Years ago my father was a tool and die maker for Craftsman (yes long before Sears shipped it overseas) and they always had a week shutdown mid summer. Dog days in mid August.

Going squirrel here. Indulge an old sappy memory. In Hs machine shop I had to kill a hammer head. Brought it home to show my dad. He brought it to work and had it triple chromed. Brought it back to school and the shop teacher failed me. Besides a few choice words and a visit to the principles office I got it reversed. OK so now how many of you still have items you made in school 37 years later.

I have four things.
Two lead anvils molded (sand cast) in metal shop and two 12v power supplies made in electrical shop, I was a freshman in high school 40 plus years ago.

Haha. Thanks for clarifying that. I read "kill a hammerhead" and I'm thinking shark.

I have just about all the tools I originally bought. I have my first sets of Husky sockets in my 5er, all my technician tools though i did replace the case in the early 80's, still have my Beckman DVOM and a Telequipment scope. I have all my dads tools when he was a maintenance mechanic/millwright, he drove to Chicago in 1947 to buy Craftsman gun metal finish sockets and wrenches, sizes to 1 1/2. I have way too many tools actually..

I have a set of punches, a hammer, a threaded plate with matching bolt and a set of "vee" blocks I made in machine shop.
And yes, way too many tools.

Closed for Amish hay season.

Here in Missouri there are a few schools in the southern part of the state that close down for a week when deer hunting season starts. It was easier to close the schools for a week than have the parking lots full of trucks with dead deer in them most of the day.... day after day, until the season was over. Not a pretty sight to most, but a necessity for many.
