« Part 13: Antique shoping and a new toolbox build.. Part 14 of what i've been doing series Part 15: Christmas 2011 - tools, tool box, and gifts... »

Well the day started with me going to work and the wife was going Christmas shopping. A text came over my phone my battery is dead. So I took off work and the day started. Now as we were shopping I was bidding on eBay. I won this nice little plane.

I go that little jewel for $25.00. It has an half inch blade and the depth stop looks to be there.
Now after lunch we went to sears. And seeing that Smitty has a galoot index going. I have been in need for some wood handled chisels. I want some 19th century period ones but have been unable to locate a nice set. That would still be in my budget. So the need produced these.

Sorry fuzzy shot. But they got wooden handles. I will probably have to flatten them for a few long hours. But they are mine.
Now while we were near my favorite hard wood dealer. ( the only one within 250 miles) My wife let me stop in and do a little shopping. I need something special for a small tool-chest I am building. All I needed was some drawer front material. Each front is about 3 by 14. this is what I came home with;)

3 sticks of birds eye maple.

2 sticks of zebra wood

a piece of jatoba

a pack of cherry cutoffs

and there is some gum somewhere in there.
It wasn’t much but it will face my drawers with something nice.
I have had a good day. The wife ordered me some dmt disks for the worksharp. Might wait on those before I do the chisels.
And I have been working on this post for 2 dang hours. They have got to get the servers fixed. See ya ;)

And thx for letting me go first.

Nothing like ebay and Craigslist snipers. Nice find. You really should shoot me a text when you’re heading over to that hardwood dealer. You know I’m just a hop, skip, and jump away. BTW I’m itching to post this project I’ve been working on, once I have it up and running. It’s an improved version of the bead tumbler posted on here a while back…. That reminds me, William and Superdave, I may have a use yet for all of those tiny offcuts that we all seem to gather…...

Cutoffs? Oh, I have cutoffs. You are right SuperD. I do burn my everyday cutoffs. I can’t burn the pretty stuff though. For example, under one of my benches is four, five gallon buckets of small mahogany pieces. I burn the real tiny stuff. These buckets are full of stuff that might one day be used though. I do grab a small piece here and there, so I want to keep some. KTMM is welcome to about three and a half buckets of it though. Actually, I’ve tried giving it away for so long that I didn’t think I’d ever find someone with a use for them. So when do you want them KTMM?
Somewhere around the shop I have more too that is scrap, but too pretty to burn. I have some cedar, walnut, and some kind of wood I haven’t identified, but it is pretty and hard as a rock. That rock hard stuff would probably be some of the best for beads.
I’m jealous hat both of you have been to the hardwood supplier in Jackson. I’ve never been. I always find myself in the situation where if I payed for the gas to get there I wouldn’t be able to buy anything. I keep saying I want to just go look. I know if I go though I’m going to find something I just can’t live without (wink, wink) and wind up in the doghouse with the missus for dipping into funds that are supposed to go somewhere else.

Update. Stanley 71 is here.

Not in to bad of shape. Bottom has almost no pitting.

All the parts are there.

And the face of t is in fair condition for $19.00.


Now the restoration should begin. I have learned a little about my 71. Its a type 6 1902-1905.
And the best part was the front shoe. I could not figure out the use for the tapered end. Thanks to blood a gore its a depth stop.
“At the same time the shoe was added, a round depth gauge rod was made part of the shoe clamping assembly. This rod controls the tool’s depth of cut as the cutter is adjusted deeper. It permits consistency from cut to cut, which would be difficult to achieve were the rod not provided. The rod has a smaller diameter portion on one end. The use of the stop might not be intuitive to most, but it’s very easy to use and rather clever in its simple operation. The rod is slipped through the round opening for it, atop the arched portion of the main casting, so that the smaller diameter is downward. The tshoe is then slipped onto the rod (over the large diameter) so that the shoe is above the arched portion of the main casting. The rod is then positioned to the desired depth (relative to the sole of the main casting) and the screw of the shoe is tightened onto the rod. The rod is left free to move up/down through the arched portion of the main casting – do not tighten the screw to lock it in place. As the cuts are made, the rod will slip down toward the casting until the shoe stops it from moving downward anymore. Once the shoe makes contact with the arched portion of the main casting, the desired depth has been reached.”
I cant wait to give it a go.
