Topic tags/keywords: hand tools

I bought a few tools from a classifieds ad yesterday from a nice guy who was selling his dad’s old tools. I got a few saws, braces, bits, and chisels. He asked me what this was, and I know I should know what it is, but I could not for the life of me remember.

It’s a tool that is a combination scraper/moulding plane. You clamp a profile blade in the tool and then scrape the proflie into your wood, typically near the edge. With the long ones you can put more than one cutter in and do things like flutes or multi beading.

Huh, looks neat. Stamp a Veritas logo on it and you could pass it off for a $100 piece.
