Spokeshaves

I started slowly this spring but hit the slippery slope this month and free fall today.

I found a couple bargains but most at fair market value, but nothing over $35

Today's pickups
An unmarked wooden scraper
An Unmarked wooden SS
A Grain 355 Protractor
An unmarked SS
A Stanley No. 55
An unmarked Saw Jointer

The set so far

The only other marked one are the Stanley No. 51 & 53

I have a few up coming projects to try them out, once I get them cleaned up and sharpened.

I know how you feel Kevin. When I was stocking my carving box I gather them all up. I kept thinking "where the heck did these all come from?"

Don, I think I'm better off not knowing how many till it's too late!

Kevin, sounds like there are more acquisitions in the pipeline?

Not the Bullseye of Rust Heaven, but one ring out.

It always helps if you once up on a time had a great dump to pick in the outer ring.
