I am to that point in my shop where I need to clear out old tools to make room for new better ones. For some time I have been neglecting this task because I possess the typical pack-rat gene that is inherent in most of us. The idea of a yard sale was appealing but I just have not gotten around to it, and my unused tools sat taking up space and collecting dust.
Then when I was speaking to a coworker, I found out her young son likes to carve with his Swiss army knife but has not gotten any further along in the journey. I thought what a great way to give him a nudge. This is a kit I am going to give him tomorrow.
I helped him out and sharpened this for him, but I am going to make him tune up the plane himself, it’s dirty grimy work and I thing he’ll love it.
I’ll post a picture if I convince him to make something.
