    1912 logging camp sledge hammer restore

    I wish I would have taken some before pics as I didnít expect such great results. I soaked the hammer in vinegar for three weeks changing the vinegar weekly and hitting it with a wire brush. I finished it with a wire wheel and just need a handleClick image for larger version.

    As I am finding , In life we begin having the Blissful happiness & the Wonder & innocence of a Child, then fall Quickly, then spend the rest of our lives trying to reach that point where we began ,through Pleasure , Fame, & Materials but Only 'Through true faith in Jesus , can we find Prefect Happiness or true Meaning in our Short lives on this Beautiful Earth filled with both the Light of Pure goodness & The Darkness of Pure Evil.

    wow GA Boy!
    i believe this could be a Klein & Logan based off of the design and they were selling R.R tools.
    This camp was 1912 and fits the era. I found a bit of info as well.Click image for larger version.
