finally proof that the long winter is over. Our first local flea market of 2014. Maybe not one of my best days, but definitely not my worst either. We had some fun, some sun, some rain, and just good old spring weather.

My first find is my favorite. As you may know, I've started a healthy admiration for Sargent bench planes. My goal was to obtain a #400 series in every size type 3 or older. This was the last one I needed to complete that set. A beautiful type 2 #424. All period correct as well, including the cutter.

next up is an item that has nothing to do with hand planes. A fully functional hand operated drill press. I've wanted one of these for a while, but they usually tote a price tag in the hundreds, so its never fit the bill. When the vendor said $50, I didn't even dicker.

Finally a reasonably priced #203.

Musical instrument Guitar accessory Wood Guitar Purple


A Stanley type 3 #35. This has seen better days, and will never be a user again, but after showing the vendor the shortcomings of the old girl, we came to a reasonable offer.

And since I've completed the #400 bench plane series, and these were there, well priced and in decent shape, we might as well head down a new road with a new set of goals. How about all Sargent Transitionals. Also, twisted lat or older.

A few others, a couple nice user #4's, a restorable Simmons, and an Eagle label Stanley level that I'm pretty sure is made from oak.

A good day to be a "collector, restorer, and a typical rust hunter."

Don, that drill and the 203 have been on my short list for years. Great snag.

Nice haul, Don. I would love to have a post drill, but just don't have room right now. As a result, I've had to pass up several that were complete and priced in the $40-$60 range.

Looks great Don! That Jointer plane looks amazing. Your post is getting me ready for the big tool auction today. An entire estate's worth of antique tools are getting auctioned off in Denver. I'm selling my 1850's cabinet maker's tool chest in the auction (the one in my profile picture). I have it loaded in the car and it looks like I'm getting ready for an Umpa Lumpa funeral!

You'll love that post drill. I have a 1910 Champion Blower and Forge post drill that is in great shape. I can't mount it to the wall where I'm living, so I plan to make a post stand for it.

Walden, do you have a listing link you could post for the Denver auction? Would love to head down to it :)

Sargents scare me. That's all I'd need, to start going after another brand-specific quest! I have entertained the idea of an all-type Union metallic and transitional set, I'm off to a good start there, and possibly filling out my collection of Ohios. Sargents are pretty scarce here in the tundras.

Best of luck to you, sir! Oh, and tell us what you need to fill out your Sargent trannies collection!

A few others, a couple nice user #4's, a restorable Simmons, and an Eagle label Stanley level that I'm pretty sure is made from oak.

A good day to be a "collector, restorer, and a typical rust hunter."
Nice score. I thought when i saw your wife with the level it was hers.

I did like that sargent. I ALMOST brought it home. I love that drill. Can't wait to see it cleaned up.

Its Spring. First 2014 Antique show

finally proof that the long winter is over. Our first local flea market of 2014. Maybe not one of my best days, but definitely not my worst either. We had some fun, some sun, some rain, and just good old spring weather.

My first find is my favorite. As you may know, I've started a healthy admiration for Sargent bench planes. My goal was to obtain a #400 series in every size type 3 or older. This was the last one I needed to complete that set. A beautiful type 2 #424. All period correct as well, including the cutter.

next up is an item that has nothing to do with hand planes. A fully functional hand operated drill press. I've wanted one of these for a while, but they usually tote a price tag in the hundreds, so its never fit the bill. When the vendor said $50, I didn't even dicker.

Finally a reasonably priced #203.

A Stanley type 3 #35. This has seen better days, and will never be a user again, but after showing the vendor the shortcomings of the old girl, we came to a reasonable offer.

Congrats on the lovely Sargent planes, and that hand dril press…awesome score!

Damn, DonW is after all the old trannies, too! Most of mine appear to be Type1's…guess I better hurry and grab the lil 3407 next time I see one! LOL.

Hey Don, any interest in looking for extra original Sargent transitional lever caps while you're out with the wife? I've got a few in the '14 to '18" range that have Stanley caps…really bothers me! :)

Thanks Don.

Don, you already have a wonderful collection of planes and these are certainly going to improve it. What a great find.
