In addition to TON (FUTON, BATON, CANTON, PROTON),
there is GUE:

   GUE:  (n.) gju, a violin-like musical instrument of Shetland
        (n.) a rogue; vagabond
 FUGUE: (n.) a musical composition
        (v.) to be in a dreamlike state of consciousness
  BAGUE: (n.) (architecture) the annular molding or group of
                    moldings dividing a long shaft or clustered column
CANGUE: (n.) a yoke-like instrument formerly used
                    in China to punish criminals
PROGUE: (n.) food; victuals (v.) forage; (n.) a sharp point; goad
               (v.) to prick; goad

BAGUE and PROGUE are not valid in International English Scrabble, though the words are present in either or both the Merriam-Websters Unabridged Dictionary and Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary. The second noun definition given for gue also exists, but is noted as obsolete.
