Barn Sale goodies

  Re: Barn Sale goodies by bandit571 (About froze me tail ...)
At one time, I did have a Craftsman Mitre Box...
   
And..
   
But, got replaced by a Stanley No. 358....and a Stanley No.2246.....the 358 was replaced by a Langdon No. 75...
   
This is how the Craftsman looked, when it came home ($5.00)   Apparently, there are rubber "O" rings that fit into grooves in those plastic guides...
Show me a picture, I'll build a project from that

If I recall correctly, that general design originated with one of the European toolmakers - but can't remember, and my brain, anymore, resembles a rusted colander, so don't rely on the idea.

Lee Valley carries the Nobex miter box.  Similar design but uses a bar rather than the tube.

That Craftsman miter box is different than the one I had. Mine has half circular guide posts, with the flats facing inwards. Would flex badly!
