so this is a fortnights worth of car booty, this last sunday it was pissing it down but i went on regardless and got abit wet but got some nice bits. later that day the sun come out and it was bloody hot!

firstly a lovely sorby london pattern boxwood handle sadly abit short




some other chisels there both abit naff but i just love boxwood and for 30p i thought it was worth it. i believe the stone is slate looks unused to me? :duno:


something to sharpen my chisels :lol: contemplated buying this all summer, each week his price would change so i finally got him down to a quid and bought it. gave it abit of a clean up and looked inside and the gear work is amazing instead of just being a plane old gear there is elegant spokes, lovely what stone should i replace it with just for general knife sharpening?


this great long sanding thingy with loads of brand new sand paper it can also be hooked up to the extraction


some lovely bits of leather useful for all sorts of things, 1 piece now resides with jim




a slide rule (thanks BB)


to big burls not quite sure what wood they are but there from California i believe. thought they could be turned or sliced up.


some useful bits, dowels, biscuits, millers dowels, tack's, nails, screws




any ideas?


10p a piece couldn't resist


enjoy

Adiat,

do you use the miller dowels. I found them to be good, but they dont seem to have a wide following.

The octagon pattern handles are my favourites...along with the straight octagons on older chisels. That handle will find a new steel friend one day when you can marry them up.

I did just that with the Matheison gouge I found with no handle...it's far happier now!

I simply lurve those burrs Chris...what have you planned for them? I can't gauge how big they are...so can't suggest a use yet...
