I’ve been looking at antique tools online this morning and started wondering, How many of us have antique tools that are still being used on at least a somewhat regular basis. I love antique tools and love how they not only can take us back to a time when just about everything was done by hand and when things were made to last longer than we would. So lets see those antique hand tools and maybe a few manually powered power tools. Here’s some of mine. I’m not sure what brand they are though.

Very nice collection Don. What brand are they or are they a mix of brands?

Mostly stanleys, a few bedrocks, a few Millers Falls, and some others as well. I’ll often buy a plane just because I never heard of it if it looks like its built well. I’ve got a few older saws, and a pile to be restored.

Go to the “handplanes of your dreams” thread. There’s pages and pages of all kinds of different handtools for your viewing pleasure!

Al, what a shameless plug for your thread… :)

I was going to put a photo of myself up, an antique that gets used on a regular basis…

Shameless, maybe;) But there sure are a lot of antique tools there!

Don’s thread on saws is the cat’s pajamas.
Brit’s on braces is the stuff of legend.

I’m a big fan of poking. Prodding is pretty nice too ;)

Landog, that’s fantastic! Definitely centerfold material.
Wayne, who’s that second from the right?

Here’s a few antiques I got off our farm a few years back. There are some that my wife’s great grand father, grandfather, and her dad used. When the farm sold, I thought it would be neat to decor my shop with, so here they are.
