Hi Tony,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry. So that I may best assist you, can you please confirm that the collection totals 8 planes, 1 clamp, 1 torch, 3 hinged measures, 1 awl(? - it's a corkscrew looking thing), 1 small hammer, 1 wrench and 1 square?

Are all of them signed/marked? Can you tell me which ones are signed/marked?
