I just want to share what happened today at the Long Beach Antiques flea market on L.A.
We woke up early to try to get the best deals on what I was looking for…. Bench Planes
It was about 5:30 on the morning and we were waiting for the doors to open. I about 3 hrs we walked thru all the market about 5 ~ 6 times and I brought back home just some little gems..
Stanley No 45 complete (some rust) with 28 cutters for $35
So for less than $150 I got 9 great hand tools, I really think I can’t beat that again, I was planning on driving over 200 miles today to try my luck and see if I could get a No 2, but I’m glad that I didn’t, there will be plenty of chances later to get my hands on a No 2.
I just feel like I need it to share with someone, the day is almost over and I still can believe I got a No 7 for $10…......
