Oh I put up a new Q already but it may have been asked already somewhere during the 1,000 pages. Its an easy 'un. Dad does have some seriously obscure tools from 35 years at IBM.

Nother rainy day here. My li'l garage is calling me out to play though.

New Rotisserie

I had a rotisserie delivered last night and put my 55 Nomad body on it today.
I have LOTS of work to do on it and it is hot in the garage in Florida.

Four of us hit the local trade school car show today! Funds from the show help high school kids with class fees and project funds. All of our cars are 60's style gassers, and are a 1948 Austin A40, 1955 Pontiac Chieftain, 1965 Nova, and my 1963 Falcon. The students surprised me with their knowledge of older cars, and their knowledge of the part gassers played in 1960's drag racing!
All four of our cars were chosen for "student's choice" awards! That doesn't happen often when adults judge a show. Usually none of our cars get an award when judged by adults. It seems the younger generation sees something many in betweeners don't see!

Had surgery on my hand yesterday. Evidently, I severed two tendons. Anywhere from 4-6 months of recovery/healing time. trying to make a list of all the one-handed projects I can do on my T. My son may come down the end of the month to help finish it.

I gotta stop doing this stupid *****....getting too old and it takes longer to heal...lol.

I fixed the garage door, messed with the 455 a little. mowed...

but mostly I was surfing up these old tools just to get an idea of their ages. This ain't all, but these stood out as old to me. I was shocked on some of these things, and now I have ideas about their origins. All older than me. I think theres two ride-along tool kits partially represented here. What goes with what? How many items do you recognize?

Your Machinist's Hammer was probably made by Plumb Tools The spark plug tool came out of a kit. The larger Snap-On Ratchet was made in the forties. The smaller ratchet I think was also made by Plumb. You have two different styles of adjustable wrenches commonly called "Monkey Wrenches". Check the one with the rounded top for a manufacturers name. It might be a "Ford Wrench" The two Slip Joint Pliers are common although the one with the curved handle is of better quality. The other one might be from a kit.

I love old tools!

The hammer, plug tool, and pliers on the left (Fairmount hammer, see stamping) look a lot like part of an Army Jeep kit, 1940+.

Pliers and adjustable wrench on right look like Ford 8N / 9N tool kit components but are probably aftermarket. Wrench is unmarked except for a "22", pliers have wrong mark to be Ford.

1/2 Snap-On was made from 1950-65.

The center monkey wrench is most likely a century old and does not exactly match others found of the same brand 100%. The markings indicate the brand but other manufacturer markings are also present that seem to be unusual.

The small ratchet is a Snap-On "midget" from 1940-42 in 9/32" drive.

Grandpa worked at a Ford garage as a youngster, used a Ford tractor, and was in the Army late in WWII. I got a giant history lesson finding info on these. I love these tools!

There's a lot of those little hammers out in the world, I think many of them were army surplus. On the web their main mention is where military vehicle buffs are building up correct Jeep tool kits, and the pliers next to it match the look of what came in those kits. The ratchets and monkey wrenches work fairly smooth after I cleaned and oiled them.

The adjustable wrench on the right appears to be a knock-off of a popular Ford tractor or maybe Model T or A kit wrench. Pliers next to it, same thing. But the adjustable wrench in the center is made by Billings and bears the B in a triangle trademark. The logo on it is B & Co, and its obviously made by them but differs slightly from the rest I saw. It was AKA a bicycle wrench. Both adjustable wrenches and the hammer are items that were made by multiple manufacturers but look the same. I reckon you could get away with that more back then.

Do you think your wife would consider moving to Tennessee if you bought her a new doublewide? That should leave enough for a 40 X 60 shop and keep you from killing yourself on the house!
