    Show us Your Vintage Tools and Vintage Garage Stuff

    First up...1" Drive Snap On 2000 ft/lb torque wrench. I was told the guy worked for Bell and it was used to torque the Jesus nut (the nut that holds the main rotor on) on a UH-1. $40 at a garage sale down the road. It will make a nice wall hanger...I have absolutely no need for it. Just thought it was cool.

    That's pretty awesome. All I have to add is my sweet/crappy late 70s Sears mower. 3 speed manual-esque tranny and it'll pop a tiny wheelie if you drop the clutch.

    Nice on both! I'll have to grab a picture of the old two man saws my pops gave me. I still have one outside that Virginia bought me a while back that I need to get hung up with them.

    Here is an old 50's craftsman vise I redid. Figured it was better than a lot of new stuff you can buy and for a lot less. After and Before

    This was of the cooler things I uncovered. I bought this toolbox for $70 to use to house all my sand paper, wire wheels, grinding wheels, etc. I was just going to clean the grease off the gray paint and call it good. Well, the lacquer thinner revealed some red and hammertone gray paint. So I wiped all the paint off, wet sanded it, put a new lock in it, and greased the slides. It's an old Monkey Wards Powr-Kraft.

    Walker Turner belt sander that I believe was made in 1939. The belts are an odd length that have to be custom made but it runs like a top. Got it for free from an old Ag in San Antonio.

    Buddy of mine picked this drill press up at a flea market.

    Uploaded on mobile, not sure why the pics are sideways but you get the point.

    Thor 1/2" drill I got off Craigslist. I put a new grounded cord on it. The original cord wasn't grounded. No bueno with a metal case. I'm guessing 1940's? You can add a pipe thread handle to make sure you break both wrists when it hangs up. It has some serious torque. I polished the case for good measure. Thor also made motorcycles at one time. 'Merica made.

    You should research that press. I wonder if they forged the top piece too. That's pretty cool that they made it as a project.

    The top piece was cast on that drill press. I had a prof at a&m that was old and he had one he ad made. Try made them back in the day for mechanical engineering in the manufacturing course. They machined the pulleys, heat treated technology quill and cast the top part. Pretty cool.

    It had a SSN engraved into it. Came up as an old Ag who was also an Army medic I think? My buddy couldn't find anythjng current and he was older so I think he's passed.

    I will have to go around my shop taking pics of some of our stuff. My grandpa liked to collect old ****, so we use a lot of antique stuff.
