Please, don’t ever feel like you’re putting me out with a phone call. I am always more than willing to talk tools; it's the brightest parts of my days. Doesn't matter if it's a question about something I have up for sale or just general “ what do I need to do this or what is the proper piece for this plane” type of question. I’m always willing to share what knowledge I have. I’m in the shop from 10am to 5pm EST…so,  feel free to call. 

I do ship internationally, so please contact me about overseas shipping rates....

call or E-mail for availability of tools...they do tend to go pretty quick, first come first served...if you call, please give me a few moments to get to a phone...this place is pretty big..

I am away from a computer/internet connection on the weekends but I check email bright and early Monday mornings..

Tools are graded with a modified Fine Tool Journal scale seen :here: No E-bay surprises here, no cracked castings, no chipped mouths, no defective mechanicals...just good solid users that have been thoroughly checked out for defects...they work like they're supposed to. I buy tools that I would be proud to own...good solid users plus some rather fancy stuff from time to time..

Tools for woodworkers who don’t want to do metalwork. All are tuned and fettled for use: soles are flat, wood is cleaned and waxed, all mechanicals have been tested and lubricated, sides and bed are generally waxed to retard rust and in short…these tools work. No surprises; all castings solid with no cracks, chips, defects. All blades flattened on the back and a solid bevel established…you can use it out of the box but I do recommend giving the bevel a final polish…after all, sharpening is the most important “tool” in your box. . These are tools I would be proud to own...

 

……I forgot to mention that I found something for myself at the last LFOD…a new scraper….and you know I’m a sucker for those….it’s a Stanley No. 12 style but with a few minor differences…marketed by, of all people, Sears as their Fulton line.  Fulton No. 520 but likely made by Stanley.  Now, I wouldn’t touch a Fulton plane for love or money but a scraper is a whole different matter. I’ve never seen a Fulton scraper being sold anywhere…Google it, you’ll get nowhere. Big differences from the Stanley #12 are the simple hardwood handle (no rosewood) and the blade capture has a rectangular slot in the front…marked Fulton blade also…OK…doesn’t mean much to some….PICTURE   PICTURE   PICTURE  

 

And up next for show & tell:

 This is a whole different animal…thanks to Stu from the Tool Exchange, I received this in the mail the other day….he picked it up for me from Pete Niederberger on his way back to Australia…(no link for Pete but : PO box 887 Larkspur CA 94977)….no maker’s marks but appears to be a British maker…only 6” long with a 2 7/8th” wide blade…I’ve got nothing to compare this to in my own collection….just beautiful…a tip ‘o the hat to both Pete & Stu…Thanks, guys!!         PICTURE   PICTURE   PICTURE   PICTURE

It’s the end of an era in Connecticut flea markets…Jim Sileo has passed…he will be missed. The first “collectable” tool I bought, I got from Jimmy, long before I knew that there were collectable tools…that’s gotta go back over 40 years and Jimmy was selling stuff for over 20 years before that. If you went to any fleas in the state, more than likely you saw Jim and not just for tools. He seemed to have his fingers in nearly anything you could turn over for a few dollars. I was lucky enough to be able to comb through his storage units a few years back before his health started to fail. I used to help him set up at a local market so I got to help pack the truck (oh yeah-highlight of my day!). He had a brusque sales manner that turned some people off at first but when you got to know him he was a pussycat. I remember one of the first times I dealt with him, getting into an argument over prices…he was giving me a price on a box lot and I wanted only a few things from the box….no deal! All or nothing…I missed out on that but over the ensuing years more than made up for it. If you had a chance to sit with him for a while you found that he had a wealth of stories…a lot I can’t repeat in mixed company and a lot more that would be incriminating in a court of law. He lived in Derby and the one story that I never forgot was one about a run he made to a local factory to purchase their office furniture. It was a local factory that was closing and at the time Jim was selling used furniture in a storefront in town. He gets a call from the office manager to come look at the office stuff so he hustles down to the......wait for it.....the James Swan factory to check it out. As he told it, the back loading dock was filled with 55 gallon drums of scrap metal….you know, scrap metal like chisels, drawknives, brace bits…..all on its way to a local scrapyard. No, he didn’t end up with any of it…I cried....so it goes…’bye, Jim….it was an honor, a privilege and a blast knowing you....

 

 

 

update for the week of march 22nd 2014

 

 OK...feeling a little more like myself and boy, it does feel good to get out...I felt well enough to hit a Saturday flea for a little while and glad I did...I found that I had a lot of people holding stuff for me for the last few months...some of the finds are fairly common but some of it was exceptional...PICTURE   PICTURE   PICTURE   PICTURE   PICTURE   PICTURE  PICTURE   PICTURE   PICTURE   PICTURE   PICTURE   PICTURE  PICTURE   the Phillips plow plane is a  pretty rare animal.....I appreciated the fact that the Disston #12 sawplate was clean....the little surface gage is a Lufkin magnetic "Mighty Mite" ...a Goodall Pratt hand drill & a clean Millers Falls push drill....the blocks are a Stanley LAAM 65, a LAAM 60 1/2 and a Sargent 106 in what's left of the original box...hope I get in a few more weeks before I go for the operation....

 

2014 03 18...well, nothing new to report from the surgeon but I did learn something very interesting...my surgeon bought a saw stop over the weekend...yep, my surgeon is a WOODWORKER!...Can it get any better than that.....and he's taking care of his phalanges...always a plus in my book...now all I've got to do is woo him over to the dark side...handtools.....somehow knowing he works wood makes me feel a bit more secure....
I'm still a month off from any surgery...recuperating from the chemo and of course, more tests...sort of figured that much anyway...but prognosis is still good... :grin:

 

2014 03 11...the day after...pretty ill from the treatment but this week I also have to have a bunch of tests run on me...cat scan, maybe pet scan...electrocardiogram...and the ever-present endoscopic look see...way too much to deal with when you're running at 50%.....an aside: when I go in for chemo or the follow ups I have to sign in w/name/time and reason for visit...I try to be creative with that last part...when I go in for the BIG chemo, I write in extravaganza or circus...when I go in for the follow up needle...I go for a shot (and a beer?)...or "a fistfull of dollars"....breaks up the day and gets a laugh or at least a bemused look from the girl behind the counter...if I lose my sense of humor-it's all over....

 

2014 03 10...well, today is another 7 hour chemo...hopefully the last session...won't know for a few weeks when I go back for the endoscopic "look see"....still cold here so I've added to my wardrobe...had one of these from my grandfather 40 years ago....PICTURE...and this one I wear to bed at night...I guess you'd call it a "nitecap"...PICTURE (thanks Lys!!!)...well, off to chemo...if I'm lucid, I'll try to add more today....

 

 

2014 02 28...how do you guys with little to no hair get through the winter??!!...I finally had to take the rest of it off and damn, it's cold...have to wear a hat to bed...actually doesn't look too bad, my head's not as square as it looked with hair....pretty round...gotta figure out how to deal with it...is wax a good idea? 

 

2014 02 25...feel like total crap this week...going to take a bit more for me to bounce back from this last treatment...and I think I caught a bit of a cold...N/G

 

2014 02 20...OK, as much as the doctors and nurses at the cancer center can prepare you for the physical side effects of chemo treatments (and believe me they do their jobs well)...I guess they can't prepare you for everything...I woke up this morning to see a stranger looking at me from the mirror...somehow it's not the same face I've seen looking back at me for the last 64 years...different...eyes not quite the same...mustache not quite right...ears in the wrong place...and hair...well, let's just say a little more than incorrect...and all a bit frightening....

 

2014 02 18...well, it's not only the Olympics that have a fast downhill...today was supposed to be a "pain-free" day after chemo...but I'm going downhill too fast this time...might be that the other end of recuperation will be faster also...hope springs eternal...snowing today...I'm going to let nature takes it's course...let it melt on it's own...

 

2014 02 17...my hair hurts!  it's probably my scalp that actually hurts but I think this is a harbinger of bad things to come...I fully expected to loose my hair before this so it comes as no surprise...if I get another week or so I'll be amazed...I've always had a full head of hair and a ponytail (yeah, an old hippie)...so this will be something brand new for me...Went through the extravaganza chemo today and I'll hopefully have one more good day tomorrow (snow day...wouldn't you know it!)...after that it'll be all down hill for 2-2 1/2 weeks...then should be OK for about a week....whatever doesn't kill you...yada yada yada...

 

2014 02 14...Happy Valentines day to all....no chemo this week...good thing too because I've had to shovel snow...nice heavy stuff with more on the way tomorrow...doing it slow and easy....yesterday I went out four times to clear the driveway and the sidewalk...little bit at a time...still strong enough to get the simple things done...

 

2014 02 06...well, these last few weeks were no fun...the last couple of weeks were the worst weeks so far...guess I wasn't as strong as I thought I was....but since I'm still standing I suppose I can handle a little more of the same next week...another 8 hour chemo coming up soon and I expect to be laid out for a while this time...long recuperation from these marathon sessions...

 

2014 01 28...the day after hell... the new chemo started on Monday.....from 9am to 5pm...8 hours...longest chemo I've had to date...in between the cocktails they were giving me fluids and meds to cut down on the nausea...even steroids....still weak today and have to go in for a shot later because this stuff wipes good blood cells in addition to the bad stuff...if I can survive this I can survive anything...and since I'm still standing I guess I can survive this...  : )

 

2014 01 20-the good, the bad and the ugly...well, after 9 weeks of chemo, they decided to go back into my stomach for a few candid shots of the tumor to see how much it's shrunk...unfortunately, not enough to make all that much difference in the surgery-they want it small enough so that there's not a lot of stomach reconstruction they have to do....soooo 9 more weeks of chemo. The first series of treatments were pretty aggressive but I came through without much in the way of side effects...minimal hair loss, not much nausea, and a limited amount of weakness (except for a few bad days)....this next round is the one the doc says will really kick my ass...extremely aggressive treatment where I will probably lose my hair...be consistently weakened and I will have to take nausea meds on a regular basis...trust me, I don't think I'll look OK without hair...I have that Germanic square head thing going on (the ugly)...and I hate being sick (the bad)....the good out of all this...the new meds will target specifically this particular cancer cells source of "food"...'course that kicks the completion of  treatment and operation into late March/April...well into the beginning of 2014 flea market season....sucks...but as long as I can walk I'll be out there trying...Doc seems to think I'll be able to "will" my way through it, like I've done so far...hope he's right. roller coaster ride coming up...hold onto your tickets and your hats!

 

2014 01 09.....the worst week ever....no fun....had a week from hell...falling down a lot...strength at it's lowest ebb...tired most all the time and this damn weather no helping at all...just too damn cold...last BIG chemo session is next Monday...then Wednesday they take another look at the tumor to see how much it's shrunk....operation pretty soon...be glad when it's over...not been in the shop in the last week so haven't been able to update...just so damn tired.....

 

2013 12 27...well, the Woodnet gang knocked my socks off again! The Christmas present is very much appreciated...and you guys had me bawling like a baby!  went out this morning...Friday flea...19 degrees and all extremities were screaming with pins and needles...part of the chemo I don't like...and guess what? The bear ate me today...not a thing to be found and I was out there before 5:30am.....so it goes...there's always next time!

 

2013 12 24...Christmas Eve!...Merry Christmas everyone!...yesterday....wow, what a day...it was the marathon chemo treatment...and this one really knocked my socks off...generally don't feel the nausea associated with the chemo...but this time was different...same with the pins & needles...a little better today and better still tomorrow...think positive!!...and want to wish everyone a safe and sane Christmas....Thanks for the prayers and kind words!!.....Walt

 

2013 12 23...real sick today...the large 3 hour+ chemo treatment....first one wasn't this bad...sorry, just out of it today.....walt

 

2013 12 18...not a fun week...two snows...not bad ones but hard enough to shovel...have to go in for iron infusion to boost my hemoglobin count...well, not as bad or as long as the transfusions I was getting a few weeks ago so I guess that's progress...just a little tired...but warmer weather coming...a little thaw....w

 

2013 12 13....live life on your own terms....I was NOT ABOUT TO GIVE UP MY bIRTHDAY FLEA MARKET...NO MATTER WHAT....OK....at 20 degrees there's not many dealers...5 to be exact...and I didn't stay long...14 minutes...but I did manage to find a few decent items...if you want descriptions...drop me a line...PICTURE   PICTURE   PICTURE   PICTURE   PICTURE   PICTURE   PICTURE   PICTURE   PICTURE   PICTURE   PICTURE   PICTURE   PICTURE...I may pay for this little excursion later but, hell...it was worth it!   walt

 

2013 12 10...first week in a long time I haven't had to get a transfusion...feel pretty damn good...was going to try for the Friday flea this week..but morning temps are supposed to be hovering around 12 degrees....not too sure about that yet

 

 

2013 12 07...pearl harbor day...well, almost a week into chemo and god am I tired....I try to stay in the shop until 5pm but haven't lasted past 3:30....hope this bottoms out soon...

 

2013 12 04...spoke too soon...still ended up in the hospital for most of yesterday...weird s**t....sporadic loss of vision...graying out of both eyes...I can actually make it happen...lasts 14 seconds from start to getting my eyesight back...anyone else that has had chemo ever experienced that? something I expected was a reaction to cold...impossible to pick up a metal plane with a temp of lower than 45 degrees...extreme sensitivity to cold...from pins & needles to feeling like ice crystals on my fingers...expected but still weird....W

 

2013 12 03...

hey! that wasn't bad at all....slept most of the time...even got some nice lemon squares...yeah, I know...wait 24 hours....a tad bit dizzy but still functioning good enough to be back at the shop for a while today...have an addition to my wardrobe also...a fanny pack pump that I wear 24/7...do notice I'm having a bit of a job regulating my body heat (or lack thereof)....first round...I'll take it as a win for me...I can beat this s**t....Walt

 

2013 12 02...

Chemo begins today...a little nervous...don't know what to expect...this make it real...well, that didn't work...come to find out my hemoglobin was too low to start chemo...had to spend Monday in the hospital getting yet another blood transfer...going to try again Tuesday......

 

2013 21 13....

course of treatment...9 weeks of chemo...operation with 1 to 2 weeks in hospital and 5 to 6 weeks recuperation...then 9 (give or take) more weeks of chemo....more aggressive than I thought but the doctor insists it's a better treatment regimen...who am I to argue...what I'll miss most...going to the fleas; being out in the fields and the hunt....even in the winter, there's always somewhere to go on the weekends...I'm going to be bored to tears.....but the timetable seems to put me back on the search around March when things begin to heat up again...here's hoping!!....walt

 

2013 11 19...

spent most of last week in the hospital...hernia (where'd that come from!) they had to push it back in-hurt like hell!!! ...then the next day I was back in the emergency room for another blood transfusion...they kept me there for two days  in the hospital while they got me back into balance....had to delay the course of action meeting with the doctor until Thursday....more info as is comes...Walt

 

2013 11 14...

update...well, all the test results are in...next tuesday is when we decide on a course of action...which I believe will be radiation...then operate then more radiation...still hasn't spread to any other organs, so that's a plus.....interesting side bar...after the endoscopic ultrasound on Monday...I developed an interesting hernia...had to go to the emergency room where they drugged me up and pushed everything back into my bellybutton....weird...That never happened before...

still won't be updating the page or shipping (can't lift anything now), though I did find a few nice tools lately...have to wait until I'm back to working order....again, thanks for the prayers and well wishes.....Walt

 

2013 10 30.....update....cat scan results yesterday....no other instances of cancer anywhere else...first good news in weeks....finally got a good night sleep....not out of the woods yet though...still have to have a PET scan (can I bring Solo?)....and a more invasive upper endoscopy...then they'll determine which course of treatment to follow...will have to have an operation to remove the cancerous tumor and likely radiation and chemo but still a lot better than any of the other alternative scenarios I was imagining . Obviously will be laid up for a while (at least a month or so), and I do believe that they'll want to get this done sooner rather than later....I can't help but believe that the prayers and good wishes from all of you made this miracle happen....I am humbled

 

 

2013 10 28

Christ, where do I begin….I was sent to the hospital Tuesday of last week because my red blood cell count was dangerously low…had to go in for an emergency blood transfusion….while there, they ran a series of tests to determine what was causing the anemia….I’ve had a multitude of tests in the last few months, so there weren’t many left to do. The main one left was an upper endoscopy; unfortunately they found a tumor in my stomach….assumed to be cancerous but I had to wait until Monday to get the biopsy report back….definitely stomach cancer….had a cat scan today…results tomorrow and another appointment this time with an oncologist…I won’t kid you it’s slowed me down and in the end it still may kill me but in the meantime I refuse to let it beat me….and I still got out a little this last weekend but I may not be in the shop a lot this week...lets try to keep it as normal as we can....

The backs are made of cold rolled steel, corrugated to a 1/4 inch in depth to 1/2 inch in width, thus allowing perfect clearance for sawdust.

Fancy Sargent stuff

Sargent No. 1507  ¾” “Ladybug” rabbet plane…IOB-In Original Box…box seam split and missing part of one side…but none of that matters because it did it’s job…the plane itself is as close to unused as they come…nickel at 99.9%, full length blade with factory grind on the bevel…sole has no marks whatsoever beyond the tooling marks from the factory…According to David E. Heckel in his book, SARGENT PLANES (Page 65) "The series of rabbet planes (#1506 through #1509-1/2) are some of the scarcest planes produced by Sargent." Ain’t that the truth! This is Sargent's (or anyone’s) most unique design, the Page patent adjustable bull-nose, rabbet plane. There is nothing like this from any other manufacturer at any time, in any country. AKA the "Ladybug" because of its unusual shape (reminds me more of a tick…but that would not have been a good marketing approach)… Sargent made these in several widths and offered each with or without fence and depth stop. The #1507 did not come with either so this one is complete in the box. These planes are very rare (first one of these I’ve found in my 62 years) and when found generally have little if any nickel plating left because of an inferior electroplating process that Sargent used beginning in 1909; depositing a thinner layer of nickel that tended to wear quickly. IMHO, this one’s in museum quality condition….not cheap; but then anything this nice never is…one of a kind…$1300   PICTURE  PICTURE  PICTURE
