hello new member Tacoma Wa
« on: January 08, 2016, 09:51:25 PM »
Hello there.
new member.
Tacoma, Washington
former buyer/treasurer (retired), Tillicum Suppliers Inc., AA Auto Parts Inc., Tacoma, Wa. 1971-1988 - Indestro Tool Warehouse Distributors - Thorsen Tool Warehouse Distributors (along with about 180 other product lines of automotive parts, accessories, and tools.)

ALWAYS looking for Indestro "Super", Indestro "Select", and Indestro "Classic".
I pick up a few pieces of Thorsen now and then.
Acquiring a penchant for 1/4" drive vintage Craftsman stuff, just because I can.
and for reasons which are not entirely clear to me, find myself picking up oddball 1/4" drive sets in "KAL", "Proamerica", "Herbrand" and some others.

... maybe it's just one of those "shiny objects" things.

also on GarageJournal dot com - same handle - fairly new there.
registered on theGarageGazette dot com - same handle - but for some weird reason have never been able to "log in".

if it says "CHINA" on it, odds are you will not find it in my tool box. ;)

Welcome!  That quarter inch stuff is fun.  I like the little adjustables, too.

Welcome from Pa.
A person who could really read human minds would be privileged to gaze on some correct imitations of chaos.
