    More Tools and some books

    I decided to post a couple more pics of some items already shown, and I've made some changes too. All prices are plus shipping. I'll take cash, check or personal paypal [no fees.] Click on any image for a larger version.

    First up, a Union 6" combo square. The scribe has been bent, I think to keep it safely in the body of the head. The level is intact. I took the photos to show the small amount of blue paint on one side. $22 SOLD





    12" combo square, rule says Stanley, protractor by Millers Falls, with intact level. I incorrectly said the 45/90 head had one intact level, but it doesn't, both levels are shot. Scribe is very nice. Also, I'm adding a centering head, but the locking mechanism has been repaired on it, and it may not last under a lot of use.
    $10.





    Stanley 220 plane. Standard angle block plane. No frills. The throat does not adjust, and there is no lateral lever. It is in fine shape, and I flattened and honed the blade. It will work out of the box. $15 SOLD













    Stanley No. 61 marking gauge. All wood, including a really nice threaded locking knob. Plenty of scribe left. Everything moves easily. In very nice condition. $10








    Big old nippers. That is a big nail they just cut through. Made in USA, with removable jaws. This is a monster. $5.




    BOOKS:
    Wood Finisher's Handbook by Sam Allen $5

    Making Whirligig & Other Wind Toys by Sharon Pierce $5 SOLD

    50 Handy Things to Make with Wood by Jack Kramer $3

    Shaker Furniture by Edward Deming Andrews and Faith Andrews - this book is a classic, with great B&W photos. Only selling because I have 2 copies. $5 SOLD

    Making Wood Toys That Move by Alan & Gill Bridgewater $5 SOLD

    Making Heirloom Toys by Jim Makowicki $8 SOLD

    Reproducing Antique Furniture by Franklin H. Gottshall - this is a hardbound book in excellent condition, with drawings and plans for about 30+ antique pieces including Queen Anne Tables, Lowboy, Sheraton Bench, a Grandfather clock, spice cabinet etc. Not for a novice to build from, but great inspiration and information. $10 SOLD





    I will be happy to ship books via USPS media mail, which should be pretty cheap in the USA. Crossing the northern border significantly raises shipping costs.

    Stanley 220 plane, mark as sold! Can never had to many of those laying around
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.
