CRESCENT WRENCH PARTS ASSORTMENT BOX
« on: November 07, 2011, 05:33:03 PM »
I found this at an estate sale last weekend.It's an assortment box from Crescent Tools of Jamestown,N.Y. Only 2 compartments had any jaws.No other parts were in there,just odds and ends.I thought it was pretty cool.

Into the 80s every distributor of cresent wrenches had one in the store to serve customer needs.  Hardware stores often had a similar box with a less deep stock. 
In many cases the part was free, and that system generated a lot of customer loyalty.

I think they come up on eBay once and a while. I have seen 3 or 4 on there over the years.

Any chance you would be willing to sell me one of those jaws? I have a double ended crescent that is missing one jaw, not sure which one I'll have to check when I get home

Oh shoot yeah that's cool! I've been trying to "make" a box of repair parts for myself, after finding out what the local hardware store is charging for those parts!!!
Anytime I find a Crescent wrench I grab it- even if the handle is bent, it's broke or rusty. I disassemble it for the parts and sort it out into my stash box. Next time I find a NOS missing a part, I can fix it.
