I’m planning a trip in Oct with the fam… Was playing around on CL to see whats up in that neck of the woods.

Well this is up… For sale

$580 in Rutherford NJ.

Supposedly from an estate sale of an elderly lady who had saved her grandfather’s tools.

It would be a shame to see the set broken apart. Seems like a reasonable asking price, and could likely be had cheaper.

In the market?

That’s quite a set of tools. You are right it would be a shame to see them split up.

If this group of tools is complete, I wonder what kind of work he did without traditional bench chisels.

Good point, Ray. I’d bet those were there at some point, as well as another saw or two, but haven’t made it this far with the rest of the group.

After all… Tenon needs mortise.
