    Same here, sometime around ‘77 or ‘78. Hadn’t used it for a long time. Dusted it off a couple of years ago when I bought my Newport.

    cyclone 1.5 ton. purchased at the swap meet at stafford springs spring '95. cost: $20.00. me and a buddy had to lug it all the way from the infield. 003.JPG 001.JPG never ceases to amaze at the amount of equipment needed to have a functional shop but it can be done, buying right and accumulating.

    1946 lathe, Monkey Wards I think. Old locking plyers go back to the 40's that were my grandfather's.

    Makes a guy feel pretty old when "vintage" was when he was getting ready to turn 40.

    The most important tool on that cool desk is the Magic 8 Ball!
    A cousin, Albert Carter was the inventor.

    If you don't or didn't know, the bottom tool is called a Yankee screwdriver. I have 2 of them that were my Dad's.

    Still works.
    Make tapes once in a while for buddies that still have a working 8-track.
    Made Cary Underwood and Taylor Swift 8-track tapes complete with album art label for a friend.
    His daughter thinks they’re the coolest things.
