Don't know about you folks but I dearly love to stroll through the swap meet and find some old rusty treasure to restore.
I've been wanting one of these old Fray braces for ages and just couldn't justify the $75 to $100 folks asked for them on eBay or other vintage sale sites..... I gave $4 for this one. And this Stanley miter box #60 is a real PRIZE I got for $5. The saw is an old HandyMan 14" (too short for the box) backsaw but it cleaned up nicely and is sharp enough for soft woods now...I'll make it much sharper as soon as I have a moment.

I like collecting old tools. recently I picked up a "vintage" wooden plane and a wood mallet. I go to do a bit more shoping before i return to the states. I also look at old bier steins . Im getting quite a collection of them now

Your link will not work on my computer.
It ask me to create an account.

Sorry, Monte. This is a new iMac and everything goes to iCloud. I haven't learned how to share on this thing but I will rectify this somehow. Try using the Google Photo link I added to the post.
Thanks for letting me know.
