    If you recognize what some of these hand tools are, shout out. Some are obvious, others are not.

      On the picture on the far left, the center screwdriver. Can you tell me how long it is?
    2. Savoychina1 Savoychina1, 10 years ago
      It matches the center one in the last picture. Both have flat spots ,front and back, rather than being totally round handles. The first is 5 & 1/2 inches the second is 5 & 3/4 inches.

      In the first picture, #2 from the top I think is for cleaning oysters from the shell. I have one that I use once in a while for shaping epoxy filler, like clay.
    5. areliczone areliczone, 10 years ago
      In picture #3 I recognize the soldering iron, but I can't see what the tip of the tool above it looks like.
    6. areliczone areliczone, 10 years ago
      In picture # 1 the bottom tool I think is a scratch awl, and the # 3 down I beleive is an excessory for a stanley molding plane. Don't quote me on that.

      5 1/4 inches over all, the blade is deeply cross hatched for 1 1/2 inches and smooth the last inch. The tip looks like it has been ground at home because it is non symetrical.
    8. areliczone areliczone, 10 years ago
      When you say cross hatched, is it like a file?
    9. Savoychina1 Savoychina1, 10 years ago
      Yes, or a rasp. I dont know if it was intended as part of the use of the tool or decorative.
    10. areliczone areliczone, 10 years ago
      Find a need and fill it. Probably a special need tool.
    11. Savoychina1 Savoychina1, 10 years ago
      True. He had 8 or 10 handles ready to receive a file or rasp or whatever he needed and in whatever size ! One handle is actually just a whittled piece of wood !

      in the first picture there is an awl and what appers to be an old icepick i dont know the others in that photo but the second photo is lath tools used for shaping wood to make things like a baceballbat ot a table leg the 3rd pict is all screwdrivers thats all i can toll you cept they look like they come from the early 30's
