Cool Old Tools


I ran into this 2 minute video about a PC tool collector
http://www.taunton.com/finewoodworki....aspx?id=27045

I especially liked the styling on the 1931 vintage PC model B10 "Dustless Take About" I don't know whether or not that would be classified as Art Deco style but it is similar to a few classic locomotives.

Note the tool prices on the old ads. Power Tools were expensive.
In 1947 half of the families in the US made less than $3,031 a year.
