When Scott said 'pig', it clicked, they are Hog Ring pliers, for the smaller Maspro type clips. Often used in upholstery, sometimes for fencing, etc.

Hello all
I bet we've all heard how some people have trouble finding Whitworth spanners.
No problem around here. A huge box full of spanners found at the markets. Sidchrome (old good ones), Ferguson, Ford, Austin, IHC, Amercian and English made spanners. Also a couple of odd spanners. Mostly WW with a few AF and even fewer metric.
Not long before this find (3 days) I found a small roll of spanners in a junk shop while I've been wondering around like Brown's cows. Some may say they're monogrammed. Some more may agree. Question is who's monogram?  ;D

Now the job of cleaning them up and chucking them in the big box of spanners already sitting in the shed. One day I'll sort them out into sets.

Anyone know what the odd looking bent spanners are for?

Cheers Scott

Hi Scott,

Don't know about the good old Sidchrome spanners, but you would be hard pressed to get better quality than the set of Royal Richards, as they were known in my youth.

I'm tipping the bent ones are for the fuel pipes and delivery valves on an early diesel. Just my guess.
Steve.

Bent ones are a type of "pipe" spanner of some sort.

Out with the electrolysis tank, nice chance to use your new dog wash tank

Scott, the odd bent ones are for the Grey Ferguson diesels, used on the injector pipe nuts and the fuel filter.

They are very, very sought after. Their current value is a little bit over the equivalent weight in gold.

So we don't make a sculpture out of them like Ian posted then?
It makes sense that there are 2 of them. There were 2 plowed depth spanners/ gauges. Possibly 2 Ferguson tractors?
Cheers Scott
PS: how much is gold worth now-a-days? I might have to sell them to pay for some projects that are on the go.

Perhaps the gold reference was a bit of an exaggeration, however, I did sell one on eBay for $140 a few years ago.

WOW Scotty, that will top up the super annuation fund!

Sounds like you did find GOLD in general Scotty. Not just the Whitworth stuff but the tractor spanners too. Well done.

Cheers. Thank for that Mr fan.
I did look at that site to find out about them after you mentioned the Fergy thingo.
I'll clean them up and see what size they are. Maybe, just maybe one is the size Ozyspanners is looking for. 
One I'll keep just because I want to. The neighbour has a diesel Fergy. I'll have to ask him if he has one of these spanners ;)

Cheers Scott
PS: No doggy dip yet Cobba. I need to make a frame for it before it can get bubbling.

Home made drill pres

Can't restore it as then it would look new so just going to give it a clean up
Anyhow just noticed a feature on it you can put the handle where ever you want it WHY ?
Also look how the wooden handle is fitted
