So I was headed to pick up this from a winning bid on ebay (only bid actually)
which is powered by this
Which is a 115/220 3 hp motor that seem like it is the size of my truck bed.
While I was picking it up I was offered this (and I’ve been looking for one so this was a nice addition)
I plan to fix up and use these 2, so any information that you may think is helpful would be appreciated.
And I brought this home, just because I thought it was cool. I have no idea what to do with it.
So what would you do with an antique shaper table?
Stopped by a flea market along the way. Discovered this.
Now I don’t usually buy them already restored, but the price was right and I’ve been looking for a #65 for a while. I don’t care for the lacquer used for the jappaning, but I know how to fix that.
And then this.
I walked away from this once, its probably a type 17,18 19ish #3. I’ve got a half a dozen #3s now I can’t get rid of, but there was something nagging me. I was pretty sure I could see a heart through the rust. And I know the SW line came out long after the cap iron screw hole was moved to the bottom.
So here is the question! What is this blade that was in this Stanley later type #3? I know its not original, but would like to know what it is from. It has the numbers “140” stamped on the back.
I wound up paying $10 with a #18 with a badly broken sole, but all other part intact. I needed the eccentric lever. (see picture below)
And last but not least, I’m figuring you guys will agree this is worth $2.
All in all, not a bad saturday.
