A few months ago I picked up a Craftsman wall mounted tool cabinet.  I had been looking for one and finally decided to pull the trigger.  I didn’t get a smoking hot deal, but got it for a fair price.  I think the cabinet first appeared in the Sears catalog somewhere right around 1954.  In an effort to collect all the vintage correct tools that would have been included with the cabinet, I relied on the 1954 Craftsman Tool Catalog description.  I had a lot of the tools prior to buying the cabinet, but I also got some help from a few other “tool guys” and of course scrolling through page after page of eBay listings. Here’s the cabinet and complete set of tools.

That is very nice!  I could have helped you with the tappet wrenches.

Craftsman 3/8" drive flex head ratchet.  Well used but not abused.
