Rosanne's uncle died several months ago. He lived with Rosie's sister's family for the last three or four years and was a bigger pack rat than me. Over that time he had accumulated a basement full (no exaggeration) of tools and such. Vicki asked me to come over to help her price some of the stuff and said I could have anything I wanted. Since I didn't have my 24 foot enclosed trailer with me I just stuck to enough stuff to fill three five gallon buckets. I had a decent 4" grinder, some extra taps for chasing threads, a couple of grinding wheels and a good assortment of standard size nuts and bolts. There were a few other things, like several vice grips (real ones) some clamps and gear pullers but that was about it.
I found one box sitting on a shelf that I had to check out. When I opened it I found this.
I opened it up and found someone had recently put new batteries in it but they have poor record keeping.
I tested the voltage capabilites and it reads pretty good. I never had a chance to test
the ohms but the only resistance I ever find around here is when I ask Rosie to fix dinner.
The negative wire had become so brittle that it had cracked at every fold.
Under the tester I found a pair of antique ear wax extractors in like new condition.
After very extensive research, (I Googled "Grass Instruments") I found that Grass Instruments is more well known for medical equipment. Does anybody know anything about this company?
By the way, I did aquire a few hits on "Blue Grass Instruments". Now, let's see, where did I lay my mandolin! I love that music.
