Nice!So were there any big changes between 1933 and 1950?
It was interesting and cool to find this site and post. Thank you.So I have the Eifel Geared Plierench. It is the 8 1/2", dated 8 month, 1946. I have 3 jaws, which include the cutting jaw with clip. I also have the cloth case and everything is in excellent condition with little to no wear. I also have two (2) original brochure/manuals. It is very cool tool indeed. As I am getting older and trying to downsize a bit, I am debating selling mine. I know prices vary greatly. Given that this set is a complete with the manuals, any suggestion on a value or market? Anyone interested can post or also email me.Thank you,Fred
Wow, nice find Fred. Looks like it's held up fairly well to 98 years of use. As regards the wording, mine has some apostrophes and so looks like this: FLASHS'L'S CHICAGOHopefully Lyndon will be along soon and tell us what the "FLASHS'L'S" means.
So I am digging through stuff today and look what I found. Another Eifel Plyerench, but this one is much older. The Patent date is 5/2/26. 98 years ago. Also cast into the wrench is Flashsls, Chicago (Guessing manufacturer)? Note picture with white 'powder' was so my older eyes could read the casting in low light conditions indoors. I also took a photo of this older tool next to the 1946 era tool set I have.Any info appreciated. Anyone looking for an older one with the early patent date let me know. Delays prevented me doing the for sale forum thing yet, but both mine are going to new homes soon I hope.EDIT: Per Yadda's previous posts this is the "World Flight" set. I will look to see if I have other jaws to it. This one was not in a case and looks like my friend William used these much more than his newer set from 1946.Thanks Fred
Great information as usual. Now look what happened. I am falling back in love with my plyerench(s). Knowing all this history made them even more appealing.
Here is some pics of the ones I've got recently.
Good ones David! So what is an E-F Angle Driver? Is it the little one piece tool?
