    There is a sucker born every minute and that's me. I was looking for a good axe in the 3 pound range and bought a hand plane. The plane was a rusty mess. I spent the afternoon lapping the bottom and sides on my granite block. I sanded the wood up a bit and cleaned, polished up the metal. It needed a good sharpening too. Not too bad for 25$ and an afternoon

    Nice find, I picked up a little machinist vise for a dollar and took a half hour to get it working again.

    I love it!!!

    Another passion of mine! Hand tool woodworking...

    I have many old and new hand tools for woodworking. For planes I have pre - WW2 (many much pre!) Stanley # 3, 4, 4.5, 5, 6 and 7, some in multiples, as well as router planes, rabbit planes, etc.. I have lots of wooden planes as well as 1/2 set of hollows and rounds, complex profiles etc.. I have a bunch of old saws from disston as well as English makers, chisels and tons of more stuff. I have far too many planes from new makers such as Lie Neilsen and Veritas as well as chisel sets from Blue Spruce and saws from Bad Axe Toolworks rasps from Auriou. The list goes on and on. It isn't just a collection for me... I use them regularly.

    Any other woodworking nerds?

    I would like to be a woodworking nerd but I'm lucky if I can get enough time to make knives.

    Yeah I hear you there. Since picking up knife making I haven't done much for woodworking either sadly. I love them both but knife making is giving me more these days. With my limited spare time I really like being able to create a project from beginning to end in a relative short period of time. Woodworking is super fun and creative but it realistically takes many more man a hours from beginning to end on a project. Either way though, just being out in my shop is my sanctuary!

    I don't know about time as much as its space for me. My shop is in my basement and I have too many tools in a small area. I shouldn't say my h about time I have been flat out for a long time

    That polished up well Brad!

    I was born with sawdust in my blood, almost literally. My Dad was a self-employed cabinet maker by trade. His handmade tool box still has all the old goodies from his apprenticeship. Assorted planes, old saws, even a brace & bit. The tools themselves are works or art. Don't make 'em like that anymore.
