Powr-Kraft 1/2 Inch Drive Socket Set
« on: August 09, 2023, 05:53:28 PM »
I picked up this Montgomery Ward Powr-Kraft 30-piece 1/2 drive socket set recently.  Little used, it is in excellent shape.  It is missing the pull handle crossbar, 5/8 inch 12 point socket, and the 1/2 inch 8 point socket. I believe this is a mid-60's socket set made by Wright. I found an image of this set in the 1967 Montgomery Ward Christmas catalog.

That’s a nice set. I found mine at a 2018 estate sale in Lafayette, CA. After a bit of detective work it turned out that the original owner lived close to our Tahoe area summer home. Mine included some Barcalo supplied Powr-Kraft combo wrenches. I’ll check for your missing pieces in my spares but I won’t be where they are until mid October.

Thanks Don, 

I have a few Powr-Kraft tools, but I don't think they are quite as old. I've been watching the online auctions and estate sales for the PK branded Barcalo wrenches. I really like those ice cream scoop wrenches.
