Reeves
« on: October 23, 2017, 10:32:40 AM »
Why do people take perfectly good wrenchs and purty them up. Bought this at auction to get the Reeves 3378. Turns out the second wrench from top is Wabash RR . Haven't really looked too closely at the others. Do I tear it up or take the Reeves off and put one of my junk wrenchs in its place. Iv'e got 7 US dollars invested so its imperative I don't diminish the value too much. :grin:

 Believe the large blue wrench to be Janesville Machine Co (A) wrench

As I have been told, and really have come to appreciate...... They are only old once. Think about it for a while.
I'm OK with being a tool snob.

 Jim, take it off of the board, that is the one you really wanted in the first place.

  if you put up a replacement, you will have to paint it red.
