Well, first we dropped off Craig at his job, then stopped to check on Mom......not a good time....Call button wasn't working....she needs help to get out of bed....so, somehow she now has a Urinary tract infection, too...along with too many painkillers. Got the nurses motivated, then my sister arrived, and really motivated them.... They were working on mom when we left....with my sister playing strawboss.... On the way back home from there, stopped at a store, for a little rust hunting....$9 +sales tax.. A little 8" sweep brace, with a "Bonus" of sorts.. A VERY minty Craftsman 13/16" bit. Got home, did a wire wheel change, and the cleaned things up.. Almost like new? Wonder IF Craftsman would replace it? As for that brace? The only markings I found, were on the chuck.. A Goodell Pratt, from Greenfield, MASS., USA....PAT. Dec 27, 1892. That "loop" is a gear shift. Flip it to one side, or the other, chuck now will ratchet, center it up, and no ratcheting will happen. I think I know where Millers Falls got the idea about the top attachment.. As Goodell Pratt used the same thing. Was kind of a so-so day....and 1-2" of fresh snow..grrrrr.
Who We Are
We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!
Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.
The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.
One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
