Western Auto Chrome X Quality sockets 1936-1939
« on: March 18, 2023, 06:24:59 PM »
Kind of a narrow focus, but if anyone is building a 1/2 drive set of Chrome X Quality sockets I have a few for sale. From what I could find these were the "top of the line" tools sold through Western Auto and were made by Duro/Industro between 1936 and 1939. In this set is a 7/16, 9/16, 5/8, 21/32, and a 4 inch extension. These have been used with the typical signs of normal use, nicks and light scratches, some finish loss through wear, no cracks or damage. All they say is "Chrome X Quality" and a quick search at Alloy Artifacts had the answer, only a three year run it seems. In 1940 they switched the name of their top tier tools to the Wizard name. $5 for all 5 pieces plus whatever a priority small flat rate box will cost from Southern Oregon to where you are.
Rogue River, OR.
