The US TE-33 Tool Kit has seen service in virtually every part of the world and has remained essentially the same since it was first issued. This tool kit was designed at a time where simple solutions were ideal and perfection was achieved often. Ultimately the TE-33 is ideal for use by soldiers who were responsible for setting up and maintaining things like radio equipment and Signal Corps facilities.

We have original military TE-33 tool kits now available for sale that are complete, including both the TL-13 pliers and TL-29 knives. These tools were produced post-WWII and came to us sealed in a wooden crate dated 1958. They were produced for use by NATO forces in Europe and for Signal Corps operations in the Korean War but were never used. Most of the TL-13 tools were preserved by dipping in beeswax and all of the pouches show signs of verdigris which is further evidence to the age of these vintage original pouches. The TL-29 knives feature wooden panels and are marked appropriately for the era, and all the tools fit perfectly into the CS-34 pouch.

Nice, new original set
It would compliment any collector of Signal Corp items. I am an electrical contractor so grabbing vintage tools are always something I look for. It was hard to compare for value since a lot of sets are used or some new and repro combined so all new was what made me get it. Review by Steve (Posted on 9/19/2016)
