Yes, that's Petrified Wood from our area of Utah. Enjoy seeing your posts, nice to see tools that have been used. I have quite a few neat items from Tasmania, a
friend there and I exchange at Christmas.

Thanks. Interesting. I've petrified wood on our place, one huge piece like a log.

I'll grab some more tools from the workshop and post them.

Interesting and very nicely photographed.
What is its use? Guess more than measuring diameter of a cartridge.

Been on a screwdriver hunt after camming out of some fasteners. Updated the old JIS B4633 cross blade (Phillips type) drivers that I use on the vintage Celica and other vintage Japanese cross screws while on this hunt.

I used to have a full set until my son 'borrowed' it :rolleyes:

This thread is a good topic, bit slow to take off
I'll grab some old woodworking but for now, shearing tools
Old hand shears, still in use

One of my main customers when I was an IBM mainframe hardware hardware engineer was R.A. Lister diesels. They made the famous, long lasting stand alone small diesel engines, but they also made a load of sheep shearing tools and they were exported all over the world. I wonder if these shears are Lister's kit.

They also made a load of cast iron garden furniture. They went out of business years back due to the lack of the engines. They were made so well that they just didn't wear out!

I hadn't realised that the Lister mark still lives and flourishes!

John we certainly have Lister gear here, including shearing machinery.
I'm not sure they made hand shears though
Mine don't bear that name.

Lister stationary engines have a solid following here.

Some tasks were better served with a bit of power. As much as I like the manual screw drivers running 60+ screws by hand is a bit slow. My old drill driver battery packs had gone on permanent vacation in the down time. Picked these up a handful of days back and they were good to get some photo practice with too.

I've been using some of my bigger stuff on the scale model glider I'm building and had to produce some holes in some awkward places. They are pure tungsten drills that I bought years ago. The box is about 3" square and it holds 50 drills including a couple of rotary rasps and a couple of milling bits. All have 6mm shafts and fit my Dremel a treat

I have been led to believe that they started out in Silicone Valley across the pond and once they were blunt they were resparpened and sold off. They weren't cheap either as they cost me £15 :eek:

This is the fuzelarge of that model. A DFS Habicht 1936 German gull wing glider. It will have a 4m wing span.

That's impressive. One big model.
Do boys toys grow as we age  :p

Do you need a licence to put something that big into the air?
