3" adjustable
« on: April 04, 2015, 07:36:29 AM »
Got this 3" adjustable at the flea market this morning.

Forged, good fit and action.
Only marking is "Hong Kong".

There is a similar 3" one marked "TAIWAN" which also looks plausible as a user tool.

I have one of the Hong Kong ones but I wouldn't trust it to use.

The one I have is made of pot metal or something similar, wouldn't trust it either.

I bought a dozen of them on that auction site for giveaways.  The quality was quite good, surprisingly.  They had some kind of Chinese characters forged in the handle.

I also have a Hong Kong and a Japanese one marked "Boys Japan".

Wow, that's a bunch of wrenches. That #236 with the cut-outs looks pretty unique.

I have several of the 4", but only 2 of the little 3" wrenches. One is a Hong Kong, and the other says Germany.
VWs to D10s, I've fixed em.
