Flea Market finds
« on: August 02, 2022, 06:55:03 PM »
I'm going to to try this here, I have figured out 2 out of 3!! The one I don't know is at the top; looks like VVF-JB Co. USA. In the middle is a Snap-on M-44 9/32 Speeder with female drive broach in top handle. At bottom is a Tru Fit 1/2" L Breaker Bar.

Does the Snap-On speeder handle swivel?  Or is it fixed to the shaft?  What would be the potentialuse of that female drive in either case?

Hello, Al. Yes, the top handle does swivel. That being said, I have no idea of use/function!! Maybe to put a T-handle on top for stability while turning? That top handle would be tough to hang onto by itself!!

Top one looks like an alignment wrench, usually came on a board with several specialty wrenches. Just a WAG

The top box end wrench, looks for all the world to be a special tool for tightening-loosing the rear wheel clamps on farm tractors.  Sized 7/8 to 1-1/4, and really tight.  Access is usually  poor due to the hub design, and wheel weights.   Manufacturers knew a farmer may not have a sturdy wrench, but would surely have cheater pipe handy.   The John Deere 2-cylinder tractors also took a similar wrench to tighten the flywheel clamps,  which were down behind the big external flywheels.

Top wrench could be made by Jo Manufacturing Company.  I have a wrench made by them that looks very close, and is marked "JOBE".  They also used markings joel, joex, jote, joar, jotite, jomite, joic, jotru, and jomi
"FORGED IN THE USA" myself.  Be good to your tools!
