Hello Paul. I am Scott. I collect neckties, records. I should get one of your toolboxes for my 1962 Studebaker Lark.

this is a early 80s Montgomery ward tool chest I picked for $40. The quality is 10x a modern craftsman (I know because I own one and its junk). When I finished refurbish, I had a guy offer me $500 but I couldn't sell it.  I never get rid of anything so well built

my manual shears, I got these for a buck and they were frozen.  some wd40 and a blade sharpening and they cut like new

this was a yellow craftsman ratchet toolbox I found.  I paint matched it to my truck and made it my car emergency tool kit.  everything I need to fix most car problems.  I have an affliction for old toolboxes

Hello gentlemen, I just joined and I'm always finding vintage mens items at estate sales and at auction.

I really wish this group were more active. I love looking at the pictures of mantiques.

My great grandfather gave me a fraternity sword from the Knights of Pythias, a fraternity formed during the Reconstruction Era.  It doesn't have the sheath or the chain on the pommel, but it's still in good shape.
