    Help I've slid in & don't want to get out

    Here is what I picked up on my trip this week.

    Now with a little more time on my hands here are a few better pictures.

    I was able to pick up this nice #45 with a box of blades.
    I had an old rusty 45 that was given to me & that is where the long bars came from.

    The old transitional plane I plan to make a scrub plane out of.

    The 2 skewed rabbet planes I hope to use for cleaning up tenons.

    The Chisels will receive new handles & sharpening.

    The marking gage is interesting @ $4 I couldn't past it up. It had a pin style marker at on time but now has a knife style cutter/marker on it. What I thought was interesting is the locking devise is a tapered dowel through the head. I plan to make a few of these & though it was a great pattern/user. I was pleased to find a nice try square as well as two spoke shaves.
    I also got a nice Stanley screw driver as well as a #80 scraper & a Lufkin folding rule.

    It seems to pay to save a few dollars over the year when you know your going to make an annual pilgrimage to somewhere you know there will be a few tools to purchase.

    Before you do that, try sharpening it up and using it as the smoother it was intended to be. You may find that you want to keep it as a smoother. A well tuned 'transitional' can be a joy to use. I've got a couple #35's that are high up on my list of favorites.

    Stu,
    Not any more! When I did live in Southern California, all those planes were kept on low shelves, and stored horizontally, not near vertical as you see them now.

    Fortunately, NE Ohio isn't prone to earthquakes.
