Woodworking Forum / Estate sale leftovers
« Last post by moparthug on July 28, 2020, 02:03:24 PM »
Estate sale find, end of the last day where everything was half off or better. Got there literally as they were closing up, gal said everything left is dirt cheap, what doesn't sell goes in the dumpster. Did a quick run through of the house and garage and saw this Skil drill attached to a Babco jig saw attachment. How much I ask? "That? That's all you could find?" she said. Yup, just this, I like old tools. How about a dollar she says. Got it home and it works perfect, of course.  :smiley:

I made a game effort to argue but two things were against me: the umpires and the rules.

I believe it came with Smith torch regulator sets.  Ur right, quite common.

I don't know where that wrench came from, but I broke the jaw off a cannon plug pliers (similar to a channel lock) in -40F weather.

General Discussion / Tecumseh 2 stroke home well drilling rig.

This is a well drilling rig for the homeowner. The engine is a 1974 Tecumseh 2 stroke. It has a cast iron frame bolted to the engine with a tube on each side to guide it up and down and a small pulley on the top to raise and lower it to add or remove sections of drill rod. It has a gear box under the engine which I believe is to slow down the output speed and increase torque and a  large brass fitting to attach a garden hose to pump water down the hole to flush out dirt and cool the drill bit. I got this years ago and my late friend Okie Custer got the drill rods. I use to see ads in the back of Popular Mechanics magazines for these years ago. I believe you can still buy them.

Appears they were made during the 60's - 70's.

Over the years I have had a lot of the top wrench in the first two pictures.  Made in the USA, Drop Forged and no sizes.  The second wrench in the first two pictures is identical except for the size and matches another wrench in my collection.  However, in the second picture note the F-123 on one end.  Lastly, the bottom wrench with "Smiths" on one end.  I had never seen this type wrench with a name on it and I have had a lot of them.  Any comments.

God be with you and yours.  I'm more or less on quarantine as someone in our small church tested positive.

Super, Super, unlikely you will make such a Smith score again.
