When I started this gig, I almost asked the lead analyst when she was due. Glad I didn’t cause she’s not pregnant, just got a beer belly.

I have not done a damn thing today except correct other people’s mistakes. Great way to head into the weekend.

Like my assembly bench, er, totes?
My bench is only 4ft long due to space limits in the garage. This console thingy is 90” long. Seemed to do the trick.

The totes cost about $6 at the Walmart though… I’m sure Stumpy could build some out of particle board that he got for free. heheh

Hey fellas,

Still alive here in the great white north.
Been getting up to go at 3:00am.
They’re trying to stress us to see who can’t handle it.
I told them I was read this thread regularly, and they gave up on stressing me.
Gotta go on 5:00 am ride alongs tomorrow and Sunday.
Tests on Monday.
Not a hand tool in sight.
Two weeks to go.
Lost four of five guys already this week.
Headed for my pillow.

I told ya.
But I dont want new I want this

The History
At one time, the powers that be in the upper echelons of The Sandusky Tool Company created an exhibition-class center-wheel plow plane. The plane was intended for show only and may have been part of the Sandusky display at the 1876 Centennial Exposition. The plane no doubt made a few trips to various shows and expositions but resided at the Sandusky offices until the company was disbanded.

In 1934, the father of the consignor of this tool enjoyed an experience many of us have dreamed of—he went to the factory and bought the best plow plane ever made by them at a tag sale and then came out of the building and showed his new possession to his four-year-old son. He told his son that he had just bought the contents of the whole building to get the plane. The plane has remained in the same family since.

The Plane
The plane consists of an ebony body with the improved beveled handle, ebony fence, ivory arms, bushings, bridle, fence wear plate, wedge, and decorative buttons. The metal skate, center wheel, and arm-attachment nuts, as well as the blade, are all nickel-plated. Of course, being a presentation plane, it has never been used and consequently is in original condition showing slight nickel loss on the skate and blade. When obtained from the Feick home in Florida, the plane was dirty and the nickel was tarnished. The dirt and tarnish has been professionally removed and the plane today retains its original finish and luster.

Anyway, this beauty went up for auction this morning at the Sheraton Inn, Harrisburg, where it was expected to go for something in the range of $40,000 to $60,000 US Dollars, according to the auctioneers. There was much anticipation amongst tool collectors around the world, but nowhere was the buzz greater than on the auction floor when “the plane” in Lot 308 came up for bids. I was excited as a kid in a candy store!

“Jay Ziegler of Hershey who called the auction said the bidding on the tool opened at $64,000. It quickly rose to $90,000 between phone bidders, which brought a silence in the hotel’s ballroom. When the bids from the phoners rose to $100,000 and $102,000, respectively, the crowd applauded, Ziegler said.

When the phone bidding ended, Ziegler scanned the audience for potential bidders. At $104,000, a hand went up from the floor. The crowd roared. The winning bidder is a collector in Pennsylvania. The final price with a 10 percent buyer’s premium was $114,000.”

At those numbers, the 10% buyer’s premium to the auction house ($10,400) amounts to more than most antique tools go for!

1 awaiting birth
Several frozen in their cellars
One with toothache, one lost his marbles, and Eddie is helping him look for them plus his own, one roaming the planes, Ted having plastic surgery.

Had a little time at the shop yesterday Randy, just finding stuff and putting like things in the same place. Hope to get there again today to continue. Not exiting work, but something which is going to help.

I tried the Festool sander, and you know (no jesting), it’s a pretty neat little tool. It’s very light, easy to reload and can get into some really awkward places to sand. All joking aside, it’s a great little tool.

Predictions?
Well, tomorrow will be Sunday with variable weather over the US.

If I can get this shop refurb and sort out done, I’ll be in good shape to start again making things. The difficulty is that, apart from the shop being abandoned for 4 years and everyone using it as a dump, I have to refit to suit my medical circumstances, which takes planning and time. Got it all worked out and now I have to implement it – that’s where I am.

Back home after another night of plastic making. Drive home was “Verrrrry InTer Esting”. 1/4 pedal left on the brakes, ice at every intersection, stop lights changing to red just as i got to them ( 4 out of 6) could make a donut right in front of the house, but the curb stopped that. Mountain dew, a nap, and MAYBE a little wood work. In a 65 basement wood shop. I could start to clothes dryer, and get it up to…..70. 4 hour block of woodworking shows this afternoon, on pbs.

Good Morning gentlemen,

Coffee has been consumed and I am actually going to the shop today. I started a fire this morning and it was 22 in the shop. I had to leave the door open and vacate the shop because I think one of the feral cats that live in the other part of the barn got stuck inside. There was all kinds of stuff knocked off some of the shelves where a cat might jump when trying to escape.

I also found that some of the wax on my tools failed to protect against surface rust from the condensation that happened when it all warmed up. I am now in the cleaning the iron surfaces and rewaxing everything. Even the stove had some rust spots.

I also found some water damaged drywall in the ceiling that I am going to try and replace this weekend.
