Yesterday I posted a topic about a couple of hand saws that were in a bin of old tools that I won at a local auction. At that time yesterday the saws were just the first things I grabbed off the top of the bin. I was at work so I couldn’t spend time going through them… Well last night I got home and went through the bin and was amazed by how good of a deal I got… As I said yesterday I won the auction for 17 dollars. The auction was online and they only had one picture and the description was “Tub of Misc old tools”. I took a gamble and was expecting mostly junk but I think I got really lucky with this one..
Here are a few more pictures of some of the tools I got. The first picture is a Stanley Miter box #116 and the 2nd picture is another miter box made by Craftsman. The Craftsman miter box is really neat. I plan on keeping the Craftsman one. With the saws I posted yesterday and this I think I will be doing a lot more cutting by hand. Seems like I am turning more and more into a hand tool guy as I get these old tools and restore them.
The last pictures are of a Portable Power Tools Inc. Model 250 drill… This thing is in damn near mint condition. I did no cleaning for the pictures. It comes in the original metal tool box and also has the following attachments a a grinding wheel, wire brush, disc sander and two buffing pads. Also has the original instruction sheet. I don’t think this thing got much use at all if any. Plugged it in and it works fine.
I would like to know how old the Craftsman miter box is as I could not find that when I looked online. I did find some info on the drill but have no idea what the value may be. I may be interested in selling the drill.. There was also a power tools inc power sander in the box but I didn’t take pics of that yet… To much to take in for one night…
