« Part 7: Grandfathers' Tools Part 8 of Favorite Old Tool(s) series no next part

All maternal grandfather’s, except the rosewood square which belonged to paternal grandfather

A suggestion – if you inherit old tools and also enjoy picking up old tools at flea markets, etc. – either keep your family tools strictly separated or mark them with a sticker or make and keep an inventory list. You think you will remember which ones are “family,” but as you age . . . I’m very happy I wrote out an inventory list when these came into my possession. I needed it to separate g-fathers’ tools for this post!

Nice set of tools. Hope you include them in the rotation of tools you use.

Unfortunately I don’t have enough family tools to ever forget. I use them every chance I get.

I’ve got none, so I guess I have to create some for future generations.
