Gift from a friend...Plomb box ends
« on: June 12, 2022, 05:27:47 PM »
At a motorcycle meet today I received these from a good friend...he said I can do what I want with them - I may want to sell them and put the money towards motorcycle Project 39-1/2.

Hunter is 86 and rode a '69 Triumph Bonneville to our motorcycle meet yesterday.  Up until a year ago he worked as a forklift mechanic.  Once in a while I would find Hunter (brand name) screwdrivers.  I would give them to Hunter and tell him "Stop leaving your tools lying around!".  We've traded a few tools over the years.

How thoughtful of your friend! There's just something special about receiving a gift that holds sentimental value, like those Plomb box ends. It's truly a reminder of the bond and connection we share with our friends. Speaking of cherished gifts, have you ever considered personalized Mother's Day gifts? They're a wonderful way to show appreciation for the amazing moms in our lives!

Some say that 3 of anything is a collection.  Your friend just started you down the path of completing a Plomb pebble dbe collection.  You'll always think of him as you build on the collection that he started for you.  No matter what- they are among the best looking wrenches ever made.  Even the plating has a distinct color.  Enjoy them!!

Can’t have too many of those. I regret selling some off in the early days.
