nine4gmc,
That is a P&C 5/8" combo wrench. PM me if you're interested in it.

My haul from the flea market today,

a set of Proto Socket from 3/8"- 3/4"



Cornwell tire iron with a 11/16" wrench head on the other end, looks like a odd ball but couldn't pass it for a quarter.... What is it exactly?




And a couple of Plumb closed wrenches, a Armstrong wrench and a Proto wrench,


I got all of this for $2.75

Just a little cleaning and they will look good.

Any help in identifying that cornwell tool is welcome!

Well did some more garage sales etc today and got some SK stuff. But when I got home I checked craigslist and found the style of tool boxes I have been looking for. Got these three mac/matco boxes. I did a part trade so I have about $300 in them I think thats not to bad. But I will redo them I think.

I checked out a Craigslist ad today and came home with more than I should have. I only went out to look at a swivel head ratchet but ended up with all this crap including my biggest vise to date.

They are locking clamps. Good to use for welding.

I have one of those clamps as well, and have yet to find a use for it. I usually just end up grabbing the c-clamps or vise grips, instead.

Clamps are De-sta-co 482s. They work like vise grips in the sense that you set them up once for your material thickness and then they can be quickly clamped and unclamped repeatedly and apply the preset amount of pressure. They are great for repetitive tasks.

The vise is indeed a columbian. A few more pics here.

Nice score on those Mac toolboxes, Patrick! You'll like them. I have one like the box on the left.

Has everybody stopped going to sales because of the weather?

Today was one stop that promised thousands of hand tools. There was a great selection but the prices were called from the hip and way too much. I passed up 2 vises becasuse they were priced at 75.00 and not worth the money.

I was able to score a few Plomb wrenches and a complete set of 1/2" plomb sockets. The ratchet is a Proto 3/4" The pullers are Plomb and Proto too. I have a few other items but i didn't get to take pics of them yet.

Ill go back on sunday and see what kind of deals, if any, there are to be had. My ass still hurts from this morning

Well went to a big swap meet today and got a bunch of hand tools that were Plomb, Snapon, Mac and a few Proto things for $22. Then when I got back went by couple of estate sales and garage sales. There I picked up several tool boxes and a heavy duty card file for $14. The bigger box is an MBC who it seems used to make the boxes for Snapon and maybe Mac and others. Very heavy duty box but I need to find a tray that fits it and a nob for the one drawer and repaint it. The MBC box was $5 so I thought that was cheap enough. The smaller box is SK the other small box is Williams and the metal tackle box is a Union.
