Pat Leach's Blood and Gore is great. Supertool.com. Also Pat is a great guy
offering tools at fair prices. You can buy from him ( I have many times) and
expect a tool that is exactly as described. I am not a collector, well I am nut
of user planes and tools and have over 150 old tools including planes (wooden
and metal), braces, bits, saws, chisels, marking gages, etc.
FYI, a I am a contractor and usemy hand tools all the time. By the time another
gut gets out his router and templates and sets up a door for hinges, I am done
with the mortises (literally). These old tools when used and set up correctly
Also, a bunch of links on hand planes and some on old tools. Organize them as
you see fit.
Enjoy your adventures in old tool land It is full of many great people offering
help and advice,
