Offered for purchase


A Most Uncommon Du Mont Tool Patent 1901 Corner Brace. Measuring 18" long and this weighs 3 lbs 6 oz unboxed. Charles S. Du Mont of Buffalo, NY was granted Pat. No. 682,263 on Sept. 10, 1901 for the design of this tool. I saw some place that Du Mont was in partnership with Charles Amidon for a while who patented the first of this style of brace in 1984. The jaws are the basic Amidon Patent style with no spring. This is in decent condition and was cleaned and it's not one of my more stellar restoration efforts either. Kind of tough to work around a tool like this. The plating is pretty much a memory except for a few spots and what is there is discolored. The chuck is good. There are a few spots of pitting on the frame. The grip handles and pad are reasonably good but they do have some dings. Mechanically this is sound and works okay. I have to say that this tool is fairly uncommon because I sure ain't seen too much around and information on the company is equally as scarce. I'm going to plug this into the shipping calculator at the 4 - 5 lb rate but it will fit a Large Flat Rate box so the maximum shipping anywhere in the USA will be $17.60. Just wait till I get the Ebay invoice out to get the right amount. International shipping will be expensive because of the weight, nothing I can do about that. Not a perfect a example but still a good collectible American patented brace for sure!

The full size picture is at the bottom of the listing page. Please read The Rules Of Game as well.

And remember..the more ya buy, the cheaper dey fly!

(Formally known as The Fine Print)

Priority Mail items less than $50 are sent at actual shipping & with Delivery Confirmation plus a small charge for packing. Smaller items are sent via 1st Class mail with Delivery Confirmation at a flat rate which includes the cost of the padded mailer which I do NOT get for free (and they get more expensive as they get bigger in size so that is factored in as well) and the extra packing time. The only exception for both Priority and First Class are items that I feel are fragile or valuable enough that warrant insurance and that will be included in the shipping cost. I only ship via the Post Office. I do not ship UPS or Fedex (and they sure ain't any cheaper).

Ebay has been running promotions for sellers offering free shipping. If an item is not listed with free shipping, there is no way for me to take advantage of that promotion. Otherwise the shipping is as shown on the listing. I spend a lot of time and money in gas out buying these items, over and above the actual cost of the the item, and that is year round. I am always happy to combine shipping on multiple items, These are sent out at actual cost plus a small packing fee (which rarely goes over $2.00 no matter how many items unless there is something big or odd).

PA buyers must add 6% sales tax or provide an exemption certificate.

International bidders are welcome. International shipping is EXPENSIVE. On average 2 to 3 times what the listed USA shipping cost is. International shipments have a minimum $2.00 US packing fee in addition to the shipping costs. Email me for a shipping quote before placing a bid or a Buy-It-Now.  Please allow at least 24 hrs for me to get the item packaged and the correct oversea's shipping costs after the auction has ended.   I do not do any packing on Saturdays or Sundays. The same applies for shipping quotes before an item ends. Items over 1 lb in weight tend to get very expensive to ship internationally. Items that are over 4 lbs packaged weigh ARE very expensive to ship. Customs Declarations are at face value. I do not mark items as gifts.

Do not hit the Instant Payment if you are buying multiple items until I get you a combined invoice. I prefer to have things cleared up every 10 days to 2 weeks. Just please email me, and tell me that you are either bidding or going to be bidding on other items (I don't need to know which ones).

Feedback. I leave feedback about once a week or so. Don't get excited if I don't leave you feedback right away. Just easier to sit down and do a bunch at a time for me.

Any questions, feel free to email me. However, please keep in mind that I am NOT on-line 24 hours a day. Thank you.
