Default Old Tools

Cleaned out my grandparents garage a year or so back after my grandma passed away and their garage had always been a disorganized mess, and mix of both awesome things and junk. I rescued a bunch of the old tools and parts and things. Both my grandparents worked at Lincoln Electric in Ohio; my grandpa was an electrical engineer and also worked at a hardware store here in CO.

I grabbed a few pics out of the pile of stuff that I thought I'd share. Anyone else have pictures of cool old school tools they'd like to share?

Cool stuff! I'll have to take some pics of the tools my dad gave me when he retired and moved South last year. Some vintage Snap-On and Navy Issue stuff that's made Landcruiser quality.

Most of my "old Tool" collection is logging stuff.

Did your grandpa ever do any work for the lakeshore power plant in Cleveland? If so I have some pictures of it before they demoed the place. I spent three months there as they were prepping for shutdown.
