Topic tags/keywords: hand tools

I was just kind of playing around online this evening and I came across this video on the American Woodworker magazine website. Those of you that enjoy old/hand tools better be careful when you watch this. I wouldn’t want you to be electrocuted because you drooled on your computer. It certainly makes me want to make a trip to Minnesota.

Doc, you made my day with this one. I loved the video and will watch it every now and then to remind me of all of the wonderful tools that are out there that I will never own. I have added this to my favorites list. Thanks for posting this.

Now thats my kind of Candy Store!!
Thanks, I now have a new reason for wanting to go to the family reunion on the wifes side next summer. We are having to go farther into northern Wisconsin for this trip and its right on our way to and from. I will sure have to remember to take the camera with me when I go in. I might even have to have the wife handcuff my hands behind my back to keep from touching such works of art. LOL
I sure liked the Mortising Machine would love to have it in my shop. The countersink bit was cool also, I’m going to have to watch this video a couple more times as theres so much to see at one time.
Thanks again for the great video.

Good find. Had me thinking that it is funny how things change. A decade ago I’d have had no interest in those old tools…. now I am drawn to them and watched every second of the video, just to see more.
