  • If you have any interest in Deere Company wrenches I highly recommend you acquire a copy of Dan Chopiak's "John Deere and Merged Companies Wrenches and Tools". - Over 600 wrenches are pictured and described in this sixty-nine page list. The pages are in protective sheets in a three ring binder. As it as 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 $20.00 postpaid. Contact: Dan Chopiak's - 1664 King Hill Road - Endicott, NY - 13760 - 607-862-4778 - email:dchopiak@yahoo.com"

    If International Harvester wrenches (or tool boxes, seats, oil cans, etc.) are your thing then you need a copy of "IHC Tools and Equipment That They Were Issued With" and "IHC Tool List" which is updated every year. These lists were originated by Gill Irps and are now updated by Glenn Lofdahl: 2313 V Road - Strong City, Kansas - Phone: 620-340-3896. email: glennlofdahl@yahoo.com
