I need to lay out my tools and take a picture.  I'll try to do that soon.

I’d love to see them.

I've got a couple more floating around.  I also have 2 of the black Bell System B toolboxes

Nice collection. Are the end nippers in the middle row on the right stamped Bell System? If so, I’ve got some hunting to do.

Nice collection of tools. I like the old tool case, reminds me of a brief case that some new techs go around with, instead of the tool belt and pouches.

I have a few tools in my collection as well, along with a canvas tool bucket and spurs in my garage.

These tools are on my truck, still in service!
Some are used more than others, like the Bell wrenches and the “easy outs”. The chipping knife was used last fall on a lead sleeve placed in 1928. The block and tackle sure works nice when you need it!

I guess I never looked closely at the  Bell wrenches, I thought they were always Klein...
This “Billings ‘55” has been retired as of now ;)

You know, I could have sworn they were, but I just checked and they aren't marked bell system. 

I did pick up this ks-14510-L1multimeter today
