Punch, brothers! Punch with care!



Here's a small project from the shop before it went into hibernation. It's pretty self-explanatory, so I'll let the pictures do the talking...









Complete, and...



...oiled - it will darken in time and match better.


For me, there is something very satisfying in making old tools happy.

  1. Thanks for sharing and the pictures were enough to show how much detail and care were put into this piece. Shaking hands are definitely a “No No” on this project, isn’t it?

    1. Hey Handi! Good to hear from you! Thanks - I am hoping to start posting more again, but life is full just now and my home shop is in mothballs until I get the new shop building done...sigh.
