Believe it or not, this is not a spam. I just came across a few odd,
fascinating, and/or unusual tools on eBay while I was browsing, and I
thought I'd share them with y'all, who might also appreciate
interesting tools. (As you can see, they're all from different
sellers, and I'm not affiliated with any of them - just interested in
First is a beautiful hand-made wood plane, #220077962558
I've never seen one like this - mostly I think it's visually appealing
and unusual, but it also looks pretty comfortable to use. If I were
more of a carver, I might attempt to make one just because I like it.
Second item is a Stanley #1 plane, #270087778634
I've heard these were sought-after collectors items, but $729 with 4+
hours to go? Sheesh. I do appreciate antique tools for their
inherent value as old tools, and this old number 1 is in great shape.
But for my money, that'd be a pretty nice selection of LN or Veritas
or Knight planes, or even a Grizzly 8" jointer.
Third is maybe the strangest IMO - a drill with a full circular-saw
Maybe this isn't that unusual to some of you, but it strikes me as a
tool that represents a very different era of tool-buying or tool-
manufacturing priorities. Seems like the push now is for more tools
that are more specialized, not for ways to make your existing tools
useful for other purposes. Also seems like a drill motor would NOT do
a very good job of running a circular saw, and it seems like the shape
and weight balance of this contraption would make it hard to use. Oh,
Hope these are interesting to someone else,
