Slim pickens here in the winter wonderland!
Then, at another, I nearly walked right on by this orphan, sitting on a 50% off table:
But wait… what’s with the patent dates?
Yep, a Stanley base, Type 11, with 3 patent dates, and corrugated!!
with the wrong frog, Record lever cap, and late Stanley cutter, maybe from a Handyman!! WOW! And.. $10 too!
Hey, I’m not totally sure if the frog is right or not, but somebody went to a WHOLE lot of trouble to detail the paint on the sole and frog to precisely applied to only the un-machined surfaces!
So… the house is quiet this afternoon, I’m going to curl up with some coffee, slippers, and PTAMPIA vol #1 and #2 and determine whether that boy is indeed a Siegley, and possibly discover why anybody would put a Hunter Green finish on a Stanley T-11. (The photos don’t show the color correctly)
Oh, and among the planes left behind was an “Este” #3 $45!!!! (I already got one), a Record #6 with the worst toe-brazing ever $27, and a few Transitionals that look like they were munched on by the Abdominal Snowman. Good Day, All!
