Although decades-old illustrations represent the bench planes in the main part of the catalog, artwork for the new No. Descriptions for the bench planes are identical to those used in 1949 except the word “goncalo” replaces the word “rosewood.” Although red frogs continue to be mentioned in catalog descriptions through 1967, a type 5 plane with other than a black frog has yet to be reported.
This website has primarily been set up in the hopes of assisting collectors, sellers and users in identifying the many types of woodworking planes that were manufactured by Sargent & Company over a 77 year period from 1887 to 1964.
I will add more information, such as Sargent history, catalogs etc. The background images for this website are taken from the cover of the 1911 Sargent Tool Book.
Over the last few years since I started posting information regarding vintage hand planes and tools, I've faced up to the fact that I really like these old rusty bits of metal, and can comfortably say I'm a vintage tool collector.
