Ok, took the toolbox down to the basement workbench so I could lay everything out and see what I ended up with, and well, here it is..
I must say some of the things were worth it! That quick slide adjustable wrench is pretty freaking cool, the pliers not bad, but the one large one is really nice, those combo wrenches are craftsman, the Allen wrench is pretty cool, one of the knives you can adjust and you squeeze it for the blade to come out, kinda cool but junk, but lastly I picked it up at another lot is the multi screwdriver, it’s also a flashlight so it lights the tip up, I so couldn’t pass that up!

Then you made out better than you thought.  Check out the prices for those drivers on eBay.  :D

The Helix adjustable wrench is also a great pickup.

Walked a few blocks again and found a few more things, this time with the Mrs and the kid and we got a few things, they just put out these cool salt and pepper shakers, you push the top down and it pops open, but the last stop we made was just around the corner because I wanted the Mrs to see, the glass stand I figured it would be good for her to show off her baking stuff, but also those little pots, I figured perfect for chili!

Nice!

My 45170 (S-K in a diamond) is even older than yours is, and it's still going strong. The only thing I had to do was tear it down to remove a combination of grease, grit, and dirt from the mechanism, regrease, and then reassemble. Solid ratchets that aren't that expensive on the secondary market, but will still last several lifetimes if taken care of. Even if the mechanism croaks, S&K will send a rebuild kit at no charge.

$8 for the lot.  The ratchet needs cleaning, but as you described, it is a solid tool.  I have a 1/2, now I need the 1/4 to complete my three piece set.

Wilton Electronic Vise. I picked up this vise at an estate sale.  It was in a pile of junk.  Essentially a hobby vise they mini power arm base is adjustable and allows the user to place the vise in many different positions.

Gonna have to start looking for a vise like that. I do need a decent big vise, but a small one that can be put in different positions was also on the list as I plan to get into knife repair.

Wilton's Baby bullet vises with the mini power arm would be the direction you might want to seek.

You're getting some good tools and accessories Yadda.  Those big sledge hammers make nice makeshift anvils.

My Saturday Auction buy.  Paid a little over $28.   Includes a skateboard multi tool. 

If it isn't too much hassle I sure would like a few more pics of that skate tool please.
