I went through my GMTK spare tools on hand and started adding other brands as well as some more Plomb pieces.

Don,

I’m glad you posted your Plomb based set here as well instead of just letting the GJ guys enjoy it.

BTW could you post a pic of your recently acquired NOS extra heavy duty ink stamped Irwin? I’d love to see it :lol:

Thanks, Phil. I actually posted it right before I started the Plomb GMTK set pictures. It’s on the previous page.

Don, congratulations on a very well curated set! It’s nice to see a GMTK from an unusual, among the G, manufacturer. It’s also a manufacturer with enough demand to be a challenge and expensive to compete for the less common items.

Not only that, but you assembled it on the quiet and now you’ve surprised us with an excellent presentation.

Thanks for a job well done!

Much appreciated, Steve. Now the fun part of searching for the missing tools starts. It’s always a challenge, especially looking for obscure Plomb tools. Here are some pictures of the Plomb made Paschall hammers. I believe that I have a 1 lb version on the way.

This 1941 1/2” drive u-joint arrived in the mail this afternoon. I was surprised the see the ORD marking. It seems appropriate that it should end up in a GMTK.

Some 1/2” drive sockets arrived in the mail. I’m not sure that the 13/16” is a keeper (due to finish), but it’s an excellent placeholder for the moment.

Some progress is being made on the Plomb based set. Yesterday was a check to see what was still needed and today I added hex wrenches and Pipe wrenches.

Yesterday’s additions to the Plomb based set. I borrowed a couple of DBE wrenches out of the NAF toolbox, which I will replace. The Barcalo shorty offset and larger Arcturus DOE are sizes that Plomb didn’t offer. The hard to find putty knife came from an eBay seller in Canada. I was recently reminded that Arcturus wrenches were found in the wynmkr GMTK.

Some Plomb additions arrived yesterday, generously sent by other collectors. The DOE wrench arrived from Texas and the other tools from Oregon.

A couple of items for the Plomb GMTK arrived in the mail today from eBay sellers. They both required some serious restoration. The before pictures are from the eBay listings.
