I'm looking for a period Nelson or "Nelson type" type ratchet wrench.This is the one used to adjust transmission bands. Would like it to be in good usable condition. Thanks for looking.
I don't know what a "Nelson type" is, but I have this one that I'm willing to send you for $10.00, which includes shipping.
If interested, please PM me with your name and shipping address and I will reply with payment instructions, thanks!
Please, no snipers ahead of Charles, thanks.
Charles, please contact me soon, I'm already getting PMs from other members!
Aaaand the flood gates have opened!
Thanks for the offer Mark, but I think I'll keep looking for a bit.

Charles has passed on the wrench, so it's going to Steve instead.
Steve, I sent payment instructions directly to your email address this morning, please reply to it with your full name and shipping address so that I can send you the wrench (plus a bonus item) today. Thanks!
I have more than 20 different ratcheting band-adjusting wrenches, several different styles and manufacturers and markings. But I have never heard of a "Nelson type" wrench. Maybe a picture of one would help.
Hello Mike."Nelson type" was a term that I came up with after seeing a (Nelson Ratchet Wrench for the Ford Transmission) offered on page 115 of the Model T Ford Owners Supply Book. The supply book being a current reprint of a 1920 Western Auto catalog. After doing more research I realized, as you had mentioned, that there were many makers of the band adjustment wrench that are nearly identical. If I was to rewrite the ad I would not use "Nelson Type" in the description.
Don't think you'll find one cheaper than Mark offered. That was a gift.
