Thanks guys!

I have made to others I'll post tomorrow.

Seeing these are for display and not rolled up consider making the pouch pocket piece from celluloid then both ends of each wrench are visible.  My 2c

That is a great idea and honestly it had not occurred to me at all. I was really inspired by the Blue Point ones and was hoping to pay homage to them one is from the 30's and one from the 40's. I plan to make at least one more and that one will roll and will have ties but that's a user going in the Spitfire tool kit.

That saw design was made by Plomb for many years.  I'm sure other mfg's made them too.

Did you buy them?

Paint them any color you want. Maybe paint the frames crazy purple and the drawers extreme green. It would really stand out then.

I don't know who made those saws but I have seen them in catalogs from several different mfgs.

joker,

Looks like a nice 1960's vintage set with plenty of usable and practical storage.  You may get away with a quick scrub and some fresh lube for the slides.

Go for it.

The builder is going pretty quickly and this small space is my store room and shoppette.  The scaffolding went in today and the walls went higher.

  In a couple of weeks I can start building the doors.

  It measures 1.5 by 4.5 m  and has a big window in the wall.

It all depends in the part I need and how fast I need it.

Usually I try to bundle up a bunch of parts and save shipping at Rock Auto.

$50 for pads an rotors and ($19.99) shipping.

$50 for just rotors at Advance Auto

Another $40 for pads.

Yup, best way to fly!
