That was cool to check out. A few of those tools I was exposed too back in the early 80's when I was learning engine machine work and even then were antiques.

I worked in an old auto parts shop after school. The back area was a museum of old machines like they posted on the HAMB. Only the older dudes on the parts counter knew how to use them. They would set me up on the brake rotor machine and then go outside to smoke Lucky Strikes and talk about thermo-quad carbs or fuelie heads. Cool stuff.
