    Well fall is here. Its cooled down some and time I usually start cutting wood. I just bought a new echo timberwolf saw this year but I have my great grandfathers old mac 10 10 auto. There is something about cutting with an old saw made completely of metal. I snapped a few pics. I like looking at old saws and axes or any old homesteading tools. Lets see what yall have got. 20171002_183025.jpg 20171002_183045.jpg

    I enjoy restoring old axes. A couple months ago, I scored this cedar shingle hatchet for $3 at the flea market. 20190908_140257.jpg

    Turned it into this....

    Made me happy.

    I've got these two I'd like to restore for sentimental reasons. My theory is one was used as a wedge, hence the damage.
    The double bit has a stamp but I've never identified it.
