Portland Swap Meet finds
« on: April 15, 2012, 09:37:06 PM »
The Portland swap meet score
If you never been to the Portland Swap Meet, you should check it out.  There were some great deals to be had.  I am currently running for an award and have had a first in my life, please see the last photo in this post.  The ratchet  came with a cornwell socket and it cost 50 cents.

Found quite a bit including two flat King Dick wrenches, a pair of Vlcheck pliers, a Pair of TW English pliers, a pair of Ford Pliers, a Stanley Chisel,


An SK socket box.

A Chevrolet Spark Plug Wrench, Barcalo 11/16, Barcalo 3/4x5/8, Unmarked flat wrench, MAC Sabina 1/2
A Williams number 1 engineer, Watson’s stabilizer wrench, and a Honda wrench

Walden Worchester 1/2  Drive ratchet 1160, 1/4 inch breaker bar, 3/8 action extension, 1/2 drive 30mm Everest socket, 27mm ½ drive Napa socket, 3/8 Craftsman t Handle with a V

A partial set of Duro-chrome Dart wrenches


A couple of 723’s including a Barcalo from a jeep tool kit for 50 cents.

This is a true story and this is my first snap on ratchet, it came with a cornwell socket and it cost 50 cents.

Some very nice finds there.

To bad the SK box didnt come with tools.

And I'm proud to be an American,
where at least I know I'm free.
And I won't forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.

This is the first time I have seen them in the wild as well.  I assume there is only 8 wrenches in the set , as the 3/8 is marked is 2031 and the 15/16 is marked 2039.

Thanks,
Kirk

I am interested in purchasing the Watson Stabilator wrench, if you still have it and you are willing to sell it. Let me know. Thanks.

Lots of great stuff!  I did not know that TW (T Williams) made pliers.  Something to watch for.  I have a complete set of TW Superslim BSF/Whitworth wrenches and the complete set of offset box end wrenches (chrome).

Yeah, now you've gotta fill it!

I'm two pieces away from filling mine.

Don't think I ever saw a Ferret from that era in such fine condition.

BTW, where is the Portland swap meet?  I was there two summers in a row and likely missed it.
