I turn a Nut into a tiny Adjustable Wrench
In this video I'm turning a stainless steel M20 nut into a tiny adjustable wrench. All three parts are completely made out of one single nut. First I turned the thread and the hexagon away on the lathe. After cutting a slit into it I was able to open it up with the help of a torch. A few heats later I had a very straight and flat piece of stainless steel. I first went then on the milling machine and milled the whole part to the final width of the wrench. I then cut of a piece with the hacksaw to make the body out of it. With a tiny t-slot endmill I was able to mill the t-slot very nicely with a very low feedrate and a lot of oil. After milling the square hole and drilling the deep 2.1mm h...

Antique Two Handed Cleaver - Restoration
Views 2.6M3 months ago
In this video I'm restoring a very big cleaver. These cleavers are also called „splitter“. They were used by butchers before they had electric saws to help their work. There are a few characteristics that make it very obvious that this is a cleaver: the very thick blade and the big angle on the cutting edge, the hole in the front to hang it on the wall, the very long handle to hold it with two ...
Rusty Deadlocked Vise - Restoration (the 3rd)
Views 1.3M4 months ago
In this video I'm restoring a very small rusty and deadlocked Gressel bench vise. Its jaws are just 80mm wide. My friend has found this tiny vise on the steel waste and I thought this would be cool for a video. On first sight it was only seized and had some additional holes. When disassembling I also quickly realized that something on the half round part was not right and after sandblasting I a...
Antique Headphones with Broken Electronics - Restoration
Views 2.9M6 months ago
In this video I'm restoring a pair of antique German headphones. I've found these headphones at an online auction for $30 and I thought they look pretty cool for a restoration project. Unfortunately they didn't work anymore. I measured the coils and three of the four were broken. That fact put this little project to a whole new challenge. It required a ton of research to completely understandin...
1930s Desk Lamp - Restoration
Views 4.1M8 months ago
In this video I'm restoring a very stylish German desk lamp from the 1930's. This model is called „Vitalux Type G101“ made by „Osram“. Vitalux lamps always had UV bulps. They were advertised as healthy lamps back in the 30's to get your vitamin D at home. My friend has found this lamp at the local junk yard. I really liked its design, so I bought it for $25. To be honest I first thought this sh...
Early 1900s Electric Door Bell - Restoration
Views 6M11 months ago
In this video I'm going to restore an antique german electric door bell. I've bought this door bell from an online auction for $45. It was in pretty rough condition, but it was still working, kind of. What I first saw as a quick and easy project turned out to be a really tough and time consuming challenge. Remaking the broken copper part needed a lot of trial and error until I have finally mana...
I built a trick Lighter - Will it work?
Views 6MYear ago
In this video I'm going to build a lighter completely from scratch out of solid stainless steel. I have this idea from another Clip-Share video. He has built the same lighter, I just designed it a bit different I remember when I first saw his video of this lighter, I really liked the design and wanted to make one myself. I have reached out to him and asked for permission to copy his design, I'm...
1895 German Book Press "Alexanderwerk" - Restoration
Views 7MYear ago
In this video I'm going to restore a very rusty, broken and completely stuck antique german book press. After a bit of research I was able to find out that this book press was made by Alexanderwerk in 1895. The disassembly was quite tough. All the threads have been very rusty and only got loose with a lot of heat and penetrating oil. The feet and top plate had rivet connections. Removing the he...
Antique Firefighter Axe - Restoration

In this video I'm going to restore an antique firefighter axe. I've always wanted to restore an axe since the beginning of my channel, but I've never found a cool looking one. But then, all of a sudden I came across this beautifully designed firefighter axe and knew immediately that this will be the one. I've found it at my friends place, he took it home from the steel waste and sold it to me f...
Antique Seized Adjustable Wrench - Restoration
Views 5MYear ago
In this video I'm going to restore an antique adjustable wrench. My friend found this wrench at the steel waste and I bought it from him for $10. It was rusty and all movable parts were completely stuck. The jaws seemed to be in good condition. I had to soak the whole wrench in rust remover for one day to get it unstuck and I've put it right back into the rust remover for another day after I co...
Antique Italian Coffee Grinder - Restoration

In this video I'm restoring a very unique looking antique italian coffee grinder. I recieved this coffee grinder a few weeks ago as a gift from a subscriber from Italy. He sent me a picture of it, asking me if I want it on Instagram and I said yes immediately. I really liked the unique look of it and its design. At first I thought this would be a very simple straight forward project. It would s...
Broken Rusty Oldtimer Scooter - Restoration
Views 19MYear ago
In this video I'm going to restore a very rusty and broken scooter from the 1970s. I've bought this scooter almost two years ago at an online auction for $40. I really liked the look of it, especially the design of the aluminium casted wheels. I knew this one would be a very challenging project because of multible reasons. I knew I need to replace the tires and handles, but I had no idea back t...
Antique Rusty Cleaver - Restoration
Views 22M2 years ago
My friend has found this rusty old cleaver on the steel waste. I really liked the unique look of it with the hook instead of a hole to hang it on the wall. As christmas holidays were just around to happen, I knew I had to pick a project that I have all the material ready in my shop, because everybody was in vacation. So i choose to restore this cleaver. The disassembling was done very quickly, ...
Antique Hand Cranked Hammer Drill - Restoration
Views 38M2 years ago
It was in spring this year when I picked up this beaten up antique hand cranked hammer drill. My friend has found it on the steel waste together with the german „Weltrekord“ ratchet screwdriver. The condition of the drill was super bad. It was very corroded, had a lot of missing screws, the handle was in very bad condition and the crank was bent so much you couldn't even make a full turn. That'...
Antique Rusty Pruning Saw - Too Broken to Restore... I Make a New One
Views 2.7M2 years ago
This old rusty and broken pruning rip saw was sent to me by a follower on Instagram. He was on a mission to clean the Swiss Alps from trash. They removed around two tons of trash in total. At the Albert-Heim-Hut, which was built in 1918, he found this old pruning saw. It must have been digged into the ground for decades. It was in a terrible condition to say the least. The handle was missing ha...

    The reason why I pay attention to this restoration channel is that: I also haven't seen very many old hardbound and paperback books getting restored. It's very rare to have a book that has a viynl plastic cover. I also haven't seen any old black viynl plastic records and tape cassettes getting restored. It's other items getting restored.
