Next up is the wooden planes, they are in nice shape, they just need some TLC.

This is a nice screwdriver,with storage in the handle.

Mesuring and layout tools.

Boring tools, drill bits.

Chisels, axe and mallet.

Hand saws.

Great collection of vintage tools, I wonder the history behind them? What kind of furniture they made? If they could just talk…. sorry I wander for a second…

Wonderful vintage collection. Judging by the tools, looks like there was work done right from the tree to the cabinet. Would have been very interesting to watch him work. Too bad camcorders were not around in that day and age.

It’s coming slowly, i don’t want to rush myself and destroyed those tools plus i’ve got 2 young kids(6 months and 2½ years old) so between my day job and the family i’ve got little time for the shop.

Keep looking i will post pics of a dovetail saw and a Stanley No.5
