Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2014: Question About T Tools

Yesterday at the Englishtown Swap Meet I picked up 2 Ford adjustable wrenches. One plain and one with the square tang on the end. They appear to have a very old coating of paint on them and I was wondering if the tools originally came with some kind of finish on them. I doubt it was very durable if they did because the standard "look" is a light coat of rust.

Charlie,

The 'square tang' wrench is a model A wrench. It is my understanding that most Ford wrench kit tools were unfinished. However, I've heard that some were painted black.

The square end on the monkey wrench was used in 1927.

The square tang came out in 26 and carried through to the model A.The diffy plug had been changed by then. They had a black oxide coating.

The 27 to late 28 or early 29 Model A's used a slotted plug then went back to the square.

The reason I asked was the tools have that black wash like coating I've seen on some T engines. It doesn't seem to come off at all. I was wondering also are there any examples of "new" tools or has any one seen these wrenches in an unused condition?
