How's this for a cool, vintage tool?
« on: September 14, 2021, 10:08:55 PM »
We've been replacing a bridge over a local river, and, while doing some landscaping around it today, the excavator operator dug this little beauty up.

It could have been dropped there any time, but as we are on a pretty busy highway, I think it's more likely that it was dropped and lost when the old bridge was built.  I believe that happened some time around the late 60's, but I'm not 100% certain.

At any rate, it is a very cool find, and I'm thinking if no one else takes it I may just have to grab it for myself, maybe mount it on a board and hang it up in the house!

If it's a Craftsman, it is still under warranty.   :facepalm:

But heck yeah, clean it up and mount it on a board! That would be cool!

I'm not sure there's enough left to clean up!   :ahhh

I'd probably give it a bit of a Scrub, carefully to make sure nothing broke off, then clear coat the whole thing to keep it from deteriorating any further.

Cool! Soak it in WD40, just enough for the brand to show and call them for a replacement.

Hahaha I can't imagine any manufacturer turning that down!

Unfortunately someone else has decided to claim it, which is probably a good thing as I don't really need any more junk in my house!   :ahhh

Great find!

My grandmother found a chisel that had been used when the rock retaining walls around the house had been built in the 1940s. It's still perfectly usable, and had not gotten that rusty. Covered in rust, of course, but not pitted or eroded.

That's awesome!  Usually chisels are high carbon steels to get that super hard edge on them, so it's very cool to find one that would survive being buried that long!
