Well, with nothing better to do this New Year's Eve, I shot a few pictures. Here's just a quick sampling of the tools in this lot. There are many more, this is just what I could easily pull out for pictures.  Probably nothing special to you regular tool people, but really fun for me!

Now, this has me baffled. No clue what it is or what it does, though I suspect something is missing which would attach to the two screws on the sides.

OK, that's it for now. Hope I haven't gone too overboard with the posts! Happy New Year all!

There ARE a few fun items in there! Heck, you stumbled into a 604! Lools like it has the wrong lever cap (Stanley guy can chime in on that) but still you found a jewel in the rough there.

The pliers I think are pretty cool, and I like the pincers quite a bit. It's not that often you find ones with such a long handle that aren't smithing tools. Lots of leverage there.

The mics a starting home machinist will be all over, and hey you even found a caliper with gen-u-wine Vernier scale on it!

Under any circumstances this warrants a "nice haul!"

Oh, and I think that last item is a grinding wheel dresser, well used. It looks a lot like a star wheel.

I have a Stilson Wrench in my mechanical bag. I love it. It does it job still as a pipe wrench and it intimidates the young farts when I shake it at them, menacingly.

Something about pipe wrenches, I love 'em , big and small, all makers, as long as they're old. Maybe it's this:

gotta love the wrench with the original wood handle. the unknown wheel thing is for dressing grinding wheels.

the bedrock planes flat top sides say it was made after 1911. the lever cap is actually probably original, which would make this a type 10. made from 1933-1941.

link to type study, with reference to original study. this is a condensed version.
