The pages are in protective sheets in a three ring binder. As it has been over ten years since Wayne Dill's last John Deere tool list Dan's wrench numbers will be used for reference in future Wrenching News Wrench Auctions. The list will be updated whenever they are enough new entries to warrant a new edition. The current 2017 edition is $23.00 postpaid.
