Title: Another new guy in south central PA
Post by: John Hough on October 01, 2014, 10:10:19 AM
I just found this site, really like the discussions, and decided to sign up.  Here's my cut-n-paste intro: I'm retired from the Air Force, a history buff, and amateur wood/metal worker. I also collect and restore old wood and metal working tools and machines as a hobby. My woodworking interests include period, shaker, and mission furniture, wood turning, and carving. On the metal working side I mostly make tools and parts for old tools and machines. I have a Galoot background (7 years hand tool only) but, partly due to age and partly 'cause they're cool, also enjoy and use machines in my wood and metal working.  Looking forward to talking tools in the future.

Welcome!  While you all are here let me ask:  I'm looking for a hex drive socket set made in Coudersport, PA marked either CURKO or GRAHAM.  Also any other tools marked CURKO.
