« Part 2: First real venture into woodworking...hand cut dovetails. Part 3 of My Hand tool Experience series no next part

Hi everyone,

I picked up a box of really old rusty tools dating back to the 1940’s & 50’s and have been restoring a few. I cleaned the metal parts as best that I could and then proceeded to give the wood parts a sand back. I decided not to go overboard and keep some of the original maks and age showing, I just wanted to removed the spashed paint and grime etc. I then gave all the wood pasrts a coat of Buffing Oil.

The first piece is a Disston K-1 saw:

Second, a old Stanley Hand Drill:

And Finally a Stanley Yankee 135A screwdriver:

Beats them getting thrown in the garbage which is where they were heading!

Cheers from Sunny Australia
