Post your OLD Tools & Accessories Thread!

12 posts in this topic

I thought it would be cool to start a thread for everyone to post pictures of their old tools & related accessories. Can be old tools from family member's, old items you find around your shop, old cool stuff that you come across while cleaning, etc.

While searching for parts to build a shelf, I just came across this tube of liquid nails. It's funny how things have changed... I found quite a few other neat things and will be posting later.

I recently put this together. After my Dad passed away I was selling off a bunch of his tools for my Mom. He wanted me to have his stuff but I had everything he has and more.  Some of the old tools really had no value so I made garage art out of it.  All this was tools that was around from my youth.

A router/router table I bought a couple months ago. Works great!:

Also bought this router at the same time, it works well also. I just used both this weekend:

@BMack37 nice olive green B&D drill. My family got an electric B&D hedge trimmer from my grandpa. Probably from same era because it was a olive green as well.

All beauties, but I still think I'm most jealous of the Grinder 🤔

It is a good looking machine. I really want to do the jointer but I'm being good and holding off. It works just fine so no rush like the drill press.
