I’m old, my handplanes are older, but my power tools are mostly new. My first plane was a Stanley 220 that belonged to my Grandfather. I also have an American made no name block plane that I gave to my Dad when I was 11 or 12.

I have rehabbed and/or parted out a few older saws…the design technology isn’t as elegant as modern tools (ie: fence, dust collection, switch type/design, etc.), but the robustness, quality of the metals, and maching is generally much better on the older tools.
