« Part 5: Almost didn't measure up - Shocking Part 6 of Tool Picking series Part 7: One Heavy Shopmade Doweling Jig »

It has been a while since I have done any picking.

One of the local estate sale dealers has me on their preview list and lets me know when sales are coming. They usually have preview hours the day before the sale starts. This week’s sale is near my house, so I stopped on my why home from work.


Machinest Drill Vise


AMT Squirrel Tail Plane
Sargent Block Plane with brass knobs – Can someone tell me how to identify the plane number?
Stanley #151 Spokeshave


Starrett 50-A Trammel Points


Dowel Marking Pins
Divided Marking Guage
Strip cutter


Drill Bits


Razor Saw

I am a few bucks lighter, but all-in-all happy with my find. I may have to go back this weekend to see what else I can snag.

Thanks for looking. Happy (tool) hunting.

I definately have more tools than I need. Especially, if you consider how little shop time I am getting. I just hope I get to make something nice with these tools, before they end up in my estate sale. 8-)
