Today is Mothers day. To cellibrate, the family and I went to the monthly antique sale. and I thought I would document the day’s find. This antique sale is fairly large and makes for a good family outing. There is a little something for everyone. I did miss one item that made me wish I had been there a little earlier. It was a large, highly figured and very beautiful lignum vitae mallet. Such is life.
I was looking for router planes and also perhaps a scrub plane to add to the set. Hopefully a Stanley 271 or a #140 if I were to get lucky. The following is what I was able to find.
A #71 Stanley Router Plane, a Stanley #95 RH Edge Plane, a lignum vitae mallet and a small handle for taps or similar use.
Here are some more photos
The mallet is marked Hati on the end. I also found a nice set of trammel points that I did not take pictures of. Everyone in the family found some treasures as well. All in all not a bad day.
