I know where all of my tools came from. My bill hook was my grandfathers, and it was manufactured in the 1930s by a company called Staniforth. My
screwdriver set (which includes several regular drivers, three stubby drivers, a ratchet screw driver and heads, and a precision screwdriver kit with
something like forty precision heads) is of the Goodyear make, and came in a VERY reasonably priced multipack from a company called Toolstream, who
supply our store with hardware items in general. My hammer also came from that company. My pliers were purchased from a company called S.E. Apex,
which no longer exists. My precision files, and my large rasps, they all came from Toolstream, as did my electrical tester screw driver, and my
hacksaw. Oh, same for my adjustable wrenches, locking pliers, craft knife, and other miscellaneous bits and bobs.
My Worx powered screwdriver was a Christmas present, and one is not supposed to know where those came from! Oh and who could forget my DeWalt DC 727
drill? That was purchased from Cash Converters in Basildon in Essex, where a good friend of mine worked at the time. I got a GREAT deal on that thing!
My locksmithing tools, including some specialist, not supposed to be available to the general public, non destructive entry tools, all came from a
company called SKS, who supply locksmiths with all manner of gear to make their lives easier! I will not go into much detail about those, but I know
where they came from!
