1926 Blackhawk Catalog
« on: November 02, 2015, 05:37:51 AM »
Wanted to pop in and share this link.  I was able to get the Henry Ford Museum to scan this catalog for me.  Excellent content:  https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B2SPFEeFsHQHbFJZamFFOXJBM00/view?usp=sharing

In another week or so, I should have the 1923 Blackhawk Tools edition by American Grinder from the Wisconsin Historical Society.  I'll post that when it arrives.  Enjoy!

very much appreciated Twertsy.

a lot of their tools follow the lines of Walden & Mossberg's.

if you noticed the aftermarket Ford items, many companies made aftermarket parts for the Ford Model T's as
Henry did not put the best into his cars. he wanted to keep the cost down to sell them cheaper.

Not much different today I suspect.  The aftermarket parts industry is huge!

This is great! I have a Blackhawk 4928 wrench that I haven't been able to identify for nearly ten years and I found it in this catalog. It is for 1923 and earlier Chevys.
