Bought one at an auction with a boat load of SO and Cornwell. Mine is a B-1458, 1/4 by 3/8. I have a customer who collects them and am plannning to buy brownie points by making it a gift. Mine is dated 1959 I believe. If you would like to sell or trade, PM me.

They are very cool with the round handle and feel great. I do wonder about strength with the round hanlde vs. flat. One of my friends is bent right at the end. Might be for low torgue applications.

Its a older one. Very sought after by some collectors.
The B-1458 is a brake wrench.

It appears that it is a 1963, 15 degree angle 1/2" x 9/16" "Boxocket" box end wrench. Produced with satin finish and polished ends according to my catalog.
