Plainly Better

Still in this day and age, you can find old tools for cheap at 2nd hand stores and get them working again.  I found this at a thrift store for $2.25, all rusted up.

A bit of work later and some sharpening, and it's looking pretty useful. This low-angle block plane has an adjustable mouth, something I've not worked with before, but from what I read, seems to be a big deal. Should be fun to do some work.  I love using old stuff.

Starting anti-fire prep

Well, we never really stop.  But, took a picture of today's raking below the yurt.  Every year I work to get a bit wider swath cleared....
