2 Patented Center Head Combo Tools2 Patented Center Head Combo Tools  Tough to find these have been in the collection for 20 -30 years.   The smaller one I believe a Standard Tool Co. example.  The blade is marked Standard Tool Co. Athol.  It is a 2 piece affair that was pinned together.  The tag on it indicates it came from Roger Smith back in 1979. 

The larger one has a later Brown and Sharpe 12" blade in it. I believe it was made by Standard Tool Co as well.  It too is a two piece design that was pinned together. These are an interesting combination tool---a try and mitre square, center finder, depth gauge, and more.

Standard Take-Down Framing SquareThe Standard Take-Down Framing Square The copperized finish on this framing square was an upgrade option that Southington offered and not many people choose as this is the first one that I have seen.  It is simply marked "The Standard" and is in excellent condition.  The canvas case did its job, and is a bit tattered looking.  The 101 model according to the small pocket catalog that is included also offered their patented rafter tables that their 100 model did not.  Very Nice!! 

Good +  . . . . . . . $95.00      SOLD





Kenny's Patent Marking Gauge Pat Jan 4th 1870 This interesting piece is unmarked, as they all are, but it is a well known and very desirable patented tool from the 19th century.  Typically they have a Rosewood and Boxwood head, but this version has two boxwood ones.  As is often the case, these heads are both cracked, and one has been glued.  It is still operational and looks OK as is.  The brass rod is in super condition and has never been cleaned or abused.  Ready as is to be used, or with a simple restoration, this could be a highlight.  

Good+. . . . . . . . $150.00     SOLD

Starrett #439 Builders Square w/ 18 BladeStarrett #439 Builders Square w/ 18" Blade   The previous owner thought enough of this to build a special box to store it in.  He also engraved his name on an edge with an electric pen.  All the bubbles are good.  Overall it is very nice
