With the threat of rain the field wasn’t full, but there were plenty of buyers.
- Awl – 50p
This was my first find of the day.
I already have plenty of awls, but I really liked the shape of the handle of this one.
- Paring/pattern makers chisel – £2
This seems to have a handle intended for much more abuse than a chisel of this type would receive.
Once I start wood turning I intend to make new handles for all the car boot chisels that need them.
I can’t make out the manufacturer but it may be a Marples:
- Marsden Brothers 1 1/2” gouge – £3
- Thomas Riley 1 1/2” chisel – £3
I can’t make out whether it’s Thomas F Riley or Thomas E Riley:
The next items came from a lady who offered 10p per tool or £1 for each box of tools. I was strong and didn’t buy all 3 boxes! 🙂
- Fretsaw – 10p
I can’t see a makers mark on this and it’s a bit bent, but for 10p I figure I can’t go far wrong …
- Siva hand drill – 10p
I was just attracted by its crown marking and 1940 date:
- Henry Diston & Sons saw – 10p
This has seen better days, with a missing nut/bolt in the handle and a small chip out of the tote:
I thought it deserved a chance so I’ll add it to the derusting pile …
- The one that got away – £130
I saw this rather lovely looking old lathe for £130, but I have neither the money or the space, so I left it for someone else …
As well as the tools we also picked up:
- Olive pizza bread – £1
- 4 Cheese straws – £4
- Various toys and games for the girls – £10
- Candy floss – £2
- 5 mins for each girl on the Bouncy castle – £3
- Admission: £1 (2 adults)
- Total tool spend: £8.80
- Total other spend: £20
- Grand total: £39.80
