« Part 7: Speedily Creeping Forward Part 8 of handsawgeek's Lathe Stand: A Hand Tool Build For a Tailed Appliance series Part 9: Thanksgiving Holiday Progress »

Instead of working on the lathe stand this past weekend, the handsaw geek went a-rust huntin’.

Several yard sales did not net very much of interest, as the ‘watch’ list for items is very narrow.

Paydirt was found at one sale, however, as the peddler-of-the wares had a table with some vintage tools displayed on it.

A veritable geek magnet.

Among a pile of old wood handle screwdrivers, files, and hammers, these items were found:

The plane is a Stanley #220 block, and the push driver is a Goodell-Pratt. 10 bucks for the pair.

Also scored were a couple of Disston D-8 rip saws that carried the ‘Warranted Superior’ medallion.

Not that the handsawgeek needs any more hand saws, but at a buck apiece, how can they be passed up?

Actually, a little work was accomplished on the lathe stand over the weekend: layout of the pedestal legs on the stock boards. More sawing and shaping to come….
