A friend of mine was in earlier and saw the poster, so he E Mailed me the picture :-)
We went together this morning, and arrived early as the store opened at 0900.
It did not took long before a crowd started amassing at the door of the sale room.
Besides planes of all descriptions, they roughly had 800 for sale starting at $10 ea, they had a large selection of braces starting at $5 and some handsaws.
Prices were marked in chalk on all planes
They had a large selection of moulding planes of all sort.
And braces too.
Sorry for the poor pic quality but you get the idea.
A a few bucket of handsaws.
You could even get to play with them.
All in all it was a fun shopping trip.
My loot back home.
I was a good boy, I could have easily over spend my tool budget, but I made list of specific tools I was after and stuck to my list. Now there is a first for everything isn't it ? :-)
They even thrown in a free shopping bag and two posters of tool porn, bonus!
So what did I got you ask...
3 match sets of Hollow & Round molding plane. $20 each, very reasonable...
They are stamped: No 2 (small size), No 6 (middle ones) and No 16 (larger ones)
They are Harlequin match set, meaning not from the same manufacturer.
They had similar complete half set for sale, but I was only after specific sizes, I do not need 2 or 3 of the same sizes thank you.
I could easily spent more time in there and buy a few more, but, as I said, I was a good boy, and stuck to my list :-)
Oh, and I while I was at the store, picked up a small pair of embroidery scissor for my wife for her sewing stuff. Yes, I'm a good boy :-)
Bob, with more tools to restore, research and sharpen.
Yes I got room in my plane tills :-)
