I want to start a thread dedicated to deals on hand tools, new and old - good and bad!
For example, here is a pretty good deal on an early model Bailey 608C.
I really should buy it, Early Bailey C's are my fav and I in fact don't have one like this - but I need more jointers, much less more planes, about as much as I need a new screen door on my submarine.
I'm hoping we can all post deals on new and vintage tools here... but to keep things light I think we can make fun of the crazy deals too, like this set of chisels
. I mean, I guess those chisels aren't too bad a deal, it works out to only $980.00 per chisel - plus $5 shipping of course.
FYI, the link to the Bailey 608C I provided above is the site that used to be "Joesbucketorust" - for those of you who remember Joe from him previously being a member here you know he's a great guy and I'm sure he will be happy to answer any questions you have about his tools as well as dig out specially requested tools.
I've purchased several tools from him and have been very happy with having no bad surprises on tools being as described. To be honest I'm addicted to buying the misc lots of tools he list for cheap even though I don't really need em!
Happy Hand Tool trails,
