Cheers, Brother!

That a very nice collection. Looks like you’ve got it covered pretty well. And a carpenter’s hatchet to boot!

Hmmmm...that shade of red looks a little familiar.

Here's one I'll submit only for the reason that it was invented,patented and manufactured by my grandfather back in the 50's I believe. You used to buy them is a box of 10 or so,cant tell as the original box is falling apart.

Its not automotive related so I'll give some clues. Think sheep and wool and the shearing shed.

Docc, you were a great host, I had a great time going to the Spineframe Raid. 

Your "interest" in savage weaponry, I am sure is quite normal, friend.  Buddy.  Very normal. You're a normal guy.

I don't know anyone more normal than you.  Really.  Sorry we didn't toss daggers.   We'd had a blast.  You're a really normal guy.

Docc... I must say, is not normal. No doubt... he's not an ax murderer. But... after several meet ups, many beers (maybe whiskey) and chats, both bikes and general philosophy, I'd have to label him 'extraordinary'. An A-lister for sure on the human scale.

High compliments, y'all . . . :drink:

I have more (non-automotive/non-axe-murderer) tools to share. But they're kinda skeery-as-hell, too . . .  :huh:

(no sheep have been involved. I promise!) ^_^

Here is the control panel from my 1972 Fischer X-ray machine. I decommissioned it some time ago, but just could not throw this panel away. So, I built bulbs and a power supply to make it into "shop decor."  A "tool" repurposed . . .
