    Old Tools took a hit

    I heard about a place that is full of old tools, lots of nice ones. Planning on making a trip that way next week to see what I can find.

    It was even on the news this morning. They don't know if it was a tornado or what last night, but the building was destroyed. Contents destroyed.

    Moral of the story, run don't walk, when you hear about old tools.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    Lots of old buildings in your area. I believe around Madison there should be several treasure troves of antiques, including tools.

    Probably destroyed by all the others that also heard about the tools, in a rush to beat you there.
