Wrench Display
« on: January 23, 2012, 12:10:23 AM »

A wrench display from a hardware store, circa 1910.
Wish I lived in this town.....

Just a weathered light rust/WD40 mix patina.

Bullards have been found in Sizes 0, 1, 2, 3 & 4.  The No. 4 is a 4 lb.13 oz. brute. I have yet to find a 3.  Anybody got one?

Does anyone know what the pegs in the cabinet look like and how they are attached?

There is a No. 3 in the upcoming Wrench Auction in York, Nebraska. It's Lot No. 762.

There is also a small No. 0 (Lot 680)

Cabinet pegs in the picture almost look like all-thread with acorn nuts to cover the ends of the all-thread.

Agreed. In the center of the top pic is an empty peg, you can see what looks like a fender washer against the board......

Could plausably be say 4" studs threaded at the ends I suppose also....

Whatever they are, there is some weight on some of them :P
