Westcott #74

Here is my little 4" Westcott #74. It is a little beat up and stiff, but still just as snazzy as it can be!

It's a curved adjustable day, heh?  Nice group of wrenches!

That little booger is the reason why I dig thru every box at a flea market or estate sale.

Also just happened to stumble on to this. Keystone's building? Could this be the actual location where they made the wrenches?

I'll have to drive by there tomorrow and see if it's still these. That road is known for a few things. The main one is fires. Buildings over there seem to burn down in the middle of the night for no apparent reason.  That area is known for heavy industry and very polluted ground. A lot of Buffalo history happened on Chandler Street.

Judging by the ad copy it is at least one of their buildings.
