Went flea market and antique shopping today. and surprising my wife bought nothing and I came home withfour items.

How did I do?

The modern plane is marked “Fulton 22” and looks to be in decent shape. $15.

The old wooden plane looks like it had a rough life. It has a surprisingly sharp blade! $15.

I couldn’t turn down the Skill saw clock. It actually ran after I untangled the hands. 1/2 price, 6$.

Marking gauge.. either a poor attempt or a decorative item. #10 (too much)

“Just a thought”
Because I like to work with logs for outdoor furniture, etc. I have converted a few old wooden bodied planes into SPAR planes.
