Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2008: Blackhawk and Walden Worcester Socket Wrenches - Info needed
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Erik Whetstone on Monday, January 12, 2009 - 08:59 pm:

I've seen mention of these tools in a few threads, so I'm hoping someone on here is a little knowledgeable on these. I've got a 1927 Dyke's Encyclopedia that lists the Walden Worcester socket wrenches for use with Ford cars. I've picked up a few wrenches that aren't on the list and can't find anything on them. I've also got a Blackhawk wrench which I have yet to find any specific information on.
Does anyone know what the following Walden Worcester tools are for: 620, 755, 1222, 2522, 2525, 2619, 3240 and X1848
Iíve also got a Blackhawk 4219X, Iíve seen this tool in a photograph on Shorpyís site but canít find anything on what it was specifically for.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

An excellent tool site. Jack, I hope to see you again at Chickasha. Your tool knowledge is astounding!

Thanks for the information Jack. The 755 being for an Overland is right along the lines of what I was looking for. You mentioned the last four being part of a large set, do you happen to know if the set was for a specific model or if it was just a generic set?

Also, thanks for the link Don. I've actually spent quite a few days on the alloy-artifacts website already. I have found a few of the tools I have listed there, but didn't see these specific tools numbers.

I've also found a few advertisements for Blackhawk from '25, and one for Walden Worcester from '26. I'm hoping I'll come across a master catalog for them at some point.

Thanks again.

Those last four were from a generic set.

The Blackhawk 4219X is a 9/16" square for main bearings, and 9/16" hex for piston pin capscrew.

Amazing link- I learned about some of the strange old rusty tools in my basement. Iwas going to discrd them, but now I see them in a whole new light. I have learned so much on this Model T Forum, whether the subject is Model T or not.
