And The Plot Thickens
« on: March 19, 2017, 04:06:55 PM »
So I went to a flea market and I found this socket set. Let me know what you guys think. Hopefully Lorne and Rob see this they might have some insight

Nice set , what`s the vintage?
There is a very fine line between a hobby and a mental illness.

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

Going off Alloy Artifacts; they have a No 13 set which has a 355 ratchet from about 1918-1923. I think mine is a No 16 (its pretty faded) which I think means I would have a few more pieces than the 13. I think I'm missing an extension along with a few sockets, plus some are split. I have some loose Mossberg sockets that will hopefully help me fill in the set and replace the broken ones

So a few sockets are marked with the Mossberg M so I was thinking it was a mossberg set, then I found this. This is a Larson Tool And Stamping Company marking, oh my.

Enlighten us on Larson T& S por favor?   That doesn't sound familiar to this gringo.

One often finds mixed sets, as when they split the sockets they would pick up others from wherever. If you need specific Mossberg sockets let me know, as I have 50 or more mixed.

The only thing I know about Larson is they are like Mossberg a Massachusetts company, again thanks to alloy artifacts. I wonder if they did business together as it seems unlikely that a Canadian would have had both sets laying around and made a full one, but its possible.

Ill have to figure out what sockets I need, thanks for those who offered
