    This pair of adjustable pliers came with the Model T and Model A cars. Although it has the Ford logo on it these pliers was actually made by McKaig-Hatch. Their logo is on the other half of the pliers opposite of where the Ford logo is. It is about 6" long, standard for this type of pliers.
    What isn't standard is that the end of one of the handles is also a screwdriver. Ford replaced the screwdriver that came with the tool kit with this combination pliers screwdriver around 1913 if my research is correct.
    One very nice point about this pair of pliers is that I can use them. You can never have too many pliers especially as they tend not to be where they are supposed to be.

      I had to look at a pair that I have and keep handy. They look exactly the same but just say Fuller, Japan on them. Oh well. Mine have no rust and look somewhat cared for more and I cannot remember where I got them. Love your pair, and their history !

      Well until they slip open, and you bust a knuckle, Thomas. I like Channel Locks! :^D but if you're taking out a sink drain, you got to have those pliers! :^)

      Thank you very much Phil. Sounds like yours are from the 50s/60s just a quickie guess.

      Thank you very much Thomas. You can never,have too many pliers, working pins, glue, rolls of tape and all the other things that seems to be missing when needed.

      Thank you very much billretirecoll. The adjustable and the needle nose are go to's. After that I go to something tougher.
