Topic tags/keywords: swap tool swap hand tool

Jordan has set up a poll for the next swap and will be leading the swap. I thought I would post the info here so people not following the Handplane Swap post would be able to see it and vote. Voting is now closed. Final Results are below.

I voted too. Looks like there’s pretty equal enthusiasm for measuring/marking tools and grease pots.

What it’s a grease pot?
What I picture is a fixture that is used in auto repair that is a pair of cones with a grease zerk that fills wheel bearings with grease.
Can’t see that being useful in woodworking…

+ wasn’t a marking tool swap just before the plane swap?

Here is a post from Mads on Grease Pots. They are used to hold lubricant for planes, saws, etc.

I still like the idea of a bit brace. Kinda like this one by Derek Cohen:

Click for details

Lots of options for other designs too… but this won’t be the last swap so I will go with the general consensus.

Hmm, tempting, but I’ll have to skip this swap because this woodworker’s shop & project time will be put on hold until the end of hunting season.

How about a table saw swap? I’ll send you my craftsman table saw for one of your powermatics or something? Just kidding. I’ll be watching because if I make a measuring tool for any of you, the leaning tower of pisa will be the end result
