must be good tv nite. Been lookin at vintage tractors on e-bay. Collectors are screwin everything up for the guy who needs a cheap machine.

Story of my life. When I was doin carpenter work, the same thing happened. There was a time when you could get good tools for a fair price. Then someone decided tools ought to hang on a wall instead of being used. The old ones had the best steel and were the best ones. I still buy old tools when I can. New stuff will rust if you just look at it.
There no tool like an old tool for an old fool.
Nite all

Glad you collect tools charles - that sez something good about you.

Hey i told you about my favorite hammer didn't i? Used it for 40 years - only replaced the handle 3 times and the head twice! :)
Then my poor steel tape is so old the numbers are all worn off - but i've used it so long i remember where they all were! :)
And my carpenter's pencil, went thru the lead years ago but i never did find anything else that fit that pocket on my tool belt so it's ---- :)
Used nails? Jeez i must have a ton by now ----
i hang them on the wall, ceiling, roof, car tires, ---

RFD has just had an hour of old country music shows. Didn't say what the vintage was but I'm guessing '60s, 1970 at the latest. Wilburn Brothers with guests Loretta Lynn and George Jones. Then Pop Goes the Country with Chet Atkins and Jerry Reed. That one might have been a little later, maybe into the '70s or thereabouts.
