The set of bits are taken… I’ve emailed the person who got them. It was the first one. Also, the stacked dado is spoken for.
Well, in cleaning the shop I’ve got stuff to get rid of. It’s good stuff too. I just don’t see myself using any of it. It’s free (minus shipping, see below). Send me a personal message if interested.

First is a set of Bits. They’re not new but actually hardly used. A toolbox fell off a truck years ago. I put an add in the paper after I scraped it up off the road. No one ever claimed them. This set of bits was in the box. I don’t use a brace or bits that they fit into. they look literally unused and are sharp. The set is complete and there are 13 of them. I see that on ebay they are a coveted brand and a bit old, and sell for about $80 used… Your cost? I’ll trust you to send me a check for shipping when you get them. I’ll be sending them in one of those post office, “if it fits it ships” boxes. I don’t know the cost, maybe $7 to $15? All I ask is that if you want them it’s not just because you’re a collector. It would be because you’re a hand tool user and have a good reason for these. I’d like to see them actually used. If you want to pay whatever the shipping cost (up to you) is I can also throw in this random bunch of bits below. The one on the top of the pile is a cool adjustable one. Can’t imagine what something like that goes for.




I’ve also got these two dado’s. One is a wobble one, set the dial and it takes a wide swath, and the other is a complete kit with metal and paper inserts. I’ve never used them but they are used by previous family members and still sharp. Not used much I’d imagine. I prefer a router. Dados kind of spook me anyway. Big chunk of metal spinning fast in a table saw. Cost is honor system shipping like above.

So, no tricks here just like to find a good home. May take me a couple of days to get it out as I’ve got to pick up the box, Bring it home, then drive into town to ship it. I’ll also be waiting to do packing and shipping all at once.

If anyone feels the need to trade and wants these happens to have a decent #6 screw countersink similar to the one below, well I’d take it. Mine just broke. I’ll have to pick up another. I use it constantly. Otherwise no problem. It’s not a condition or even an expectation.

Just wanted to say that’s so cool that you are doing this.

Certainly hope it goes to a user not a collector too.Tools were meant to be used, not colelcted.
