All my life, through out most of my careers, my philosophy has been one of a generalist. Sort of a Jack of all trades, master of none. I like the variety and it suits m taste. My collection of hand planes carries that same eclectic foot print.
When I’m out looking for vintage tools, I’m just looking for planes. I love finding a new treasure, sometime weeks and months after its been brought home and I discover what I have.
So here is the start to my Siegley collection. It’ll start small, and grow by chance more than direction, as most of my collections started out as.
This is a Siegley #5. Probably a type 12. Made around 1900-1901
