Default Jesse James Mac tool set

I tried listing this set on Craigslist and got a few hits but everyone wants to low ball me. There are a few used pieces and a few that are missing (see open spaces in pictures). I tried to price it out by what has sold on eBay and got to about $500 but couldn't find the 1/2" sockets. The box is dirty from body shop filler but I will take that into account.

(Now that I look at the pics the 1/2" flexible is in the wrong drawer.)

I spoke to you on Craigslist, but with the items that are missing it just didn't make sence for me to take your offer. You'll get it sold though, someone looking for a set of tools to get started with should jump all over it.

Its not my business, but I'll go ahead and tell you what some folks are thinking. The pictures you posted make the tool set look like Fido's butt. If you would take a few minutes and clean it up, it may at least look like the tools were taken care of. Nobodys gonna give you top dollar for that set in that shape. I know you didn't ask, but I'm trying to be helpful. Good luck to you.

It's not that they weren't taken care of, it's that they sat for so long, but I understand what you are saying, I did clean it up a bit as you can see there is only dust on the sides of the sockets.

Yes, I am asking $500.

I am not sure if they are supposed to be that color.

Found something that cleans that stuff off well, Purple Power, all the dust is off the top and I started working on the sides, starting to look real nice.
Will post some new pics when I finish.

Are the sockets impact or are they painted black to match everything else?

I do not believe they are impact, all are painted black to match.

Would be nice though.

Mac doesn't have their name on them, but they are exactly the same as the Mac tools, and of course came from the Mac dealer.

That's pretty good, there was one on eBay with a white West Coast Iron Cross on the front, with one missing piece and two used that sold for $1005.

How do you lose them? That sucks, especially when you can't get replacements!

I didn't lose them, I got it that way. I have a feeling that they are just sitting at the guy's I bought them from tool box with the extensions on them.

No one? Thought I would have drummed up some attention by cleaning it up.
