So I answered this craigslist ad that had some pics of hand chisels and such. The correspondence was a little formal and I figured it was walk in, hand over cash and walk out. Turns out the guy was quite nice and had some good stuff for sale. If I’m wrong in any descriptions below, please correct me. I’m posting these to hopefully get some feedback on the proper use of some of the ones I’m not so familiar with. That and I’m crowing a little bit.
First up is a set of Marples mortise chisels. I’ve been looking for a set and these just happened to come to me. See! If you send out positive energy the universe answers with positive energy. I just gave you the gist of the book “The Secret”. Along with that is rather large drawknife.
Next up are some hand carvers from Japan. Not so heavy duty but probably usable. Can someone fill me in on the ones to the left? I’m guessing either for turning or hand carving for bowls or other concave shapes. The long one without a handle is a Stanley (forget the number).
Here are a couple of corner chisels and I’m guessing a tenon (1/4”) chisel?
Up next is a complete set of Sorby light mortising chisels. I think technically they are called sash chisels. I’m considering them either heavy bench chisels or light mortsing. Am I in the ballpark?
These round tip chisels have no markings. Are these strictly for turning or?
Here’s a set of Japanese shaving chisels. I’m looking forward to using these at some point.
A couple of flat bottom spoke shaves and this teeny tiny plane with some extra blades.
Couple of marking gauges.
Not pictures is an egg beater hand drill and a egg beater shoulder drill. I also picked up a handful of pipe clamps, a large DMT diamond stone, handfull of Japanese water stones of various sizes and grits and a few other fixtures. It was a good day.
Like I said, if I’m wrong on anything, please let me know. My GF has been very supportive of my Craigslist addiction but I’ve done quite well.
Thanks for looking!
