    Ditto. I got lucky. Local auction had a retoother and setter, both mounted to the same stand. I got them both, and several boxes of vintage Nicholson and K&F files, all for $70. I already have the...

    Malcolm and Kent, you guys are just too generous. As tempting as it is, I couldn't possibly take advantage of you like that. :D

    Actually, other than the posts that are simple derision (one of which was hilariously ironic), most of these responses mirror exactly what my initial plans were upon buying these. I planned on buying...

    Sorry to intrude on your day, Joe. I'm just trying to get as many opinions as possible.

    Just out of curiosity, what forum actually competes with this one? I thought they were all useful and all...

    Hi Dave, I guess I am a bit excited over the find. I enjoy rusthunting and finding tools in the wild. While these don't qualify as 'rust', they are well made hand planes. I may end up using one of...
