They Don't Make 'Em Like They Used To...

Hey folks, let's see your old reliable tools, the ones passed down to you.

This group is where you can brag about an old spokeshave grandpa taught you to use or an old sander found on the side of the road on trash night.

A lot of us have vintage tools we'd never trade, post 'em here. Tell us about them or see if we can figure out what it is...

This is the place to post repair tips and sources for parts.

Old's Cool! (Old school)

recently picked up some hand made planes from the 1820's for $40 AUD for all 3.  They feel so nice! Also a complete fret saw set from the 1940's with a dozen hair thin blades, a set of coping saw blades, one of those old automatic turning screw driver and a whole set of templates, many for violins. The seller also threw in a 3/4 size (unstrung) violin and case too! Bargain. All for $40!
