Cee Tee slip joint pliers

Post by prestoncohunter » Sat Mar 10, 2018 11:02 am

Are these Cee Tee pliers correct for WW2?

It seems like yesterday when Cee Tee Co pliers were pooh-poohed even for a motorpool toolkit!
It is a good thing that now they have the acceptance they deserve!

Luca, and I may be one of those guys :oops: In my area flea market, actually tomorrow, I can guarantee that I will see no less than 4 sets of CeeTee's. The production numbers must have been astounding when compared to the competition. I will go through 2 dozen CeeTee's before I ever see another wartime set from another company.

As an example, I'll pick up any and all slip joints that I find tomorrow and report back. :wink:

CEE TEE CO grow on trees around here, too. And if I wanted a crate full of pipe wrenches, wartime 6- and 14-inch RIDGID are in the same orchard, apparently. I now put all three in the same category as the Indestro Select Steel 723: left behind.

Not to be that guy with the partypooping facts, but it bears noting that the earliest factory document Fred or I could find that references CEE TEE CO (vis-a-vis the #H-26 model number) for the Willys A-374 pliers is May 1943, so they're not appropriate for early war MBs.

Proper 6" pipe wrenches are slightly more common then hens' teeth out here in any brand or style. They definitely don't fall in the "left behind bin"!

I didn't know you needed one. I stopped picking them up when the demand stopped and I noticed I had a little pile. You need one?

So...as per Greg's research, from May '43 onward an MB might have CTs.
I would not suggest that they are appropriate for a GPW factory kit though....unless I see something from Tom W. indicating otherwise.

I have a couple, so I'm not in need. Just commenting in case someone is looking at availability by region. Small pipe wrenches don't come up much out here.
