Hey Guy’s, I buried Both of my Wife’s Parents and have A lot of tools from her Father. He was a Engineer and was Very Smart. Worked for United Airlines for 50 years and had a couple of Patents. Check out this tool,what do you think it is made to hit? I have never seen this hard plastic before? Check out how he made it.

Took home my grandfather's old Great Lakes No 85 micrometer last week. There was a box full of really nice old Starrets but I didn't dare to try to get them through airport security.

I used my plastic hammer yesterday to install a headset but with the poly or whatever being old that one may crumble or split if you use it.

Is the head made from lead?

The shaft is Steel and I dont know if that is Lead on the Head? I thought someone might know more details on it? It is the same Plastic as the 70’s skateboard wheel. It look’s homemade,or he fixed it over time?
