Oh, man. You bought a bunch of upside down stuff.

Look, I'm your friend, so I'll take it off your hands and we'll never mention this to anyone.

Remove the tube and put the Sekai box on ebay. Start the auction at $40.

That third hand is just like the one I've been using since the 70s, but made of heavier guage. Prolly works better.
What is in the round tin at the bottom?

The Proofide tin looks just like the one I've got... '70s I think for mine (don't remember buying it).

Not too bad; doing some handyman work for a little cash, getting lots of stuff done around the house (15 years of maintenance and remodel projects that were too big to take on while working 56 hours a week). I've applied for a job at USPS which I hope I actually get, because it starts part time and the pay is not horrible, for around here. My schoolteacher wife is afraid she might lose her job due to Covid complications, so depending on her mood, the anxiety level in our cave is pretty high sometimes w/o me having a 'real' job yet.

Don't really miss the hotel at all; not sure we could have kept the place viable this year, so it turns out we bailed out at the right time. The new hotel the new owners planned seems to have stalled, so there's just a big hole in the ground where the old place used to be.

I have several of the same tools, including the Rivoli chain breaker, the cone wrenches, the third hand, the freewheel extractors, and the Sugino BB tool set, not to mention the Proofide and the patch kit -- good stuff.

lots of nice stuff!
it looks like there is a crank tool next to the Proofide... it almost looks like a Stronglight puller, but not quite. Got any close-up shots of it??

It has Sugino stamp on it, puller. Check out vintage tire scrapers

if the Sugino tool is anything like the Stronglight, the socket used to remove the bolt is also used to turn the puller. A neat bit of efficiency. They both use a rod as the lever, instead of resorting to a wrench. Not sure why they did it, but it certainly avoids having the user apply excessive torque with a huge wrench.

The tire savers are ones that I've used, and still have one. They were pretty good.

In New Mexico, they are sticker flickers. 30 years ago they were nearly standard equipment in goat head country.

Do you mount them to be just clear of the tire?

my experience was long ago, but ... I'd say that the goal is to have the tire savers just barely contact the tire.
This is an aspirational goal, since the rim and the tire aren't perfectly round.
An additional consideration is that when the tire saver contacts the tire, it will wear on the tire saver. Eventually, the tire will grind away the tire saver until there is no more contact.
I don't run over enough stuff to need tire savers, so it's mostly a theoretical concern for me.
They were really a larger value in the days when everyone was using tubulars, since a flat tubular tire was a bigger hassle to repair.

Lith-ease! I have a tub of that exact stuff I use on all the low-end bikes. Good bikes get the Park grease.
Main distinction is that good bikes and Park grease stay upstairs in the living area and low-end and Lith-Ease stay downstairs in the dungeon where they are berated and hazed by the antique tandem collection.
This makes me feel better, that there's someone else using the stuff for bicycles.
