I got a Stanley Claw hammer for my 6th birtday, 37 years ago.

I still have it and still use it.

I have a Sears Craftsman 10" radial arm saw purchased new in 1969 and still use frequently. The only repair was the on/off switch died many years ago and had to be replaced. Great tool.

My oldest and first tool would be a pair of slip joint pliers my Dad gave me for Christmas in 1965, I was 8.

I still use them. 8)

Probably the oldest that I have bought are some Craftsman wrenches that I bought back around 1960. The oldest I have is a '47 delta/rockwall cabinet saw.
