Cool !

I have the speed wrenches and the little bar in Plomb, but no ratchet.

I have a 1/4" Penens ratchet at least laugh2 (and a sorta complete set of sockets too)

I recently found a Penens refrigeration wrench, very interesting sizes. It is in the lower left of the picture...along with a bunch of crazy pliers I found too. The little adjustable was made by Barca-Buffalo, the same company that makes BarcaLoungers. drinking

My dad has complete socket and combo wrench sets from Proto and Challenger that he still uses.

Are those LA wrenches long? Or regular? the size designation number has an 'L' after it if they are long...

Edit: this Armstrong ratchet looks pretty old...still doing research on it.

That ratchet sure looks like an oldey, cool!!

I have a bunch of other wrenches too, some no branded ones, but older obviously. (some only same USA, etc on them, some only sizes)


This BluePoint looks older... never looked it up or anything though.

This page might be useful...

http://home.comcast.net/~alloy-artifacts/snapon-bluepoint-tools.html#box-end

The date code for your wrench is on the other side....I attached the decoder...



Thanks for sharing your collection...it is amazing the other hobbies car guys share that you might never touch on talking mopars.

Edit: I noticed that the blue point brand was used for wrenches and the snap on brand was used for sockets and driving tools until the 50s...kinda interesting fact.

That is a bad rivet gun...do you use it?

Thanks for the link!

I have a ton of different ones aside from these even...and always picking up more.

(Estate sales..can't help but buy them when ever I see old tools)

That is really cool with the different fonts ! And interesting on the wrench vs sockets for Snap-On/Blue Point. I have some other wrenches I'll have to look over as well.

Oh, and on the rivet gun...nope it is just an extra really. I have the original instruction sheet for it too..dated 1959!

No tool, just the wooden box it came in. The logo burned into the sliding lid says 'Pratt & Whitney Co. Small Tool Division Hartford, Conn, U.S.A.' The quarter is to help show the box size.
