Todays best flea market finds.
« on: June 05, 2011, 01:51:50 PM »
Had a good day at the flea market today. The best items today were,

A Plvmb 18-1/2 inch flex handle #5468.
A Plvmb pebble box end wrench 3/4 X 7/8 #1139
A, Plvmb 5/8 X 9/16 DOE wrench # 41820
A Plvmb 3/4 X 13/16 box end wrench #8163
A  3/4 inch socket wrench marked A. PLOMB with no model number. Looks like a tire iron.
A Plvmb 9/16 deep 12 point socket # 5341
A Plvmb 1 inch deep 12 point socket #5351
A Plvmb box end 1/2 USS (7/8 X   5/8 USS (1-1/8) #7047 ? Big wrench.
The last one is kinda hard to read without derusting it some. I have never seen a Plvmb wench with both the older and newer style of size marking on them. And the A. PLOMB tool was a great find for me as was the below Bog tool.

A Bog 5/8 socket wrench. Looks like a tire iron.
A Craftsman 1/4 drive ratchet # VM--43187.
A bunch of Mossberg stamped sockets.
A couple Walden Worcester socket wenches.
About a dozen Craftsman sockets.
A Snap-On 13 MM 6 point 1/4 drive short socket.
A 18 inch Proto los Angeles pipe wrench.
A big Proto chisel.
And about 3 dozen other misc tools.
Almost forgot the Herbrand key ring screwdriver and the Diamond 18 inch auto wrench ?
There was more tools there today than you could carry in the back of a small pickup. Most of the outside sellers were new people with fresh stuff.

no I am looking to unload all my old junk and stuff.  Have not sold at a flea market for ever, but it sounds like a popular one and may be a good one to unload all the junk laying around.

I have no way to post pictures at this time. I am not on a computer, but a antique web browser.

Do not go to a Flea market after Evildr, I went today and there was nothing left.  I found only one Kawasaki wrench.


Thanks,

Went to the flea market again today (6-12-11) and only got about 12 items. The best item was a 1951 Wright N70 ratchet. About 6 sockets, a large Auto Kit wrench, a Blackhawk DOE wrench, a P&C chisel, a Proto chisel and a B&D electric drill. Not as many sellers as last weekend and fewer dollars in my pocket.

....YOu mean Kawasaki and Yamaha wrenches are collectible???  What about old Toyota stuff??  Never thought about it actually.  I've passed over a bunch of them at pawn shops etc.  I need to bounce around on the different forums more often....

I guess it is what you collect, I collect primarily motorcycle tool kit tools and a few car tools when there cheap.  I actually picked up an early Kawasaki wrench.  Yamaha is not so collectible at least not to me.  There is only one Yamaha wrench I am looking for.

Here is an example of an early 1960's  kawasaki wrench.




I also look for these Kawasaki wrenches, the logo in the front of Kawasaki is the key it dates the wrench to the early 1970's.
