You do nice work on those tool rolls.

I recently found this rust-laden set tucked away in a corner of my trunk under a piece of carpeting. What identifying marks should I look for to evaluate whether original or replacement? Any tips on rust removal, cleaning and restoration? Worth doing? They seem pretty solid.

Finally got them cleaned up and the adjustable working through its range. For the moment they are coated in Boshield to prevent rusting. What is the proper way to finish them?

Not saying it's correct but it does look good - paint the spanners Satin black and once dry polish off the flat faces maybe leaving a light grain using sand paper, polish the flat of the pliers too, the screwdriver again black but polish the linished ends, I think the box spanner and Tommy bar could be silver or black.


Btw still have toolkit/tool rolls still available!

Henry posting a photo of his original tool roll gives me the opportunity to post a photo of my replica which I think demonstrates how accurate it is:

I don't think the idea is to use the tools, just have them for collectability etc... :lol:
