I look at the gorgeous NOS displays that some have, and I think of my single
new-in-a-tattered-box #4 Stanley. I love new old stock tools, but all of mine
are users, so if I bought one, soon it wouldn't be new. Still, I've seen a few
of Bill's tools, and I could spend days looking at his displays. I don't know
how he has time, but he puts my progress on projects to shame!

I still have that piece of cherry I got from you Bill, and it's waiting for the
right project.

If there is a zig zag rule shortage I'll offer my apologies for at least 
part of it.  I picked up this Lufkin rule display last fall at Brown's 
auction: http://billw

Then, in February, another auction netted these:

I don't like the ratty boxes much so I made two of these:

Now, back to the wood pile.  I think I have a nice dry piece of cherry 
to make a really big square.
