I came across this wrench the other day. It is the first one like this I have seen.
I have to wonder why they would make an after market tool like this when there were millions of the ones made by Ford.

I have one also and have wondered the same thing myself.

Never seen one, but I guess it would work on lots of different engines, not just a T. Wiki says Sears started Craftsman in 1927 so they had a great pattern to start with, JD

With a good part of 15,000,000 T's on the road Sears sold parts like many others, guess they saw a market! :-) Remember Sears sold by mail so you replacement wrench was a letter and mail box away along with your other needed household needs.

It's got a chip in the open end...I wonder if it is covered by their forever guarantee

It may be pre-Sears. Sears bought the rights to the Craftsman brand. They didn't start anything.

I found that this wrench doesn't work well with the #4 spark plug because the dashboard gets in the way. -An extra deep socket wrench of the right size does the job perfectly. -I got mine at Harbor Freight.

I have one of those too. I guess that if you lost your Ford wrench, its replacement was available from Sears. (or pre-Sears) :-)

Stephen - As an "aside" here, I understand that if it is "approved", the Craftsman brand is about to be purchased from Sears by the Stanley-Black & Decker company. I guess it's no secret that Sears is "struggling" to survive and needs to sell something to continue struggling on for awhile yet. In the world of tools, it's the end of an "era"!

....actually, I guess the sale WAS approved and consumated earlier this year.

Sorry Herb,....didn't mean to de-rail the thread......

Actually they have already sold the brand that's why they are currently available in ACE/target etc.
