That was fast! Thanks for the quick reply.

I thought it was quite early after looking at some of the patent drawings and the Melbys site Johansson Museum Visit.

This wrench has been in my collection for about 7 months but I was instantly attached to it when I first spotted it. Let me think on that. I have to wonder how many of these are even in the States as most Bahco I see are late models.

A very early No 82 forging die number 1. The movable jaw has been marked on the "inside" so it's not visible when mounted. Has anyone seen a similar marking on a 82 or any other model?

Looks like early 82 alright though not particularly rare. I must admit I have not seen these markings, mainly because I haven't either dismantled a wrench nor purchased spare jaws. The size marking is usually on the side of the jaw, but not all have them. I would guess the markings moved from where it is on this wrench to be more visible on the jaw at some stage. I would check my collection and get back to you but it's in deep storage at the moment.

Apologies for my late reply.
Today I have dismantled one of my Bahco's 82.
There was no number on the inside of the movable jaw,
but there is one on the outside.


Regards,
Henri

Hello,
Have a look at this Bahco 57. So its a Generation 2 which is highly desirable and rare and its the biggest (30 inch) so it would have to be just about the most desirable collector wrench in Bahco ever. First one I've seen in >5 years of looking on Tradera. What did it sell for? Not nearly enough. Because the owner listed it as Swedish buyers only and refused to change the ad to allow international bidders despite numerous requests, he achieved probably half of its value in the auction. The lucky Swedish buyer got a true bargain. I have encountered this many times - the best source for Vintage Bahco is undoubtedly Tradera - a Swedish EBay - and many sellers in Sweden are reluctant to post overseas. :rolleyes:

Recently I bought this BAHCO #472 wrench in a local charity shop.
Chrome plated with a double-hex broached 5/8" hanging hole.

Has anyone seen one before?

Regards
Henri

Nice pickup, Henri!  The dual purpose hanging hole is really neat.
You might say I have a tool collecting problem....

A No. 71/72 double end adjustable. It looks similar to the one above with the jaw markings.

Today I bought via "Marktplaats" (owned by eBay) a 24" BAHCO No. 86.
Probably produced around 1950.
Used, but in nice working condition.
Paid € 40.- (ca. $ 47.-).

Regards
Henri
