1960'S OFFICE ROLLING STOOL CHAIR

Today it's my new stool...  (okay no jokes)
I needed something when I'm working at my workbench so I can sit down.
I stopped by a garage sale last week and there was a pair of these... I only needed one so I got this one.
I'd say it's 1960's for sure.  Old Office furniture of some type.
I have a "matching" little version of this I use at my office desk.
Welch Office Products of San Fernando, Calif.   That sticker along dates it.
all adjustable and all metal... just like I like it.
super easy to move wheels too.  No plastic junk.
I love old chairs like these.  They last forever and are super comfortable too.  It's Vintage Gear for Guys!

SEARS CRAFTSMAN AUTO CREEPER WITH ROL-EZ-E WHEELS

Today it's a cool item I picked up this weekend.

I've wanted one of these for awhile for oil changes and various other times when that big piece of cardboard just wasn't cutting it.
I'd say this Creeper is probably from the late 50's or mid 60's.
All hardwood.  Looks like oak.  All metal, and a cool naugahyde head rest.
It really doesn't look like it's been used much.  Actually if you look at the bottom the wood is discolored, as it's been sitting upright for decades.....
An example of the bolts used to hold it together.   I love old tools like this.   Plus it will save my coveralls from having to be washed so many times...   It's Vintage Gear for Guys!
