Tools that have stood the test of time.

Do any of you guys have tools that you bought a long time ago but still work like the day you bought them? Some tools just seem like they won't die. One of those such tools is my dads ingersoll rand 231 that he has had since he graduated high school. My grandpa now uses it at his home garage. The only thing wrong with it is the friction ring is broken. It still kicks like a mule though. It is just over 31 years old too. If you guys have any old tools still kicking post them here.

My Dad's old Craftsman 7-1/4" circular saw I have. He gave it to me when he moved to Florida. I replaced the cord with an aftermarket kit from HD and a new blade and it works just fine. Not a powerhouse like my new Skilsaw but it gets the job done quite nicely. Pretty sweet being the thing is over thirty years old.
