It appears to me that more and more people are waking up to the fact that the things they pay good money for and expect to be able to use for years and years are getting tired of finding out the hard way that most everything made these days is plastic junk with a very limited life span by design.
Coleman Campstove Model 5427. Been through 3 generations of camping & hunting in my family & has seen over 50 years of use. BIFL!
My 1964 Art Deco Craftsman Circular saw, wooden box and original steel blades (blades can be re-sharpened)
My Dad still uses my Grandpa’s Dewalt MBF Radial Saw from 1957 (I think). It’s installed on a workbench my Grandpa made as well
With the current and grim looking economic forecast looming in everyone’s thoughts lately, I expect vintage durable items like these to start becoming more and more valuable and have actually seen the prices for such items jump up appreciably in just the last six months on places like Craigslist and EBay.
I watch these things.
