« Part 17: Journey with me and Krenov. Part 18 of what i've been doing series Part 19: Krenov part two. »

I have been really blessed with help from fellow LJ’s on tool finds. I purchased a Tormek from KTMM, I love it. There is still a learning curve.


KTMM also has sold me a Stanley 95 TypeI

BoxcarMarty helped me get 2 old wonderful Ohio planes

I have been shopping at a few antique stores but couldn’t find anything worthy of bringing home. But I couldn’t come home empty handed.
found these

There were many piles of old tools but they were overpriced or in bad condition. I live to find piles of tools like this.

I have started two projects. A Krenov plane with a bit of a modification. I have a video on the first part of the build and will finish it with a second video.

The wife wants a small coffee table. So I had some walnut that has started this.

I am trying something new and will be streaming a feed from my shop. I placed it on my shop page.

And you cant forget Safety cat

I want to thank you guys for your help and friendship. New and old. I hope for the best to all of you.

Ha – gotta love safety cat! Cool tool finds – I still need to send some plane photos….sorry so late…

Love the new coffee table….........and that curly plane is looking good!

Can you fit all your tools on the new “tools” holder, or what? That’s a cool find!

Thanks Jeff. No problem on the pics. The last batch of tools has busted my mad money for a couple of weeks. I don’t want to push my luck with the better half.
Thanks for the comments on the projects.
The tool holder was found and needed. I never have a place in the shop to hang my coat or hat. They always find themselves hanging on a clamp handle.
Thanks Jeff…

Hi Dave…

Looks good as usual!

I have one of those old hand drills… I use it quite frequently… have a 1/16” bit in it… Still works GREAT!

Thank you very much Joe. I have the craftsman big brother to the drill. It was my grand fathers. I love it and use it often. It is missing the side knob. I may see if this one fits.

Great post Dave. I need to get out and hit the car boot sales this year to see what I can find.

Andy and Paul thanks guys. You never know what you will find. I have found the coolest stuff in junk stores. Paul I have to keep the shop closed. I am scared he will hurt himself.
Thanks guys.

I seen you beating on something earlier on your live stream. Does the Mrs. know that you’re smacking the daylights out of her new table? Just keeping an eye on you Dave…..

She knows and she was pearing in watching to. Every now and then I would look over and see someone online. I would pick up the piece and show it to the camera. It happened to be her one of those times. I went in side to eat and she asked me if I could see her;) You have to be aware of people watching you. You know I might have to scratch a certain area and not want it known that particular part of my body itches.

Hi Dave. More old tool finds, and interesting ones to boot. It looks like you and your shop assistant are keeping busy in the shop these days. The Krenov plane looks good. I hope you enjoy your new sharpening machine.

Thanks Mike, the cat will come in with dew on his paws, that doesn’t make me happy. I am scared he is going to cut himself.
You have my full attention with your ball build. Keep us up updated. And have you had your eye surgery? I hope all is well and warm.
