Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2013: What is this tool ?
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Karl Gilchrist on Sunday, October 27, 2013 - 05:59 pm:

This came in a lot of tools from my grandfathers estate I suspect is T related given the serial number . Does any one know what it does ?

Generally speaking, its called a spanner wrench. That's for sleeves on packing glands on pumps and certain industrial bearing retaining nuts that are round with no wrench flats.

It's not T. Machine tool.

Hi: The only thing I think it may possibly be used on a model T is the water pump packing nut. It would have to be an accy water pump to have a nut with holes instead of slots or just a hex nut. More than likely its as trooper said above, its a machine tool spanner ....

I think Jack Daron nailed this one. For some reason, something about a 3-jaw or 4-jaw chuck sort of "rings a bell" with me.

It's still a spanner,made them in all kinds of sizes. Troup was right,I just couldn't remember name.

Pin spanners, hook spanners and face spanners in both fixed
and adjustable styles were a common part of tool manufactures
business before the advent of ‘fixed’ seals for rotating or sliding parts.
A few tool companies still catalogue and supply them for industrial
use where special packing is deemed better than seals for some purposes.

Thanks for the replies
It would seem (quite sensibly ) that not everything with a T in the part number is related to a Model T -Karl

Yeah... I can see the apprentice rapping on this wrench with a 5# lead hammer on a 2" diameter lathe chuck.
Our 14 X 120" American Pacemakers' used a 20 inch long wrench for the Brown and Sharpe keyed chuck mounting taper. ws

American Pacemaker is a great lathe.
I ran one off and on for over 40 years.
Everything on them is handy and nice operating.

Bob, I second the motion. I ran a 20 x 150 American Pacemaker for many years. A pleasure to operate for it's accuracy and all the controls in logical, convenient locations. Bob Hester

Now I feel stupid.. these were both 20" as well. DUH... was in a hurry last night. One machine had a 3 X 18 speed gear headstock with two joy sticks, and one had a compound dial that turned in tandem with about 48 spindle speeds, PLUS each had a back gear as well. Of course being at a utility, there wasnt a single tool that wasn't included with both. I especially like the spindle brake when pushing "up" on the run lever. ws

Check out Keith Fenner's 4 footer for his chuck on utube.
Gotta chain fall that chuck. Oh well, I cant lift mine either. Yes the AP is a pleasure.
