Been hitting a few auctions lately, not that i need to add to my tools.
This was just too much of a good thing to pass up, and prices that almost make me weep.

Most of this pile is the result of one tool i wanted being part of a larger lot, and getting the works.

I am still unpacking, and think i will be for a while.
the hard part is, once i choose my “good loot” that i will put into service in my shop. i need to find homes for the remainder. Wonderful problem to have i guess

Very nice instant collection. Can you tell us a range of what you gave for the group? If you’d rather not say, I understand.

i won’t give a total for the lot, but to give an example, i got the saws you see in these pics , plus about 12 more frame/coping saw for 17dollars cdn total. so cheap beyond reason.
planes and other stuff not so much, but still a fraction of ebay prices

Lots of restoration in the future? Not really the tools required by a Inside Passage Grad? What year were you there?

lol, yeah, i still use my wooden planes, these were just too nice to pass on. was at IP in 2009/10.
the spokeshaves are all users for me, And the drills add to a collection/addiction

this is the tip of the iceberg, i have a shameful amount of drills, not just these , but early chrome electric drills and drill presses from the deco era

those are nice, Hopefully you’ll get to use them all. That’s as fun as collecting.

One does “need” to have this many tools,

One full set at the house
one at work,
One for installation and job site work,
extras in each set, in case I have someone helping me

and those I just liked the way they look
these just need some help, they will be fine when I’m done

and no , I’m not hording

-- nice recovery, They should pay extra for that mistake, Eric E.
