I have always collected old tools, but have recently started piecing together vintage socket sets. Here’s a few I’m working on at the moment. I figure you guys may appreciate these!

Craftsman set I pieced together. Only missing the crossbar and it’s actually on the way so this set will be complete soon!

Here’s a Thorsen set I am working on. I am only missing 3 sockets to complete it. The spinner handle is not original to the set but it is around the same time and I figured I would add it to this set.

Forgot these! These are the Craftsman and Thorsen sets in the original catalog.

Also doing this Snap-On set. This one will take me a while. The case it in great condition which is usually the hardest thing to find. Can’t wait to get this one finished!

Here is a 3/8” drive Snap-On set I put together. Not the original box but I will be looking for the box and ratchet for this set soon.

I have a bunch of old wrenches, sockets, screwdrivers, plains, extensions, speeders, hammers, pliers, etc.....

Oh, and ratchets! I LOVE old ratchets! I have been taking them apart and cleaning and repairing (if needed) and I find it very relaxing and rewarding.

I will add them slowly as I take pictures.   :tu:

Terrible picture and I will get better ones later when I pull all these out. In the mean time here is what is almost all vintage ratchets and breaker bars. I have more that have not been cleaned yet to add to these but I’m running out of room!

I was at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore yesterday and saw a number of sets like these and I was so tempted to grab them!  I didn't though, as I really appreciate them, but I am sure someone else will appreciate them even more.

Leave the dents as they are- let your belongings show their scars as proudly as you do yours.

I have heard of that store and finding socket sets. Sadly we do not have those stores here. Is it close by? If you happen to stop in again could you snap a picture of what they have?

Nice sets, captain! Glad to see you posting again. You've been somewhat absent, haven't you?

 :cheers: :salute:

I'd be happy to.  I think the sets were $10-15 depending on the set and there were at least four I think.

Depending on the set it actually is and condition as well as how complete it is they could be worth some good money. If they are worthwhile and in the $10-$15 range I would be all over them if I had the chance and the cash!   :drool:

Those Snap-On sets can be expensive to fill. The boxes alone can be very pricey even in poor condition.

Oh I know it! Your more than correct.

Anything Snap-On is expensive. I do get lucky and find some amazing Snap-On deals at flea markets and garage sales. The 3/8” set with extensions and swivel if bought new would be several hundred dollars. I paid $15!

Yea. I don’t post like I used to. Just been busy taking care of things around the house and have a lot more to do. I do check in quite often, but don’t post as much. I’m loving the new hand tool section as I have a ton of stuff to share. It will takes weeks to post it all. Maybe longer. I need to get new pictures of everything but have a few garage sale haul pictures I can share in the mean time.

Some garage sale finds. As far as tools go I typically only buy vintage USA made tools so anything you see tool wise will be USA made.

Oh and everything you see in the second picture of the sockets is all Snap-On.

Watch it with those Plomb/Plumb tools.  That is a long dark deep rabbit hole.  :ahhh  ;) :D
