antique automotive tools Sign In

I have some vintage automotive tools for sale and I have no idea what they are worth, if someone could help me out here I would appreciate it
I have a timing kit, it is about 3 ft long, all glass, in a metal case with glass front, it looks like all the parts are there, but not sure,
I have a kit for doing king pins and camber adjustment in the original metal box, it looks like all parts are there
I have a batter tester, looks like something from Frankenstein, has a built in light to read the dial
I have a large, glass, anti freeze tester in the original box
thanks in advance for any help you can give meLaugh

Cool. Agree with trying to post pics canoeman53. You should be able to edit your own post. I think the mods should allow this as it isn't competing with anything. See that you are new to the site.

We can't allow links to other sites but if needed links to a picture site is fine.

I know this much so far. Prices are down for some things. Antiques in general aren't fetching the bucks they once did at least around me but car nuts you never know?

OK - it's near impossible for me anyway with the site's tricks but you can pick a site like Photobucket among several and copy/paste from there to here.

I think we just posted all together here - happens. Go for it at one or another and if it shows here use that,

Go to a picture hosting site such as Photo Bucket and follow the directions.

Re: antique automotive tools Sign In

I've been uploading pics into the forum storage and then linking them to the threads.

http://autoforums.carjunky.com/...for_The_Forums_P897/

Once you get the link address, copy the link address.

Paste the link address(es) in here or if you want your images to show up in your post:

click code button twice in your edit box when submitting a post
example: [cod.e][/cod.e] dot was inserted, so you can see the function.

erase only the words code and insert the letters "img" in their places. Paste your link in the middle between the two inner brackets.

Should look like this without the s:

[imgs]your link address here[/imgs] I substituted the word imgs instead of "img", so you could see the function.



I can tell that RT is all excited and drooling on his keyboard...

Re: antique automotive tools Sign In

I had never used the on-site image hosting but here a shot at it.




I guess that is why I never did. It screws up too easily. If you go with something like Photobucket it seems to be much easier. They supply an image link that you simply click on it to copy it and then paste it here.

That is one way to do it . I mail the subject (pic ,text page etc) to myself .Open photo bucket ,Click upload ,click upload from email . Photo bucket gives you a menu under the pic .click on (IMG.....IMG) . In your reply box on junky , right click and paste .

E-mail to myself?
What's up with that?

You can save any pic to you drive by right clicking on it and "save image" and you can upload anything from your drive. Photobucket also has an app for Firefox that lets you upload directly from your browser with a right click.

Re: antique automotive tools Sign In

I have had some documents that would not save for some odd reason . Maybe it's my puter, it seems to have a mind of it's own once in a while. I get around it by doing the email thing .It loads into photobucket every time and I can edit the picture as usall. I don't do it that way all the time . . I just save and upload....like the rest of the world. I dont use firefiox . It's what ever works right?

RT - Whatever works and I'm no IT geek. Even when I've figured out something right to the end they change something???? It will all end for something else and is already in Japan and most of Asia so forget it. They won - virus and hacker proof.

I forget the exact date but this entire site and everything all of us or anyone posted was fried all at once. The owner did pay for some huge back up set up and still took days to download almost everything but things were lost here.

Expect change. Hang on to your hats,

Tom
