Is there a scarcity of old wrenches in Australia?

If a scarcity exists, check out a possible root cause at this site.  (The sender and his wife are old friends of our's; he is antique tool collector who has shunted collectible wrenches to me from time to time).

You can not link to your mailbox, if it worked, we could all read all your email ;P
Just a weathered light rust/WD40 mix patina.

Try (http://www.outbackmag.com.au/stories/article-view?838 ) or  ( http://wheelnroundworkshop.blogspot.com.au/2013/10/the-spanner-man-john-piccoli.html ), or put "John Piccoli sculpture boort " as a search string in your favorite browser.  3,500 wrenches went into one of his creations.
