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.
I can help with a few:755 is an Overland socket wrench,1222 is a "T" handle 11/16 rim wrench, 2522 is 11/16 off set ,2525 is 25/32 offset and 2619 is a 19/32sst wrench. These last four are part of a lage set that was offered.
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.
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.
Many Thanks Jim
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.
