A good day rust hunting - there are no tools in the south

  Re: (...)
I first spied these several months ago and was able to close the deal today quite by accident. There are two Pilkington braces in the lot along with a very nice log caliper and assorted other items.

So, do you figure that's your ultimat(e/um) score?

Those are some nice looking braces, you defiantly found a honey hole which are at least where i live few and far between. "Congratulations" and i also like your tool chest as well.

Nice! On both scores.

If I recall, according to Cherobini (sp) you have the premium bits to the braces.

Impressive tools!



Are you going to use them or just display them?

Holy Schnikes! I feel like in NJ we get a lot of tools, but if I found *either* that toolbox or those braces, I'd have a gloat for life. Nice job! Use them well.

Those braces are the jam, though. Just saying. Man I'm jealous.

Nice score for sure.

I especially like the log caliper. Do you know the maker?
Looks similar to the Greenleaf log caliper I have.
