I bought the set today and already returned it. Not one of the tools was remotely sharp.
One even had an half millimetre edge…
The box was nicer than the chisels but the finish came off.
So I would not recommend buying this set.

Thanks for the heads-up. I see that they also sell them here in Belgium.
For € 25 you can’t really go wrong so I might buy some after having a look at them in the store.

I have the same problem with my vise from fine-tools.com. You really have to give it a good push/pull to open or close it. And then it makes a loud rattling noise.
After using the vise for a year I contacted Fine-Tools and we agreed to send it back
so they could have a look at it. According to them they found nothing abnormal an told
me the some vises make more noise than others.
I got my vise back but it still has the same problems.

I made some JPEG’s to give a better view.

I was inspired by the previous post and tried designing one myself. It is also a top bar hive.
Most beehives you find online are a few planks screwed together. Being easy and cheap to make is one of their strong-points.
I tried to make mine with a bit more joinery.
Can you guys give me some feedback on the sketchup file I included?

Ill have to check that out.
It’s unbelievably how a swedish chisel turn up in an old flemish toolchest 🙂

Sorry for the late answer ehisey, but the spacings indeed match the chisels.
I guess it can be a bit tricky to make such a mortise gauge but the
result would be very handy.

I really love the coasters. How did you make those?

The chest belonged to the uncle of the seller. The uncle was diagnosed with Schizophrenia shortly after the seller started working (seller is also retired now).
He now lives in an retirement home thinking he’s a boy of 15.
A bit of a sad story but its what I heared from the sellers.
Most planes are marked with the initials JS but I don’t know the name of the original owner.
There are indeed a lot of molding planes. But some of the more ornate moldings seem to
be without iron. Could those be remade?
The unknown planes will indeed be the half of a tongue and groove plane.

Some, if not most of it indeed had/has woodworm.
I will put the smaller items in the freezer for a night to kill it off and
the rest will be thrown away.
Right now I put it all under plastic so the bugs can’t spread

Could be a nice little project 🙂
Count me in!

Until now I only use the spear cutter because I thought to have read somewhere
it gave a smoother finish. This is incorrect?
Time to start using the other cutter then 🙂

That’s what I meant 🙂
Tnx for the help !

My concern is that after some more video’s the drop-down menu will become to long.
I like the current dashboard but maybe it can be enhanced with a quick access list?
