Hi everyone, i have always been interest in building thing (being an engineer and all) so finally getting into woodworking, really excited as my father in law is sending me his entire beaver tool collection, all i know is that they are heavy and old.

Will probably need assistance in cleaning them up, so will pos pictures when they get here.

Thanks guys. been lurking around for awhile, and love the information.

I will definately post pictures once I get them in the garage workshop.

really anxious to get my hands on these and see how they were built… as you said, true workhorses. The machines should be in great shape as my father in law is meticulous, and really took great care of them, heck he still has all the original manuals…

Going to see them this weekend… Will post what machines he has as well as model numbers…
