Garage Sale - Box Three
« on: March 31, 2024, 06:11:05 PM »
This is the third of three tool boxes I bought two weeks ago.  It isn't pretty, but it is a large, Dallas, Texas,  Giller Tools box for a 1/2 inch drive socket set.  This is the largest Giller socket set box I've seen in the wild.  It came with an eclectic selection of sockets and a McKaig Hatch wrench. I'm hoping to straighten it out and paint it. Sockets include Snap-On, Giller, Thorsen, Craftsman, Proto Challenger, and Wright.

I have only found odds and ends of Giller, nothing approaching a complete set

Same here.  I'm convinced many of the Giller sets sold in later years were at least partially filled with Thorsen sockets.  The part numbers are the same in many cases since the brands were owned by the same company according to Alloy Artifacts.

That sure is a nice Copper tool box. You could make it real pretty. Maybe Brasso, like for shining Navy belt buckles.
No matter how much you cut off, it's still too short
