Tool trivia
« on: June 07, 2014, 01:34:56 PM »
First let me thank both Lars-Olaf Tapper and Henk Brand for getting me some tools and a jack I needed. It was really good doing business with both of you.

I have attached some photos of the "T" style lug wrench for pre-war and early post-war (I think) 170 V and other cars. There are two designs, one with a piece of spring steel riveted onto to the hubcap claw, and the other with a spring loaded ball detent. Anyone know when either type was produced?

Also attached is a picture of a jack handle with wooden handle. I've never seen this type. Has anyone else seen one, and with what car?

Thanks Henry,

The jack handle with wood I bought long time ago together with other Mercedes parts.
I think it is a Mercedes tool. But not 100% sure.

The one with the wooden handle is the one that is shown in the parts manual for the 170s and one I have been looking for. I have the jack - just need to find the handle.

How do you know that is a wooden handle in the parts book? The all metal version looks just the same.

I was referring to the style of the complete wrench, rather than the specific handle, but yes, you are right - it could be one or the other in the catalog. In any event, the style of tool is the one I am looking for.
