and his interactions with Stanley during this period are documented in Roger Smiths books.   



# 1 1/4 Tailed Victor Block Plane by Leonard Bailey & Co.# 1 1/4 Tailed Victor Block Plane by Leonard Bailey & Co.   The Victor #1 1/4 had a cast iron tail piece / handle.   The Victor #1 & #2 had flat sides, adjustable throats and the cutter adjustment.  The sides were flat & excelsior style.  These block planes could be had in different finishes as the 1 3/4 or the 2 3/4.  The bodies are drilled to accept a  rear handle which would change it to a 1 1/4 w/ rear handle or 1 1/2 with handle and nickel trim.  The same would apply to the 7" Victor planes where a  #2 becomes a 2 1/4 or 2 1/2. with a tail piece  Walters dates all of them as 1875 thru 1888, the period when Leonard Bailey had left Stanley and struck out on his own.  If you find that confusing, it is, and you need a copy of Walters book, a type study, and some reprints of old catalogs to sort it all out. 

The cutter has lots of life left and the adjuster performs as it should.  Note how good the cutter logo is.   The paint on the plane is 90% or better and original. There is no rust or pitting to speak of.  The rear handle looks great but has been declared a recast by some experts.  The collector did not think so when he bought it, and paid dearly for it.

Leonard Bailey¬†# 3 Victor Smooth PlaneLeonard Bailey Victor # 3 Smooth Plane  This Bailey Victor # 3 size smooth plane is in nice original condition noting the cutter is not proper.  Leonard Bailey's "Victor" line planes were produced from 1875 thru 1888 after Leonard Bailey had left Stanley's employ and before he went back to work for them.  The Victor line of planes was a great design and well received in the marketplace. Roger Smiths books on patented planes covers the history in great detail, and is worth the read.

This plane has not been fiddled with or over cleaned. There is little rust or pitting on the body and sole. The throat is good. No cracks, chips or other damage. The adjuster works properly. The cutter is later and with the center slot makes the adjuster inoperable. There is approx. 80% of the original black japanning.

Antique Leonard Bailey Little Victor # 50 & 51 Block PlanesLeonard Bailey "Little Victor" # 50 & 51 Block Planes   Three different variants on the theme.  Each has a different blade lock type.  On the left the cutter tightener is a looped screw.  I believe this is correct for early models.  The next one in the middle has a star wheel to tighten the cutter.  On the right same idea plus the adjustment can be locked with the brass knurled nut below the star.

# 100 Tailed Block PlaneSargent No. 105 Toy Size Tailed Block Plane   Cutter is unmarked. There is no markings on the plane body. Identical to a Stanley # 100 tailed block plane, but I believe it is made by Sargent given the exaggerated hump of the side rail.  That would make it a #105.  Given the lack of marks it was probably sold to a different retailer or regional hardware store of the era.   Nice!!

I lightly cleaned it. The are no structural issues and little to no rust or pitting. Full length, proper logo, good cutter. 85% or better of the original japanning.  Great knob & handle. Nice enough for any collection. Nice!!

G. G. Co. Good Grip, San Gabriel, Ca. No. 101 Size Plane w/ Bakelite Tail / Handle G. G. Co. Good Grip, San Gabriel, CA. No. 101 Size Plane w/ Bakelite Tail / Handle Most of these tiny planes that turn up are unmarked as this one is. Those that are marked have just a stamp on the cutter. It has been years since I have had or seen one. They use to turn up here in CA years ago given they were made here. Kind of a unique design, and the choice of Bakelite as the material for the tail / handle is certainly different. Some missing paint, but otherwise nice. A cute, and hard to find little plane.
