Old school auger brace and auger bits. These are about 60 years old , from my Fathers tool collection. He used these a LOT when he was young, and all thru his life. He would carefully clean and oil them with Ballistol before putting them away. The box finger joints need re-gluing, as the wood glue originally used has literally turned to powder. I cannot wait to put these into use again. You simply can’t find high quality tools like these anymore. The brace is made in Canada , and the bits made in Sheffield England (the real Sheffield England, not the China “Sheffield England”) . I plan to re-glue the finger joints, sand the box and re-varnish it. #handtools #oldtools #oldtoolscollector #oldtoolsrule #toolhistory #woodtools #woodworking #woodworkingtools #fatherstools #stanleyworks #russelljennings #ballistol

Not a bad day of finds!! The rain and floods washed up a bunch of hatchet and axe heads. I only brought home the cool ones. I probably left 15-20. Pretty cool stuff!!! #artifacts #creekfinds #osageindians #stonetools #ancienttools #indianartifacts #nativeamerican #missouriartifacts #missouri #getoutdoors #explore #history #historyofpeople #oldtools #oldartifacts #nativepeople #hatchet #axe #arrowheads #arrowheadhunter #artifacthunter #explorer

Happy Friday y’all!! The little one is mine. The big one may get “ lost in shipping”. 🤣🤣🤣. Working some magic to get this big 8” Wilton Bullet to @axesandsuch from the dirty south. I’m still in shock at how big this thing is. Wow! Photo credit/inspiration fully goes to @vintageaxeworks. Both you guys rock. Thanks to @benjyscustom for making the drive to pick it up #wilton #wiltonbullet #vice #viceporn #oldtools #heavymetal #workwithyourhands #blacksmithing #blacksmith #maker #beamaker #madeinusa #bigsmall #restoration #vintagetools #broadriverknives #steel #vintagevice #oldschool

Students in the manufacturing class completed a small project using our 1963 Bridgeport Mill. . Students loved making chips! . We were fortunate to keep the mill during the renovation and last year it got a much needed tune-up from GMauritz. .  @bridgeport_mills #doityourself #americanmade #bridgeportmill #verticalmill #machinist #machining #Metalworking #oldtools #machinists #machinistlife #madeinamerica #bridgeport #usa #🇺🇸 #mill #millingmachine #teachersofig #shop #shopclass #manufacturing #makingchips

Done! Vintage True Temper No.TFH half-hatchet, rehabbed and rehung on the original handle. And yes, I know there's a crack in it! This was an estate sale find - $1 - and when you see the before pics, you'll give me credit for getting it somewhat back into shape! 😅 . The half-hatchet is a "useful variation on the hunter’s hatchet...a tool with a hammer face on one end of the head and an axe head on the other. Unlike the traditional hatchet, its blade is not rounded but straight, which makes it handy for getting into corners for certain kinds of architectural work like trimming shingles and lath, as well as for splitting lumber for wedges and some rough shaping." [◀via @bobvila] I love cool axes! 🔨🌳😍 ____________________________________________ #axe #vintagetools #toolrestoration #toolrehabilitation #toolrescue #forestry #logging #bushcraft #woodcutting #imake #mancave #edgedtools #oldtools #bushcrafter #woodworking #Pennsylvania #restoration #woodpreneur #wilderness #homesteading #lumberjack #camping #madeinUSA @axe_wax @vintageaxeworks #fall #axehounds #axejunkies #axerestoration

Heres a very cool vise that you guys will like! I got back from vacation last Sunday and I was scrolling craigslist and found this vise for sale. I called the guy up and he said that I was the first one to call and it was mine if I wanted it. That's were the problems started.. my car was in the body shop until Wednesday because i hit a deer and i really didn't want to rent a uhaul truck to drive all the way to West Virginia. Luckily, my girlfriend @adrianna_mae98 had some free time on Tuesday and she was so kind enough to volunteer her honda accord for the pick up. Anyway, after the 6 hour long round trip, I'm happy to say I'm the proud new owner of this 267 pound beast! It's a Yost 108, 8" jaws and 13.25" max open. The seller had this vise since 1984 and never used it. It sat untouched in his garage ever since. I'm going to try to video the restoration process of this one because I've noticed theres only two 8" vises on YouTube and I'm sure more would like to see vises like this. Thanks for looking guys and watch out for more! #yostvise #vise #vises #viceforvises #awesome #oldtools #vice #yostmanufacturing #castiron #machinist #blacksmith #forge #anvil

Next up is this Holland’s bench vise. I got this out of a barn. It must’ve been sitting there for years. Completely caked in rust and grime but the jaws do open. This is going to be a good test for the @evapo_rust . . #benchvise #benchvice #hollandsvice #rusty #oldtools #antiquetools #workshop #restoration #farmhouse #woodcraft #viserestoration #vises #tools #toolrestoration #vintage #vintagetools #antique #antiques #newproject #rustic

My dad’s old router has been sitting in my shed for 7 years now and this week I finally used it for the very first time. I’m not gonna lie - it was terrifying! But you know what - I can’t wait to use it again! The router enabled me to cut a decorative edge along the chunky old top as well as around the edge of each drawer. It added that little bit of interest to what was otherwise a completely boring chest of drawers. It’s never too late to pick up a tool. What are you waiting for? . . . #paintedfurniture #furnituremakeover #whiteandwood #beforeandafter #router #whitedrawers #paintitwhite #minichristmastree #thrifted #simplechristmasdecor #learnnewskills #oldtools

Last weekend there was some snow here in Sweden, but it has all melted away during the week. This is the darkest period of the year. The sun sets before 16 and the lack of snow makes it dark and gray. I tend to stay indoors, either in the garage or in the house. #handtools #tools #we♥️tools #toolporn #flatlay #flatlayfriday #fridayflatlay #oldtools #toolcollector #toolcollection
