« Part 1: Building a Spring Pole Lathe.....the base Part 2 of Old Time Woodworking series Part 3: Shop Dogs & Pole Lathes »

I have been trying to pick up some tools to allow me to do all my woodworking powerless (well electrical power anyway). I scan ebay a lot and take the mighty chance that what I get is in decent shape and can be restored and put back into use. Recently I scored 3 hand augers for $20 total. The sizes are 1”, 1/2” and 2”. The 2” one is massive and still pretty sharp, just a little rusty.

I also just got in the mail yesterday 6 hand brace for a descent price. 3 are Stanley’s, 2 I can’t find a name on, and the blue handled one has Penncraft wrote on it. I will probably be reselling the 3 non Stanley’s.

I’ve tried the augers out in just random wood. I need to hurry up and clean them, I got that itch to start just making holes, haha.
