New/old treasures.

.

A few new old things have been added to the man cave of late.

.

.

A primitive sled, which I thought was for children.. but turned out to be for hauling split wood from the shed to the house back in the day. And no, it didn’t stay in that position….

.

.

It’s precariously propped up in the corner behind the chairs.

.

.

A pump action vacuum cleaner. And as a modern woman of today, let me tell you… it ain’t no Roomba.

.

.

A few more Name that Crap! tools have made their way to the table of antique horrors.

So if you ever need to draw information from a recalcitrant friend or loved one… let me know.

  1. You’re sounding more like your pre-booster self, so hope you are feeling better also. The Spanish Inquisition would have loved some of those things. The ancient wood sled I used to have to use as a child at least had little cross bits at front and back to keep the logs from rolling off. That sled in your mancave must be even older than mine was.

  2. Lower right corner is a valve lapper (for automotive valves). Center stage is a barn beam drill press for putting peg holes in post and beam construction components. Others appear to be grinders os sanders of some sort, perhaps for sharpening tools.

    I hope this means you’re feeling better. Did they save you any pie? Any green bean casserole?

  3. Hey! Glad you’re still with us. Love the Barn Mahal. If I had a barn to start with, it probably still wouldn’t look that good. I like old tools (And not because they are so much like me, thank you very much). I don’t have a lot of space to store or display them, so they are mostly old, but not really obsolete. I was a machinist for some time, so I collected some pretty cool measuring tools and I have always enjoyed using them.
    While on the subject of tools, I saw the Colonial Williamsburg pics. We went there a few years ago and likely have some similar shots. At the smithy, I’m fairly certain I drove the same wheelbarrow and I couldn’t believe the young lady making nails at the forge. I doubt a CNC machine could have done any better. So how long did it take you to get him out of the gunsmith shop? Got some super cool tools in there…
    Got anything good in the freezer? I’m thinking my black Friday dinner will be something like a bowl of tomato soup and a grilled cheese sandwich. If I had only eaten the turkey I would have doubtless slept like a baby, but all the side dishes rolled around in my belly like a big delicious bowling ball of gratitude all night long.
    I forgot to get some egg nog so I have to go out and get some. I never have any until after dinner on Thanksgiving day. Hopefully I will be able to find some. More details will be brought to you as they become available.

  4. It is all merely stuff on its way to somewhere else. Except maybe that sled. It can be used for restocking adult beverages during ice and snow storms. Get well whilst you are immunizing. Hmmm now why is that not the brand name of an adult beverage ? Immune with a zing !

  5. Curating his haul might be a retirement hobby. Research each item, find any pics etc, and turn it into a tools’n’crap museum that opens one day a week or month to the public. He could really enjoy his junk then and someone may even discuss it with him. Only trouble is privacy concerns. But he could do a blog or webpage?
