Held in a vacated hardware store, this family took out the middle man and was selling the estate themselves.  The first purchase ws the Waterloo Industries tool box, the two $3 monkey wrenches(the big one is 20" and over 7#) and the open ends and the Bonney were a dollar each.  Then I asked if I could sniff through what they hadn't priced yet "behind the ropes".  The guy in charge and I came to an agreement of $30 for all that's in the third photo including the 18" lomb Pipe wrech .  I'll post more details later when I have more time.....

Dim,

Nice score.  There's good stuff in this batch.  A couple items caught my eye; dog bone wrench, two long slender DOEs with a rib nunning down the beam, and the smaller round head ratchet (looks to be a Fleet).

Will you be parting any of these tools out?

I'll probably keep the Fleet since  I don't have one, but the tappet wrenches could leave here.  The Chorme X's I might sell too; the Offset DBE's and I found another smalleer one last weekend at a yard sale that further fills out the set.
