Not machinist tools

These are not a machinist tools but they are tools. Non brass parts of the body are 410 stainless steel and the irons are 0-1.

And I will have to qualify these as shop made tools, not home made, as they are made as a product to sell.

Some chasing hammers I made

Some of these are old,and the "graceful"ones more recently made.

Most of these were made from 1" dia. drill rod. The larger headed hammer with the shorter handle is for driving engraving chisels. It is mild steel thoroughly case hardened/

The handles of the chasing hammers are ash. I made them too. The "graceful" hammers have hickory handles I bought years ago,Tatum brand. For very small ball pein hammers. I wish I had more.

These are all for silver work. I drew the graceful ones to a spring blue temper,about 52 R.C..

Obviously,1 is a blank ready to mill the faces flat,and mill the eye out. First,I'd smooth out the surface nicely,then mill the flats,and smooth them so as not to leave sluffed over edges,and leave everything nice and crisp.

The handles are stained with potassium permanganate. It leaves a nice brown color. Finished over with Tru Oil gunstock finish.

Some planes I made

I have made quite a few infill planes,but didn't take pictures of them except for these.

The 2 steel planes are dovetailed together by hand. The small one is like a 1/2 size salesman's sample I saw in a collection. Very rare,and you never see them,so I made one for myself. The brass shoulder plane is stuffed with rosewood, Has adjustable mouth,and is 1 3/8" wide.

The 1/2 size one is also stuffed with rosewood,and is the only plane I have seen with the "sacrificial" screw on the front. You tap on it to advance the blade. usually on the rear to retract the blade,and you tap on the top of the blade to advance it.

I may have posted these before,but can't recall.

An Ellipsograph(oval drawing tool)

This is an 18th.C. style ellipsograph I made with my new journeyman about a year before I retired. It was seen on The Woodwright's Shop being used by Marcus Hansen,my old journeyman from the Musical Instrument Maker's Shop.

It is mahogany and brass. I taught my new journeyman how to make concave knurls while making this device,and the knurls were use on the knobs seen here. Also seen is a little swivel knife attachment that can be used to cut out paper patterns of ellipses,should need be.

The Anthony Hay Cabinet Shop in Williamsburg,Va. used this device to reproduce the decorated,veneered interior of a tool chest which you can now see there.

The 3rd. photo shows the "T" tracks that the brass guide blocks slide in. The action is quite smooth.
