Yes, nice looking tools. I've sent a PM.

Thanks for sharing!

All I know is, if I were to stumble into that pile of tools at a garage sale, my head would explode. I don't know what all of them are for, but I would buy them up just to take them home and stare at them.

That's about all most of that stuff is good for...precision measuring tools need much better care to hold accuracy and pass calibration.

Curt, I agree that the precision tools need to be handled with care and well maintained.
But the pictures you posted are a little too neat and appear not to have used in a working shop.
No metal chips and no dust. Looks more show than go.
Are the mic even tenth mics?
If you are a QC inspector or tool room machinist? Then I would understand.

No disrespect intended, just my observation

I have used mics like that to clamp stuff to my work bench so I can cut to length with a hatchet.
Like I said, I like looking at cool old machinist tools...
