Blast from the Past: Vintage Tools of the Line Trade

In the early years, linemen worked without power tools, bucket trucks or modern-day climbing equipment. To preserve the history of the line trade, Michael Glueckert, a journeyman lineman of 43 years, has collected tools, accessories and other artifacts. Glueckert, who has been inducted into the Lineman Hall of Fame, built a special barn on his property to house these special treasures.
