Default WTB: Thorsen MFD USA Combo Wrenches

I'm looking for some Thorsen wrenches:
Thorsen 12-Point Combo MFD USA

Must be from the series which is stamped "MFD USA" on them like this:


I bought 3 standard sizes of these:

2018 - 9/16" bought from OldnSlo
2030 - 15/16" bought from Grabit
2032 - 1" bought from zuk123

Also need 3 metric wrenches (not the short or stubby kind)

1015 - 15mm
1016 - 16mm
1017 - 17mm

Post here or send me a PM if you have any of these for sale. Also interested in Giller MFD USA too. They look the same only they say Giller in place of Thorsen.

I've got your 2018 in fine shape. Do you need metric, in either short or std pattern? PM please if that is on your list.

Sent you a PM. Thanks man. The 15/16 and 1 inch sizes seem to be rarer to find but I know they're out there somewhere. Send me a pic of your metrics too - I might be interested in them.

Hi, I've got the 2038 but it might be considered poor shape. the chrome is chipping off on the open end and the box. Pity as the wrench really doesn't show much wear at all, apart from the chipping/peeling.

If you are interested, I could send a photo.

2038...that would be 1-3/16 size I'm guessing? That's a pretty weirdo size that I've never needed a combo wrench for in my entire life. I was hoping to go up to 1 inch for this set of wrenches but sure if you feel like it post a photo of it or send me a photo. I might just decide I'm interested in it

Sorry, late night, I have the 2032 you were looking for, the 1" size, not the 2038.

I'm actually surprised at the peeling chrome. I thought they were better than that.

I'll attach some pics. The color variation is more like the overall pic. The closeups make it look darker than it is. The handle of the wrench shows almost no wear at all.

Don't know if you'd be interested but I have a 2030 and a 2032. But they are marked Giller. Its a Thorsen tool made for military use. Even marked 2030 and 2032. Also have an actual thorsen 2036 1 1/8. Not on your list but figured I'd through it out.

Chipping chrome seems to be common on the Thorsen, most the Thorsen I have, Have a little bit of chipped Chrome, The Giller all seem pretty good though

I edited that in after I bought his long metrics. I originally wasn't gonna buy metric but I figured what the hell. The equipment I work on is all mostly standard, but sadly I am now encountering machines which have parts that are put together with half metric and half with standard.

Still looking to complete these sets. Some great finds so far and I appreciate the effort from the people who posted here. Those Gillers are a great wrench and thanks to Grabit for his findings. I decided to try collect a set of the Giller MFD USA too.
