Technically they are not 'new' tools ;)

I don't know why I picked up the nut spinner or keyhole saw but the yankee ratchet screwdriver is a beauty :D

I don't know who's worse.

The person selling this tat. Who could be bothered carting this stuff to a market for 60p.

Or You for buying it. ;)

But then again we all have our vices.... Maybe you might buy a second hand one next week for a fiver. :cool:
Funny you should say that

I did pick up an old goodell Pratt bench vise at a boot sale

It's quite a good day out, I have made £60+ every time I have had a clear out, and flog it at boot sales you ought to try it sometime.

One of my mates loves them, he is constantly looking for second hand golf clubs

All joking aside. I have a thing for buying cheap second hand CDs off eBay.

I don't know why, I stream all my music. :rolleyes:

The Stanley padsaw is good, you can use knife blades in that and still get brand new saw blades. And the old Yankee ratchet is great, a proper bargain I'd say ! :)
