Son collects vintage Britool stuff and has just found a 9/32 drive socket set, why did they make these as its so close to 1/4 drive?
That was my first thought, I remember trying to get a chuck key for a Burnard 34 four jaw and vaguely recall it being something odd like 9/32.I have a king dick 9/32" ratchet & (maybe) a britool extension bar that came in a box of tools I bought. I thought I would never use them but by accident I discovered that they fit a myford 3 jaw chuck perfectly!
Thanks thats very kind of you.Winchman, on a serious note
My grandad past away 5 years ago and got a pile of his tools passed onto me, due to me having multiple newer tool kits already I just boxed it up and put it on the shelf,
I will have a look through it and if anything you want in particular will keep and eye out,
My father had a Britool hex drive AF set, last time I saw it was in the early 80's at that time the set and box were immaculate. I wonder what happened to it though sadly I suspect it was thrown out when he got his first Toyota.
Its sad what has been thrown away, often we don't realise how we may need it at some stage, I gave away loads of my Taps and Dies but now have a Son who likes vintage stuff so needs them luckily my brother gave me a lot of his as he's a proper hoarder and kept everything but sadly no Britool
