On the Outside

The Chronicle

This is crazy… You know that guy in Texas that restores those gorgeous old machinist chests? Well, he just found a real gem. Essentially,¬†the original owner used it as both a tool chest and a journal. On the back of each drawer are carvings of all the important dates in his life – from Pearl Harbor to the day the weather was 18-below in 1942.

Check out photos of the restored chest here.

The Specialized Tools Of Traditional Hot Rodding

I thought you guys would get a kick out of this… A couple of weeks ago, I started a thread on the H.A.M.B. asking folks to take pictures of the vintage tools they use to work on their hot rods. The result is a honey pot of amazing images and tools.

I really, really like this stuff…

Check it out.

Frank Howarth

So the other day I posted about finding the “Get Hands Dirty” channel on YouTube. From that, a user on the forums turned me onto Frank Howarth… and then I went down the rabbit hole discovering the creativity not only behind the projects Frank takes on, but also how he creates and edits his videos. His videos are art and if you haven’t taken the time to watch a few, you need to stop what you are doing right now and do so.

Check it out.

Compressor Enclosure

I was farting around on the internet the other day and ran into a pretty smart outdoor compressor enclosure that utilizes a smart muffler of sorts.

You can see the details here.

It’s a hell of a lot of work for a cheap pancake compressor, but the idea seems pretty sound to me.
