News from mjdtools.com World Headquarters

G reetings from Avoca, New York, from which point this missive emanates even through we are hundreds of miles away in Nashua, New Hampshire.

Our new location at the Radisson Hotel of Nashua has been greeted with rave reviews by all in attendance. The facility is first class, the hotel restaurant is just around the corner from the auction room and the parking lot trading area is bigger and infinitely better maintained than that to which we have become accustomed. Just to be safe, and, more importantly, to ensure the well being of others, we performed a stress test on the hotel pub last night to the sounds of much laughter and glass clinking. We do it all for you.

Today's Photo Montage shows the tools being unpacked this morning, the second is a view of the room layout, and the final photo shows the auction preview as it appeared about three hours before the official preview starting time. The final photo also shows Judge Tom Wisnieski presiding over Tool Court, where an afternoon of gavel banging and harsh sentencing dealt with transgressors of the unwritten laws of the tool world. A parking lot buyer who failed to whine and ask for a "better price" before purchasing an item was sentenced to probation and community service and a particularly harsh sentence was handed out to an unremorseful buyer of a Stanley No. 193 A fibre board plane.

We have people here from five countries and States from California to Maine to Florida. We encourage you to join us for two great auctions on Friday, April 20th and Saturday, April 2st. See you soon.

Today's Featured Tool Description

Unmarked : Antique Miner's Canary Cage. Ceramic Water Bowl. Rare & Excellent. Length: 6.50 Inches. An ANTIQUE MINER'S CANARY CAGE complete with its original ceramic water bowl. These cages were provided to miners to take with them into dark mine shafts. The presence of poisonous gases seeping into the shaft was provided by these colorful birds, who were just dying to let someone know of the danger lurking in the air. There are two bars missing from the cage--a possible sign that, despite the greater good its duty provided, the bird decided to head elsewhere. Abraham Lincoln told a story about the man who had been tarred and feathered and ridden out of town on a rail. When asked what he thought of it, the man responded, "If it wasn't for the honor of the thing, I'd rather walk." A cage, but the bird has walked. (GOOD+). This item was sold on October 27, 2012 for $80.00. jpg_file

jpg_file Lot 750. An extremely rare and exceptionally well preserved DOUBLE IRON CAST IRON SCRUB PLANE, No. 162, by Sargent & Company, New Haven, Connecticut. This plane is based on a U.S. Design Patent issued to prolific Sargent inventor Albert A. Page on September 22, 1914. The dual irons, set "side by side" is a unique configuration among patented American planes. We are aware of only a few examples of this plane in existence. This is, by far, the best example of which we are aware. Fully 95% of the original black japan finish remains on this never need to upgrade example. Highly recommended. From the Don Riley Collection. (FINE).(2,000.00 - 4,000.00) Length: 11 Inches.
