   Dean collected mostly farm wrenches and related items but is moving and can't take his wrenches along. This is the last half of his collection, we sold the first half last Fall.

  Jim started collecting wrenches while still in his teens just missing being a charter member of the Missouri Valley Wrench club by one meeting.

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. I try to use the broad categories of condition: Poor, Fair, Good, Good+, Good++, Excellent, and Excellent, like new. I also try 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 has survived the years in almost unused condition is a rarity.

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.
* 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.
