Phenomenal Soderfors Swedish cast steel anvil from 1922 and weighing 605lb .
Marked with the WAY trademark, this was the importer into the UK, William Alldays of Birmingham.
This anvil was a special order for the old Midland Railway Locomotive works at Derby...
Fortunately I was able to save it from the scrap...

My SpeedAx Metal cutting bandsaw from about the 1930s. They don’t make them like this anymore. Can you believe I pick this up for $250. Invested about 200 in bearings and brushed it with a paintbrush. One of the tools I will never sell. #vintagemachinery #metalbandsaw #madeinengland #ottawa#ottawapremiercraftcenter #wadkintemple

About two years ago my friend @john.lavoie gave me some T&G cedar he salvaged from inside a shed many years before. He said it cost him a number of wasp stings.
Thanks John, made a great countertop!!!

It's alive! Complete with perfectly timed sound effect from a brief thunderstorm today. Took a lot of work but it's running just like it did in 1912! These drills are a lot stronger than a normal column drill, their shape allows a ton of pressure to be put on the work and they are designed to go really slow for cutting steel. You can see how well it works at the end, drilling through inch thick plate. Still dealing with a bit of spindle run out but nothing I can't fix Now that I've finished this I can finally finish my hacksaw for the shaper, then it's back to glass tools! Really neat to restore a tool made in Los Angeles, too. The stories it could tell! #machining #metalworking #antiquetools #vintagemachinery #drillpress #oldtools #machinist #vintagetool #camelbackdrill

These beautiful machines started it all. Without them I couldn't print my fun pencils and greeting cards. My vintage Kingsley hot foil presses. Aren't they purty? #vintagemachinery #kingsleyhotstamping #hotfoilprinting #customprinting #personalizedpencils

This weekend and next sees steam fair events in the local area. Wonder if this will be exhibited as part of vintage display?

Yep, we really do make each custom notebook by hand, we; print, collate, stitch, trim threads, fold, press in the book press, trim to size, round the corners and smooth the edges. This week it’s a reprint for bespoke stationery label @clare_bernadette on the sewing table and soon to ✈️ out to stores across the country. ⠀

middle of the restore. used @evapo_rust to do a majority of the work - from what I can tell it's an iron chelator that works like molasses to take the rust without harming the base metal. Had to machine some new parts, and fix old ones, including making a new piece for the base. I really like working in 100 year old equipment - the quality of the metal is much better than modern times. #toolrestoration #antiquedrill #machinetools #machinist #rustremoval #drillpress #vintagemachinery #camelbackdrill

if you've been watching my story this month, you know I've spent a good chunk of my free time working on restoring this antique camelback drill press (named for its shape) made by the Los Angeles Machine Tool Co sometime around 1912. Here's the before photo, the thing was totally rusted over and every part was frozen stuck. Base broken off too. Still, I saw the potential - especially for 50 bucks. #drillpress #antiquetools #camelbackdrill #vintagemachinery #metalworking #machinist #antique #toolrestoration

My new studio setup. Thanks to the lovely lady who originally owned my vintage sewing machine. The cabinet is huge and makes a great printing and sewing cabinet!!! #whereispendmytime #studiospace #vintagemachinery #hotfoilprinting #vintagesewingmachine #sewingcabinet #vintagestyle #etsyshop

All parts are back together! Now it's just a lot of adjustments to get it dialed in, which will take a hilariously long time as I have no idea what I'm doing.

Just realized I forgot to post my new toy at work... needs a cleanup, grease, and (probably) tires. This is the easy one to get running though... we also got a 36” Buss planer. That thing makes me feel like a lawnmower repair guy trying to work on a semi. #Tannewitz #Buss #bandsaw #planer #owwm #woodworking #vintagemachinery #tanny #heavymetal #castiron

Pearn-Richards boring, facing, and milling machine. Boring a Mikado Cylinder Casting. 1886 George Richards and Co started to build patent universal horizontal surfacing, boring, milling, drilling and tapping machines under licence from Frank Pearn and Co. They were advertised jointly by Frank Pearn and Co and George Richards and Co.
By 1912 Pearn-Richards patent universal horizontal surfacing, boring, milling, drilling and tapping machines were the main product of George Richards and Co.

Solid Red Oak Corner Cabinet ready to begin finishing this week with an "Early American" stain followed by a few coats of polyurethane. Also in the shop this week I rebuilt some of the garage storage for more functionality, and added some small lumber racks. Next on the docket is a small walnut side table, a refinish job on an oak coffee table, and a collaboration with @cz_woodworking on a reclaimed pine mirror for a pool house remodel. After all that is said and done I have 2 farmhouse tables, and 4ft circular kitchen table in the planning phase. #woodworking #woodshop #maker #diy #festool #customfurniture #customwoodworking #finefurniture #finewoodworking #prowoodworker #owwm #vintagemachinery #workshop #lumber #art

Well I was gonna use my Speedway drill to shoot this since it was also from the 50’s but it decided it wanted to identify as a smoke machine today. The trusty Black and Decker is still ready to do work though. Who wants their stuff buffed our with a combined 160 years worth of equipment??😬😜 #buffer #vintagemachinery #blackanddecker #craftsman #drill #hotrod #custompaint

Hmmm, I have a handful of awesome painter friends but who should this little gem go to...🤔 I don’t know much about this Craftsman sander/buffet drill attachment but I’d guess it’s from the 60’s🤷🏽‍♂️ Either way it was to cool to pass up for the price #vintagemachinery #craftsman #buffer #painter #custompaint #automotivepaint #detailing #hotrod #hapapicker

The free scroll saw has a select-o-speed speed reducer. I’ve never seen one but I’m glad I stopped and grabbed the saw.#selectospeed #vintagemachinery #deltascrollsaw #freestuff

Finally got the shop cleaned up enough to get back to work..kinda. Putting the stand together on the 1950's @deltamachinery 10" band saw and I do this thing that nobody notices but me. When I was little I remember reading about a car built by @jdkustom (I think) where all the bolt heads were facing the same way...on the whole car! It was such a killer detail. I try and do that on all my resto's. It's no show car but, for me, this is my little version. #showcar #johndagostino #norcallegend #carshowlegend #details #restorer #restoration #vintagemachinery #vintagepowertools #delta #homecraft #tablesawpimp #woodworker_of_insta

Due to continued requests, I will be making another batch of my redesigned tension kits for vintage Walker-Turner band saws. I am now offering kits for BOTH the 14" & 16" WT saws. These are great saws, but the original springs are worn after Decades of use and, in fact, were limited when they were new. No modern spring will fit the original screw, so I redesigned it to accept an extra heavy-duty die spring. This can put the recommended 15,000 PSI of tension on a blade up to 3/4 inch wide. The thrust bearing incorporated into my design (16" kit only because of space limitations on the 14" saw) reduces friction and makes turning the handwheel even easier. The screw, spring, and thrust bearing are all made in the USA. Direct message me if you're interested. #OWWM #vintagemachinery #WalkerTurner
