I hope it ends up being worthwhile.

I've been watching the auction in the below link for a couple of weeks. I'm a little surprised I won.

I got:
a matched set of Disston 12 panel saws,
a host of brace bits -irwin and jennings (i really wanted those),
a mess of chisels and gouges which i can put to work right away,
a No. 12 scraper plane,
three eggbeater drills (don't really need these, might sell)
what looks like a Disston 4 plate and back (no handle) - not sure what i will do with that,
a carpenter's chest
some ratcheting screwdrivers
what looks like a Starrett combination square with a centering head
and more

take a look here, unless you live in southern new england, then don't ever look at this site since its a great place to find estate sale tool scores, on occassion:


Furniture Table



There were several lots, including one with 9 miscellaneous planes plus a bunch of 'stuff'; a lot of planes including a 40 1/2, 12, 4, 5 and 6, plus a sargent 62 router plane, all of which went for $90. I'd have liked to get that too, but had limited funds and the things i would have been after were the router and 40 1/2. I have a stanley 27 so i guess i didn't really need the 6.

I wasn't confident i could sell the rest to make it a good deal (plus the risk of not selling for a good price). There was also a 45 in box with a whole lot of cutters and a complete 78 in the same lot. That looked collector quality to me and ended up pricing me out. In the end, with the limited time i have to work wood, i figured I'd spend all of my allotted time for a day just setting up the 45 without actually doing anything with it. and i have 3/4 of a 78 already. I just need the depth gauge and screw, cutter and cap.

There were 6 molding planes that went for $34, but I was not confident on the condition.

Anyway, in addition to sharing my excitement at actually getting this stuff, i want to know, how'd I do?

p.s. if you see something in the pictures you'd be interested in purchasing, pm me. I bit off slightly more than I can chew and would like to partly finance the tools I really want! - But that's not the purpose of the post, really I'm just way excited.

I guess I should have said that I sunk $175 into it. I thin you can see that in the link but I don't particularly like following links from wwt since I usually read on my phone. This is my biggest single purchase of tools.

I've got hungry eyes on those in-cannel gouges :laughing:
Thanks. They are buck bros. I don't know if you can see in the pic but it looks like one has lost it's temper halfway up. I'm hoping the blue is from some other cause but ill find out eventually I suppose. How would that happen so far up? There are two in cannel gouges as well. They all have a decent grind but I will at some point have to figure out how to sharpen them. I know there are prior threads on that floating around here.

Antique tool Iron Tool Metal Hand tool



Antique tool Tool Metalworking hand tool Hammer Hand tool

No idea way this tool is. Obviously is struck on the end. The pincers open and close by the lever with a spring of some kind. Blacksmithing tool?

Ditto on the white on next to it. Any ideas ?

There's this really nice disston backsaw plate with a nice strong etch and all of the nuts and medallion. At first I thought I could take my new rasps and make a handle but then I noticed the kink in the toe. Not sure if I will sell, get fixed or what. It otherwise looks to be in great shape. I could use another backsaw. What would you do?

White one is a basin wrench.

First picture is a nail puller. Great too to have. Crescent still makes a cast iron one with a slide hammer. The jaws are driven into the wood and when you pull down in a prying motion it grabs the nail and pulls it up.

The basin wrench was already id'd.
