LOT OF TWO PLATED SHEFFIELD BRACES. Two examples of the thumb-pad sliding release catch patented by Robert Marples (see Eaton, p. 38); one was made by Robert Marples but marked by Tillotson Co., which marketed his braces, super clean with unusual scalloped edges to the plating, beech with rosewood head with a couple of tight checks. The other is by William Marples, a little more wear but still very clean, thumb pad is missing from the catch, ebony head with ivory ring with one gap.

Very unusual design features, including rotating wooden grip, very well fitted, and uncommon hinged jaw chuck that uses a hand-forged wingnut to grip a hardwood plug that holds the bit. 17" long overall, 5" sweep, very cool. Good+ 60-120 E-215 2019-04-19T00:00:00+01:00 2019-04-19T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/2825/e-215 E-215. SCOTTISH PATTERN BRACE. Robert Sorby. Six-sided steel body, tight rosewood head with brass plug, marked by Sorby on the chuck, immaculate condition, 8" sweep. Fine 75-150 E-214 2019-04-19T00:00:00+01:00 2019-04-19T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/2824/e-214 E-214. BEECH FRAMED BRACE. Robert Marples. Robert Marples (aka "the other Marples") was granted this registered design patent for an "Improved Double-Bound Carpenters' Brace with Octagon Compound Lever Pad" in 1857 to compete with William Marples' patented ultimatum design. These braces are far more rare than the ultimatum designs Robert produced when William's patents expired, and lack the rotating grip of a true ultimatum. Made of beech, which has worn down over the years so the brass framing is a little proud of the wood, clearly marked with the patent. Head has a couple of chips to the edge, made without an ivory ring, Hermitage Works medallion. Good 100-200 E-213 2019-04-19T00:00:00+01:00 2019-04-19T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/2823/e-213 E-213. EBONY FRAMED BRACE. William Marples Ultimatum. Nice clean example of the classic ebony Ultimatum, long nozzle, clean lion and unicorn mark but without Marples' name and a generic head medallion. Ivory ring is discolored but complete.

An uncommon brace, with its usually missing detachable handle, nickel 90%, wood handles fine. The ratchet mechanism does not seem to work properly. Good 100-200 E-211 2019-04-19T00:00:00+01:00 2019-04-19T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/2821/e-211 E-211. COMBINATION DRILL BRACE. Millers Falls No. 182.

All steel with wide flat head, 8" sweep. Wynn Timmins was a maker of iron tools formed in Birmingham in 1887.

Tower Lyon advertised these drills as the Whitney patent, but the patent date given is actually for a method of making drill bits. This is the uncommon variant with the drill storage container with the brass cap in the handle (no bits); elaborate red and gold pinstriping is 80% complete. Good+ 100-200 E-083 2019-04-19T00:00:00+01:00 2019-04-19T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/2693/e-083 E-083. RATCHET BIT BRACE. Millers Falls 5010. MF's top of the line and hands down the best brace ever made. Fully boxed ratchet, chrome plated, oilite bearings, universal jaws, red plastic permaloid head and handle. They don't make them like this any more and probably never will again. Some scratching to plastic and minor loss of plating in spots. Good+ 80-150 E-081 2019-04-19T00:00:00+01:00 2019-04-19T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/2691/e-081 E-081. LOT OF TWO WOODEN BRACES.

H. G. Long Co. Ebony Ultimatum type brace, very clean, brass has some minor scratching but no damage and has never been polished, complete ivory ring and good medallion in head, one screw missing.
