    Default Flea market tool finds

    Believe it or not, you can find things other than razors at flea markets and yard sales. Today's hunting netted a few "sharp" items:

    Included are a Disston Hand Saw, Stanley/Bailey No.5 Plane, Unknown Maker Brace and 4 bit set, a small vise and a 72" folding rule. Not a bad haul for under $50 U.S.

    I've been trying to learn (re-learn?) traditional woodworking. The hardest part is finding quality tools. That's where the flea market/yard sale comes in handy! Last month was a wood chisel set and a marking gauge.

    Good tools are nice to have. I have a few. Nice to pick them up on the cheap.
    It's not what you know, it's who you take fishing!
