I visited a client today for a consult on some outdoor upper cabinet units she wants built. I had a nice visit on a beautiful property. We disused rough plans and dimensions and I will bring her to the lumber yard on monday to pick boards for the project.
On my exit she asked if I could use any of this, Her dad is a 90+ year old woodworker that left this stuff in her garage. She was going to throw it away. Of course I took everything in the box without even looking at it.
Brought it back home and these are the contents.
2 sears/craftsman planes, a coping saw with about 20 new blades. A metal vice, which I will use on my drill press, and soo much more.
Here’s the older sears plane.
It cleaned up pretty well and the iron sharpened up surprisingly well for a bottom of the barrel scrub.
For an initial free consult to my client I never thought I would walk away with anything for free but this was a welcomed treat for me today.
