Antique Hand Tools
« on: January 14, 2009, 07:15:47 PM »
 :o

Looks like I can be the first to start off this interest.  I know 'Frank' can join in............if he chooses to do so. :laugh:

WOODWORKING
Push Drills:  These are very handy for finnish detail
Eggbeater Drills: Great speed control
Chest Drills: Great for heavier drilling
Brace:
Corner Brace: right/left angle drilling
Ship Maul

(note:........do not require $50 batteries that wear out in two or less years or the need to drag cord and change brushes. Who says modern day tools have greater versatility than the antiques. Many of mine are 50 to 100 years in age and will probably still be working 50 to 100 years after me...........scoffs in the face of 'progressive obsolence' of today or outsourcing.)

LOGGING
Numerous axes both double bit and single e.g.: Swamp; Pacific Faller; California Reversable; Michigan, etc.
Broad Axe
Several Crosscut: Disston 'M' tooth; Arkansas Oak; etc.
Mattix
Grub Hoes
Pulaski
Hookeroon
Peavey
Tongs
Undercutter
Saw Sets
Jointers

I like using all of the above hand tools and tho they may be antiques. I still use them in business. Many of the logging tools have better steel than currently on the market.

Recently purchased a 'damaged' Silvey square chisel grinder. Finished yesterday restoring it. Discovered by it's model /serial it is a late 60's model.  ;D

Welcome to the site Stephen.

What is a Mattix and an Undercutter?

Oops sp. error
mattock  not  mattix

mattock:  cutting tool similar to a 'pick-axe' only with a flatter usually longer blade than a grub hoe. Different options on back side of pick blade or axe blade (usually more of anvil design).

undercutter: several different designs of these tools are available. Used especially when one man is bucking a larger log with a crosscut saw. Undercutter is driven into log/tree back of saw blade rides in wheel to maintain stability on whip end. a.k.a - underbuck.

Hi Steve,

Was out your way yesterday..........stopped off at 'Branch Equipment'. I had advised them and their neighbors about 8 years ago; as to the disease and hazard of those DF's.  Are you getting those cedars in front of the Realtor? ;D

Keep looking for that Coe!!  :o

Today, I went to look at a job over here.......noticed every property out the 'Abiqua's' have damage.

Also coming back into town (from Mt. Angel) saw a White GMC towing a MD......
hey Frank someone you know?

BTW have you noticed the antique peavey at Branch?

Going to be sawing some 40"+ cedar this coming week but haven't asked about the one in front of the realestate place. 

The Coe is burried in the "Garage Sale" stuff and we kind of had a bad year and didn't have the sale so somewhere in that pile it's hiding.

They did remove two of thos e DF's last year and they were full of metal and insulators.  Guess they were natural utility poles for a number of years.  The guy ruined 3 chains making firewood.

Sorry Stephen, I am not sure who the MD mill fella might be.  It might be Dee Grubbs from just South of Salem.

The Pulaski is the second pic I downloaded: " some edge tools" it has leather guards over the blades and is distinguishable by the straight axe handle (in the foreground) compared to the larger / thicker mattock handle next to it.

Also painted red.

Stupid me 8)  I was only looking at page 2 of this thread instead of the "whole" thread.

You can have the Pulaski.  Every time I have used one of those its hot, dirty, and after a days work your covered in black soot  :(  No more fire lines for this kid!

Steve, I do not have an under-cutter.   How much for your under-cutter?
