In proper LJ traddition I’ve got a small gloat.
First a score from CraigsList, I finaly got a scroll saw. I’ve been looking for a few months.
It is a heavy son of a gun. The motor runs nice and quiet, it needs a little cleaning and I need to wire in a switch.
I received some tools from my wife’s grandfather’s house as I was helping my Father-in-law clean out his things. No one else in the family wants them. I got some woodworking tools a craftsman plane, some off brand chisels, a marking gauge:
a sliding bevel gauge, shown next to a modern one:
A Brown & Sharpe combination square:
and the big brother 18” with protractor and center finder
there is a bunch more tools in the box, several calipers and dividers.
