Not EVEN worth it. A couple of cobbler's hammers, a breast drill,
some transitional planes (Feh!), a draw knife, and a truly hammered
(in both senses of the word) socket chisel, all in iffy condition.
Always bear in mind that your own resolution to
succeed is more important than any one thing.
-- Abraham Lincoln
Agreed that the condition of most of the stuff looks pretty poor, but
some Cobbler's hammers can bring some bucks, the tool chest alone
would get you 30 or 40 bucks (and an antique store would ask 100+ for
it), there's a nice pig sticker mortise chisel, that large turnscrew
is worth investigating, as is the fourfold rule and whatever is just
in front of it, there's what looks like another screwdriver (small
chisel?) in with the files, plus there's stuff peeking out of the
box. I don't think you'd get hurt at a $100, but that's their asking
price and you could probably get it for half that or less. I'm
guessing Uncle Frank kicked the bucket which would mean there's other
stuff for sale, and the tools would get you in the door to find out
what other stuff they have no clue about.
