Almost there!!!
« on: July 06, 2020, 11:17:22 AM »
Hello, Many thanks to Al aka. amecks for a generous donation of 2 of the  3 missing wrenches from this Barcalo set. The 2 at top are the new additions, 7/16 x 1/2, and a 3/4X 7/8. Regards, Lou

That's a nice set of wrenches. I have a couple of Barcalo set but I have not seen that particular version before. Any idea what year those were offered?

I believe that style of DOE wrenches was offered from the early ‘50s until around 1960. Although I don’t have that exact DOE roll, I have a similar roll for combos and a smaller roll for DOE wrenches. Here are some of my Barcalo rolls.

Hi Lou,
Unfortunately I missed this thread until recently or I might have been able to help with the missing wrenches. It’s nice that Al was able to provide the wrenches to complete the set.

Thanks guys. That's some nice stuff you got there Don. I'm drooling all over my laptop. That's the first wooden board like that I've ever seen. It has a very high cool factor on my chart. Jim

The wrenches I gave Lou were purchased for me by my mom with stamps from a catalog (I think it was S&H Green Stamps).  It was when we lived in Florida so that period ended in 1960 - placing those wrenches in the timeline just where Don said.  I wanted them to use on my bicycle.

Could have been the old S&H (Sperry & Hutchinson) or the other one we had around us, the yellow Top Value stamps.   Both were given out by various stores in quantities depending on what you bought.   I can remember sticking many of those into the books for my mom (I'm weird, i like licking stamps   :tongue:  There's one in every crowd). :grin:

The best ones were the stamps which were for one page (instead of a whole page of small stamps).

Yup, Top Value yellow stamps.  Might have been those as well.  My mom also bought with stamps a tool box for me.  Still have it, but I had cut the tray handle off because it was always in the way.
