I have quite an assortment of tools myself. Some from my Dad and Grand Father. Most of my dads tools were U.S. Navy issue. He was a career Navy man and was stationed at a moth ball fleet area in the late 50s. They were stripping ships before sending them to the scrappers for cutting apart. Each ship had its own repair facility on board as well as machine shop etc. All of it was considered surplus and the base commander allowed the sailors to take items home as opposed to sending to the dump. My dad was not a tool fanatic like I tend to be. I have been collecting my own tools for fifty five years and still do. I had figured to leave them to my son and probably still will. His father in law retired from a career as an air frame mechanic and custom helicopter fabricator. Air ambulances and corporate custom crafts were his forte. He gave my son the most beautiful set of fabrication tools I have ever seen. Truly amazing, they filled up my 12 foot enclosed motorcycle trailer when we went to pick them up. Probably ten boxes of high quality specialty tools. Made my stuff look paltry by comparison.
