Hi, I’ve always wanted to go to a tool show. but they always end up 6 or 8 hours away, this one was @ 1 hour away and 15 minutes from my in-laws house ( so we stayed over night and my father in law went with me).
well; some pretty swell tools, I want this saw by Blackburn tools
and I want the shooting plane by Lie-Nielson which you can almost see at the left back of the bench in this shot;
some nice planes
and interesting wood at interesting prices
several other displays:
the fellow w/ the handsaws, reconditions saws. second chance saw works. firstname.lastname@example.org
I did expect more demonstrations, and I was surprised that the displayers/venders did not actually have stock on site to sell (you could place an order; the Lie-Nielson people were telling buyers that their order would go out by the end of the day)
but I enjoyed it withal and would go to another somewhere else sometime.
