#2c Stanley

Guess who picked one at a swap meet today for $15.00! I pulled that money out faster than old west gun fighter pulled a 6 shouter. To those who think i'm a liar, i decided to post the pic of the #2 that I still have, a few of the others, that I have in my house that I built myself and is full of furniture that I built myself. I have a bunch more out in my 4 car garage that I built myself along with my Rockwell unisaw,8" jointer, 15 planer, drill press, band saw, belt disk sander, 100s of hand tools, and don't forget my 69 camaro, 72 buick, car lift....Also thats my ID and va card by the tools so you know its me. Also I'm posted some of the stuff I've made.

No pics? You scored a 2 and have no pics.

That's an amazing yarn.

But this is woodworkingtalk, not knittingtalk.

He actually had two 2's, and he said he sold one of them...the "C". It's entirely possible that he is not full of BS. He may have reasons for not taking that minute to snap a quick picture for us.

On another forum I visit there is a guy that posts several "gloats" a week about loads of hardwood that he got for pocket change, or that was left on the side of the road, like 500BF of White Oak. Other posts about LN chisels he got for $2.00 each. He claimed to be a woodworker since he was 14 yrs old, and has used every type of woodworking equipment around. What doesn't make sense is that he said his camera broke. What baffles me is that he asks questions that are indicative of his lack of knowledge.

So, lets not prejudge johnray. All the pictures of work that he claims is his might really be. Now if that is all true, we would feel really bad...wouldn't we.

I enjoy hand tools quite a bit, I'd love to see that one as well! I've never had the pleasure of owning one myself

I see this everywhere!

Never said anything negative about his work! I just wanna see the tools!... You know how I love hand tools!

clamps

I'll bought and sold lots of clamps too. Usually pay 3-5.00 and sell for 10.+-. I don't like to buy them, a pain to handle. If the guy lived around me I would let you use them the clamps here but let him take them home. You can't trust anyone. If any of you douters are in the Cocoa, Fl. area, come by and look. you can check at the county to make sure I own the property too.

See! That wasn't so difficult! Pictures = it happened... That's how it goes here. Nice collection. I'd be very interested in rounds, hollows and DT planes.

I live too far away to come by with cash but I'd also be interested in a couple decent Disston ripping hand saws, 6-8 tpi, if you had em for a reasonable price.

If you have paypal and willing to ship let me know what ya got in that realm and we can make a deal.

Oh, and I find it amusing that the other guys here with my cell # have been txt'n me pictures of they're tools with their ID sitting on em... Very entertaining
