So for some reason my wife and I we’re in the mood for antique shops this weekend. Went to a few places, not much going on, did find a #4 for $85. As i was telling my wife how high the price was i almost dropped it as apparently it was missing the bolt for the handle. DOH!
Anyways first up is a #6. Good shape, i think it will clean up nicely. Not sure exactly why i bought it, seemed like an ok price. $35. Can’t hurt to have a back up.
Next up is a cool stanley #3. Great shape i’d say. No cracked/broken handles/knobs. Good jappaning. Still has some of the original tote decal. Pretty neat. Sweetheart blade.
Next is the Bedrock 603. Great shape as well, good knob and tote, jappaning is okay. This also has a sweetheart blade.
Both #3’s have holes drilled in front of the knob for hanging. Can’t see why someone would do that, but thats why i got a “deal” on them, not sure how i made out. But the guy gave me both for $100. I see #3 bedrocks going for over $150 on ebay so who knows.
Anyone can tell me some info that’d be good.
