Good for you!

Absolutely one of my favorite hand planes, I have one that I bought from Walt Quadratto, it's just a pleasure to use. When these are sharp, they're a pleasure to use. The low angle makes a huge difference on pine for me. The higher angle doesn't leave nearly as nice of a finish.

All of those tools are very useful and this is what rust hunting is all about. Even the folding ruler, I hate those things but would have bought it. LOL I haven't been out rust hunting in a long time...always hit/miss for me, one never knows...around me it's mostly estate sales run by these big conglomerates. They look on Ebay at the asking prices and ask the same. Occasionally they get something they don't know or can't find on Ebay and price is at a point I buy them. Have actually gotten some pretty good tools like that at similar estate sales.

Good score bandit!

That 60-1/2 got me to thinking about when I was teaching my son to cut dovetails...I love that little plane, Stanely really knocked it out of the park on that little one.

Got to have a really sharp edge on end grain, but dovetails are mostly working on the side, along the grain. I first scribe with a Olaf utility knife, cut out the wedge and use the 60-1/2 to take material down and it will pull the top of the scribe layer off and leave a clean scribe line for fit up.

OTOH, I don't really know what I'm doing, so take everything with a large grain of salt. The larger the grain the better, go big or go home as the saying goes...LOL

DISCLAIMER: this is the ONLY dovetail my son learned or cut in his life. I have always wanted to do more with woodworking and metalworking with him, even wanted him to make handsaw handles for me when he was living in a dorm off at school, but he was never interested. Me and the kids did several things like making cutting boards for their Mom on Mother's Day, stuff like that, but we only has a few of those projects. Now me and my son are closer and he does help me with some stuff from time to time, but I still respect him for the type of art he creates and the ideas that he comes up with. He is also the more likely between him and my daughter that would end up living in the home/shop I'm building. So, he will end up with my shop. Hopefully he will be able to build ANYTHING he wants.

Amazing how clean the logs are here as well, looking forward to getting some cleaner on the shell soon as I move it to the foundation.
