The wife and I took out now yearly trip to the Madison-Bouckville Antique show week end. As always we had a good time and found a few treasures. I won’t show the wife’s treasures, as you don’t care, but you may see some come up in future projects. But here is my fun filled weekends tally.

From left to right (sort of)
A Prelateral Stanley #5
Type 3 or 4 Sargent 409
Stanley #3 with a broken cap

Prelateral #409 Sargent with early bailey iron (see added story) excellent shape. #9 1/2 for parts
2 #5 Stanley fixer uppers
A Stanley #80, needs a new blade.
2 45s with boxes (will be for sale)
Stanley #220 like new
Sargent #3422
Stanley #129
Stanley #27 1/2 needs tote.
Ohio tools #29
Gage 18” transitional (need to research it)
Gage #6
Type 3 Sargent #409
Stanley #4 type 8 or 9
Geo Burnham Jr, Amherst Ma, matched 5/8” t&g set
Ohio tools matched t&g set 5/8” set
Siegley #6, needs knob #6 broke and welded, for parts #3 for parts #4 broke and rusted but nice rosewood tote for parts

Right side back
Wood jack. Just thought it was cool
Fence for #78
Stanley #23
Goodall #3 or 4 size with different iron adjuster
4 saws $1 each
1 saw different staggered sharpening and metal studs and plate.
Tool box $8 include several nice files and handles and an early Sargent 409 iron

So the tool box with the leather strap handle has a story. I was fishing through it and came across an old 2” sargent iron. I thought, I may need that some day, so I asked the guy what he wanted for it. He said $5. I said I was thinking more like $3. No go so I headed back to throw the iron back in the box when he said, I’ll give you the whole box for $8. Sold. The box has at least 10 nice file handles, a broken distton but brass nuts, files and other goodies.

The next day don’t I pick up a prelateral 409 with a Bailey iron. The above iron is the correct one.

This was cheap and just cool, and sharp!!

Cool saw. $4. I just couldn’t leave it.

That’s all the pictures I had time for.

What a haul, Don!! Sometimes it’s almost a curse to have a handplane addiction, man they get so heavy when you’re carrying them around. Hope you had a Radio Flyer with you to tote your swag around! Last time I shopped an antique show, I had my Lee Valley green shopping bag which I filled with heavy iron, wouldn’t you know the thing ripped apart. Congrats, Don! I know you’d never let logistics get in the way of a good haul!

Oh my goodness. You are going to clean out the entire east coast. Those represent a life times worth of finds for me.

That’s going to be a lot of restoration work. I’m jealous, though. Enjoy your new toys!

That many rusties would probably clean out the whole state of Kansas. I envy your hunting grounds.

LOL Mark …. im waiting to hear this answer from Don. I think we should actually hold a raffle for the correct answer. kinda like how many M&M’s are in the jar.

My vote: 94 currently in stock. Does not include those that have been sold, donated, or given away.
