Day #1 at the Tractor Fest
And spent a whopping $13.25, to boot...
$1 Chisel 1-3/4" width....Millers Falls "Buck Rogers No. 308 ( 3/8" chuck) $1....Stanley Handyman No. H1220 $1....both drills have drill points inside the handles

$5 for a canvas roll of brace bits...and...
Lufkin No. 456, 6" stainless steel caliper..$1

There was also a cloth roll to store chisels in...just the roll...$0.25..
Then there was this block plane...the oem cap was broken, but...a loose INTACT cap iron was in the tray with it..Paid $3 total..
Sargent No. 306 Adjustable mouth block plane...

Wasn't too bad a day, even IF half the vendors weren't even open on Friday....

So...anyone want to see what I passed on?
Show me a picture, I'll build a project from that

Ok..where'd I leave off..
Didn't need any drawknives...already have a 6" and an 8" IN the shop..
This is where I picked that Sargent Block plane at...might have gotten the pick of the litter?
Axe heads and irons? hmmm...
Keep on file?
$40 set?   was a few "Gold Plated" things...too.
Box lots?
And, by the tub?
I spent the same amount for my 3 items, as I did for ONE bottle of water...
2 wire brushes, one steel, one brass...and a Great Neck No. 9 coping saw..with a real wood handle...

Brushes were put to work as soon as I got home...
As I cleaned up the Millers Falls No. 308 Buck Rogers Drill...the other drill is a No. 104 model...the 308 is 3/8"...the 104 is 1/4"...otherwise, the drills are the same.

Fest runs through Sept 4, 2023..and ends at dusk...

Looks like Heaven, to me, Bandit! Those Buck Rogers drills are pretty slick to use!

I've never seen that many open ended torque wrenches in one box.
And there is 2 line torque wrenches also.
