My grandfatther was a woodworker for his entire life. After be passed away last year, I was fortunate enough to inherit his Delta woodworking machines from the late forties to early fifties. Once I had the chance to rewire and refurbish most of the machines, I finished up the new workshop to give them a fitting new home, including the 75+ year old workbench.

It's great to see your grandfather's legacy live on. Too often the old tried-and-true tools and machines get cast aside and deteriorate into uselessness. Nice work in preserving this collection.
