The Spring Wrenching News Antique Wrench Auction will be held after the Missouri Valley Wrench Club Spring Meet in York, Nebraska. Majority of the auction consists of the wrenches and other tools from the Hilary Kline Estate. If there was a wench collecting Hall of Fame, Hilary would undoubtedly be a member. He was a charter member (and last surviving charter member) of the Missouri Valley Wrench Club and served as the club president for several years. He was a devoted and enthusiastic collector of the rarest and most unusual vintage wrenches. Beside collecting wrenches he was well-known for his remarkable hand crafted miniature wenches he made every year for a limited number of subscribers. His family kept Hilary's personal collection of these miniature wrenches but another Missouri Valley Wrench Club member has consigned a few for this auction. Hilary had more "one of a kind" and extremely rare wrenches than any other collection we have had to auction. Even his less rarer wrenches included many in unusual sizes, variations or exceptional condition. Hilary mainly focused on adjustable wenches but also had a large collection of farm wenches plus side collections of oil cans, early screwdrivers, hammers, woodworking tools and other primitive antiques which are listed in this catalog.

Jim Plantikow of Omaha, Nebraska started collecting wrenches while still in his teens just missing being a charter member of the Missouri Valley Wrench Club by one meeting. This is the third of several auctions we will have to thin down his massive collection. Jim is selective in the items he collected, concentrating on the rarest and unique adjustable and farm wrenches and fencing tools, etc. His adjustable buggy and wagon wrench collection is top drawer, best we have had to catalog.

Patent information is from the DATAMP - Directory of American Tool & Machinery Patents

For abbreviations and book references used in our auction catalogs:  Click Here  Note: We are now using Dan Chopiak's "John Deere and Merged Companies Wrenches and Tools" as reference for the John Deere wrenches listed (abbreviated DC and number). Also we have added Ron Geesin's excellent book on English Wrenches (I mean spanners) "The Adjustable Spanner - History, Origins, and Development to1970" to our reference list (RC followed by the page No,)

A WORD ON CONDITION: Because of the character of their use and storage wrench condition can hardly be judged to the same standards as other tools. I try to use the broad categories of condition: Poor, Fair, Good, Good+, Good++, Excellent, and Excellent, like new. I also try to note all faults such as missing parts, cracks, pitting, over cleaning, repairs, etc. Likewise the wrenches in this auction that are in exceptional fine or excellent condition have been so noted, even a common wrench that has survived the years in almost unused condition is a rarity.

Other info:
* Measurements are usually rounded off to the nearest 1/4".
* The markings on the wrenches are in all capital letters.
* a / separates markings on one side of the wrench from the other side.
* If a wrench is misnumbered in a photo the description number will prevail.
* To search for a particular wrench or company (for example IHC, Deere, Coes, adjust etc,) use the find on this page in the edit menu. I have tried to list the company or companies associated with each wrench.

Order of Sale:

Hilary Klein's Miniature Wrenches (lots 311 and 312)

Hilary was well known in wrench collecting circles for his outstanding miniature wrenches in walnut cases with red velvet lining. he hand made in his basement for a limited number of subscribers for over twenty years.
