Well, A great Uncle of mine passed away…. Only saw him about 8 times…..:(
So, I got to inherit some of his stuff.

a Brand new Black and Decker workmate plus! Its sturdy as a 10 ton workbench.

2 Pipe Clamps

A stanley#4 (Bailey), Hardly any rust, as it never touched the floor.
Pretty old it seems, wooden handles, it seems he had it for like 50-75 years.
And a whole bunch of stuff I never bothered to take pictures of.
Thanks for looking.
This post is dedicated to my great Uncle.

Sorry for your lose, Alex.

Now every time you use one of your inherited tools, you will be reminded of your great uncle. Make him proud & honor him by making something…...

Have your say...
