Has anybody come across
this tool maker or brand before? I have a 7 inch
drawknife with a laminated blade that I would say is
19th century sometime, but I can't find a thing on Glass
I have gone through the
archives, I've Googled it senseless and all my reference
books are still in storage. I am having difficulty
wanting to face 40 cases of books, but soon...
This may be of limited interest so feel free to ping me
firstname.lastname@example.org It is a
pretty catchy email address, but when I forget it, I
know I am in real trouble!
Now, I don't normally get
into personal advice, but I will warn you of a danger in
tool hunting of which I only recently became aware.
Not wanting to make a 3rd
trip to empty the trunk of all the old tools, I decided
that if I put a monkey wrench in each pocket of my
sweats and if I nested the saws and layered on the
drawknives I could make it in one last trip. Never
underestimate the power of gravity!
Thankfully, the yard is
secluded... Just before I reached the deck my
pants fell to my ankles in one fell swoop.
There I stood frozen for a
moment in time in my very large boxer shorts. Many
things ran through my mind, but it came down to two
choices - the tools or my pants. At that moment, I
asked myself, what would Tony Seo do?
The answer was clear, save
the tools at all cost! So, I waddled two more
steps and gently laid down the saws on a bench, hitched
up my pants, unloaded my pockets and humbly carried my
saws to the shop. Now I know why us fat, I mean,
portly gentlemen wear suspenders!
I may just go
back to bib overalls and be done with it - lots of
pockets for lots of tools. It might be easier on
the neighbors as well. I'd hate to think that the
old lady on the other corner went into vapours 'cause I
accidentally mooned her in the afternoon! I am
heading back to my lair.
