    FS-Dad's hand Tools

    My Dad recently passed peacefully after a long and pretty remarkable life. He was a pilot/engineer by profession and a lifelong woodworker who loved his tools. It's now my responsibility to pass these along. Proceeds go to Angel Tree Charity for kids with incarcerated parents. I want these to go to my fellow Creekers who will enjoy and appreciate them, but I'm not giving them away because proceeds go to a worthy cause.

    These are just a few of the hand tools I don't need. Most are brand new in original packaging. In his later years my Dad still enjoyed collecting tools even if he wasn't really able to use them. I've tried to include the reference prices from online sources for comparison. Buyer pays shipping and you must get 2 items so I don't have to make a million trips to the post office. First one to PM me gets the tools. Please include your shipping address. You pay me after I ship them and send you a PM with tracking number, ETA and total cost including shipping. I don't see my PMs in real time but will get back to you as soon as I can. Thanks!

    Most of those already have an equivalent in my shop. Not doing much tool buying these days. Seems soon enough someone will have to do with mine what you are doing with your dad's.

    Though I would like to know how you got 16 images in one post. Was the limit upped from 8?

    If still available I'll take the screwdrivers and Starrett square please.
    You only need 2 tools in life. If it's supposed to move and doesn't... use WD40. If it moves and shouldn't... use duct tape.

    Thanks all. Everything is sold except the record low angle block plane. I’ll be posting lots more of Dads tools in coming weeks including lots of portable power tools and restored vintage hand saws. Send me pm if you’re looking for specific hand saws. Between the two of us we have waaaay to many that need to go those who will enjoy and appreciate them.


    Best, Mike

    Mike - I failed to offer my condolences, and my regards for your impressive election for the charitable use of the proceeds.

    Thanks

    When I started woodworking, I didn't know squat. I have progressed in 30 years - now I do know squat.
