Well, of course it’s raining, it’s Saturday! So while the throngs of people head for the malls, I had a near-fainting experience at the truck accessory store. A cheep fiberglass cap for my new Z-71 Silverado? How about $1675 plus tax and installation!!! Cripes, I might as well have bought a Yukon or Suburban…. So to console myself, off to the Flea Market we went, where I purchased these gems:
I’ve been hungerin’ for transitionals larger than a #29, and I scored a couple, though I am not sure of the maker(s) First, perhaps a Sargent (?) 24” X 3” with low knob, 2 1/4” cutter. Second, stamped “31” on the end, also 24” X 3”, Union, maybe? Both lateral levers have a 90-degree twist, but in opposite directions to each other. Third, an unmarked 15” transitional, Cutter is stamped “Hunt Mfg Co”... never heard of ‘em!
Last but not least, the cutest little “Rapier” #11 made in England, 110-size, still with traces of decal. I love Rapier planes, especially #400s, I prefer them to any #4 Stanley I own. So.. that’s my score, can anybody help me out with ID’ing these guys? Thx in advance!
