**You had an estate sale because you were retiring to Naples, Florida. It was all furniture, paintings, and contemporary furnishings except for a Dayton nine drawer tool chest on casters.
I show up and the tool chest is on the porch with a price (well, well, well under $100) and tools were included!
When I was loading it I told the owner that she could have gotten much more for it but she said that she had asked her husband for the price. And you had mentioned that your husband had already taken the things out that he wanted.
Well, if your husband’s intent was to price it so low some guy is going to be really happy, he sure succeeded.
I’m going to treasure this tool chest and the things that went with it, (Bonney sockets, Thorsen ratchet and sockets, contour gage,carpenter’s rule,the picks, etc.) for decades to come. I especially like the Bonney feeler gauge and of course, the tool chest.
(I had always wanted a tool chest but hadn’t been able to afford it).
As I was sorting though the tools (which I spent hours on) I often thought about the owner and what kind of guy he is because the tools are so interesting and so varied.
It was like my name was on this tool chest:D
Thanks again and congratulations on your retirement.
