Fence and depth stop for Stanley 78 rabbet plane, which was missing these parts when I bought it for $5. Depth stop is held vertically using captive brass rod to slide in the plane’s groove. Shaped wooden fence works well, looks good, and has got to be more comfortable to hold than the original metal design.
Marking gauge – spalted maple and mahogany, with a rod of unknown species. Pin ground from 1/8” drill bit.
Birdcage awl – ground from 3/6” steel key stock, hammered into a simple oak handle. It’s a little cockeyed so it looks silly, but doesn’t affect functionality. Cheap and easy to sharpen.
