Georg,

I´d be seriously interested in two of those hammers, will you please let me know how it went?

Thanks, Dennis

I have just ordered the French Pattern Hammer #P1601-0200. Dimensions
are 200 gm, 3-1/4 head length, 3/4 face, and 11 in handle (I can cut it down to
8-1/4). It's certainly close enough."The Hammer Source" $17.99, German made:http://www.hammersource.com/Blacksmi...k_for_details/

Tool Kit Complete

I also just posted this info on my other link: http://www.alfabb.com/bb/forums/giul...ompletion.html and wanted to post it here with the title "Giulietta Tool Roll" so as to be easy to reference if you are looking for info on tool kits.
.........................
I just completed the last item for my tool kit. I was missing the drain plug Allen wrench combo and the hammer. I ended up making the Allen wrench and purchased the hammer from "The Hammer Source", The Hammer Source - Hundreds of hammers! . It's a 200 gram French Pattern Blacksmith hammer #P1601-0200. I had to shorten the handle a little to 8-1/4 overall.

Wrenches and pliers are original NOS. The tool wallet I had made new from an old original as a pattern (Bill Gillham provided the original and got 2 of the repros). Screwdriver is from Garrett Wade, Garrett Wade Woodworking Tools & Supplies, Shop Tools, Hand Tools, Measuring Tools, Knives & Drills... . A complete set is #13G07.01 use what you need for the kit and use the rest in your tool chest. Nice quality! I also have a new Lodge spark plug that goes in the snapped cover.

Cheers,

George

That's a really nice looking kit. Have you got any pictures of the fabrication of the drain plug wrench?

Here is a drawing to show what my dimensions are. I did not have an actual tool to use as a template. I scaled one from photos and other tools in the same kit photo. Drill a large hole through the bar stock so you can form a good pool in the hex stubs before welding into the bar stock -- the hex wrench material is much harder. I cut the hex wrench stubs from hex-wrenches with a cut-off wheel.

George,

What about the tool for hubcup removal? Can´t see it anywhere in your tool kit. Unfortunately don´t have any pic of it to attach either.

Dennis

Lever, hub caps tool

I am still trying to find a hub cap Lever tool. I am willing to buy one or make one but need someone that has an original to draw a template with measurements. Does someone out there have this tool and could make such a template?

Please...

George

George,

This may be enough info to make one. I couldn't think of a way to determine the size of the large radii that link from the .48 width to the .65 end radius. If needed I can mail you a tracing.

What was the original finish on the drain plug wrench? George's looks like hammer finish paint, but what was the original? Paint? Galvanized?

Thanks Doug. That was perfect. Terry, good question, I am going to zinc plate my drain plug wrench. I painted it temporarily. Does anyone know what the original finish was on these tools?

George

Tool finish

George,
Both of my drain plug wrenches are a silver cad finish. The wrench should have the allen sizes stamped in the backside of the wrench just below the allen. I'll post a picture later tonight.
