I was lucky enough to purchase a tool chest recently that was so packed full of antique tools I was literally drooling when I saw it. I got about 10 hand saws, 3 hand planes, 2 hand screw drills, a massive set of auger bits, 5 or so carpenters squares, marking tools, levels, measurement devices, sharpening stones, chisels wrenches, screw drivers, etc. etc. It was endless. Some were even still in their original boxes. That said, pretty much all were in real rough shape and need complete restoration. I picked a Disston saw and put together my first electrolysis tank to bring it back to life. See before and after pictures. Not sure if the pictures will come through but I can even make out the etch on this bad boy. I was able to score all these tools for $100 too so the wife is more than pleased that I’ll be busy for so long for so little money…or so she thinks. I know a lot of collectors would scoff at restoring some of these tools and yes I know I should be checking their value and such but…I believe tools were meant to be used for work and anything else is almost ungodly. That is just my opinion though and I could certainly be wrong. I plan to pass all of these down to my kids some day so I don’t mind putting them back in working order before handing them down. I love old tools made in the USA. Back when our country made things instead of outsourcing them. I like to think about how these kinds of tools built America. Anyway, more to come, slowly but surely.
