Just as the title says. What were they thinking...... Picked up some parts from a friend today at a funfly, and this was included. Why? What could the purpose possibly be? If anyone can think of any reasons, please enlighten me with it! Very Happy Also, along with the parts was this weird wrench (above the two Cox wrenches). Only marking on it is 'ACME'. Does anyone recognize it, or to what it possibly belongs. Only the small open end fits a standard glowplug. Hole in the handle does not. Thanks.

Also, as I believe that is finished, does anyone happen to know anything one can do with the buggered up tank?

The acme wrench is probably a old roller skate tool. That's my guess!! Mark

I immediately recognized the ACME wrench. It's not a fishing reel wrench. I'm a carpenter and that wrench is a pocket door hardware wrench. ACME still makes that wrench and I have them in my tool box. I usually bend them at a right angle to access the trolley wheels.

Acme was bought by Stanley!?
You’re both right!   I was leaning toward a Roadrunner/Coyote explosive timer ratchet setting wrench.

A very leaky funnel Chancey.

Or, polish it up and put it in your "It's a mystery to me" drawer.
