This was a very popular feature of Tool Talk, so it continues.
I am glad to have members returning to Tool Talk!

What happened??? Have the archives been lost? If it has been already explained then excuse me, then point to to that.

If you remember the titile of the old tool talk post, and google it, you will be able to see the first page, but no pictures. You will need to click on the "Cached" name in the lower part of the searched post. At least this is all I can get out of my 10 year old, on its last leg, yard sale computer. To me it is better than no info at all, and I have used it 2 or 3 times, so far, to find reference numbers, etc. I just wonder how long they will be kept, before they are purged? So, Get-Um while there Hot! Lol

Thanks for that advice!  I'm sure wondering what happened to the old board? Virus take it down or something. I know every time I tried to Google Tool Talk a warning would pop up that it was a dangerous or infected site and not to go there.

Short answer is that my hosting company got attacked by malware and 1700+ domains were infected. Papawswrench and Tool Talk were destroyed in the process.

I miss all the info on differences in models of ratches. I hope somehow we can rebuild it.

In the name of good looking wenches wrenches, I offer the following picture which wags said I must have photo shopped. From there, as I recall it, things went downhill with long but interesting tales of lawsuits being recounted, et cetera.

In a nutshell, there was a dispute between Collins and Coes, a long drawn out court battle that Collins won, but in the process lost a lot of business and Coes went on to be the major player in monkey wrenches.

Was there ever a time when lawsuits/ disputes didn't take place?  Was there ever a time that persons settled things within themselves (in my neck of the woods, that could mean  who shoots first..............not the city "ghetto" group...but,  the country folks).
     I suppose if we rely on who can "shoot first," we're all in trouble. ... unless you're an incredible marksman.  I would love to be able to tell "young folks" that all of the things we fought wars over, land disputes, material ownerships, patents, and disputes between religion were all a thing of the past.
     I would love to be able to tell a child of mine or another that the crazy wars and disputes human kind has had with each other is in the past. But, I guess that's not going to happen. I always have the unanswerable question:  Why do we continually repeat history?  We repeat the awful parts of history, never any good moments in time".
      Well, most of us "strive" to be a better person in one way or another.  I have to beg the question, though, "which person is it that we are supposed to strive to be better then?..."  Yeah, it doesn't make any sense to me.
      It's been a long night,
cheers, bird

I read someplace that law suits were very common in the winters early in US history.  No crops to tend, and time to nurse peoples' resentments.  It was said to almost be a winter sport for Americans.   Seems we're a contentious lot.

I think we're best off if we try to be better than the person we were yesterday.   

My sights used to be higher than they are now.  But I've come to think the best I can try, and can succeed at, is to be a good neighbor, a good friend, and kindly toward strangers.  We may not be able to make the world right, but we can make the world of our lives a little better than we found it.

I agree completely. ... thanks for those words.
