    Nice yeah I used to buy my mooneyes and Mr.Hoorsepower shirts there back then. That was when Mike Corwin ran the counter. Wish TCR was still around but they were costly and we had quite a few speed shops back then Race Prep, Victory Circle, TCR.... Now I can only say to my knowledge Victory Circle is the only one and way to overpriced on parts. You guys sure turned out some nice sprint cars back then.-Weeks

    Here's a box I found at a garage sale this past summer.
    The tag says:Box, Tool, Mechanics', it has type, size, spec. no. Manu P/N, Contract No. made by Simonsen Metal Products, Company Chicago, 51, IL

    Does anyone have any info on anything like this?

    Any suggestions for restoring (painting) a vintage (1940'-50's) craftsman roll-around.
    Bottom roll around is ok but the top needs paint. I'm wondering if any one knows where to get the matching color paint. Thanks

    I traded my everlasting soul to the devil for this tool box, I wasn't using it no how. Really traded an old bow for it. Will make a great battery box in the 34. Think it is a router box. Don't know how old it might be.

    Its definitely Rimline I will give you the information on my box that has the same handles
    My dad bought this box in 1956 in long island N.Y I have called the Rimline company they have been bought by some other company and they have no vintage parts
    My fathers wife gave me the tool box after he past away with all the tools in it
    Its been painted about 50 times looks like hell but I would not trade it for the world:(

    Scored this 1965 Snap On box loaded with tools at the Crane Cams
    liquidation last month.Pulled the drawers out and found old receipts
    from bike shops in Long Beach and stuff leading me to believe the
    original/previous owner worked for Holman-Moody.

    And here's the Rem Line I got for HS graduation in 78.

    Here's an old Proto that I picked up at an estate sale over the weekend for $5.00!
    It's pretty crusty and will probably stay that way, but it opens and closes pretty good. I love the tag!
    Can anyone tell how old it is?

    I just started restoring a K-60, K200 Art Deco Snap On tool box combo and would like some detailed photos of one of these things if anyone has one.
    Thanks

    This is a # 19574 Blackhawk "Bullet Type Wrench Case" used for the Blackhawk 7/16" drive sockets.....Why I even care is beyond me. This info came from www.alloy-artifacts.com no doubt a website from some insane asylum.

    Here's a couple of pics of an old MAC tob chest I picked up at a garage sale last week. Yes, it was FULL of vintage MAC & Snap-On tools, as well as a Snap-On catalog from 1955 and a MAC catalog from 1960. There were also receipts for tools the original owner had bought dating from 1958 to 1965. One of the receipts showed he was making monthly paynebts to the MAC dealer......$15.00 per week !!

    1940's probably - TQ-15 if you have an old catalog.... let me know.

    Even came with the warranty card. I emailed snap on already - unable to tell me squat. sad really.

    Here are a couple of mine. I believe the Snap On is a K-55-R but I have no clue about the roller. It was a nice green and has a circle indented in the lower part of the cover. Very heavy but only 25" wide at the top. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks
