Pomona Swap 4/15 Edition
« on: April 16, 2018, 11:08:06 PM »
Sunday brought another good day at the swap.

Top left a Snap-on and three Blue Point wrenches, top right an Armstrong Armalloy, a Wiulliams Superrench, and three Billings Vitalloy. A Snap-on ignition wrench set but it is missing the largest 3/8 x 7/16 wrench although a Blue Point was substituted for it. A Snap-on stubby screwdriver, a couple screw starters, another Armstrong Armalloy and P&C wrench. The large screw starter has a screw wired to it becuase the vendor runs into so many who have no idea what a screw starter does. 

As alien as it gets.

Phillips. Confusing since at one time all Snap-on red handles were Pozi.

some excellent finds you picked up.  I'm an all-day sucker for an older Snap-on set of just about anything that's in it's original roll.  along with your other nice pickups, I'd be very pleased to find that stubby screwdriver on any day of the week.

Yeah that's why I asked. I didn't realise they made those handles in red except for pozi. What's the part #?

Nice finds.  Those Snappy ignition wrenches are pricey little bastids if bought new.

Funny thing about screw starters, I sell almost none but use mine once a month or so.  Go figure.  I would think every tool box should have one in straight and phillips

I have several, but only rarely do I ever remember to use them.

SSDP22 but oddly no suffix indicating color.

Ullman Devices still makes several variations of the screw starters and I agree every tool box should have one. I hate to admit but the wrenches were less than $20.



I have several, but only rarely do I ever remember to use them.

I still have a car with points so I use one every time I replace the points or condenser.

I'm glad too.

Is the Snap-on stubby Phillips or Pozi?

So what's the deal with Pozi again?
IIRC one will work on both but the other wont. Like Pozi will work on standard phillips but phillips won't work on Pozi, or vice versa?  I'm just too lazy to go searching the web.

Pozidrive was made to not cam out where Phillips was. I think pozi is used a lot in aircraft not really sure but I've never seen it in any of the cars, electronics or house stuff I've worked on. Not sure about pozi working with Phillips or vice versa.

It's a Phillips part #. Interesting.........

And missing the color suffix is normal. I guess they figure the handle color is enough indication lolx

They're not interchangeable beyond getting by with low torque. Seen a lot of PZ stripped out by people using PH drivers on them. About the only thing I see PZ on is european electrical gear. Can't recall ever seeing it on anything US or asian.

But how did you order it in red?

I have developed a fondness for stubby drivers for some reason and will use one in place of a standard handle if possible.
