Found this at an estate sale. It was being run by a company consisting of all women. They had it priced at $8.50. I jumped on it!!! The rod seen in front closes the opening if you don't like an open throat. Not shown is the edge guide. Also picked up a Bailey #5. For $4.50. No masks involved.
It was too cold in the shop yesterday and my 7 year old daughter was "SO BORED" in the house that I suggested a trip to the local antique mall to hang out for a bit. To my surprise, she agreed, so we went and did a little rust hunting. Although I cant say that we found much in the form of complete tools, it was a fun afternoon for her and I plus we did come home with a few useful and unexpected items. I was only in for 14 bucks for the whole day and 25 cents for gumballs. Our treasures included 2 router plane cutters that will fit nicely in my Stanley 71 which had none when I bought it, a few irons for the Stanley 45, a medallion for a Simonds saw, a full leather hide to be used for whatever projects may come, and an old WS badged with split nuts. The saw is a bit of a bummer as it was shortened to just the far edge of the etch. I really bought it because I certainly have use for the split nuts and handle if I choose not to clean up what is left. The etch is visible enough to make out Brown Cast Steel number 3 and the keystone emblem leading me to believe it is a Disston built saw.
