Thread: Brought back a few tools from my trip to Baltimore last week!

  1. #1

    Brought back a few tools from my trip to Baltimore last week!

    Well My brother decided to go thru some of his tools that were his and that he inherited from my father when he died back in 2000. He has decided that he isn't going to be building things as much as he use to and decided to pass some on down to me since I'm still actively building things.

    First up a few hand planes. The block plane is a Craftsman knuckle cap 3732 which is identical to a Stanley 65 low angle block plane.

    Then here is a Sargent 407 and a Mohawk Shelburne 900? bench planes with extra blades.

    Next is a Made in the USA Stanley 78 with the fence and the nicker. I have to ask my brother if he has the depth stop since it's missing.

    I also have a nice selection of Yankee screwdrivers that all work perfectly and a Stanley push drill that still works perfectly.

    And a few assorted wooden handle screw drivers that fit my hand perfectly and just feel natural to hold along with a brass hammer that I think is home made.

    Nice haul Alan. I have never seen an aluminum folding steel rule. I find it interesting how those ballpene hammers of that era all seem to have "skinny" handles. My Dad had one too and when i had the chance i left it behind because of it.

    That haul is worth a pretty penny in more ways than one.

    The claw hammer heads look like a hammer I got from my dad. It was my favorite hammer when I was a kid. I still use it quite a bit; it hangs on the outside of a cabinet where it is handy to get to.

    Oh yes, it still has the original handle. How about that; it survived my childhood intact.

    Enjoy your toys,

    Neat stuff Alan. That may be the biggest collection of Yankee screwdrivers I've seen in a long while and those other screwdrivers are a definite set of winners as well!

    The skinny handle isn't necessarily a bad thing, the skinny handle has more flex and bounce than a thick one which makes it easier to use for things that want a lot of light repeated blows (like say peening over a rivet or a piece of metal) which are often tasks that a ball-peen hammer is in fact used for

    Personally I think most of the modern ones are to thick (but now I have a lathe so probably wouldn't buy one anyway when you can make one in 15 minutes.. takes way longer than that to get to the store and back). I was thinking how nice those ones looked compared to what you see in the store nowadays

    Those are some great tools. I have a bevel gauge that's a spitting image of yours. It belonged to my maternal grandfather.

    If it was from your childhood, I'm assuming that it has a stone handle. Or had they already invented wood by then?
