    So, here are my thoughts. I'm blessed to have a large surplus of tools and have a lot that are just taking up space in my shrinking garage.
    I'd like these to go to a kid(s) maybe working on a father son project or just interested in learning how to use them. If we can't find kids who can use them then maybe a Habitat project or Church program.
    Most of the tools are some form of Chineseium and will need to be cleaned up a little but definitely useable. Screwdrivers, wrenches, pliers, cutters, fifty-leven Allen wrenches, tap handles and just random schtuff... First come first serve gets the pick of what box or boxes they want.
    The cantilever box is a vintage Kennedy and pretty roached but could be cleaned up with some elbow grease and be used for something but doesn't have any tools in it.
    If an adult wants them that's cool just give me your word you'll pay it forward.

    I would love to take a shot at cleaning up that cantilevered box.

    if you want to wait to see if there is a father/son team that wants to tackle it I’m good with that, just let me know.

    It's yours, just pay it forward somehow. Just an FYI, the center latch is intact but the outside latches are missing the retention nubs? on top.

    Very cool offer @LizardKing !

    if you were closer I’d snag the tools for my mini me. He uses mine all the time and it’s difficult for me to find them when I need them!

    I'll be glad to hand them off if anybody is heading that way from this way.

    Hmmm, missing nubbins, I think I can find some. I’ll find something to pass along in the next few days, might even be tool related.

    The Kennedy box is gone and I'd like to get the other 2 in the hands of someone who can use them.

    I’m headed up to Boone Thursday for the weekend if anyone needs transport. I can probably add some items to the boxes to get a kid started.

    If we can work out meeting to grab the coleman cooler @LizardKing has, I can grab the tools and get them to @DangerRuss sometime in the next couple weeks.

    My son would love the tools. He's very psycho-motor and love using tools, so I want to help him build his own kit. I just can't get down that way, but if someone could grab them I could meet @DangerRuss
