Is there any one of us who isn't at least interested in old tools?

I've already downloaded turn-of-the-century Starrett and Brown & Sharpe.  The tools and machinery that were used to make our rifles.

Wow; thanks for finding that, uscra112!

I’ve come across a few chisels and gouges made by J. B. B. Addis & Sons, and noted that Clyde Baker said in his Gunsmithing book that they are “REAL TOOLS!”  Finding a catalog of them is a real coup!
