  1. I'll post it as well on another site... Those guys are pretty good at knowing what's what, especially vintage stuff. They knew about the broaches and even explained how they're used etc etc.
  2. Number 5 - (possible spring bar tool) has been spoken for by manodeoro. Broach Set has been spoken for by Mike (mk1s), which will include #2 - (smoothing tool maybe?)
  3. Mike send me a PM of your address and I'll check when I'm there. I'm curious myself, I've never shipped anything overseas before. Maybe it's just a rumour it's expensive, I don't know. We'll see...
  4. Hey Mike, I'll only pay the shipping to somewhere in the Continental US... However, if you'd like me to check on cost to the UK and you're willing to pay for it. I don't see a reason not to ship to you. Additional info on the Broaching set, for you and everyone else. I stand corrected, these are cutting broaches... Not smoothing broaches. Someone on another site explained what they are, how they work, and possibly that they are Swiss made or Sweden maybe.. I forgot which exactly. There is a smoothing broach in there as well. The one pictured up top at the start of this thread. I stuck it in there with the rest.
  5. Another item up for give away. I had these tucked in another place... From the same gentleman that previously owned the Watch Clock repair/Jewelery shop. This is a vintage set of watchmaker/clockmakers smoothing/cutting broaches. You'll need an appropriate pin vise to use them of course. They didn't photograph well, sorry... The previous owner owned the Boley vise and other high end tools so I doubt these are cheap knockoffs or what not. Should be a decent set is my point. If you can use them, make claim to them and, let me know. Cheers...
  6. Sorry I haven't been around to respond. And the notification doesn't send email notification for some reason. Maybe a setting.. anyway. Yes they're still available. Don't worry about shipping, I'm not along anyone to pay anything. I have it covered. A gift is a gift. As long as they'll be useful to someone, I'm sure the owner would want them to have them. He's the one to thank. I'm just passing them out and seeing they get to those that want them.
  7. There's several editions of the Rolls Razor. I have one myself. The one in your pic, given the case, is probably the Silver Edition of the Imperial 2 Rolls Razor. Ones without the case were nickel. And there's several other editions as mentioned. How you tell them apart is the exterior design on the metal case. Personally, I like the Rolls. And there's some interesting facts about the company and the owner. The owner, even after the company folded took all the inventory he had of the Rolls and up till it ran out or he passed away (I can't remember which) he honored the warranty and you could buy blades and replacement parts from him. Just by writing to him in England somewhere. I heard great things about him online. Not something you see from many, especially after the company folds. You can get the blades rehoned true. A couple places do it and one offers new blades they themselves make for them. Practice on a balloon.. I did. Lol. A fresh open blade on that thing.. it'll make you nervous bringing it to you face the first time. There's a video of a guy on YouTube of a guys first time with the Rolls and what he thought of the shave.. He liked it from what I remember. Felt it was as close as he was getting from other blades he tried. So.. I "saw" a very interesting 7 day set at the antique shop where i bought my Rolls. I've never seen another like it. I don't know who made it, maybe you do. It was a complete valay(sp?) of wood, dark in color. It included the brush, cup and a rack which held 7 razors, each marked for the day of the week. The rack which was metal, and all the razors where gold plated. Or gold... I wasn't allowed to touch it but he did show it to me. Price tag was up there, I remember that. Way up there. He had it in its own display case right next to his desk. The handles and razor rack where all scrolled and fancy. It sure was pretty... Like a Rolls, as far as the blades, but definitely not a Rolls. Ever seen one like it?
  8. There's still 4 items available. Any other takers on what's left? Take one, take all. Free for the asking. Cheers...
  9. @calcmandan Good story. I've owned and wore light pink sport jacket, a Miami Vice kinda thing. I like Pink the singer. And hot pink on some girls... My business card was Hyper blue with Hot pink lettering and everyone loved it. Never crossed my mind till you just mentioned it about the Breast Cancer color thing. So your comment hit home as I had the exact thought you mentioned after you brought it up. "Oh yeah, that's right.!" Lol This was one of a bunch of purple and hot pink envelopes another business had that no longer needed them. I gave all but a couple away. Hot pink and the others were purple. First time I've had a chance to use them. I gave them to a ebayer here that sells auto parts. About a hundred or so. He loved them so much after using them he asked if I had more. For one, they were the perfect size for some of his parts. His customers loved them since they instantly recognized a package from him. And his sales increased once he started using them. He also noticed packages seemed to get to the destination faster. I guess if you're looking at white and manila envelopes all day a hot pink or purple one would stand out. They'll definitely see it coming! Lol. Hard to lose a package that color. If I were a business, I'd definitely consider using bright colored envelopes for mailing. Something that makes it stand out from the others. Cheers...
  10. @calcmandan Screwdriver set has been shipped. Tracking number sent via PM I don't think you'll have a problem recognizing the package when it arrives.. heh heh heh Enjoy! Cheers...
  11. @jdm Your hot stamp kit has been shipped. Tracking number sent to via PM Enjoy! Cheers...
  12. Yeah, no sleep till tonight. Had to pull everything out of the shop, paint it floor to ceiling, wait to it to dry enough, then put it all back. That was a long 24hrs... 90% tools, work bench, floor to ceiling shelving packed with more tools... I've been putting it off for 4 months. Yesterday morning I said screw it. It's getting done, now! And it all had to be done before others arrived that work in the building. Fast forward to this morning... Even the morning 2 cups of coffee ain't helping I'm so beat. Lol But it's done. Huge difference! Worth the work. So, I'll sleep good tonight!
  13. Lol... I was just coming to post a new pic on the screwdriver set. I was up all night painting the micro shop I have and finally got things put back and had a couple hours to kill since sleep is out of the question this early so I decided to kill a couple hours cleaning them up. There's 2 vintage Brass. One Brass and SS top. One SS I think with Aluminum removable top (Red). Two SS (I think) with plastic top. And one LS Starret (a very nice driver, you'll see). A nice variety set so you can see what kind you prefer. I didn't do a full blown detail on them. But given they've been sitting in storage for what.. 30, 40 years I wanted them to at least look respectable. I'll let you detail them out. Lol They are yours... Send a PM with your mailing address, I'll send them out in the next couple days. Here's a pic of them as they look now. Cheers...
  14. Great! Stamping set is yours! Send me your mailing address via PM I'll send it out over the next few days. Cheers...
  15. So everyone knows that's interested, all these tools where owned and used by the same watch/clock repair, jeweler that owned the Boley C60 I refurbished and posted about here in the forum. Best I can tell he was still in business back in 1979 locally. Of course since, retired, and passed away. As stated, I'm just trying to pass on some little things I managed to aquire that were his tools of the trade. Not the Boley C60 though.. that one I'm keeping for a bit. :-) It's a real nice vise. Cheers...
