Here is a boxed set of Sorby-Kangaroo woodturning tools, I dont think they have ever been sharpened and if ever used no more than once or twice, there was a little surface rust on them when I received them but no pitting, more “Stains” than anything. I have not cleaned them up and left them “as found”.

I would like to trade the set for a Stanley Bedrock #603 or a #608 in good condition (User).

Failing this “Trade” offer I am open to a regular #8 Stanley with perhaps a little “Boot”.

Thanksl for looking

If you don’t find a trade offer, give me a cash price.

OK Dan,

Will do. I was just rearranging some storage this weekend and this box was buried down deep under an old bench of mine. I had forgotten all about them and it just did not seem right for such great old tools to be put away and forgotten again. I typically only use a little mini-lathe and don’t have use for a “Regular” sized set such as these. They are nice ones for sure, still sharp after all these years!

Rats, all I have is an old “1950’s” Stanley Bailey No. 6, 18”, wood handle, non-corregated and a Stanley C559B, 14”, also non-corregated. Both are in great shape. Would you be interested in either of these?
