These are older than vintage... ancient excavated Native American.
A welder from 1976 is fairly vintage ... right? Planning on learning some skills in retirement that result in something other than ones and zeros. Lincoln Idealarc 250 AC/DC welder.
That 8th grade smartass in me wants to respond with...."Thankfully my wife does"
Here's one of my retirement restoration projects. A hand crank American Scroll Saw from Delta in the rough. About 1921 vintage. Not too hard, as I've cheated and started cleaning and lubricating. One accepted modification is to add a belt and motor. If I can find one, I might actually use it.
Very cool! I've been watching a couple of these lately.
The wife was gracious enough to buy me this little air compressor. Ended up needing some work but I really like the chuff-chuff-chuff sound.
That´s a chasing hammer, typically used by gold- and silversmiths.
This 10” Boice-Crane scroll saw followed me home from a local auction yesterday. Too cute to leave there at $35. Robbins and Myers 1/4-HP motor and a repurposed sewing machine stand. 1929/32 (only catalogs that show the smaller 10" model with the rocker arms).
~80 years old 80kg PFP-anvil, Stock- or Northern German Standard-version.
Wolf´s jaw tongs is way newer, purchased new myself, as well as the watch.
These heavy war horses are almost indestructible!
Is that a Linde gas management on top for inert/active gas or just an inverter?
It is the former. It came with the fittings, but not the bottle sitting next to it for some reason (an estate sale find). That phase of my welding education is on the back-burner for now.
Ha, cool, i learned welding with such tractors, ESAB LTG400..., about 35 years ago...
Nowadays I just run an ESAB LHN200 from time to time, almost an oldtimer as well.
Here’s a petrol brazing torch. Got a second one somewhere around in my workshop , but currently no pic on hand.
Some pix of vintage tools from the garden shed...
Bench and vise approx. 60 years old.
Some boiler maker´s hammers, opprox. 70 years old.
Second gasoline brazing torch.
Will be picking up this online auction win on Saturday. A 1940s Duro slow-speed bench model 14" drill press.
Old butcher shop meat cleaver dating from around 1875 - 1880's
Thought I’d ask this question here, hopefully someone either knows the answer or can point me in the right direction.
I have what was my grandfather’s (or maybe even his father’s) antique Craftsman drill press. I can go out to the garage later and get a model number and maybe a photo. The outboard electric motor spins up to where I can hear the centrifugal switch click, and then it slows down again until the centrifugal switch snaps back and then it will spin up again. This will happen over and over until eventually it gets past that point and spins up to speed. If I try drilling, it might slow down and get into that cycle again. I know that I could just replace the motor, but I’d like to repair the existing motor if I can to keep everything in the right era. Any thoughts? Thanks!

@Farace You might ask over on OWWM.org or https://www.facebook.com/groups/owwmfans/
Nice heirloom DP!
Thank you, that Facebook group in just the short time since I joined has proved very helpful. Among other things, it was pointed out that the motor was never meant for vertical operation, as evidenced by the orientation of the oilers! So now I’m on the lookout for an appropriate replacement motor, hopefully of similar vintage (which I’m told is 1947-49). Thanks again for the help.
I ended up rehabbing/de-rusting/cleaning/relubricating my grandfather’s 1947-49 Craftsman benchtop drill press. Haven’t gotten the appropriate motor yet, so I reinstalled what was there until I get the right one. Not a museum piece, but a lot cleaner and more useable. Here’s the result.
