? ? ? WHAT IS IT TOOL ? ? ?
Located in Area B, Board 47, Item 114.
This tool is on display in Area H-2, Board 79, #9.
It is 20 1/2" long, with a 3 3/8" box opening.
There are no numbers or names listed on the tool.
Can anyone help?
Rudge nut wrench for removing wire or spoke wheels on early cars.
I have this very same tool, (TLC0079) Did not know what it was. We thought it was a fire Hydrant tool.
"M N & J", or might be "M N 8 J". Area B, Board 41, # 110. 12"
We have it listed as Railroad Special Tool. Not sure, hope you can help.
DRG - Denver Rio Grande RR - Approx 20" long --
openings 7/8, 1 1/2 --- 1 7/8, 2 7/8
Can you tell us what it was usd for.
I puzzle over the punctuation (periods) and letter order stamped on the tool. The railroad's name was: Denver and Rio Grande Railroad.
Why (D.R. & G.)? Perhaps the tool's letter stamping was done by a Spanish speaking employee??
Good to hear from you! Hope all is well!
Any railroader worth his salt knows that is a brake adjusting wrench.the three large openings fit the turnbuckle hexes and the small opening would help straighten bent bracing.hope this helps.
Tool # 12184-01 might be a ‘Montgomery Ward’ logo stamped on it.
