Just picked up a new find at a car boot sale. One of a sorry lot that was left after the early birds got there.
Ill post some pics this afternoon but it's a Thiers Issard 55 frameback. It's seen some use so the blade (which was originally 7/8 down to 6/8) is now about 6/8 to 5/8 at the toe. Doesn't look too badly pitted after the initial de-scale and wire brush with the dremel so hopefully I'll make a shaver of it! Cost was €3.50 so about 4 of your US bucks! Can only imagine what other straights the old dear had already shifted, she said that she had a load at the beginning of the morning. Well I'll get on the wet and dry now and see what we can make her look like!
And I know, no pictures, it didn't happen!
