Stanley #66 Hand Beader - 4 replies

Here is another freshly restored tool. It is a vintage type 7, (1893 – 1899) #66 beading tool. It works much like a small scraper (similar to the #80) but uses a small beaded blade instead of a flat scraper. The fence allows you to reference off the edge of your work. Originally, this tool would have come with two fences, the straight one ...

I’ve never seen one like this, and I’m trying to figure out if it was made by Disston like this, or whether it was a user modification of long ago. This...
