i had the pleasure of sharing with michael suwczinsky (aka nicknaylo) a few
hours of time from dawn's early light wandering the alameda flea
yesterday.  it was a day for larger items and later pickups...

https://kirkhmb.smugmug.com/Woodworking/Other-Galoots/Bill-Kasper/i-kHTn
Mg5/A

per usual we went straight to the back, and fairly quickly had some luck.
after i snagged 6 records in vg+ condition (including a great copy of
"street survivors" in its original cover with its original contents) i
managed an old kennedy straight-sided 520 that had been painted ugly and
needs a good de-rust prior to painting.  oh, and new felt in a lot of
drawers.  but the contents came with it, and andrew jackson was pleased to
be the agent of transfer.  we left it there to pick up later.

soon after michael picked up a versavise, a tall one (long-bill) and one of
andrews twins made its way to the seller who likewise held it for later
pickup.  along the way he picked up an offset bar hotcut, and i encouraged
him to spend $2 on meader's "illustrated guide to shaker furniture".  that
was about it for michael.  i managed to find a pair of fiamm airhorns to
mount on my 87 vanagon syncro westfalia, plus a bucket-o-tubes for my
amplifiers.

then i found what feels like one of the nicest adjustable-mouth block
planes i've held, comfortable and well balanced.  it was made by some guy
named bailey; apparently his designs were bought out by stanley a few years
later.  in very good condition for something made when our country was rent
by civil war, i can't wait to get it cleaned and sharpened.  what's it
mean, though, when the blade is stamped "L. Bailey's Patent Aug 6. 67 Aug
31. 58 EXT'd."?  they extend a patent?  same plane, in as good or better
condition, as this:
https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/leonard-
baileys-1867-1858-ext-patent-1799563768

my final purchase of the day came after i noticed, on the ground under a
seller's table, half covered by something soft, a late-model empire 598 II
(troubadour) turntable.  i asked how much for that, and his answer of
twinned jacksons had them out and in his hand rather quickly.  i requested
he hold on to it until we came back, to his assent.

knt/A

not much else was seen, or desired, after that.  in fact, we made the
decision (after finding a fleamarket shopping cart abandoned by its renter)
to skip the front five or six rows and pick up our kit while rerunning the
rows at the back that had filled in, somewhat, since our earlier foray; we
found nothing new for us to bag...

it was a good day, finished off in style at ramiro's for mexican lunch.

Garrett Wade has a little device that sell with their version of that vice that
makes increases the versatility - the only way to add mere Versa to that Vice.
I got one and put it on my daughter’s guitar repair bench and it is used every
day.  Maybe they would sell that little piece separately:

Good find on the block plane - really fun to find something like that.

the accessory mount?  which little device?

and yeah, i saw it and held it and i wanted it.  felt just perfect in my
hand.  i just can't tell if it's a leonard bailey, or a bailey tool co.
plane...i lean towards the former.

On the sire below, you can see an unpainted iron piece that fits over the post
in the base, then into the hole in the side of the vice,  This allows another
plane of movement  for the jaws.  Their vice is made in China, and they have the
extra piece made elsewhere.

It doesn't look bad in the pictures. All of the drawers are there, no visible
holes, both catches and the lock latch are there, there are no large dents in
hte top. Is the front cover there, and did it come with a key? I have several
that required patches and body filler that cost more. They go high in my area.
That would have been a Grant (or maybe even a Franklin, for a 526), contents
extra.


Even with the work to clean and repaint, much, much less expensive than new,
though as of the last new one I was involved with (several years ago at a job. I
didn't get to keep the box, to my unsurprised disappointment) was of
substantially the same quality of the older ones, though I do prefer the locking
hasp and leather handle to the cam lock and current handle.


Last one I did, I re-felted fully, including the dividers and all around the
sides of the top tray. It was a little less expensive to buy a sheet of good
quality felt, lay it out, and cut it to fit myself than to go to Kennedy, and it
is better protection for the tools.

A very admirable plan

I heard of him. Made good stuff, but they didn't hold up well. Some of them are
already near worn out.

whats in the box, whats in the box, whats in the box?? hahaaha

   As far as relining Kennedy drawers
Felt is a pain. If you do use felt, cut cardboard and glue the felt to that
first.

I used gasket cork on the last one I did.
A have a stash of it free for guys I love. Easy to cut and glue down
       
   Michael sucks, to score a tall jaw Versa! sheesh

Thank you Scott, I know you really mean it :-)

This is the second one of these I've come across, I have a bit of a vice
problem, I"m not proud, the last one got passed on to a friend who makes
cigar box guitars and archery long bows, I think he would get more use out
of it than me.

This one was too neat to leave behind (you always say that says the lovely
wife) but needs a good cleaning to see any markings on it. and to free up
the bit that secures the vise to the base. Jaws also see to be a bit
misaligned but that might be the base clamping feature as well.

james, yeah, i think i might have mentioned it once, or twice, per hour,
after i picked it up :)  and it was the first purchase of the day :D

i listened to it the other day, and it is in mint condition (the vinyl).  a
few apologies on the cover, but the inserts and the correct sleeve are
there, too.

i'd forgotten how good steve gaines was...

Right after the accident, I bought a copy of the album with flames, with
the intention of keeping it unopened as an investment.  My mother
thought it was a present for her and opened it up.  I still don't think
it's ever been played.
