1. The Marketplace Forums can be useful for members who know one another well from forum discussions and offline communications and wish to post boatbuilding tools, drafting tools, molds and tooling, and other professional equipment for sale or trade. However, caution and good judgement should always be used. Especially when considering any business with anyone not already well known to you and trusted, due diligence must be used to confirm details and identity and be sure the transaction is safe before any money or property changes hands. Always use good judgement and perform due dilligence and follow these guidelines.

Tools or Toys...

    Picked these up at Harbor Freight yesterday for $20 for the 3. Bottoms are flat and square, solid brass and some hardwood center...perhaps walnut or a stained oak. I expect the irons aren't the greatest but they could be replaced with some good steel from a big Band saw blade or something similar. Block plane, scraper plane and a bullnose. Not a bad deal I think.

    I like that little scrapper plane. not a bad haul for 20 bucks. Edges look a bit hard on your hand...perhaps a bit of fileing Harbour freight has some good stuff. Their steel worktables are cheap and surprisingly robust.
