Very good -- but did the guy pass away, or is it a bankruptcy? It looks like someone was working in the place just yesterday

Yea, there is a very good chance of that. It only takes a couple good buys for me to make it worth my while. But I have left similar auctions with nothing.

 Goodfellow I did notice the ad referred to the guy as "the late".

Thanks Mike --- Yup, totally missed the reference to "the late" Mr. Hyde. Judging by his taste in cars and tools, he would have fit right in on the GG.

Holy cow! The guy had a lot of tools. Most things were going higher than I wanted to pay.  I started to get tired and also was worried about getting my car out of the field they had us park in. The path out was getting super rutty as guys were leaving in their trucks. I left around 1:00 and there still was a bunch of tools to be auctioned yet. Like the 8 inch jaw Wilton 1780 bullet and the mac toolboxes.
  It was a good day. I seen a bald eagle on the way and lots of classic cars cruising.
 
Here's what I got.




When I got home from the auction my fake catalytic converter arrived from eBay for my daily driver. Looks pretty good for $30.







Bolted it on and went to meet some friends at a local brewery for some beers and barbecue.

Just got back from buying some tools. The kid had them listed on Facebook and Craigslist.

And he let me know he was kind of desperate....

Went through it a little bit.








He asked if I wanted the toolbox too. Heck yea. It has some Metric fasteners, a snap On wrench and seven snap On sockets in it.

Those impacts are nice, I have both. Lots of good tools there. You will make some profit on that deal

Sold the Milwaukee set already. It only took one call to make half my money back.

Looks like you did pretty good.
A ton of stuff there.
I'm just a guy in a garage with some tools...

That long Snappy ratchet works real well when you have to torque bolts using an angle gauge. Better than a 24" breaker bar.
Need MAC CH8 1/4", CH10 5/16",  combo wrenches to complete a set
Need MAC CL8 1/4", CL10 5/16", CL26 13/16", CL34 1-1/16" and larger
