the planes, the planes!

Stanley planes and a Sarget and a Millers Falls. If this guy was in the DFW area I’d jump on it, I think $200 for 9 planes in good condition is reasonable, but it’d probably cost another $50-100 to ship it here from San Fransico. I think there is a tool collectors meeting/sale coming up [Continue]

Apparently not in Arizona, in the near future anyway: “13-2320. Domestic terrorism; classification A. An individual or group of [Continue]
