    heh ...... wonder if Roll-Rite's still in business in Janesville Wis.! t'ain't NUTHIN' like that made in this country no more![V]

    I'd even accept a ride in a Chinese-built time machine if it could drop me off in Janesville when those were bein' made there.

        I kid you not, my Grandpa had that very same model light in his tools. In the years since he passed, it's vanished, but I vividly recall that thing.

            Some years ago, I went to a local estate sale and one of the things that I found in the garage was a vacuum tester gage W/hose. It's still in it's original box. Even tho it makes no mention of being for (or by) Nash, it's clearly a 52-3 Nash depicted on the box.
            I've never used the thing - the hose is too brittle anyway - it's just cool to have around.[^]

                Well, some "old" bits are more useful than others. Here in Oz we are metric. 10 years ago, I worked in a place which had heaps of old no longer used imperial tools. When they decided to pass 'em to the scrap-metal man, I scored a bunch of imperial micrometers and a set of imperial bore gauges, all in very good nick. (Got some Whitworth taps & dies as well).

                    In the mid-70s I bought a dealer stock which included several of the 1956 accessory combination trunk light-pull out trouble lights. Pretty neat. If I can find the one I kept, I'll take pix.

                        Yeah, I'd like to see a picture of that, Paul. Thru the years I've gotten a couple of pull-out underhood/truck lites that were purportedly a Studebaker acces. item. I'd like to know if they really are!

                            I've got a hubcap remover tool, basically a pry bar with a black rubber ball on it. It's still on the hanger card, which clearly depicts a Lark hubcap.
