What a useful wrench

Post by NealW » Sun Jul 07, 2019 6:23 pm

I would imagine/hope that every T driver has this wrench in their tool kit in the car. I knew that it was for the spark plugs and nuts for my demountable wheels, but since I've been restoring my 15 runabout I've come to realize how useful it is for other areas of the car. I even used it today to remove the gascolator from the bottom of my gas tank after removing it from the frame. What a useful wrench. Looks good too! Thankfully I've got an extra one that I keep in my toolbox for ready access.

Dennis, don't believe all you find on the internet. That tool clearly precedes the widespread introduction of metric fasteners. The end they indicate is for metric use is actually for whitworth use. The best examples cater for whitworth and BSW.

Don't ever buy one of these, for some reason it stripped everything it was tried on. :o :D

Experience is a wonderful thing. It enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again.

Neal, your #2335 wrench is the later version (1921-1927).

What you want for your 1915 is one of these (1913-1920). As you can see, they vary slightly in shape depending on what company supplied them.
The inevitable often happens.
