One of my next questions was going to be which wrenches you got from your dad!

Is that an early 10B in the back?

Here is an 82 with similar markings showing the patent number:

That is labeled similar to mine except for lack of the 1x10 marking.  I just remembered reading on Bruce's Bahco site that the post 1924 wrenches were thinner in the head than the early ones.  The head on my No. 84 is 20.32 mm (.8 in.) thick.  Could you measure your Clyburn sometime for a comparison?

Thanks for the info in the prior post.  This is going to be very interesting!

Labelling variations in BAHCO
« Reply #22 on: December 12, 2012, 09:04:08 PM »
Just when you think you have got all the answers as to what labels appear on what models, an exception comes along..
Here is an early Series 4 (1954-1968) with the more modern style non-parallel sided shaft, produced alongside the more traditional parallel sided shaft models (eg 73). This is a model 973 which makes it Right Hand thread (the 9), a 15 deg head angle (the 7) and 12" ( the 3). All these were thought to have had rear markings of AB BAHCO STOCKHOLM or BAHCO SWEDEN,  but this one has the A/B BA HJORTH & CO STOCKHOLM which was only thought to be on Series 3. There appear to be "transition" models which help to date the artefact. This wrench may be one of the first production runs of the 9 series made around 1954.

Dad's wrenches
« Reply #23 on: December 12, 2012, 09:21:23 PM »
In response to the question by Volvadi, namely which wrenches did I obtain from my father, I have a picture below. My father by the way is 94. He was a marine engineer from Sweden who worked on merchant ships during his working life and he taught me how to fix things and work on cars. He lives in a home now.

Anyway, his BAHCO are in this picture. I have them marked in my collection file as coming from him. The 10" 72 is in particularly pristine condition. The more modern 10" 0672's have a thinner jaw have had more use and I guess he favoured those

Nice find!  Is this also a clue that the A-B wrenches are older than the A/B wrenches?

A/B and A-B
« Reply #25 on: December 12, 2012, 09:43:45 PM »
It "looks" like that may be the case: That A-B is older than A/B as you suggest. I've got A-B on my No 83 and my No 10 so the theory holds in those instances at least

Must have been typing (very slow thinker) when you posted the pictures of your dads wrenches.  That is such a great story of how you came to be a BAHCO fan.  That wrench collection of his would have to impress anyone... even a none believer!!

You should see the other stuff from him.... I've got a wall of old spanners, heaps of taps, dies, pullers, literally hundreds of sockets up to 1 inch shaft... A few really big spanners bought for marine engine work as well....
