blue pant no i have sum nice red for this
Bob, this pic [attachment=2176] triggers my curiosity. Do you know what the engravings signify?
I think the crown means it was at one time owned by the forces (army ,air force ect)
My Dad had some very old spanners with the crown on them
He brought them home from his time in the air force
I think you are correct, also I think AM stands for Air Ministry - sometimes there is a date.
Nice job Bob. You took what looked to be a broken tool that was probably headed for the trash and made a respectable and useful tool out of it. Smiley-signs107

I wouldn't paint it Bob, it may be worth a few quid if it is old military.
