You cunting bastard arsebandit motherfucker.
I think what you have there is a PotatoPhone photograph.
but aside from that.
you have internal and external screw calipers, I beleive those are by Starret, and if so, they're fucking great tools.
there 4 micrometers there of various sizes, which are superb tools for accurate measurement.
the wood box, taps and dies, for screw cutting and thread-cutting on rod and holes respectively.
the round things with four holes in them are dies, which should mount into a sort of two-armed wrench. Each one should be punched with a number or letters. ie, 1/4 WW (1/4 inch Whitworth) or M6 (metric M6). Given the sizes, and the thread pitch on the taps (the screw-like pieces that are used to cut threads into holes), I expect they'll be non-metric.
the cardboard box looks like drill bits, all well stored. take one or two out and look and see if they have any name markings on them? Look to me like pillar drill bits, possibly with a 1MT taper on the ends.
All you're missing to make that set complete, precise, and totally useful is metric dial calipers... Joking! Whether you bought it cheap or it fell in your lap, good job anon! I'm jealous!
Cool, thanks for the info!
These were in there too, just got to them. wtf I tried drilling a hole with one but it didn't work
You utter cunt. What I'd give for spiral flute reamers like those.
and in case you really are that clueless. tehy're used when you drill out a hole, to smooth the hole, or to widen it.
some are also used to shape a hole into a taper, to make what's called a taper pin, a fastening used in engineering.
Looks cool, but I can't read it, the numbers don't really make sense. Thinking of using the case for a nice harbor freight digital one where I can actually read the numbers
Don't listen to these trolls OP, those are high speed friction bits. To make them work efficiently you have to have a lathe or mill capable of at least 7500 rpm, and they work the best with a fast feed rate, 6 inches/minute minimum, it's a horsepower/torque tradeoff thing. They got too expensive to produce, and Chinese machines just aren't up to the task anyway, so you don't see them much anymore, they really aren't worth much to you. I'll gladly take them off your hands for whatever your cost was. Email me, OP.
>Thinking of using the case for a nice harbor freight digital one where I can actually read the numbers
for OP, just in case he's stupid enough to listen to the colossal dickhead who'd wanting to either have you break them, or make a quick buck.
go read this.

Please be a troll.
I'm pretty sure OP has a clue what those are, and if you ever frequent other diy/how-to boards you'll recognize the "that sucks, give it to me" routine as a well intentioned joke immediately. It's a joke dude, calm your tits and let me get back to salivating and living vicariously over OP's haul!
Who would've thought being able to add 25 would suddenly be so cool and important?
The cardboard box wasn't drill bits by the way, they're flat at the end. All of them.
OP, you're a cheeky bastard trolling us all, aren't you? My money is on you being a machinist that either had a buddy/mentor retire and give this stuff to you, or you hit an auction and picked it up for cheap.
>i know what all of that stuff is, and yeah, you did well op
did he tho? depends on how much he paid and how much he needed anything there...
some of it you can get pretty cheap from China or Harbor Freight
some of the taps and reamers is visibly dull or dinged up... some show rust and pitting (junk)
some of the dies are solid (not split),,, so aren't adjustable, and may be not-useful thread sizes (whitworth, bsf, ba, various conduit or pipe threads ect--stuff that is really only useful for making parts for vintage machinery)
HSS end mills that size can be had for <$5 new, <$2 for ebay stubby regrinds
the big vernier caliper would be useful, but new China ones only cost $30
stuff like this isn't necessarily valuable, just old (nice display pieces but often not good to use)
for free it would be a pretty good deal, but I would not pay anything for "mystery boxes of old machinist stuff" unless I could look through it all first
there's a lot of crap out there not worth dragging home
2 small hole gages
a machinist square
thread chasing dies
lot of endmills
decent depending on how much you paid for
its probably toolbox auction bro , he posts his toolbox hauls all the time
