Vern Burke, SwiftWater Edge Tool Works
It’s creeping up on us!
Do you know someone who would appreciate a nice set of quality tools for Christmas? Before you head off to the big box stores to get the latest shiny junk made in China, take a look at our quality restored vintage “made in USA” tools (I’ll be featuring one or two great tools from inventory every day until Christmas!). Hand saws, crosscut saws, axes, classic woodworking tools, you don’t see these in Walmart!
Today, I have a Keen Kutter KK6 plane (similar to Stanley Bailey #6).
This is a pre-WWII E.C. Simmons Keen Kutter KK6 fore plane, similar in size to a Stanley Bailey No. 6 fore plane, used for jointing or flattening boards or planks. This plane has approximately 80% of it’s original body finish, 100% of the finish on the absolutely gorgeous tote and knob, and an original Keen Kutter marked iron that is more than 3x as thick as a Stanley iron! All in all, just a super plane! This plane has been thoroughly cleaned and well sharpened so it’s ready to go to work! $65.
