Well it finally happened one of those days we all hope for happened to me. I got up early today and took the dogs for a ride to keep from waking the wife too early. Driving down the road I saw a sign for a garage sale that said tools. I was expecting the usual lawn and garden Varity but always hope to find the odd ball chisel and sometimes a plane. After looking around that was all I saw. Then I noticed a cabinet at the back of the garage that had an old Stanley plane sticking out of it. I ask the owner if it was for sale and he said that he would only sell everything that was in there or none at al. It had been in his family a long time and he didn’t want to break it up. He told me what he wanted for it and opened the doors. You can imagine how hard it was not to get to excited as I still wanted to negotiate. Well letting my wife sleep in didn’t work to well as I called her and got her out of bed. My wonderful wife in her half sleep said if I really thought I wanted it to go ahead.
