Looking to trade this McClellan angle brace. I picked it up out of curiosity, but have no real use for it other than a decoration. I figure if there is someone out there who likes collecting, it may be of interest to them. Or, if anyone is just super-psyched about decorative braces. The brace has a Millers Falls chuck on it, patent Feb 18 1890. From what I’ve found, McClellan was a salesman for MF and invented his own braces using their chucks. I’ve only found a few references to it, so I’ll post links below. I can get more pictures if anyone is interested. I have not done any cleanup to this item and plan to leave it as found. It is in good shape for its age, little rust and very little pitting. Everything on it works as it should. It does not have the removable handle, which I guess is a rarity.

I’m hoping someone has a router plane or shoulder plane laying around that they don’t use, but would be open to other trades. Send me a PM if you have something. I figure for the ease of transaction, I’ll pay to ship this, and the other party do the same with their item.
