I live in a house built in 1923, does that count?

This old Century kompressor huffs and puffs but it still blows.

I still use this brass hammer for light duty gunsmithing.........

This old, graceful Winchester 61 gets taken to the range on occasion. It's a wonderful shooting rifle.

Sometimes new and improved................ain't.
Don't know why I'm lost all the time...
Everyone is always telling me where to go.

New Haven Clock Co. wall clock that's been chiming every quarter-hour and striking every hour for most of the last 100+ years. It was in my grandparents' house and my dad (born in that house in 1915) said he could never remember not hearing it.

I have a 1963 Moto Mower snow blower that I still use. It's a cantankerous PITA, like me, but it gets the job done and it only cost me $75.

I ran a 1973 Simplicity riding mower up until 5 or so years ago when I was given a much larger and faster Craftsman tractor with hydro drive. If the Simplicity wasn't so damn slow and had a larger deck I'd still be rocking it, because the Craftsman is really a POS.

My truck is a 1965 F100. I'd drive a 60s car as a daily if it weren't for the road salt they use here.

My grandma's mixer that was probably a wedding present (early 50's). I still need to finish cleaning it but it's been used a few times already.

In 1975 for my second year of bird hunting, my Dad and I went to Sportsman's Surplus in Spokane and bought a used Ithaca model 37 Featherweight 20 gauge.

Shot some quail with it last fall.

Lots of that around here.

How old do you want it and comparisons to the new ones???? The "new" Jumbo 1905 pat.1906 US made or my new Canadian made "circa 2005".

I'll use whichever is closest but the Jumbo has more punch and better leverage. That 100 years old Douglas Fir is sure hard, nails are hard to grab and pull.

Don't buy the chinee ones......

Have tools, will travel!

The truck is a 95 with about 230,000mi on it and is my daily driver.
The Simplicity Yeoman tractor is a 1970 and is still used to mow the lawn,
and the Simplicity SnoAway snowblower is a 71 or 72 and is still used when we get enough to warrant it.

Made in the 1890's. Still use it all the time.

I can't find a picture of it, but my Lincoln stick welder is a mid 50s model. It actually welds better than the new ones do.
