Topic tags/keywords: resource blade plane carving tool tool antique refurbishing traditional gloat

This is a mish mash of stuff I won on eBay last week. It all arrived in the mail today. Kind of like Christmas in July.

eBay finds

Starting at the top and going clockwise

  • Very nice chamfer plane – has two owner marks – does not appear to have maker’s marks. I expect to put this back into use.
  • 4 1/2” brass dividers – Got this to go with a larger one I got a few weeks ago. There are Mads inspired plans for this tool
  • Sheffield Cabinetmaker’s screwdriver set – Think this set is modern. Would love to get an old set of boxwood handled drivers
  • Disston Compass Saw – Nice old saw, marked on the blade. This is planned for a future rehap and to became a working saw.
  • Old scribe. These normally have a point on one end and a cutter on the other end. Perhaps Brit has some further insight.
  • Old leather strop. I was going to put this back into use, but it is really a nice old item. The handle is really wonderful. This item is going to stay as is and I will make a strop.

Those are extremely nice, Wayne. Who is the maker?

On the dividers, they are not marked. Here is a photo of both pairs. The smaller ones are the ones that came today. I am working on getting a set of these together. I would like one more pair in between these two and a compass. I lost an auction on a matching compass a couple of days ago. : ^ (

Nice set of tools. I like the striking knife which has a very blacksmith-made touch.
You seem to be much luckier than me with ebay lately. I know I bid extremely low prices but I had kind of hoped that somehow in the long run I would win at least 1 auction…

I normally only bid inside the last minute of the auction. You win some and you lose some….

This one just went up above the maximum price I was intending to bid… So bad, I really fancied it.

The 62’s are real nice planes. They sometime go over $400 on the US ebay site. I belive a LN version sells for $265. Not exactly how that converts into euros.

Thanks Don, I have a thing for old screwdrivers….

I’m with you; I want a nice set of old boxwood drivers. The LN’s are nice but I just can’t get excited about them. Maybe I’ll buy a combo mill and make my own;)
