 The reason I was asking the sizes of the convex Barcalo set is because you show 6 pieces and I have 8 different sizes in my collection, with several duplicats in most of the sizes. Following are the sizes I have.  1x15/16, 7/8x25/32, 3/4x5/8, 11/66x19/32, 5/8x9/16, 9/16x1/2, 7/16x3/8, and 13/32x5/16.
 If you want to let me know which ones you don't have I'll look and see if I have any spares in those sizes and If I do your welcome to them for the cost of shipping. I am up in Canada so so it will cost a little more than it would to ship from one of the states. It would be a damn shame to have to rework or make a new display board but you do such a nise job I'm sure you could handle it. I would like to display mine in a similar fashion so if you don't mind I'll probably try to pick your brain a bit as to how you got that Barcalo decal. It really looks good. Let me know, Jim.

Thanks to Skip I had to make a new display board for the additional wrench in the Hinsdale collection.  I'm not complaining by any means!  Also, I may offer offer the 5 wrench display on the classifieds here if there's any interest.  Anybody have the #1-#5 set they want to display?

For some reason I could not send the pics on a pm so I'll try it here
 One pic shows my set which has 9 different sizes ( not 8 like I had said ) and the other picture shows the 2 that I could send you, unfortunately I don"t have a spare 5/8x9/16.The two I can send are the 1x15/16 and a 1/2x 7/16.
 It looks to me that I might be missing one size probably a 3/8x5/16.This is just a quess by looking at the lengths that get progesivly shorter as the sizes decrease

I see I need to start using spell check in my posts.
If anybody has a Barcalo convex pattern 3/8x5/16 wrench I'd sure be interested in a purchase or a trade.

A couple more displays done! Let me preface that these are not wrenches but I'm posting them here anyway.  The first is a late 50's True Temper Rocket A-16 hammer that is in pretty decent shape considering it's been used regularly. The second is a set of Stanley chisels my dad bought me at Coast to Coast hardware store in 1984 when I was in 7th grade.  The chisels are not exactly antique tools but they hold sentimental meaning for me.

Do you mind if I steal your design for my Plomb display?

I don’t mind at all. In fact I’m working on a Plomb pebble combo set now. I still need a number of bigger wrenches to finish out the set. Then I can make the display.

You wouldn't happen to have an extra 3/8 pebble combo would you?

What size large combos are you missing?

I spotted a little Plomb combo in the bottom of a box of C-man OE's.  Drat!  It was another 7/16. 
The search goes on.
The ORIGINAL Northwoods.

I found a 3/8" combo almost immediately on ebay for fairly cheap.  I think it was $12 shipped and it's in decent shape.
