To be honest, I don’t even remember how this wrench came into my possession.
Don’t know if it was a yard sale find or if someone sent it to me.
All I know is that it has been kicking around for quite a while, all rusty and nasty, moving from one pile to another.
I finally tossed it into a bucket of EvapORust to let it soak and pulled it out a bit ago. I wiped it down and then ran it through the wire wheel several times, then got curious and tried to find something about it on Teh Google.
Big Goose Egg.
So I thought I’d throw it out there and see if any of you guys might have a clue. Military maybe?
These numbers are the only markings on the thing.
No fastener sizes or anything else. Looks to be 1/2 inch maybe.
Reader KJay knocked this one out of the park.
It literally took less than an hour to get this mystery solved.
Turns out this wrench is an Indian Motorcycle special service wrench from 1927 that could be purchased at an Indian Motorcycle Dealer to use for getting the cylinder head stud nuts off faster and easier.
Winner Winner Chicken Dinner, bigger than shit there it is.
