Excellent find Eyeboltman!  Especially finding that SK branded wrench as well.  Double thumbs up!!

That offset P&C slotted driver almost looks similar to one of my USA made Craftsman offset slotted drivers. 

Except what you have is much cooler and probably better built as well.

Nice going and thank you for sharing.

I have a New Britian  NDF-80 with the 7/16 x 17/32 openings, and is as thin as a tappet wrench.  Is yours?  I'm not sure which manufacturer used fasteners needing the 17/32 size wrench back in the 50's or 60's.
I also have a Herbrand brake wrench but I'm not sure of the sizes, and I also a couple C'man wrenches that are 17/32.  I'll have to find them and get the stock numbers.

I did some re-thinking about these wrenches.  Your Husky and my New Britian are probably tappet wrenches.  I found 2 Craftsman 7/16 x 17/32 and they are both tappet wrenches, one marked V and the other 44471 -V-. 
I believe the Herbrand wrench is a brake wrench 9" long, #262, 5/16 x 3/8" and has the thickness of a standard wrench.

ADDED - tonight I found a Vlchek 90B 7/16 x 17/32 tappet lurking in the overflow drawer.

Ford used the 19/32 and 25/32 , I suppose the tappets could have used a 17/32? I'm pretty sure the Flathead V8
didn't have adjusters , you had to grind the vavle stem, but maybe the six or tractor engine?
Can't recall having a 17/32
Of all the things I've lost , I miss my mind the most.

My ford 8N and 9N tractors both used 7/16 for valve adjustment.
Started with nothing and still have most of it left.
