Some of the others on this board like to play with old tools.
My grandparents are downsizing to a retirement center, so I got to drive down and pick up some of my poppy’s tools.
The two larger items are a bandsaw from the 1950’s and a table saw. The table saw is nothing special, but it does have a cast iron top.
The band saw is a solid piece of machinery. I spent a few hours doing basic cleanup and getting the bandsaw screws to turn correctly for everything.
Once I got everything into the garage, my wife very quickly noticed that her car no longer fits. Looks like we’ll be building a storage shed finally. That way all the yard/gardening stuff can be put into the shed and I can finish up the garage workshop. I can’t wait to get my old 1950’s lathe onto a permanent fixture too. I also have a very old joiner/table saw combo I’m still trying to restore.
Poppy had a ton of tools laying around. The one that cracked me up the most was someone had bought him a 150 piece mechanic starter kit from Sears. The box looked like it had never been opened.
