I received another Walworth ad from 1945 to go with my ad posted up thread and my '42 catalog. I also picked up an 8" and 6" wrench, both dated 1942.

I found a 1937 Walworth Walco ad on the internet recently. The earlier Walco wrenches obviously didn't have the replaceable lower jaw.

I’m adding to this older but very useful thread for any possible newer GMTK collectors. I can’t seem to pass on these wartime Walco wrenches when I find them at a bargain on eBay.

Don there must be something about these Walco wrenches - :lol: - These ones followed me home too.

They turn up here in the U.K. - these are my auto jumble finds.

Len,
Those are nice looking. It's good to see that Walco wartime wrenches are turning up in the U.K. That adds to the likelihood that they were supplied in GMTKs. Here is my collection ranging from 6" to 24".
