May 25 auction
So who else was at the auction on Friday? Ed and I went, and we ran into Craig & Scott, and we saw a number of familiar dealers from the TOTT show.
Too bad the auctioneer didn't sell the tools in the morning, as I had to be home by noon. I did manage to pick up a small 2-man cross cut saw, a double bit axe head, and a sledge hammer.
I brought the axe head and the saw to our Scout camp on the weekend. Gave the saw a quick sharpening and set the kids to work cutting firewood. I pulled a good piece of white ash from the wood rack to make a handle for the axe. I got the head fitted, just needs shaping of the handle now. It will be a 3/4 axe, not full length. If it doesn't work I can always make another.
Anyone else pick up anything interesting?
OMG the shop is a mess, I gotta have a Galoot BBQ soon so I have a need to clean up!
