Thumbs up Re: 49 Antique handengraved tools -J.RUBIN & P.Basthard (Paris)

All I can say is
I am an idiot over antique tools, even those I am learning on or don't know how to use yet. Honestly, I am just an idiot for any hand "TOOL", which my husband now says is a dirty four letter word. But the antique tools are the best ones to have, (for me) & swap meets and tool sales bring out the little kid in me. This is just a beautiful set & I congratulate you! Sometimes, when using and old tool it almost feels like you can tap into the former owners residual energies as you use them. It's a fantastic feeling.
It was humorous to me as I was setting up my home studio again after our recent flood. I brought down my toaster oven (for baking FEMO clays), a pasta machine, (again for work with FEMO), a small refrigerator (for storing PMC and certain stone adhesives and etching acids) and we installed a sink (for just about anything I needed), then I also have have a crock pot for "pickling" and much more. My husband accused me of wanting to live down there and said I was ready to cook all my meals in between metalsmithing. All I would need is to install a toilet, and he said if he threw me down some gruel every now & then he might never see me again, although I would be a happy camper!
He is mostly right, I do need a downstairs "powder" and some occasional food. I assured him that I would indeed miss him occasionally, as well, and he is welcome to visit anytime! LOL

A Very Nice set of gravers! Congratulations on your find!
