Still being too sick from the Santa Ana winds from last week to operate
power tools, I was in my lil shed cleaning out and organizing and wondering
about some of my dads old tools I have and use today. Just have a handful
unfortunately and as much as I drool over and like buying new tools, I still
enjoy the fact that what I still have I use. Decided I needed to start
cleaning up the gunk and gum from an old hand drill, It's a Yankee #1530
manufactured by North Bros. Mfg. Co., Phila., PA. Has 4 different settings.
Plain, L.H. Ratchet, R.H. ratchet, R.H. Double ratchet, and lock. At Bob
Kaune- antique & Used Tools site found a #1530A. Don't know what the
Started looking on Bob's site, was looking for my Skil Std. Duty Dbl.
insulated ball bearing 2 1/8 HP. #576 10 amp circular saw. When I clicked on
the saw page a pic of a hand saw popped up, a Disston No. D12. Wow, the
handle looks exactly like the one I took apart a few months ago. Got the
handle sanded a little, re finished and polished up the brass bolts. Still
have the blade to finish. However upon looking at the medallion it's an E.C.
Atkins, so Have to look further for info on that and the circular saw.
Have an old Bit Brace I need to check out, and usual other stuff such as
files and wrenches. Haven't had to buy a wrench in ages. Unfortunately there
are no planes in the mix. Well, back to googling. Hope the day was a good
one for ya.
