    Default What are these

    Today I found a few tools hidden in the old mans shed (he had demensia and hid a lot of his stuff found some stuff in strange places over the last few years). Iím not sure what a couple are and how theyíre used. He did a lot of woodwork when I was a kid and Iím interested to know what these are used for

    3/4 is a saw set for setting the kerf width of the teeth on a hand saw.

    5/6/7 is a guide for sharpening plane blades. Clamp the blade in it
    and set the length from the front to the sharp end of the blade.
    Wheel runs on the stone keeping a constant angle.

    8/9/10 is a rebate plane, for cutting groves pre-router days.

    In order:

    1. The first pic looks like it's a marking gauge, but can't see what's on the other side f what I'm presuming is the stock (there should be some mechanism to lock it on the beam & a steel point ot cutter on the side that's down. At first I thought it was the reverse of the next pic., which is definitely a mortising/marking gauge. A tool to scratch marks at a fixed distance from an edge according to where the stock (aka "fence") is set.

    2. Saw-set (a tool for pushing saw teeth over a little, known as "setting"

    3. Honing guide. It holds a chisel or plane blade, etc., at a fixed angle while you rub it back & forth on a sharpening stone.

    5. As it says on the packet - a combination plane. By changing the blades you can cut the matching profile on a piece of wood...

    Cheers,
    IW

    As these tools are from your fathers time ,it seems to me a good idea to hold onto them given the cost to replace any of them down the track .
    They are all useful tools that will serve your purpose as your needs in time change.

    I’m going to keep them, just been finding all the hidden stuff as I slowly clean up. A lot of tools have gone somewhere and I don’t know if I’ll ever find them unfortunately.
