Walden flex head ratchet
« on: February 08, 2019, 02:36:29 PM »
I have lots of Walden ratchets, but had never seen a flex head Walden until this one showed up on e-bay.  Has anyone else seen or have a Walden flex head?

New to me as well. Maybe one of the W-W collectors will chime in.

It's possible that somebody attached a flex ratchet head to a Walden flex handle. The only way to know for sure would be to check out the Walden part number stamped on the handle. The 1/4" flex handle number is Walden 3117. The first picture is a postwar catalog page, the second is my early wartime set.

Don----It looks real, not something cobbled together, and it has a unique number 4052H which is different from any of the other Walden tools----Charles

I like that war time set, looks complete.  Your catalog looks like mine, the date on mine is 1954.---Charles
