Four days in Regina Saskatchewan, and this was all I could scrape up. Granted, the Easter holiday didn’t make it easier, but I was able to coordinate the calendar with various websites of the antiques stores I know there.
A #70 scraper, and #27 1/2 Stanley plane. I really like the 27 1/2, and it’s good when the correct cutter and chipper are there.
A Mint Stanley Defiance #1221 eggbeater with box. A Miller Falls #15 chuck and arbor, still in the box. Presumably Craftsman set of bits, was made in W Germany, with cute original wooden box.
Waiting on my doorstep, a Stanley #46 with extra parts, but no cutters. I’ll find some!
Not pictured, but I bought an enormous amount of wood screws in those blister packages at Habitat Regina from the 25 Cent clearance table!!! Wow.. even lotsa brass screws, some sizes I don’t have. Quite a score on these fasteners.
Also, there’s no Lowe’s in my neck of the woods, but in the Regina store I found some great deals on Nicholson rasps and Stanley Surform stuff I can’t seen to find locally.
Lots of good things still to be had out there! It does comes come to market in dribs and drabs, but it is truly the best way to build your vintage tool collection.
