News from mjdtools.com World Headquarters

G reetings from Avoca, New York where we have all returned safely following two great auctions in Indianapolis.

Many thanks to all of you who joined us or bid online or consigned items for the auctions. We had a full house in attendance each day. The Friday crowd caught us by surprise as we needed to acquire additional chairs from the hotel to accommodate everyone who needed a place to sit. One of the consequences of the large attendance was that the percentage of items sold to absentee bidders was the among the lowest we have experienced. Never fear, however, as we have two great auctions scheduled for May 3 and May 4 at the Radisson Hotel of Nashua, Nashua, New Hamphire. Please plan to join us.

We were loaded with great tools, which made for an interesting sale, particularly with the Civil War weapons from the Ray Fredrich Collection mixed in. The Stanley No. 1 in the original box from the Gene Culp Collection was hammered down at $2,900 and the Cyrus Hardy Patent smoothing plane by the Boston Metallic Plane Company sold for $1,800. The rare Model 1855 Springfield rifle brought $1,600, the Burnside cavalry cabine brought $1,300, the Gwynn & Campbell cavalry carbine sold for $1,900 and the early Allen & Thurber "pepperbox" pistol sold for $900.

Just a reminder to all of you to join us at our Spectacular Summer Auction, which will be held this year on July 18, 19 & 20, 2019 at the Donnelly Compound here in Avoca, New York. We are hoping (and praying) that the winter weaher has left us by the time of the Nashua auctions and we can do some civilized parking lot trading. We look forward to seeing you all again soon.

Today's Featured Tool Description

Unmarked : Hand Forged Shepherd's Crook. Most Unusual. Great Patina. Length: 5.50 Inches. Never having seen a shepherd's crook, it is difficult to say if this is such an animal, but it has the long handle and it looks as though this would do the trick in grabbing a sheep by the leg and getting it to go where you want it to. In today's world, Certified Sheep Counselors, employed by the United States Department of Agriculture would work with the errant ovine creatures to persuade them to comply with rational shepherd-given directions, provided those directions were in accordance with the provisions of the Federal Sheep Management Act. Anyone caught in possession of such a device would be subject to strict Federal penalties. Contraband. (GOOD+). This item was sold on May 19, 2000 for $95.00. jpg_file

Just Added to the Auctions

jpg_file Lot 350. An unused TYPE 15 SMOOTHING PLANE, No. 2, by STANLEY. The cutting iron is marked with the ca. 1920's era "Sweetheart" trademark on this plane, which is in brand new condition in its original pasteoboard box. The sides of the frog are colored with orange japanning-a practice that Stanley employed for a short period in the 1920's. A great No. 2 plane in top collector quality condition. From the Collection of E. Eugene "Gene" Culp, Wheeling, West Virginia. (FINE).(500.00 - 1,000.00) Length: 8 Inches.
