    We all like tools to some degree, Right?
    What have you held onto, collected, stored away.

    I love the older aluminum, solid steel, well built tools. Most of the ones I have were inherited from my dad.

    Searched but could not find a thread with vintage, antique tools.[/s]

    This one was given to me by my 76 year old neighbour who had no use for it. He told me that when he was 10, he remembered his dad using it.

    I’m told by members of Vintage Machinery that it is turn of the century, and the first on their list by the manufacturer.

    Another neighbour who was selling his dad’s home had no use for this 4″ planer. Solid as a rock.

    Over 30 yrs ago my dad won a circular saw in a draw and figured he had no use for this one, gave it to me. I turn to this one every so often, as it’s the best Electric Hand Saw I have. It is better than my $30 plastic skill saw.

    Those are some nice looking relics. What do they weigh compared to current stuff?

    Its amazing how some of these old tools outlast new tools by 20 or 30 years if not longer .

    Those are some really great looking old tools. They definitely don’t make them nearly as solid as they used to. I like the belt sander, it has a cool look to it with how the motor sits on the top.

    Them are some awesome old tools, I could use the arbor press when fixing my old woodworking machinery.

    It’s always cool to see old tools. Whats scary is when you remember owning them

    I think this thread is targeted at me. A small selection of my collection.

    I like the older table saws, I had a nice Delta one that I had to get rid off because I did not have the room.

    Nice set of vice grips, these days you cant get a good one in any of the stores.

    Those old tools had some flair in the design. They not only worked good but looked good too. That belt sander is unique. I have never seen a design quite like that. Very nice indeed.

    You just have to remember not to touch the sharp/moving parts. Many of the old stuff came with some safety’s. See the gold tablesaw and jointer in my pictures have guards. All the tablesaw originally had guards that were gone when I got the except the one and that ones badly bent.
