Nice Score! Nothing like bringing home an armload of treasures, and adding them to your shop. It’s the right thing to do.

Sweet finds. I picked up an atkin saw handle today in excellent shape we may need to talk about.

Brace a POS, from Japan. Didn’t make it to the shop. 7/8” Round is one from the ‘wants’ list. Hammer so cute, and at .50 couldn’t turn it down.

Thanks, Fellas!

Whenever I go to a car boot sale where I live, all they seem to have is a box of old spanners. Good haul there Smitty.
