  • Ideal #3 Stencil Cutter

    Well, since we are all trapped in our houses at least I had some time to work on my to-do list. A few years ago, a tool shop was going out of business so I purchased this stencil machine for $50. It was pretty dirty and didn't work the best but with a little paint thinner, elbow grease, sandpaper, and some lubrication it works like new. It is pretty amazing how a machine that was make probably 100 years ago (have no idea other then the patent dates) can be so simple and functional. Probably won't use it much but it goes in the cool department.

    I remember using one of those to mark mobility equipment early in my AF career.
