    I picked up this old clamp a while ago, I couldn't let it go, just sitting in a box of junk at a salvage yard.

    I now have 2 of this type of air compressor, this one is a Montgomery Ward Diaphragm Air Compressor 1/3 hp and I have another that the compressor unit looks the same on but it has wheels and a handle so a person can roll it around. I don't know how old they are but they look pretty ancient to me.

  10. Anyone that hangs out on the HAMB that also is a member over @ Garage Journal forums is aware of the Craftsman Block grinder thread will likely recognize my prized vintage bench grinder thought to be from the late 50's, in original condition, in the original box :)

  12. Most were my grandfathers. Some older than others but I love them. Still use some if them on occasion. IMG_20180101_161551.jpg

    Got a nice pipe wrench when I was on a business trip in St Petersburg. Saw it at some flea market, as I recall, it was called Udelnaya. First it seemed to me that some sellers set random prices, but then I googled and read in this article that some of them really don't know the price of what they're selling. Funny. So if someone's in Russia, keep it in mind.

Back when things like shop classes still mattered in this country my brother in law’s class built a single seat airplane at Tilden in the ‘50’s.

    I have so many old tools I wouldn't know where to start. From chisels, hand planes, saws, drills, timberframing, log building, axes and even a couple vintage chainsaws. I have a treadle lathe/scroll saw, this is just woodworking related...LOL that's not even starting on metalworking tools.

    There's a lot of slippery slopes with old tools...I frickin' love 'em...:rolleyes:

    I would say some of the saws I own are some of the oldest tools...early 1800s to mid 1800s...They aren't worth as much as you would think, but they are still really cool tools to acquire. I will add one here...ok, a bonus because they're thumbnails...:D

    The other thing I like to "acquire" are vintage snap-on, mac and other tools to work on cars...don't have any pics however...

    An old axe head I found in my back yard when cleaning an old junk pile. After cleaning it up some I discovered it was an old Winchester, I’m gonna get a nice handle for it and use it to split firewood.

    The question remains- if you change the head and the handle, is it still grandpa's axe?

  20. A friend has this.....


    It is a hub borer, used to bore a wood spoke wheel on horse drawn, Conestoga wagons. The wood wheels were made without a taper because axles of various manufacturers used different tapers, so this is adjustable...

    They talk about the ‘good ol days’... I think these are them!

    Harter Engineering Works engine boring bar from 1924. I have been unable to find any other information on this or the company out of Seattle that made it.

    SouthBend 10K lathe with taper attachment, milling fixture and a 32 piece set of 6K collets is the only vintage powered tool I use. One day I want to display all the vintage hand tools I have squirreled DSC04502.JPG away over the years. They don't get used but I kept them.
