Was going down the road and saw two 5 gal buckets of stuff on the curb. Grabbed and didn't have time until now, but MAN am I happy I picked them up.

Allen wrenches, big files, box cutter, channellock brand linesman pliers, visegrips, oil filter wrenches, putty knives, brake wrenches, valve keeper tools, valve spring compressor, wire brushes, sockets, hammer handles, hammer, screwdrivers, bungy cords, most of a ridge remover, punch, wire cutters, crimp tools, a crescent wrench, screwdrivers, feeler gauges, a glass car, and more.
I Can't believe someone threw it all away and my wife can't believe someone (me) picked it up.

That's a great pile of free stuff! My cousin got a decent ride on mower and push mower right down the road. The people who bought the house a few years ago split up and neither of them were at the house for weeks on end. Finally after a year they put stuff out for sale and for free in the yard.My cousin would pass by and pick up the free stuff. When he went by one day, there were the mowers and weed whackers by the free stuff and nobody was around as usual. He loaded em' up and off he went smiling. What a score!.....until he found out later that the guy just went to the store and was planning on mowing and weed whacking, HA! Anyway, he brought the stuff back and they laughed about it.

You're a lucky man, I'd be tickled pink with a find like that. Any Snap-ons in the bunch, or is that too much to ask, lol.

WTH? If you drive by there today, drive just at the posted speed limit. There might be a squad car there hiding.

Nice haul Alan. You can always use more hand tools. They never seem to be where you want them. In my case I keep leaving them in various spots around the house and garage. I figure if you have enough tools you will eventually have a good selection left lying around everywhere you might need them!
