a toolful toolbox...

sorting all the tools out from
a toolbox full with tools.
even when shinya wants only the box,
swap meet guys usually say
"take them all!"

よくスワップミートで、箱だけが欲しいのに
中身満載のまま持って行ってくれ、と言われることがあります。
後で中を見るのも楽しみのひとつ。
 
sometimes you will find really good tools
in there.  sometimes...not.
but shinya enjoys sorting small things out
from the old toolboxes.

すっごく良いツールが入っていることもあるし、
ハズレの時もあるけれど、
古い箱から細々としたものを取り出しては、
おっ!などと小さな声を上げる木村氏、気分転換中。

Well you know it is not unlike a treasure hunt. Most of the time it is a pile of made in China imitation tools. But... On the rare occassion that you stumble on a Armstrong, Cornwell, Indestro, J.H. Williams, Mac, Proto, Snap-On, Starrett, Wright etc.., then it is all worthwhile.

Rockford: this time, i got some made in USA tools including Proto!

jefu las vegas NV: thank you, jefu!

Rockford said...

Score! Proto is a fine tool indeed, made in L.A.! And still in business.

i love doing the same thing...
but not with toolboxes!!

i have several boxes, full of stuff, since my school years!

every once in a while, it's so funny to take a look inside them!

:))
