Car booty 26/08/2013

Today we went to the local car boot sale.

I wasn’t expecting much, as previous sales have been almost completely devoid of tools, but I was pleasantly surprised.

The star find of the day was my first purchase:

Nobex Proman 110

It’s mounted to a length of timber, with a FrameCo Ezy Measure System extension

There’s a little rust on the end stop:

I used one of these at a picture framing course on my recent holiday and found that having two clamps (one either side of the blade) was handy, so I may need to buy another one of these:

Also included were its original box and two quick clamps, presumably for fixing the saw to a bench or table:

Quick clamps

  • Assorted screwdrivers – £1.50


This little lot includes a Leyris ratchet screwdriver, an I Sorby and a Stanley.

  • Hand vice – 50p

  • Plane blade & chipbreaker – 50p

I can’t make out the mark on this, other than “Cast Steel, Sheffield”:

  • Total tool spend: £11.50
  • Total other spend: £0
