Virginia Toolworks

Virginia Toolworks Sales, Preservation, and Historical Reference for Fine Vintage Hand Tools... with a love of God, country, guns, trucks, and whiskey.

Founded in 2008, Virginia Toolworks originated as a dealer of fine vintage hand tools (primarily hand planes). Since then it has grown into a repository of information on the history, use, and preservation of hand tools, both vintage and modern. Please visit the main web/blog site at virginiatoolworks.wordpress.com. The Virginia Toolworks page serves to support the blog, build traffic, and provide a place to have a little fun. You'll find not only information and articles about vintage tools and woodworking, but tools of all kinds, as well as topics and posts that I find interesting - anything from vintage aircraft to firearms, and conservative values to bizarre things I've seen. Enjoy!

Continuing with my salute to the 75th anniversary of the D-Day cross-channel invasion of Nazi occupied France over the week leading to June 6, we have arguably the most important piece of equipment on the two American beaches— the en bloc clip for an M1 Garand. Ever try to load one by hand? It takes a bit of finesse! John Garand Invented this en bloc clip loader to speed up the process. When Rosie wasn’t busy riveting B17s together, she was shoving down on the handle of a Garand clip loader!

Picked up this old Camillus BSA knife that was found in a parking lot, rusty and deformed from being run over. Since I had nothing to lose, I decided to take a shot at restoring it. Getting it apart wasn't difficult, I cut the pins with a jeweler's saw. Once apart, everything got a good cleaning and the steel parts a de-rust.

I soldered on new pins for the covers, and since the original covers were in such bad shape, I decided to replace them with Sambar Stag. With everything aligned and ready, I assembled all the parts. The new pins were cut and peened into place, then sanded and polished.

I think it came out pretty nice. Peening the pins made all the tools much tighter than they should be, but they seem to be loosening up some with use. It will be some time before I mess with stag again, but I'll take the lessons learned and restore another pocket knife at some point.
