Sargent # 81 Side Rabbet PlaneSargent # 81 Side Rabbet Plane   This interesting little plane is in very nice condition. They are quite useful for cleaning up rabbets.    It is set up a bit different from the Stanley #79 side Rabbet.  Nice!!

Good + . . . . . $75.00     SOLD!!







Sargent T & G PlanesSargent Combination Tongue & Groove Planes   Sargent made some very innovative and interesting designed planes and these T & G planes they offered fall into that category nicely.  These are both complete and damage free, but as with many of their products the nickel is weak.  There is a 1068 & 1067 offered as a pair.

Good . . . . .$ 225.00 / Pair              SOLD




Sargent # 1508 "Lady Bug" Rabbet & Dado PlaneSargent # 1508 1/2 "Lady Bug" Rabbet & Dado Plane This was Sargent's answer to the Stanley #90 series of planes and came in a range of sizes much like the Stanley 90 -94.  Sargent went a step further and also offered these with an optional fence and depth stop.  Those would be referred to with a 1/2 after the main number like 1508 in this case.  In other words it is proper and to be expected that many of these planes do not have the fence / rod and depth stop, even if the body is drilled for them.  This one does.  They were offered as an accessory. 

Good . . . . .$ 2250.00       SOLD




Sargent 507 Rabbet Block PlaneSargent 507 Rabbet Block Plane This Sargent 507 rabbet plane is in nice condition.  90% of the original jappaning or better.

Zenith Shaw's Patent #4 Size Smooth Plane by SargentZenith Shaw's Patent #4 Size Smooth Plane by Sargent  This plane was made by Sargent for the Marshall Wells Hardware Co who used Zentih as their brand name. They stamped / etched their distinctive logo into both sides and the cutter is marked as well.  It is a Shaw's patent with its Stanley Bedrock like idea for attaching the frog to the body.  It was not nearly as well thought out or as elegant or even well executed idea, but is certainly different from the norm.  It is all here, and all OK.  Used but not abused.

Good + . . . . .  $ 75.00      SOLD!!






Sargent 1080 Combination PlaneSargent 1080 Combination Plane in Box   This is complete and pretty nice. A couple of the cutters were modified, but most are like new in their original canvas roll.

Good + .  . . . $130.00      SOLD!!





Sargent Shaw's Patent # 8 Smooth Plane This model plane was Sargent's answer to the ever popular Stanley Bedrock series of planes.  With its unusual frog design and 3 screw adjusting mechanism, it ranks as one of the hardest and most desirable of all Sargent planes to collect or use.  This plane is in super original condition still retaining nearly all of its original black japanning and its exposed metal parts are rust and pit free.  The Mahogany knob and handle are very nice as well.  This plane has never been cleaned or messed with and is in excellent untouched original condition.  A tough one to find in this size and condition.

Good . . . . .$ 125.00           SOLD



Sargent VBM # 414 Jack PlaneSargent VBM # 414 Jack Plane   Very Nice!!!   95% or better of the original japanning.  Full length cutter.  Good wood.  This jack plane plane is identical to the popular Stanley # 5 jack plane and has seen little to no use.

Fine . . . . . $55.00      SOLD!!

Good . . . . . . . $12.00   SOLD!!






Millers Falls #07 Skew Block PlaneMillers Falls #07 B Skew Block Plane  The 07 plane was Millers Falls answer to the Stanley #140 skew block plane.  The adjuster is a different design and that is probably the B reference stamped on the side The condition is as nice as one could ask for.  Nice!!

Fine  . . . . . $90.00     SOLD!




Millers Falls #07 Skew Block PlaneMillers Falls #07 Skew Block Plane  Same as the 140 with a similar adjuster to the Stanley.  Nice!!

Fine  . . . . . $60.00      SOLD!!







Sargent 317 Tailed Block Plane Sargent #317 Tailed Block Plane   This plane is in nice condition.  It is the later version as can be noted by the cap style, and the thick walls with the handy feature.  The cutter is marked 317.  There is no rust and just minor spots of very light pitting here and there.   The throat area is damage free.  The body still retains approx 90% of the original finish, while there has been some looses to the cap.  All proper and original, and you will like it!

Good . . . . .$ 225.00       SOLD

Winchester 3063 Dado PlaneWinchester #3063 1" Dado/Rabbeting Plane   Sargent made this plane for Winchester during their short lived foray into the consumer tool market back before the onset of the great depression.  Through a series of marketing missteps and because of the worsening economy during this period, Winchester who was in partnership with Simmons Hardware, had to give up on their plans to dominate this portion of the consumer market.  This plane is in like new condition, with the exception of the cutter, which the previous owner has modified on the top to serve as a moulding cutter of some sort.  By doing this he has lost about 1/4 of height to the top of the cutter and has made the top of the cutter round.  The original working end appears to have never been sharpened.  The japanning is well over 97% and the nickers are as new.  You will not be disappointed, it is the nicest one I have ever seen.

Good . . . . .$ 295.00                SOLD




Winchester #3201  (#78) Rabbit PlaneWinchester #3201  (#78) Rabbit Plane As is the case with most Winchester tools and planes, this one has seen considerable use.  It has approx 50% of the japanning, and a rich even patina.  There are no casting problems but there are some bangs and dings as is to be expected.  This plane was made by Sargent and I believe has the proper fence and rod.  I could not find the wing nut for the depth stop in the box where I got this, and so had to replace it with another.  Metal bodied planes marked Winchester are always a challenge to find, and this one is no exception.

Good . . . . .$ 145.00                SOLD



Winchester #3080 Scraper Plane   Sargent made this plane for Winchester during their short lived foray into the consumer tool market back before the onset of the great depression.  Through a series of marketing missteps and because of the worsening economy during this period, Winchester who was in partnership with Simmons Hardware, had to give up on their plans to dominate this portion of the consumer market.  During various periods they had either Stanley Sargent or I believe even Ohio making tools for them, and then relying on their reputation and marketing to allow them to sell these products with their name and logo on them.  This plane has been repainted and the sides lapped, but it still looks good.  The cutter is stained and pitted, but it is original, and with a loop you can make out the Winchester name in script on it across the middle.  All Winchester planes are hard to find, and especially so with the scrapers.

Good . . . . .$ 150.00                SOLD



Winchester #3058 Spoke Shave     There are some Winchester tools you see pretty regularly, but their spoke shaves are not one of them.  I believe this was made by Stanley, probably back in the 20's when Winchester had their line of hardware stores around the country.  It was short-lived, and most legitimate Winchester tools are pretty hard to find these days.

Good . . . . .$ 75.00              SOLD



Sargent #407 (#2 Size) Smooth Plane Sargent #407 Type 2 (#2 size) Smooth Plane   This is a very nice example of an early plane by Sargent Tool Co. one of the major competitors of Stanley in the plane manufacturing business early in the last century.  Being a type 2 dates this plane from before 1910.  This plane retains most of its original japanning, and has a rich and even patina with no pitting or rust to speak of.  The early, proper and original Rosewood handle and knob are very nice as well.  The one apology is that the cutter has been replaced at some point with a Stanley one that dates from the teens.  A tough plane to find.

Good . . . . .$ 225.00               SOLD






Sargent 2204 Block PlaneSargent # 2204 Steel Block Plane   This is a very nice example  A tough plane to find.

Good . . . . .$ 35.00               SOLD







Sargent #2204 Steel Block PlaneSargent #2204 Steel Block Plane   This looks to have seen little to no use. They are great little pocket planes.  No apologies.  Nice!!

Fine . . . . . .$ 45.00         SOLD!!





Sargent #5206 Low Angle Steel Block PlaneSargent #5206 Low Angle Steel Block Plane   This looks to have seen little to no use.  I am guessing it is from near WWII with the black anodized finish.  It will be a great user.  .

Fine . . . . . .$ 35.00          SOLD!!






Sargent # 507 Rabbet Block Plane  Sargent's better idea to compete with Stanley's #140. It is a very fragile plane with those large cut outs but this one made it in fine condition.  The cutter is near full length as well.  Lie Neilson make a knockoff of this in bronze which I believe is still available.  The previous owner did etch his name very lightly in one cheek with an electric pen, very lightly.

Good . . . . .$175.00               SOLD


Sargent # 722 Tilt Knob Jointer PlaneSargent # 722 Tilt Knob Jointer Plane  Sargent's Auto set line of planes was very popular and a well made plane.  The 722 was the largest they offered and had an unusual tilting front knob. 

Good + . . . . .$ 225.00              SOLD







3 Sargent Scrub Planes 3 Sargent Scrub Planes   This group of planes may not look special to the casual observer, but all metal Sargent scrub planes are becoming pretty hard to find, and that two cutter model in the middle is one of the rarest of all planes that Sargent ever produced.  These Sargent scrub planes are the #161, #161, & #162 and date from the teens into the 20's or so with the rare 162 only having been made in one production run.  The #162 is often found missing pieces as they were very hard to adjust and oftentimes the owner just took out 1 cutter and a cap and used it with just one cutter.

Good . . . . .$1750.00 SOLD




Sargent #407 Smooth Plane w/ Brass Name PlaqueSargent #407 Smooth Plane w/ Brass Name Plaque  This is a rare variation of the Sargent #407 / 2 size plane.  Very few of these are found with this plaque and even fewer in the small #2 size.  The condition is nice, and the cutter proper.  No damage or problems.  The tag on the side indicates the collector bought this from Dave Paling the famous California dealer back in 1981.  A nice plane, and a hard one to find. 

Good+ . . . . .$ 375.00        SOLD!




Sargent #29 Rabbit PlaneSargent #29 Rabbet Plane   This is a great looking plane.  The cap is the brass plaque style and a rare variation.  The cutter is near full length with plenty of life in it.  There is no rust or pitting, and the wood is nice as well.  It will be a great user, or is nice enough for the shelf. 

Fine . . . . . .$ 275.00        SOLD!




Sargent #407 (#2) Smooth PlaneSargent #407 (#2) Smooth Plane  This looks OK.  The handle has been glued and refinished,.   The front knob is Rosewood and not Mahogany like the handle.  Otherwise it looks right.     

Good + . . . .$ 150.00         SOLD!!





Millers Falls # 85 Duplex Rabbit / Dado PlaneMillers Falls # 85 Duplex Rabbit / Dado Plane   This is Millers Falls version of the Stanley #78.  I had to install a new lever cap as the original broke.  That involved a bit of file work to get the slot in the cap to work..  The owner just put it up on the shelf and moved on.  It looks to have seen little use.   

Good + . . . . .$ 95.00      SOLD!!




Winchester #3 Size #3004 Corrugated Smooth Plane by SargentWinchester #3 Size #3004 Corrugated Smooth Plane by Sargent  Winchester entered the tool market under the assumption that with their reputation that they could and would succeed in this new non gun venture.  It almost bankrupted them and they dropped the entire idea, reorganized the company, and returned their focus to guns which they made and knew.

Winchester did not actually make their lines of planes and other tools. They farmed it out to companies like Stanley, Sargent and others.  Stanley made planes were designated as W3 or whatever the size was.  They were a Bedrock design.  Sargent made Winchester planes were marked with a 4 digit number beginning with a 3 as this one is marked behind the frog.  Their planes were actually well received and sold pretty well.  They are usually found well used and are seldom found in this nice condition.  The logo or ditty Winchester used to market their line or tools was "As Good as the Gun"

The condition of this 3 size corrugated bottom plane is like new.   A super piece!

Fine . . . . . .$ 125.00        SOLD!!



Winchester # W 9 1/2 Block Plane by OhioWinchester # W 9 1/2 Block Plane  This is a very nice example of a hard to find Winchester block plane.  It was made for them by either Ohio Tool co. or Sargent.  Winchester did not actually make their line of planes and other tools, they farmed it out to companies like Stanley, Sargent, Ohio Tool Co. and others.  The lateral is marked with the W 91/2 and I believe it is by Ohio because of the round handy features on the side but it might be a Sargent product.  It is in very nice condition with a full length properly marked cutter.  It will make a fine addition to the Winchester tool or gun collection!  Good as the gun!!  Different and nice!!

Good +  . . . . . . $ 45.00        SOLD!




Millers Falls #07 Skew Block PlaneMillers Falls #07 Skew Block Plane / Original Box  This plane was Millers Falls answer to the Stanley #140 skew block plane.  They are a fine tool and work well with the angled cutter for end grain work or cleaning out rabbits with the removable side plate.  The box has been taped, but the plane is all original and near mint!   SUPER!!

Fine  . . . . .$ 175.00        SOLD!!





Millers Falls # 209 Smooth Plane  Millers Falls Tool Co. introduced this unusual finish smooth plane in 1938 to commemorate their 70th anniversary.  It is highlighted on the cover of that catalog.  Millers Falls is well known for their innovative designs and attempts to carve out some market share from the king of the pack, Stanley by introducing new and different designs for their line of tools.  A few years after this they introduced and offered what has become known as the "Buck Rodgers" line of planes and tools that also have a very unusual look to them.   In general Millers Falls produced a very nice product, and went a step further when they introduced this model with its clear Red "Permaloid" plastic handles, and Chromium finish on the exposed metal parts.  It does stand out, and has a look above the others.    The previous owner did etch his name very lightly into the side rail. You can hardly see it.   Other than that it is near mint and looks to have never been used.  Nice!!

Fine  . . . . . $375.00        SOLD!




Zenith / Marshall Wells # 4 1/2 Size Smooth PlaneZenith / Marshall Wells # 4 1/2 Size Smooth Plane by Sargent This plane is in nice overall condition.  It was made for Marshall Wells a northwest tool distributer by Sargent.  It has the Zenith logo etch / stamp on both sides as well as on the cutter  It has been cleaned, and there is some light pitting.  There is over 80% of the original jappaning. The mahogany handle and knob are nice.  No other issues or problems.  A very hard to find plane that will make for a fine user or a nice addition to the collection. 

Good + . . . . . $ 85.00    SOLD!!





Union # 2 Smooth PlaneUnion # 2 Smooth Plane   This is a hard to find version of a Union #2.  The bed is marked behind the frog unlike most seen.   The Mahogany handle and low front  knob are nice.  The lateral is stamped Pat Apl'd For.  The cutter is full length and looks to be thicker /  heavier than the norm. The original japanning is about 90% or better.  The throat is proper and has not been opened.  A pretty nice example.

Fine. . . . .  $245.00






Sargent Auto Set # 707 (#2) Smooth PlaneSargent Auto Set # 707 (#2) Smooth Plane  Sargent made 3 different versions of #2 size planes.  The Shaw's Patent which was numbered #7, the number 407 which had typical design, and this the #707 which is referred to as an Auto Set.  This looks like a nice plane but has two issues.  The top rim of the lever cap is damaged.  It holds the adjuster down and in place.  It has popped off and been re-attached.  It is not permanent. (see pic)  There is also a small crack at the side in front of the throat.  It turns the corner and goes about an 1/8" on either surface.  It does not reach the throat, but it is there. The wood is original and nice.  The cutter is proper, marked and nice.  A nice looking but slightly damaged small smooth plane with some good parts. 

Good - . . . . . $150.00


Marshall Wells / Zenith Z - 2 C Smooth PlaneMarshall Wells / Zenith 2 C Corrugated Bottom Smooth Plane  This is a very nice example of a hard to find #2 size plane.  Zenith planes were made for Marshall Wells, a large Midwest distributer out of Duluth Minn. by Sargent.  They were only made for about 15 years in the 1920's - 1930's.    The Zenith etched logo is very clear on both side rails as well as the cutter stamp.  There is no pitting or damage.  The japanning is well over 90%.  Nice wood.  A super hard to find plane in top shelf collector condition

Fine . . . . . $495.00       SOLD!!

Union Tool Co. X-5A Large Jack PlaneUnion Tool Co. X-5A Large Jack Plane  Union Tool Co was another CT based tool maker who went up against Stanley trying to compete with the king.  They offered a line similar to Stanley's along with a few different ideas in an attempt to get some market share.   They were around for a while but in the end were bought out by Stanley.  Their line of vertical post X planes was one of those attempts at offering a different product.  They are interesting, but not one of the greatest designs compared to say Stanley's Bed Rock line.  Not rare, except for the # 1 size they made, but not common either.

This example is the size of a 5 1/2 and is in overall nice condition noting the top of the handle has gone missing. It is one of the harder sizes to find.  Nice.

Good + . . . . . . $ 65.00    SOLD!!


Union Tool Co. # 4 1/4 Smooth Plane w/ Adjustable FrontUnion Tool Co. # 4 1/4 Smooth Plane w/ Adjustable Front  This Union Tool Co. plane, marked # 4 1/4 was one of Union Tool Co.'s more unusual design planes.  At first glance it looks like a typical size #4 plane, but this version has an adjustable front piece like a 9 1/2  block plane or first model #10 rabbit plane.  It is so unusual that no mention of, or examples can be found using a Google search.  

This plane is in overall nice condition noting a small chip in the throat.  Nice.

Good + . . . . . . $ 295.00    SOLD!!

Good . . . . . . . $20.00      SOLD!!






Sargent #42 Scraper PlaneSargent VBM # 42 Scraper Plane  The condition of this Sargent #42 Scraper is very nice.  The VBM stands for Very Best Made and Sargent did put out a quality product The Sargent #42 Scraper is basically the same as a Stanley # 12 scraper. The original black japanning is over 90% and this scraper plane saw little use.  The unmarked cutter is the proper thickness and looks original.  The Sargent 42 is much harder to find than the Stanley counterparts, especially in this nice condition.  

Good + . . . . .  $60.00       SOLD!!



Tailed Block PlaneSmall Tailed Block Plane  Over the years I have seen a lot of these but little info on them.  By Birmingham perhaps, or from boys tool boxes, or just a $1.00 plane that Sears offered.  Not sure. 

Good . . . . . $10.00       SOLD!!





Siegley #2 Combination PlaneSiegley #2 Combination Plane  Siegley made a number of different versions of this plow plane.  This one has a screw adjuster for the cutters and is one of the later models.  The box of cutters is missing at least one, and there are 18 or so remaining including the harder to find beading cutters.  There is one screw missing on the outside fence.  It otherwise looks good, and ready to go.  Nice!!
