A tool chest from 1866

I found a book online that lists out the tools required for working in a workshop:

The book is
Our Workshop: The Art of Carpentry and Joinery by George Routledge and Sons, 1866

Found online here:

The list looks like this:

  • Small hand saw*
  • Sash and Tenon Saw
  • Table and compass saw
  • Axe
  • Jack Plane (double iron)*
  • Smoothing Plane*
  • Spokeshave*
  • Cutting Gauge*
  • Marking Gauge
  • Firmer Chisels 1/4″, 1/2″, 3/4″, 1″ *
  • Mortise Chisels 1/4″, 1/2″, 5/8″
  • Three Gouges 1/2″, 3/4″, 1-1/4″
  • Gimlets and bradawls
  • Joiners Hammer
  • Mallet *
  • Screwdriver *
  • Brace (36 black bits) *
  • Pincers
  • Compasses
  • Square *
  • Bevil *
  • Rule *
  • Grindestone
