My dad who is a woodworker as well, sent me a batch of family air loom tools. These beauty’s date back to the early 1900’s. I was super stoked to get them and make a new shadow box for diplay. I spent Sunday in the shop making the shadow Box from wood I had lying in the shop. I actually did flat work and didn’t turn on the lathe, lol.
All the tools were made in the USA and are solid. I almost didn’t put the drill in there and used it, as the gearing is amazing. So smooth and efficient. They just don’t make them like this anymore. Well some companies are but this was the norm back in the good olé days is my point.
Thought I would share this the shadow box is nothing special, I think the tools steal the show. On display in the man cave. Enjoy.
All comments always welcome.
