I realised I have a small collection of catalogues of metal items and felt I could start adding them into this blog.
I have only scanned my favourite pages, the other pages have some rather fetching leggings and hats.

Adjustable Wrench

Joan knocked on the office door and presented my with this lovely adjustable wrench, she said she was throwing it out and wondered if I would like it.
There are no markings on it.
A very simple but practical design.
Useful too.
