I put an antique cast iron rivet punch in my booth recently
I went in a few days later, and it was laying on the shelf in pieces. How anyone could demolish a cast iron tool is a mystery. I brought it home. My first effort to get it back together failed, but I went back to it today, and got it reassembled. If I put it back in the booth, I might put a couple drops of Gorilla Glue on it.
My goal is to reduce the amount of stuff I have. I'm not getting what it's worth, but I'm selling it. If I don't want to sell something at a low price, it goes back in a box. Glad I'm not doing it for a living, or even extra cash.
Maybe you can rest up, and try again after that.
and a few other things, I'd sell some of the things that way. I used Marketplace a few years ago. Noticed that there are some people who claim every item, but don't really want to come and get it. It held me up when I wanted to move ahead.
For now, having the booth gives me storage with benefits, and some socializing with people that have the same interests.
Just tired of it now. Too much stuff and want to stop buying.
There is a local on line auction Im going to try. Just drop it off and let it go. Try not to buy anything iffy. Just look for home runs on eBay.
I didn't do anything to downsize for a couple years, then started chipping away. I miss buying, but I can always got through a box or 2 and feel better. lol
tear up an anvil...
Metallurgy added more ingredients to strengthen and flex as time moved by.
not pieces. The body, a spring, a plate and a handle. Between my eyesight and the narrow area that everything went into, I was truly grateful that I got it back the way it was supposed to be.
it really looked like someone took it apart to see how it worked :/ I guess it could've fallen and landed the wrong way.
