Leonard Bailey & Co  # 0 1/2 Victor Block PlaneLeonard Bailey & Co  # 0 1/2 Victor Block Plane   The Victor 0 series of block planes had flared sides. The 0 1/2 was the same w/ an adjuster.  The 00 had nickel trim as did the 000.

The #1 & #2 planes had flat sides, adjustable throats and the cutter adjustment.  The sides were excelsior style.  These 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 with the 7" #2 becoming a 2 1/4 or 2 1/2.  Walters dates all of them as 1875 thru 1888.   If you find that confusing, it is, and you need a copy of Walters book and some reprints of old catalogs to sort it all out.  

This example is an 0 1/2 if I am not mistaken and all correct and nice.  The cutter has lots of life left and the adjuster performs as it should.  These are getting difficult to find.

Seldon Bailey / Bailey Tool Co # 3 Size Defiance Smooth PlaneSeldon Bailey / Bailey Tool Co # 3 Size Defiance Smooth Plane   This line of planes was offered for about 10 years back in the 1870's.  Although Seldon and Leonard Bailey were not directly related there was a connection, and for a period of time when Leonard was in contract disputes with Stanley he was connected with Seldon in Woonsocket Rhode Island when this and the Victor line of planes were being produced..  The #3 size is the smallest size they made.  Over the years there were a few changes made  in the cap design, and the blade adjuster.  Many of these planes are found damaged, but this one is all OK.  The tabs on the cap are good, and the body is not cracked or damaged in the area they work.. The adjuster is also good.  The top of the rear handle has been carefully repaired.

It is ready for the next collector to display it as an example of a hard to find historically significant collectible plane.  Recommended!!

Leonard Bailey's Victor # 3  Fore PlaneLeonard Bailey's Victor # 3 Smooth Plane   The tag on the side of this one indicates I first sold it to the collector 20 some years ago.   The overall condition is very nice noting that it appears the black finish or japanning has been enhanced with paint added to the adjuster in places I do not think is proper.  It looks all original, just repainted.   Other than that, this plane is all right, and nice.

It is ready for the next collector to display it as an example of a hard to find historically significant plane from the period when Leonard Bailey struck out on his own and developed this line of planes to compete with Stanley's line.  Recommended!!

Leonard Bailey Smooth Plane w/ August 31 1858 Patent Lever CapLeonard Bailey Patented 1858 Smooth Plane   This is a rare and historically significant  patented plane by Leonard Bailey.  It is in excellent original condition.  The patent was granted on August 31 1858 and concerns the lever cap and the means to hold a cutter in place in a plane.  This is one of the first plane related patents Leonard Bailey was granted.  Leonard Bailey designed and produced this plane before licensing the basic idea to and beginning to work for Stanley Rule & Level Co.  This basic design for lever caps later became the standard means of holding a cutter in place that was used by many makers in later metal bodied planes.

Both the nose of the plane, and the lever cap are marked with the Bailey 1858 Patent info.  The patent # is 21.311 and can easily be viewed online. 

The condition is very nice. The body is full height and the throat is good. The stamp on the nose is clear and strong.  The incised patent info on the lever cap is nice as well.  It has a proper, nice long Molson cutter in it.  These unusual planes do not turn up very often.  Opportunity!!  Highly recommended!!

Victor #12 1/2 Adjustable Block PlaneVictor #12 1/2 Adjustable Block Plane   This clean little example of one of Leonard Bailey's Victor Line Block Planes has a trace of nickel on the sides making it a 12 1/2 rather than a #12.  What is here is a clean little plane with no damage to speak of, and just a trace of texture form ever so light pitting on the sides and sole.   The adjuster is nice, operational, and the cutter is in the second hole, and has 3 more to go.  Hard to find and becoming ever harder.

Victor #12 Adjustable Block PlaneVictor #12 Adjustable Block Plane   This is a very clean little example of Leonard Bailey's  #12 Victor Block Plane.  The adjuster is nice, operational, and the cutter is in the first hole.  It looks to have never seen much use.

Leonard Bailey & Co  # 12 Victor Pocket Block PlaneLeonard Bailey & Co  # 12 Victor Pocket Block Plane   This Victor #12 is a very nice plane.  There is no damage, rust or pitting, and a lot of the original japanning remains. The cutter is in the first hole so it has not been used or sharpened much.   The adjuster works properly.    These are getting difficult to find.

Leonard Bailey Little Victor Block PlaneLeonard Bailey "Little Victor" Block Plane   There is little finish left on this example.  After that it is OK.   These came in several different configurations with each having a different number.  I believe this would be a 51 or 52.

Leonard Bailey / Victor # 20 Compass PlaneLeonard Bailey / Victor # 20 Compass Plane  This Leonard Bailey / victor #20 Compass plane dates from the period of time when Leonard Bailey was off on his own after having sold his patents and ideas to Stanley, left their employ and struck out on his own.

The condition is very nice and original.  The front and rear handles / caps are original and not reproductions.  They are oftentimes missing and it is a rare occurrence to find them present.   After Stanly bought out Bailey's patents a second time this plane evolved to the popular Stanley version of the Victor #20 compass plane.  I have several of them listed on the appropriate page if that is what you are looking for.  This one is in collector condition and deserves a spot high up on the shelf.

Leonard Bailey's Victor # 00 Block PlaneLeonard Bailey's Victor # 00 Block Plane    The numbering of Victor planes can be confusing.  The collector has this one identified as a 00 which would mean it has flared sides, is 7" long, has a 1 3/4" cutter and nickel trim.  The cap and cap knob are nonmagnetic, and I assume recasts in brass. The adjuster is nice, as is the cutter. The body is nice and not damaged or cracked.  A nice looking plane.

Victor #8 1/2 Jointer PlaneVictor #8 1/2 Jointer Plane   This Victor 8 1/2 jointer retains most of it original japanning and large amounts of the original nickel plating on the handle and knob. There is no damage to the weak points at the sides, and the adjuster works just fine. 

Leonard Bailey produced this line of planes during one of his separations from Stanley.  They were well received and highly regarded.  Stanley did not like the competition and sued him over their production.  Who won is up for debate, but in the end Leonard went back to Stanley and the Victor line was discontinued after about a 10 year production time.

Leonard Bailey's  # 0 1/2 Victor Block PlaneLeonard Bailey's  # 0 1/2 Victor Block Plane   The 0 1/2 block plane is 7" long and has a 1 3/4" wide cutter.  The  # 0 1/2 Victor Block Planes distinctive features are that it has the blade adjuster, a  nonadjustable throat and flared sides.  Other Victor planes with the 0 thru 000 designation differ in having, or not having, a cutter adjustment, and the finish being japanned or nickeled

This is a nice looking example.  The japanning appears to have been redone.  Oftentimes the adjusters are stripped or non functioning for one reason or another.  This ones is OK.  The cutter is proper and marked although short and hard to read.

Leonard Bailey Patented Block PlanePatented Victor # 1 1/4 Block Plane by Leonard Bailey  This style of block plane is not all that rare, but to have one with the auxiliary tail is rather uncommon.  This plane is known as a Victor # 1 1/4, and was produced by Leonard Bailey during the late 1800's after he had left the employ of Stanley Rule and Level and had once again started his own company producing the Victor line of planes and other tools under a new company name.  The history of this famous and prolific inventor of planes and other tools is long and colorful, as are some of the other stories about the men who were involved in the tool making industry during this period.   The condition of this example is superb and I wish I had learned about such things 15 years earlier than I did when the chances of finding such pieces were far better.  The odds of such a plane showing up today at any venue other than a high quality tool auction are somewhere between slim, nil and none, but if by chance you have something similar and are wanting to sell it please contact me

Good . . . . . . . . $2495.00         SOLD



Leonard Bailey Patent PlaneBailey's #5 Victor Jack Plane Here is another rare and desirable plane from Leonard Bailey's famous Victor line of planes.  This line of planes was produced for a  short period between 1875 and 1888, the period of time when Leonard Bailey had left Stanley Rule and Level Co.  and was again out on his own producing a superior line of metal bodied woodworking planes and related tools.  At one point he was working out of  location producing these planes in RI, that bears his same last name but actually was run by a different fellow Seldon Bailey. 

This example has some areas of paint loss and is dirty, but it is basically damage free and will clean to be very nice.   There is some light pitting on the cutter and chip breaker, but little if any on the body.  The adjuster works as it should, the throat is nice, as are the proper metal handle and knob.  A few years ago these Victor planes seemed as though they were plentiful at shows and tool meetings but the supply has now pretty much dried up and you rarely see or are offered any of these planes any more at tool shows or even on the internet.  A good example for the collector or the investment minded as they are just going to get even harder to find and even more sought after and desirable as time goes by.  Recommended!

Leonard Bailey's #3 Size Victor Smooth PlaneLeonard Bailey's #3 Size Victor Smooth Plane  Here is a rare and desirable plane from Leonard Bailey's famous Victor line of planes.  This line of planes was produced for a  short period between 1875 and 1888, the period of time when Leonard Bailey had left Stanley's Rule and Levels employ and was again out on his own producing a superior line of woodworking planes and related tools in competition with Stanley.  This example has some minor and repairable problems, but it in overall good condition.  First there is a crack in the top of the front knob.  It is cosmetic, but it is there. The pin in the adjuster to move the cutter is missing and need to be replaced.   The chip breaker is missing as well, but the small rectangular center piece is present, so the cutter still locks in place nicely.  The body is very nice, the handle is nice, and the blade cap is good.  There is no damage in the weak area where the cap slides in, or near the throat.  The price reflects the problems which are correctable.

Leonard Bailey's #3 Size Victor Smooth PlaneLeonard Bailey's #3 Size Victor Smooth Plane  Here is a rare and desirable plane from Leonard Bailey's famous Victor line of planes.  It is an early version with the loop adjuster that works off the cap screw instead of the pin type adjuster.  .  As nice as one could hope for.

Defiance #3 Smooth Plane   The Bailey Tool Co. series of planes known by the name Defiance were designed and produced for a very short period of time during the last quarter of the 19th century.  Once considered relatively common and often bringing less than far more recent an plentiful Stanley models, planes from this series and era have now become very difficult to find.  Later when all the dust settles, and when values stabilize and the real rarity or scarceness  is better understood these planes and those from the Victor line, as well as many other unusual or obsure patented planes will be the ones to further escalate and climb in value and finally attain their proper levels.  Bottom line is that they are rare, significant, and  undervalued in today's market.  This example is in overall very nice and retains much of its original japanning.  There is no rust or pitting to speak of, just patina and character.  The lever cap has a small chip on the bottom on one side where it engages the locking pin, a weak point on these planes.  It still functions and is not loose.  The beaded front knob has a tight crack that is hardly noticeable, and the handle is nice.  The fragile adjustment mechanism works as it should.  The cutter is long, nice, and properly marked.  Overall a very nice example of a difficult to find plane.

Good . . . . . . . . $475.00        SOLD




Defience Block PlaneBailey Tool Co. Defiance E Block Plane   The Bailey Tool Co of Woonsocket RI has only a small connection to Leonard Bailey, and it is believed he had little to do with the Defiance line of planes that this firm produced.  Leonard Bailey at one point did work out of the same Company when he was producing his Victor line of planes, but the patents and design features of the Defiance line of planes were produced by a different group of individuals.  These planes connection to Stanley relate to the fact that at one point they were offered in Stanley's catalogs.  This series of planes had some design flaws and weak casting areas, and are often found damaged.  This one is not.  The lever cap is nice, and the ears to hold it in place are undamaged.  The blade adjuster is working properly.  The cutter is very faintly marked.  The japanning is approx 80%.  The sides and sole look great with no problems other than the flea bite nick in the throat as can be seen in the picture.  Tough to find.

Leonard Bailey Patent PlaneLeonard Bailey's Patented 1855 #3 Size Split Frame Plane One of the first and certainly the most important series of patents ever granted for a metallic woodworking plane were those issued to Leonard Bailey for this model plane, most commonly referred to as the "split frame", and his other scraper plane that he was making during this early period in the 1850's.  Bailey only produced these unusual planes for a few short years and it is not known exactly how many of them were actually produced.  It is in absolutely fantastic condition, and second to none in quality, workmanship and finish.  It came out of a basement with a 1950's Sargent Hercules plane in green, and the lady who had it could not see the difference between the two.

Leonard Bailey Patent Plane
Leonard Bailey's 2nd Patent for Blade Adjuster 
Here is an extremely rare plane that utilizes Leonard Bailey's second patent from June 22nd 1859 for an adjustable cutter.  This razee style jointer is 28" long and just under 3 1/8" wide.  It is marked J. Kellogg  Amherst Ma. on the nose, and the owner T. D. Thomas stamped his name into the tail.  This is only the second example of one of these planes that I have ever seen other than the one pictured in Leonard Bailey Patent Plane Roger Smiths book PTAMPIA.  He states that others are known, but few have made it the trading tables or auction block since I have been paying attention. This example is in  nice condition noting a nice early repair to the tote tip, and some minor age cracks in the sole.  The lever cap is solid and has a rounded lever spring.  The cutter is marked Moulson Bros Cast Steel and measures just over 8" long.  Bailey's adjustment piece is neatly and securely pinned to the cutter.  If not for the work of Roger Smith and other researchers like him, this plane would be considered a mere curiosity as it has no patent information or other identifying marks to be found anywhere on it, but it is a documented patent, and Roger tells the story behind them not being marked.  The beginning of the end for wood bodied planes, and an important and rare step in the evolution or creationism of  metallic planes.  When and where are you going to see the next one??

Stanley Type 3 #7 PlaneLeonard Bailey's #7 Size 3 Screw Frog Plane  This is a rare plane that is not seen very often as they were only manufactured or produced by Leonard Bailey in Boston for a couple years in the mid to late 1860's before he went into partnership with Stanley.  It has sometimes been called the missing linktype2k.jpg (22277 bytes) between Bailey's split frame models and vertical posts and the first Type 1 metal bodied planes that Stanley produced using Bailey's patents after he sold out to Stanley in 1869.  The distinguishing feature is that the rear of the frog that was cast to receive a third screw to help hold  the frog in place.  It was a short lived idea that was eliminated by the time he sold out to Stanley.  If they were not so rare this would be a great plane to walk up on at a reasonable price as they look fairly common and much like a who cares type 4 pre lateral version when first seen.  Granted, they do not have the pizzazz or graphic looks of  Bailey's split frame models, but they deserve a place right next to them on the shelf or in the collection documenting the development of the metallic plane.  It is only because of the research and effort by people like Roger Smith that we can have an appreciation of just where this rare plane fits into the scheme of things.

Leonard Bailey's #7 1/2 Victor Fore PlaneLeonard Bailey's #7 1/2 Victor Jointer Plane   Here is another example of a cobbled up plane the collector bought to fill a missing hole in the collection.  This and the previous example look to be the work of another now dead CA collector who specialized in Victor stuff, and sold the extras and lesser off to fund his collecting.  He has since died, and no more of his work / creations will be appearing on the market.

This example has a few good parts.  The cutter is very nice, and full length.  The front knob is very nice.  The rear handle looks ok and has a new coat of  nickel .   The caps inner piece is a remake.  The  blade adjuster is cobbled up and hardly functions  The body has been welded on one cheek as pictured.  From a distance it looks OK.  It is ready for the next collector to display it as an example of a hard to find plane.  Displayed where it will not be examined too closely.

Leonard Bailey's #6 1/2 Victor Fore PlaneLeonard Bailey's #6 1/2 Victor Fore Plane   As with other categories, when the collector got into buying and collecting Victor planes he did so with a relish and reckless abandon.  He would appear at tool shows and buy nearly everything or anything that was there in the category that he was currently focused on.  He liked some dealers / collectors, and would buy things he should not from them just because.  This plane is an example of that attitude and he did not get it from me.     

The nickel has been redone on the rear handle that has a broken tab.   The cap is recast and brass that has been plated.  The  blade adjuster is brass and cobbled up.  It hardly functions  The front knob cap is recast brass.  The body is very nice.  The cutter and cap are nice. 

It is ready for the next collector to display it as an example of a hard to find plane.  Displayed where it will not be examined too closely.  .

Leonard Bailey # 3 Size Vertical Post Smooth PlaneLeonard Bailey # 3 Size Vertical Post Smooth Plane Leonard Bailey is considered one of the premier designers and was one of the earliest producers of metal bodied planes in America.  Prior to selling his plane making business to, and beginning to work for Stanley in the late 1860s he was designing and producing his own line of planes in Winchester Mass.  

The patent dates stamped on the large brass wheel behind the frog are on this plane from 1855 & 1858.  Leonard Bailey's first efforts at bench plane making are known as split frames, and their history and story are told in detail in Roger Smiths works on American patented planes.

His second efforts at bench plane making are known as vertical posts.  Bailey moved his plane making business from Winchester to Boston in 1861 and began producing this line of bench planes with an adjustable frog.  They were simpler design than the earlier split frames, but still expensive to produce, and given the economic situation of the times, along with the Civil War taking place, sales were slow.  These planes were made after 1861, and prior to 1869 when he sold the business to Stanley who changed the frog design on their new line of metal bodied planes shortly after.  

If Roger Smiths descriptions and information about known examples are right this plane has some mixed / matched parts.  The cutter is marked Stanley, and should be a Moulson.  The solid lever cap appears to be from an early, but later than proper plane as well.  The handle looks to have been reworked in the horn area. and may be a complete replacement  The plane body is nice, and rust or pit free.  A rare and desirable plane!!

Square w/ BevelLeonard Bailey's Victor #4 1/2 Smooth Plane  The tag on the side of this one indicates I sold it to the collector years ago. I remember it as it was one of the first Victor planes I ever found back in the late 80's. Even then they were pretty hard to find out in the bush. There are traces of nickel left on some of the parts and so it would qualify as a 4 1/2 instead of a #4. There is one minor apology, that being the small hole drilled in the side, probably by the original owner to allow a fence or depth stop to be used. Other than that, this plane is all right, and nice. It is ready for the next collector to display it as an example of a hard to find plane.

Fine  . . . . . . $495.00       SOLD!!




Leonard Bailey's  # 0 Victor Block PlaneLeonard Bailey's  # 0 Victor Block Plane   The number 0 Victor Block plane was the base model of this style block plane that Leonard Bailey introduced after he left Stanley.  It  is the same as the 0 1/2 but has no cutter adjustment.  These were first introduced in 1875.  The patent  for the adjuster was issued a year later in 1876, but the 0 1/2 w/ an adjuster was not offered until 1883 according to John Walters book / price guide.

This  is a nice condition plane.  Note the cap is the earlier screw tightened type as opposed to the cam style that was later as seen on the plane below.   It is ready for the bench or shelf.

Defiance D Block PlaneBailey Tool Co. D Defiance Block Plane  Looks OK at first glance, but the cap has been repaired, and the plane has been painted.  The body and cutter are nice.

Defiance PlaneDefiance Type Plane   The collector loved a mystery.  The body of this plane looks very similar to the Defiance line of planes produced in RI by Seldon Bailey and the Bailey Tool co. of Woonsocket RI.  Leonard Bailey was also involved w/ this outfit when the Defiance and Victor lines of planes were produced there during his time away from Stanley and that story is told in detail in Roger Smiths books PTAMPIA vol. 1 & 2.

While the body is shaped much like a Defiance plane, and the wood has the right shape and age to be from that period, the frog and cutter are totally different from anything seen on known Defiance or Bailey Tool Co planes. The only marking is on the cutter.   The Moulson cutter in it is the cutter preferred by Leonard Bailey to use in his rare split frame planes.  He also used them in his rare 3 screw frog planes.   The tag the collector wrote up indicates he was a believer.  The small tag on the side rail indicates I sold it to him in the early 90's.  I sure do not remember it, or where I got it, but that was when I was into a lot of barns and out of the way places on the east coast.  The frog is like a prelateral Stanley product, but the brass wheel is completely different, not marked and the knurling does not look like 19th century.   As I said a mystery.   Hard to find and probably one of a kind!!
