It was my birthday recently, and I thought I might show you the tools I got given.
As you can see, I got given a quick release tail-vise, which I will be installing on the end of my new workbench (when I get around to making it, that is!)…
…and two new wood thread cutting kits. I already have a ¾” and a 1″ set, and now I have a ½” and a 1½” set. Apparently there is a 1¼” set as well, so maybe this Christmas I’ll end up with the full set (hint hint). I am most pleased with the 1½” set, as this will allow me to make my own leg vise for my new bench.
I also got a set of hake brushes, for applying shellac; a set of gimlets, for starting threads for screws; and a burnishing tool, for sharpening cabinet scrapers. Happy days!
