"STUBAI" made in Austria Wrench
« on: June 03, 2011, 06:32:19 AM »
This is my first "Austria" wrench find. I like the way they beefed up the open ends, and the really clean lines, and finish to it. Anyone have, or know anything about these wrenches, such as history, quality,etc.?

Thanks,

Wayne

I find them in car kits and perhaps motorcycle kits.

 I assume they are a contract house, but I dont know the details.

Heyco wrenches out of BMW car tool kits are dead ringers to that.  I see them here for sale, even have one or two somewhere.

Is there a link between the names?
The only bad tool is the one that couldn't finish the job.  Ironicly it may be the best tool for the next job.
