I was garage sailing today, as there was a town-wide garage sale here. I was happy to find these old tools. I'll clean them up and bang some metal with them. The old hammers might have enough texture to transfer an interesting pattern. If not, I might try etching a design into the face. I'm certain you'll see some new pieces this summer made from these old tools.
Rings polished and ready to mail. I am stopping early today so I can go to a local gem, mineral and fossil show. I'm hoping I'll come back with something ancient to show you.
