old tool company logos… they had a lot more style than I see with new tools

January 31st, 2018 by admin

whether it was with riveted on plates, or stickers, I suppose those are water transfer type? They look pretty good to me, so I’ve been collecting the whole set on a post from a couple weeks ago.

Not only do I add new posts every day, I frequently fix or add to old posts.

So, what was only 4 logos a couple weeks ago, is a couple dozen, of most every brand of tool that had the stickers on the tool

Herbrand tools… was bought by Kelsey Hayes, the company that made good rims. Bonney history merged with them, as smaller tool companies couldn’t compete with less expensive imported lower quality tools

The Herbrand Company was founded in 1881 in Fremont, Ohio by Jacob Herbrand, Charles Thompson, and J.B. Van Doren.

By 1909 Herbrand’s products included carriage hardware, bicycle and automobile wrenches, and safety razors, and Thompson was the GM and President. Herbrand wasn’t mentioned again, so, sadly, seems to have lost his company, or sold it or died… but, hey, his name is now known, and no one knows anyone else that ran the company after him.

As the automobile gained popularity in the early 20th century, Herbrand expanded production of drop-forged tools for automobile tool kits.

During the 1920s and early 1930s Herbrand expanded their line of tools and became a supplier to high-volume retailers such as Western Auto Supply and Montgomery Ward. Western Auto catalogs from the early 1930s list Herbrand tools and mention their brand names “Van-Chrome” and “Multihex”.

By the 1960s the increasing competition in the tool industry had made it difficult to remain independent, and in 1961 Herbrand was acquired by the Kelsey-Hayes who had previously acquired Utica Tools in 1956, and Herbrand became part of their Utica Tools Division.

by 1964 they added Bonney Forge and Tool, and in 1967 sold out to Triangle, who was bought up by Cooper.

Bonney Vice and Tool Works was founded by Charles S. Bonney in Philadelphia in 1877, the company moved to Allentown, Pennsylvania in 1906.

In the 1950’s, it was acquired by Miller Manufacturing of Detroit,

Kelsey-Hayes was originally a manufacturer of automotive wheels and then brakes for a variety of American automakers and apparently, the diversification fever of the 60’s, decided to get into the tool business.

Enter H. Arthur Bellows Jr. He founded the Triangle Corporation of Stamford, Connecticut in 1967.

The following year, Triangle acquired Torque Controls, a manufacturer of torque wrenches, moving production from South Elmonte, California to Utica’s factory in Orangeburg, South Carolina in 1970.

At that point, the Utica firm was employing around 800 people, making about 200 models of pliers and over 1000 custom models, with an automotive tool line of over 1200 items. Under the brand name Utica/Bonney, the company was making around 50,000 tools per day.

In 1982, Triangle Tool went on to acquire the Diamond Tool and Horseshoe Company. Triangle merged with Audits/Surveys Worldwide, and the tool side was sold to the Cooper Tools Conglomerate in 1995.

oldest tool chest I’ve come across yet, and with a cool history

January 19th, 2018 by admin

A great grandfather’s cellar was getting cleaned out, but none of the family wanted this tool chest. So they put it out in a yard sale. $70.

Apparently his great grandfather worked for a Peerless auto dealership in Kansas City,

Bob wrote a great article about tools in the Model T forum on Facebook, and mentioned he has inherited tools from his dad, who was given them by his grand dad… that is so cool!

(and here is what he wrote:)
What Dad Taught Me About Lending and Borrowing Tools

The loan of a tool is a sacred, holy thing, especially when it involves that kind of rare, extremely hard-to-replace, vintage implement that does the job oh-so-much-better than anything manufactured in the last half-century (and you know the type I’m talking about; they’re always rust-colored without actually being rusty). Man, that’s an expression of trust!

I was brought up by a second-generation, Italian-American Dad in a paper paint hat, shoulder-strap undershirt and leather tool-belt. Grandpa wore the same uniform. Both made their livings as disciplined craftsmen and both treated their tools like a priest treats golden altar utensils. When he gave me my first bicycle, Dad, in ceremonial solemnity, withdrew from his tool cabinet, a satchel-grip of ancient hand tools—and with laser beam eye-contact, gave me permission to use them as I needed, explicitly conditional on their diligent care and return. One made certain to be careful with the tools Grandpa had handed down to Dad. Respect.

Well, Dad has been gone for a number of years and his tools are mine, now (and they sure as hell don’t go in the plastic bucket with my Harbor Freight junk). Some of them have the Ford imprint, for Giuseppe and Conrad were Ford men; and when I reach for one of those wrenches to use on my Model T—

which is identical to the car in the sepia-tone photo of Dad and Uncle Lou, for they two went partners on a 1915 Touring just before the war—I get a feeling of heart-tugging nostalgia. I gaze at that tool in my hand and from the archives of my memory, a video is selected much the same way an old Wurlitzer juke box would extract a single record from a horizontal stack of 45’s. As it plays, there’s Dad looking not quite forty years old, and he smiles patiently as he tells Bobby, not yet Bob, “Before you screw on the nut, turn it backwards till you feel the click; THEN spin it on.”

Recycled bike forks

January 16th, 2017 by admin

INSTEAD OF ADDING yet another bottle-opener to your already overcrowded bike, the Bike Fork Bottle Opener recycles the dropouts or forks of old, dead bikes and turns them into beer bottle-top poppers.

Made by Etsy-er EH84, each opener is unique, although you can specify the wrapping on the handle — you can choose between leather and rope. The results are brutally beautiful, and cost $30 each, which isn’t bad for a hand-crafted implement.
