« Part 3: - Delta Milwaukee 6" Jointer Part 4 of Estate Sale Finds series Part 5: Why I go... »

Here are my finds for last week:
2 – Irwin screwdrivers
3 – Stanley No. 60 chisels
Vaughan ball pein hammer
Vaughan soft face hammer
Wilton 4” vise
And the coolest thing was the putty knife/spatula made by the Ontario Knife Company. It is very well made with a dovetailed walnut handle. I really like the old wood handled tools. They are fun to restore and make them look like new. And they work well.

I got a great deal and everything you see was Made in America.

Great score! Wish I could find some decent garage/estate sales near me (northern CA). When there are estate sales they are organized with sign-up sheets at the door. Some people get there hours early to be first in. I don’t have the patience.

Love those #60s, and the perfect handle (Irwin) screwdivers. Good tools!
