I am going to be attending The Great Lakes Boatbuilding School this fall and am in need of a few tools to fill out my kit. I am needing a #4 smooth plane, good quality that I don’t have to restore, brand not as important as condition. I need a 10” brace, would like a three jaw chuck but don’t know if that is to be had in an older brace, Stanley or yankee. Or, about the brace, does anyone know of a good quality modern rendition of this tool with a 3 jaw chuck? I need at least one 3/4” paring chisel, prefer a cranked neck one, may consider a set if the price is right, again ready to go. For some reason the instructor specifies waterstones, which I know, almost everyone likes, but I don’t have them, I always use eze lap diamond plates but he says waterstones, so if anyone has some they want to sell that are good quality and flat I’ll need them too. Say 1000 and 4000 or something like that.
Some tools I already have, some I’ll buy new, others like the plane and chisels I’d like to pick up used so if you have any of these let me know about them.
Almost forgot, I’d like to have a real nice 1 1/4” and 1 1/2” chisel and a 2” chisel, prefer a socket type.
