Weekend finds

Very busy on a special project, which will be revealed here soon, but I did have a few minutes to look at the garage sales in my area this weekend.

Grabbed this pair of Starrett dividers (they cleaned up very well) along with a set of auger bits and an expansive bit for $5.  Not too bad, I feel.  Here's the rusty one above, after a few minutes effort:

Spent a little more on this:

A Stanley #5 from about 1925.  Its in excellent shape.  I haven't even sharpened it yet and it took great shavings.  The iron appears totally square, so I will give it the suggested camber for use as a fore plane, and most likely add another iron or two, a straight one and a toothed one.
