There's an awful lot of great, OLD school tools on that site. TOO COOL! I too have become a collector of Snap On. As you may well know yellow is my favorite color and a while back J.A.F.E. found me a trio of THESE at the swap meet. I just yester, acquired yet another, which is the yellow bit driver. I have to get more bits for it, but it is another addition to my yellow Snappy collection!!! I'm oh to proud to have these. (What's more, is that I don't have to break them in myself! Any roughness has been worn in and contoured just for me- in the words of AC/DC "It was love at first feel!") I like owning used tools as a rule, but these are especially rad! (The pictures do them no justice.) I wonder what their story is, where they've been, and what projects they worked on, built, and fixed. Oooooooh man, I'm geeking out right now! Thanks, Stevo!!!!!!!!!!! (AKA: J.A.F.E.)

PLDG,

It called off topic.  No big deal.  It's easy to get cought up in SO hard handles. And, I note that one of your yellow hard handles (bit driver) is the early hard handle style.  My favorite. Finding one of these in good working order is getting harder and harder.  Good find on your part.
