Item R7 - Stanley No. 76 Boxwood Mortise Gage.
The No. 76 gage was made from about 1863
to 1917. It is not particularly commonly seen today. This one is not marked
with the Stanley name or number, but it has the 1872 patent date stamped on it
(for thumb screw, shoe and mustache wear plate), and is undeniably Stanley.
There is a check in the boxwood on one side of the fence, and the tool needs a
quick cleaning. It a solid heavy gage that feels good in the hand. Good+
