  1. Dear Lloyd, just discovered your blog via a lovely youtube vid/interview. I am enjoying it already and scanning back through "tools" brought me here. What a great picture, I work with a foot powered lathe very similar to the one on the right and I didn't know about this one so thanks for the link, I shall try to find out more about it and appreciate the source link.

  2. Wow. It is absolutely an awesome collection. My father has also a lot of old tools kept in his own storage room. I think he will be envy of you for having such numbers of antique tools and great lay-out on the wall by the way.
