john880 Ah Ha, a kindred soul, some one that no drought has walked in my shoes,,,,,,Ah it must be spring when you here that beckoning call from your love one saying," Hey why don't we go garage sailing ", as those newly found golden treasures that you caried home with such care, & siting there looking for something to be taken down, before they can take their rightfully place. In this vogue of whats cool now days called, ~~~Recycling.

Do you all have a good find winding willow stick, a crystal ball the glows, a jenny in a bottle, does you vehicle wheel start to head towards the curb and a other wise hidden glowing LED sign apears on the dash, "stop here", pay in to secret a pre screening subscriber survice,,has this little voice whispering saying , "To day is the day" ?????

john880 Hi James
Now (!!) that explains it,,,"the traditional Tools Group",,,. I was picturing you driving down some suburban road stopping at some quaint little house, that has this sign ( how ever they word it there, here its a garage sale, an estate sale or just a sale period) and there sits these planes. Calling you to the door saying ," Here take me home."

Hey Dan hello,
Sorry about your neighbor, death came to one of my neighbors to, a little bit ago,,

yelp,I would guess It is like almost finds, from gold doubloons to meteor segiments finds, you are standing there in the right place at the right time. This also would include,,,,,"The few guys that were interested made out like bandits!!!"

The sale was arranged by "the traditional Tools Group", so there was a range of reputable suppliers there. I will let you know when the next one is on later this year.....LOL

Nah, Harry.

Holiday is still on.

The tool sale was organised by the Traditional Tools Group, of which I am a member, so there was a good collection of old used tools (some junk as well).

I used some Christmas money - so no holiday money was spent.

The No6 Stanley plane was $A60 and the spoke shave $15.

But don't get me started on the video camera -----..

DaninVan John; my neighbour's husband recently passed away, and I helped her get the dble. car garage worth of tools and material organized and sold. Couldn't give most of it away.
Sure, as you said, a ton of old screwdriver type stuff, but also a lot of brand new stuff, some still in the box. The few guys that were interested made out like bandits!!!
She had a 100' 12/3/1 neoprene extension cord with aftermarket plug and cap. There was a bad spot a couple of feet from one end so she threw it out...yes, I rescued it: I may be senile but I'm not crazy.

OPG3 James, those are really nice! I tried recovery a while back and just didn't have the will power to pass on quality tools. Just do it in moderation, and never operate an automobile or heavy equipment while under the influence of nice hand tools - it's a recipe for disaster...
