Quite a wide selection of great tools!

I am very curious about the little curved adjustable. Maker? True size?

Thanks Papaw!

The wrench in question is Mastercraft Maximum brand, the "professional" tool line of the chain store Canadian Tire.

Really nothing too fancy, craftsman quality at best.

I'm a sucker for small, offbeat adjustables, can it be bought in the States?

Here is my main box -- the most often used tools are housed in this HF "krinkle finish" box. I really like it, but it's already too small.

It's a "hodge podge" of makes. 40 years ago I started out with lots of MAC, but over the years have purchased tools that were just plain "good" -- regardless of make.

Top Box:























Bottom Box:





























Side Box:















Specialty Tool Box: 1978 Craftsman (Waterloo)



I'll post pics of that box some other time -- right now I'm tired!!   beerdude

Wow, you got a lot of great stuff Goodfellow! thumbsup

I really like the power hammer that utilises a regular air hammer.  Was that home built or bought?

Definitely want to see more pics of that 1978 Craftsman.   ;D
This car is a pile of crap. Noisy, rattly, slow and underpowered and has a reputation for being unreliable. I want one.

GF, the pics of that craftsman box is the ultimate cliffhanger.  It looks like you have just about anybody would need to rebuild Jags, Sun diagnostic equipment, or anything else for that matter.  Your MAC seal puller, have you had much success with it (Industrial finish, L-shaped with small hook on the end)?

Got the planishing hammer at an HF closeout for $39 because the air hammer was "broken". It was a display model.

I removed the barrel and honed it for just a few seconds with a brake cylinder hone and it fired right up.  Heck for $39 you can't build it for that -- not even from scrap. The foot operated air controller is worth that much alone.

Steve -- That's part of a 3 piece set that I bought off the truck back in the mid 70s. They have been excellent tools -- pulled countless seals with that trio.

@ GeorgiaHybrid

What brand of Crowfoot Wrenches do you have? Are these the big ones? I'm in need of a 32mm crowfoot and am having a hard time finding an online vendor selling one.

Thanks,

Jay
