Don’t confuse the nice tools in the last picture as having come with it. Those are my regular tools. All the stuff that was in the chest will get sold as it’s stuff I already have. LOL

Nice….! A treasure trove of old tools, and for $40.00….There’s tools in there that is worth a lot more than what you paid for it….you found a bird’s nest on the ground….and you made out like a bandit….!! Good score…!

Hey Brent – I might be interested in some of those tools if you are selling them off.

Brent, Good eye indeed! I’m not quite up to the hand tool skill level yet, but if you have an item to part with…

Does the No 62 ruler have tight joints?

I’ve got a real nice one, but it’s so nice I don’t use it… looking for one I can carry in my pocket without worrying.

Hey Ocelot,

Both the rules are in great shape. Just really dirty. But a little wash in Oxalic acid will brighten the boxwood and clean them right up. The brass bound rule isn’t a Stanley 62 though. It’s actually a Keen Kutter 620. Same dog, different colour LOL.

I know it’s Sunday, and “Thou shalt not covet”, but DAMN ! You got pretty lucky there, my friend. Congratulations on the great buy. Whenever I’m out on a weekend without “The Boss” to tell me not to stop, I always go to estate and yard sales. ya just never know what you’ll find. Glad you made out so well.
BTW, I’d have got the kerosene stove too, not to use but to clean up as a decorative item. I had two of them years ago that got away from me somehow.

Fascinating to see your recent find. My grandfather had a tool chest with similar contents. It was passed on to my son, now 63, who just yesterday said he’d like my help in sorting out the stuff.
