Walworth Stillson Pattern Pipe Wrench
« on: October 25, 2018, 08:18:24 PM »
I found this little Walworth pipe wrench in a grab bag at an estate sale.  More than a handful of the 20 items in the bag worth the $5 each.  I didn't even realize this was in the bag until I got home. Unfortunately, it is missing the adjustment nut.  On the handle under the 6 is 43 and O.  Does this mean it was made in October 1943? 

Also, any ideas on where I might find a replacement for the nut?  Doesn't necessarily have to be original.
You might say I have a tool collecting problem....

I just posted a Walworth 10" wrench on ebay.  It is stamped N.Y. N.H. & H. - New York New Hampshire & Hartford (Railroad).  The handle is marked 42H and the jaw is marked 42J.
If someone on this forum wants any of my tools on ebay just say so.  I can sell them for less directly.  This one is an auction but no one has bid yet so it is available.

Tough to see since it is all piled up in bad shape in the shop and in the house.

Yadda, give me some measurements, inside and outside diameter. I have a few smaller sized nuts like that.

Yes, it was made in 1943. The date is usually marked on the hook as well.

Hi Dan,

As best I can tell.

ID= 1/4
OD = 5/8
Height = 5/16
