Looked a little more and found what looks to me like a nice old router (craftsman heavy duty) that the paperwork said cost $35 then, it’s boxtop is missing a few flaps, a very large drill that says it’s a Wizard by western auto supply that was $47.50. That is the first of those I’ve run across, are they any good? My husband told me it’s a 1/2” arm breaker. I thought besides being heavy, that it was cute with that aluminum handle you could attach to it just to hang on to. A Weller soldering gun that was $6.95. And the cutest little Craftsman screwdriver that’s cordless! That’s one that thrills me, it’s nothing like the ones now that are heavy and bulky with the battery packs etc. This one, even with the nerve damage in my hand, I can hold, nice pistol grip.
I also found a bunch more files, these are a lot smaller than the ones I have in the picture and with different names and shapes, the large ones in the pic were Grobet, Nicholson, Johnson. These are K&F, Simonds, Diamond Black, guessing those are the diamond shaped ones, they say stuff like nucut, slim taper, flat smooth. Is there a difference between what they are used for? I also know now that those orange file handles are Disston No1, names aren’t worn off of these.

William….if you know anyone looking for a scroll saw send them my way.

Ron…I would gladly package things together, but I didn’t receive this stuff together. An example being the things I think called mitre gauges for the tops of some of the equipment were mostly in boxes by themselves, so I don’t know which ones they actually went with.

dhazelton & Ian…the time frame of dismantling the building is up to me, I want to try and salvage some of the wood and stone in it, not really the log section I don’t think all the old logs are in that great of shape. But inside, I think the old bead board on the 3rd level is gorgeous, and all the long/wide rough cut boards that make the walls. Don’t know what I would do with it, but I refuse to let my husband take the loader and push it over and bury it in a field! I want to put up a building between the two chimneys and keep the root cellar. I met an 88 year old man that came by after we bought this place years ago and gave us some history on the property and his grandparents that were the original owners/builders. Do you think there is any interest in old wood?
