Title: Getting rid of junk farm wrenches
Post by: coolford on August 14, 2018, 02:19:30 PM
As I don't collect farm wrenches I just want to get rid of the ones I accumulate from auction box lots.  Especially those that are not marked or are too rusty for collectors.  In the past I have sold them for a quarter apiece and tried to think of a way to do better.  Here is my new method, I get $35 to $45 each for these and the wood is just scrap from my wood shop. At my age my time is not worth much.  What do you think??

That's a pretty neat idea. still getting some enjoyment out of them. way better than just setting in a box or scrap bin.

There is a chap in Australia that has used old rusty wrenches to create unique artworks.

I kinda like the "auto monkey wrench" grasshopper.
