Russ, use Rondo's links above my links in my quote... For some reason my "quote" links won't open, but Rondo's links do.  :shake

Excellent articles! Once I started, I couldn't stop. The only problem is now I want even more...This is fascinating stuff for anyone wanting to work toward a more period-correct representation. Thanks for making all this information available.

When I come across something like this I stop and think of all the tools I have used/owned and what they meant to me. I made my living working on woodworking machinery. All I had to do was go buy what was needed. These pic's are amazing and a reminder where we come from and the effort put into every day life. I could go on but no need. Thank you for showing them and the words to go with them. I appreciate it. poorboy :applaud
