Yo whats up everybody so we are closing one of our garages and we are expanding Viennas construction co and a lot of the tools in the garage we are closing are very old and we are buying new equitpment so my dad was like no one else will take this crap so you can have it. So im getting a delta rockwell 14 in band saw delta unisaw delta rockwell 8 in jointer and a big ass oil barrel with a motor on top to use as a dust collector and like some old flex hose. No most of these tools are at least 25 years old that we brought down from New York. Now im not sure about hand tools because we havent finished cleaning up the garage yet but I dont know when I will get all the tools because we might bring some down later but the band saw will probably be the first and my next video will probably be a band saw setup/ tune up episode.

Don’t let those “old tools” go! I have literally replaced a lot of my main stationary “new tools” with “old tools” which are Rockwell and Delta and some old Grizzly stuff. Those tools are rock solid. Don’t think I am kidding either. Here’s an example. My Ridgid planer – 73 lbs. My Grizzly planer – 990 lbs. Ridgid table saw – 300 lbs. My old 1950’s Delta Unisaw – couldn’t imagine. This extra weight lends itself magnificantly to stability and accuracy. I just mounted a new 3 hp motor onto this Delta Unisaw and I am making my own fence system for it and I can’t wait to use it. Enjoy the old tools, they are worth every penny!

I agree with ToddE…..........the older and heavier the better.

old and heavy is not a bad thing when it comes to tools.. not the best thing if shopping for a wife..but free tools are always good
