Sunday I bought the contents of a 2 car garage and a shed from the guy who has worked for me on and off for 8 years or so. He gave me first shot at the lot of stuff before he offered it to anyone else. It's mostly still packed into my 22' enclosed trailer because I'm working out of town a lot and just don't have time to go through it yet. His father was a mechanic at a dealer for 25 years and gave everything to his son when he retired. All that was included. Mostly snap on and Mac tools. A Mac & a snap on roll arounds jammed packed with tools. Here are a few pics of the trailer loaded, once I start pulling stuff out (about 2 weeks) ill take many more.
Not only was this trailer loaded, I made 2 trips with my small open trailer to get other stuff.

He sold everything because he is moving away and just wanted it all gone in one shot. He named the price and I couldn't say "Sold" fast enough.

I just pulled the triggor on a 18' X 24 that I will be assembling my self. So far less than 4 grand. I plan to start a seperate thread on this project next week, to hear the comments and critisims. I ran out of space a couple years ago.

Congrats Ken! That's an impressive load of high quality tools. I would guess it's worth well into 5 figures if you had to replace it. You may need to build a new shop to hold it all!

Those will make wonderful Christmas presents!   But, in the mean time, keep that trailer chained to something. That's a crackhead's dream to just back his truck up to it.
