Post by Robin » Tue Mar 06, 2018 7:17 pm

This kit turned up on craigslist last night for a good price so I had to pick it up. There are 52 tools in it out of 120 necessary to complete it. Nearly every tool here is a special purpose tool. What's missing are screwdrivers, pliers, etc.

That's what you call a time capsule! Nice find.

Hard to believe we used to fix/tune typewriters, and now if the printers out of ink it's cheaper to by a new printer than the replacement ink cartridge.
Go figure.
Get yourself two matching vintage typewriters (so it looks like your actually fixing them as a service) and a field desk and set up at a local mil Vehicle show, pull the paper roller out (easy one) and lay some tools out.
A display like no other. Nice find.
