with a little luck….with a little luck…..and some help from my sister, handtools
.
.
.
.
.

I have over the year always talked about how great and fantastic possibillity it is for you to have acces to fleamarkets and other places where it is possible to buy good used beautyfull handtools
more or less rusty but with a little albowe grease and knowledge is going to bee great users again
I have envy you alot when I have seen your toolgloats witch has cost mee many green bulbs and keybords becourse of the droooling
and sometimes I have even been say I have a little gloat underway lately people have told me not to hide them anymore
and its ain´t fair to talk about them with out showing them
.
.
.
.
.
last time I showed you some pictures from the last gloat that I have been lucky enoff to be able to buy :-)
thrugh this DBA newspaper /netsite (little like craiglist I presume )
just as a teaser , in the thought I wuold be able to bragg after the weekend with new pictures
.
.
here is the teasers again
.

.

.

.
.
.
to get the tools I had to ask my dear sister to drive a few hours each way and trust her geting everything as advertised …...yah right you know how things go when you send someone with out any knowledge of tools and even less about woodworking tools , nothing to blaime her she did and out standing job driving forth and back geting the tools and pay the man …..explanation later to come just have a little
patience when I punish and torture the English language …LOL
.
.
the agreement with my sister was to drop the tools at my mother who had said they
cuold stay there until I visit her ….....time unnown at that time …but a great excuse to do
it before Chrismas ….yaah right
with the job I have November and December is overloaded with overtime work 90 -100 hours a week were more the normal than the 50 hours last year :-(
but then My mother wanted to see my daughter and exchange Chrismas gifts so it was scheduled to be the first weekend in December …he he ..yuubii the tools wuold arive by them self …..no no
thursday started a big bliz and snowstorm &%#%& and here I have promissed
L J a gloat Hmmf .. no tools that weekend so we scheduled a new visit the weekend before Chrismas …..yah right
another big blitz started thursday ….so no fammely visit before Chrismas and no tools :-(
.
.
in the autumn my daughter was told she had rheumatism/arthritis of some kind but they cuoldn´t tell what kind but it was that , that have done so her jaw in one of the side was different from the other and a surgery was needed in the future and there for the hospital send us to a spealist dentist
who shuold deside what ,when and where, it was in århus near my mothers place ….yep tool in sight
just let me finish this first , I was realy down in the autumn over the sickness my daughter have at an age of ten, but fortunaly the dentist deside she shuold to go with a braceless first to force the bones in the jaw to grow longer
and wait until she was older so the surgery is prosponed a few years for now …well enoff of that lets get back to the tools
Silke and I overnighted at my mother place , and there I discovered that what I feared from when my mother told me she cuoldn´t get the framed planes of …....@&%¤# they were glued on
but for once I had a little luck since I remembered my trusty old Jiigsaw so those I cuoldn´t wack of with a gently wack was sawn out from the sheed
there was so many tools that it did take me a few hours to pack half off them down to bring home
the sack waighted crazy 46 kg nearly 100 pounds and I had to drag them via bus , train and ferry beside thrugh the half of Århus
the week after we was in Århus again where she got the finished braceless and I got the rest of the tools with me home ….....in the meen time I had worked in the basement with Citric acid to remove rust
from some of the other gloat´s …..........and they call vacation relaxing time …LOL
.
and now you can finely see them here on the floor in my tiny something…...with good will and streched picture cuold call a shop

Poorman? You the plane richest man I know! lol You are coming up with more planes and wood working tools than any one on LJ. lol On those Yankee screwdrivers, they appear to be different sizes or models. Can you give me the model numbers?
The glue should clean up with a bit of elbow grease. I bet you have the old Vikings turning in their graves with joy that their tools have found a loving new home. lol If you aren’t careful, this tool rehab blog is going to be the longest one on LJ. lol I’m as excited for you as if those were in my shop. Enjoy, Rand

Some really well used tools to restore and make a new home for. I know you’ll do a fine job. I found some citric acid powder last weekend and am preparing to do some tool cleaning as you have demonstrated. I was trying to imagine and figure out what was going on dentally with your daughter, Silke and the arthritic condition she has. Hopefully the orthodontic tratment will help.

Dennis I got four dollars and seventy five cents, wana talk. We can haggle forth and back on the pick of the litter. ;) jk.
On an important note my wife says she can pm you some websites for your daughter. Our daughter has JRA and lupus. On a tool note wow. Did I say WOW! I am so loving what I am seeing. The widows tooth (router plane) is my favorite. You have what looks like a whole bunch of fun in store for you. Is the small square one a scraper or a toothing plain. It looks interesting also.
When do you sleep. With that kind of work schedule.
Great gloat. Cant wait for more….
I’m building a tiger maple box for my flee-market finds to sleep in.

SaSmith and Kenn :
:-) thank´s yes those ships ain´t what they have been, it did take a little longer
than expected , but you know what they say great things takes the time it need not a second less or more
but carrying them home in the train was nearly too much I cuold barely hold my self back from telling
every one who listen what a treassure I was hauling home ….LOL but there was one man that thought
my sack shuold have a bigger push to the side with his foot …..he don´t like me now …..LOL

Rand:
thank´s but the riches in planes as I know of at the moment most deffently be CanadienChip I think
he has a few thousend or more …LOL
yes the yankyes has diffrent size´s the one at the right side of the picture I have some truoble with
wont stay in at the moment but I´m pretty sure it will solve it self along the way more or less when
I get it thrugh the maschinery :-) ...but when I come to them I will ask for help to take them apart
and clean them up , tommorrow I will tjeck the seriel nr and modell nr if I can find them :-)

let them turn once more and I will consider to use them as an acient lathe … LOL

the longest on L J waauuw me having a record :—)) ain´t bad yah I knew when I started my serie
it wuold bee a very long journey tedius for a lot of the time doing things in bunck its like working
in a factory :-) at the moment
but in the other end I just have a feeling
there is a big beautyfull silent song waiting for me every time a plane is picked up and used
on wood sshhhuiisss——sshhhuiiss…..with a little bit of luck…..sshhhuiisss….LOL

as far as I have seen the glue cuold be a white indoors glue and is based on wather and that type
of glue ain´t wather resistend so with some wather and handscrabers made of japanese spartles
I think I can get pretty close with out damaging the wood on them

and the squares well I think I have to change the blade , think they are too rusty … thats another blog

sorry for my rant but you just started me on a topic I love to talk about …. LOL

take care
Dennis

Now we have a symbiotic relationship…You love to talk and we love to listen. lol You know that this is leading up to you building a replica of the old Viking tool box that was dug up and you led me to the web site.

I have two of the Yankee screwdrivers, the large one and the medium one. They don’t make the bits for them any more, but I have adapters for the hex bits. And a little light oil will more than likely free them up like new with out a complete disassembling.

Enjoy, Rand

Ken : with the Citric acid Just a note very old thick rust that has made small holes in the iron
you can reach a point where there is some black stuff in the holes and like a black wild landscape
on top of the iron ….that is not dirt/dung or what ever you call it …it is actuly rust the Citric doesn´t
seem to be able of geting thrugh and remove there most still bee some oil or something that
connect with the rust and making it exstremly hard but I have hear a little bird sing that evaprorust
shuold be able to do it but I don´t know still a job I have to try out :-)
and thanks for your concern for my daughter , what I have been told if I remember correct
then is one side of the jaw simply smaller than the other both in length and thickness
it was the local braceless dentist that discovered it from the pictures when the normal dentist
thought she shuold have correctet some teeth and she said it cuold be this arthritis something what ever
they call it …...I´m just glad she is under obsevation and has to go several times a year to different
speciallist evn though it ain´t cheap to travel with her fortunaly its free hospital in this country

Superdav :
thank´s but no haggling here at the moment :-) and what is sleep my dictonary don´t know the word
thank´s for your consern too its preciated
it is a toothing plane and its not seen that often here in Denmark on the market
with the freekvens it hit the market you proppebly wuold call it a rare plane :-)
I think so with the little one in the mittle I think to be used for hinges in doors to set them flush
with the wood instead of a router not sure yet

but what is more importen is I start to beleave that hollow sideescapement planes don´t excist
in this country as I remember sofare I havn´t seen one among all the round I have …..werd
since the normely is sold in pairs
can´t wait to see a tigermarble toolbox for planes , remember to build it big enoff to future tools
you can see they have it to overflood like rats/lemmings …..LOL

take care

Sleep is when do you rest or go to bed? You are working 50 to 100 hours , cleaning tools, blogging and taking care of that wonderful little girl. You have to be resting sometime.

You appear to have all three sizes of the Yankees. I was offering two adapters for the large and middle one. I have extra. And if you ever need them, McFeely’s.com has a load of them. I would up with extras due to an error in ordering. I would like to see someone get use of them. Keep an eye out for Pegasus of the Pony Express. lol

That is quite a gloat my friend. Well done.

Sorry to hear of discord in your daughter’s health. These kinds of things are always troubling to read about.

Enjoy reviving the tools, but get some rest too.
