Glen, this is certainly an enviable collection of hand tools that you have managed to put together. You appear to have them well organized and the pegboard is an excellent means of storing them and keeping them readily at hand.

You have a nice shop in which to work.

Thanks Scott, but as always a works in progress. The shot with the hammers and chisels actualy includes crawl space entry, the pegboard
isn’t just an easy way out for hanging. In this case it’s on a two by two frame, hinged at one end and in
the middle of two pannels. that way it can be swung out to get to the space and also provides ventilation there. What I realy need to get on with is some cabbnets !

That is a great collection. Impressive and well organized to say the least.
Nice looking shop.

It’s the area with the collection of Beer cans on display. Pretty simple though, just take the rods/handles off, take a measurement
that you think will give you a better pull, thread rod the same size and put the orriginal, or your choice knobs on. I may yest change the stock golf ball size ends to something larger. The first one I tried was only a couple inches longer, but that gave the leverage..oh..and got my head
further away from the busness end of the press

a1Jim.. Something you can never have enough of ;-)
The pics don’t give a view of the stump with the blacksmith’s leg vice and such..
It’s got hangers all arround with the ball peens, baby sledges , rock pic , auto body etc hammers on it. HHmmm..I think it’s time to ‘borrow’ the camera and do some of my OWN shots ?

Wow, that is a great collection of hand tools. I was wondering, does that brass fire extinguisher work? We had one I found in my mom’s garage and ti sprayed out a fluid that was real stinky. I think it may have just been old, but it worked…............JIm

Jim, it’s non functional… picked it up at auction and had the local fire department check it out..not useable..
and I have a sign by it saying is’s “disfunctional” The real one is mounted by the other side of the shop door.
