I used to use one of those erasers also back in the days of hand drawing electrical schematics before CAD.

I use a lot of old tools in my woodworking hobby.  I have planes dating back to the time of the American revolution.  I should get some pictures.  

Not my picture but I have similar planes:

I still use hand tools and saws,axes from the late 1800's early 1900's.

Have old craftsman drills and routers from the 1950/60's that run great.

I was going to post up my #32!  Glad to see someone else still uses one of these.  I have a few other vintage Stanley rulers but this one sees the most use anymore.

Spring calipers. They are old school but sometimes they are about the only thing that will work.


Not my collection, stock photo, but I probably have as many if not more.

My father in law picked up one of those old Stanley rulers.  Turned out that the "wood" was actually ivory.

When you heard it humming away for long periods of time was that a pretty good indication to leave dad alone, as he may not be in the best of moods?

I still have mine. I turned it into a fan though for my office for when the A/C goes down.

Beryllium (anti-spark) wrenches and pliers. They actually are radioactive. My dad had them when he worked in the oil fields.

At work, we have an old wooden spoke wheel with a solid rubber tire mounted.  It's attached to a tripod and used as a turntable to unwind rolled up hose.

My entire radio bench is tube era tools and testing equipment.





Latest addition was ANOTHER Signal generator.







I just can't walk by a Hickock 188x or Rider Chanalyst..







Last week it was the Rider..







Not mine but one like this.. FOUR magic eye tubes.. Glorious.

I would walk in and stand at the end of his drafting table, he would look up and talk to me when he was free.

Sometimes Id be a minute, sometimes I'd sit and wait until he was free (it could be a while)


Truth is I'd love to be able to do that again, just sit and wait and watch him work.
