Stevens Walden Inc.
« on: September 21, 2011, 07:45:00 PM »
This was inside a glass case, way in the back.  It was being used to hold up a doll for display.

I liked the look of the box, thought it would be nice to store some of the small crap that seems to infest my big tool box.  As it turns out, this is now the nicest handle and spinner I have in 1/4 drive.  Yay.

Everything in the box is SW, looks like a few sockets are missing.  Amazing everything else is still there.  Seems like the rod would have been the first to go.

I think they must have saw me coming though.  Had to pay $5.   :o

I inherited the same set from my 95 year old neighbor when he went to the home last year. I will have to check on the contents for the breaker and spinner knob though. I know my box is crammed full of extras like a ratchet that never came with the set originally. My box is even the same color too.
You boys better hold on cause i'm gonna have to stand on it!

oldtool,

The SW set is sweet, complete or not.  And all the pieces are well preserved.  I think $5 is a reasonable price for a piece of history.  Enjoy it...

Thanks for all the support guys.

To tell you the truth though, I was kind of kidding about $5 being too much to pay.  I was fully prepared to go up to fi fitty if necessary.  I would have had to get the doll thrown in for that kind of outlay though...

They really do seem nice.  I'm planning on using them.

Fins/413:  I'm not sure what the time period on these would be.  I wouldn't mind knowing for sure myself.
