I saw that they changed the year cutoff to never expire.  Photobucket really made a mess of this thread though.

Yeah, I was sorry to miss the pics Photobucket messed up. 

My personal favorite tool pictured was Derek's brace; not a lot of people cranking those out by hand these days. 

I also loved Barry's plane--"just git 'er done."
If you're gonna be one, be a Big Red One.

I've made quite a few. Some didn't work out, some I took no photos.

The belt grinder is my favorite. It gets 90% of the work for sharpening and grinding since it's so much easier and faster and can put a good polish on with a fine belt.
A year old now, I have made a change or two, such as a better facing plate.
