Need help identifying orphans
« on: December 12, 2015, 03:15:48 PM »
Hi All - I need help identifying some orphan wrenches - or a least, wrenches unknown by me.  I would appreciate it if some of you wrench sleuths would have a look at the three pics. posted here and see if you have any ideas what these wrenches might be.

The first is a wrench marked C.C. Mfg. Co.  I was really pleased to come across this recently in a flea market!  I know about the CC Plow Co., but I think this must be a different company.  It has the appearance of a farm wrench, but who knows?!

Next is a nice, big wrench marked BP 19.  No idea what it is, but I like it.

Then there is a very rough plow-type wrench marked 141.

Any ideas????

THANKS!

re; C.C.Mfg.Co.      there was a company named "Cayuga Chief Mfg. Co.  out of Auroa, N.Y.

the only wrench shown had CAYUGA  on it.

found nothing on the 141 nor the BP 19

Can't tell from the photo, but could 141 be used to pry open the pitman arm on a farm mowing machine to remove the sickle blade?  Only problem is that the wrench seems a little short for that....
The ORIGINAL Northwoods.

I have one of the BP19's also. Orphan to the best of my knowledge, but my money says it will show up on a bale press parts list someday. Top wrench is a nice one too.

Thanks to all of you for your input. Hopefully, as mentioned, more info. might someday crop up!

Turnnut, you may be right about the Cayuga Chief connection - hadn't thought about that.  It's worth keeping in the back of my mind!

I'll be posting more orphans in the future.
