I still need a lathe and Bridgeport, but I was able to fabricated some new hinge bracket supports and new hinge pins from steel rod. Got the oven door back on and can use it again. The cold weather is forcing me to get these little jobs done lol

Nice work, Troy, that's a pretty range and worth the effort.  

Looks like you have a pretty nice collection of things, care to show some more pics?

I had to do a good job, its in Mom's new basement kitchen! lol! I have so many "things" I'm just glad I have a former 1954 grocery store to have more room. I'll post some photos of random things.

Thanks for the pics - I'd be dangerous with a whole grocery store to fill.  Love that floor.


That's a nice Weber grill & cart, looks to be in good shape.

I love the floor too...

Some tiles are bad, especially the ones that were under a row of shelves. But it was so dirty when I got it a year ago, ran a Minute Man floor scrubber over it all twice and really did a great job. It's mainly for my 13 classic cars, but there is an older original building connected to it with a basement, hardwood maple floors, think grocery store 1900 style. That's where I am putting the appliances and other things for now. I still need to repaint, keeping the 50s colours of course and other things organized.
My grandparents bought that Redwood Weber grill new in the 1970s, they only used it twice, because they didn't want it to get dirty lol. That generation was great, keep things new forever. That's also their 1976 Monte Carlo they bought new, think you can see a bit of it in the snow blower photo, grandma left it to me because I always did the work to it.

Chrysler too! Your place is hooked up I'll say.

The '67 Chrysler belonged to the owner of the grocery store, last plate is dated 1989, he died in 1991, that thing was in the garage all that time until I bought it and pulled it out with a chain and my truck this past August. It cleaned up well, mint interior, not bad at all, 50k miles original, I offered the family $500 and it was mine, think I did ok on it
