Hello from Western PA
« on: January 14, 2014, 12:52:35 PM »
This neck of the woods is Steeler Country. Although they had a pitiful season I am a diehard fan. I work for a Lumber Co and run into quite a lot of odd tools. We live very close to a thriving amish community that repairs and still uses many old tools. Some of which I have never seen before.  My dad was an avid junk collector, to him it was never junk. In fact he had some very valuable items that we sold at his estate auction that I would have thrown in the trash. This is one reason I have began collecting. Along with getting older I have realized things of the past seem to work a whole lot better than today's cheap china made stuff.

Well hello anyway
Adam

Welcome, Adam.  It comes down to the old adage; one man's junk is another's treasure.
"FORGED IN THE USA" myself.  Be good to your tools!

Hi Adam, welcome from Florida.  I grew up in Clarion, but left a long time ago.  This is a great site!  Hope you enjoy it.
