That .5" ratchet in the middle looks like a snap on that is fairly new, not sure about the rest. I do love antique tools, cool stuff!

Cool stuff.

I have some really old tools that belonged to my father in law (deceased) that come in handy from time to time.
Every time I use one I tell my wife that her dad's tools saved the day.

I've got things I don't even know what they are.

I have a set of old blue point tappet wrenches.

I have my dad's old snap on tool chest. Believe he got it in the 1940's. He worked as a mechanic from before the war, the big one.

Also have his last snap on chest as well.

Thing is I took all of his oldest tools and and put them into his old chest. Sort of an old tool museum for me. Several different brands of tools.
