These wrenches are all in pretty clean condition for their age.

That's a sweet old set.
I didn't`t realize Husky was that old?

Does the need justify the want ? Or does the want suffice?

Seriously, they go way back, 1930's or 1940's anyway.
You boys better hold on cause i'm gonna have to stand on it!

NEED A 1/2" BONNEY STREAMLINE COMBINATION AND ANY OVER 13/16" TOO!

Ive posted these both before,


The top husky i picked up today. It is awesome. There was a sliderbar, exensions, and most of a socket set there, but i was out of money  :'(. No box i could find.   I have a later cs43 as well, both are great and smooth as can be.




And i picked this up along the way.

That's a sharp little wrench. Looks like manufacturer swag from a trade show.

I found this Husky H-8535A 1 1/16" X 1 1/8" box end wrench to replace the New Britain one in my Husky tool set.

Here's a nifty little set. It's identified as Husky Set #999, circa the 1920s. I'd love to own this!

I'm one step closer to completing my Husky open end wrench roll! I just bought an H-1033-C 1" X 15/16" wrench. I temporarily added a New Britain NDF-30 as a placeholder until I could find the Husky. Now all I need is the little Husky 5/16" X 1/4" to replace the NB NDF-10 and it'll be complete!
