ABC Wednesday - A is for Antique Wrench



A is for Antique Wrench.............



an old antique wrench against a red background



It may be a bit harder to use than the modern day wrenches, but with a little oil to grease its rusty hinges, the strong teeth hold tighter than any new wrench on the market today.

Constructed of solid metal, it has accomplished many a tough job throughout its life.

And there are still many jobs left for it to do.

It is sitting on a red toolbox that is filled with modern day tools, and this one stood right out at me when I slid open one of the drawers.

My husband just cannot part with it - no one discards a tool as good as this one just because it is old.

So it continues to reside alongside the shiny new ones, more secure in its future than any other tool in the drawer.



This is the fourth round of ABC Wednesday. If you would like to join in please visit this site for the details.

  5. Old tools are good tools, as they've already stood the test of time! (Just ask my hubby, who has every old tool invented since the Industrial Revolution!)
