This saw has lived through about 8 American presidencies and roughly 4 major wars, and its still sees service today judging by the modern Diablo blade perched on the spindle. Scientists have known for at least a century that the human hand has unique characteristics designed for gripping and manipulating objects, as opposed to the locomotion-designed hands of our closest ape relatives. Flickr user whiteforge has a great collection of forged and antique tools, as you may remember from previous TM posts. One other curiosity I found among the wreckage of my friend’s garage was this old Craftsman 18-inch belt sander.
The old man and I recently went out to a friend’s place to help her clear out her garage. And one last question: if other Toolmongers came across a similar diamond-mine-in-the-rough, what would you be most pleased to find in there?
Inspired by a cool find by Toolmonger reader whiteforge, I dug up a photo of this unusual curved wrench, courtesy of Ron Geeson of Made in Birmingham.

Charlie R { Conductive hook and loop tape was used extensively in the Space Shuttle program for temporarily installed protective covers on the SRB booster segments. Chris { Rumor has it harbor freight was forced to discontinue the machine for patent issues.
I walked into the local new and used store, (and again HERE) and did my usual scanning, when my eyes planted firmly on this rusty orange handle full of familiar holes.
And as always, the odd munch of fresh peas in the pod or a baby carrot was encouraged. Thank you so much about telling me about your Grandmother’s gardening tools and garden. I was sad the day I went to a yard sale and here was a lady selling her grandmother’s book that she had had as a child.
They also know that a price guide is just as important when selling their tools regardless of the venue. This is the book they rely on for guidance while searching through antique shops, flea markets and garage sales.
Tools covered in this book range from the later part of the 18th century to the mid 20th century. Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount. To sum up, hand size did prove to be a significant factor in how well different people could manipulate different forms of stone tools. This set of adjustable wrenches he posted caught my eye, since I’ve never seen any quite like them. Though I have to admit that I see some pretty big changes in the 40-or-so years between the first saw and the second — besides the fact that the price seems to have dropped significantly, at least in relative terms. Way in the back of it we found a giant tool chest of drawers and a few cabinets full of tools.
Opened back in 2006, it looks like this little metal building houses all sorts of old wrenches, blacksmith tools, household tools, and other sorts of neat stuff.
It was tough to track down, but evidently it comes from Snail Brand tools, a division of Smith Francis in Birmingham, England, who’ve been in business since 1934.
With six kids in my family we can’t all have the few prized possessions so I have bought some of the things I remember from my childhood. After all, the things I collect and use today will be memories for my Daughter and Grandchildren! Ah, seeing it brought instant memories of my childhood and my parents tending to our beautiful family garden.
I just noted that the tin was not draining well yesterday and forgot to go back to deal with it.

I know of family members that get rid of family treasures, and so when I see them I remind them of my love and passion of gathering items or pictures of the gone loved ones.

Tool price guides generally include values for tools in various conditions ranging from excellent to poor.

What I find interesting is how little the basic technology of the table saw has changed in 80 years — or how advanced it was for its time. Most of it was crap and we didn’t get to go through everything that night, but in the fading light of evening what we did manage to find made us very excited. According to Noel’s photo captions, wrenches, saws, levels, planes, valve tools, coffee grinders, grease guns, screwdrivers, jacks, and a kerosene blowtorch were among the collection. The Fordson was the first mass-produced tractor that small farmers and ordinary people could afford, and was in production until 1991 when the company sold its tractor division to Fiat. While these vintage spanners are primarily in circulation overseas, a recent eBay auction (now closed) shows you can still get them for around ?18, or about $30. Like my vintage Underwood typewriter (I found at a yard sale for only $5) that I remember my father plunking away at with two fingers or the concertina my husband bought me when I was sad my older brother was awarded that prized possession.
Love that feeling of finding just what I was looking for, even if I didn’t know I was looking for it! Kean's book are determined by factoring in sales of live and internet auctions, private sales and general market trends. It seems impersonal, but when we had a final sale of my Mom’s stuff, it was pretty heartwarming how her things touched others. With more than 12,000 prices, tools of all kinds, from flea market finds to rare tools, are included. I did manage to acquire one of my mother’s dolls as well as her wedding cake topper so I am happy. Yes acquiring those wonderful items that bring back memories of our childhoods is so wonderful. And add to it that I am now 60 years young, most of those items “are” antiques!
