Acquired a variable speed #bridgeportmill ! We got it dug out moving it to the shop next weekend. #oldtoolsrule #makingrad #hotrodsrule

Something old, but new to me. B.C. Ames 870 Horizontal mill. This will come in very handy and a great size for a small, cramped space. Big thanks to @26ind for letting this one go! #bcames870 #bcamesco #horizontalmill #oldtoolsrule

Did someone call a Doctor, a Drum Dokter that is? Love all my old tools and equipment. #drumdokter #oldtoolsrule #lovingoldtools #loveoldtools #oldtoolsarebetter ettermade

I must have bought this before I had a plasma cutter. I'm a sucker for old stuff. The date looks like 1908. 💥wonder if it works 🤔 #antique #torch #old #oldtoolsrule

Making dowels on my Stanley No.77 Dowel machine - it’s like a great big pencil sharpener + beautifully engineered! #handmade #furniture #dowels #dowelsfordays #stanley #oldtoolsarethebesttools #oldtoolsrule #woodworking

Drum Dokter... one of the coolest and handiest I have around the shop. #oldtoolsrule #dokternotdoctor

These I bet can tell some tales of forgery . #oldtoolsrule #pittsburgh #stamps

Today, I was finally able to start cleaning my shop. I got to spend some time cleaning and waxing one of my favorite tools. It is a vintage Clausing drill press that was made in Michigan in I am guessing the late 60s. I completely rebuilt the whole press but replaced the two bearings that hold the spindle inside the quill with two high precision matched bearings. She has no runout. I love old Michigan Made tools! #knifemaker #michiganknifeco #knifemaking #michiganmade #oldtools #oldtoolsrule

The rustic look is so easy! A couple of slats from an old pallet and voila`, a shelf! #rusticdecor #manoffice #inexpensivedecor #oldtoolsrule #ontothenextproject

Happy, smiling little furniture geek! 58 years old and it passes the nickel test. A little more fine tuning, and I’ll be back in business. #woodworking #woodworker #craftsman #vintage #itsalive #oldtoolsrule #customfurniture #keepcraftalive #dontmakethemlikethisanymore

Even the handles in this shop are excited about the new upcoming Avengers movie!

They say old vices are the hardest to break... seems right. Lotsa rust, couple of chips, but everything moves and it's scrubbing up nicely 😊

Got it for a dollar, I'm not sure if I want to keep it or make something. Works great! #oldtools #oldtoolsrule #wrench #antiquetools #toolart #bemisandcall #6inch #old #olderthenme #adjustablewrench #bowmanboysupcycleart

They keep showing up on my doorstep. Like stray dogs. And someone’s gotta take care and bring them in from the cold 😊👍🏼🏁 #viseporn #blacksmith #proper #söderfors #viseguy #oldtoolsrule #thewheeledviking #forsakentrade #forsakentools #forsakenindustries

My latest toy, I mean tool. A 1,1/4" gouge to add to my collection. #oldtools #oldtoolsrule #woodworking #woodcraft

Working on a few things at once. One of them is restoring some old tools that belonged to my grandfather. These will soak in vinegar for a day or so to free up the rust and years of grime that have accumulated. #notwoodworking #tools #toolsofthetrade #oldtools #oldtoolsrule #restoring #restoration #diresta #rust #rusty #handtools #vintage #grandpa #wallmanwoodshop #southernwoodworkers

Cleaned up the old draw knife I picked up last weekend. Nothing fancy, some scotchbrite to remove the crud and dressed the back and sharpened the front with a sharpening stone. Found a tiny logo, it's a P.S. & W Co. No. 1 Extra. #psandwco #drawknife #oldtoolsrule

Love this reliable old Logan. But we definitely need a tool room 14x40 to help her out. #LoganLathe #Lathe #TurretLathe #MachineShop #MadeinUSA #AmericanManufacturing #oldtoolsrule #BoyerShultz

If tools could talk... I bet this one would cuss like a sailor. The Moore Drop Forging Company was founded in 1900. This one dates around 1920-40. #oldtoolsrule #useemifyougotem #americanasfuck

The atlas 618 metal lathe is finally all back together tonight. It's really is a beautiful little machine. I'm pretty happy with how it came out. I tried to keep it true to the original configuration when my grandfather put it together in the 60's. Even the grey enamel for the stand was a dead on match to the original. I just need to do a bit of fine tuning to get her running perfect. #atlasmachine #lathe #metallathe #oldmachine #oldtoolsrule #atlas #atlas618

New to me toolbox, looks like it has lived quite a life already. If objects could speak eh #toolbox #patina #oldtoolsrule #tools

Finally bought some calipers. Good old starrett, made in the usa! Gotta love old school American made tools! Just can't beat them price for quality wise anyway.

Much like the 3d printers where I had two and needed two more then two more, I need two more lathes. Getting sick of breaking down for each job, especially since I know I'll just have to make more of the one that was just set up... #SlipperySlope

Well that didn't take as long as I expected. Planer seems to be adjusted and running much better than when I picked it up a few weeks ago. #planer #oldtoolsrule #oldtoolsarethebesttools

Since Hubby is a bronze sculptor and can appreciate the patina on all things..Christmas gift DONE!!!!

Another of my grandpa's tools covered in rust and dirt, taken apart, cleaned, lightly polished, cleaned, oiled, and all put back together just to get used for another 30 or 40 years.

For #handtoolthursday this is a Stanley no 4 1/4 I finished cleaning up and restoring a couple days ago. It's a type 13 (1925-1928). A couple pics show where the tote needed repairs but the knob is solid. Just a cleaning, polishing and sharpening. No repaint.

Throwback to my daughter helping us move the shop. #Throwbackthursday #TBT #BestJobEver #ForHer

This is my 1950 ShopSmith 10ER. I only paid $20 for it. I honestly use this pup more than any other power tool in the shop. I could live without it but, I wouldn’t like it. #nutterguitars #handmade #bustanutter #shopsmith #10er #oldtoolsrule

An old 'cutlers burnisher' , for knife making. An unusual looking tool but once used for polishing hard to reach areas on folding knives such as the tang on a blade, inside of the spring or on bolsters. It's a specially hardened piece of steel and polished along the edge, You have to put considerable pressure and move the tool back and forth which over time polishers the area it's applied.
This old burnisher is a great example of knife making tools of the past.
