With all the talk of the recenteconomical doom and gloom, one

thinghas failed to be mentioned by the talking heads in the media,

supertool.com’sStandard & Poor’s rating has been raised to a

heretoforeunreachable level of AAAAAA+ - the business community

recommendit as a strong buy.

 

  So, if you’re worried about where tofloat your mad money and are

seekinga safe haven in a sea of tumultuous financials, old tools

are thetranquil port of refuge. What else can you purchase and

then useto make useful things without worry about their depreciation?

 

  Lately, emails to/from me have beenvectored to some cyber black

hole,never reaching their destination. I answer all emails, so if

youhaven’t heard from me, your/my email is likely having high tea

in saidblack hole, never to be heard from, so please try again.

 

  If you have questions about what theStanley numbers are, you can

look the planes upon Blood&Gore:

 

         http://www.supertool.com/stanleybg/stan0.htm

 

  If there is anything in particular thatyou're after, do ping

me as there is a lotof stuff here that isn't on the list; the

list just representsa snapshot of the previous month's haul with

none of the stuffhaving appeared on a previous list.

 

  Please email me prior to sending moneyso that you can be sure

the tool is still upfor grabs. Also, prices do not include shipping,

which is the exactamount that it takes to go from me to you.

 

  This list goes out to many people onthe first Monday of the month.

So, if you seesomething you want, it's the quickest finger on the

trigger that winsthe duel.

 

  Also, due to the nature of selling overthe wires, tools are sold

on a first come,first serve basis. The first person to say "I'll

take it", getsit. I have to operate this way as some will take a

few days to get backto me with their interest in a particular item,

and it's unfair tokeep others waiting who are willing to buy immed-

iately.

 

  I reserve the right to correcttypographical errors, after the

list goes out. Irarely make them, but when I do, they can be

major ones.

 

  If you’re the kind of person who puts astraightedge to the sole

of a #40, to checkfor flatness, or who tosses a plane on a scale

to weigh it againstwhat it states in the Stanley catalogues, you’ll

need to take yourbusiness elsewhere. I’ll wish you luck finding

perfection insomething that was never made, nor intended to be,

perfect. You guysknow who you are, and it’s best for both of us

that our paths don’tcross.

 

  Lastly, and I hate to have to mentionthis, but if you tell me

that money is on theway for something you want, and you never make

good on it, we won’tbe doing business in the future. It’s unfair,

actually downrightdiscourteous, to others who want the same thing,

and I tell them it’ssold. Pull this on me, and you’re exorcised

from the list.Sorry, but I don’t tolerate this behavior well at

all.

 

  Don't forget the cool new tools thatI'm making - a jazzy layout

knife being used byprofessionals (made cover of Feb '98 FWW!); a

detachable blockplane handle designed to fit your 20 degree

block planes, andthe finest bench plane in production today, the

Bed Rock #601. Youcan see all this at:

 

  http://www.supertool.com/newtools.htm

 

  Finally, remember that you don't haveto be a connoisseur (did

I spell thatcorrectly?) to shop here. You can be a wirehead, a

metalhead, azipperhead, a propellerhead, a deadhead, a cokehead,

or even aknuckle-dragging oaf, just like me, to shop here, as

long as your dinerois green.

 

  Thanks for shopping, and remember, noletters/words were injured

  FEATURED TOOL OF THE MONTH

  ******** **** ** *** *****

 

  FT1  Tool boy is showing off two chunks of metal – the

       barelyvisible complex wiring stuck to his teeth,

       and theeasily spotted larger chunk of metal in his

       hands;it’s the latter we’ll concentrate on, as it’s

       nicer tolook at and far less costly than the metal

       bitswithin his mouth; probably one of the earliest

      dovetailed panel planes made by Mathieson, dating to

       the 1850’s,this carefully used, and treasured, plane

       isessentially in the same condition when made long

       ago;dovetailed steel construction, stuffed with the

       choicestrosewood available, this plane looks some-

       whatprimitive when compared to later examples that

       evolvedfrom this design; amazingly the tote is free

       ofcracks, chips, and repairs, just a few bang marks

       arevisible along the top of the horn as a result of

       slightlymisdirected hammer blows when setting the

       iron; therosewood wedge show similar marks from

       backingthat off, the bun similarly is lightly marked,

       otherwisethis specimen looks like it came directly

       out of abackward time warp; 13 1/2" long, with a

       2 1/4" wide iron by Ward, a singleowner stamp neatly

       placedbelow the bun, this is a significant plane for

       lovers ofinfill planes and Mathieson production:

  MI139 Davis Patent smoothing plane;antique tool lovers are

       well familiar with this company’s ornate cast iron

        andfar between; this is a plane that never should

       have been made as its merits are adjacent to nil,

        andthe design is fraught with weaknesses that render

        ituseless after any real use; a pity that a company

       that mastered inclinometers could offer such a weak

       entry in the plane race, but there you are; this

       example has all original parts, including the front

       knob that has a flat cut at the top, likely so that

        theoriginal owner could get his fingers onto the

       clamping screw just behind it; a reproduction knob

        ison the plane, that can easily be removed for the

        partialcrack, just below the thumb screw, not above

        it,the fatal design flaw that doomed the plane;

       some gold remnants at the base of the ‘frog’, the

       plane has never been cleaned, it’s still a very

  MI160 Most unusual bookbinder’s rollwith 12 interchangeable

       rolls, many of which are quite elaborate; the handle

        ofthis one is electrified to heat the roll as the

       obviously manufactured, though I see nothing to indicate

        bywhom; being sold as an artifact, and not to be used

        ofTed Bundy, notorious mass murderer who met his maker

       from 2000V of alternating current while comfortably

       seated in Ol’ Sparky in Florida’s big house; roughly

        22”long, and in fine shape, noting that the wiring’s
