OK, so my husband and I spent a bunch of time Monday cleaning up his old tools...as well as a metal box and some stuff my son got. The "Antique tool" site said to use Turtle Wax, so we did. Found out the large Plane was made between 1886-1888. Also, the old thermometer got "de-spider nested" (yuck), cleaned and hung up outside. I saw similar ones on EBay for $50-99. Mine was free!
I also made room on my display shelf for my husband's stuff. Oh...and I already sold the Candy Dish!
