I picked up a cad-plated Plomb WF-23 (with a "K" suffix) 3/8-inch drive speeder and a NOS Blue-Point thread file in NOS packaging this morning at the flea market.

Obviously Reiff & Nestor was the OEM by shape and style of the tool alone, and if there was any doubt you could see a faint "NU-TRIX" through the top layer.

I was not the one who tore open the end of the packaging. That was done by either a PO or the seller. I was hoping to keep the packaging intact, and slip the thread file in and out of it like a sleeve, but it wouldn't budge without destroying the packaging. So I removed the piece of yellowed tape and I was pleasantly surprised by what I found.

Picked up an interesting Snap-on spinner at the flea today, an M-45, all-steel, with a cross-drilled hole for a tommy bar.

Apparently they are somewhat uncommon to begin with, and this one has a very unusual finish. Dark baked enamel grey.

Keeping it in my 9/32-inch driv case for now. You can see the color contrast. 1942 date code.

Friday's small haul had some wartime goodies, including a Plomb pebble 3/8-inch drive ratchet (5429), a Plomb offset screwdriver, and a Plomb ignition wrench with a chipped jaw. The other offset screwdriver is a Snap-on 040. That special flex spinner with the tiny hex bit is cad-plated, but it's unmarked and looks homemade (press-fit). Not sure about the 1/4-inch drive screw starter. The golden nugget in here is probably the Carter Carbureter T109-51 3/8-inch drive stubby spinner. Non-wartime in the misc ignition wrenches includes a 1936 Blue-Point, a pair of P&C, a pair of Wizard, and a pair of 8xx series Duro-Chrome.
