Windsor BeaderWindsor Beader  This version of the Windsor Beadier is the last model produced and harder to find than the models above.  The condition is superb.  Having never seen one in an original box, I do not know what to make of this one, but there is a halo of sorts on the top where a label might have once been.  There are 3 double ended cutters included.  The nickel on one side of the head is near mint, and shows some wear on the other.  The handles are minty nice.

On top is an 8" Oak Leaf from Simmons Hardware.  I think it was made for them by Wilkinson.  It is nice.   

Next is an 8" Wilkinson.

On the bottom is a pretty hard to find "Perfect Handle" by H. D. Smith Drawknife.  The handles on this are bent up.  I do not know if this was factory, or modified by the owner to keep from scuffing his knuckles.  It seems to be a better idea and look good.

Gruber 
Goosewing AxeGruber Goosewing Axe  I do not know all the fine points of determining the maker or location for these tools.  The center touchmark clearly says Gruber.  To the left looks like a sun face, and on the right is a anchor with a 4 at the top.  Below the name is a mushroom, and a ?  It was bought in CA over 30 years ago if that helps.

Record 151 & 151R Spoke ShavesRecord 151 & 151R Spoke Shaves  These are knockoffs of the Stanley 151 and 151 R  Radius - round bottom spoke shave.  They look to have never been used.  They are made of malleable steels, so should be able to withstand a fall or two.    The Stanley Version of the radius bottom one can bring more than the pair of these.     Nice.

Fine . . . . . .$40.00        SOLD!




Ohio Tool Co. #65 Chamfer ShaveOhio Tool Co. #65 Chamfer Shave   This is a rare shave.  The Stanley version is tough to find, those by other outfits are near impossible.

Windsor Patent Beaders2 Windsor Patent Beaders  Windsor beading planes were patented by two fellows from Windsor Conn. Mr. Orlando Williams, and Lawrence Poole.  They were issued 2 patents in 1885 for this design and that information is clearly stamped into the ebonized frame of the top.   This style is usually referred to as the second model of these beaders.  Note that each has a different cutter.  There is only one profile of each cut and there are 4 relatively large bead profiles on one and 6 finer profiles on the other .

Collins NOS Axe w/ Raised Letter LabelCollins NOS Legitimus Axe w/ Raised Letter Label    The early trademark raised letter label is still on this NOS condition Axe.    It is in super nice overall condition and i doubt it was ever used.  I am not sure if this would be a lumberman's felling axe or a camp axe, or how it would be designated.  I believe the handle is original, but it is not marked so  - - - - .    Nice!

Fine  . . . . .$175.00    SOLD!!

Good . . . . .$60.00       SOLD!



Leather / Book Binding Tools / Sculptor ToolsLeather / Book Binding Tools / Sculptor Tools / Spinning Tools   I am not really sure what these are for.  I have been told different things ranging from clay to book binding to pewter forming tools. A few are marked with a company name, and another with a location of Boston.  Some are unmarked, but obviously have been together and used as a set.  Nice looking, and nice handles.    Different. 

Good . . . . .$80.00         SOLD!!




Stanley #56 Coopers Spoke ShaveStanley #57 1/2 Coopers Spoke Shave  This is for the TOP shave shown in the first pic. The owner identifies it as a #57 1/2 which is not a listed # in Walters book.  It may be a 56 1/2, but with this style cutter holder I am not sure.  It has a 4" wide cutter.  The cutter is held the same way as a #59 with a cast iron crossbar.  This is Stanley's  largest spoke shave at 18" long with a 4" cutter. There is no finish left, but it is damage free.  A good user.

Good + . . . . . .$125.00         SOLD!!


Stanley #57 Coopers Spoke Shave  This is for the MIDDLE shave shown in the first pic. The owner identifies it as a #57.  It has a 2 1/8" wide cutter.  The cutter is held the same way as a #59 with a cast iron crossbar.  One screw is a replacement but it is damage free, and the cross piece is not cracked or damaged.  This is a one of Stanley's extra large spoke shaves that is almost 18" long.  They are useful for large work where you have lots of room and want your hands out of the way.  This is a hard to find extra large early shave in good condition.. 

Good + . . . . . .$90.00       SOLD!


Stanley #56 Coopers Spoke Shave  This is for the BOTTOM shave shown in the first pic.

Folding Blade Race KnifeFolding Blade Race Knife   This is a super piece, in super condition.  Note the file work and chamfered edges.  The second folding blade is an unusual feature.  The mark says George Grau Barman, or Darmen.  Not much turned up about him or the firm with a Google Search.  These were used to mark lumber with things like ID marks, or I have been told for such things as marking the water line on a hull in boatbuilding.
