    These are large and heavy - the largest about 12-14 inches and 1/2 inch thick. Can anyone identify?

      Design and the oddity size of the one 23/32....would lead me to guess...just guessing 1940's-50's

      These old boys never wore out. I have a bunch of them but mine are more rusty. Long ago some genius decided we needed both SAE and Metric. That is where the odd sizes came along. Now everyone knows they need two sets of tools to do a simple job.

      You're "Welcome" example of what fhr was talking about....a 19/32 wrench is same as 15 mm. Odd sized where used in USA, because we use inch standard sizes, while the rest of the world used metric (except UK...Imperial measure), back in the day...but some of us old timers remember the Handyman / Auto mechanic with his little shop downtown in the Service Station...sometimes an import would need attention...then odd size would come out of the drawer

      These go back to the day of the when square head fasteners were common.
      Old farm machinery came with their own wrenches to fit the nuts that were used.
      23/32 does not match a metric dimension.
    8. kerry10456 kerry10456, 9 years ago're correct...those pesky square taps....never can find two the same lol

      That's why Dad had a crescent wrench on every tractor & equipment toolbox :-)

      Thank you walksoftly, kerry10455, fhrjr2! My father farmed & also had a Texaco station in the 30s-40s! So you have helped me piece these together! Perhaps I could make some type of decoration????? Ha! Wish I had the service station sign!

      Why not make a shadow box.
