Rigid 14 inch pipe wrench. I found this lying at a 4-way stop intersection on the way home from church today.

Another time long long ago on the way home the guy in front of me was a welder, you could see the tanks and equipment on the back of his truck and his helmet blew off, I stopped in traffic to pick it up, then tried to catch up to him, honked and flashed my lights but he didn’t slow down and then took a turn that wasn’t my way home so it staid in my truck, and it wasn’t a cheesy one, it was one of those automatic ones, still in good shape even though it blew about 15’ into the air and landed just off the road! Never got to use it, I used to do some welding and fig maybe it might come in handy but just never did..JR
Proto 320 tin snips and some weird little brush tool. Found last week on my commute to work.
II let them sit there for the rest of the day and went down the next day and was like, oh well they had the chance to come back ,,
Not a tool, but likely more important. A few weeks ago, on my way home in late afternoon traffic, I was ready to make a right at a very busy intersection, the light turned green, and I then saw it, a Teddy Bear laying in the road, I put truck in park, turned on 4-ways, jumped out and rescued the bear and a few horns were honked, and I laid the bear on the base of a street lamp, and returned to the truck, looking at the cars behind me, figuring I was to receive middle finger salutes I received thumbs ups from a few drivers. I made my turn on red, and continued home. But, the next day running an errand for part time job, went into that intersection going other direction, caught a red, glanced at the base of the light pole, the bear was gone. Replaced with a 3 foot square piece of card board with a “THANK YOU” and a heart painted on it. A grateful parent I am sure! Made my day. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
Pretty sure the "brush tool" is a "hoof tool" for horses that combines a brush for cleaning hooves and hoof pick. Proto tin snips are pretty neat--around the house is old Wiss.
My most recent find was a full sized pitchfork in like-new condition.
Duralast 3/8 breaker bar, found on the side of the road near my house.
I wonder if there's a socket still attached to their car somewhere.
