    I was out shooting pictures last night

    Here is just a few. Help I need a hand tool case.

    I think I must of caught some kind of bug.

    I figure if I build a saw or plane till its plane it will only be big enough till I bring home another plane or saw.....

    Thanks,

    That's quita a collection, Bart. I'm betting there are some old guys somewhere out there smiling with the knowledge that their old tools are still used and appreciated.

    Nice looking plow plane...among many I may add, but that one really caught my eye. I saw one in an antique shop and the guy wanted 55 dollars for it and it had a broken blade.I thought that was steep and passed on it. Maybe it was worth it, maybe not, but I left his shop empty-handed.

    Nice collection. Seems like you have a lot of stuff from the mid-30's to more modern times. Definitely a lot of 1950's era stuff. As I said, nice, nice collection.
    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!"

    If all the other main parts on the plane were there & in good shape it was worth it. You can always keep your eyes open & buy blades.

    Yeah I figured that, but I thought 55 bucks for a broken plane was a bit high. If it was35 or so I might have gone for it.

    Another shop by me, Liberty Tool, has a nice shop of old tools, but the guy really knows his stuff. You are going to get a fair price I suppose, but don't plan on walking out of there with a collectible Stanley #140 lets say, and pay 10 bucks for it. He knows what he has and what it is worth.
