Mine has Rollgrip written on it. Boomans of Germany. Cant find any reference to them at all. Id like to. Cant even remember where i bought it. Im thinking it was from a tool shop we used to go to, ogle at tools we couldnt afford. They sold stuff like Stahwille, Bahco, Proto, Beta, SK Wayne. We could only afford Sidchrome, Fuller, Stanley etc. My 3/8 socket set, got at 16 yrs. Now 49 yrs old, reckon its still 70% original. Minimax. They replaced ratchets guts, unconditional guarantee, Repco agents. Mustve renewed for 30 yrs until no more parts available, maybe 4 times.

Wow they look cool! Would love to see a higher resolution photo. Can't see much in that small one. That vice looks particularly brutal.

I will take some better photos on weekend. And can share more my old tools. But not full rebuilded in that time.
I use hacksaw TOS PR20, 450kg heavy beast, MIG/MAG MEZ PP315 welding machine, 230kg heavy beast, very old Ginko drill and so on.  :onya:

Love old good tools and machines too :onya:

There's enough pollution in this world now without Irish adding to it.  ;)
If you look like your passport photo then you're too sick to travel.
