It's cute but no room in shed for a wafer thin biscuit!

They must have made a range of these type drill accessories for balsa wood work.... :-)

Will dig up the other one maybe we can get them together.

Actually now I think of it it's more like a scroll saw type thing.

Will try and find it.

That saw was powered by a 1/4" electric drill Dave, my dad's got the complete kit at home, there's a circular saw, (that also bolts to a stand to use as a bench saw) and a sort of jigsaw (more like a scroll saw, but with a wider blade) and a little wood lathe, that came with the stand, which is a bench top deal. I think there was a pedestal drill attachment too?

My dad built our first house in 1951 and used that little gadget for a lot of the work. I think he's still got the drill that went with it, along with a heap of other tools that he bought new when he built the house, next time I'm down there I'll take some pics. ;D
I was feeling sorry for myself because I couldn't afford new bike boots, until I met a man with no legs.

So I said, "Hey mate, you haven't got any bike boots you don't need, do you?"

I've enjoyed looking through these pics. I don't have family of my own that I know of but lost my father in-law 2 years ago (didn't know him long). He was an old cowboy that traveled the national rodeo circuit so we had 3 barns to go through and they were all full of snakes and stuff. My sister in-law just wanted to throw everything in all the barns and house away. We drove home right after he passed and rented a trailer to bring some stuff home because we got pissed with throwing old cool stuff away that he had used. We drove back the next summer only to find that someone had broken into the house and robbed us of all the fun of going through the rest of his belongings that we weren't able to get to on the previous trip. Everything was ransacked. In the main barn there was stuff just strewn about. We rented a dumpster and threw away so much stuff it was disgusting. I did bring some things home though (including hand tools). In the early 1920's his mother owned a bar down on 14th street in St. Louis. One barn had glasses from that bar in it along with some of the beer signs and tobacco goods. I use one of the tobacco boxes to hold recipes on my bench for flies that I tie. I brought this Falstaff sign home. It's a real shame...he liked to buy stuff but didn't take real good care of things so the barns were all dilapidated and most of what was in them was in bad shape.



I'll have to get some pics of the tools I brought back.

yeah get some pics up mrbreeze,we never know whats out there till we see it,great to see you suffered through the entire thread,you are now one of us!
Here ya go Dave. I haven't gone through my stuff yet but I did come across this little jewel the other day. I'm thinking there won't be too many people that will get this one so I'll give a hint. I don't know if UHaul is worldwide or not but I would imagine anyone in the US has heard of them. I worked for them as a mechanic briefly in the early 90's and this tool came from them. If nobody gets it in a few days I'll post the answer.

The pic isn't too clear, but I'd say it's some sort special tool for a security fastener.  I see what looks like a pin in that second pic.

OK ...I see nobody wants to guess except for 333. You are right in a sense....security. It is the key to open a cover deally that goes over the speedo cable connection at the transmission.It's to keep people from unscrewing the speedo cable and stealing milage on the rented truck. It's like a real thin walled socket that fits a bolt down in a recessed hole that holds the cover on the speedo cable connector. If a guy knew what he was doing he could still reach up under the dash under some of the older trucks and disconnect it at the head. I have no idea how they do it nowadays with electronic speedos but I'm sure they have something.

I am such a boy scout, I would not even guess people would try to steal miles from rental truck.

IMHO now it is done over GPS.

Hell yeah!!! If you needed to rent a truck and drive it 500 miles you could disconnect the speedo at 20 miles and bag 480 free miles!! Last time I checked it was like 69 cents per mile. That would come out to $331.20.

Some telephone wiring boxes used a similar thin-walled socket for security, referred to as a "pedestal key". (a pedestal is a foot or so square that sticks up about 3 feet off the ground.
I never would have guessed an anti-odometer tampering device?
On the subject of speedos, anyone heard of a "tattle-tale"? My dad told me these where fitted to the speedo cables of trucks to record maximum speeds and such. I have what I believe to be one of those units.

When I first started driving big rigs in the mid 70's the logging trucks I drove had them. Tach o graphs they were called.

I know truckers in Europe still use them.  Records, speed and brakes they take. 

The police have the right to inspect them and there is a way to cheat with a magnet.

This version appears to have used a paper tape wound around a spindle like camera film??

Thats the one Scottly but I remember the round card. They probably had different versions of it . This was in 1976 up in Humboldt Co. California.
