I never knew there was a good version of this, I don't have all the parts now but I had an old dollar store version of this.

It came in a little red plastic case that looked like a hip roof tool box, and it had those very shitty brittle translucent plastic handles that you could swear were made of hard candy.

It seemed like a Okay concept that might come in handy for someone, but never thought there might be a legitimate version of this out there.

Ahem,,,,,stuped is spelled stupid.
And for your age,,,you are not stupid,but extremely smart on tools!!
I am always impressed with your posts.
There I go again, thanks for the correction.

I found this image online of an INDESTRO 1/4"Dr set that my ratchet and sockets could've been from, but condition and picture quality make it hard to read.


I'm just interested in having the ratchet, 2" extension, and all of the 6pt sockets if I can figure out what they are.

I've got doubles on the extension a well as four of the sockets which doesn't help me one bit, I guess they're spares.

Those sockets are 3/4" Wright sockets and that is their normal plain steel finish.  The one that is 1-7/8" you can see the S-360 and a 44 date code.  Probably part of a WWII Air Corps socket set.  I agree, too, that it appears to be a 3/4" S-K ratchet.  Not a bad price if you're in the market for a 3/4" set.

I vote the seller is just retarded.
The ratchet, which is said to be "tight and new" looks to be a 3/4 SK and in no way looks new. It might be tight because it is rusted solid.

The ad does not say Wright, but the sockets are. If I was a betting man, seller doesn't know what he has, or typed Wright in to his phone and it auto corrected to Whitworth...

When you have that shit in your garage chances are great that you are a gold chainer so there is no chance of you doing any work to actually spill something.

It will be interesting to see what tools are used in North Korea.
But with a nuclear option. this regime could be melted back to slag iron.

Definitely not a saw project for the average homeowner with a fireplace.
I traded in all my 4 old Stihl saws that quit running to my Stihl Dealer and got a NEW ECHO 18".
He only carries these 2 brands.
This is all I need these days.

Sorry to hear about the lasting effects from the fall Harlan. It obviously won't get better with time so I agree with doing everything to get it fully checked out.
