I picked these up at a local rummage shop. If for any other reason I like old tools just to display in the “man cave”. The Draw knife is a Fulton. I don’t know much about old tools or if it’s worth is anything other than just looking cool to me for display. The plane looks to be a knock off of some sort. It doesn,t have any markings other than the underside of the part that holds the blade in place. (and yes, I am not too familiar with the nomenclature of these tools either LOL) It has a stamp that reads C 241. Any help on these is greatly appreciated!!

The block plane is also a Fulton, made by Sargent. Their version of the Stanley 110. Sears sold the Fulton line of tools.

And beyond what bandit wrote, both can be restored to usability without a whole lot of effort.

Good to know, thanks for the info. Yep, it’s a Fulton. I put my glasses on and found the stamp on the blade. It says Fulton Warranted. How’d I do at $16 for both??

Get the rust off that drawknife, sharpen it up, and try it out on a stick of firewood or whatever. They are pretty fun especially on wood you’ve split along the grain (rived). Or you can use one to peel bark pretty quickly.

Aside from a little surface rust, the draw knife was razor sharp so someone obviously took care of it. The plane needs a little clean up and the blade needs to be honed but they appear to be usable. Like I said earlier, I’d like them if they’re just used for display purposes but something being functional has a lot more meaning. Thanks for the link. It has some interesting info on it.

Have your say...
