Once again, the handsawgeek went a-rust hunting this past weekend, and found another item to check off of the hand tool ‘acquisition list’ – a draw knife. This one was manufactured by P.S. & W. Co., and is in excellent shape. The blade has no nicks or rust to speak of, and the handles are intact and firmly attached. A good sharpening , and this baby is ready to (learn how to) use.
Of, course, this means I am naturally compelled to add a shave horse to the list of pending shop projects.
I also came away with an old, but never-used triangle file. Good thing because there are more hand saws hanging in the shop waiting to be sharpened.
The last item is a nice razor saw that has seen little or no use. These are a good thing to have if one makes a lot of projects out of small parts. A good razor saw is the go-to tool for precision cutting small diameter dowels and thin wood pieces – perfect for the toy-maker in all of us!
All of this was procured with the miniscule sum of 20 bucks. The purveyor of yard-sale goods even threw in a small canvas tote holding a random assortment of hardware – for free.
Since a great deal of recent shop time has been spent in doing major sorting and organizing of the handsawgeek hardware system, I really needed more hardware like Custer needed more…well, you know the story.
What the Heck. Free is free.
