Pomona Swap 12/3 Edition
« on: December 05, 2017, 02:36:49 PM »
Last Pomona swap of the year. Didn't get much but I'm quite happy with what I got. My main interest is ratchets - Snap-on, Blue Point and Par-X in any size, selected Blackhawk and most 1/4 but ratchets have been pretty thin the last year or so and what does up is usually a little rich for my blood. The small stuff is a secondary interest but it has been turning up a lot lately.

Plomb 1/4 ratchet, Duro Chrome adjustable, Craftsman mini pliers, Craftsman magnetic lead holder with a carbide point replacing the lead, carb throttle tool, Greenfield #338 ratcheting tap wrench, unmarked screwdriver and some small Snap-on wrenches.



The Plomb ratchet I believe is from 41 if I read the date code correctly. It is a female ratchet with a drive plug.





As alien as it gets.

What is a lead holder?

Lead, as in lead pencil.  Mechanical pencil if you will.  Used in drafting and engineer drawings would be one way to explain it.  Instead of lead, it has a scribe point.


As always Jafe, nice haul.  Gotta agree with UB, the ratcheting tap handle is nice.  I am surprised I don't sell more of them.

A1 quality tool and bloody handy as well.
There is a very fine line between a hobby and a mental illness.

Does the need justify the want ? Or does the want suffice?

Exactly - it uses a standard drafting lead.

Thanks FF and I'm surprised to hear that - they are quite useful.

How does that carb tool work?

It's used on the linkage for the throttle to open it to a set RPM. I think really for AC work but it's handy in more general use.

Thank you and they are nice to use even when don't have restrictions.

Those Greenfield tap handles are great. The whole lot is great.
The carbide scribe is useful for tracing out a part on a blued surface and then cutting it out on a mill or bandsaw.

Thanks Phil I figured that's how it was being read as in lead pencil and not terminal lead.

Just had to ask to make sure lolx

Can you give me a close-up or two of the working end? Maybe I can make one for myself if I can figure out how it moves.

More like the mechanical pencils ancestor. I remember using lead holders back in the '80's but I don't recall what for. Mostly used mechanical pencils. Switched to CAD in the early '90's so it's all ancient history now.

The magnet makes me wonder whether JAFEs aquisition might actually be a, replaceable point, scribe rather than a lead holder shrugx

Happy to - here's the working end.





The shaft is flexible although I suppose it's not really necessary.



Here it is on a on sidedraft carb just to show the general idea.

I don't use taps very often but I could see how a ratcheting handle would be handy.
