That was a wonderful auction, Andy. The “after” pictures will be great to compare with the tools as they now are.

Very nice. I’m jealous…I love old tools and I love restoring them as well. Looks like you’ve got a nice haul there ;)

Congratulations! I’ve been visiting ebay nightly looking for some tools but haven’t gotten the nerve to pull the trigger yet.

Looks like a good haul to me. You’re doomed now, my friend. Doomed like the rest of us.
