AWESOME !   ;D

It seems like no one gives a crap about metal, in any form, as "art".

Ian at Forgotten Weapons has an excellent video on Gold Damascene, but other than so called "Reality" shows like "Forged in Fire" there isn't much out there on  methods of metal embellishment .
It isn't just a gun thing either.
If it can be made you can bet some one some where wanted a fancy one.   ;D

  I worked with a guy years ago that had a large Snap-on tool box in his spare room with nothing but those limited edition  gold plated sets.He passed away a couple years ago,I wonder what happened to his collection.

Some years ago I got some Craftsman gold plated wrenches.  It during a going out of business and I thought I was retiring and wanted something to remember the old Sears by.

Sears.  Just a real shame they are essentially gone.

I hope you realize that I posted that link as the most ridiculous and pointless embellishment I could think of   .   ;D

Yeah, but I had to do it anyway.  I have like 3 wrenches in a little wood case and 5 sockets.

It looks like I could sell them on eBay and do well....

All my Craftsman wrenches were grease plated...  ;D  ;D
Thank heavens for PB B'laster, ATF and 3-in-1 oil.  ;D ;D ;D

I have two rolling toolbox stacks of Craftsman tools all bought in the late 80's through the late 90's.
The current Craftsman stuff is nothing compared to the OG stuff. Lowe's carries the brand now and much is now made in Chyyyna and cost three times what the US-made stuff did years ago (the higher pricing is probably to influence folks to by the Kobalt brand which is promoted by Lowe's).

For the Patriots of this country, the Constitution is second only to the Bible for most. For those who love this country, but do not share my personal beliefs, it is their Bible. To them nothing comes before the Constitution of these United States of America. For this we are all labeled potential terrorists. ~ Dean Garrison

When Sears sold Craftsmen there was no doubt Sears was on the way out.  Typical MBA play...guess who gets rich on that one.

Sears, like many large mature companies, started listening to their bean counters as opposed to their founders.  A few decades ago they pulled the specialty tools because the BCs said they took up space, didn't turn over rapidly and showed little profit.   Trouble was, if Joe had to go to a specialty store for a special tool, why not buy the common ones there too?  Result was all their tool sales plummeted.  It was just another nail.

Yep.  The eternal battle between the practical and the bean counters.

Business' almost NEVER fail because of the workers, unless they are Union and price themselves out of a job.
99% of business failures are due to incompetent management.
Look at Colt, bankrupt during WWII when they were arming half the world.
