certainly bound to fill a long felt
want. One set of handles, with varl-

general utility. This combination kit
takes in various sizes and sorts of
pliers, pincers, shear tools, leather
and belt punches, tin snips, etc. The
tool Is among the notable Inventions
in tool making in recent years and
would appear Indispensable almost
