Whatever you do, don't post your town or a picture of your house on here. You never know who is lurking and might needs some real cool tools.

I have a power drill, two soldering irons, a food processor and a blender

When I ran the local Soap Box Derby races, I kept all my tools low tech, screw drivers, wrenches and hand saws, instead of a power drill ,bits, sockets and a sabre saw. Never had a tool stolen and it proved that you could build a derby car without power tools.

From my experience, vintage bicycles are easier to restore than vintage woodworking equipment. Parts are equally expensive and difficult to find.

My newest vintage equipment is from 1967, a Delta drill press and the oldest is a 1938 band saw.

One of my circular saws is a Craftsman from 1958 with case and instruction. My Dad's.
One Compound miter saw was my Granddad's, 1960, also Craftsman, all iron.
I have planes from the 1880's.
One table saw is also a Craftsman from 1960. Direct Drive, dead silent, very dangerous.
I have Granddad's power drill, 1948 Sunbeam Drill Master, I didn't count it as it is put up.
It works fine. I also have the instructions and parts list for it. A new armature is listed at
$1.25 and a completer set of gears is $.95. "Please include $.25 on all parts orders to cover
shipping and handling."

It would be easier to list the power tools I don't have.

dremel
orbital reciprocating saw (B&D)
orbital sander (ryobi corner cat)
drill (off-brand, chuck is messed up from too much concrete drilling, but works OK)

don't have room for much else. Sometimes I borrow a circular saw from a dude down the street.
