Don, apparently your set is a bit different from my set.
Interesting!
For the record, my set is not for sale.

Regards
Henri

Henri,
That is a beautiful wartime group of Barcalo Buffalo wrenches that would be perfect for an onboard Jeep toolset. The set I’m trying to complete is a little different with the sizes marked on the raised panels. The lower picture are the wrenches like yours from my Jeep’s toolset.

Don, nice picture of a part of your Jeep's toolset.
Forty years ago I owned a Ford GPW 1944, that I later sold again.
However, the toolset I collected with it, remained in my possession.
It was the start of my tool collection.

Regards
Henri

I have a picture Of a Barcalon collection of wrenches and see if this is the style your looking for and I’ll have the owner look for your particular size. Email me personally because I’m getting an error on site because of the max size of picture.
Thanks

I think the max size is 800kb for one picture and if i have several i usually size them to 250kb with Irfanview.

I am all Apple devices so irfanview is not an option for me. I’ll figure out something because I am helping a buddy sell of his massive tool collection on Garage Journal. I have 250 tool board pics posted and still have 100 to go. Then I start on individual tools and sets where ever I get the best interest.
Thanks
Dave

There are programs for Apple-


Software similar to Irfanview for Mac- https://irfanview.en.softonic.com/mac/alternatives (https://irfanview.en.softonic.com/mac/alternatives)

FarmBoy,

If you want to use the software that is already on your Mac, Preview will allow you to "Adjust Size" on any single photo you're viewing or to save it in a different format (e.g., JPEG).  "sips", a command line tool, will allow you to do them in batches:  https://robservatory.com/use-sips-to-quickly-easily-and-freely-convert-image-files/
