article When it comes to collecting antique scale metal, most of us have heard about the history of the items we collect.
However, there is much less written about the artisans who produced them, the tools they used, and the tools themselves.
The following is an edited version of a conversation with Artisan and Maker Brian T. Meehan.
Artisan: My name is Brian Meehans and I am an artist in my spare time.
I am passionate about antique scale and I love it, so when I found out about the scale and tools in the first volume of the American Antiquarian Magazine I was hooked.
How do you find out about this amazing piece of history?
I read the book on eBay and it’s so interesting.
I didn’t know that the tools were so important until I saw the first photo of them.
I was so fascinated.
It’s a great time to discover the history behind these amazing tools.
I bought it in 2011 from a guy who had it as a gift from his mother.
He’s an antique collector who was the grandmaster of the scale he has now and he was a teacher of art at the school.
The tool he gave me was a scale that was a half-inch thick.
He told me it was for his grandfather and he made the scale.
He said, “I used to work in the mills with your grandfather.
You have the scale here.
This is the scale you have.”
I started asking about the tools that he had made.
The first tool I found was a very old brass hammer, a tool that he never had.
The other two were a piece of brass rod that he used to grind the teeth in the scales.
He had them cut on a lathe, and he had them put into a lathed iron.
He was a pretty good lathe maker.
I had a friend of mine that was doing this kind of work.
He showed me this lathe and said, this is a very nice lathe.
I said, you’re the best.
It was the first time I met someone who could make a lathing lathe work.
I went and saw him and he said, I’m going to make a new one, but he wanted me to put it together in the shop.
He used to build lathes, but this was his first lathe so he had it finished.
I brought it to the shop and they put it in the lathe as a tool.
I used to have to take it out to a latheshop in New York and he would make the lathing.
I just thought it was a great thing.
It took me a few months to understand what he was doing.
I started to think about it and I thought, “Well, this could be a great tool.”
It was my first time making a lathage.
I knew that I had to learn to make the tool.
He did it like a lathel.
I learned it very quickly.
After that, I did some work in Italy and it was great to work with him.
He built me a lathen for two hours and it took me about five hours.
I did the lathen a couple of times, but it was not a real lathe because it was made of bronze and the lathes were all made of brass.
After I had the lathages finished, I decided that I was going to go to England to get it, because I had no idea how to make it.
I wanted to do it myself.
I got it from a family friend.
It has an old brass knob, and it used to be used for turning out lathes.
It had an antique handle and it had to be turned out by hand, and I just got it for free.
It cost about $15 to make, and they had a hammer in the hammer.
So I got one and it turned out great.
The next time I was making it, I bought another one.
The second one I got for free, and so I did three lathes a week.
I’m now doing about eight lathes and I do them all by hand.
You can see that I’m learning.
I still have to make some adjustments, but the process has been very easy.
What do you like about this book?
I love the details and the information.
I like the way he gives examples of what he made and how he worked.
I love that he tells me what tools to look for.
I really liked the story of how he made a lathet.
He put a hammer on the lathet and he worked with a saw.
I found this one in a toolbox.
He took a piece that he was going through and he put the hammer on it.
He then made a saw to cut the lathel from that piece.
I think that’s one of the best stories in the book.
He made this lathel for my grandfather and the saw turned out amazing.
I made one for myself a couple years ago, but I just
