The computer that I'm using to type this message is a damn antique, relatively speaking. Slow as hell but it still works to browse web and send e-mails.

And me too but sure beats the heck out of using it as firewood. Had to point that out to a friend a few years back.Birdseye too.... Way too late for use once split...!

No patent date on my best wood clamps, looks like rock maple and couldn't pass at $30.00 back then. May have to use them soon, my 1898 rocking chair is loosening up a little and then I also get to use the very old (1910-20) Canadian made Stanley "Yankee" screwdriver, if just for the kick of using them fine old tools.

Oooops.....that modern tool is out of place there.But it is hanging off something much older.

Here's an old Prentiss vise I still use. It was made around 1903 or late 1890's. I haven't been able to pin it down exactly. I love this old stuff but I hate to say that some of the "old stuff" that I have... I bought brand new.

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......

Man, that Jumbo made me go out to the garage and check mine: it says Giant, No 7. Newer than yours, I think, but looks virtually identical. I inherited mine from my late father, who had been a carpenter/construction worker for over 40 years. He retired about '67 and I've had it since probably '87 or so.

I live in a 113 year old house.

I'm nearly done with the restoration/remodel.

Pretty much my whole existence falls into the category of "old stuff". It's fun seeing all the pictures in the thread, particularly of stuff I have an example of (Winchester, tools, Schwinns, old house, etc.) Notably I still use this regularly, the same age that I am and source of my screen name thanks to other ADV inmates:

I looked into dating my "tube fed" Cooey, not easy as they don't have serial numbers and very little on the net on Cooeys. Canadian guns so...

I hope it shoots as nice and straight as mine. Just like when Grandpa bought it in the late 50's, that is a few years before they were bought by Winchester.
