Sargent Woodworking Planes

Sargent #42 Scraper PlaneSargent VBM # 42 Scraper Plane  The condition of this Sargent #42 Scraper is very nice.  The VBM stands for Very Best Made and Sargent did put out a quality product.

Good + . . . . .  $60.00     SOLD!!.







Sargent 707 Auto Set Smooth PlaneSargent 707 Auto Set Smooth Plane  Nice overall condition.  Some loss of finish on the bed of the body.  Long proper cutter w/ stamp faint.  No rust or pitting.  You can still see the milling marks on the sole.  Good throat.

The tag indicates I sold this to the collector in July of 1991.  30 years ago.  It is one of those planes I'll remember buying forever.  It was late afternoon on a Sunday at a 3 day old garage sale in Florida.  Interesting and nice.

Good + . . . . . . $595.00         SOLD!!






Sargent 507 Rabbet Block PlaneSargent 507 Rabbet Block Plane   Great condition.  The 507 is a better design than the Stanley 140 Rabbeting Block Plane in one way, but because of that feature with the opening on both sides it is a weaker design and is oftentimes is found cracked in the cheek area on either side.  This one is damage free and still has 90% or more of the japanning.  The cutter has plenty of life left in it as well.  A nice example.  

Good . . . . . $195.00      SOLD!!

Sargent Shaw Patent # 7 C (#2) Corrugated Bottom Smooth PlaneSargent Shaw Patent # 7 C (# 2 Size) Corrugated Bottom Smooth Plane  This is a very nice example of Sargent's Shaw Patent # 7 a very hard to find # 2 size plane. The Shaw's Patent plane was Sargent Tool Co's. answer to Stanley's Bedrock design.  They were only offered for about 8 years beginning in 1910.  An interesting idea, but not nearly as elegant as Stanley's Bedrock design and so never became as popular making them much harder to come by. 

This example retains 90% or better of the original japanning with most missing on one of the inside cheeks.  The proper cap is marked 7 on the backside and VBM for Very Best Made out front.  The Mahogany tote and knob are solid, very nice and look great.  Nice long Sargent cutter marked 7.  No rust or pitting to speak of, and has not been over cleaned.  Good honest patina.   A rare opportunity to add a great Sargent Tool Co. piece to the tool collection.    

Fine . . . . . $700.00    SOLD!!

Sargent # 22 C (7 size) Shaws Patent Corrugated Jointer Plane Sargent # 22 C (7 size) Shaw's Patent Corrugated Jointer Plane   Shaw Patent planes, with their odd frog design, were Sargent Tool Company's counter to the Stanley Bedrock design. They work OK once properly set up, but the design is not nearly as elegant as the Bedrock design with the captive pins that are easy to get at, and the machined frog to body design. The Shaw patent looks similar and has the same general idea, but it is not nearly as well executed.  It was not as well received by the public either, and so are far harder to find that the equivalent size Stanley Bedrock.

This example has a proper size cutter but is marked 18. Also the rear handle looks like it might be a Rosewood replacement.

Good + . . . . . $165.00       SOLD!!




Sargent # 18 (6 size) Shaw's Patent Fore PlaneSargent # 18 C (6 size) Corrugated Bottom Shaw's Patent Fore Plane   Shaw Patent planes, with their odd frog design, were Sargent Tool Company's counter to the Stanley Bedrock design. The idea works OK once properly set up, but the design is not nearly as elegant as the Bedrock design with the captive pins that are easy to get at, and the machined frog to body design. The Shaw patent looks similar and has the same general idea, but it is not nearly as well executed.  It was not as well received by the public either, and so examples are far harder to find that the equivalent size Stanley Bedrock.

This example is pretty nice.  The cutter is the proper size cutter but is marked 10 being from a rare model the size of a 4 1/2.  The body is nice.  The wood is proper and nice.  The frog looks to have been repainted. 

Good + . . . . . $125.00       SOLD!!

Sargent T & G PlanesSargent 1068 - 1067 Combination Tongue & Groove Planes   Sargent made some very innovative and interesting designed planes and these T & G planes they offered fall into that category nicely.  These are both complete and damage free, but as with many of their products the nickel is weak.  There is a 1068 & 1067 offered as a pair.

Good . . . . .$ 225.00 / Pair           SOLD






Sargent # 1508 "Lady Bug" Rabbet & Dado PlaneSargent # 1508 1/2 "Lady Bug" Rabbet & Dado Plane This was Sargent's answer to the Stanley #90 series of planes and came in a range of sizes much like the Stanley 90 -94.  Sargent went a step further and also offered these with an optional fence and depth stop.  Those would be referred to with a 1/2 after the main number like 1508 in this case.  In other words it is proper and to be expected that many of these planes do not have the fence / rod and depth stop, even if the body is drilled for them.  This one does.  They were offered as an accessory. 

Good . . . . .$ 2250.00       SOLD






Sargent 507 Rabbet Block PlaneSargent 507 Rabbet Block Plane This Sargent 507 rabbet plane is in nice condition.  90% of the original jappaning or better.

Zenith Shaw's Patent #4 Size Smooth Plane by SargentZenith Shaw's Patent #4 Size Smooth Plane by Sargent  This plane was made by Sargent for the Marshall Wells Hardware Co who used Zentih as their brand name. They stamped / etched their distinctive logo into both sides and the cutter is marked as well.  It is a Shaw's patent with its Stanley Bedrock like idea for attaching the frog to the body.  It was not nearly as well thought out or as elegant or even well executed idea, but is certainly different from the norm.  It is all here, and all OK.  Used but not abused.

Good + . . . . .  $ 75.00      SOLD!!






Sargent 1080 Combination PlaneSargent 1080 Combination Plane in Box   This is complete and pretty nice. A couple of the cutters were modified, but most are like new in their original canvas roll.

Sargent Shaw's Patent # 8 Smooth Plane This model plane was Sargent's answer to the ever popular Stanley Bedrock series of planes.  With its unusual frog design and 3 screw adjusting mechanism, it ranks as one of the hardest and most desirable of all Sargent planes to collect or use.  This plane is in super original condition still retaining nearly all of its original black japanning and its exposed metal parts are rust and pit free.  The Mahogany knob and handle are very nice as well.  This plane has never been cleaned or messed with and is in excellent untouched original condition.  A tough one to find in this size and condition.

Sargent #407 (#2 Size) Smooth Plane Sargent #407 Type 2 (#2 size) Smooth Plane   This is a very nice example of an early plane by Sargent Tool Co. one of the major competitors of Stanley in the plane manufacturing business early in the last century.  Being a type 2 dates this plane from before 1910.  This plane retains most of its original japanning, and has a rich and even patina with no pitting or rust to speak of.  The early, proper and original Rosewood handle and knob are very nice as well.  The one apology is that the cutter has been replaced at some point with a Stanley one that dates from the teens.  A tough plane to find.

Good . . . . .$ 225.00            SOLD







Sargent # 722 Tilt Knob Jointer PlaneSargent # 722 Tilt Knob Jointer Plane  Sargent's Auto set line of planes was very popular and a well made plane.  The 722 was the largest they offered and had an unusual tilting front knob. 

Good + . . . . .$ 225.00             SOLD







3 Sargent Scrub Planes 3 Sargent Scrub Planes   This group of planes may not look special to the casual observer, but all metal Sargent scrub planes are becoming pretty hard to find, and that two cutter model in the middle is one of the rarest of all planes that Sargent ever produced.  These Sargent scrub planes are the #161, #161, & #162 and date from the teens into the 20's or so with the rare 162 only having been made in one production run.  The #162 is often found missing pieces as they were very hard to adjust and oftentimes the owner just took out 1 cutter and a cap and used it with just one cutter.

Good . . . . .$1750.00        SOLD




Sargent #407 Smooth Plane w/ Brass Name PlaqueSargent #407 Smooth Plane w/ Brass Name Plaque  This is a rare variation of the Sargent #407 / 2 size plane.  Very few of these are found with this plaque and even fewer in the small #2 size.  The condition is nice, and the cutter proper.  No damage or problems.  The tag on the side indicates the collector bought this from Dave Paling the famous California dealer back in 1981.  A nice plane, and a hard one to find.

Sargent Auto Set # 707 (#2) Smooth PlaneSargent Auto Set # 707 (#2) Smooth Plane  Sargent made 3 different versions of #2 size planes.  The Shaw's Patent which was numbered #7, the number 407 which had typical design, and this the #707 which is referred to as an Auto Set.  This looks like a nice plane but has two issues.  The top rim of the lever cap is damaged.  It holds the adjuster down and in place.  It has popped off and been re-attached.  It is not permanent. (see pic)  There is also a small crack at the side in front of the throat.  It turns the corner and goes about an 1/8" on either surface.  It does not reach the throat, but it is there. The wood is original and nice.  The cutter is proper, marked and nice.  A nice looking but slightly damaged small smooth plane with some good parts.
