As I have started in my journey to “tame the tree”, my quest for hand tools has started with a steal on ebay.

This barn fresh beauty was a breeze to get apart and in remarkably good condition.

After 2 days soaking in vinegar, the surface rust scrubbed right off. A few hours of flattening, sanding, dremmel wire brush work, and sharpening and she is back to work.
