    furniture and cabinetmaking

    Agreed, MikeR, and it is a valuable resource p'raps for hand toolies. I was just so taken aback by $165 for.....a shirt?

    furniture and cabinetmaking

    "HOW MUCH?" for a look-a-like Schwartz shirt????? Those prices are not just insane, they're hyperbolically insane.

    A new Beaver from across the pond

    Shame. I wonder if the side entrance is now completely stuffed too?

    A new Beaver from across the pond

    Give (Lower) Cove cave a wave for me next time you pass it. Crackin' half hour's nonsense on the way to the top of Lamaghan. Or, better still, the boiler plates ascending from Wee Binnion to the crags of Binnion proper, finishing with that shoughy chinney over-looking Ben Crom.

    Shoulder plane.

    Wot Argus sed. There is a little extra "wheeze" perpetrated by The Venerable Charlesworth, about setting the blade a gnat's todger clear of the body to effect clean cutting. Been a while since I had occasion to read it, will look it up for you after work today.

    Shoulder plane.

    STOP!! That is a Preston plane. E.P. = Edward (I think) Preston. Collectors (haugh, tho!!) just lurve "patina" - rust and grubbiness to you and me. As she stands, this excellent lil' number is about £90-120. A LIGHT pass over with a soft brass brush to get rid of the dustier rust, followed by a...
