I was at an estate auction this morning, where some woodworking tools
were sold. Planes were going for $20 and less, a set of 6 rip/cross-cut
saws for $45, etc.

which sold for $190. I don't remember much about it, other than it

widened to at least twice (3x?) the diameter of it base, and was
flattened on top, rather than a spherical shape. It was not close to
Anyone know what it could have been?
