  • Picked up a new tool! This plow plane probably hasn’t been used since the turn of the 20th century, possibly since the civil war. 
It’s got some wear and tear but it still works and is useful for what it was built for over 100 years ago.

  • Over the summer I was at an estate auction of a machinist who had recently passed. His workshop was incredible. Beautiful metal lathes, milling machines, everything you’d expect from a master craftsmen. In the auction was a Stanley hand plane (#3) which I won. When I went to pick it up they showed me the box it was in and what else it came with. That’s what’s in this picture. They didn’t even mention the parts online. These blades are from all sorts of companies I’ve never heard of. On the bottom right that little box is a set of brand new Stanley blades. This was an awesome find and I’d imagine that the man that collected them was a fascinating person. I think the story of where these things come from is important context.

  • Here's my selection for #handtoolthursday 
The 040 scrub plane by Ohio Tool Co.
The earlier version (maroon) does not have a radius at the front of the mouth. Also the tote has a more acute forward angle compared to the later versions (this is in line with the bench planes as well)
Left to right:

Black japanning - no cutter

Black japanning - Hickory brand (Kelly-How-Thomson)

Black japanning - large globe logo

Maroon japanning - football logo with PAT APPLIED FOR

  • Ohio Tool Co. #04 1/2 Smoothing Plane. Per my research this is a Type 1 which was made around 1900. Everything is original including the red japanning. Patina  is 120 years also. Even with an un-tuned cutter it still makes good shavings. It's going up for sale soon listed as a rare vintage tool. Should last another 120 years  if properly cared for. #ohiotoolcompany

  • Finally found an Ohio Tool Co. No. 104 in Rosewood (and I got it for an absolute steal). The best part, it was stamped by  S. & J. H. Whitaker, who were hardware merchants out of Toledo, Ohio in 1850. Their mark is the rarest out of Toledo (4 star) and one that I have been hunting for a long time. Hope everyone has a great Labor Day! 🍻

  • Here’s another transition plane that I’ve had for a while.  This is an Ohio Tool Co. No. 0122.  I don’t know much about the company outside of basic dates of operation.  That said, I would guess this one was made somewhere between 1893, when Ohio Tool merged with Auburn Tool, and 1920, when the company ceased production.  Probably earlier since it has their original red japanning.  Unfortunately, I really don’t know anything about this particular model.  It did clean up well though.  No chemicals used on this one.  Just steel wool and oil.  I did put a fresh coat of shellac on the wood.

  • Better late than never I guess... Here's my selection for #handtoolthursday 
Two KK171½ routers and three 07½ router planes all made by Ohio Tool Co. The two KK171½ are practically the same casting. The three Ohio branded ones however, are all different. One of them was offered without a depth adjuster and has a "fancier" fon't than the other two.
Cheers!

  • I realize I missed #handtoolthursday but it's been a little busy. Researching and cataloguing is grueling. It's no where near as fun as the chase or the hunt looking for the next piece. I feel like I've got most of the data here for a good type study but I'm feeling the fatigue for sure. I'll be at the M-WTCA national meet in East Peoria, IL next week with an Ohio display and I'll FINALLY be selling some the planes used in the study so come find me!
Cheers!

  • Couple nice pick-up's today at the swap meet. A #stanleyplanes Number 10 1/2 Rabbit Plane. Also a rare #ohiotoolcompany #4 1/2 bench plane (type1). It has the red jappening which was only used a couple years. Everything is original including a hefty cutter iron. I wanted to do my customary cleaning but once I found out it's worry I decided to just remove the soiled sawdust and leave the 120 year old patena as is. Hopefully someone will recognize it's worth and historic value.

  • Here's my #tooltuesday post...I received these two planes from my cousin. They were salvaged from his father's land. First of all my great aunt and uncle were two of the kindest, most loving, gentle, and greatest people this world has ever known. I feel privileged and honored to hold a tool that my family was connected to. It's a special feeling to honor those people by remembering them and sharing what they taught us. I'm leaving the smaller one as is, and use it for decor. The larger one however I'm restoring! The blade is stamped "Ohio tool co" and through a quick search I found this company made planes just as this, went out of business in 1920.  Of course it could have been made later and used the blade from an original, but I like to think it's got a good 100 years of history. Just siting around waiting for years to come live in my shop!! Sanded the whole thing down and stained the handle and wedge with general finishes brown mahogany, cleaned up some rust on the iron ( I'll order a new one) and waxed the entire thing with @walrusoil wax. Man I dig some rich history! #handplanes #knotty_woodcraft #kindness #tools #tooltuesday #noogamade #vintage #antique #antiquetools #ancestors #family #ohiotoolcompany #woodworkers #woodworking #wood #shoptools #history #planes #handtools #restoring #imputtingwaxoneverything

  • Here’s a unique block plane for #handtoolthursday this is an Ohio Tool Co. no 015. This one has Edward S. Marks August 6, 1901 patent frog that swivels to right and left for lateral adjustment, and also has an adjustable mouth as well. I’m looking forward to getting this one cleaned up! 👌🏻 Also, if you’re not already following @akers_of_wood go check out his page. He is putting together an Ohio Tool Co. plane type study to go on his website (which will be an incredibly helpful reference), and has some of the finest Ohio Tool Co. planes that I’ve seen. Check out his page! 🍻

  • Here's my selection for #handtoolthursday 
I'll probably never be able to top this one... Edwin W. Foster patent plane also known as the turntable plane. It was an interesting concept. You could rotate the frog into a skewed position in either direction. The thought was that you could skew the cut for figured wood without sacrificing the length of the sole. I imagine it was too costly to produce based on the amount of machining it would take and how perfect it had to be. Olive Machinery was tasked to producing four different sizes. All examples have Ohio Tool Co parts and it's unclear whether Olive contracted with Ohio or bought the parts from Ohio. It can't be denied that Ohio was somewhere in the mix when these planes were produced. 
Very few still exists; I know of around 10 in existence (doesn't mean more doesn't exist though).

  • Here are my picks for #handtoolthursday which are all made by Ohio Tool Co.
The first grouping of block planes are three 09½ blocks and an elusive 09¾ tailed block. 
The second grouping can be even harder to find. Here, we have two 015 blocks and an a rare 015½ tailed block.
These planes are Edward S. Marks patents. There are two different patents - 680,055 & 680,056. The plane on the right of each grouping is exactly like the 055 patent with no mouth adjuster lever and the pivoting frog is held down by a screw. However, the other Marks patents had pins to hold down the pivoting frog just like the 056 patent but retain the 055 lateral and depth adjustment mechanism.
Cheers!

  • Spring cleaning has me clearing out the storage room and getting ready for pickin' season, so I have a few random budget planes going live in the shop today.
.

We have a Craftsman "BL" No. 4 size smoothing plane - made by Sargent, an Ohio Tool Co No. 0110 block plane (dated 1906 - 1914), and last and definitely least, I have a funky No. 3 size Atlas Tools pressed steel frog plane, made by Peck & Mack Co. of NYC, probably dating to the 1920s. Also have this neat early 1900s Weston Ammeter electrical gauge. Now, to fill that free space with more goodies... Stay tuned!

  • My dad recently gave me these planes which were all his dads. I’ve restored the two Stanley’s to working order and next up is the Ohio Tool Co wooden plane in back. 
I was amazed at how well these worked after a relatively quick tune up. Check out @paul.a.j.sellers videos on restoring hand planes you can’t go wrong.

  • Here is a rare Ohio Tool Co 09 3/4 tailed block plane. This one has a combination of the two Edward S. Marks patent 680,055 & 680,056. The lateral and depth adjustment is based off of the 055 patent but the pivot is attached like the 056 patent. Also shown is an Ohio made KK 9 3/4 tailed block but it has the vertical post depth adjuster style like the Stanley versions sport for comparison. This is an excellent example of an early combination Marks patent which in itself is scarce but with the added wooden tail knob it is extremely rare to find.

  • Another Ohio Tool Co. plane out of Nichols chest. This plane is their model No. 48 1/8.  I actually had to look up this model in the Ohio Tool Co. catalogue, as I had no idea how to appropriately reference this molding profile. According to their catalog, this a 3/4” fenced casing molding plane. As you can see, it appears that Nichol never used this plane, as it looks to be dead mint: no scuffs, knicks, stains, blowouts or checking. It almost looks as if it recently came straight from the Ohio Tool Co factory, as there isn’t even much patina present. The condition of this plane is pretty remarkable, considering it’s age, and considering that it’s original owner made a living as a full time carpenter in the 1800’s!

  • Nichol’s side bead planes. Unlike some of his other planes, his side beads show quite a bit of use. The boxing on some of these planes are chipped and/or missing in areas. From largest to smallest: Parker Hubbard & Co 1 1/4”, D N Garrison 4/8” (as marked), and Ohio Tool Co. No. 37 both in 3/8” and 1/4”. D. N. Garrison was a plane maker and tool merchant out of Dayton, OH. Both of the Ohio Tool Co No. 37s are marked on the side with Nichol’s owner mark, and the 3/8” is an absolute beautiful plane. The ray fleck is mesmerizing!

  • Getting back to chest - here are Nichols Reeding/Beading planes. Again, all three are made by the Ohio Tool Co, and they are the following: Ohio Tool Co 5/8” model no. 122,  Ohio Tool Co 3/8” model no. 122, and Ohio Tool Co 1/4” model no 41. Cutting a reed can be done using a centerbead plane, however the Reeding plane is a pretty genius way to accomplish the same thing. On a Reeding plane, the sole has multiple flutes (grooves) that will allow the previous reed to become the guide to cut the next parallel reed. Nichols examples are triple boxed, and they’re stamped with his S W Nichol owner mark.

  • I have a thing for old hand tools. I feel that the #steel is better in most cases. They seem to have something about them that is similar to having their own #unique personality. I prefer the broken, forgotten, and rusty ones that just need a little #love . This plane had both handles broken off and the blade assembly was rusted together. I don’t collect them or restore them to original condition.

I prefer the broken, forgotten, and rusty ones that just need a little #love . This plane had both handles broken off and the blade assembly was rusted together. I don’t collect them or restore them to original condition.

  • The rabbets! Similar to Nichol’s fore planes, all 4 of these rabbet planes are made by Ohio Tool Co. The largest rabbet is a model No. 120, and measures at 2” wide. The other three rabbets are model No. 116, which are skewed, and measure 1 3/4”, 1 1/2”, and 3/4”, respectively. It appears that one of Nichol’s last projects was painted in a handsome teal color, as all 4 rabbet planes have traces of this color found somewhere on them. When I cleaned these planes, I was purposely trying to keep the paint untouched. (Mainly, anytime I clean a wooden hand plane, I’m simply just trying to remove the surface dirt only, keep the patina/character intact, and enrich the wood, so that it doesn’t dry out/check).That teal paint is part of the story, and adds to the history! The 1910 Ohio Tool Co. guide has each of these rabbets selling at less than $1. I hope everyone has a good weekend and happy hunting! 🍻

  • Anddd Nichol’s two fore planes! Both are 22 inches in length, both are made by the Ohio Tool Co, and obviously one is a Razee fore plane. Razee just references the fact that the back portion of the fore plane has been removed/reduced in size. I read that the term Razee is actually derived from the nautical term Razee. Apparently, in the late 1500s, the British removed upper decks on their warships to reduce weight to make them faster and more maneuverable. I believe these two planes to be some of the very first that Nichol owned, as he stamped his owners mark all over them, including inside the bed/wooden frog. Along with that, one intriguing observation I made is that, with the majority of his owner marks on these planes, he used his stamp in a way that would imprint his last name only. I wonder why he decided to attempt to leave the S.W. marking off? Maybe he had intentions of eventually passing along these tools to his siblings/children to use one day? Maybe his best bud or colleague had a last name owner stamp only? Hard to say with any type of certainty!

  • Spring cleaning has me clearing out the storage room and getting ready for pickin' season, so I have a few random budget planes going live in the shop today.

We have a Craftsman "BL" No. 4 size smoothing plane - made by Sargent, an Ohio Tool Co No. 0110 block plane (dated 1906 - 1914), and last and definitely least, I have a funky No. 3 size Atlas Tools pressed steel frog plane, made by Peck & Mack Co. of NYC, probably dating to the 1920s. Also have this neat early 1900s Weston Ammeter electrical gauge. Now, to fill that free space with more goodies... Stay tuned!

  • Over the summer I was at an estate auction of a machinist who had recently passed. His workshop was incredible. Beautiful metal lathes, milling machines, everything you’d expect from a master craftsmen. In the auction was a Stanley hand plane (#3) which I won. When I went to pick it up they showed me the box it was in and what else it came with. That’s what’s in this picture. They didn’t even mention the parts online. These blades are from all sorts of companies I’ve never heard of. On the bottom right that little box is a set of brand new Stanley blades. This was an awesome find and I’d imagine that the man that collected them was a fascinating person. I think the story of where these things come from is important context.

  • Finally found an Ohio Tool Co. No. 104 in Rosewood (and I got it for an absolute steal). The best part, it was stamped by  S. & J. H. Whitaker, who were hardware merchants out of Toledo, Ohio in 1850. Their mark is the rarest out of Toledo (4 star) and one that I have been hunting for a long time. Hope everyone has a great Labor Day! 🍻

  • Picked up a new tool! This plow plane probably hasn’t been used since the turn of the 20th century, possibly since the civil war. 
It’s got some wear and tear but it still works and is useful for what it was built for over 100 years ago.

  • Here’s a unique block plane for #handtoolthursday this is an Ohio Tool Co. no 015. This one has Edward S. Marks August 6, 1901 patent frog that swivels to right and left for lateral adjustment, and also has an adjustable mouth as well. I’m looking forward to getting this one cleaned up! 👌🏻 Also, if you’re not already following @akers_of_wood go check out his page. He is putting together an Ohio Tool Co. plane type study to go on his website (which will be an incredibly helpful reference), and has some of the finest Ohio Tool Co. planes that I’ve seen. Check out his page! 🍻
