Photo Yard Sale Find

I always look through the old tools hoping to find something like these. The top one I think is an Economy or Hercules wrench for the ignitor. I Think I was the most excited about finding that one. The second one is an IHC wrench 1326-E. Maybe someone can tell me what it came with? The third is a Ford script wrench 4 1/4" long with an M on the other side. The best part was I got all these, a little chisel and a 5" square box full of square nuts and bolts.....for a buck. I couldnt beleive it. I Just wanted to share this exciting stuff.

Thanks
Frank Y

I believe your Ford wrench is a model T transmission wrench. Jim Hunter

Your right you never know what you'll find.

I was at a farm auction yesterday in PA. The auctioneer was trying hard to sell an old rusty tool box and nobody bid. I finally put up my hand and got it for a dollar.

I contained a good socket wrench and some sockets, as well as aome old rusty open end wrenches. When I got it home I dumped it out and found a
Planet Jr. wrench.

This created a new problem, I'll have to find a Planet Jr. to be able to use the wrench.
