Tool kit comprising canvas tool bag and 114 tools including hacksaws, hammers, files, chisels, screwdrivers, pliers, measuring tape, sanding blocks, clamps and pencils. The continuing popularity of 'do-it-yourself' (DIY) home improvement resulted in a substantial market for low-cost hand tools built to withstand only infrequent use. The purchase price of this all-in-one kit of tools was far less than the costs of equivalent tools made for frequent or professional use.
