Rust hunting opportunities are scarce in my neck of the woods, but I did pretty well hitting some yard sales this morning. The total bill for everything pictured below was $82.
A couple of bar clamps at $1 each and a couple pipe clamps at $2 each.
Some chain @ $3.
A box of miscellaneous stuff @ $3. I think the soldering iron looking thing is a wood burning kit.
The plane is a later type Stanley No. 5. The chisel is a Stanley 750. Several of the wood handled screwdrivers are Millers Falls, as is the caliper. There is a nifty little Yankee ratcheting screwdriver. The files appear unused.
Here are a couple of gems. The brace is a Millers Falls Holdall No. 733 8-inch @ $5. It’s in really nice shape and has rosewood handles. The blade on the brass backed dovetail saw is etched Henry Disston, but I don’t think it’s too old. It was $4.
And finally what is probably the prize of the day, two tap and die sets. The Ace brand is in a mahogany box and the GTD brand is in a cherry box. Both sets seem complete. I gave $30 for the pair.
