Tools should be used. And when I have some that are doing more sitting than cutting, I give them to friends or sell them.
After 15 years at Popular Woodworking and purchasing tools for review, I still have more tools than I want. Today I’m getting rid of five of them. Here are the terms. Please read them before sending me a message.
The first to say, “I’ll take it,” gets it.
I only ship to addresses in the United States.
No, you cannot come to my house and dig through my basement.
After I receive your payment (PayPal or personal check), I’ll ship your item.
If you want an item, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and be sure to say which item you want.
So here’s what I’m selling:
Lie-Nielsen No. 4-1/2 in bronze anniversary edition. Made in 2006. Price: SOLD.
This plane is virtually unused. Sharpened once. Signed. And stamped with my mark. I’ll need to grind and sharpen it again for you before shipping it. I do not have the box or the papers – sorry collectors.
Lie-Nielsen No. 62 Low-angle jack plane. SOLD.
No apologies on this tool, other than the fact that it is stamped with my owner’s mark. The iron is O1 – I bought this before the A2 craze.
Gramercy Hammer, 9 oz. head. Price: SOLD.
It’s a great hammer. I just have too damn many hammers. No apologies, other than it has my owner’s stamp on it.
Gramercy Hammer, 4 oz., Price: SOLD
Again, too many hammers. This one is great for adjusting plane irons and driving sprigs.
