Flea market find last weekend art Burlington, Ky. A pair of Cincinnati Tool Company / Hargrave 710 handscrews, in good working condition. I cleaned them up a little, they were caked with old glue and years of gunk.

After cleaning I found the USAAF stamp. United States Army Air Forces.They were in business from June 1941 – September 1947.

I bought them to use, and I have used 1 on a project I’m working on. When I was a kid, I thought everything was made in Cincinnati. I can’t say that anymore. Military connection is a bonus. $15 well spent.

That’s awesome. I’d gladly pay as well.

I’d definitely have to agree, $15 well spent. Good for you!

If you happen to find any more (1) and are willing to trade, I think I’d be able to dig up something you might be interested in.
