I just visited Antique Alley in New Westminster on Front Street this afternoon… LOVE LOVE LOVE this shop!!
Next time I drop in I will take more pics of the shop.
I literally had a moment when I got my hands on an absolutely gorgeous antique vice grip made by BMC. My wife thought something was wrong when I was drooling over how wonderfully it closes with a nice firm and soft close.
The adjustment knob has this wonderful indicator as well
Every guy has his favorite tools… special tools that he couldn’t part without… this vice grip is one of them
Also picked up this wonderful plane… its nice and solid but needs a fair amount of restoration work… maybe when I come down VHS I will ask for some guidance on how to restore these …
