<snip> I hardly find it relevant whether or not the lathe was available
hundreds of years ago since very few, if any, knockers of that vintage
would be likely to still exist.

Depends, some tools are kept in families for decades, and used. A
for instance is throwing sticks, a version of boomerangs. Passed down
from generation to generation, and still being used. Another for
instance, if I'd gotten the tools I'd been promised by my grandfather,
I'd be using tools over 200 years old now. As is I do use a few that
are around 100 years old, or older.
I wouldn't count on personal property not meaning much to them.
I am not paranoid. I do not "think" people are after me. I "know" damn
well they're after me.
