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)
Prelateral #409 Sargent with early bailey iron (see added story) excellent shape.
#9 1/2 for parts
Right side back
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.
