Zagreb has a huge flea market in the wastelands on the edge of town out by the garbage mountain !
I love flea markets, and this one is one of the best. There is all sorts of new products, from clothes to tools and everything in between, along with a second hand car market plus a massive section of second hand goods. Literally everything can be found there. I get most of my router bits there (new) and I like to get old hand tools there also. There’s also many BBQ type food and drink establishments there. Most sundays I go there, browse and have barbecued meat and a beer for breakfast ! Hey, I’m just trying to fit in with the locals after all : )
I made a very rough video with my phone, which as it turns out, doesn’t like bright sunlight and it was an exceptionally bright spring morning (7.30 am). It’s unedited. Warning, seems I forgot to turn the camera off towards the end and filmed the ground a lot and also some peoples butts ! Tune out when you start feeling motion sickness.
I though I try to get across the enormity and variety of the place. Phone camera doesn’t do a good job of it.
Lot’s of picture too, showing some wares of interest for us lumberjocks and general tinkerers.
If you are ever in Zagreb, I’d be glad to take you out there. Lot’s of old wooden planes for the addicts among us.
Darn, need to upload the video, will add later.
Hmm, i was able to embed my last video but can only manage a link for this one. Oh well.
Beautiful old carriage.
Wooden jointer plane. I ended up buying one that turns out to be from the best producer in Austria from the early 1900’s. It cost me about US$10 ! I’ll blog separately about the tools I bought.
A cannon ! and some large saw blades and arbours and some kind of huge clamp/vice.
Some kind of deadly table saw contraption that has a motor with a larger diameter than the saw blade !!
I decided not to buy that.
More later after the video uploads.
2 frame saws in a wooden half barrel
shoulder plane old hand saw and some draw knives
still more to come
