I used one of them to make some of the cedar trim for my second floor.
I have round (cylindrical) oak and brass drill index that is about 100 years old.
I have an axe head that, when I went to get a new handle, the guy told me was from the late 1800's.
I'm sure there's more old stuff around here - I have so much crap that I've forgotten most of it. <g>

I have a horse shoe nipper that I use to crimp the black and silver rings for the terminations on UNICO tubing. They were handed down to me by my grandmother, who I am sure got them from her father. Hard to tell how old but I'm betting pretty dawgone old. They couldn't work any better for what I use them for then for what they were designed to do...

heh, about 20 years ago, I was working boilers to heat dip tanks for a chrome shop, and had all my aluminum pipe wrenches chromed... best thing ever done to the wrenches! the still work like new. the nuts spin effortlessly, and the jaws look pristine! my old aluminum ridgid wrenches still look brand new!
