Tools- My little find yesterday
« on: December 15, 2012, 06:38:06 PM »
Estate sale find near home Friday yielded these two Williams NM-8 tool boxes. These contained an ignition set by Williams. One box is missing some of the dividers, and unfortunately, that one has the best label inside the lid.

Nope- They will be sold if I can figure out age and value.

I thought NM-8 seemed familiar....

papaw, do the hinge pins come out? you could swap lids.....
Just a weathered light rust/WD40 mix patina.

That catalog shows a different set in the NM-8 box. The contents don't match the labels in mine. Mine have an ignition set only.
