Member1 Posted November 27, 2014 Share Posted November 27, 2014 Well after doing a bunch of remodeling in the shop last month I had a spare wall that was a little too plain….. that is something that doesn't last long around here. Anyway I decided to hang up some calipers……. in this case about a 100 of them, from less than 2" to over 24" and from the late 1600's to the early 20th century. A few of these have been featured on the Practical Machinist in past years. These range from a huge early rack wing divider to many of the early patents by Fay, Stevens, Starrett and others……… it was a lot of fun to do because it gave me reason to play with each one of them. Some I had not held in years. I think I will enjoy these a lot more than I did when they were just stuffed in a tray type tool chest in the corner of a upstairs room.So this is what you can do when you have a lot of something…….. BTW, I have a similar set-up of hack saws over the bench I do vise work on. Do any of you guys decorate with tools?The way they had been stored…. it will still be pretty full….
