Stanley #5 jack plane, type 11, 1910-1918
This is a Stanley Bailey #5 jack plane. The #5, along with the #4, was the staple of every carpenter’s toolbox in the day. This is a gorgeous, clean, plane with 99+% of the original body japanning and 100% of the original knob and tote finish (with a couple of very small paint splats on the knob, typical for a #5). This plane is clean, sharpened, and ready to work!
T.H Witherby 1″ bench chisel
This is a T.H. Witherby socket handle bench chisel. The Witherby branded chisels have long been known as some of the best chisels ever made for their superior steel. This one is 1″ wide and 6″ long with a solid and great looking vintage handle, freshly finished with a classic linseed oil finish and clearcoated. This is a super duper chisel, cleaned, sharpened, and ready to go!
Disston D-24. This is a pre-1928 Disston D-24 handsaw. This saw was classified as a “pruning saw” in the Disston catalogs of the day, but it was really just a heavy duty carpenter’s crosscut handsaw, designed by Harvey W. Peace and the Vulcan Saw Works before being taken over by Disston. This saw is 22″ long and 7 tpi with a faded but readable etch. This saw is clean and sharp with a fresh linseed oil and clearcoat finish on the handle.
