June Rust Hunt finds...
#5
  
were a bit ....skimpy....bought three "Channel-lock" type pliers...$3 total...

Picked a chisel for $2... Rolleyes 
   
1-1/2" Defiance by Stanley....and a brace, for $4 Rolleyes 
   
Stanley No. 945, 8"    have since rehabbed the brace up 
   
Looks about like my 10" Stanley.....rehabbed the chisel mainly to get rid of the mushroom and re-handle it.. Cool 
   
Still needs the edge sharpened....has a back bevel, and a reverse camber to the edge..
   
Might take a while, and a gallon of water beside the grinder...

Hit & Miss Rust Hunt.... Rolleyes
Show me a picture, I'll build a project from that

Ok, that 1-1/2" wide chisel has been fully rehabbed..
   
Sharpening tools.   Edge has been ground straight, and that dumb looking back bevel removed...
   
Cleaned up nicely.. Cool 
   
Stamp on the socket says it is a Defiance by Stanley   Made in USA.

Maybe from the 1930s era...

Nice haul!  I'm a big fan of wider chisels for pairing and trimming jobs.

Still June, so..one more find...it was THAT skimpy of a day... No 
   

Logo says it is a Sargent 408.....spent $8 on it...had to supply the front knob and bolt....just the threaded post was left..
 Cleaned it up.. Winkgrin  
   
Almost everything says it is a type 2...except.. Uhoh  
   
A frog from an Ohio No.0-3 plane?   Rear handle is Rosewood.   Logo on the iron is the first one used by Sargent.   Under the lever cap?
   
Dot went away after 1909.  Washers on the frog bolts had rusted to the bolts.   Been a long time since those were moved.  Base? 
   
Still, for just $8, I may just sharpen it up, and put it to work....It'll give the Millers Falls No.8 a rest...
