and came away with these.
Ten wood chisels, six cold chisels a Phillips head screwdriver (rather worn) an excellent bearing scraper, a steel hook and the box,
20 items for $40.
The 1 and a 1/2 inch chisel (center top) is a Woodcock, Sheffield, England and on the local E-bay they’re asking $47 for one, two of the others are Ward Casr Steel and asking price for these is $26 each.
Most of them had been used as paint stirrers so there’s a bit of work to clean them up
Haven’t cleaned the box yet but have removed most of the paint and have given the Woodcock a clean up.

I’ll use the Woodcock and a couple of the others, I rather like old tools, warmer somehow and give the rest to the youngest son.

Great deal for you. I used to go to the early markets in London at Brick Street
Bethnal Green. You would find everything under the sun cheap- antiques,tools
books and anything that can be flogged. You got items that are rare because
today, if it cannot be mass-produced in China it is not offered. Those vintage
tools are the mark of a Craftsman.

What is a car boot sale? Is that stuff that has been seized by the police and they are auctioning?
