Hi there, I have a few sets of snap on wrenches, but I'm not sure if they are what you're looking for. First of all, I feel like a moron, because "stubby boxend wrenches" leaves me confused--- story of my life!!! I'm not sure if that means a wrench with an enclosed socket on either end of the wrench, or wrench that has an enclosed "socket" on one end, and an open wrench on the other side. ... Yeah, you'd think that the amount of time I spend with wrenches would result in a general understanding of terminology, but, I guess is hasn't turned out that way!!!!
      I'm guessing you're familiar with the snap on insane letter and number system. 
     I have a number of snap on wrenches that I call "double ended box wrenches".... they vary from offset angles of 60 degrees and lower. The numbers are as follows:
xsom1619  (which, I don't think they make anymore.... but, this wrench is brand new),
XB wrenches:
3440a
2426
2022
1618

XS series:
2226
2024
1820
1618
1214
1012

I do have an oex set that's oex8- oex 58

and, I suppose the list goes on.  I don't know if any of the wrenches you wanted are on the list I just gave you.  Snap On wrenches are one of those things that you're proud to own, and are even happy to look at every day. But, the fact of the matter is that I'm not a mechanic, I'm a woodworker. I've collected these tools due to an addiction my dad and brother passed on to me.  (I always find someone to blame!!!!).
      Anyhow, I have a lot of other Snap on Wrenches. I have some old Blue Point wrenches, too. Well, I hope that you can find what you're looking for!  Anyhow, if you know a lot about Snap On history, I'd love to hear about it.
     But, let me know if you are interested in anything that I have or if I can help you find what you are looking for.
cheers, bird
