Over the past few months I’ve accumulated a large number of quality edge tools.

I sorted through my stock and picked out all of the tools I consider to be good workers. There are some good, quality edge tools here at reasonable prices. I setup a special Edge Tool Sale page with lots of large, detailed pictures. I hope you find something you like.

More Old Tools For Sale Today

Good Afternoon,

I added about 40 new tools to my For Sale list today. This update includes some nice dado planes in good working order, some saws, wooden bench planes, and a couple of matched pairs of hollow and round molding planes. Finding matched pairs of H&Rs has become increasingly difficult lately. These are the first pairs I have been able to offer for sale in several months.

Good Afternoon,

I added about 40 new tools to my For Sale list today. This update includes some nice dado planes in good working order, some saws, wooden bench planes, and a couple of matched pairs of hollow and round molding planes. Finding matched pairs of H&Rs has become increasingly difficult lately. These are the first pairs I have been able to offer for sale in several months. There are also a couple of nice usable bow saws and the usual interesting misc. stuff.

I also added several nice long incannell gouges- these are also called coping or paring gouges. They are beveled on the inside of the curve unlike carving gouges which are beveled on the outside. Instead of a scooping action like a carving tool, incannel gouges are used much like a paring chisel. They are incredibly useful for coping profiled mitre joints, specialized carving tasks, and other tasks. Good vintage incannell gouges aren’t terribly common and there aren’t many modern edge tool makers producing them today.. The ones I’ve listed are quite nice- mostly British and all with long blades and boxwood handles.

Other news-

I received my copy of Chris Schwarz’s new book The Anarchists’ Tool Chest last Friday. I have read through the first five chapters so far and think it is excellent. I think it is a great reference book for folks interested in getting started with hand tools. I receive a couple of emails every month from folks asking for the best way to get started with hand tools- I’m glad to have this as a reference to point them to. I was happily surprised to find my site listed as a source and to read Chris’s recommendation. I want to extend my welcome to the new subscribers I’ve gained over the past few weeks who found my site through Chris’ book. I appreciate your interest and look forward to your business.

One last thing- I received a note from  fellow handsaw junkie Mark Kuzee the other day. Mark found a Harvey Peace P-35 handsaw and contacted me through my site. This is the first example of this saw I’ve seen and it’s really special. Mark was nice enough to let me use some pictures of his saw on my Harvey Peace Site. If you come across any interesting Peace saws please contact me. I’m always interested to learn about new saws.

As always, if you have any questions, comments, or want to purchase a tool, please contact me.

Added 50+ New Old Tools For Sale Today

Hello Woodworkers!

I added more than 50 new items to my For Sale list today. Today’s additions includes a lot of good measuring and layout tools, lots of user chisels, some saws, braces and bit sets, molding planes, and the usual fun stuff. Any items left-over from last month have been reduced in price. As always, if you want to purchase anything, or have any questions or comments please contact me.

The proper way of holding the moulding and similar planes is shown in fig. 76. The back of the stock is grasped near the top by the right hand, the thumb being towards the workman, and all the fingers on the opposite side of the tool. The front end of the plane is kept well down on the work by the left thumb which is placed on the upper side of the stock. The forefinger, which is bent at the second joint, is pressed against the side of the stock to keep the fence in contact with the work ; but the remaining fingers are closed in the palm of the hand. The plane must be lifted off the work at the termination of the strokes, as the iron will lose its keenness if drawn backwards over the work, besides subjecting the sole to useless wear.

Over the past week or so I have received a number of emails from folks who just read Christopher Schwarz’s new book, “The Anarchist’s Tool Chest” . Lots of people want the tools Chris recommends in this book. I look forward to receiving my copy (an early Father’s Day present from my wife) which I hope will arrive in today’s mail. It should be a good read.
