    Re: Check out these wrenches I just recieved!!

    Gear Junkie, my oldest wrenches are from 1896 to 1897, and didn't the Model T come out 1917, so these wrenches couldn't be part of the tool kit, if I'm right on my dates.

        I use to use a wrench just like that (not as old) when tapping water mains for a water service. It would fit the tap and a couple parts on the tapping machine.

          Come to find out the large heavy wrench is related to rail road work.

          I just have 2 questions left...

          1. I still don't see how those 1890 wrenches are related to the model t.

          2. What is the tool on the right used for? I would really like to know.

            Aaron,
            Henry ford didn't invent the wrench (it was already in use)for service on his cars but everyone became familar with the wrench because of the Model T. I used to live in Ms. and they have a car show called "Cruisin the Coast". I met someone who had a mint model t w/ paperwork and it had an original inventory of the tool box and that's how I found out about it. In short, your wrench came before the model t but I don't know what it was called before 1917. English is my second language so let me know if that makes sense.
            Buy cheap, buy twice.
