4.jpgDividers stamped H & R ROKER(?) CAST STEEL99 viewsThese dividers were in a box of old tools from my Mother's family's farm in Virginia. Among the other tools were late 18th and early 19th century moulding planes marked H.O.A. Henry Osborne Ambrose was one of my Great great grandfathers and was a carpenter (?) in and around Petersburg, VA.Sgt42RHR

Henry_Ambrose_Plane_signed_W_E_T_.JPGUnknown maker carved W.E.T. intials from Brown-Ambrose farm189 viewsThe blade was rusted into the plane, had about 1/32 of rust overall the blade; fortunately it was not pitted underneath the crud. Sharpened it to 8000 grit and it cut perfect molding. While the maker's mark on this plane is too faint to be read, the other plane carved with W.E.T.'s initials was made by Robert Eastburn who made planes in Brunswick, NJ 1802-1826.Sgt42RHR
HOA___WET_molding_planes_from_Henry_Ambrose.JPGMolding Planes from the Ambrose-Brown farm130 viewsThe molding plane on the top with W.E.T. i)nitials carved does not have a readable maker's mark. The bottom beading plane with HOA initials carved carries the makers mark of John Cogdell (London 1750-1765), and belonged to Henry Osborne Ambrose my GGGrandfather (1799 - 1875), a carpenter who lived in Petersburg, VA and Sussex County, Virginia. I was able to sharpen blades on both planes and they work perfectly!Sgt42RHR

rockhammer1.jpgRock hammer with half-broken handle -- center of picture136 viewsBrought this hammer home when I cleaned out the family farm in 2004. Wasn't usable even if I had a rock to chip as the handle was half-broken through just below the head. An old hammer in the family, needing some care. Since I had bought a nice new finishing hammer earlier in the day, I figured it was a good time to put that elm branch in the garage to use and rehandle this one too so that my hammers were all up to snuff. Besides, it was a bit stiffling outside .... new handle is shaped and nearly readyCharlie Driggs
