Another drill.
Love the wooden threads on the handle.
Storage space for drill bits.
My wife lets her students use the tools I find & put back into use in her American History class.

A buddy has been going on and on about brass pipe he's salvaging from an old building. His 2.5 pack a day smoking habit especially seemed thrilled with the scrap money. I finally got some for purposes of historical preservation.

This is the same asshole who scrapped handfuls of c.1925 nickel-plated brass bathroom wall hooks, getting about 50¢ each. Mad

Plumrite, made by Bridgeport Brass Company, Connecticut, c.1927.
Trimmed, shaped, threaded, and assembled into a Pony pipe clamp.

(At risk of thread drift) Do you have that Renishaw in use? I'd like to learn more about that. How big a working area can it cover?

We've got a "yuge" Zeiss at work that is likely overkill for a lot of what we measure....

Smooth jaw adjustable wrench ... perfect for turn-of-the-century polished brass radiator union nuts. Nice!

My go-to is a 14". I've also a 24" but often get away with the 14" with a 2'-3- pipe on the handle. I've also acquired a 10" Ridgid aluminum pipe wrench and cheated that one to 24" ... They just do not break.

I worked with a fair bit of 2" and larger plumbing when I worked at the cannery.

Aluminim pipe wrenches were a lifesaver, especially when working overhead.

Lots of nice old tools here. Below is a picture of my workbench drawer with a full set of Stanley Type 11 C hand planes made between 1910 and 1918. While there are a couple of others in there for dedicated purposes, the remainder are working planes I use making chairs. This is a full set and includes numbers 8,7,6,5-1/2,5,4-1/2,4,3 and a 2. The planes have all their original parts including totes and knobs.

Very nice! I've got an ebony fingerboard to thin and shape next month and am finally buying a suitable plane. The 5.5" Lie Nielsen #102 is a likely choice, like the one Patrick-SP2022 posted. Unless a local knife sharpening guy gets a decent Stanley.

For stuff that only needs to be finger tight.

Also handy for transferring size reference to the hardware store.

The tool beside the anvil is for shearing horns off sheep and goats. Might also be stout enough for cattle.

OUCH!

Here is my Ettore squeeze. 30 years old and just getting started. Only genuine rubber will do!

Indeed.

Some time when things are slow, I'll tell the story about one of my brothers, his Big City Girlfriend and the weekend the de-horning crew showed up at our farm...

I'm searching for a few 2" c-clamps for particular luthier wants and needs.
So was trolling used clamps online this morning. Here's a spiffy clamp.
