270207 "Eric Coyle" <ecoyle@t...> 2020‑03‑25 back to brace bits
Boredom has me trying to do more organization in the tool morass.

 

Turns out I had a roll of brace biits with the the closed loop. Hot dang!
Like going to my own garage sale

 

Took a look at the names on them.

 

One was un-named, another had Ridgeway stamped on it, 

 

Two had "whitehouse bros"  and "cannock" on them on them

 

But one had "Whitehouse and sons" and underneath that, although not real
clear was what certainly appeared to me to be the word "inventor", and below
that "unbreakable"

 

Did some searching and found these links

Pictures! Pictures! You know what we always say...

Don, thinking I may have a few of those somewhere myself, but NOT a whole roll,
and trying not to obsess about what's about to happen on this continent
