Do-it-yourself1990

Mitre saw

For cutting and sawing at an angle, the mitre saw is unbeatable. (From the catalogue 1998.)

Do-it-yourself1930

Snips

Sheet metal was, until the early 1800s, an expensive material that only exclusive homes could use. It didn’t become a cost-effective material until 100 years later. But snips, or shears, have been used from the start. (From the catalogue 1932.)

Don’t lose the edge in your work. Sharpen your own tools or kitchen knives with this sander that you can attach to any flat surface at home. (From the catalogue 1948.)
