More tools to identify....

Again, let me start by saying thank you.... this is really helping me. And I would rather enter information correctly rather than be either guessing or it not getting logged.

Thanks.

I'll let some of the other guys have some of the fun (cause a couple of them I don't know ) and won't guess them all, the first one is a hand scraper. The 3rd one is a tool I personally use several times a week, it is a handsaw tooth setter, most likely turn of the century. I have one very similar to that one even.

The fourth is a YANKEE No. 30 North Bros MFG Co. PHILA. PA spiral screwdriver

I removed the pix of what we've identified..... the last one has Goodell-Pratt Company stamped on it.

Don't remove the pictures of the identified . What if someone else has a similar tool they need IDed ? We have our own little "museum" going here of shared knowledge and pictures. Know what I mean ? You are doing your job, with our help, "logging" these tools. Don't make it a one way street, kinda takes the fun out of it for us.

"Handsaw tooth setter??? Absolutely no clue..... and my mind goes "and you need one of these????" ...100 years ago every (even 50 years ago many still did) carpenter/woodworker needed one and files to keep their saws sharp. I am a pro sharpener and restore/sharpen old tools like saws/planes...that is why I use one so frequently.

The first one looks like a marking gauge, #2 not a clue, #3 looks like a saw fence. But That is only my opinion.

Sorry, didn't think of that... will re-post.

This was 'identified to me' as a hand/floor scraper:


This was 'identified to me' as a handsaw tooth setter:


This one I found on the internet by searching the info on the item as: YANKEE No. 30 North Bros MFG Co. PHILA. PA U.S.A with various pattent dates stamped on the spiral screwdriver.

The 'marking gauge' has Stanley on the back, does that change your opinion?

We've had one of the saw setters around here for years, just didn't know what it was. No that I know what it is, I can't find it. The old freezer it was in got scrapped last fall and who knows where it got to, may have got scrapped too.

Bummer, don't we all hate when we finally find out what an item is used for, only to find it has gone missing.

The original #3 picture is a fence, but for a hand plane. Screws to the side of the hand plane. Used to help plane the edge of a board to be square to the face. Not as easy as it seems.
