MULTI-SPANNER Wrench
« on: May 27, 2011, 09:45:59 PM »
This wrench has 2 adjustable ends, one larger than the other. It has graduated marks in inches, and mm. The only other mark is "Multi-Spanner". Does anyone recognize it, and possibly the maker of it?

Thanks,

Wayne

there were quite  a few threads about this on the old site (Getting old fast isnt it )
 i think it was determined it was swiss made or something.

Yes it is getting old fast, and I can't remember what happend last week, let alone 2 months ago. I think it is called half-eimers disease. Anyway, I don't remember this one being posted, and I did not post it, so here it is again I guess. It did come from England, so the swiss theory would make sense. What was the company name, if anyone knows?

Thanks,

Wayne

That is a nice wrench… I do believe that it is Swiss made...

I imagine that there will be quits a few old posts revisited here on the new forum since the archives from old forum were lost.
If all else fails use a bigger hammer…

Thanks Guys. I will explore the Sweedish possibility. Also, I know their will be some past posts revisited, but I see nothing wrong with that. And, I think it is a good thing to replenish our lost data base. The old forum was my only record keeping system, and I probably had a thousand new tool find pictures lost, out of my 1500 posts. It's a good thing I never sell a tool, and might revisit some of them as well!

Eskilstuna is the brand I had and had posted about.
"The city grew enormously during the Industrial Revolution and became one of the most important industrial cities of Sweden, earning the nickname "Stålstaden" ("The City of Steel"). Aside from firearms, the city also produced cutlery, scissors, keys, machine tools and precision instruments. As a tribute to the steel industry, the figure of a steel worker is included in the city's coat of arms. Eskilstuna is sometimes called The Sheffield of Sweden, Sheffield being a (much larger) industrial city famous for the quality (and quantity) of the steel produced there. Both cities at their peak were home to numerous different companies involved in steel production."
Many tools were produced there, and many more using steel from there.
The wrench design has been reproduced by a bunch of makers.
