I have the 15pc punch/chisel set from SnapOn. Bought it over 30 years ago for I think $150 which was a lot for a struggling mechanic back in the day. Paid it off $20/wk. I never owed Snappy more than $500 over the years... I use the center punches and chisel at least once a week and the quality is superb.

The transfer station always presents "Trash Treasures" this week was exceptional. Some folks were cleaning out a property somewhere in the valley. They started dumping piles of tools and whatnot We were sort of taken aback like why don't you have a yard sale or auction. "We don't have time it has to go NOW!" Well, alrighty then talk about a feeding frenzy. I grabbed what I was interested in as I came in and out of transfer. We are talking racks of sockets, floor jacks wrench sets galore, a worm drive Skilsaw. Etc Etc. The Bead Breaker Slde Hammer with requisite "Pigeon Shit" showed up a few days ago. The Disston Handsaw & bone saw I grabbed this A.M. I've been thinking some manual tools in the stash may be invaluable later. Amazon delivered replacement tips for the Weller soldering gun today it works like a champ. So, my name is Tim and I am a "Tool Hoarder"

I do not think that you have a problem at all. You are just following in your fathers footsteps in collecting for your kids.

Like father, like son. My son likes to collect things too, unfortunately just not tools.

I stopped back at the yard sale today. I wanted to return a shop smith jointer guard that was in one of my boxes instead of on the machine. Glad I did. Someone had stopped in and bought it earlier, but had not picked it up yet.

I spied another snap on tool box, with an old black and decker metal cased drill, and a big lot of drill bits. $20. Couldn’t resist again.

Found out that their dad was a snap on salesman for years. Did woodworking as a hobbie.

Do you have an immediate use for them? You're going to go broke buying the 4x4s to use with them. One thing I don't miss is working while standing on them and the precarious attachment methods some would use like a couple bent over nails. I haven't seen them in use for years--seems like everyone is using scaffolding nowadays...

I used pump jacks once. They were a little rickety for me. Used a rope after that. Felt much more secure.
