A word on condition: Because of the character of their use and storage wrench condition can hardly be judged to the same standards as other tools. So rather than using a grading scale I have tried to note all faults such as missing parts, cracks, pitting, over cleaning, repairs, etc. Likewise the wrenches in this auction that are in exceptional fine or excellent condition have been so noted, even a common wrench that as survived the years in almost unused condition is a rarity. This leaves the wrenches listed with no mention of condition which covers all those that are in good to good plus collectible condition and with no major flaws.

Other info:
* Measurements are usually rounded off to the nearest 1/4".
* The markings on the wrenches are in all capital letters.
* a / separates markings on one side of the wrench from the other side.
* If a wrench is misnumbered in a photo the description number will prevail.
* All farm type wrenches are cast malleable iron unless noted otherwise.
* To search for a particular wrench or company (for example IHC, Deere, Coes, adjust etc,) use the find on this page in the edit menu. I have tried to list the company or companies associated with each wrench.
