Not much of a workshop at the moment. We are renting a house while we build our new place is being built. As you can see I like older hand tools, mainly planes. My preferences is for American Stanleys and English infills. Highlights of my collection are an early number 4c; a 607c; a type 3 numer 6; an early number 2; a 112 scaper plane (which needs a blade); two Norris A5 smoothers; a Norris A1 panel plane; a Spiers parallel smoother in need of some work; a Record 073 shoulder plane; a 605 and a Lie Nielsen 604. Most are in good condition and just need a sharpen and tune.
I also have a few needing a reasonable amount of input to get up to speed including a Stanley 10 rebate plane, a Stanley 5 1/2 and a suspected early Norris parallel smoother which has had the infill replaced with what looks like stained pine and looks very cheap and nasty. I also have an early number 7 which unfortunately has gone through a restoration and needs a de-restoration (if that is possible!!).
I subscribe to Fine Woodworking and have a few books – Garrett Hack’s books are a great source of info as are Lon Scheinling’s Workbench book.
