I've inherited some of my fathers tools, and his toolbox (my toolbox was actually a better brand, but not Dad's and didn't have the rolling bottom half).
Anyway here is the draw of his Stahlwille set he bought when he was a 17 year old green appendice, 66 years ago. Yes there are some odd and sods too, as things were lost and replaced. I have little use for most of them, as not metric, but they won't be going anywhere:
First 2 turnings, for me, from my old lathe. I made a temporary tool post out of many pieces of 5mm plate, but when I get serious I'll make one out of a solid machined block.
Also I need to reshim the feed slide (correct term?) as there is play in the rear slide. This and my trmporaey tool post likely explains the slightly rough turning finish ... but its not that bad for manual feed and just mild steel.
I too have some of my Dad's tools and they are among my most cherished possessions. He got me a set of Craftsman tools and a small toolbox for my birthday soon after I got my first Alfa. The toolbox is old and battered but by golly it's way more than just a toolbox.
You are going to love your lathe. It's down right amazing how many times mine has come to the rescue!
Yep, but I've instructed myself to stop playing with it and get back on the 1750! I've also got my very first toolbox back, that I used to take to the track. I'm going to give that to my son, as it a good one to take places ...
OK, I may grow to regret this as I have way too many hobbies....
Just bought this.
1974 GTV. Not much for now, I think it was red new. Rusted but does run & drive ok.

Hello, AlfaBB. I am a idiot and a few months ago I bought this:
1974 Alfa Romeo GTV Project on Bring A Trailer
Is it ugly? Yes. Did I overpay? Certainly. But restoring it should be....fun? That's the plan, anyway - make it look less ****. Join me in my suffering.
I am also posting this on...
So, an issue popped up yesterday, actually a couple of days back but it revealed itself yesterday.
So a couple of day ago I noticed while starting the car there was a sort of a thudding sound just as I started it that wasn't there before. I think the sound happened on two starts and I kinda...
I have a Bertone cup, Junior 1972 model and should have gearbox change.
What is the best way to change the gearbox, Out with engine or not?
It looks pretty cramped on top of the clutch housing to get bolts if one takes out gearbox but not engine.
How long does it take to get out engine...
