Had one in '86.

That one even had the spring removal tool.

I have "most" of that set still here.

A few have gone over the years.  It was awfully hard to keep a young son 
out of MY tools!

He even took apart a measuring tape when he was about 5.  It scared the 
crap out of him.

I came back after a several weeks long mission and found it on the floor 
in the Radio Shack in Georgia.
