Frank, I'm guessing that you go to volume 3 because you have already memorized the first two?

What was the intention or machine that made a Weber wrench a need?

  I like the old ones myself but never find ones like that.
The only bad tool is the one that couldn't finish the job.  Ironicly it may be the best tool for the next job.

 I assume this wrench was used on the Weber Tractor but do not have documentation to prove this.

i imagine it might be a challenge to find original documents of a pre war steam or early gas tractor that only a handful were ever made.

   But that is why I collect the odd crap myself.  To save a tiny bit of history even if the bigger bits are long turned into other stuff.
