Time to clean out the shop a little. This is all stuff that I’ve had sitting around for a while, and haven’t gotten around to cleaning up and putting to use. I’m moving in the next couple of months, so what better time to downsize. I’m open to fair offers, and will absolutely discount for combined shipping, should anyone want to purchase more than one item. Ships from Minneapolis, MN and would be open to local pick up in Coon Rapids, MN area as well.

Stanley #77 Mortising gauge. It still works, but the fence is a little tight, and the wood isn’t in the greatest shape, and is pretty tried out. Both thumb screws turn freely, allowing the mortise pins to move as they should.

SOLD
 
-
 
E.C.Stearns & Co saw set. It’s in ok shape, about 70% of the nickle plating remains. Some rust near the hammer/anvil area.

SOLD
 
-
 
Hand Wheel 7” diameter. I was going to use this for my leg vise, but I ended up using a self-made wooden screw instead. I started to clean it with a nylon cut in a drill, which is why part of the cast iron is shiny.

SOLD
 
-
 
16 Bits + 2 adjustable diameter bits, in canvas roll. Some bits are rusty, and some are cleaner. Most are Russel Jennings bits, with a few Stanley’s mixed in. Canvas roll is a little dirty and stained, and has a couple holes in it. Ties are broken, so it can’t be tied rolled up.
The list includes the following. There’s 4 types of bits, and they’re categorized by them below:

Russel Jennings (just Russel Jennings in a straight line, parallel to the shank)

#14

Irwin

#6, #12

Russel
Jennings
No. 100
Stanley
100 Plus

4/16, 6/16, 14/16, 15/16

Russel
Jennings
No. 100

#5, #7, #8, 9/16, 10/16, #11, #12, 13/16, 16/16

$40 shipped.

3 Braces. I believe 2 are Stanleys, and unsure of the 3rd (middle). Two are too rusty on that part to read, and the other is a No. 771B-12 In sweep (Right)

SOLD nbsp;
-
 
Stanley #95 Butt Mortise Gauge. I’d say roughly 30% nickel plating left maybe.

SOLD
 
-
 
Lee Valley Shoulder Vise Screw. It’s pretty much brand new. The screw was never used, but the garter plate/nut might have some scuffs on the paint, since I was originally doing some test fitting to use as my wagon vise screw, but ended up going with a wooden one instead. Lee Valley sells it for $29.50, and $7.95 for the handle. I’m including the screw and the handle, with all the original screws for it.

SOLD*

Mos those bits look decent, but a little hard to tell from the downsized LJ picture. If you get a chance can you post some more pictures showing the business ends? Don’t worry about the adjustable ones. And are any missing say 4-16?

I will take a look tonight once I get home from work, take a few pictures, and compile a list of what’s there.

Here’s a link to a larger version of that one, but will get a shot showing the snails and cutting edges later.

On the braces, the one on the left looks like a modern Stanley to me. The 771b should be a Recent Millers Falls Lion Brace. The one in the middle looks like a PEXTO or PS&W Sampson Brace. May be marked 8210 or 8010.

Good to know Wayne. I’m sure I could get a little better idea of what they are if I cleaned up a little, just to see markings. I may have to do that, but I don’t want to go all out and clean ‘em all at this point.

The left one does look like a modern, since it’s got painted black wood, and plastic ratchet switch (I’m so bad at brace terms…)

Awesome Mos, thanks for those. I’ll let ajshobby or anyone else have first dibs, but if no one else takes them I will.
