Over the weekend I got my Great Grandpa’s tool box. It has 2 wooden planes in it, and 4 saws. 2 of the saws were his, one of them was his dad’s and one was my grandpa’s.
One of the planes has “Boston Navy Yard Oct 1870” stamped into the side of it.
The other plane is a Scioto Works plane that from a quick search through the internet looks to have been made between 1893 and 1907.
More pictures and story can be found on my blog
