This is today’s little bag of treasures.
You might just make out the ticket prices. Double up for US dollar equivalents.
The Preston spokeshave was £5.00; brass inlaid square £1.00; Mortise guage £1.50; log splitting wedge £2.00. I didn’t insult him by making an offer, but he did discount me on the total!
The sad news is that, on the basis that I have too many planes already, I procrastinated over a Stanley five & half – the one with fluted base. Then, thinking that at £15.00, I could use it as a door stop <g>, I went back. Of course it had gone! Ho hum.
