I didn’t get any time in the workshop during the week.
Yesterday was spent at a family birthday in a rural village hall, where I noticed this rather nice little toggle/latch, holding a long trestle table against the wall:
Something about the shape and simplicity made me like it.
Today we went to Pease Pottage car boot sale in the morning, but with the uncertain weather there was a very low turn out of stallholders (the main field was probably less than half full).
There were only 3 stalls with any hand tools on at all and most were cheap rubbish that had been abused, so I didn’t find anything at all to
waste spend my money on.
This afternoon I was able to complete the vice bases.
One of the wooden planes in my recent eBay purchase was broken in transit, with a clean break in the tote:
As with last time I glued a tote I’ve used weatherproof glue so I don’t need to worry about sweaty hands damaging the joint.

I’ve finished derusting my metal bodied planes for now, so while the blades and chip breakers from my wooden bodied planes were soaking in the derusting fluid I reassembled the metal ones.
This post is mainly for my own benefit …
Most of my timber is catalogued below, but a lot isn’t, including the MDF, ply, tanalised timber and most of my pine and reclaimed timber.
Where I know them the price and which batch they were purchased in are also logged.
This post has now been converted to a page.
