In my sorting of 'stuff' in the garage came across a couple of sets of jumper leads which neither of my lads wanted- 'throw them dad' they said (they have modern hybrid vehicles). The socket set which was BSF and Whitworth are similarly excess to requirements as are the open ended and ring spanners.
Oh dear they were so expensive to get as well (it was 50 years ago).

Donít dump the leads not everybody has hybrid cars. Sockets could be useful for owners of old vehicles.

OMG don't throw them, I restore old British bikes and Whitworth/BSF/BSCy stuff is dead handy.
