Went to the auction today. There were 2 planes and a workmate in 1 lot.
Picked up a tattered No. 3 and a decent No. 8. Also got the workmate and a
Craftsman 315-25070 router. (Is this router decent? It looks to be older and
has the handle trigger. Plastic micro adjuster on the side. If so it would
still serve as #3 on my depth chart. How about a for a permanent router in a
table?) Total Cost: 35.00
Next saw a #3 and a 9 1/2 in another box. When the auctioneer got to it he
threw in another box next to it. Gat it for 45.00. Aside from the
aforementioned planes, I dug and discovered treasures. 2 T-Bevel squares in
great shape, 3 stick rules, brand new Exacto knives, Stanley plumb bob. 2 try
squares, nice old Strait line chalk box, 3 old school brass doorknobs in boxes
w/ keys. 2 boxed glass doorknobs. Stanley combo square and last but not least
3 50 ft Lufkin tapes. Not bad for 80.00 huh???
