You never know what you might find. There are lots of things that are useful across multiple hobbies. I picked up just a few things.
|A few estate sale items|
|Starrett #607R and Lufkin #2207R|
I love this next item - it reminds me of an old metal pencil sharpener that we had in my house when I was a kid. It's by "Boston". I already have a pencil sharpener, but it's made of plastic and I can see the Boston will become the user right away. It even had two of the three screws needed to attach it to a wall inside the shavings drum.

|Called the "Scanner", the pouch had the name "Triplett" on it|
Finally, there was the saw seen in the first picture. It's a model K-1 12" backsaw made by Disston for Keystone and has a "Warranted Superior" medallion. It's not old enough to have an etching on the plate, but you can see some of the inked design. I can see it better in person than in my pictures show.
|The printed "etch" (there's got to be a more correct term for this)|
|In this pic, you can see better the "Keystone" lettering and the "K-1" inside the keystone shape|
My best guess is this saw is from the 60's or 70's.
I'll give more info on this saw when I post about it's future rehab. For a better picture of the "etch", you can see what I think is the same saw on Lumberjocks here.
