Three D. M. Osborne wrenches
« on: November 30, 2011, 04:39:09 PM »
These three wrenches have been identified by others as "Osborne" wrenches. As far as I know, D. M. Osborne operated a business in Auburn, New York. The only comment I can make is that these wrenches are widely variant in style, and they were made by commercial manufacturers for Osborne. 

Does anyone have any other D.M. Osborne wrenches? I am looking for others.

 I have a couple since Osborne became part of IHC for a while. In my IHC collection I see a P167,K439, and P1189. Haven't inventoried my IHC wrenchs yet but plan to soon and will keep eye out for Osborne as I do. If I find duplicates might be willing to trade for wrenchs I don't have. Thats the reason for the inventory. Have done about 10-20 % of farm wrenchs and finding quite a few duplicates.
