estate sale

Filed under: old tools — howarth frank @ 9:08 pm

I found a great estate sale this morning. I guess the house had other stuff in it; I only made it to the basement and the garage, which were full of old tools.  I ended up with an old wallace 6 inch jointer, a work bench vice, and a power-kraft swing saw. the jointer works great, it is a direct drive 3600 rpm motor, with a three blade cutter head.

 The swing saw, was bought original by the grandfather of the guy I bought it from (and I would guess he was about 65). It was originally used to cut wood, but was later changed to cut steel.  I need to wire up a 220 outlet to see if it works.
