News from mjdtools.com World Headquarters

G reetings from Avoca, New York where we are busy packing and shipping your purchases from our recent auctions at the Marriott Hotel East in Indianapolis.

We will be picking up tools in New Jersey and Southeastern Pennsylvania tomorrow. If you are in the area and have items for inclusion in our upcoming sales, please give us a call at (800) 869-0695. Operators are standing by.

First, thanks to all of you who made room reservations at the Marriott for our October Auctions following this weekends auctions. The hotel was impressed with the people and the number of rooms reserved for the Fall and we are now working on our dates for the 2019 season. To make reservations for our October 18th & 19th, 2019 auctions at the Indianapolis Marriott East, 7202 East 21st Street, Indianapolis, Indiana, just enter the following in your web browser: https://book.passkey.com/e/49835538 and it will take you to our Registration Page. When you get to the web page, just select "Attendee" from the drop-down list and it will take you to the room registration page. We look forward to seeing all of you at our great new location. To contact the hotel by phone, just call (317) 352-1231.

As an added inducement to get some fresh faces at our Nashua Sales, today's Photo Montage consists of photos from last Fall's Auction at the Radisson Hotel of Nashua. All photos are by Martin J. Donnelly Auctions' Official Photographer of Record, Tom Wisnieski. Some of you may know Tom as a hog oiler, pencil sharpener and horse bog shoe collector of note and the Master of the Orchestrated Unpacking Showcase following tool auctions. Thanks, Tom, for all that you do. To make reservations for the Nashua auctions at the Radisson Hotel of Nashua, 11 Tara Boulevard Nashua, New Hampshire, just call (603) 888-9970 and mention the Martin J. Donnelly Antique Tool Auctions.

The first photo shows the Radisson Hotel, which looks not unlike a Tudor castle, complete with battlements at the top. During the sale we staiopn archers above to ensure the safety of auction attendees. The hotel sets aside a large parking lot for tool trading, which begins at dawn on Thursday morning. There is no sales tax in New Hampshire and fresh stuff frequently arrives fresh from an old shop where it is quickly picked clean.

The second photo shows the chairs the night before the auction and the following photo shows the crowd filling them up. The final view is a look from above at the parking lot trading, together with some bright, spring green--something we could use here. We look forward to seeing many of you in Nashua and a various way points between then and now.

Today's Featured Tool Description

Stanley Rule & Level No. 171: Door Trim Router Plane. Complete: 3 Cutters. New Cond., Orig. Box. Length: 11.00 Inches. Those who have made it their vocation to acquire Stanley tools in new condition in their original boxes are aware of an essential fact: The likelihood of a tool being found in its original box is inversely proportional to the degree of difficulty in returning that tool to the box after it is first assembled. Block planes are often found with their original carton for the simple reason that it made a handy storage place. Accordingly, except in the case of the rarest planes, block planes in the box do not command much of a premium. On the other hand, the tool offered here is close to the top of the list of collectible "in the box" Stanley tools. Not only is it impossible to get it back in the box without fully disassembling it, it is nearly impossible to get it back in the box after it is completely taken apart. The small parts, including the instruction and the two additional cutting irons were consequently very quickly lost as the plane deteriorated in quality for that want of protection. This was true in most cases, but not all. We offer an exceptionally well preserved example complete with all cutters and instructions in its original box with full paper label. Mint and boxed, and offered without apology. (FINE). This item was sold on April 4, 2001 for $1,395.00. jpg_file

Just Added to the Auctions

jpg_file Lot 600. An extremely rare and nearly perfectly preserved PHILLIPS PATENT PROTOTYPE PLANE as produced by C.C. Harlow, Bridgewater, Massachusetts. This plane, which is similar to, but not completely identical to the plane shown on page 44 of Roger K. Smith's "Patented and Transitional Planes in America, Volume 2" is marked with the "C.C. Harlow/Bridgewater, Massachusetts" designation on the skate. In the Smith book, the author speculates that the plane was produced in the 1860's as a prototype for the patented plane of Russell Phillips of Gardner, Maine. It is fashioned from cast brass and looks never to have been used for the purpose for which it was made. The handle is fashioned from Brazilian Rosewood as is the facing on the fence. Only the second example of this plane that we have been privileged to offer for sale. (FINE).(10,000.00 - 20,000.00) Length: 11 Inches.
