Possible gloat here, but still sorting things out. Found these at a local Market Days in one of two boxes that the vender got from someone passing on their relatives WW stuff. It all appeared to be English (so those across the pond feel free to help me ID). What I did NOT pick up though in hind sight probably should have, was the one box with maybe two dozen old molding planes in an original leather cornered box. In the bottom of that box was an old newspaper dated 1959 (probably near the time of last use?) Oh well…
The main reason for acquiring them was a slight need for more chisels and from the looks of them, a challenge to turn some new handles… ;-) Spent $30 for the lot. Not sure if I overspent, as I am sure someone out there will tell how they got all this kind of stuff for free, etc. I didn’t even haggle with the guy. So how did I do?Working from the top:
