A store in Huntsville OH. Stopped in the town for some cheap gas for the van ($2.18/gal.) and decided to check the place out, again A #6 plane on a shelf.....unknown name. $25. Meh...pass for now A #5 wannabe with a "Master Mechanic" decal on the lever cap? $25? Pass A #5 Craftsman, with a keyhole saw handle on the rear deck? $15? Pass A Trans. plane, unkown # because someone had sawn off both ends right at the point the upper iron works start....$25? Not a chance 2 broken Shelton block planes and a #110 wannabe...didn't even bother to lok for a price. Yep, that bad.
Well, it is getting close to that date. Time to lighten the tool box at work, to make it easier to cart out when I do retire. Two items came home this time. A 12oz ball peanhammer i never used. Red headed, LONG handled, might be a Plumb, or a Buckeye brand. Then there was a hacksaw. Black plastic pistol grip. Someone had painted the metal parts a silver colour. At least it didn't rust, that way. Thought I would clean it up, to see what this thing really was And a close up of the handle. Looks like there was a place for a label? Fired up the drill press with the wire
Seems i have a collection of sorts. If one gets a might dull, I can just grab another. Group shot? Only three, and there is one in a drawer at work, too. First up Wards Master Quality. Note the fancy handle? Some sort of amber coloured plastic. Next Great Neck No. 50. Even has GREAT NECK cast into the hard rubber handle. Next... Union Mfg. Co. made hacksaw. note the fancy wood handle? Most of these were a $1 at yard sales over the years. The one in the work tool box? I THINK itis another Great Neck one, can't remember now....
