Strik Ill definitely try to find some videos and pictures of that. I went to Pittsburgh and they have some trolleys that go up the hill side. You could go through the maintenance and where the inner workings were. It was really cool and from the link here you can see the age of the equipment http://duquesneincline.org/index.php?page=tour-information
And then this year I found out I could have gone on a blast furnace tour  frustratedx Ill have to go back some time

Anyway on with this past weeks haul;

I grabbed these for a buck a piece


This tool box I had to buy for five bucks because its made out steel from where I work lol They did a good job bending the steel to make the lid sit tight



A Nice 1/2 Husky USA set for ten bucks


A cool old made in Canada Mastercraft Soldering gun


A friend from the board gave me this sweet Mickey Thompson banner, Thanks Gregg33!


I found to Snap On Canada Philips drivers for a buck a piece, and traded for a Par-X Canada 13mm Wrench


A Proto USA Metric Nutdriver Set for $15 bucks


A Mixed box of Craftsman USA and import, a couple Snap On sockets, and a Bonney Extension for $20. The Craftsman USA 1/2 metric sockets and ratchets were awesome to get.


This stuff was all given to me by another friend on the board, Thank you very much Brophy!
A St Pierre DOE, three Mossberg DOE, a WW sliding T, and a Canforge DOE


Two really nice Kraeuter DOE (these must have been expensive when they were bought), a OK Champion S wrench and A Britool offset DBE


And this is my score of the week. Ill be working on completing this as well lol more pictures to come, and beer for Mr Brophy


Any clue Who MHCO is?

That big Mossberg set will be a challenge, as over the years they made the set the items in it changed.  So find a picture and duplicate it. thumbsup2

Here are some finds from a couple weeks back.

This stuff is from a used tool shop; the screwdrivers are a Robertson #3, a Will Philiphs, a Robertson #3, a Challenger #3. The Pliers are Proto LA slip grip? Proto Canada slip joint, and Snap-on Vacuum grip


Wilde USA tongue and groove pliers, and a Craftsman Canada strap wrench. The weird thing is on the package it says made in England, I got this at Princess Auto


From the flea market Two Stanley Handyman Drivers in a perfect shape, and a Stanley Plus 100. A nice Cluthe #2 robby, Ratch-o-Matic Canada #2 robby, A Klein Long shaft #2 robby and a Robertson #2. The little side cutters are Xuron USA


The Mac Brake tool, the Gray 3/8 ratchet and the air fittings came from a yard sale for $10. The screwdrivers came from restore for a total of $1.50 and are as follows; a Will #3 robby, a Gray #00 robby and a Xcelite Philips that looks brand new


Let me know what you guys think

Coolford, I found a detailed description on Alloy Artifacts I'm going to follow, hopefully I'll be able to complete it.

Love the sheet metal box, and the Proto LA slip grip plier looks like a #234 wrenching plier. Only made them for a couple of years - they have amazing clamping grip! Late 50's to early 60's I think.

the little side cutters may be gate shears. used for cutting the casting sprue off of lead castings. I have some that look real similar that I used when making lead weights.
Started with nothing and still have most of it left.

That could be, I thought they looked handy to have and are USA to boot

Heres some stuff I found a couple weekends back at a car show.
A nice Gray Canada pry bar, a Snap On 3/8 ratchet, a Gray West Germany screwdriver, a Gray 1/2 ratchet and an ETF Ball peen hammer


This Blackhawk tool and the Mac pick set came from the swap meet as well.



Same with this 24'' Mac pry bar



I found this stuff at a thrift store. All the Combos are Gray and they cleaned up nicely. The line wrench is a Proto USA, the Ratcheting DBE is a Gray USA 15 & 17mm. The Spud wrench is a Gray Canada, and so are the two 1/2 Ratchets. The no 2 Robby is a cluthe and the Insulted screwdriver set is a Wera. Not bad for just under $40


I found this today at the flea market; two will standard drivers and a McKinnon Canada Rail Road Special Adjustable (looks a lot like the Gray I found)


And I grabbed this for my dad for his work bench. Five bucks for a Woden England, should clean up nice

I thought so too, should serve my dad well.

I was up North and went to a yard sale. For  $1.50 I got these three drivers. A weird Cluthe standard, a Scrulox green robby and a Canadian made Philphs.


I grabbed a Cluthe Canada oil can? Its plastic lol for a buck I can't complain.


And finally I stopped a yard sale and spent 7 dollars. A Jett drill bit set, Some Craftsman USA router bits, and a Greenfield tap and die set.
