Took bloody forever it took upon itself to scan and fixed all my drives attach to that PC, that's about 2 Tb of storage, yes lots of tools pics :-)
Oh yeah, I'm so excited...
Its like watching a submarine race... ZZZZ
That was in between publishing part 1 and 2 of the illustrated type study lists. Still have some small gripes about the updates but for the most part, seems OK, the new Microsoft Edge, which replaced Explorer, looks a lot like Google Chrome...hummm
So figured may as well leave it alone to do its thing and go play with Rudy :-)
I'm playing with my monkey Dad
Listen, do you hear that sound ??
Yah, i'm pretty sure its that Chipmunk
Well, what are we waiting for??
I know he is out there, I heard him...
I see him, lets go Dad!
I know he was there...
I can smell him...
Wait til I put my paws on you
You can run but you cant hide
Sniff sniff come out and play...
You yellow bastard, I'll bite your leg off
In between chasing Chipmunks, we took a quick drive to my usual Sunday flea market scene, you never know what will show up :-)
Came across this Roadster, had to stop and take a gander...
Love the shifter pattern :-)
I don't think it is a very practical vehicle to drive but it sure looks cool
The scene Sunday morning at the Wilmot flea market
It is a scorcher of a day
That is the vendor table where I found my
MF No 12 and No 2 and brace etc...
That Stanley Jack plane is a Type 19 BTW, which means the yellow notch rectangle Stanley is period correct
Lots of tools here and there but my picking is getting slim,
hum wonder who is snatching all the good ones :-)
Picked up a draw knife $5 and a rusty Irwin bit for $0.50
That draw knife will required two new handles. A few minutes job at the lathe.
Earlier went back to my chocolate place in Annapolis Royal and lo and behold found more tools :-)
See, it IS a Chocolate place :-)
Says so on the sign above the door.
Heh look what they got. That place too is
getting picked clean...somehow :-)
Says Bob with a mouthful of chocolate
Some how this Greenfield Tool Co screw arm plough
with 7 cutters followed me home.
No chocolate survived the trip back home, I guess I'll have to go back again...
I'll give him some time to replenish his stock, I made a big dent in his supplies :-)
And then surprise, this package came in the mail the other day, from Patrick Leach...
It is a Mathieson, Glascow, classic Scotch brace.
It was MS53 in his July tool list... Mine :-)
Pic from Pat's July 16 tool list
I better stop buying tools this month and start cleaning and restoring then put them to the test :-)
Bob, who has no doubt overspent his monthly quotas...
That's the problem when no one is around to reason with you... :-(
