After doing a little reserch online I found that its most likely a repo knockoff. I prob. picked it up at the scrapyard for 25cents a pound so didn't lose much, oh well.

I'll have to ask a friend about that.
I'm not sure if that one is ok or only a decoration piece.

Thanks Jim, the more I look at it the more it looks like junk. The eye has squared corners and the poll side of the eye is flat not round like they ought to be. Thanks again.

Cast steel is ok in an axe. Cast iron is not.

10-4 Jim cast iron is no good for anything that recives much impact, cast steel on the other hand ain't terrible but I perfer forged(hand forged) being a bladesmith. :D
The way its rusted makes me very suspect that is cast iron and not steel at all.

Having recently seen the sheath that Jim had on his chisel at The Timber Frame Workshop, I ordered several from him before he left.  They arrived  today, and boy are they nice.
 

 

Thanks Jim

It looks like you have a ton of nice framing chisels, Jim. If I had a spare $1,500, I'd clean you out. :D

Tom is going to be working on his retirement home this spring. This stock maybe all I'll have for the summer.

Better get yours now.....

Jim, this is my first post here so please forgive any protocol-breaking behavior!

I'm interested in buying a boring machine from you but would like to ask some detailed questions before doing so. Should I email you or shall we discuss here?

Thank you!

Hey Jim,

I've been looking for a good draw knife to begin my debarking adventures. Right now I have a vintage 8 incher that is not very deep. I keep seeing people with "deep" and heavy looking draw knifes. I think I need one of those. Does one of those fit the bill? Thanks

Most of the draw knifes we sell people use to debark wane on timbers. The are around 8 to 10" long.
I'm not sure if this is what is best for what you're debarking or not. It's up to you.

Hi Jim. I like the idea of the flat timber framer's layout tape measure with the 10" burn. Is the tape available in metric, or perhaps decimal inches (1/20" as per Steve Chappell's tape)?  Cheers.
