Proving that my dad was right again! "If you look long enough and hard enough, you'll eventually find what you want for a price you're willing to pay".
Came across a 6" shank standard Malco driver today. Needs handle polished up and the tip refinished, but for $3 I couldn't pass it up.

I really like malco. The quality of their hole  cutter and tongs are second to none. As far as snips, ive only used Midwest and i like them alot.

I have not been tool hunting at all the last few years, but when I was routinely cruising the hock shops and junk stores I did keep an eye out for Malco snips, crimp tools and benders. Essentially all the pliers looking Malco tools I could find cheap I bought. Incredible how cheap you could find those tools if you were not in a hurry. I have most of the stuff shown in the pics except the hammer and a few of the smaller odds and ends.
You boys better hold on cause I'm gonna have to stand on it!

It's too bad Malco has gone foreign outsourced on alot of their stuff. Especially their screwdrivers, which are Chinese acetate jobbies. Yuk.

I came across a 5-fingered crimper recently but didn't take it as I've just got so many dupes crammed in the tool box.

I know, I know - I should buy another box.  :-[

you can ALWAYS use another set of crimpers.
