    Got one of these Kintrim carpet scribe cutters off Ebay for $15 + $10 shipping. No box or instructions but I was thinking it's so cool I may find a use for it.

    Couldn't resist. It's an obsession now, buying these old, somewhat peculiar tools if I can get them cheap enough.

    That's unreal you send me one with the other tool free and now you turn around and buy one. I still thank you for mine.
    Careful collecting get in the blood and you end up like me spending thousands more on the old tools and not the new ones.

    It's not that I'm RICH and can afford whatever I want. But I do buy what I want and then DONT buy something else that busts the household budget.

    Compared to bars, drugs, women, fast or fancy cars, fine dining, fishing gear or a hundred other......diversions this is a fairly cheap vice for me. I do sell off about 20-30% of the crap I accumulate from Ebay, swap meets, yard sales and Craigslist. I at least break even on those sales and more frequently can sell stuff for quite a bit more that I paid thus financing the.........hobby!

    A few other guys also thought my tool pictures were meant as a sales promotion. I was just slow for a while and decided to inventory my tools for.......accounting and insurance purposes. Anyways, I have more tools than I'll ever use. Some are not for sale. Some I would sell. There's nothing special about those Armstrong S-33 Selvedge Trimmers. Crain Tools now makes this:

    What welding stuff and knives interest you specifically? Maybe I can "hook you up" as they say over here.

    Hi incognito sorry for late response. I was after the bullet type welding tips and the long coving nozzle A armstrong selvedge trimmer and the gundlach airway knife . Are you interested in selling any of your dividers or hinged scribers aswell ? ;)

    I guess I should inventory my stuff some day. I work around guys who are sub contractors that dont even own a fraction of what you got. I mainly do resilient and I know guys that dont even have a floor machine to sand or scrap with. The one guy made a roller out of round concrete cores and a lawn mower handle and i think what a disgrace to the trade. Very unprofessional in my opinion

    A cheap alternative to the expensive blade is a snap blade like wall paper guys use. I havent tried it because im always using my forbo trimmer.

    I'm an employee. A lot of the tools are not required of a union installer to furnish (technically) like 100 lbs roller, sanders, welders, power stretchers, demo equipment, shop vacs.......those (in theory) are delivered to the site and removed with company trucks (yeah, right)

    In reality the shop forgets, fails or sends out such garbage that the majority of guys (who actually work steady) are humping around their own stuff. I draw the line at certain stuff but in a pinch I have pretty much everything I need for resilient INSTALLATION and prep.

    You should see what happens to a 100 lbs roller when it's community property. It's a shame. I was sent to install 3000' glue down bamboo and the shop sent out a roller that didn't roll because obviously it had been dropped off the stakebed, a loading dock or down a flight of stairs.

    I re-named that tool the 100 lbs DRAGGER. It doesn't roll so you have to drag it. Besides that it's filthy so even if it did roll you'd scratch the hell out of the floor. So I sent that back and humped my own roller out to the job that week. Pisses me off though. Our travel compensation REALLY doesn't cover brakes, tires, insurance, transmission.......let alone the gas and time. OK, now I'm rambling.

    See, I'm mainly INCOGNITO so I can bitch about things anonymously and not hurt anyone's feelings. My boss would want to argue........not that he has a leg to stand on.

    I'm crazy busy as well for the next few weeks CWE. I'm a little confused because none of the stuff you're asking for isn't available online excepting the antiques/collectibles. Is the issue that they won't ship overseas?

    You're wanting to use the tools, right?
