Rust Hunting in Georgia 2012.06.09

This final tools post should get me caught up for a while. This is a set of tools I found at a local estate sale - all very reasonably priced. The highlights are the Henry Taylor gouge and the Stanley 2246 Miter Box (it joins my Millers Falls)...


There are these three el cheapo gents saws:


An interesting small hammer and canvas stretcher


And a close-up of the chisel:


Along with a few other items - the radius cutter makes the second I've found at sales....


The reamer is a nice-to-have but the staple remover to the right isn't something you see very often - that's a new tool for me...


This is a much better veneer cutter than the one I found last year...


And you can't have too many auto-body dollies...


Finally, here's the miter and saw...


A bit of flash-rust on the 27" Warranted Superior saw with beech handle. Looks like it was stored near ammonia or other out-gassing solvent...


The miter is in good shape and mostly complete...



Anyway, that catches me up.

Good luck in the hunt! John
