I went to the Kapunda swap meet today and bought a most unusual adjustable wrench. Perhaps our English friends can shed a light for me.

The hollow in the handle bears the following in raised characters;
"T 1387 SMITHS O'SALTLEY BHAM" I have never heard of this manufacturer.

The FORD script is at the head of the wrench and is stamped into the metal.

I had to phone my wife to get her to look up the part number to confirm it was indeed a T1387 Adjustable wrench.

Most of our Canadian sourced tools are stamped Made in Canada. Others come from various US manufacturers. This is the only English one I have seen, if indeed BHAM is short for Birmingham.

ALLEN Is that the long lost metric adjustable wrench?

I have 3-4 English ones but can't find any that are metric.

It is good that my T has English nuts and bolts.

Allan,

Sounds like it was made by a company in BirminghamEngland

Fred, I suspect this one is for left handed use. The printing on the handle is on the opposite side to all my other wrenches. How do you tell which ones are metric?
