Newbie, first impressions
« on: November 29, 2013, 05:18:44 PM »
These were all stored outdoors in five gallon buckets probably for the past twenty years.

Looks like you inherited a well pump guy's stash. There is some cool stuff there. I don't know if it is possible, but it would be a lot easier if you could number the photos somehow. What sort of things are you interested in? There is a cultivator wrench about in the middle of the top board in the top photo and I see monkey wrenches under pipe wrenches in the last pic. I like unusual monkey wrenches. A side note. I live a couple of blocks from the old Doerr Motor factory and my next door neighbor is Lee Doerr's daughter. She is 90 years old and has lots of stories about his inventions. Let us know what you would like to swap for.
Thanks,

John

All of my regular pics are too large to upload here, but I've posted almost all the full size ones on the flickr account.

Welcome!  It is a nice ole pile of rusty things, much of which reminds me of days past.

I'm curious to learn more about the ratchet pictured here.  It seems to have a detachable head on a small diameter shank.

Hey OilyRascal
I finally got around to taking some more pics of that ratchet, the shank apparently is detachable
