Hill Acme Tool Engine Hoist

You are gonna have to excuse these terrible images – the content was so fantastic, that I had to post them. What are you looking at is a Hill Acme Tools engine hoist made sometime in the 1920′s or 30′s. It’s for sale, but it ain’t cheap. $3,500.

I’m in love…

The Craftsman Workbench Project

I have nothing to do with Craftsman at the moment… and I’m not being compensated to feature this video at all. I just found it interesting. And regardless of the overly commercial production, you gotta like the workbench.

Garage Art

I don’t do this very often, but Steve is a buddy and I really dig his passion for this stuff… Anyway, I’ve long had a love for Wolf’s Head Oil stuff. I have one of the original 3′ by 6′ signs that hung in my grandfather’s shop that I cherish and I’ve always wanted more, but they are next to impossible to find. And when you do find them, they seem to always be priced around $1200. Rich.

That’s where Steve comes in. Through Garage Art, he just released a new line of “patina” signs that feature an aged look. And while it might be valid to turn your nose at man made patina, it starts to make a lot more sense when the value of the real thing gets out of hand for a casual admirer.

Vintage Lift

A friend of mine sent over an email chock full of vintage jack and lift ads. I’ve always wanted one of these old floor jacks, but the right one just hasn’t found me yet. Someday… Until then, these old ads will keep me dreaming.

TXinkman Does it Again…

A great restoration of a gorgeous box. This time, our favorite box restorer from Texas used an antique canvas to cover the exterior of the box – giving it the fell of an old trunk. Gorgeous. Check it out:
