So there I was, rooting about on the
Bay, when I thought I'd see if there were any cheap cabinet scrapers
to be had. I'd been doing some scraping with a card scraper
and my fingers and wrist were getting a little pooped (tired, J.).
I was thinking something along the
lines of a Stanley 80 or cheap knockoff that I could soup up.
Low and behold, what should I spy butt a scraper with holes in the
handles, sort of configured like the afore mentioned #80.
It wasn't getting any attention, so I
posted the minimum bid, like 6.50. Well, I won (?) the auction
and waited for my prize to arrive. This guy was a slowww
shipper, but the tool arrived after a couple of weeks.
The tool turned out to be a cast iron
spokeshave! No markings of any sort anywhere on it, either.
I spotted one in the spokeshave department just like it with Dunlop
on the lever cap screw. So I sharpened it up and it doesn't
work half bad, especially considering the price.
Only now I STILL need a cabinet
