    Made a nice find today

    I found a nice Fillister plane today made by T.Tileston of Boston on Front Street stamped into the toe. $45.00 It's in great shape no cracks or checks.

    Nice plane Bart.
    The old woodies always catch my eye. I haven't tried one yet, but think i'll try making one or two sometime soon. I look forward to learning to fettle them.

    Real nice.
    Paul Revere, although known as a silversmith, used to make planes. Maybe you found an original...cha-ching

    I have been looking for the electric cord or starting rope. Do you have it?

    I need to sharpen it. I just sharpened 11 chisels on my Work-sharp the other day took about 40 minutes.

    I thought it might be part of a POLE LATHE - no 'lectricity - jest foot power.

    I didn't know that.

    Paul Revere has an interesting history if you follow it long enough. Some good...some...well where I live anyway where the rotting hulks of our first naval battle resides at low tide...all attributable to his blunders...not so good. Still an interesting history.

    Regardless, cha-ching would be right. With the brass fence, its conceivable that his foundry cast the metal part. I don't think foundries were too popular in that era.
    I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
