Stanley Planes will be found on the Stanley Plane & Tool Page.

Some of these companies produced quality lines of woodworking planes and tools competing with Stanley in the marketplace. Famous names such as the Simmons Hardware Co. of Saint Louis MO, whose tools were known as Keen Kutter Brand, or Winchester of Gun making fame, were for the most Patented Leonard Bailey Split Frame Plane part merely distributors, rather than actually producing their own lines of tools. Simmons Hdwe. Co. AKA Keen Kutter did it well, while the Winchester antique tool story was not as pretty.

There will be rare and desirable patented woodworking planes from known and recognized makers including Leonard Bailey as well as a good sampling of quality metal woodworking planes created by various lesser known makers like Steers, Morris, Davis Level & Tool Co. Worrall, Phillips, Standard Rule, and others. These patented planes are from the era when people like Leonard Bailey and other entrepreneurs and inventors with the spirit of Yankee ingenuity were producing woodworking tools and patented planes for the American worker, and created some wonderful collectible planes for today's collectors.

Sargent began producing and marketing woodworking planes in 1884 even though they had been in business for many years prior to that Sargent #29 Rabbit Plane producing hardware, locks and other metal products. During their early years they produced a line of planes that rivaled Stanley in design, quality, and popularity. KK / Keen Kutter #71 Router Plane

Millers falls came into the woodworking plane marketplace late in the game, but due to their reputation and experience producing other quality tools they had a loyal following. Many of their planes are hard to differentiate from their Stanley counterparts in look or quality.

Ohio Tool Co. was a major competitor of Stanley and produced a line of metal planes similar to Stanley. They also produced wooden planes as well as a few unique and rare design patented planes.

Union Tool co. also produced a line of planes similar to Stanley's line before being bought out. Stanley continued to sell the Union Tool line of planes and tools as a second line for a number of years before dropping the name and line altogether.

Vintage and antique tools are popular not only because of the superior quality, but often times these antique edge tools can be had for a fraction of what is being charged for quality tools made today.

With a bit of knowledge and judicious shopping you can outfit a toolbox, shop, or workbench with quality antique & vintage woodworking tools at a reasonable price and get full value for your dollar.

Slicks are large chisels and oftentimes large framing chisels are called slicks. In general they can range in width from 2" up 6" or so with large examples being very hard to find. Most are socket style, but there are also tang slicks that can be found. Occasionally a gouge slick turns up, and even less often crank neck slicks appear. Names like Wilkinson, Barton, L. I. & J. White, Witherby, James Swan, and more come to mind as the premier makers of the 19th century.
