These planes were advertised widely in the early part of the 20th century as being suited for installing door hinges and locks. Known for their distinctive green japanning and always with ?pat. applied for" cast in large letters, but no patent has ever been found. Manufactured by I.N. Sutton of Atlantic, IA.

Mayo is best known as the guy who improved the Phillips patent plow, but he also manufactured these block planes, which are far more rare. 8-1/8" sole, pivoting lever cap. The original cap screw with ornate engraved ?M" has been replaced by a plain screw, and the cutter is also a replacement and there's a brass piece that bridges the adjustment slot.

Smoothing plane with 8" sole and 2" Johnson cutter. The lever cap is hooked onto a metal hook cast into the bed. It has "Patent 7855" cast into the lever cap, which is a patent that's attributable to Wingfield & Rowbotham of Sheffield, a firm founded in 1751 and better known for its edge tools and cutlery.

Birdsill Holly received his patent in 1852 for the first commercially successful metallic plane. This 18" jointer with a smooth sole (the dimpled soles would come later) is identical to that shown on page 22 of PTAMPIA I, except that it has a single unmarked cutter. Top of the rosewood tote has been rounded over, the bed has been repainted, and the rosewood knob is probably a well done replacement, but overall a beautifully preserved part of American planemaking history. From the collection of Cecil Holmes. Good+ 500 - 1000 **All absentee bids must be submitted by end of day Friday, Nov. 1st. Current high bids can be obtained by calling our office at (800) 248-8114.

Most examples of the very rare Hardy patent sold by Boston Metallic Plane Co., with its large holes in the sole that reduced friction but increased breakage, are jack planes or longer. This is a 9" smoothing plane, only the second we've seen. It has six tapered holes tapped into the sole which look original, as if to attach a wooden sole, which would make no sense but that's what it looks like. Tip of the tote skillfully repaired, lever cap has some grooves scored into it, otherwise very clean. Sandusky cutter. From the collection of Cecil Holmes. Good+ 400 - 800 **All absentee bids must be submitted by end of day Friday, Nov. 1st. Current high bids can be obtained by calling our office at (800) 248-8114.

Super rare example of Holly's early "shoebuckle" lever cap design that influenced the Stanley 110. See PTAMPIA I, page 39. Instead of a screw to hold the lever cap, it has the cast brass wedge as shown in Holly's 1852 patent. Very clean, good turned maple knob held by screw through sole, Moulson Bros. cutter with some light pitting. Fine 1000 - 2000 **All absentee bids must be submitted by end of day Friday, Nov. 1st.
