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

My latest purchase 60p the lot :)
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:

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 ! :)

but that's not a yankee. this is:

with the double spiral shaft.
I used to have one of those when I started my apprenticeship in the 80's the wood butchers used to have the next size up. When we were given one we were told not to point it at anyone when opening as the end could shoot out and kill someone.
