The Wrench Guy

Postby JAB » Wed Dec 18, 2013 10:59 pm

Do you see an Arcturus 723 in there? How about a Williams 28-S?

Wish I were so artistic! He has time & uses it to promote good!
The wrench guy.. I'd hate to be in his backyard during a lighting storm...
How cool is this guy?
He lives near Boort Victoria, and does it all by himself from a wheel chair... So,
don't ever be afraid to follow your dreams!!!
Here is what he starts with.........................

It is amazing, but, I wonder how many rare and desirable wrenches were ruined in the process?

That was kind of my point when I mentioned the Arcturus 723 & Williams 28-S. The rest is all cut & paste from the original e-mail I received.

At one time I had considered making a mailbox post out of all the "wrong" or damaged wrenches I had collected & couldn't re-sell but then reconsidered when I realized that I'd be ruining many perfectly good tools & possibly even rare & unknown (to me) collectable tools. I donated them to a re-sale shop that Habitat For Humanity uses to re-sell old tools & housing construction materials rather than store them forever or ruin them.

There's also a guy ("artist", he's called, but I think the word "craftsman" is more appropriate) that makes furniture & other "artwork" out of old firearms in the same way this guy uses wrenches. If I find that e-mail again I may post that in the firearms category.
