Location: far north central WI
Website:

old enough to remember first hand stories about buying a bushel basket full of american moulding planes for $5. kind of a second tier collector and have acquired more than a couple of bushel baskets full of said items (would be willing to sell many of them too). own plenty of power tools both portable and stationary but prefer the feel of a well tuned stanley in my hand-same for handsaws, chisels, spokeshaves, vintage Starret measuring tools and the like. i never was employed in the woodworking field during my career but have maintained a professionally equipped shop for over a decade and in my retirement have in fact taken on woodworking commissions including furniture building, repair, sashwork and doorwork, large architectural turnings, cabinetry and most recently the restoration of a 12' totem pole. I own a substantial Delta power tool paper collection including original texts written by the man who launched Delta back in the 20's from his Milwaukee garage and copies of nearly every text,catalog, bulletin, project sheet and pamphlet they ever printed (also willing to part with that). I did have a brief encounter with professional woodworking equipment sales in the latter portion of my firefighting career in the city of MKE when I worked for a Woodcraft franchise and taught hand tool use in the store classroom. would love to own a stanley chute board and miter plane but just found a restorable bailey #6 that will work perfectly on a shopbuilt beech device. so it goes
