I bought a small collection of antique wood working tools Saturday, it had been in storage for 15 years and the lady was tired of moving her dads tools around. Convinced she was ready to sell, she got ahold of me through a mutual friend and here I am trying to figure out what I bought.

I have a couple planes that I know nothing about, and I cant seem to find any markings on them. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Jeff

The circular plane looks like an Evans Patent. There should be a large oval brass emblem on the opposite site.

The plow is a Siegley#2.

The bench is a Davis.

I don’t have a clue on the last one.
