    You can look them up on Tools for working wood and compare to what they sell for new.

    I would think a cabinet to keep the dust off combined with wiping with oil before putting them away would be enough. The heaters, etc. strike me as overkill. But then I don’t live in East Texas, so...

    WD-40 and a mild abrasive. Wipe clean with a paper towel, and wax. Works for saws, planes, just about anything really.

    My wife has made marshmellows using the recipe Alton Brown published. They taste a lot different than what you get in the store. No dairy in that recipe.

    Talking about Norway, Canada, or Iceland as examples of how we can power California is not realistic. Can anybody point to a significant hydroelectric plant in the US that has been built in the last...

    Even in California, natural gas appears to be providing more power than solar, wind, and hydro combined.

    Nothing against the Moravians(or anything else for that matter). If your travels bring you and your traveling RV show to the east coast, stop in and I will gladly try it out.

    Need more time on mine to be 100% sure, but at this point am 95% plus certain that if I build a knockdown it will be a Nicholson.

    Good useful idea Phil.

    Budget options here:

    Built a Nicholson over the summer, using the plans from Mike Siemsen. Modified his plans to make it 10’ long. Probably do not really need that, but...

    The tool collectors meeting is a really good suggestion. I always go to the local Patina events when I can, and in the early days rarely came away without something I thought was a really good deal....

    Only way to tell if it is useable is to use it (my opinion anyway).

    If you go to eBay and look at sold listings, you can get an idea of what similar planes are selling for. Depends a little bit...

    I have written a note on the envelope and put it back in the box in that circumstance. About half the time the mail (with the note) is back in my box in a day or two. All you can do is try I guess.

    Pillows, etc. are easy to change as tastes and styles change. Mantle less so. Think about something that future owners will be able to work with as styles and tastes change.

    Craftsman Studios lists cranked neck chisels by Buck Brothers. I just looked and they show as out of stock. I have never tried them.
