My partner designed and machined the stand and holder from solid billet.

He's really great.

This customer has one from a WW2 Japanese ship about 5' long worth about $100k!

I have my own collection of antique SAE wrenches hanging in my shop.
Most of these were in tool kits that came with new cars or tractors back
in the day. Got some of them from my father's old tool box and some were
given to me by my grandfather.

I remember when this was on the local news. We didn't get to see this much though. Got a little snow today, about an inch, just enough to pack down with the tires and make it very slippery. :D

For some reason the antique wrenches made me think of a sportster transmission. :dunno Apparently they were still in service at least through 1984.

My Bahco wrench has metric marking while all my Crescent are SAE.

I have a Stanley 6'' adjustable in my tool kit for 10 years. On one side it's marked 6'' on the handle and has a scale with 1/16'' markings and on the other side it's marked 150mm on the handle and has a scale with 1mm markings. :D

Jim, on that same not, the old farm house in my Mom’s estate has a four screw in fuse box servicing the entire house. After evicting my baby sister and her boyfriend I found that the 15 amp fuses had been replaced with 30 amp, yikes.

Paul, everyone knows that if you replace a 15 amp with a 30 amp fuse it's going to last twice as long.:doh

It is not mine, but I have updated the wiring on several old houses built in the 50s or 60s to pass current inspections. In most cases had to replace the entire main panel, all wiring, receptacles, and switches. Too old to crawl around under houses anymore, so I don't take those jobs now.

That looks similar to the plane that carried our ABX freight back in the 1990's. (Ours had twin blade variable pitch propellers)

Any idea which vessel this is?

Andria Doria.
On 25 July 1956, while Andrea Doria was approaching the coast of Nantucket, Massachusetts, bound for New York City, the eastbound Stockholm of the Swedish American Line collided with her in one of history's most infamous maritime disasters. Struck in the side, the top-heavy Andrea Doria immediately started to list severely to starboard, which left half of her lifeboats unusable. The consequent shortage of lifeboats could have resulted in significant loss of life, but the ship stayed afloat for over 11 hours after the collision.[1] The calm, appropriate behavior of the crew, together with improvements in communications, and the rapid response of other ships, averted a disaster similar in scale to that of Titanic in 1912. While 1,660 passengers and crew were rescued and survived, 46 people on the ship died as a direct consequence of the collision.[2] The evacuated luxury liner capsized and sank the following morning. This accident remains the worst maritime disaster to occur in United States waters since the sinking of Eastland in 1915

Yeah, donkeys will attack coyotes or dogs. They chase them, bite them, stomp them, however they can get them. The farmers and ranchers put a
couple of donkeys in with the cattle, goats, and sheep to protect the young animals from coyotes or stray dogs. Donkeys might look slow and peaceful
most of the time, but they are very fast and will attack any dogs or coyotes that get in the field.

I ran Senor Stock Light with a Margay Concept. My son started with yard karts when he was about 8 years old.
I gave him the Margay frame when he went up to Rookie Class. 1/8 mile banked clay ovals.

It's called a brace, as in a brace and bit. I've used them a lot in the old days.
