Welcome to Home Shop Supply


This old fella is here more for sentimental reasons than anything else.    This is a drawing made in 1910 as a frontpiece for a book on machining.    Although I'm getting along, I wasn't personally around at that time, but I like old things - such as Craftsman 109 metal lathes.    You must, too!

This limits my activity to a single email and shipping.  Be aware that my illness continues to progress and is noncurable. My very competent typing speed
has been reduced to hunt-and-peck; I will ignore motor skills, memory, patience and communication skills.  I'm doing this at the request of you, my customers,
and will continue as long as possible. I will not seek my replacement this time; one of you is going to have to step up and volunteer.
