    First item is at tool for recutting threads which have been damaged. Numbers stamped on it denote the number of threads per inch.

  6. Got a few pieces yesterday at the flea market for 50 cents apiece. A pair of JMC Co. blasting cap pliers;a couple of vintage Stanley utility knives(look the same but have subtle differences in the logos);a nice Snap-On screwdriver;a flexible shaft screwdriver(likely for adjusting idle mixture screws)and an X-Acto hand drill which I could have used the day before.

    One of the few tools I own but do not know exactly how it was used. Twin blades that spread apart on a machined way and can be set at specific spacing. The other end looks like it could have had a handle, like a wood lathe chisel. I'm guessing it is for making a specific profile on a wood lathe.

  8. It is great you still have that Tony. I have a few of my grandfather's tools.
    However it seems a little at odds sitting on a Toshiba lap and in front of a Samsung screen.

    Here is a 1942, 1953 sheet metal pattern book I got from a retiring engineer here at work. He started out in the Merchant Marine and became a HVAC PE for buildings.

  11. I recently bought a Black and Decker NWA valve grinder like this, but mine is missing the valve stem grinding support on the right side. Would it be possible for you to get some detail pictures and a few measurements? If you could do so, and send them to me as a private message, I would greatly appreciate it. Would like to try to reproduce that part.

    I was looking at a pile of tools at a swap meet. Any tool on the blanket was $1. A guy picked up a strange looking tool and the seller said it was for cleaning the grooves for piston rings. When the guy passed on it I picked it up for a buck. HAMB-piston-ring-tool.jpg

    I can't resist these Ford wrenches when I can get them cheap, usually $3 or less. Have a dozen or more, about 6 or so different variations.

    I just cleaned out an old garage and there were two bell shapped tools on attachment 9. What were they used for? Also in the bunch was the oldest set of finger pick up I have ever seen. Will try and post picture.

    Here's a couple of more oldies I found while cleaning out my barn. Top one is a 7/8" & 1" engineer's wrench and the bottom one is an articulated grease gun spout for the real early twist-on grease fittings.

    How about Yankee screwdrivers?
    Lots of work!
