Ford Slip Joint Pliers - Can Anyone Date Them ?
« on: September 27, 2019, 01:32:37 PM »
Hi from the UK

Can anyone date this pair of Ford tool kit pliers, also what country are they from U.K., U.S.A., or elsewhere ?

I know that Ford used many different manufactures at different times and for different countries. I have had a look around on line but cant find any that match.

They are for the Model A because they have the screwdriver on the end of one handle.  The Model T ones did not have the screwdriver.

Real nice logo, there.
Most are not so clear.

My Ford pliers has a raised logo.  Yours appear to be stamped.

Nice catch on the stamped logo, Amecks.  I did not notice the wire cutter either.  I have been told that the stamped logo ones were used at dealerships or factories.  They did not come with the kits in the cars, in general.  There are some exceptions, like the hubcap wrenches, which are stamped.   I have seen all kinds of different tools and different brands (from the kit tools) in the stamped tools.

Quite a few years ago, I had a presentation folder from a Ford Board of Directors meeting from the 1920s.  It had all kinds of charts and graphs and data of production from the different factories.  What struck me was the number of factories that they had all over the country.  Some produced just parts and others complete vehicles.  I wish I had scanned some of it before I sold it on Ebay.

Great fantastic answers. So maybe from a dealership not from a tool kit then ?

I can only find 4 pair right now.  All have wire cutters, and all have screwdriver handles.
The ones by Circle MH (McKaig-Hatch?) are stamped on the left about halfway down.  Screwdriver is on the left.
The others by Oval P (who is that?) have a much larger logo and are stamped on the right near the joint.  Screwdriver is on the right.
There must be other variants, though.
What say you?
