Cool Thread! In 1968 I did three paper routes, baby sat & worked at a hardware store in Falls Church Va. They sold Thorsen tools so I bought a red tote around & a set of 1/2" drive sockets & some open ended wrenches only good for building bridges... Oh and I have a lot of my grand daddy's Snap On tools that he purchased used as a young man- still going great! Interesting to note how many tools we all own & what they cost us but in reality they have no value except for what we can do with them. You can't sell them for a fraction of what we paid for them, I paid more for all the tools I own than was the purchase price of my house but yet I can't borrow any money on them! I'm always looking for tools at the junk stores & swap meets, never know what you'll bring home next! Ima a Sucker for a used tool, a .22 Rifle or an old Chevy Pickup!
