This is Ethel, the project that got me my wood shop and tools … the old guy holding himself up on Ethel is me. This appeared in Sears craftsman Club flyer last July. They posted it because the majority of large power tools in my shop are vintage Craftsman. My wood lathe, metal lathe and drill press are 1940’s vintage Craftsman/Dunlap. Still solid as a rock and working great.
The second pic is what Ethel looks like opened up at the car shows. The tools boxes contain antique and period tools that I display during the shows. It’s great all the attention the tools get too.
The third pic is how Ethel started. The inital draw was the complete truck I saw inthe front yard that day. This chassis was a bonus that the seller offered me when i told him I was going to try to restore the truck in stead of street rodding it. It turned out the chassis was in better shape then the complete truck inthe front yard.
