Kraken's corner

Mon Feb 18, 2019 5:55 pm

After collecting more and more of Herman's tools and spare parts, I found myself constantly pulling everything out of my undersized tool box to get that one part. Or emptying out big tubs of unused dive gear. I drove all over town looking for a used five drawer tool box. Then I went to the star of hope and saw this big four drawer filing cabinet. The wheels started turning.

How about a good photo of that old drill press? It looks about as old as mine, and very similar in shape.
The older I get the better I was.

I guess the drill press can be in the set. It has modified enough of my gear.Image

But I really wouldn't feel right about sharing my old drill press without my old lathe. If the lathe gets jealous....Image

The Bless-ed Myford...
- What better for a vintage diver than the classic Myford lathe. Man, that's a piece of historical precision and beauty all in one package. Thanks for showing it.
- Yes, I have to agree my collection of tools and parts is also hard to manage. I have them in a dresser with 6 shallow drawers. But that isn't big enough anymore so they'e in plastic bins, and boxes that I hide in the closet... So no one will know of my CLUTTER. :oops:

Very similar to my old drill press! It's been in the family back to my grandfather's working days, and I'd like to know how old it is. At a young age I learned the importance of securing small work pieces.

I got mine at a garage sale. The motor burnt out right after. I see you still have a motor comparable to the age of our dive gear.
