Old Red and Cross, hmm, who does that sound like?

Sweet find Tony.  Got plans for it or will you leave it as is?

Old Red an Cross? What do you mean?    :shrug:

Need to get the main blade sitting lower, all the sharpening has made the point too high when it is closed
Then need to tidy up the blade a bit if I can  :tu:
Will try to be gentle  :cheers:

Thanks Mate as you can guess I was very happy  :D

As well you should be !  :cheers:

Those Craftsman tool boxes are dang nigh indestructible.  Is that a Jack Daw adjustable? 

The long handled small ball peins and the eclipse padsaw are lovely too! The lighters, SAK and the PH screwdriver are like royal cherries on top.

For the record what is the meter and who made it?

But as always missing it's tray  ::) just need to give it a bit of a clean up
Yes it's a Jackdaw, you have good eyes Mate, will need a bit of work to get it moving  :tu:
It's a Megga wind-up insulation tester in a metal box, I used one when I first started work, will wack out 500v   :ahhh
I've only ever seen them before in leather boxes/carrying cases

Lots of cherries  :D :D

Oh and there's an old Marbles match safe thingy in there as well  :tu:

Never thought about it before.  Probably a biz idea in manufacturing replacement trays for old toolboxes.

That insulation tester, hmmmmm.... with long leads atttached dropped over the side of a boat.....  >:D....never mind....... :D ... :angel:

Those match safes are really nice for lots of uses!

You are a bad influence Yadda  :whistle:

I bought the  round tobacco tin for a pipe smoking friend, had some junk in it and some American keys (I do find some odd stuff sometimes  :think: :D )
Just a quick tip,
if you wash one of those match safes in the kitchen sink and put it in a hot oven to dry, don't forget to take out the rubber gasket  :ahhh

Had a chilly morning and picked up a few useful bits

A Zippo and a nice lighter marked Next

Oh and I paid too much for this worn out old thing  :whistle:

A lot of nice stuff there! That toolbox has a lot of life left in it. I recently cleaned up one that looks identical to yours (though maybe a bit bigger?) my granddad had sitting in a corner of the farm shop (which at one point, held a bunch of tools in his company truck he had when working for a mine owner as a purchasing agent) and put the bulk of my tools in it.  Those Marble's matchsafes are often pricey--nice score!

A coworker spotted this at a garage sale.  He paid $2 and gave them to me.  Disston No. 5 searing Loppers.  18 inches with most of the original orange paint on the handles.  The blade is still very sharp. The No. 5. is listed in the .1939 and 1945 and earlier catalogs.

I picked up these hand saws for about $10USD:

- Unknown brand 16" 6.5 PPI (5.5 TPI) Compass Saw
- Nonpariel (with elephant logo) 26" 7.5 PPI (6.5 TPI) crosscut saw
- Disston probably No.7 26" 7 PPI (6 TPI) crosscut saw http://www.disstonianinstitute.com/7page.html
- Disston probably D-8 with thumbhole 28" 4 PPI (3 TPI) rip saw http://www.disstonianinstitute.com/d8page.html

They have hardly any rust on them, just grime and a few paint splatters. Unfortunately the handle with the thumbhole isn't complete.
I'm thinking just some steel wool and kerosene on the blades and for the handles sanding off the varnish and putting boiled linseed oil on.
(By the way, this is a really informative site: http://www.disstonianinstitute.com/ with a quick glance guide here: http://www.disstonianinstitute.com/quickglance.html )

Nice buy!  At $2.50 each you couldn't go wrong.  I went to an estate sale Saturday and came home empty handed.  All the tools left were broken.  The two pocket knives had retail prices.  >:(

Thumb hole or index finger?

Thumb hole or index finger?
"Thumbhole handle for two-handed use" apparently. But your index finger naturally goes there if using it one-handed.

I have just read that it is made by W.Tyzack, Sons and Turner of Sheffield. The word "Nonpariel" and the elephant logo were brands/trademarks of theirs.
