A jointer worth a mention

I found this In a small barn on Antique Alley, rt 4 in NH. The owner, Charlie, is 89 years old. He’s still hitting Donnelly’s auctions.

For the weekend I came home with some cool stuff,

Some of it will be for sale soon. So keep an eye out or contact me if there is something of interest.

All I could say when I found it was, “This is so cool”.

A long ago infill made from 2 pieces of angle iron. A tree branch for a handle. The bottom has been screwed and then flattened. I had tot try it. Just a few strokes on the oil stone and away we went.

 

Its 27” long.
