Thought I’d share a couple pics of this week’s best find.

Oh, I do have to put the tote back on. The guy took it off so it didn’t get damaged in the crate.

That is nice Dave! I have a LN version and let me tell you, you will LOVE that plane! After using a hybrid Record T-5 (really just a #5 with a side handle mounted) for so long, moving to a real shoot board plane was really nice. Makes shooting so easy and takes a lot of the effort out of it. Great find, have fun with it.

Wow. Great find. Especially if you did not have to give away your first born.

Thanks!! As some of you know, I visit the occasional garage/estate sale. While I was waiting for one sale to open a few weeks ago, I got talking with a couple of other guys who were also waiting. Basically, we were all just trying to make sure we weren’t competing with each other and when I told them I was looking for woodworking tools, one guy said “Oh, you should come over to my house. I have a bunch of woodworking tools.” I did and saw this. While I won’t say exactly what the price was, I will say it was closer to 4 figures than I’ve ever spent before on a single tool. One thing that is really interesting is that a buddy of mine spoke to Martin J. Donnelly about it and its worth more than I thought because of the box. Mr. Donnelly is going to stop and give me an estimate of what he thinks it will bring at one of his auctions.

Yeah, you pretty much suck. No other way to say it.

Dave, I showed your story and #52 pictures to my wife in an attempt to convey why I want to stop at garage and yard sales all the time. It’s the chance, however remote, of finding something as amazingly cool as that boxed Shoot plane. Oh, and thank you for correcting the nomenclature. I’ve always seen it as a Chute Board (even on B&G, for example) vs. Shoot Board. Primary source data is a very good thing!
