  1. Hi Wingless, I'm sorry I missed your reply, again thanks for your time! Sir do you know of any guys on this forum that might let me watch or help or gofer for them or even just let me pick their brains? As much as you are on here, I thought you might know where at least some of these guys are from! Thanks for your time and help!

  3. Hi Wingless! I can't express my appreciation! Sir, you are a blessing! I do promise I won't continue to pester! I wish there was some way to express what I'm feeling!
  4. Thanks Wingless, I'll cut down on the pestering, I promise! Again Thank-you! I am going to start with a plunge router and bits. I am on Social Security, so I am on a limited budget! I plan to get a miter saw second. For now I will limit my self to the tying stations so I can increase my income some! Do you have favorites for tools or are they pretty much the same. I was going to get the best from Harbor Freight to start. Some say they are OK, some not. What wood species wood be best for these type projects WOW! Wingless, you are AMAZING! Thank-you so much! I'm leaving you alone, no more! But your still amazing!

  10. I inherited 2 chest of antique from my uncle. He took great care of them but they have been in the chests over 10 years. Some have light rust, there are several hand saws and planes on many sizes. Also several braces with numerous buts. How do I get rid of light rust and very minor pitting? Should I keep light oil on them? Thanks for your time! Kind Regards, Charlie47
  11. Hi folks, please bare with me. I'm brand new to woodworking, so I may ask a stupid question, at least to you. I've done a some of working on guns, building fly rods and tied a lot of flies. I'm a retired VP in a large multi state insurance brokerage. Several years ago I inherited two large tools chests of woodworking hand tools. Mt uncle was a carpentry forman for DuPont. He would be over a 100 now, so the tools are quite old. I want to build fly tying workstations to sell. I saw there was quite a bit of interest in antique tools on a woodworking forum. So I was going to sell them to buy what I needed like a router and bits and maybe a miter saw. However, a great guy there posted a photo of a tying station made with hand tools. He convinced me not to sell the tools but use them. So now I just want to learn more! Have an awesome week! Thanks for your time! Kind Regards, Charlie47
