Texas panhandle Proto fan
« on: August 14, 2013, 06:25:21 PM »
Hello all. Just discovered this forum recently and look forward to spending time here learning. I'm not really a collector but have a definite appreciation for quality American made tools. My first set of wrenches was a set of Proto Professionals that I still own, although over the years two of them have gone awol.
I did come across an old mechanic who literally had crates full of hand tools. The best part of it is he is allowing me to sort through the crates and pull out all I want for extremely reasonable prices so maybe I can swap my way into complete sets.
Have a great day.

Welcome from Illinois.

Crates of tools, now that sounds like a dream to me.
And I'm proud to be an American,
where at least I know I'm free.
And I won't forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.
