Nothing happening in the shop this week, but here’s a picture of a tool I’ve had since 1972. It was the first pair of pliers I owned. Bought them myself from money I earn mowing lawns.
Yes, you can still buy them today, but these are mine and no you can’t borrow them.
I painted the number eight on them along with the letter ‘A’ because my brother and I used the same workshop and he kept stealing my tools so I did an inventory and marked mine.
I didn’t need to, because when he moved out later in 72 he left all the tools behind for me – still have the vise-grips and hammer.
Hopefully there will be a real project next week.
