Those Knipex smooth jaw pliers someone posted earlier are great. If you can only get one get the larger one

Ha Les thank you for that. Sometimes it takes one to get the point across. ;) I will say though, I do need a better soft mallet, so not too far away from the truth.

I am filling up my shopping cart here: https://www.classicbritishspares.com/collections/tools
Also I am going to pony up the 12USD for the re-print of the Norton Tools Catalogue to insert in the back of my workshop manual binder.

Thanks all.

Slammer, Are you still looking for wrenches? I have a set of Bedford open ends (5 pcs)

I'll watch out for a set of Koken sockets.

FWIW, I scored a pile of dirty vintage wrenches on eBay for $10. Most are well used, but they are all usable mix of vintage (60s) British/USA SAE/Whitworth and odd angles which is exactly what I was looking for (vs. typical shaped open/box end). Can't beat that price. I did buy a small clean set from a member here for $30, and a Tipco for $3 including shipping. So my Norton toolbox is good with wrenches now. (I'll leave my overpriced snap-on tools in the snap-on roller.) I am going to have to get some small sockets though. More hunting.
