    Dang that's sweet. Between my brother, father and myself, we have a bunch of my grandfathers old tools. They are probably from the 50's as well, though a couple we know are from the 30's. I still use my grandfathers round and scoop shovels to this day, though definitely not as much as he did.

    Barney I definitely appreciate your craftsman ship (top notch) and your passion for working with these tools but I find your knowledge of their history to be sincerely amazing.

    Thanks, Ed, I appreciate that!
    I guess I got interested in the history of hand tools because you couldn't get a good one after the 70's.

    Very nice! I work in a woodshop nearly every day unless I'm installing a kitchen somewhere. Really takes the fun out of it when you HAVE to work on stuff that pays the bills instead of stuff you wanna tinker with lol... such is life:rolleyes:

    A person has to have a day or two to collect themselves. The ol' daily grind gets old.
