Thanks Pawpaw, HD was my first thought as well. I'm still looking, but so far no cigar. I have another thought, based on the absence of markings, and that is possible military contracted tool ? Still Looking. :smiley:

H D Smith made one similar in their Perfect Handle screwdrivers, I believe. Can't find mine, nor the photo .

Thanks for the reply. It does indeed resemble an air chisel bit, but the size and shape are off. It appears to me it was factory made, and not re-purposed or home made. My wags have been, A possible captive screwdriver shaft with missing linkage, and a Possible special purpose factory, or machine repair (Special Purpose) tool, with the bulge being a stop or a guide???Don't Know! PS: will try to take and post side view soon.

That is a cool looking screwdriver!! I wonder if it was made by a previous owner? The shank looks like a bit for an air chisel!! Just my 2 cents, Lou

Thanks

Yes, you have a problem.
You started out in need of one wrench to complete a set.  Now you probably need about 20 to complete these partials.
Let me know if you need some non-Auto Kit stuff.

Thanks to all who sold me or gave me wrenches!

I now have some complete sets and some leftovers.

Do I have a problem ? I guess I do !

Sometimes, you can find old style box springs with spring loops the right size to make your own clamps.  Useful to know if you're the cheap type.
