    Today was a decent day searching for treasures

    Picked up a OLD OLD OLD bandsaw for $30

    Got a pin spanner and this odd wrench for $2. I think its some kind of firefighter wrench as they had a lot of that kind of stuff. I wanted the spanner.

    Also found a Skil belt sander for $6. I already broke the belt so I’ll have to be looking for a new one.

    Kelty Yukon Reg. 3200 External frame pack. $3

    S.A.E. Fine & course tap & die set, mostly there, Buffalo brand from the box label. Original cost was $89 many years ago. – $3

    Busy day, @dustincoc 🙂
    Is that a four wheel bandsaw? Motor on the hidden side or is it a belt drive from below? Nice deep throat for the overall size of the machine.

    I see my questions are answered in your other thread. I’d never heard of a 4 wheel bandsaw but the perspective of the picture above made me think it had to be.

    Sounds like a pretty good day at garage sales. How much trouble do you usually have with getting them running again?

    Not much trouble at all. This thing has bronze bushings so its pretty simple to replace the bearings and they are readily available at a local store. The belt drive units are especially simple. All that they care about it the belt is turning and they work. A lot of the Amish take small engines and hook them to tablesaws to power them.

    guy down the street was selling a ton of nice tools at his garage sale yesterday but nothing I really NEEDED for the prices he was asking.

    Not even out looking, I was heading home from Lowes and stumbled upon a sale.

    A analog multimeter for $2 and a power tester for $5.

    Even if I had no use for them I would’ve bought for that price.

    That 5-sided wrench can be used to open fire hydrants. Most hydrants have a pentagonal bolt to open or close because they’d get tampered with way too often if the traditional six-sided or square head bolts were used. Interesting find.

    nice find frank – I like to go to garage and yard sales too.
    but I didn’t find anything lately.

    thats pretty cool, didn’t know they used a special wrench bit. I wonder if it belonged to an old city worker or firefighter.

    Good find, Frank. I hit a few while I was out Sat morning but nothing at all!

    Some days are like that.

    Duct tape can't fix stupid, but it muffles the sound.

    What you have there is a cobblers hammer …

    Carpenter and Joiner

    Joiner ... a person who constructs the wooden components of a building, such as stairs, doors, and door and window frames.

    Carpenter ... cutting, shaping and installation of building materials during the construction of buildings, ships, timber bridges, concrete formwork.

    1970 ... to present.

    Yeah the curved end is for getting inside the shoe to pound down the leather.

    What is the power tester used for?

    @theamcguy,
    Bill, used for testing anything that operates on DC power. It can feed a specified voltage to do testing. Good for bench testing some electronic components of cars.
