plane, bale hook, hand drill, gaugesI recently acquired a lot of old woodworking tools that I would like information on so that I am more knowledgeable about age,type of wood used to make, uses, value etc. You guys seem like a smart bunch with lots of experience, can anyone help?

See this link http://lumberjocks.com/GaryK/blog/8899
also you should be able to up load pictures when you first write your blog.

Tim, I am not as fast as you are. I had just downloaded the link to post here.

Sara, for posting to a project or workshop page you can download the pictures directly from your computer but for inserting a picture into a blog or forum topic you will need to follow the directions in the link that Tim provided.

Thanks Tim….I was trying to find that post.

Sara…while posting pics looks complicated…it really is not. But you will need a photo sharing site to be able to upload pics to your post. Photobucket is free and works well with Lumberjocks

Crap! I couldn’t get them to go on Photobucket, but how about Flick’r? I think I have that one set up already. Thanks you guys, I will figure it out eventually. I appreciate you all trying to help me!

Why can’t you just put in a pic from your browser? Why the jumping through flaming hoops?

I am pushing 50 and am self-taught on the computer. It’s hard to teach an old cougar new tricks, especially jumping thru flaming hoops! Haha I will give Flick’r a shot, anyone dying to see the tools I am talking about can see them in my online shop http://sarasexplodingcloset.etsy.com , skip the girly stuff and go to the right hand “sections” list and click on “Guy Stuff and Fishing”
You guys are awesome, I am really impressed how nice you all are (and funny too!)

I’m sorry to say this but the tools listed there are over priced except the hand plane.
The hand plane is a gem although it looks like the metal pieces are rusty. That’s a good decision not to clean the plane… people that intend to use the planes would clean it differently than a collector. You might want to either take the metal pieces out and photograph it or get some close ups of the metal pieces.

I actually have a vintage Bob’s Big Boy like the one shown (should I admit that?)

I definitely agree with cmaeda, although I’d say the plane might be priced a bit high as well. ebay seems to be what sets the bar for prices. You can adjust prices upward if you have a huge selection to choose from as a tool dealer and people know they can get what they want from you with little fuss. you can adjust your prices downward if you are trying to sell locally (flee markets/garage sales/non-ebay internet venues). If you really want to get an idea of the prices, I’d search those items on ebay.
