    Collectors show how work was done before power machines By BILL SHEA, Fort Dodge Messenger, IA
    For someone who loves tools, old woodworking planes, wrenches and drill bits aren't leftovers from grandpa's workbench to be gotten rid of as soon as possible.

    Instead, they're valuable clues to the way things were done before power equipment replaced muscle as the force used to shape wood and metal. And for many collectors, old tools are a significant investment of time and money.

    That history and investment were on display Sunday morning during the area meeting of the Mid-West Tool Collectors Association at the Humboldt County Fairgrounds.
