Default Like Old Tools? Old Herbrand?

Then maybe you would like a gander at this stuff. Nothing crazy, but I had to collect the items and take a pic for another gentleman, so why not spread the joy for any vintage-tools folks out there, right?

Pretty neat Bull. What is that double box wrench that has a 1/2" drive in the middle and a 3/8" drive on each end used for?

I have a Herbrand flarer, just the screw press part, that you helped identify a while ago. If you or anyone else would like it let me know, I don't have a use for it.

Neat collection. Those long handle ratchets look cool. I have one herbrand tool, battery terminal release pliers.

Is the ratchet at the very top right a S-11?

Do you know what the 262 wrench is for? It looks like some sort of 7/16 and spanner? 3rd from the bottom on the left

That's the one that is so scarred and pitted, I can't find any numbers on it. The gear on it is good, as I recall, but I'd want to check. I think the paddles have some wear as well. I believe it was used by the Toxic Avenger on his trailer.

Whenever I see that design, I think of the early "ratcheting" wrenches. Not sure if that is what it is, though.

Oh, yes. In my last pic, it is the second one from the bottom, right above the 3/4 drive ratchet. That one is in very good condition; I thought you were asking about a different ratchet.

5th picture. 3rd wrench from the bottom. Maybe my description was way off.

Nice collection! I have some old Herbrand wrenches and sockets, and they've never failed me. I'll have to keep an eye out for some of those ratchets though...very nice!

Ooooh, nice collection. I really like the S-11 and the J-5(?).

Say, if you in a couple of months need to free up some money for your Blackhawk collection...

the wrench scott37300 asked about is an oil change wrench it has 7 different sizes.
that would fit most drain plugs at the time.

Have you considered making a post in the classifieds section here, with a few pics?
