I have found a mother load of tools. Come see. There is one more video on my blog. Check it out if you wish.http://chiselandforge.com/Let me know if you see some thing and know what it is.
Hello everyone.Just to tell you that I am still alive. I have been reading most of my buddies’ posts but did not have time to comment or post anything myself. The reason I have been quiet is that I have resigned from my work and I am in the process of moving to another town to start a new job. I had therefore to dismantle my workshop in order to sell my home more easily. It will probably be another 6 or 9 months before I can have a proper house of my own with a real worksho...
With an area of 1000sf, a 10’ ceiling and 2 large garage doors my shop is difficult to heat. In fact I didn’t even try. Until now. Okay, does this count as a tool? I dunno, but I bet there’s a few out there with cold shops like mine. So here I go trying my hand at being a stone mason because to meet code in a garage you have to have any open flame at least 18” off the floor. I had this stove installed by someone who knows what he’s doing. Needless ...
I’ve always believed in the adage, “into each life some sun must shine.” And so it was recently as I visited two estate sales. As I was checking out Craig’s List on Thursday night, I came across two sales that had potential. One had actual pictures of tools (two of which I now own…plus a bunch more) while the other had a description that led me to believe it would be a worthy stop. And it was. Here’s my haul from the first place: There were three tables...
I was visiting family in Phoenix and decided to try my luck at finding vintage tools before our 5:00 o’clock gin and tonic. The foraging turned out to be much more fruitful than my East coast tool hunt last year. Flea Market FindsFlea markets, like baseball, have been very, very good to me in the past. After Googling flea markets, I found the Phoenix Park ‘n Swap at 3801 E. Washington Street. So Mom and I piled in the car and cruised on over. The place was massive with hundreds of...

I was poking around Craig’s List when a garage sale caught my eye. The pictures were a woodworker’s dream. They featured lots, and I mean LOTS of hand tools. So I finished up my work and headed over there late Friday afternoon. All the better to root out the best pickings. The people running the sale were friendly and the place was loaded with tools as advertised. Apparently the gentleman’s father had recently passed away after a long career as a carpenter. I started m...
A friend asked me to keep an eye open for a small lathe, I found an old 10” Delta Lathe for $70, but itcame with a lot of junk, I had to take it all. On the lathe bench were these old chisels. The biggest measures 21” long by 2” wide and is stamped L & IJ WHITE 1837 Buffalo, NYthe middle one measures 16-1/2” long by 1-1/2” wide and the tang is stamped Mfd by UNION HARDWARETORRINGTON CONN USAThe smallest is 13-3/8” X 13/16” with no name ...
Today I stopped into an antique store that I’ve driven by several times. I looked around they had some tools (plane a couple levels and a couple squares), but nothing that matched the cash on hand or was worth the price. I was almost out the door, but took a last look in a display case. In it I spotted this little gem A Stanley, stamped H101P on the side. So a happy day for me
Super jazzed, been searching for a bench top drill press and 14” bandsaw, and the local market had nothing, and every time I called on craigslist it was beat out by someone before me… But not today! I picked up a Delta 16 1/2” floor drill press, mortise attachment and a 14” Band saw with 2 blades and a delta mobile shop stand for the band saw all for $200… and they all work great!
