    Triton TWSS-10 whetstone & Tormek TT-50

    Bought a triton whetstone at a very good price, hardly used, so my first purchase was a truing tool. Looked at options and Tormek tt-50 was the best design, post 2019 model, (let us try to forget the tt-50 cost nearly as much as the Triton…lol). So bought it (Rothco & Frost best price I could...

    Hand saw Spear & Jackson Mermaid No.23

    Merry Christmas all. I have been going through all my saw literature and can not find any catalogue with this one in. Any one have anything? I estimate 1900-1915ish, (from nib, handle style and nuts) if you have anything which positively dates it, that would be great.
