    Great Granddads tool restorations.

    I know I have a separate thread for a specific pipe vise but I'd like to document all of what I've been doing for all of the tools I've been restoring in one spot. To start with I just finished restoring this old manual chuck hand drill and I've been making good progress on that pipe vise as well. There's a half a dozen levels I can work on, a couple planar and several wrenches and specialty tools I'll be posting in here.

    Here is that hand drill I was referring to. I should have taken a before picture but imagine it really rusty and without the proper screws for the handle. 20191104_210640.jpg20191104_210644.jpg20191104_210655.jpg

    It looks like this drill was made by the John S. Fray company. They were bought by Stanley in 1909 and these were made from 1909-1920. It still has the pewter bands that hold the middle handle together but I believe the screw has been shortened at some point because the Jaws don't close all the way.

    Ope, quick edit. It looks like the Jaws were not intended to close all of the way based on many others I have seen. So Perfect condition.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
