I had a great opportunity today to buy some wood body moulding planes…. and a saw.

Here is the saw… I suspect that the medallion has been replaced with one from another saw, but as far as I can tell it is a D12 rip saw… the tooth line is dead straight. A little rust remover and this thing is ready for work.

Here is the rest of my haul..

Left to right….
3/4 rabbet, 1/4 groove, 1/8 bead, 1/2 bead, 3 different sash planes, #12 hollow/round, #10 hollow/round, #8 hollow/round. The first four I actually bought 2 years ago at a different sale, but still.

All the planes are in great shape and ready for work…. now I can get rid of the router table….

I am really excited about these planes and can’t wait until I can really get working with them.

Thanks for looking in.

Wow, What a nice haul . Every time I seem to find any around were I live they’re at antique stores and they always seem to want to much.

Ya… They seem to be very proud of moulding planes. This is indeed a nice haul. Ready to see a few pieces being worked!

Nice H&R pick up for sure. Tough to find pairs in the wild!
