So I have recently gotten into woodworking and after being given a book dealing with only working with hand tools I have become pretty infatuated and decided to start to do a lot of “hand tool only” projects. This coupled with a budget and my wife’s infatuation with everything antique and vintage we have started to hit the flea market/estate/yard/garage sale circuit. Today was my first awesome find. This guy was a woodworker and it showed with a shed full of tools. I ended up coming away with a Stanley No. 7 and No. 4 (The number 4 had a busted handle which was repaired fairly well. A Stanley No. 71 with one blade and a Henry Disston back saw (handle slightly cracked but still nice and sturdy) and last but not least a Millers Falls No. 5 Egg Beater drill with 2 bits in the handle. Most of them is great usable condition and now I get to test my sharpening skills! Hopefully more to come!
