One of my favorite browsing places is the Eastbrook Flea market and Antique Mall. A couple of weeks ago we were perusing the basement. there is an interesting tool vendor that often has some great old things. I found this plane. I have a smooth plane, and have seen others, but this was interesting – and complete. So here is a picture:

I proceeded to disassemble it to see the condition and figure out what to do next. Here is the before slide show at Photobucket:

O.K., had another find, actually two. Nothing particularly rare or even wondrous, but at the same place where I found the KK5 I found a Sargent 217 block plane and a scribe. The scribe just looks old, but I like it. The 217, according to Sargent’s site, was made between 1910 and 1953, and had different combinations of finishes and knob material. If I’m interpreting right, this one is probably pre-WW II. But just how “pre-”, maybe someone here knows. Anyway, the KK5 (which is still in work – time’s not on my side) has a new little buddy who will be taking an Evaporust bath here shortly. Again, more to come. Pics on Photobucket.

Youre hooked now. Once that rust gets in your veins its all over with. Keep up the good work. That KK5 is a nice jack.
