Hi all, I have a very nice adjustable Model A wrench with a fair amount of original paint and very nice jaws. One of the best I’ve ever found. I’d like to trade it fore a Model T version in like condition.
They used that wrench on the 1927 models.
model 73 in 44-40? Bud.
I’m a retired mechanical engineer and have been working on vintage firearms for decades. It is indeed a ‘73, but in 38-40.
Looks like a ‘26-‘27 T wrench.
The brass carrage made it easy to spot.It's still here in the safe but i have given my grandads model 76 45/60 to my oldest grandson.Bud.
Getting back to the wrench, that style is late T and A, but the USA was added in 1931 and wrench was used on V8's also.
From an earlier post:
The USA on the adjustable wrench (and also the small Model A wrenches) was actually added on Nov, 25 1931. (see "A Guide to Tools for the Model A, second edition, by David Adair).
Thanks for the clarification Charles!
Let me rephrase my request- I’d like to trade it for a pre 1926 style.
