On Steve's last rust hunting thread, I mentioned that I was going to look at a suitcase full of wood planes that was offered up for sale in Craiglist. Steve being reluctant to find any woodies for me; no doubt due to some undue pressure from the Michigan mafiosa tool boss who he would have to cut in on the action; I felt compelled to make a deal.
Now I have severe buyer remorse. What have I done!
There a two without blades (small beader? and the dado plane) and a couple that need some loving care. Also included was a small saw vise I did not need, but it clamps very well. It was an all or nothing deal. I see some time spent cleaning and sharpening will be needed. The owners name is on them with the date of 1943. I will post more pictures and probably some questions as I do a more complete inventory.
