Nice! I've been contemplating buying one from the Saltfork Craftsmen, but I don't really NEED it right now, so it's been on the back burner...

I used to tell people I collect old cars, old tools, old panel trucks, old radios, but only one old lady cause resale isn't very good one them.
So we live on a farm and snakes are around this one is a black snake. Not a problem but it was spring snake was slow, but I just wanted it outside. So I called wife to help chase the snake out of this shed. Just she stomps her feet and I stomp mine it will go outside not into the other sections of the shed. So she says where's the grabbers?  Oh this could be interesting..... So I hobble back into the workshop and get them. I just pulled out the phone a took  couple of pics.
She thinks she is a snake wrangler now! Funny thing she is taking it out by the neighbors road and they come home. Oh it's back in the Foundry shed now. About a 5' black snake.

Last time a snake came in our house, the wife was so scared she had me kill it before we could determine what kind it was. Turned out to be a harmless rat snake.
