Steampunk Weapon or Sawmill Tool? You Decide

Steampunk Weapon or Sawmill Tool? You Decide

There are saws that look dangerous, and then there’s the swing saw. Take a look at this bad boy. Just a big old honkin’ exposed blade at the end of a swing arm. Guards? We don’t need no stinkin’ guards. It’s the original iteration of the radial arm saw, popular at sawmills among people who aren’t fazed by big, spinning death blades. Awesome restoration, as usual, by Hand Tool Rescue.

Everybody Loves a Clean Drill – This Is Commonly Known

Everybody Loves a Clean Drill – This Is Commonly Known

Props to you, good sir. This drill used to make a dusty attic look like a five-star hotel room. But then, you gave it the ultimate drill-makeover to beat all drill-makeovers. Now it’s clean enough to do dental work. To congratulate you on your drill-cleaning skills, I shall introduce you to my dentist and let him work on my cavities.

You Call That A Shovel? This Is A Shovel.

You Call That A Shovel? This Is A Shovel.

I want one. No, check that, I want three. I would empty my entire bank account to get my hands on one of these babies. Just think of all the yardwork you could get done. The weeds never stood a chance. The potato-chopping majesty of the combat shovel rules all. You can use it to trim your toenails, chop down a tree, or bludgeon your enemies. The Chinese army shovel puts the Swiss army knife to shame. And Chinese army uniforms are 17 percent less goofy than Swiss Guard unis.

Maybe it’s not the shovel itself that got me hooked. I’m sort of a sucker for infomercials, truth be told. I’d buy a snowcone in February if it had advertising with that John Wayne-ish soundtrack in the background. As long as operators are standing by, my wallet is in danger. Say, I wonder if this juliennes anything. I’d buy anything that juliennes stuff. I don’t even know what that means, but is sounds nifty, doesn’t it?
