A view into a tradesman's toolbox and life
« on: July 12, 2019, 05:57:48 PM »
Sometimes you find a box of tools that means more than just a few sockets and a hammer.

This box belonged to an Upholsterer.

I bought it because it tells a story, not because it has any $$ value.

you can see how he kept some things handy, and how  some tools were just specific to his trade.

and ... its really really cool.

Yeah, nice little tool box.   I recognize the web puller and pliers and different needles.   Good save.   :smiley:
