    I have all of my dads old tools, all of which have his name stamped into them. Unfortunately all of his work mates also stamped their names into his tools as well. I have no idea as to the manufacturer of most of the tools but I know the names of everybody he worked with in the 1940’s and 50’s.
    As for pot and piercings, well pot is what I brew tea in and the only body piercings I have are as a result of fire side whittling. So far I havent sold any tools for tea pots or plasters so my conscience is clear.

    Haha that last comment was a bit close to home. My grandpa was a massive woodworker, and when he died all of his tools were sold or thrown out because no one wanted them. I was too young and wasn’t into woodworking yet, but apparently I could have had it all if I put my hand up (not just hand tools; it was full of machinery too).

    The patina on the old planes is dirt, never heard of linseed oil going rancid when applied to planes that are in use. The oil helps to stop the wood from moving, shrinking, cracking etc. I use BLO on all my tools, just recoated all my hammer handles, frame saws etc.Just give the old planes a clean, a new coat of oil, put them back to use. Be careful buying planes with cracks or where the wood has gone soft, there are lots of old planes to buy, pick the good ones. A nice simple cleaning video search for How to restore Wooden Planes.

    I do really like your videos, but i especially like your amusing asides and observations on life. This one made me laugh.
    At least my dad’s tools will not get chucked, I will take them and treasure every item in my workshop.

    "When he died, his ungrateful kids sold his tools to buy pot and get something pierced. Like your kids will do when you’re gone."
    Haven’t laughed like that in a while. So hilarious, and (probably) so true.
