Sunday Stills Challenge – Hand Tools

Our challenge from Ed this week, “This weeks challenge is hand tools, I made it hand tools to give it a bit of a challenge. Bonus points for really old tools.”  I thought yeah! I knew what I wanted to do right away.  We headed into the nearby small town of Sweetwater where the main attraction is their antique stores.  One in particular where Chuck always gravatates to a booth with old tools.  Eureka!!
