Stopped in to "Grandma Jaree's" after work and came home with these.  The plastic tray appears to be wrench holder which I may find useful. 

A set of Tomahawk wrenches (Walden-Worcester made).  These things have the finish of Japanese motorcycle wrenches but the shape and size is nearly identical to Barcalo Buffalo USA.  I know they're not related but maybe W-W copied the Barcalo pattern.  The Tomahawk is about an 1/8" shorter.
Does anyone have the missing sizes???  I'd be interested in completing this set.  There's a 11/16 + 19/32, also a 1/2 + 7/16.  Maybe others?



Does anyone recognize the tire iron?  The box ratchet is part of some tool - it says RAISE on one side and LOWER on the other.  An unmarked hand vise.  And a Craftsman wrench C-1725-A.

Patrick Leach says- "That guy has spammed the entire net with that plane.

I received it twice.

Must be too much cognac running through his brain."

Is that an adjustable-pitch plane?  Looks like it is.

I got quick ID from folks on Antique Tools : Buy Sell and trade on Facebook, including a note from Jim Bode IDing that plane as a Chardoillet (France 1852). The patent for this plane dates back to 1852, and for one of the first versions of the system, you can find a patent from 1844.

Looks like someone designed a handle with some strength, one that would not snap in the middle.
I always wondered why Perfect Handle did not catch on as a handle design.

Perhaps someone can help this friend in France find some info on his plane.

"I have in my possession a beautiful and large planer in wood and metal that I hold from my family (see attachment).

I would like to know a little more about this tool, in particular about its history, the year of its manufacture, is it a rare tool, which country, etc.

If I can't tell me, can you give me the contact details of someone who could help me with these searches.

Thank you in advance for your help and your information, I wish you a happy new year 2020."
