    What I've noticed is they're taking in roommates and other hacks like this to afford the home, and that's making up for the income issues.

    Cut resistant glove?

    Hey guys,
    Can you recommend a good, cut resistant glove that is made in the USA? It would be used for hand carving, so dexterity would be nice.
    Thanks!

    Of the three bevels, two have no markings, and the third is a Stanley with a patent date of 9-06-04 (i.e. 1904). That's nice it's a Stanley. That wasn't visible until I cleaned them up today.

    Shellac is also my go to finish. I use Everclear to handmix small batches, from flakes, as needed. It produces great results.

    I actually prefer it to d.alcohol because it's more natural.

    Thanks, Andrew. Here is the blade on those antique wooden planes. I thought it was a rabbet plane, but your suggestion looks right.

    Here are some images of what I think are the best tools and the condition. Two of the three bevel squares look to be ebony and brass, which is nice. The T squares can use restoration. I think those...

    Thanks. That's good to hear, though I think I will keep most of what I bought. I had no idea about Marsh.

    Does anyone know about them? They...
