Little Bonney wrenches
« on: October 27, 2019, 09:00:27 PM »
Picked up these two Bonney wrenches recently. One is an open end model 720 in 5/16 and 1/4, the other is an open end in 13/64 and 15/64.

How about a Bonney Zenel wrench in 3/16 and 7/32 ?
 
Only 2 3/8 long Bonney Zenel Made in USA and H10.

According to http://alloy-artifacts.org/bonney-forge-tool-p4.html#zenel -

" Zenel tools were given model numbers beginning with a "3" for quick identification, as these were sold at premium prices. The open-end wrenches were given a 3xxx series (3000 plus the industry-standard number), combination wrenches were the 31xx series, and tappet wrenches were in the 34xx series. (The miniature ignition wrenches were the exception; these were assigned models beginning with an "E" or "H".)
