Buying, Selling, and Trading / Utica lock type crescent wrenches
« Last post by coolford on Today at 05:13:10 PM »
I plan to put these on E-bay next Sunday to start at $22.50 plus shipping of $7.30.  If someone wants them at that price you can PM me. The 12 inch is very good and the 6 inch good with some pitting.  Both work fine and the locks also work fine.  The 6 inch is somewhat common, but the 12 inch is rare.
Spark resistant and spark proof tools are used in explosion or flammable prone work.

   Thank you for the climbing hammer suggestions, do you think it might be a bit on the heavy side at 4.5lbs?

   I wonder if it's simply a stone masons hammer?

Hello, Yadda. You have a good friend, with a good eye!!! For your collection? Or is there yard work in your future? Regards, Lou
Nice old tool,I think you owe your buddy a nice cold beer.
I saw a pair similar to those a few years ago.  Can't remember for sure but it seems they were larger.  The condition was nowhere as good as yours, and the guy was asking $15 or so. 
Farm Implement Wrenches and Tools / Disston No. 5 Shearing Loppers

A coworker spotted these at a yard sale and picked them up for $2 and gave them to me. Disston No.5 Shearing Loppers.  18 inches.  Most of the original orange paint is still on the handles.  This is listed in the 1939 and 1945 catalogs as seen. The blade is still sharp enough to cut your finger if you run it along the edge.

I have been accused of collecting anything and that is true.  Even this junk new plane, at auction they had several, first choice was $5.00, second at $4.00 and then I bought this one for $3.00.  New in the box, China of course.

Clearly one of the Woodpecker's product prototypes, rejected because the handles were black.

They do look handmade. Someone needed a small set, I guess.
