Those are neat! I especially love the vintage round ones. There's a lot of styles from other eras that I hadn't seen before.

Do you still use them on occasion?

Thanks for sharing these with us.

Very cool, Ellis :cool

I see some very old antiques in your collection as well!

Thanks guys. The earliest are from the 30's. I'm still missing the very earliest C series Craftsman(1932). I do have a post war Snap-On that there are only two known(one besides mine). And yes Austen I do use them. I tend to like the ones from the 50's to 70's. Great mechanisms and high quality materials. I have a lot more, but they are part of sets.

LOL Ellis, being a old mechanic brings memories! I still have my tool box, you will see it in garage pictures! I never collected the tools per say. I used them!
Enjoyed seeing some of the ones I owned/own!!

That's an impressive collection Ellis and I like the fact you have them all neatly organized too.

I meant to comment on that too; yes, everything is very organized.

My box doesn't stay like that for long. :sidelaugh

That's a lot of eye candy for the tool guy in all of us! Not everyone can appreciate the beauty in those. Thanks for sharing that.

Thanks everyone. It's not quite like baseball cards, etc. You don't meet a lot of fellow collectors, lol. But I really enjoy searching for, and finding, new ones.

Very nice. I still have the Craftsman tool set my parents gave me for Christmas in 1976.
