Old Maytag Wrench?
« on: February 07, 2009, 09:12:09 AM »
Very interesting site.  O0

I was looking for some information on this maytag wrench.

Does anyone know what it was used for and how old it maybe?

Thanks,
 Miller

I am told it is a multi-purpose wrench for servicing the wringer-style washers with a gas engine. No idea how old, but probably 1908-1912.

I got the photo from one of the ebay auctions. :)
It's not a photo of my wrench, but mine looks just like it.

Going to watch the auction and see what they go for.
Believe it or not I found the thing out in the middle of the road on day a few years ago.

you could look in the "completed auction" area (need to be logged into eBay) ...

I don't have a ebay account yet. Do I have to give them a credit card number to join?
