    A few power tools from my collection. I typically just do a quick clean and have yet to refurbish any I like the used look. There are so many of these tools out there just being tossed away. Most were picked up for less than $20.00 and they are so much better than the garbage they make today.

      Love the old drill press. Would have loved to save my fathers collection which was extensive, however, I was too old at the time to work on it.

      They're all really great! I too love that belt driven drill press. A very robust piece of equipment.

      My fav is the reciprocating saw in pic 3. I've got something similar that I've gotta show here one of these days... :-)

      AnythingObscure that is a belt drive horizontal reciprocating saw for cutting steel. It came out of a small metal fabricator shop near my house. Guy just modernized and was getting rid of old stuff. Crazy how some people look at some of this stuff as old junk. I don’t think I have spent over $30 on any of my power tools. Please share your tools when you get a chance. Thanks for all your great comments.
