    Some Classic Tools

    I was looking through my Grandmother's garage, when I found several boxes with tools. I talked to my Dad, and he said I could take what I wanted.

    So here are my latest additions. I'm not to familiar with most of these, so anything that you might know or want to share about them would be appreciated.

    Due to the limit on the number of pictures that can be posted, I'm adding this on.

    You should spend more time in Grama's garage

    I think you have some nice finds there, with some elbow grease and mabye a new part or two, you will have a bunch of great tools.

    Do you know if they were your Grandad's ?

    That would be especially sweet.

    Cheers!

    Stu,

    They were my Grandfather's tools.

    He wasn't really in to woodworking, so I'm thinking that someone may have given some of them to him, way back. I know that he bought the Bit from Sears, as it was still in a paper bag labled from Sears.

    Sean, that is one terrific find, you lucky dog, you.

    I would clean them up and put them on display. BTW, Highland woodworking has replacement totes and knobs.

    Okay, that's it, you get a big You Suck comment

    Actually you did the opposite of me. My grandmother said there was a big trunk filled with old handplanes that I could have. I had to wait 4 months in order to be sure no snakes were around (I hate snakes). Anyway, when I opened up the trunk I found nil, naddah, noth, zilch. What a let down. Thank goodness Liberty Tool is just around the corner!!
    I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"

    I'll be heading over to Grandma's house tomorrow for dinner.

    If I'm lucky, I get a chance to duck into the Garage for a few minutes and dig around again!


    UPDATE:

    Well, I did get a brief moment to dig around... No new finds, but there are still some boxes that I haven't gotten to yet. So who knows what I might find!

    Yes Sean

    You might find a nice, big, bunch of flowers for your grandmum.


    Incidently that is the greatest avatar of you and your son, a pair of terrific smiles, bless you both.
