I wish I didn't live in an apartment, because there was some nice stationary power tools for sale as well.

Some nice stuff there!

What's the purpose of the first tool? Is it just a bit brace, or does it have some specific purpose? I haven't seen one like that before....

Holy hell dude! You got a No 45 for $130 and they through the other stuff in free! lol that No 45 is one monster of a find!

Being your cramped for space and all... I'd buy the 45 and blades from ya and let ya keep the extras they threw in !

The bit brace's actual name is a Miller Falls No. 502 Corner Brace, which helps paint a picture of what it's used for.

firemedic, I am looking forward to keeping the 45 (that's mostly intact) and the blades. I would be willing to part with the one that is missing some pieces (the one in the first post) though if your interested. I am going to go back to this place on Saturday and see if I can find some of the missing parts.

The sad thing is that I saw two other guys that bought combination planes before me and there were a few craftsman ones left for sale.

Yeah, I agree. I don't think I will have come across a time I would need to use it, but I definitely thought it would look cool hanging in my future shop.

Yeah man, if you can find the pieces to it I'm interested!

I suggest that if you are able to find any of the larger jointer planes that you jump on them, they are getting more and more difficult to acquire due to all the damn collectors who aren't even proficient swinging a hammer.

If you did the work, and used hand tools, you'd appreciate the diversity of the tool. Too bad it'll just hang on a future wall.

Cman, I think my previous statement might of gave you the wrong idea. I am a novice and I feel that I should begin learning everything to know about woodworking and
that one should begin with hand tools. The few projects I have made so far have only been with hand tools (and jigsaw). In regards to the corner brace, I just don't know what type of projects I would be doing in the future which would require this tool. Maybe I don't know all the uses for it, or maybe when I get more involved in larger projects I will realize its usefulness. But I will definatly take it off the wall when I feel that it will be useful.

The corner brace allows you to drill a hole in a corner or up next to a wall were a normal brace would not work.Try it and you will see what I mean.
