  • Sockets

    Picked this up today in one of my little deals. A 1960's Britool socket set. It must have been treasured though out someones working life as the additions and replacements are all Snap on and Proto. Neither cheap and I know from experience mechanic's wages haven't always been the best. Click image for larger version

        I have more than enough but I just keep getting them. Bought an old Britool 3/4 drive T handle and Snap On 19mm just for the vans wheel nuts from the Antique centre in Church Stretton a couple a weeks ago then found cause the socket is impact and beefed up it wont go down the hole in the alloys.......be ok for the winter steels mind.Love flea markets and boot sales for old sockets and spanners. The Britool stuff from about 1990 on just isn't a patch on the old stuff.......i'll get me coat.

            I got a old ish brittool set, it never let me down no matter how i abuse it. Unfortunately the new stuff is made in China, so don't know how long it lasts or how manny bolts get rounded off

              That looks a steal at that Chally mate.

                I probably didn’t really need it but couldn’t refuse.

                      The old saying ‘ they don’t make them like they used too ‘ I like the older tools , Elora , stahlwille , brittool , king dick ( one for arf ) as far as modern tools go I find Bergen ok if your on a budget or the Halfords professional range , car boot sales and auto jumbles are the best place to pick up the older makes .
