Picture Attachment problem (09 Jul 2022)

Due to the extraordinary growth of the membership and resources, we are once again bumping up against hosting limits. I am working on a fix. In the meantime, the forum should function, but you won’t be able to attach images. Working as fast s we can to fix. Thanks for your patience. - Makotosun

Grungy Tools was created by 1971DT250

This is a NOS tool set after sitting on a shelf for 50 years. All the tools in all my Enduros are grungy. They are difficult to clean without taking the finish off down to bare metal. The pouches seem to deteriorate and stain the tools. I'm having some refinished but will find another way to store and carry them.


 
 
The hours spent riding my Enduros is not deducted from my life span.

They could easily be re-plated at home, I've been re-zinc plating some of my bolts/nuts/washers that haven't been destroyed from slipped wrenches or badly rusted.

Perhaps then a leather pouch to stow the tools in… a bit of oil…?

That’s called patina and it is 100% proper.

I agree, I would leave them original.
