Once again the A. Wright & Son Lambsfoot Guardians 19!!!
Carried my old Craftsman Barlow today.
Good quartet of users, the Wright seems to have led a bit of a roughhouse existence What with new pin and the tip looks broken off...did you do the EZ Open notch? Must help with a tough spring.
Thank you, Will. It is indeed a Case Half Whittler; very compact and easy to carry.
Gunstock jack today in some nicer weather.
When a pencil needs a point, I reach for the ‘nut.
What is a robot mower? Is that like a Roomba for the lawn?
Sounds like you had a good day; that Grohmann looks handy.
I've been carrying The Whale all week, testing how well the India ink stays put. All's well so far.
This. 7 days a week for 30 years. Legally, it's a 'traditional culinary tool' in France.
I consider myself lucky that I constantly get to use my knives almost every single day at work.
You have some Great Taste in knives my friend and this is another one of them .
Thanks Dean. Nice sunken joints on that rig and beautiful background.
That was a two-blader originally, and not Wright's best work. The pen blade covered the main nail-nick, so I ground/ filed the pen into a mini clip blade to uncover the main nick. That allowed me to get my nail into the nick perpendicularly, which was pretty hard on my nail, so I did the eo notch with a dremel drum sander. So I could open the main by pinching it, but the secondary was so short with such a strong spring as to need a screwdriver to open it. So I finally chopped open the knife, removed the pen/clip and spring, and replaced the pin with the wrong material in not quite the right diameter. Then I dropped the knife point-down on the concrete floor. @Jack Black thinks I may have voided the warranty.
A neat folder from France came today via a friend @RayseM thanks again Ray she's a beaut and a brute at the same time, B&B

Only carry Stag on days that end with a "Y ". Checking out the Lettuce , Carrots , Beans , and Cucumber Plants in the Trug or raised garden .
Just happens to be a small farm 3 miles away that raises the Highland Cows.
The two SAK categories on my weekly schedule are filled by very similar knives this week.
Alox of the Week is a Vic red Alox Secretary, and non-Alox SAK of the Week is a Vic red celidor Pocket Pal:
Nice knife, but great planer!
I have been making do with a poor man's alternative, a home made router sled to thin stock for guitar bodies. It works surprisingly well. A hand plane is just too much like actual work!
I suppose if I were a serious woodworker like you, I'd have to spring for a planer.
WIll, I LOVE the Grohman!
The stag Stockman looks...familiar.
Klein knives are great. Top quality, fair price. True working man's knives, and you can find them in a lot of hardware stores.
You are probably well aware, but they also make really good screwdrivers and pliers. A lot of folks use their screwdrivers because the tips are ground properly and don't damage screws.
Warranties are overrated.
I love to see someone willing to tear something apart in order to put it back together in a way that suits their needs. And the ingenuity to fix their mistakes. (story of my life)
Got a warranty replacement for my 1/4" Klein flat head at Home Depot this past Saturday as a matter of fact.
Harry, I hope your wrist is recovering on schedule! Don't push it - it's going to take however long it takes!
Your raised beds are coming along nicely! You're ahead of me.
As usual, I have one raised bed entirely planted in spinach, and another with two varieties of kale. The seedlings were about an inch high when the neighbor's chickens got inside the fence that I had to put up to keep them out and tore it all up. I sent her a text asking her to PLEASE clip their wings... heartfelt apologies and promises to clip them over the weekend when her Dad was there to help. This afternoon, I came out the front door to find a big fat egg layer tearing up my fenced in tomato patch. This time, Manny the dog was out with me. He took care of it for me.
I love this dog.
