At a yard sale today I picked up a Millers Falls v-line home maintenance repair kit, so it is called. The 22 tools are encased in a blue panted metal box that can be hung on the wall. The kit includes a block plane, 2 hammers, a punch saw with 2 blades, awl, hand crank drill, screwdrivers, nail puller, sliding angle, a small envelope with mounting screws, an adjustable wrench, as well as a few more items. Researching the internet, I have found no info on this. Most tools, as well as the case, a a moderate amount of surface rust on them. Has anyone ever hear/seen anything like this. I’ve seen other brand’s kits, but never one for Millers Falls. Thanks.

Hi Aaron: I have the blue metal Millers Falls box, but until now I’ve been stumped as to what the 22 tools were. There’s no list in the box, and the clamp holders for the tools aren’t labeled. I’m in the process of cleaning out my parents basement after 50 years of pack-rat accumulating. I stumbled across this box while clearing one of the many shelves. Fortunately the box is in almost pristine condition. No dents, just a small varnish drip, and a 2 inch section along the top edge with some chipped paint and some resulting surface rust. I also found a bunch of misc Millers Falls tools in another box – way more than 22 – so I didn’t know which of those belonged in this set. (Dad passed away last summer, and I never knew this set was in the basement, so I had no info source to check with.) It’s a dry basement, so while a couple of the tools are a bit dirty from use, none of them are rusted and most are in “like new” condition. I did an internet search for more info on this box and the Millers Falls tools in general, so it’s lucky timing that your post is only two days old. If anyone knows what the storage box might be worth, please pass that along as I plan to post this on ebay. Thanks, CB-1963.

I just picked up one of these boxes too (empty). I’d love to see a picture of that box loaded with tools. Aaron, how about it?

Stanley made a metal tool set about that size in their Defender (homeowner) line that morfed into the same box but under the Handyman line. Tools were more or less the same basic outfit but moved around in position and size – perhaps what they were trying to dump. Anyway, finding a catalog that shows it is your best bet. I have a Miller Falls full line catalog but it is pre-war and no kits are listed.

Oops, should have written Defiance, not Defender. Dyslexic fingers you know.

I think you have a Millers Falls #10 Deluxe Tool Kit if the box is 19.5 high, 16 wide and 3 5/8 deep. I just got a 1962 Millers Falls catalog and it lists such at kit and well as the tools in it. Anyone interested in the list?
