Cleaning out my old shop

Postby Barnyard » Wed Nov 20, 2013 12:09 am

Now that our renters are moving we are considering selling our old house. In doing so I will have to finally clean out my old shop and move everything into the barnyard somewhere. I found a couple of things tucked back on some shelves that I had forgotten about.

The first was this old Charles Parker #86 vice from the mid 1800's. It had come out of my uncle's auto repair shop years ago and may well have been my grandfathers. It weighs about 50 pounds and appears to have everything with it including the large mounting plate that goes behind the workbench.

This old Smith & Hemenway nail puller came out around the 1880's. I believe this came from my uncle's shop also.

Now this big ol' fella was found in the tack room of BOB when I first began working on the loft floor. The only marking on it is NM32. It is 54" long and the jaws are 1 7/8" wide and 2 3/4" deep. The handle is a piece of 1 3/4" diameter pipe. It looks to have been driven into the pipe. There is no weld connecting the pipe to the head but it is tight as a drum. I'm not sure if it is factory or not. I am also not sure what it is but due to the size of the jaws and since most wood used back in the late 1800's was full dimensional it may have been used to twist a warped floor joist before nailing, but that is just my 2ยข opinion.

It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Cleaning out! What a pain. But then sometimes it can almost be like a birthday, much of the time you find some pretty neat stuff that you forgot you had, but really don't need it anymore.
But, that old stuff is neat and for sure stuff to keep and display.

Good stuff! I bet you're right about that last item... A lot of times when I'm framing, I keep a big pipe wrench with me for that purpose.
