Old Cox wrenches and others

Post  roddie on Thu Jan 12, 2017 3:41 pm

I found these all together in an old flight-tote today. Not sure if the cross-style (Austin-Craft) is a model-engine wrench or not.. but the smallest size fits a std. glow-plug. The other sizes might be for various common prop-nuts. The one below it is made by Perfect-Products.

Austin Craft is a model company making all kinds of various parts. They work well until they split up the mold line. That takes a while but they eventually fail. Dubro makes a similar one without the mold lines which doesn't suffer that fate.

I have probably 6 or 7 Cox .049 wrenches. Recently, I scored some NIP Cox parts from a hobby shop that was going out of business after 75 years. They had a small cardboard box in the backroom.. and supposedly another.. Shocked

Notice in this photo; the package of .020 wrenches



There's "two" wrenches in that package. Laughing Pee Wee/Bee needles and a fine-thread needle. Notice the L/H starter-springs. The props are all L/H 6 x 2's.. which is std. prop on the PT19 Flight Trainer. No doubt they sold many of those airplanes over the years.. and kept that replacement-prop well-stocked. I'll bet that they sold every version of the PT19 that Cox made. Est. in 1939.. can you imagine the treasures over the years that could be found in that shop. I got Ron and Mark some stuff from there. Some Aero-Gloss, and .09 mufflers.

The owner told me that he "thought" there was another box of Cox stuff.. but it wasn't found before they closed-up shop 2 years ago. I'd like to think it was found.. but the owner had my cell# in case it was.

There are a few there that I don't recognize Eric. Nice collection.

I just bought a .020 wrench to service the Sky Copter, $5.50 on ebay shipped. Bernie has these too, but this one was sourced in the US and I could get it quicker.

Eric, the wrench on the left bottom picture is a Penn Fishing reel wrench. I believe the other is the mate the one that looks like a crescent wrench
