Hi. I'm new to this forum. I'm also very new to antique and vintage tools. I recently was given a huge box of tools that belonged to my grandfather. Some stuff I was able to date back to the 30's. I will be trying to pick your collective brains about info on a bunch of the tools I have. I am looking to use a good deal of these tools myself, however if something is worth a fortune, I would rather save it as a collectible.
Thanks in advance,
Mike.

Mike, welcome to the forums.
This is all you need to pick mine (and you'll get just about as much...)   :grin:

Just for fun, read this entry and look up some other info on Quackenbush.  Quite a story.
