A quick brush got rid of most of the grime:
Makes what I presume is a date more obvious - 1958:
The bits and pieces:
I cleaned out the hole that the pin threads into in case there was debris in there that was causing the pin to bind:
Spring reinstalled into the cavity on the knurl, dynamic jaw installed, pin starting to thread back in:
The knurling has held up a lot better than the Garrington Jackdaw that we recently cleaned up - harder metal? Less use? Better knurling? No idea:
All assembled again:
Looks like it was once painted on the inside of the handle:
It's reasonably hefty at 433gm.
I can't find a lot on the company at this stage - still researching. In use this wrench is nicer to use than the Garrington Jackdaw, with a tighter movement of the jaw in and out and a more positive "bite" on the bolt. Keep in mind that the knurling on the Jackdaw was much more worn, though, so that may be down to the individual wrench being more used... I need to acquire more of them to get a better picture! The Temmah jaws are also slightly pointier compared to the Jackdaw, which can help with access.
Know anything more about the company? Or why there's a 43 after Temmah? Please drop me a line on the contact page.
