  1. Jesse, I'll buy the bending iron.  But only if you increase the price back to 650.  You shouldn't have to take such a bath on this thing.  Let me know the details of payment.  My address is 207 Nelray Blvd, Austin, Tx  78751.

      I’ll look for it. It should be here by Friday so I’ll post it Saturday. Assuming it’s here by then.

      I’m going to list all my violin wood. Everything is at least 5yrs old. Some 10-15yrs. 90% is Red Maple. 

      Would you be willing to give a opinion if I send you a back? No charge obviously. 

      If yes I’ll pack it with the iron.

    W. E. Hill finger planes and a Tasai chisel

    Sale pending on the planes. Chisel still a available jesse
  8. I’m starting to sell my duplicate tools or ones I don’t use. Car repairs and life dictate this unfortunately. The finger planes are stamped W. E. Hill and sons. And have a brass insert (see pic) sizes : 15mm (but might actually be 16mm, I don’t have a bigger iron to test), 11mm, and 8mm irons. All are slightly convex and In really good condition. I have shown these around to people who I trust to know and the consensus is that they were put out by the Hill shop. Nobody is 100% but close. And I stopped trying to find more info. The Tasai chisel is hammer finish Wakizashi chisel. Meaning it’s made with a slightly heavier build. 24mm and only used 2 or 3 times to test. Email me at or IM me here if interested. All reasonable offers considered. Jesse

    gee that STINKS... how to remove scent smells!?

    Baking soda in a box or carefully wiping vinagar might help not on the varnish of course. Both are helpful in other areas to remove odors. Jesse

    Looking for info on these finger planes.

    And yes they look a lot like prestons that I've seen. Not exact but close.

    Looking for info on these finger planes.

    No not marked unfortunately. But they still have the tempering coloration if that helps at all. The color isnprobably useless for identifying them but I'll add it to the mix anyway.
