 I missed two sets of Honda balance gauges at an estate sale but I was holding my money for a bike that sold later. I still don't have a good set.

Still my favourite Honda tool. +45 years old now, so I gave them a serious clean up a few months ago.
They look great.

I have the same Honda vac gauges and you could too!

It is a lot, I paid $100 for mine.  And they are hanging on the wall but do get used periodically.

Well my Dad had a machine guns I think MG 34.. and it didn't come from Kmart.. maybe Aldi..
 But he lost it when he was taken prisoners I think 1945..
 So growing up we only had pellet guns.
 But at about 13 I joined army cadets.. we had cool rifles.. heavy old .393 Enfields . BREN guns a short time, SMG,s.
 I only got to fire the semi auto FN C1A1, the rest were boltvaction.
 So I did learn to shoot without ever owning a firearm..

 Above for those that see the pic is my Dad's old Wright set. I notice I've robbed the extension and swivel from it. The search is on. The 3/8 is out of the pic. it's on a carabiner for some reason.  I added an off brand 5/16" end wrench just because it didn't have one.
 I get a kick out of the hex drive sockets at the top. I'm sure it's missing one or two.

   My buddy had a hard time using his late Dad's tools, I'm proud to.
