when that damn socket doesn’t hit the garage floor… it’s a damn search that Sherlock and his magnifying glass would be challenged by

Bob wrote a great article about tools in the Model T forum on Facebook, and mentioned he has inherited tools from his dad, who was given them by his grand dad… that is so cool!

(and here is what he wrote:)
What Dad Taught Me About Lending and Borrowing Tools

The loan of a tool is a sacred, holy thing, especially when it involves that kind of rare, extremely hard-to-replace, vintage implement that does the job oh-so-much-better than anything manufactured in the last half-century (and you know the type I’m talking about; they’re always rust-colored without actually being rusty). Man, that’s an expression of trust!

I was brought up by a second-generation, Italian-American Dad in a paper paint hat, shoulder-strap undershirt and leather tool-belt. Grandpa wore the same uniform. Both made their livings as disciplined craftsmen and both treated their tools like a priest treats golden altar utensils. When he gave me my first bicycle, Dad, in ceremonial solemnity, withdrew from his tool cabinet, a satchel-grip of ancient hand tools—and with laser beam eye-contact, gave me permission to use them as I needed, explicitly conditional on their diligent care and return. One made certain to be careful with the tools Grandpa had handed down to Dad. Respect.

Well, Dad has been gone for a number of years and his tools are mine, now (and they sure as hell don’t go in the plastic bucket with my Harbor Freight junk). Some of them have the Ford imprint, for Giuseppe and Conrad were Ford men; and when I reach for one of those wrenches to use on my Model T—

which is identical to the car in the sepia-tone photo of Dad and Uncle Lou, for they two went partners on a 1915 Touring just before the war—I get a feeling of heart-tugging nostalgia. I gaze at that tool in my hand and from the archives of my memory, a video is selected much the same way an old Wurlitzer juke box would extract a single record from a horizontal stack of 45’s. As it plays, there’s Dad looking not quite forty years old, and he smiles patiently as he tells Bobby, not yet Bob, “Before you screw on the nut, turn it backwards till you feel the click; THEN spin it on.”

Recycled bike forks

January 16th, 2017 by admin

INSTEAD OF ADDING yet another bottle-opener to your already overcrowded bike, the Bike Fork Bottle Opener recycles the dropouts or forks of old, dead bikes and turns them into beer bottle-top poppers.

Made by Etsy-er EH84, each opener is unique, although you can specify the wrapping on the handle — you can choose between leather and rope. The results are brutally beautiful, and cost $30 each, which isn’t bad for a hand-crafted implement.

the Western Star custom Low Max truck "Wanted" for Daimler… why doesn’t something like this make an appearance at SEMA?

May 26th, 2014 by admin

This remarkable custom rig was developed especially for the giant Mid America truck of 2011 and was a real crowd favorite.

Chris Jory is the manager of the concept, the prototype and corporate show trucks for Western Star. He was told by brand communications manager, Andy Johnson, to come up with something amazing and was given free reign. Chris enlisted the help of Mickey Larson, president of Twins Custom Coaches in Oregon

The Redmond-based outfit let their imagination run free although they did stop short of fitting revolvers to either side of the bonnet, as per one member’s suggestion, but they did install unique double-barrel exhaust stacks designed to mimic rifles.

There are many unique features, but it is the leather that most people’s eyes are drawn to. Instead of limiting the use of leather to the interior, like most truck-builders, the Western Star team decided to use in on the outside too.

who actually made the tools labeled Sears Craftsman? About a 100 companies

December 8th, 2013 by admin

General Tools and Instruments was founded in New York City in 1922 as the General Hardware Manufacturing Company. Abe and Lilian Rosenberg were the founders, and Abe came up with his own tool ideas which he had made by various machine shops. In 1937, they began to offer tools under their own company name and they were among the first to manufacture die-cast tools. Their success ultimately led them to make tools for Sears, where in 1946 they became charter members of the Sears 100 Club of Craftsman tool suppliers.
