Our towns' transfer station(for garbage disposal) has a "swap shed" for things people don't want but are still usable. I go each week and often come back with some "treasures". Last week it was a WWII British type III canteen w/ harness and a Bren Gun magazine pouch. It has often been tools or hardware but even a few LTs over the years. Reuse is even better than recycling. Good Luck, Rick

If my wife got ahold of all those old tools, I would be spending my weekend hanging them all over the walls.

when I see old tools I like to think of the people that used them to live and survive,must have been a lot of hard work.Was no free ride back then.

absolutely Guy's i always try to share or reuse things 1st if possible & yes the yesterday yr was a hard life for most but on that note an honest life , most never left there local town ship or surrounding area's (farms & such ) & as for the old tools i just store them in a shed for the time being as don't know what i'm doing with them yet ,

 

i got 20 odd hand wood saws packed away & an old log ripp saw huge teeth on it (2 man ) type ,

 

some of the tools would clean up well in molasses as show peaces

That is a nice sheetmetal brake. Clean it up and try it out. It is amazing how much you can make with one of those when you practise. I've made many auto body parts with the one I used to have. Good Luck, Rick

the best part of the kero fridges is if Kero is to expensive as it is here can use a small propane gass burner & set in place of kero burner & adjust the flame of the gas to chill the fridge the same way kero tank burner does 

 

 the bender is in really good condition the bloke that gave it to me made it at collage yrs ago he said , done very little work
