Can someone tell me what these are or if they are parts from something else what they may go to, and if they are still any good?

Thanks, DB

The #59 is a Stanley doweling jig. It’s good, but not complete. Check out ebay for other listings; there are parts for all sized dowels. (to state it simply, it aligns holes cut in mated pieces so they fit when dowels are put in place. Precursors to biscuits, if you will, that are much easier to align.

RE: the Dunlap. Others will know for sure, but it appears to be a filing guide for sharpening saws. But that could be way off, as I’ve not seen that particular one before.

Thanks Smitty, now I know what else to look for that goes with the Stanley doweling jig to make it complete. And you may be right on the other, I just found an image that looks similar to this Dunlap one I have that says it is a hand saw sharpening jig. And another that says it’s a handsaw clamp, and that you could also get it in a kit too, that included a file and tooth setter. More stuff to sort through for me!

I used for a while that Doweling Jig…......I really miss it, it works really really well in all situations….I paid for mine like 10 bucks at ebay, it usually come with 5-7 bushings of all sizes, like this one......

A must at any toolchest!
